I'll Try Anything Once

We went to pick out Leo's tux tonight and I got into a conversation with the lady who was measuring him. Leo was shocked at how much his measurements had decreased and I told her I wanted side by side liposuction tables to take the fat out of me and put it into him.

She told me, you don't need that, just drink green tea. Turns out this 52 year old woman has lost 179 lbs in the past year by eliminating coffee from her diet and substituting green tea. She had no hanging skin, looked healthy and, quite frankly, I found it hard to believe.

Then she told me that the owner's son started taking green tea pills and had lost 20 lbs. in the last month - the owner verified this story.

So guess where we stopped on the way home? I've already taken two pills.

I know there is no magic secret to weight loss but what can it hurt?

Sounds like a plan to me. Even if you don't lose weight, the antioxidants in the green tea are good disease fighting agents. Sounds like a win/win to me.

I'd read the same thing - I actually do drink green tea - I like it but only about 2 cups a day. I think the quantity that you have to drink for weight loss is pretty high and I'm not good with taking pills - I can't even seem to keep up with my Calcium and that's disguised as a caramel candy!

By the way...if you find out about anything that will take away the bat wings most people call "arms", let me know!

Can't hurt, could help. Green tea has all sorts of antioxidents. I have started taking something called Mega-T, which is green tea (and other herbals) in a pill form. It really does help my appetite and give me a little more energy. Just a little, but I notice it.
