Green Tea & Weight Loss

Green Tea &  Weight Loss
By: http://www.skybluecross.com/

Although no one would characterize me as overweight at first glance, I could still stand to lose 5 to 10 pounds. That doesn't seem like much of a challenge, but I've found that sometimes the fewer pounds I want to shed, the harder it is. I know that's counterintuitive, but that has been my personal experience. For me, it has always been easier to go from 150 to 149 than from 120 to 119. Fortunately, I think I've finally discovered something that can help me achieve my goal of slimming down: a green tea weight loss program.

Green tea weight loss programs have been around forever, as this beverage has long been known for its positive effects on the body's metabolism rate. But I had never tried any green tea weight loss diets before because I'm not all that fond of the drink. It's definitely an acquired taste as far as I'm concerned, and even after drinking the stuff for about a month and a half, I still cannot sip it leisurely or linger over the cup for an extended period. Instead, I have to chug it down and then chase it with a bit of water just to rinse the taste out of my mouth. I know that seems pretty childish, but that's what I have to do! At least I'm still getting all the benefits of the beverage!

So how does a green tea weight loss program work? Well, most of the time these programs are meant to be followed in conjunction with ordinary dieting activities such as exercise and reduced caloric intake. You will not lose significant pounds simply from drinking special teas -- unless you completely eschew solid food while on the program, which is definitely NOT recommended. So despite what some green tea weight loss programs claim, it's not a miracle product, but it can help you burn up an extra hundred calories or more per day depending on how many cups you drink. While that doesn't seem like a lot on the surface, those calories certainly do add up in the long run.

As I said, I've been on a green tea weight loss program for about six weeks now. (Bear in mind that this is in addition to an exercise regimen that I already had in place.) Without changing anything else about my eating habits, I have already lost three pounds, which for me is amazing news considering how long I'd been stuck on that dieting plateau. A couple more months of doing this should have me weighing in right near my target.

If you're looking for a miracle product that can magically reduce your waistline by several inches and slim you down practically overnight, I'm telling you right now it doesn't exist. If it did, we would all know about it and there wouldn't be any more debates about what works and what doesn't. Nevertheless, a green tea weight loss program can help you slim down slowly, steadily, and naturally if you're willing to give it a chance. Try adding five cups to your daily routine to see if it helps!
