How to stop binge eating after dinner.
I struggle with this daily! I eat clean all day then after dinner
something triggers my brain into thinking it needs more of whatever
sweet treats I have in the house.
I am then into everything in sight.. chocolate, cookies, icecream whatever...
So over the last few weeks I've been trying different teas after dinner to try & curb this from happening.
Here are my results:
I found that drinking black tea sometimes led to wanting tim tams.... because you cant have a cup of English Breakfast tea without dunking a bickie! Plus it the extra caffieene keeps me awake.
Peppermint tea helps a lot, its like having that 'just brushed your teeth' feeling & makes my cravings less.
The winner tho is Licorice tea. Licorice root is up to 60 times sweeter than sugar so I am pleasing my brain by giving it that sugar hit its cravings but looking after my wasit line by not consuming ALL those extra calories.
