i'm not sure whether anything has been proven but i do find that green tea makes me feel fuller than if i'd had a cup of regular tea or a cup of coffee.

i still love my green tea with mint (i just get the lipton one) & have 1 or 2 cups every day. i usually have one around this time because i've usually had my morning snack & i feel hungry again! the effect may all be psychological though!

There have been a few studies that have shown the effectiveness of green tea on weight loss. One I can recall involved rats with huge doses of the chemical responsible for green tea's effectiveness. Another was a human study, but with a limited number of participants. I'm sure I posted links to some of the studies a while ago in another thread but I can't seem to find them. I'll have another look around tonight and see what I can find. Anyway, the chemical responsible is ECGC and it has been shown to reduce appetite and has some fat burning qualities.

I think sassi hit it on the head. I drink green tea too, but in moderation. My boyfriend got us a box of gree tea when I asked him to pick one up at the grocers but he got the bitter kind. Euch! I think he didnt see any flavored brand. But next time I will try and get the better tasting ones.

I absolutely adore green tea!
My favourites are jasmine green tea, camomile green tea, Japanese green tea, and I also love green tea with roasted rice.
Does anybody know where to get the green tea capsules?

I'm lucky in that I have a Japanese supermarket near where I live so I tend to shop there. However, I've bought matcha (powdered green tea) on eBay before and it was okay. You could probably find a website that sells it if you have no luck on eBay. Just Google 'matcha' or 'genmaicha'.

Hi everyone. Some one asked is green tea realy working. Answer is YES BUT>>>
It works if you use it properly. I mean it is not enough just drinking tea. You must change your lifestyle.
I will write my simple advice. It is basic but easilly becomes healthy lifestyle and that is just why it works. Here it is:
Main thing is no skiping meals, just a little will and selfcontrol(not overeat). Here it is:
1.Breakfast - Have it soon as you get up.(it shoud be not after 8, supposing you are working)
2.Lunch - 4-5 hours after breakfast (it should be healthy, both proteins and carbon hidrates-NOT FAST FOOD)
3.You should eat some fruits(because of vitamins and minerals your body needs) It is like a sneck between lunch and diner.
4.Diner- not after 18 o'clock.(it should be mostly proteins if not just proteines(fish is great, or find some other source of proteins)
5. Do not eat enything until morning.
Drink more water than usual.
It is that simple in basic. Just be persistant and do not expact overnight weight loss. Many of my students who I told were satisfied. You will just feel healthier.

And about tea. My choice is Slimtea from Teateateas. It is based on green tea but with some ads. The point in drinking tea is just to help lose that extra wather and all unwanted things with it.
That is my wining combination. Halthy lifestyle, more water and some help from tea. Of course you can make science in lifestyle part.

The one I go to is 'Fujimart' in Elizabeth Street South Yarra. Here's the Google Map location. It's next to the Aldi Supermarket just behind the Prahran Market. They have a good selection of green teas there. I haven't looked for the one with roasted rice, but I'm sure they'd stock it. They also have a shiritaki noodles. They're low-carb noodles made from yam powder. They have only about 20 calories per serving, but have an odd smell and texture that not everyone likes.

Isn't it a bit annoying that green tea turned out to be overrated???
