Weight loss Mystery #1: Should I drink iced tea or hot tea? Hot tea!!! Yes, iced tea will give your brain the wrong message of preserving extra energy resource and building extra insulation (fat). If someone tells you to drink iced tea to lose weight owing to fewer calories, they are treating you like a piece of wood! A normal human body is full of feedback mechanisms in the central nerve system (CNS). The next time you go to a restaurant, do not drink too much of that free ice water! During pre-refrigerator era, not many people could access to ice besides winter, so you would not see many overweight people in old films or pictures. Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 2013 “New York City soft drink size limit rule” could be replaced with an “ice limit rule” for less opposition and more effective to control obesity.
Weight Loss Mystery #2: How do I avoid the weight loss roller coaster? Regaining weight after losing it is common and very disappointing! Along with making long-term, sustainable changes to your eating and exercise routines, we recommend: 1). take 0.5 – 2 tabs of ChewFull right before your main meal daily to control your appetite and avoid over-eating; 2). taking 1-2 caplets of BrainGlucose at bedtime. A smooth and steady blood sugar level during the post-midnight period can calm your brain so that you do not crave calories during the day.
