Making It Easier to Eat the Right Foods - Slique Tea/Essence week 2


I had a 2.6 pound loss this week. 
WOW!  I
 really was not expecting that.  
That is 6 lbs in 2 weeks. 

Some have asked how I am doing it. I am using Slique Tea and Slique Essence to compliment my Weight Watchers.

I follow the Simply Filling food plan on Weight Watchers.  It is where you eat Filling Foods on a list.  If you eat a food item that is not on the list, then you count points toward you extra points for the week or use some of your activity points.  Since I like clean eating, it is a great fit for my family and I.  I really try to limit my processed foods – but I am not always successful at it.  My biggest problem is my sugar and carb cravings.  I have them most of the time.  When stressful times hit, I give in.  And when I give in, I can’t stop eating them. 

This year has been extremely stressful.  I was doing good for a while and then I gave in.  The problem is that when I am doing well – I may choose to not eat sugar and carbs, but I still want them a lot.  I able to resist the desire to eat sugar and carbs for a while. 

Enter Slique Tea and Slique Essence. 

Since beginning to use Slique Tea and Slique Essence, I am not just choosing to resist sugar/ carbs - I really don't want them.  Using these products is making it easier to choose the right foods.  My food cravings are gone.

Here is a very basic glimpse into my day.

Morning:
I am drinking one cup of Slique Tea with a breakfast of  2-3 scrambled eggs and some fruit (seasonal).  
I have 2 oz Nigxia Red.  
I also have a glass of water with Slique Essence that I drink throughout the morning.


Lunch:
I teach kindergarten. So, I have an early lunch on weekdays (10:40).  I usually eat leftovers from the night before or a sandwich.  My lunches always have fruit and vegtables for over half of the meal. 

I usually refill my water glass and add either Slique Essence or another citrus oil.

Snack: (around 1 pm with my students)
I usually have raw veggies or apple with some cheese, almonds/ nuts/ seeds or meat. 


Around 3:30, I sometimes have another cup of Slique Tea.  I also refill my water glass and add slique essence. 
I usually intent to leave school around 5.  On the commute home, I eat carrot chips or an apple.

Dinner is usually 6:00 – 6:30.  This will be a meal filled with simply filling foods.

If I start wanting to eat sugar, I drink water with Slique Essence after supper. 


I am very excited with my results so far!!!!!  I can’t wait to see what next Saturday will hold.
