Does Green Tea really help you lose weight?
Does anyone know? I've always wondered and heard that it does so i've been drinking a cup a night.

That is really funny that you should mention - I was just on my way to have one. I have read a lot that says green tea (3 cups / day) helps your metabolism to speed up helping you to lose weight. The only problem is I get acidic like burn down my throat from it (nothing bad just uncomfortable)
Monday, June 18, 2007, 3:41 PM
really? that doesn't happen to me but i've always wondered how exactly it speeds up your metabolism..?
Monday, June 18, 2007, 3:44 PM
I think it helps you lose weight because if you drink green tea the odds of you not drinking coffee (with milk and sugar) are a lot higher.
Monday, June 18, 2007, 3:50 PM
My thought is:
1. Don't expect it to be a magic cure.
2. Don't expect it to replace other sensible measures like exercise and a good diet
3. It couldn't hurt to try it...!

I just recently posted this to another thread, but then saw this one...take a look!

Does Green Tea really help you lose weight ?
I started drinking Green Tea 2 - 3 months ago, initially purely for the antioxidant qualities it is supposed to possess. I am not fat, and was not really overweight by more than a couple of lbs anyway. However I was quite amazed to find that I lost a couple of kilos without even dieting !?! Currently I have now lost about 3.5 kilos, and my weight appears to be still getting lower. The only thing I have done differently is drink Green Tea. 1 Tea Bag for half a pot of Tea 3 times a day, 2 mugs for breakfast, 2 for lunch and 2 for dinner. My appetite seems better also, as I do like sweets and chocolate, biscuits and cake, which I try to eat in moderation. I certainly do feel better for it. Has anyone else had the same effects which can be attributed to Green Tea ?

supplements insead of tea?
I don't like the taste of green tea but I have read so much good stuff about green tea being good for you. It is supposed to rev up your metabolism, give you energy and also the antioxidants are great for you. That's why, even though people in Japan smoke a lot, they have less lung cancer than America... because they have antioxidants in their diets like green tea.
Anyway, I take green tea supplements and GNC told me that they are the same as drinking it but is that really true?
Saturday, June 23, 2007, 12:09 PM
I take the supplements and drink the tea
I take green tea supplements and drink green tea. Whenever I do, my metabolism speeds right up and if I eat something, I have to go to the bathroom right after because the green tea helps your body not hold onto excess fats from the food. I love green tea supplements as well as the tea. It gives me so much energy as well !

does green tea help you lose weight?
in my experience yes, primarily because if you drink decaf green tea, you are not drinking coffee or anything else. makes me calm as well which I like.

Well, I love it, and it doesnt stain your teeth as badly as black tea or coffee and no carbonation as in diet coke.
what are the actual benefits in comparison to black tea? Black tea also boasts antioxidants..
Thursday, October 25, 2007, 4:18 PM
i have lost 16 pounds in 2 months from drinking green tea... i started drinking it because it tasted good.. that too the arizona green tea with honey... i dont exercise and my diet is the same.. i replaced regular tea with green tea thats all.

Green tea has a catechin - one of four major catechins- called Epigallocatechin gallate. EGCG as its called, cause the body to burn fat for fuel. In my experience, drinking the tea is much more effective than the pills. I think it may be because 1. the water is more filling and 2. possibly the EGCG is more bio-available.
As for the teeth, green tea is a good source of flouride. So not only does it not stain teeth, it strengthens them. Drink the tea and you'll notice. The pills can be hard on the nervous system if you take too many. Be Well!

I recently switched from coffee to green tea, and the green tea has made me feel better. I stay full from my meals longer and I don't get quite the caffiene crash as I did with coffee.
I don't think it's helped me lose any more weight per say, but it makes me feel good, and isn't that what's most important anywho? :)

The Green Tea Fiasco
Green Tea does help you lose weight since it contains vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients that help you feel fuller. However: all tea is a mild diuretic, and drinking too much of it can send your body into shock, and extreme amounts can send your body into a coma. The best thing to do is to drink anywhere from 1-5 cups a day. 6-7 will send you into shock, and 10+ will send you into a coma.

So does green tea contain caffeine? I am intolerant to caffeine but i want to start drinking green tea. Anyone knows? Thx
Monday, November 17, 2008, 7:13 AM
green tea does have caffeine in it but it does have a decaffeinaed version. look on the label.
Monday, November 17, 2008, 9:13 AM
I drink about 3 cups of hot and unsweetened green tea a day. I'm not sure if it's helped me lose weight, but I have noticed a difference in my waistline. I drink this in conjunction with eating a balanced, low calorie diet and hitting the gym 3-4 times a week. I work in an office and when it gets slow I tend to get bored and find something to snack on. Since I started drinking green tea, I just get up and fill up my tea cup instead of eating things I shouldn't. It's also cold in my office, so the tea keeps me warm :)
Monday, November 17, 2008, 9:29 AM
I love green tea- it does work. The caffeine speeds your metabolism and activates the polyphenols. The ECGC makes your body want to burn fat and is like an astringent cleanser to your body. I actually lost 70 lbs with green tea, but I ate a lot less, its an appetite supressant because you start burning fat. However, I went back to black tea with sugar and milk and gained it all back plus some. I'm on the downward spiral again thanks to PT and green tea.
Monday, November 17, 2008, 6:40 PM
Does green tea have caffeine in it? If i take the decaf one will i still get the same weight loss effects and healthy benefits?
Monday, November 17, 2008, 7:12 PM
I've been drinking a lot of green tea not to lose weight but I've lost about 4 pounds. I've also found that it kills my appetite.
Sunday, August 16, 2009, 9:58 AM
It works because it is hot water, which helps you to burn calories. And it has antioxidants. That's all.
This is coming from an Asian.

Many of us are interested in losing weight. Weight loss products are huge sellers - even when they make ridiculous claims. But there is evidence to suggest that some substances can help speed up our metabolism. And, we all know that a faster metabolism means more calories burned in a day - and that can easily translate into weight loss.
One substance that does seem to have promise in the battle of the bulge is green tea. First of all, green has caffeine, which does speed the metabolism somewhat. And, what's special about tea is that, for some reason, the caffeine in tea doesn't appear to raise the heart rate or blood pressure rate the way other forms of caffeine do.
This makes tea an effective way to speed up the metabolism without worry for those who are caffeine sensitive.
Green tea also seems to be helpful for weight loss because of its potent anti-oxidants. Tea's polyphenols have been shown to have many health benefits because they combat free radicals in the body that can cause cell damage.

To get the maximum benefit from green tea it's better to brew the tea from tea leaves as opposed to tea bags. I have a bodum strainer I put right in the mug. It's as convenient as using a tea bag. I drink jasmine tea because I love the taste.

I don't know the only way to lose weight is to give up the junk food!
Tuesday, August 18, 2009, 10:29 AM
The answer is yes, especially when combined with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. There was one study we recently read that said if you drink green tea and eat a grapefruit, the odds of certain cancers plummeted.
The other thing about green tea is that it is not a sugar and fat delivery mechanism. Only a small percentage of people drink coffee with no sugar or creamer.
Green tea is much easier to drink alone. This article gives you a couple great ideas to make green tea taste great:

Does green tea have be hot in order to work?
Thursday, March 29, 2012, 7:47 PM
Green tea helps metabolism and has antioxidants that are really healthy for you. so not only does it taste good,but you speed up the fat burning process while enjoying a nice cup of tea. i usually drink approximently 4-5 cups a day and it really makes a differance! i have been doing the same with lemon juice too. It only has a minor effect. Green tea is honestly the best way to lose weight if you dont want to diet, it just gives you a little boost. i'm sorry my spelling was really bad. i'm only 11. no judjing on my spelling please!!!
Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 10:22 PM
jasmine tea is good and all, but not as effective as green tea. Green tea speeds up your metabolism much more and has a lot of anioxodents that are very healthy. if youre looking to lose weight, i sugjest green tea. if not, just keep on drinking jasmine tea. overall tea is good for you no matter what kind. i'm very sorry about my spelling!!! i'm 11. please give me a break. jasmine tea is one of my favorite teas! i havent studied much about jasmine tea yet. but i will keep trying to look for weight lost foods.
Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 10:32 PM
for me, green tea is one of the most sucsesful weight lost foods i have ever tried. i have started to drink approximenty 4-5 cups each day and have already noticed a differance. not a huge change, but still. If you're not into dieting i sugjest green tea would be the most effective fat burning food. green tea boosts your metabolisim and has a lot of anioxodents that are very healthy for you so not only are you enjoing a nice cup of tea, but you are also speeding up the fat burning process. i'm very sorry about my awful spelling!!! i'm only 11. give me a break.
Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 10:40 PM
i have lost 12 pounds in 1 and half months from drinking green tea... in the beginning the taste was not good; after that i started it with honey and continued till one and half month. I don't exercise and my diet is the same.. i replaced regular tea with green tea thats all.
Tuesday, May 08, 2012, 12:17 AM
Modifying your own look at foods is usually a fantastic technique to start to slim down. Tiny substitutions make it easier to keep your sense of full satisfaction after you actually eat, though reducing the fat as well as calories amounts of the portions. The very first couple of weeks of one's weight reduction process, basically function on these tiny alterations. Start off with a single example and after that include a 2nd for the 7 days. You might start to actually eat a wholesome the morning meal every single day. The breakfast actually is an essential dish and might enable you to really feel satisfied for extended time periods through the day. Data have revealed that individuals who take in the morning meal are usually significantly less certain to become chubby. And so, consume your morning meal every single day plus try out to get a reduced dish while dining. As soon as one has be cozy with such adjustments, it's time for you to add more exercising within the blend.

Green teas DOES help you lose weight
I can't say enough about Green tea for weight Loss!! My daughter is 13 years old and currently weighs 195pds. I have tried everything from the Atkins diet to watching calories and nothing worked. I even had her tested for Thyroid problems and medical conditions. Finally I started her on Green tea and she is Finally losing some weight. I don't usually promote products, but this is the link to what I purchased. Good Luck and DRINK green tea
Green tea is not a magic bullet!! Moderate exercise and a good diet is essential to maximize benefits, but as I've stated it does work. Green tea pills or tea that is not fresh or high in the essential properties is a waste of your time and money.
Thursday, August 30, 2012, 3:57 PM
please is it a certain kind or brand you were using i would like to know
Saturday, September 01, 2012, 8:48 PM
Green Tea vs. Coffee.
I adore coffee that I use my Cheats for it (and a modest splash of half and half. Having said that, I'm turning down the coffee a little bit and using green tea. I like the peach flavored Green tea.
There are health benefits for coffee, too. I never drink sugary coffee drinks and I've trained myself to like a "lighter" cup of coffee (less ground beans and more water so it feels like a lot.
Sunday, January 06, 2013, 8:11 PM
Good idea, but should it be Global Levelling?
Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 12:37 AM
Green tea is so effective for health and fitness. There are so many benefits of green tea. It improves heart functions and reduces chances of disease. Green tea lowers body fats and increases body metabolisms.
Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 2:11 AM
Yes, Green tea is an ideal nutritional drink which help a lot to control the cholesterol level, burn fat, and control the body weight.
It is mostly recommended for the person who are over weighted and want to lose their weight.
Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 12:52 PM
One opposing view - Green tea doesn't do much
OK, I'm know I'm going to get beat up for this, but I really have my doubts about green tea being such miraculous benefit. Is there a small benefit? Maybe? But when you weigh it against eating a healthy diet and exercising, I think its like comparing a pebble to a boulder. I suppose the caffeine in it may give a small temporary boost to the metabolism, but so does coffee and both are low in calories (as long as you don't add anything to them). Other than that, what can you ascribe to the tea that would cause wt loss? The other reason it might cause wt loss would be if you were replacing syrupy soda w/ tea which would simply be a calorie reduction, not an effect from tea.
And the antioxidant properties. Exactly what does green tea contain that you can't get from various fruits? I keep hearing it has antioxidants, but I hear that about many fruits as well.
Now if you find drinking green tea makes you feel good, it is certainly better than drinking soda. On the other hand, I don't believe it has any significant calorie burning properties, other than as a way of replacing soda. If you plan to site a study, I'll say that I can find a study to prove and disprove almost anything. Most "studies" have a flawed sample population that keeps the study from proving anything relative to the general population.
So drink it for pleasure, but I really doubt is has any signifcant benefits. OK, I love opposing viewpoints and I never take offense, so feel free to give it to me with both barrels.
Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 9:25 PM
I drink a cup in the morning and one in the afternoon and it helps curve snacking on sweets. That may be why it helps with weight loss....
Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 3:43 PM
It really helps to lose weight, as it enhances metabolism and burns fat. I drink 2 cups of green tea everyday for breakfast and before going to sleep, and I also drink aloe vera juice as it's also supposed to work for weight loss (see the
). So Ive lost 7 pounds, its not much of course but I still think thats a good result.
Monday, April 29, 2013, 9:43 AM
Green tea contains several things people have noted on here, t
EGCG alone has been proven by tests over many years now that it causes you burn about 4% more energy a day, which is not accountable by the caffeine at all, which in studies shown did nothing at with the amount found in the tea. So conclusion, extremely healthy for you, will not cause a healthy person to go into a coma or over half the Asian population would be dead, and the remaining would be running like hell from the tea... the other natural chemicals in it are also proven to enhance health in so many ways that are too much for me to write here.. look it up. And the comment above saying it's because it's hot? It's been demonstrated that really chilled liquid causes your body to heat up internally to compensate for the temperature variance... which causes you to burn a little more calories, however has nothing to do with the 4% effect that was proven by EGCG from green tea as they used extracts. You'd need to brew your own green tea for real benefits and results.. I'd recommend at least 6 to 8 cups per day to see results from my studies.

Green tea is a healthy drink and rich in Flavonoid antioxidants. It helps in Weight loss, Type 2 diabetes prevention, prostate cancer prevention, breast cancer prevention, lung cancer prevention, or gingivitis.

There's always been a strange cognitive dissonance about ads on uniforms. Professional sports leagues have operated for decades under the creative fiction that advertising on uniforms is some sort of infringement on aesthetic purity
, a sentiment that's as laughable as the idea that college athletes don't deserve a share of the billions they generate. The truth, of course, is that every uniform already allows advertising in the form of the manufacturer's logo
Up to 50 off low price jerseys
. (You could argue that the uniforms themselves are advertisements for the NFL Shop, and vice versa, but that's going down a symbologic rabbit hole we can leave closed for now.)
Consider a few facts: most major sports already allow advertising on their uniforms. Soccer teams around the world, including the United States
Arizona Cardinals Jersey
, proudly sport the logos of their chief sponsors. NASCAR teams and drivers are so associated with their sponsors that fans often refuse to buy competitors' brands
Carolina Panthers Jersey
. Golfers have sport the logos of high-end companies on their shirts and bags as well as their visors. Most notably for the purposes of this discussion, most teams already allow ads on practice jerseys, as you can see from these photos from the last couple days:
Plus, NFL Europe (RIP) allowed ads on uniforms
Denver Broncos Jersey
, like you can see here with Kurt Warner:
Or here in a scrum:
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver estimated that ads on NBA uniforms could bring in $100 million a year. That's money that other
New England Patriots Jersey
leagues are simply leaving on the table. Consider the fact that NFL uniforms have far more space available for ads--you could show IMAX movies on some guys' shoulder pads--and the fact that regular-season
Seattle Seahawks Jersey
games outdraw the NBA Finals ratings-wise, and you're looking at far too much cash for the NFL to turn away too much longer.
It comes down to a simple proposition
Green Bay Packers Jersey
: are you really going to stop watching the NFL because 's sporting a Dunkin' Donuts patch on one shoulder? Of course not.
One key, of course, is matching the right sponsor with the right team. The NFL will have its say in advertiser selection
Kansas City Chiefs Jersey
, to avoid some Texas offramp strip club sponsoring the Cowboys or some Bay-area pawn shop hooking up with the Raiders. You'll be looking at multi-year agreements; this won't be like NASCAR, where advertisers can switch from week to week and certain unfortunate cars might run without ads at all
Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey
. Dozens of companies are willing to spend millions for 30 seconds of Super Bowl ad time; you think there won't be a line out the door to buy three hours' worth?
So, yes, ads are coming to
Wholesale Jerseys 2016
uniforms. Maybe not next year, but soon, and for the rest of our viewing lives. At least we can take heart in the fact that we won't be watching, say, the Citibank Giants play the Coca-Cola Falcons. Yet.
