    Green tea

    Does anyone drink much of this whilst dieting?

    I had never tried it before July and now during a long day at home doing assignments I could easily polish off 10 cups. Read so many health benefits for it, whether it actually helps towards weight loss is debatable though.

    One thing I have realised with it is that it seems to kill my temptation to snack. Was never a big tea drinker before this but now I couldn't imagine a day not drinking it

    I've been drinking green tea for almost 3 years now. Can't really comment on whether or not it's helpful in losing weight. I might be bigger today if I didn't drink it, but then again I might not....lol
    I usually have around 6 to 8 cups a day, although a nurse that once worked where I work, said you shouldn't drink too much as it strips the body of the vitamins and minerals that it needs.

    Re: Green tea

    I've not heard of the pineapple one. Must keep an eye out for that. My favourite is green tea with lemon

    I love green tea! (and peppermint tea, and lemon tea and...just tea) though I end up in the loo every 5 minutes.

    Exactly! Using that theory, I should start using the public toilet that's a 20 min walk away, the more tea I drink, the more I need the loo, the quicker I will run, the more weight I'll lose!

    I started drinking green tea while dieting as I heard about how it can aid weight loss - duno if there's much truth in this - and I wanted to kind of detox while I dieted. I recently heard it can lead to tachycardia though and my heart rate is actually pretty high so i'm not sure if it's the green tea that may have caused it. I don't drink a lot of it maybe 2-3 cups a day tops. I still want to drink it because it's a natural antioxidant but I won't be drinking more than 2 cups per day anymore

    I bought some but I didnt like it - although I love normal tea with milk and sweetner I've been told that if I keep drinking it I will start liking it but not sure if I can handle drinking enough for that to happen

    I had to train myself to like green tea, I prefer the one with lemon. I tend to have no more than 4 cups a day, and I find my skin is healthier when I do drink it. Aren't sure about weight loss though x
