Should You Be Drinking Green Tea?


Woman Pouring Cup of Green Tea

Green tea has become popular with women who are trying to lose weight. It is popular with people who are trying to lose weight because of its unique flavor. It does not need an excessive amount of sweetener to taste good and offers few natural calories. Although tea in its many forms, has been around for centuries, green tea contains antioxidants in addition to caffeine and other components that can help with weight loss. The caffeine found in green tea acts as a diuretic and helps to flush excess water and contaminants.

How you sweeten your green tea makes a big difference in how healthy it is. To retain the maximum amount of benefits, avoid using cane or table sugar to sweeten your tea. Instead of regular sugar, you have numerous options including honey, Stevia, and even certain types of fruit juice. Fruit juices offer a sweetness, plus the flavor and the nutrients of the desired fruit. When you are trying to lose weight, you need to replenish the fluids you lose through exercise with water or other liquids that will not counteract your efforts.

Green tea extract will also work if you do not want to drink the actual tea. A small amount of green tea extract in an eight ounce glass water will provide you the same benefits as a full bottle of the tea. The extract can also be added to fruit juices if you don't feel like drinking water all of the time. The flushing effects of green tea will rid the body of toxins and the byproducts that are produced through exercise. When you are exercising, choosing the right fluids is important if you want to remain hydrated.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
