    Green tea, does it help?

    Since doing SW, I cut out milk in my drinks, at first it was a struggle but iv got used to it now and can't have milk in my drinks at all! In the past 6 months, I have started drinking green tea. After experimenting with numerous different brands, iv found clipper green tea with lemon to be my favourite. They say green tea aids weightloss, have people found this to be true? I have good losses but I'm not sure if it's the tea or just how I lose? All I do know is the green tea makes me pee like mad!!

    It speeds up your metabolism so yes it may help, but it doesn't always work for everyone. But even if it doesn't help with weight loss, it gives you lovely hair and skin.

    I swear by Green Tea, I know SW don't necessarily stand by supplements or teas etc, before I went to America and fell off the wagon I lost almost 3st and always found my losses were bigger with Green Tea, even if it's just a placebo effect, it definitely worked for me.

    I didn't know it gave nice hair/skin! Iv not noticed anything anyway! Speaking of skin, I have become spottier since SW, iv googled before now and came across articles saying it's the toxins escaping from the body - I wish they'd hurry up and escape! I'd much prefer them escaping thru my backside that my face!! At least I can hide a fart!

    Yes it helps. As you note it makes you wee. Its diuretic effects help reduce water retention and anything with caffeine is good for metabolism. Plus no milk means totally fat free. What's not to love

    Always had the impression caffeine was bad for you! Never looked at it as speeding up the metabolism but then again, I suppose it does give you the energy boost doesn't it!

    Too much isn't good for you but anything that increases heart rate will boost metabolism. Green tea comes with so many antioxidant benefits and the caffeine is comparatively low that it's considered one of the best thing you can drink, maybe with the exception of pure water.

    Personally I say yes, I drank green tea by the bucketload and I swear it helped! I've had to stop it now as I'm pregnant and can't have those levels of caffeine, I miss it!
