    What to do: Replace juice with unsweetened tea everyday for the next 7 days

    If you're looking for a quick tip to help you see faster success with your weight loss program, this challenge is for you. Your mission this time is to replace all the juice you're drinking with tea instead.

    Why take this challenge? Let's look at the reasons.

    1. Why Juice Is A No-No For Weight Loss And Maintenance

    The very first reason to forgo juice when on a diet plan is because juice is going to cause you to run up your daily calorie intake in a hurry. Juice is loaded with simple sugars and will pack in far more calories than a piece of real fruit would, making it difficult to reach your weight loss target.

    What's more is that since these calories are coming from sugar, they'll produce an insulin spike followed by crash. This will leave you very hungry for more food. It's an ongoing cycle that's difficult to get out of once you start.

    2. Why Tea Is Smarter

    Tea is a much healthier option because it's completely calorie free, it contains no added sugars, and many varieties of tea also offer health benefits.

    If you choose to have Green tea, you'll get powerful antioxidants working in your body that will help to boost your defence against cancer. Additionally, Green tea can help to enhance your metabolic rate as well, making fat loss that much easier.

    3. Which Teas To Choose

    Any green tea will work perfectly for this challenge, whether it's straight green tea or fruit flavored green tea. If you'd prefer not to go with green tea, then fruit herbal teas work great, as does chamomile tea as well.

    When serving up your tea, just be sure that you don't add extra sugar to sweeten it. This would effectively make it just as bad as the fruit juice was, taking away from the benefits this challenge is going to bring you.

    Instead, sweeten it with a little Stevia or try adding a slice of lemon instead for a totally different and unique flavor. Some people may also want to consider adding a cinnamon stick as well if that's a flavor preference that you have.

    So stop with the fruit juice already. It's just as bad for your health as soda and will not move you any closer to your goal weight.
