Stevia And Diets
There are many diets out there that will help you lose weight. Many dieters prefer to lose weight with the aid of supplements such as Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Raspberry Ketones etc… however, even with those supplements it is ideal to also change your diet to not only ensure best weight loss but also to create healthy eating habits which can allow you to more easily keep the weight you lose from coming back. One suggestion on a simple change you can make to your cooking is to find a sugar substitute so you still get the sweetness without the added calories. A wonderful sweetener that can be used on any diet whether using supplements or not is Stevia.
A History Of Stevia
Stevia comes from the leaf of the stevia plant. It comes in liquid form as well as a powdered form. The liquid form is preferable to the powdered form when dieting because it is less likely to have added sweeteners such as Erythritol or Dextrose. The liquid also comes in a variety of flavors such as lemon, orange, vanilla cream, chocolate raspberry and root beer plus many many more flavors. They can be used to create low calorie recipes, or simply add to your water to create different flavors which can help you steer away from beverages that can slow weight loss. Since it is recommended to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day, regardless of whether or not you are dieting the different flavors can make doing so much easier.
Using stevia in the place of sugars in baking and recipes is also a great way to have sweet snacks throughout the day without adding the calories that sugar would add. For instance if you are craving something sweet, you can cut up an apple, sprinkle it with cinnamon and stevia and microwave it for 60 seconds. It tastes just like a warm apple pie without the calories 🙂 Use stevia to sweeten tea and coffee (use different flavors to have flavored tea/coffee) as well. There are so many ways to use Stevia in every day life that will help you maximize weight loss while dieting and can help maintain weight loss by minimizing calories after dieting.
