    Default Addicted to Sweet Tea

    Hi Girls,I introduced myself about a week ago..and I'm a big time lurker....I go on August 11th. to get started..Anyone have any suggestions on how to stop drinking sweet tea before then? I literally drink a pitcher a day..I live in s.c. and have drank sweet tea all my life..I weigh 153 and I'm hoping to get to 130-135. I'm so excited to start..also I am on Cymbalta for stress and Fibromyalgia..did you tell your clinic about being on a anti-depressant? Thanks for any help...Laurie

    I have drank sweet tea all of my life as well! I am in Alabama. A few years ago I started making tea and adding a bunch of equal or sweet n low to the entire container. You can make it as sweet as you'd like. Try it and see how it works for you. Good luck!!

    OMG when I saw this subject and I just had to reply! This is actually my first post haha. But I'm about to go introduce myself in the other forum. I was addicted to Sweet Tea and Coke! Every other night I would drive to sonic and get a route 44 Sweet Tea nothing else! Everywhere I went...Mcdonalds, Whataburger.. you name it.. If they had sweet tea I had to have it! Let me tell you, If I could do it you can both. Today is August 2nd and I havent had a sweet tea or Coke since July 19th (okay maybe a sip of coke)! Yes, your gonna get sick and tired of downing water all day so what I did is I bought Lipton instant tea and some splenda. SweetnLow and those others have aspartamine.. I don't know I heard that stalls weightloss.. It's not the same but its healthyier. Good Luck Ladies

    I cut out most of my sodas over a year ago. Every now and then I will drink one as a treat. I drink alot of crystal light. I cannot use splenda, personally, because for some reason I cannot even tell its in my tea. I know people that do use it, though. I figured that I would have a coke every now and then because if I don't I will end up buying a whole 2 liter!!

    I can drink unsweet tea and I can drink it with Splenda BUT I love my sweet tea. I make it at home but I don't make it too sweet, just enough. I went to McDonalds and to Wendy's and their tea is way too sweet, so I am cutting them out and making my own to take to work.

    I'm in Florida, and like you guys, tea is a part of our lives. We just need to make it less sweet or use something to make it taste sweet.

    we did a post on this several months back. i take topamax so therefore soft drinks taste funny to me. i have been on the sweet tea kick now for about 3 years. i live in NC and trust me it is sweet. i do use the decaf. and have started adding extra water in my cup everytime i fix me some. in the summer i can drink a gal a day as well. i will go off on my kids if they drink my tea. they have their own drinks. lol everyone in the house knows that if its only a small amount in the pitcher left-you better not touch it!!!! i have gone in to DT's from not having my tea. this week i am at the beach and girl -i brought my own tea with me!!! if you go to the search bar and look up triggers-that is where you will find all the post we did on sweet tea and other types of triggers.

    Default Try this.....

    For those than cant kick the sweet tea habit, splenda(made from real sugar cane) makes a half sugar half splenda mix in the granuales just like regular sugar (usually found on the baking isle).....It's a little expensive but use this to get yourself used to the splenda. Once your used to it them switch over to the full splenda blend.
    There is also the other sweetners, Equal, Sweetnlow and so forth. Some believe that these can cause cancer which if you were to eat a truck load at a time then yes it will. ( I know this cause my father did lab tests) But remember these are artificial so your body might not prefer these and make you bloated and so forth.
    Personally splenda is the only one that doesnt leave the taste of an artificial sweetner.

    Good Luck....
