    Hi there!

    I know green tea is zero points, but does it actually aid weight loss? Is there good nutritional value in green tea and is it worthwhile drinking instead of normal tea?

    thanks.

    Hmmm, there's a lot of hype around drinking green tea but I'm not too sure if there is any actual evidence. I think the theory is that because it contains a lot of polyphenols it increases the metabolism. Sorry I can't be of more help - but if you try it and it works let us know!

    Hi thanks for your reply!

    I am on second week of weight watchers and first weigh in tomorrow!

    It was my partner David who has now started drinking green tea as it is supposed to help boost motabolism and energy, :confused: so I have joined him and am now drinking a cup in the morning and a couple throughout the day so we shall see if I feel any better for it!

    Will keep you posted! :):)

    I think if you drink 4-6 cups a day it will help you lose weight with a healthy diet!

    I think it's true, but only if you drink a lot and it only increases your metabolism a little bit. I love green tea in Japanese restaurants but never tastes the same when I make it :( I have a Japanese teapot and loose leaves.
