If you’re like quite a few other people, many of whom have written to me, wanting to know where to buy weight loss tea in their local area you’ll love this!
I’ve found a new way for you to get the wonderful health benefits of green tea… There’s a one-off payment of (currently) US$49.97 – so you don’t have to worry about recurring payments and no delivery charges.
The dieting world is full of myths, hearsay and soundbites.
We all have heard them a thousand times, but does that make them true? Is it really a good idea to ban sugar completely from your diet? Or how about not touching fat and alcohol ever again? These drastic steps seems to me like an invitation to failure. Very few people can swear off certain foods forever and stick to the promise. It’s just inviting failure and the feelings which go along with it.
We all need a little treat now and then. And there’s nothing wrong with getting a treat once in while, provided that treats don’t happen every day.
The basic idea of any diet is to eat food that contains fewer calories than your body needs to maintain its current weight. This way, the body is forced to use the accumulated fat in order to make up for the energy it doesn’t get from food. But a diet also has to be tasty and nutritionally sound. Simply banning certain types of foods and ingredients is not a solution because anybody following such a diet will have to acknowledge sooner or later that he or she wants those foods and ingredients badly and a relapse into the old eating habits becomes inevitable.
People should also learn not to put their faith into meal replacements, such as Mypoplex, Slimfast or Eat-Smart. These combinations of low-fat and high-protein substances cannot substitute a proper diet. They should never be used for more than 4 four weeks in a row. Calories are important to the body and nobody can go on for long without them. Cutting calories out of the long-term nutrition is a huge mistake because the internal organs and muscles need them to function. Using meal replacements for a week or two, as a shock treatment, is fine. Relying on them for two months is asking for trouble. And the same goes for single-food diets, such as the cabbage soup diet, because they are based on the same idea.
Another widespread myth is the idea that the best approach to weight loss is a low-carb, high-protein diet. This is one of the myths that emerged from the Hollywood slimming industry. Nearly all movie stars and singers are on some such diet. However, this approach is not exactly good for you because a diet low in carbohydrates and calories forces the body to use existing carbs located in the liver and the muscles. In time, this diet leads to weight loss mainly from water stored in the body, instead of fat, and also strains the internal organs.
And people should not be so afraid of potatoes, bread and pasta, the leading sources of carbohydrates. Carbs are actually good for you because they quell the feeling of hunger without bringing in too many calories. So you can safely eat moderate amounts of potatoes and bread as long as you don’t use butter or sauces, which are laden with fat. Naturally, you also have to pay attention to how these foods are prepared. French fries are not a low-fat food. Still, a high-carb, low-fat diet is far better than banning potatoes and bread from your daily meals and it’s also easier to stick to.
Drinking a certain quantity of water every day is a good idea because it keeps the body hydrated and fills the stomach. Water also keeps the intestines healthy by facilitating the movements of undigested food to the exit point. However, simply drinking water does not trigger weight loss. There is only one way to lose weight and that is to burn up the existing fat and water cannot do that. Nor should a diet be judged solely by how much weight is lost per week. Some people claim that a diet can be considered effective if the weekly loss of weight is above two pounds. Frankly, two pounds per week is a lot of weight to lose and you can be sure that not all of it is fat, but also the lean tissue that makes up the muscles.
Another myth claims that fat is absolutely bad for you. It’s not. Quite on the contrary, the body needs some fat in order to get the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K circulating through the cardiovascular system. Moreover, fat also brings into the body the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 that cannot be synthesized in the body. The word “essential” means that these fatty acids simply have to be present in your daily food since they play an important role in your health. The recommended dose of fat is 35 percent of your daily calories.
And last of all comes the idea that a diet or eating plan is enough in itself and does not have to be coupled with exercising. But exercising is the most effective way of burning up the extra calories stored as fat. Simply sitting at your desk all day long is not going to do the trick, regardless of what diet you’re on. Remember that a diet that has plenty of food (the right kind of food) and plenty of exercise is far better than sitting on the sofa and drinking cabbage soup every six hours. It works faster and is less stressful to your body.
Of course, we need a bit of a kick-start to go along with sensible eating that’s where supplements containing natural superfoods come into the picture or even capsules containing a 100% natural, 100% organic fat binder made from the nutritious cactus “Opuntia ficus-indica” which bind with the excess fat you consume to help you manage you weight and improve your overall health.

I just had to share this article with you. It’s important to know these studies have been done.

“A cup of green tea a day could help keep your heart healthy, a study shows. The drink was found to widen the artery, which runs from the shoulder to the elbow by 4 per cent within 30 minutes – reducing the risk of blood clots. This is a good indicator of improved blood flow around the body, says a report in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation.
Dr Nikolaos Alexopoulos and colleagues at the 1st Cardiology Department, Athens Medical School, used ultrasound scanning to measure the performance of the brachial artery – which runs from the shoulder to the elbow, and is a good indicator of blood flow around the body. A team of healthy volunteers were given green tea, caffeine or hot water to drink on three separate occasions. Measurements of the brachial artery were taken at three stages after they drank their beverage.
The researchers found the artery expanded by four per cent 30 minutes after volunteers drank green tea. Caffeine or hot water had no effect. Dilation of the artery shows better functioning of the endothelium, the layer of cells lining blood arteries that stops clots forming. Previous research suggests black tea improves short and long-term endothelial performance, but this is the first time green tea has been shown to have a short-term beneficial effect on the large arteries.
Green tea is traditionally consumed in China and Japan and differs from black tea in that it is not fermented before drying. This fermentation process appears to reduce the content of flavonoids – beneficial antioxidants – by up to 90 per cent, which is why green tea is believed to offer different health benefits to black tea.
Recent studies have also shown potent anticarcinogenic effects of green tea, attributed to its antioxidant properties. Other research shows drinking green tea lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduces harmful liver enzymes. Evidence is now suggesting that drinking around 3 to 4 cups of tea a day may help reduce the risk of developing heart disease.”
In conculsion, including green tea in your diet just makes sense. I have written about the “other health benefits” of Wu Yi Tea before, as you may be aware Wu Yi Tea has been shown to be more effective than other green teas. Get more information on Wu Yi Tea
