Intermittent fasting is a method of eating where you don’t change what you eat, but rather when you eat. (Goodbye calorie counting, helloooo delicious carbs). With intermittent fasting, you choose an eating window and a fasting window and stick to it every day.
The most popular eating window is 12-8 PM. This means you are consuming calories during this eight-hour period, and only drinking water (or some bomb TEA) for the rest of the day. Read on to discover why tea is your absolute best friend when it comes to this method of eating.
Good hydration is the foundation of any wellness plan, including intermittent fasting. But guzzling water can get boring QUICK. Tea is a delicious way to stay hydrated during both your fasting and eating windows. Since our teas are calorie-free, they’re one of the few drinks you can have that won’t break a fast!
It’s likely you’ll find once you start intermittent fasting that you have more energy. This is because your body isn’t constantly trying to digest food from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep. Without intermittent fasting, many people graze on food all the time, so their bodies are constantly working to keep up.
Drinking tea will give you another energy kick on top of this. Our caffeinated teas are designed to give you a smooth and steady supply of energy without the jitters that come with coffee.
Both tea and intermittent fasting are fantastic for you on a cellular level. Tea is rich in polyphenols, which are antioxidants that detoxify the body.
