20 Fat Busting Tips – Tip 11 – Green Tea

Green Tea is a true fat busting food…

Green tea is legendary for it’s multiple health benefits. The very good news is that weight loss is one of them. My husband has been drinking green tea for a few weeks now and his trousers are now loose and he’s looking for something to put an extra hole in his belt because he needs to be able to tighten it up.

Below is an unsolicited testimonial. I haven’t made it up or changed a word. I just don’t do that sort of thing. I hope it helps you.

“Hello there,
Very pleased with your product. My husband ordered the product while listening to talk radio. Frankly I was not a believer. The tea sat in the box for months. Our daughter was getting ready for an upcoming wedding in May. She had her 2nd baby which had turned 2 last December. She had packed on at least 20 extra pounds that she just could not get rid of. With the wedding just a few months away I gave her the tea to drink daily. Within just a few weeks you could see a noticeable weight loss. She had lost the 20 pounds without even trying . Her dress was designer made for her and we had to take in about 6 inches in the waist. After the alterations I told her not to drink any more tea until after the wedding to avoid additional alteration costs. Back on the tea… she is still loosing! So, I started drinking the tea. Yes, I started loosing weight. No fast heartbeat feeling, no jitters. Just gradual appetite changes. I don’t even crave the fried chicken, french fries or popcorn like before. I also started taking the WuYi burn tablets once per day. I have lost about 15 pounds and fit into the summer clothes I almost got rid of last year. I was a size 16 now the lower end of 14 and starting on my size 12’s
Try it … I’m a satisfied customer….. Also, Now my husband is drinking and he has been wearing suits that are in the back of the closet that he has not had on for 2-3 years. Thanks we are very satisfied!!!

Good Reasons to Have a Cuppa with your Fish Dinner

Are you concerned about getting mercury poisoning from eating fish?


I just heard about some interesting research on a positive relationship between eating fish and drinking tea. Research indicates that drinking tea (black or green), while you eat fish that may contain mercury,  may positively inhibit the absorption of mercury. Adding slices of lemon to the fish (and/or the tea) and enhances the bioavailability of the healthy benefits of tea!

Here is the abstract:
Impact of phytochemical-rich foods on bioaccessibility of mercury from fish, Food Chemistry, Volume 112, Issue 1, 1 January 2009, Pages 46-50Soon-Mi Shim, Mario G. Ferruzzi, Young-Cheul Kim, Elsa M. Janle, Charles R. Santerre
The effects of phytochemical-rich foods on bioaccessibility of mercury in fish tissue (the amount of mercury that is released from fish into gastrointestinal tract fluid following a simulated digestion) were investigated using an in vitro digestion. Total mercury in the aqueous phase following a simulated digestion of fish with added food treatments was used to measure mercury bioaccessibility. Green tea extract (31–2000 mg), black tea extract (31–2000 mg), and soy protein (50–100 mg) significantly reduced mercury bioaccessibility by 82–92%, 88–91%, and 44–87%, respectively. Grapefruit juice (0.5–10 ml) did not reduce mercury in the aqueous phase. Wheat bran (50–1000 mg) decreased mercury bioaccessibility (84%); oat bran and psyllium reduced bioaccessibility (by 59–75%, 15–31%, respectively) at amounts greater than 500 mg. We therefore suggest that co-consumption of foods containing phytochemicals at the same time as fish that contains mercury may potentially reduce mercury absorption compared to eating fish alone.

Why is Eating Fish Good For You?

Researchers at Harvard University analyzed the benefits and risks of eating fish, a potential source of mercury and dioxin contamination. They calculated that eating one to two fish meals per week, especially fish high in omega-3 fats, reduced the risk of death from heart disease by 36 percent and death from other causes by 17 percent. The researchers wrote that women of childbearing age and nursing mothers should consume two seafood meals per week, but limit their consumption of high-mercury fish, such as shark, king mackerel, swordfish, and golden bass. The higher the fish is on the ocean’s food chain the more mercury they may contain.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the omega-3s, is important in the development of fetal and infant brains. The researchers noted that consuming 250 mg daily of DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) may be sufficient for heart protection. They concluded that, “for major health outcomes among adults…the benefits of fish intake exceed the potential risks. For women of childbearing age, benefits of modest fish intake, except for a few selected species, also outweigh risks.”

Why is mercury a health concern?

Mercury is so highly toxic that it causes severe neurological disorders. It can also result in the loss of hair, teeth and nails as well as muscle weakness, loss of kidney function, emotional mood swings and memory impairment.
