    To be honest - it's not really the green tea that helps you with weight loss (I drink tons of it for the sheer pleasure and am not looking that slim:) ) ..I think it's just one of those tales.. It's just that it keeps you hydrated. I am sure it has got health benefits but I don't think it's a miracle cure for weight loss..

    Edit: But I do think that it curbs your appetite..but hot water would do the same trick to be honest..

    It is a meant to help if you have 6-8 cups a day ive done this previously and for me it hasnt made any difference what so ever. Ive started having lemon tea as lemon is meant to help lose weight but more than anything im trying to cut milk of my diet as would rather have cheese as a hexa.

    I've recently tried drinking green tea instead of my usual coffee. I don't like the plain green tea, so I have the flavoured ones. Drank 6 cups yesterday. Have also read it's meant to help weightloss? I still have a cup of coffee a day, but i started the green tea as i think i was drinking too much coffee and i've grown to like the different flavours now. x

    Thanks all.
    Yes I think it may be one of those slimming myths that we all really want to beleive! But I have been using the loo alot so maybe it acts like a water pill and could shift water retention?
    Oh well will try this week as an experiemnet and see how WI goes next Tuesday :)

    green tea actually burns fat, it also kicks your metabolism and reduces water

    I drank 4 cups yesterday and i couldn't stop peeing (the water coming out)

    There are 5 foods (I think its 5) which burn fat

    Grapefruit
    Cinnomen
    Chilli
    Green tea
    and coconut oil

    These are all proven to burn fat due to things in them

    heres the why

    Green tea Green tea speeds up the rate your body burns cellular energy by up to 40 per cent, according to research reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
    The plant also increases the rate of fat burning. Researchers have found this effect is caused by the combination of caffeine and flavonoids found in the tea, whether it is drunk hot or cold.
    TIP: Drink two to three cups a day to keep your metabolism in top gear.

    plus its a diuretic so ideal around monthlys to stop water retention
