Just wanted to share a recent discovery with you all, and I'm very excited to do so. It's often banded about by various 'healthy living' advocates that green tea is supposed to speed up weight loss, and just over a month ago I decided to add that into my healthy eating plan. I genuinely can't believe the results! On a good week, I'll usually lose about 2-3lbs, but I've been losing 4lbs almost every week since I started taking green tea!
Now, I don't really like hot beverages of any sort (tea or coffee), and generally avoid caffeine because it gives me migraines. But I bought a pack of decaf green tea and have been drinking it every day, and honestly I quite enjoy it now! I have a hot cup in the morning, then steep a really big cup (usually two teabags) before I go to the gym and let it cool before blending it in with my usual fruit smoothie later in the day. I also went to Boots and bought some green tea extract supplements, and I take one at work when I'm eating my lunch, along with my Omega-3 supplement (because I really struggle with cooking raw fish haha). Honestly, I feel much better for it!
If anyone else drinks green tea and has experienced similar results, I'd love to know!
