So as regards those words of wisdom promised; in this short post I will start small. One of the key pieces of advice I've read time & time again is to be sure that you are properly hydrated.
Water is of course the first response in staying hydrated, particularly on the run. However if drinking the prerequisite liter of water just isn’t floating your boat :P then one very nice alternative is green tea. The joy of it is that you can mix it up by using other ingredients with a good green tea as a base. This allows you to meet one of the other hard and fast rules of dieting and that is to keep variety in your food and to keep adding different flavours. In my case anyway, boredom is always death to a diet.
How tea aids weight loss is a question I am going to explore throughout this blog. This involves a fair bit of research so I will work through it, as well as providing my own tips and inviting you to share yours. If there is anything in particular you want me to look up, just give me a shout.
