THE POWER OF
THE RED TEA DETOX
You’re staring at your computer screen with weary eyes. Dinner has come and gone, but that
oh-so-familiar beast we call Hunger has reeled its damn head again.
But you can’t snack after eight o’clock, right? That’s weight loss rule number one. Or is it?
I’m about to share with you some helpful truths for a situation of this kind.
There’s an ironic flipside to my mostly honorable label of “Liz Swann Miller – Weight Loss
Expert.” I must strictly resign myself to the continuous expectation the general public
attributes to the title – that I have it together.
Liz would never gain excessive amounts of weight. Liz would never give in to that looming
golden M on the highway. Liz doesn’t snack late at night. How does Liz do it?
Let me tell you a secret. Liz struggles. Liz feels the exact temptations you feel, and resists the
exact pulls you resist.
As this “Weight Loss Expert,” I often need to remind myself not only to pursue a healthy
lifestyle in order to fulfill the expectation of my title and my career, but for my optimal wellbeing.
The temptation, for me, is at its worst late at night, during that time when I’ve supposedly
declared eating over, yet I’m fighting hunger, bleary-eyed, answering hundreds of emails
from clients seeking advice for topics such as this.
