Hi ladies,

Back from a hiatus I have been perusing the boards the past couple of days. I would say I qualify as an overeater. Dang it. Any how--a few weeks ago my acupuncturist, who knew I was trying to get my mind to the place it needs to be to lose some weight, suggested Health King Sugar Controller Tea. He said he has a weakness for sugar too & this tea seemed to help curb his cravings. He even gave me a few bags to try. (I have the best acupuncturist ) I tried it, thought...mmmm....maybe...& went ahead and ordered 4 boxes from Amazon. I don't know if it really works or it's a placebo but regardless I am finally off sugary treats for now. I was on box #2 before I even tried to stop the treats & so far I have been feeling pretty good about it, not as tempted as usual & no cravings. I haven't been in control of my sugar weakness for some time so I thought I'd share in case it might help anyone else. Not a paid promotion of any kind . Let me know if you try it or have tried it & have any luck.

Welcome back to the forums.

I'll look for that tea. thanks for suggesting it. Do you drink it often? Until it's pretty cold I prefer room temp tea. Is it ok at room temp?

I've been using Laci Le Bleu in Apricot. I've also tried the lemon one. They also help curb the cravings.

Yes! I do drink it often. I usually make a cup by lunch - I have a hot water kettle & heat the water to 160 - then drink it either hot or room temp. Sometimes I leave my cup before it's done & never hesitate to drink it when I return to it. I don't drink it cold either. Hot or room temp. Then I simply refill my cup w/hot water & continue to use the same bag until it's lost it's flavor--2 or 3 cups. I drink water & hot tea throughout the day so I may go through 1 or 2 bags of this and 1 bag of green tea for example, just depending. I will look up the ones you suggested too. Are they very fruity? I really don't have much of a taste for fruity teas. I like them very simple & plain but am always looking for suggestions.

I love herbal teas and I really believe they can be useful in curbing cravings, although it depends on the person to person. But to be honest, i don't like the commercial ones sold on Amazon etc. i like to prepare my own. Dr. Sharol has shared some excellent recipes on her blog.

Even though I recommit to diet/exercise/health in the beginning of the year, it takes me about a month to get going. I'm now back on track and ready to go.
