Why is the green tea diet the new sensation in weight loss? The primary reason is that it works. It’s simple and easy, and you can create your own custom-made dieting program tailored to your own needs.
Your taste for junk food will drop away with this diet, that’s one of the biggest benefits.
There are only three parts to this simple diet. Here they are.
1. Drink Green Tea Before Each Main Meal
The only requirement to this diet is that you drink green tea half an hour before each meal.
If you don’t already have green tea in your pantry, go and buy some today. You’ll probably have to try several different varieties before you find a brand which you really enjoy.
The primary function of the green tea is to act an appetite suppressant. It has many other health benefits; it’s even been suggested as an anti-cancer agent.
If you don’t usually eat breakfast, drink a cup of green tea when you get up in the morning, and take your breakfast with you to work. (You can take a tub of yogurt or a small sandwich.) When you get to work, have another cup of green tea and eat your breakfast. The food will kick start your metabolism for the day, so that you burn your fat stores.
A tip: if you have insomnia, drink decaffeinated green tea after 3PM.
2. Eat Healthy Foods: Drop the Junk
One of the big benefits of being on this diet is that your tastes in food will change. This may be because green tea affects your metabolism, but whatever the reason, you’ll find it easier to eat healthy foods, and you’ll you lose your taste for sugary, fatty, fast foods.
Create a meal plan for yourself, with a shopping list. When you have plenty of healthy food in the house, you won’t be tempted by junk food.
3. Get an Exercise Habit
Yes, you need to exercise. Choose an exercise which is fun. There are many different forms of exercise; you’re sure to find some which appeal to you. If you don’t have the money to go to a gym, look for a DVD or CD exercise program which you can use at home.
A fitness ball and some simple weights are great investments — they can form the basis of your own home gym.
How much weight can you lose with the green tea diet? That depends on how much weight you have to lose: some dieters have reported losing 10 pounds in the first two weeks.
