    lipton diet green tea

    Primal Fuel
    First off let me say thanks to Mark and the whole primal community. My life has changed for the better since I have started my new, primal life. I'm still new to the life style and I'm trying to piece a few things together. Water and milk have been my beverages of choice since my transformation. I have a question about Lipton diet green tea. It contains zero sugar and zero carbohydrates. It supposedly contains a good bit of antioxidants. Is this ok to drink? I want to be as grokingly, grok as possible, so that's why I'm coming to you guys for advice. Here is a link to the nutrition facts. Let me know something. Thanks.http://www.liptont.com/our_products/...en_citrus.aspx

    The link didn't work, so I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right product, but if you're talking about the drink in a plastic bottle, no, it's not at all primal. Here are the ingredients:
    Water, citric acid, sodium hexametaphosphate (to protect flavor), green tea, natural flavor, ascorbic acid (to protect flavor), potassium sorbate (preserves freshness), phosphoric acid, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, pectin, calcium disodium edta (to protect flavor), caramel color, yellow 5, blue 1.

    Just make green tea using tea leaves. Then you get the antioxidants without the preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavorings, etc.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    You can buy loose leaf green tea and make your own for pennies per cup. Then it is primal.

    The bottled stuff tastes like condoms smell to me... it's disturbing. lol

    Making your own tea is super cheap and much tastier!
