Losing weight or should I say maintaining weight is somewhat a thing of the past. I fondly remember how my passion for eating never gave me an issue of a bulging belly or flabby arms, even if my only exercise was lifting the TV remote control to change channel. Thanks to fast metabolism when I was much younger. Needless to say, I’ve grown a few years and gained a few extra pounds.
I recall reading articles about green tea and the many health benefits that it offers but I am more inclined in reaping off the benefits of losing weight. Aside from being 200 times more powerful than vitamin E at destroying skin-damaging free radicals which reacts with healthy cells in the body causing damage, it’s said to contain an active ingredient known as epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG for short.
It targets belly fat. It was said that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent!
Since I struggle maintaining my weight lately, I’m giving it a try. I have been drinking green tea for a couple of days now and I can’t wait to affirm that it is indeed effective.
In fact, an office friend noticed that I’ve lost some weight… And I like the sound of it! Guess I’ll continue to enjoy my cuppa tea until I see that promising result.
