The other day I talked about flavouring your water with lemon, how healthy it is for you, and how it can help you lose weight. Today I want to branch off and talk about other water flavours, such as Tang. I absolutely LOVE Tang!
Tang, used to be a powder (created for astronauts) that you could mix with water to make an easy, sugary juice, as my mom so eloquently puts it, “It was good as shit!”. Thankfully, now they have made an alternative to the sugary powder and provide an artificially sugary squirt flavouring by the same name.
How Tang Has Changed My Life
I made it my mission to drink lots of water. I find drinking at least 2L a day helps my skin, digestive system, and keeps my mind and my tummy away from food. Drinking plain water can be difficult though, after the first two glasses it feels like a chore and my body sort of reacts to it negatively “I have had enough!” and it or my brain will say this by making me be almost grossed out by the thought of drinking more. However, when I discovered Tang I could drink 2L and more without a second thought! It’s like a treat without the shame of sugar! It tastes like juice, it looks like juice, but in no way does it have the backlash that carbalicious juice (freshly squeezed or not) has!
The Benefits of Drinking Tang
What I Recommend
So, if you are starting to increase your water consumption, I definitely recommend buying a little squirt bottle of Tang. But do I recommend only drinking water mixed with Tang? No. You should be training your body to accept and be grateful for any of the water it is given. Start by drinking a glass of plain water, then if you feel like you don’t want to continue, switch it up with Tang, then with lemon water and plain water again; you don’t want to develop a dependancy for the taste. You can also add it to diet Jello for an added taste sensation.
Overall, Tang is great, but at the end of the day it is the water that is the real star of this story. Water flushes out the toxins from your body, keeps your liver healthy, keeps your skin clear and vibrant, helps with digestion and avoid constipation, prevents muscle cramps, and most importantly, for your weight loss journey; helps you lose weight. Water is an amazing and essential part to your journey whether it really does keep you full during a craving wave or just keeps your mind off of eating (because how could you possibly eat, when you still have six cups to drink by 12pm??!!).
