Green Tea - it's a miracle!!

I'm very sceptical about all things that claim to help people lose weight - (apart from hard graft dieting and exercise of course!!) However, over the past 2 weeks I've not been eating particularly well but I've lost 2 lbs (and it's totm!) and the only thing I can think of is that about 3 weeks ago I started drinking green tea everyday. I've had about 4 cups a day - mainly the tetley decaf variety (but I did a lot of research and the tetley decaf version still has majority of the important ingredients retained) and the claim that it helps weightloss by increasing the metabolism, I now believe to be absolutely true! Why not give it a go - you've nothing to lose, it's extremely good for you, as it's full of antioxidants and certainly appears to be helping me shift a few pounds!:)

As far as I can see it should be okay on all diets - especially the caffeine free version - it should just add to your water intake - I find it easier to drink than cold water!

I buy it from Asda's or Waitrose, but I'm sure all supermarkets would have it - it's in a cylinder tin - 25 bags per tin. As per my research it's the process used for decaffeinating that is important (there are 2 methods) and this deterimes how much of the 'good ingredients' get retained. Can't remember now exactly what I read but Tetley's retains over 90% of the 'good' ingredients!

green tea is great but I find if I have it on an empty stomach it makes me feel a bit sick. It does work especially if u have eaten something fatty or stodgy , 2 cups later and u feel less bloated

I have just started drinking green tea since reading this thread, but can too much green tea still be good for you as i am now drinking roughly 5 -9 mugs a day, is that ok?

I found Luxury Kenyan Loose Leaf green tea on ebay. I put it in the perculator cos I haven't a teapot and brew it on the stove, it's really lovely. Best I have ever tasted.

I'd heard about green tea too but this thread convinced me that it's worth trying - i just wished i liked the taste a bit more:sigh:
Still, i find it's ok if i drink it when it's still really hot because then it doesn't taste of too much - you're all so lucky people who like the stuff! ;)
