You’re doing well on an easy diet while reading a good book, or on the computer all night and your eyes are heavy and weary. Dinner has come and gone, but that oh-so-familiar beast we call Let Me Eat is whispering in your ear.
It’s haunting you again to surrender that weight management crap.
You can’t snack after 7:30 pm with the low-carb-diet plan you’re following, but you’re tempted. That’s ideal body weight loss rule number one. Or is it?
I’m about to share with you some helpful truths for a situation of this kind, and for an easy diet to maintain ideal body weight.
There’s an ironic flip side to my mostly honorable label of scientific research and those weight loss experts.
I must strictly resign myself to the continuous expectation the general public attributes to the title– that I have it together.
Experts would never gain excessive amounts of weight. They would never give in to that looming eat after 7pm theory.
Weight-loss gurus don’t snack late at night.
How do they do it?
Let me tell you a secret. These experts do have struggles, and they feel the exact temptations you feel, and resist the exact pulls you resist.
For me as a writer, speaker, and researcher of ways for a better life including a healthy diet, I often need to remind myself I’m only human.
After all, the Course in Miracles reminds us through its many spiritual metaphysical principles and lessons that, “Do I want the problem or do I want the answer.”
I’m not only to pursue a healthy lifestyle in order to fulfill the expectation of my title and my career, but for my optimal well-being.
But I do make mistakes and have my weaknesses.
The temptation, for me, is at its worst late at night, during that time when I’ve supposedly
declared eating over, yet I’m fighting hunger, bleary-eyed, answering hundreds of emails from clients seeking advice for topics such as an easy diet.
Yes, it’s important to note that hunger is a basic survival instinct–and we must be in tune to the fact that an easy diet isn’t always easy.
Just know how to appease the beast.
There are those who claim the easy diet or the healthy diet, and are those which have you eating only two meals a day, and drinking water for the rest.
I strongly encourage you to ignore these lose weight in a week methods, as they are not sustainable.
The secret is snacking.
(This similar article is appropriate here, it’s about how to lose fat and lose 10 pounds fast naturally and easy.)
Yes, but I don’t mean digging around in a bag of chocolate chip cookies and then putting extra jelly on your PB & J sandwich, or pouring gobs of caramel and butter on your popcorn (we’ve all been there).
But I do mean sprinkling a plate with some organic nuts.
Be inventive, but clever about it and always be choosing the right food in moderation for your goals to remain alive.
Let’s talk about the late-night secret for an easy diet. It’s simple.
It’s a cup of Red Tea.
Yes, red tea detox either iced or hot, it’s up to your mood.
Don’t underestimate those three words before bed, but rather in the gap between dinner and sleep.
My go-to is the always delicious, always sufficient Red Tea. It satisfies the hunger itch and leaves me feeling clean, revitalized and calm, primarily due to its detoxifying properties.
And it is caffeine free–so don’t fear, you won’t be bouncing from the walls.
After my extensive studies around fat-burning solutions, the myths and the answers, I created this tea with ingredients selected carefully for late night cravings and overall ideal body weight.
The benefits are endless, but the solution is simple.

Set yourself a challenge for this easy diet, and put this just in front of your low carb diet plan as they work together.
I’ll be right there with you.
Ditch the chips, the ice cream, and the guilty pleasure cheese blocks.
Get the kettle bubbling and pour yourself a steaming mug of Red Tea detox.
I guarantee– you will fall in love with the taste– and late night cravings will be a.
Do as I do and make a huge pot for extra and chill the excess in the fridge for the next day for an afternoon treat of iced Red Tea.
