I'm mostly thursty.... what can I drink that will help fill in as snack?
I think I've figured out one of the reasons that I snack so much.... its because I'm thirsty..... I love skim milk... I could drink it all day! I love smoothies.... I love juice! I do drink water but its not filling.... and gets boring.
What can I drink that will help substitute snacks? Something I can drink frequently at work (I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day... thats another one of my problems).
Tea maybe? I don't know, water is pretty much my first choice and I find it as filling as any juice, tea, coffee or soda. Milk is more filling, but I really don't enjoy more than an occasional small glass of milk.
I should have added that I don't drink caffeinated beverages.... no teas, no coffee, no soda..... except sprite zero and root beer those are my only 2 soda choices.... no diet sodas except for the sprite zero.
So I have sprite zero and water...... but I'd really love some other juice or smoothie choices. Thanks
Could you drink decaf tea? My favorite brand is Mighty Leaf. It's very pricey (found at Whole Foods) but soooo good.
Another drink I love is Swiss Miss low calorie hot cocoa. Yummy, filling, comfort drink! All you need is some hot water.

I do a 12 oz. can of seltzer (sometimes plain, sometimes a flavor) and 4 oz. of juice. If you going to be drinking a lot, though, you may want to try to get away with 2 oz. of juice. Or sometimes for juice, I will use a scoop of frozen juice concentrate.
