I like to think of myself as a health freak. Yes, I can tell you how many calories are in a tall, sugar free, nonfat vanilla latte from Starbucks….90 for those keeping score at home. There’s one mystery though that still baffles me. What is the deal with green tea? I have read so many stories on the Internet and seen infomercials of people saying they’ve lost weight drinking TONS of green tea. I tried experimenting with green tea about a month ago. I drank about 3 cups each day and saw zero change in my waistline. If anything, drinking the stuff makes me more wired than my normal cup of coffee from Starbucks! Has anyone used any green tea products that they would stand by and say it helped them lose weight??
Some tips here:
There are numerous functions of green tea 1 the antioxidents wich would not be visual but the cantonese drink it when they are eating a high fat meal so as to absorb less of the fat and have it pass through in your stool.
Green Tea helped me to lose 17lbs in 12 weeks, of course I was on a diet and I exercised 4-5 times a week. The only problem I had with it was the sweating and going to the bathroom all of the time, but that is the detox part of it. I replaced my morning coffee with it, although it doesn’t give me that caffeine fix. I also brewed and prepared it like “Ice Tea” and drank it in place of sodas and also drank plenty of water, all I can say is that it worked for me.
A few weeks ago while awaiting my prescriptions at the pharmacy , I started to look at the shelves containing what seemed like 200 different packages of weight loss pills. When the pharmacist called my name I asked what would be something safe for weight loss that would be O.K. with my current medications.
NOTE: I take strong meds for a few mental issues.
He said simply,” something with green tea, and natural ingredients” Not all these unprouncable never heard of “miracle ingredients”
So, I have yet to try anything yet. but i plan on starting something with green tea. I will let ya know if it does anything.
