The first month and a half of a diet are the worst. At least it was for me. The more I knew I couldn’t eat fats and sugary food, the more I craved them. And none of the tricks my doctor had taught me were working either. I was sure I was about to give up and go back to junk food but I knew I hadn’t come this far for anything. Then a friend of mine suggested I took an all-natural supplement that she had been taking for months to control her blood sugar levels.
I confess that when I heard the name for the first time it sounded so odd. Wild Chaga mushroom tea? This was the magic supplement that would allow me to control my blood sugar levels and my cravings? It all sounded like one of those bogus supplements they try to make you buy on infomercials, you know? But she vouched for it and guaranteed me that all I really needed was to believe in the organic Chaga benefits. And you know what? She was right. I think I started to feel the effects in the first week. I couldn’t believe it at first, I thought it was the diet finally working but my doctor assured me that cravings don’t just stop overnight. Whatever I was doing I should keep at it because it was leading me in the right direction.
And my energy levels are through the roof too! I hadn’t felt like taking long walks in the morning in years. To be honest, I don’t think I ever felt like exercising. But since I began taking the wild Chaga mushroom tea every morning, I feel more rested at night and in the morning, I just have this urge to be active, but not with that energy boost of caffeine that makes you more anxious than active actually.
