And then on Friday night, I needed to take drinks to a get-together. I absent-mindedly grabbed two gallons of Swiss tea and went on my merry way. It wasn't until after the evening was over (and I had already drank a nice tall glass of the Peach flavored tea) that I realized the word diet was on the label.
Fast forward to Saturday. Now, before I continue, please note that this is a completely unofficial experiment. I do not have any proof. Instead, I am speculating...
You see, I have been working really hard to lose some weight. And, thus far, I have found my hunger fairly easy to control. It's been difficult but not impossible. Until yesterday. Yesterday I was STARVING all day. I could not seem to satisfy my hunger.
Now it could have been my hormones. That is possible, as they are fairly unpredictable right now.
BUT, the other thing I couldn't help but remember is that I had had diet tea the night before. Could that have possibly been the culprit of my insatiable hunger?
I don't really know, but the possibility of that cause and effect was enough to ensure that I will not be drinking any more diet drinks.
Has anyone else noticed a correlation between diet drinks and hunger?
