Tea tip #1: Halve the number of teaspoons of sugar in your tea/coffee. E.g. if you put 3 sugars, only use 1.5 teaspoons. If you have two, cut down to 1 teaspoon.
Tea tip #2: Add a shaving of ginger and/or lemon to your tea. Not only do they add flavour to your tea, but are good for your all-round health. Lemon is a natural detox for your body and ginger is good for maintaining a healthy stomach and digestive system.
Tea tip #3: Tea time is the perfect time to have that little sugary treat you've aching for all day. Just one little treat such as a row of chocolate or a biscuit a day with your tea/coffee will eventually beat your urges for high-carb and high-sugar foods all the time. This is because your body learns to expect that treat and no longer craves for it (for your body knows that it's going to get it). However, you must moderate this intake of sweet treats - too much WILL ruin your efforts to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.
