Yeah totally full of sugar. I've just given up all processed and refined sugars for 40 days (so far on day 24) and it's amazing to see how much sugar is in everything... takes so many items off the shopping list!

But the best way to check this out is from the Ingredients list. The ingredients are listed in the order of the largest quantity (so if sugar is in the first 4-5 we know were in trouble).

Sugar can have many names: Sugar, Glucose, Fructose, Corn Syrup, Dextrose, Honey, Sucrose etc... so you can easily be tricked by the way they word it all. Have a look at the ingredients list to make a better choice between your items.

I've so far lost 4kgs since giving up sugar for 24 days - it's been fantastic. I'm a huge green tea fan -but I have to go for the plain old hot green tea at the moment ;)

Feel free to keep in touch and ask me questions anytime :D

I vote with full of sugar, although it's probably more reliable to check the label on the particular bottle you're tempted to buy.

There is no reason why you can't enjoy this as part of your everyday life.

As with everything the 'poison is in the dose'.

Green tea is good for many reason but if you are taking it with the goal to lose might be disappointed. think of it as good but not magic
Just do what you should do!

I love drinking green tea. But i prefer to do my own drink from dried green tea leaves that i buy from organic stores, i boil it and i use natural sweeteners not sugar.

Green Tea will do nothing for you if you don't fix your diet. End of story.

I think so, but you can find a sugar-free green tea in the market. There are natural and organic sugar free green tea available in the markets. You can also make your own iced-green tea by infusing your natural or organic green tea to water then put some ice then you have your own iced green tea.:)
