I Tried To Drink Green Tea For Health Benefits

Here Is How It Went…

It Did Not Go Well

I stopped drinking coffee in October and I am very proud of myself for this, but the only way I stopped was to replace it with green tea (sweetened of course). I love it and would have it almost every day. Until today…

Today I decided to try to be healthier (less sugars) and obviously green tea is amazing for boosting your metabolism, so I gave it a shot. I picked up an unsweetened green tea from Starbucks on my way to work and I was not satisfied. Also, people at work kept joking that it looked like pee.

Call me unhealthy or whatever you want, but I have a sweet tooth, so forcing myself to drink this green tea straight was difficult. I tried ripping the bandaid off and drinking it fast, but that was a terrible idea. Nasty. I figured I would get used to it if I continued to drink it, but it was gross to the very end.

Guess how long it took me to finish it… 4 hours. YUP.

Guess what I had for dinner… a BBQ cheese burger… NO regrets.

Was this successful? No, but I felt better about eating dinner!

I have no self control when it comes to creating healthy eating habits and most of me wouldn’t think twice about that. Right now I work too much to have a strict gym schedule so I figured I would try some other ways to get whatever help I can. Will I go back to unsweetened green tea? No. Will I stop trying? No.

Here is what I am going to do… Slowly add less and less sugar, hopefully I will train myself to eventually like it. In the meantime, I guess I’ll have to just give up my love of unhealthy food for a while. I’ll let you know how it goes, but if you have any reasonable suggestions – definitely let me know!
