Like me, if you love to cook and eat, you must have come to this conclusion at least once in your life: someday you'll have to go on a diet. I'm almost 40 and this time has come! 5 years ago I quit smoking and gained some weight, I promised myself I'll take care of this when I'll be sure not to smoke anymore.
So here I am, with my 5 years plans, on a diet since the 18th of January, 2010. Going through this is not as difficult as I first thought: I keep cooking for my family and friends, which is already half-satisfying and I have chosen a diet which is easy for me to follow. Hope to reach my goal soon and at this point I'm 9 kg less than when I started so it looks like it's going just fine.
The difficult thing about the diet is the water factor. I have to drink a lot of water each day and I must admit I'm not so keen a water. I like sweet drinks. Coffee is far too exciting and tea in great quantity becomes too bitter for me. So let me introduce you to my diet best friend : Kusmi Tea detox.
It comes in a very beautiful green box, and it's a blend of maté, green tea flavoured with lemon and lemon grass. I just LOVE it. Don't need to add sugar or sweetener because the taste and smell are so great. The balance of flavours is perfect. With the help of my little green friend I can take my water ratio each day and in a pleasant way.
Here is my best friend's best friend: my beloved Chinese double-glass tea bottle. Keeps the precious tea warm and is nice to watch at.
