    I tend to drink it at work and I don't know if it works but it sure makes me wee a lot:8855::8855:

    I have the chinese tea leaves and they do take some getting used to but now, just like a normal cuppa for me.

    Ah yeah, I'm sure they must be just as good.

    I only have the leaves because it was a friend who introduced me to it and thats what she drank.

    ohhhhhhhh more tips/ideas!!

    What does green tea do then to help weight loss?? I HATE tea, so drinking it would not be an option, but could do the tablet idea if it works ;)

    Green Tea
    A native of the rainy forests of Southest Asia. Green tea and black tea come from the same plant, but green tea is less processed so more of the original plant substances survive in this herb such as polyphenols. Green tea helps to maintain and control weight when combined with a healthy diet and exercise and also helps to protect the insulin producing gland. In combination with physical activity, Green Tea also helps to reduce blood pressure thereby contributing to a healthy cardiovascular system.

    I heard that Green tea helps detox the body so i just started taking it first thing in the morning last week, the first day it really made nauseous ( i guess i have alot of toxins in my body!). But now after 1 week it's not too bad. I put a teaspoon of honey in it to make it taste better! ;)

    For the last few weeks I've been drinking normal tea in the morning (can't give it up, it's too British!) and then green tea with mint in the afternoons/evenings. I must have about 5 mugs a day.

    I don't think it has many any difference to my weightloss, however, it is a very refreshing drink and if all the health benefits are to be believed then at least I know it's doing me some good one way or another!

    I drink green tea and have moved onto green coffee as well which is really nice. I honestly dont think it does a thing for weight loss though

    I drink Dr Stuarts Slim Plus Tea, it tastes like green and has fennel in it, supposed to help supress the appetite (sure its a myth, I have been eating less but I think my tummy has just shrunk!), but hey ho, I like drinking it and it keeps me peeing lol...!
