Keep us posted on your Shangri La coffee. Is it producing AS for you? SandyDown
I had heard the same re: green tea and didn't notice my metabolism speeding up either... so I agree with you.
I had found if I drink my "sweet stevia" tea continuously throughout the day there is AS... but as soon as I stop drinking it there is no more AS and I want to eat. And I don't think it's because I'm hungry... I think it's emotional or psychological like SandyDown said. So that's kind of a downer.
I added oil today since I hadn't had any in over a week. I didn't keep the hour window with regards to my tea but I did regarding food. I noticed I didn't crave my afternoon popcorn that I usually do. (That's a good thing :lol:) I have also heard/read that your body must have oil to lose weight... I'm told omega oils are best.... like OO or Flaxseed oil. I will continue with the tea but will also see if adding the oil continues to work on the AS. Hopefully that way I won't have to worry about being compulsive about the tea and continuously drinking it to keep the AS going. IndianGirl
I've used ELOO for SLD and cook with it. And I use Flaxseed oil for SLD but don't cook with it.
What put me in a tailspin was that we had company for 4 days. We were constantly on the go. I couldn't do my tea and we seemed to do nothing but eat! So after last week... I gained instead of losing!
So frustrating. And just when I thought I was getting a handle on this thing. So here I am starting over AGAIN... hoping to find Shangri-La one more time!
