I've heard something similar. If you struggle with the munchies, have a strong mint like an altoid or a listerine strip. It'll ruin the taste of anything that you put in your mouth, thus lessening the urge to munch!
I know that many people often struggle with drinking an adequate amount of water throughout the day. A lot of people get bored with it, and will end up drinking juice or soda (which is where a lot of those extra calories come from!).
I have seen many people suggest adding a wedge of lemon or lime to their water to make it more flavorful so you drink more water. I must say that I have personally validated that tip, it works for me!
However, when you're on the go with a bottle of water, are you stashing wedges of lemon or lime in your pocket or purse? Probably not! But, I have found this really cool stuff that is 0 calories and does not have that icky artificial sweetener taste. It's called True Lemon! They also have True Lime and True Orange. It's apparently cold-pressed and crystalized citrus. They come in little packets (1 packet = 1 wedge). They look almost like sugar packets (easy to carry with you!)
I LOVE this stuff. Got a few of my coworkers hooked on it too. You can use it in other things too, like club soda and tea! I even noticed in a box of True Lemon I have that there is a chicken recipe in there!
They also came out with lemonade that is sweetened with stevia (which makes me less nervous than other artificial sweetners because it's natural). The website is www.truelemon.com
Some supermarkets have it in different spots. I've seen it in the baking aisle by the sugars and stuff, the coffee/tea aisle, and where the juice mixes are. Christmas Tree Shoppes had it too. Hope this tip helps you all!
P.S.: Another interesting flavor to add to water: peel and thinly slice a cucumber and put all the slices in a pitcher of water! Keep it in the fridge! I know it sounds weird, but I had water like this at a really nice Spanish restaurant and it was so refreshing!View Thread
