Studies found that people who keep food diaries wind up eating about 15 percent less food than those who don’t. Watch out for weekends: A University of North Carolina study found people tend to consume an extra 115 calories per weekend day, primarily from alcohol and fat. Then cut out or down calories from spreads, dressings, sauces, condiments, drinks, and snacks; they could make the difference between weight gain and loss. Here are 50 easy ways to lose weight naturally.
Jonathan Valdez, registered dietitian and owner of Genki Nutrition, agrees. "The catechins in green tea promote fat loss by increasing energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and decreased lipid absorption by the intestine. Valdez believes that even though tea can be used as a fat burner, this shouldn’t promote excess caloric intake. "In the end, over-consumption will trump this process and lead to weight gain. Drinking these teas should be used as more of a complement to weight loss with current habits of decreasing calories and physical activity. Bottom line, tea shouldn’t be relied on as a source of burning calories versus cutting calories and physical activity."

I have tried several different weight loss teas recently and this one would be my favourite. I like that this set comes with four different types of teas, each type recommending the time of day that you drink it. The morning blend is pu-erh, oolong and green teas. The afternoon blend is pu-erh, oolong and white tea. The evening blend which is my favourite is chickweed, mint and raspberry. And the night tea is billberry. The morning tea gives you extra energy with green tea having caffeine in it and the evening and night time teas are more herbal so as to not keep you up at night. I have sampled them all already and they each have an herbal but subtly different taste. I enjoy the taste of all of them. The container comes with 60 individually wrapped bags. The box is marked with a clear manufacturing date of April 2015 and an expiration date of April 2020, giving you plenty of time to drink all of the tea. The product has not been evaluated by FDA however. The instructions indicate drinking the tea 15-30 minutes before meals which has been known to help reduce appetite or as needed throughout the day when your hunger cravings may be strongest. The bags are to be steeped for 5-7 minutes before drinking. It suggests you can also drink this tea over ice, which I have not yet tried but definitely will when the warmer weather comes. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone reading this review. I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased review.
It’s stunning how often we eat out of boredom, nervousness, habit, or frustration—so often, in fact, that many of us have actually forgotten what physical hunger feels like. If you’re hankering for a specific food, it’s probably a craving, not hunger. If you’d eat anything you could get your hands on, chances are you’re truly hungry. Learn how to recognize these feelings mistaken for hunger, then find ways other than eating to express love, tame stress, and relieve boredom. But talk to your doctor if you think you’re always hungry for a medical reason. Here are 10 medical reasons you might be hungry.
The pressure, the puffy stomach, the self-consciousness—this tea can help you ditch all of it. According to numerous studies, flavonoids and other compounds found in the hibiscus plant help to counteract bloating by influencing how aldosterone, the hormone that regulates water and electrolytes balance, affects the body. Enjoy a cup of hibiscus tea and watch your pooch slowly–but surely–deflate.
I have had the product for 5 days and I have noticed the difference in my cravings right away. It literally took less than a day for me to realize that I did not even think about opening my desk drawer for snacks. (Just a brief history about me: I snack 4 to 5 times a day on top of 3 meals. I eat small portions of main meals, hence I am able to stay within a healthy weight range, but the weight is slowly creeping now in my late 30s since the frequency of snacking has not changed. I am also a binge eater, and this occurs about once a month.)

Tea, specifically green tea, has been touted for its ability to boost metabolism. While tea does contain caffeine and catechins (natural antioxidants said to increase energy expenditure and burn fat), research shows mixed results regarding the use of tea for weight loss and weight maintenance. A 2009 meta-analysis published in the International Journal of Obesity linked catechins in tea to a modest—about three pounds over 12 weeks—weight loss. However, a more recent review study found drinking green tea was not associated with significant weight loss. And, since many studies used concentrations of catechins much greater than what you would get from drinking green tea, further research is needed to support claims of tea aiding in weight loss through increased metabolism. The upside? Drinking unsweetened tea does help keep you hydrated, which can assist with weight loss by preventing overeating caused by mistaking thirst for hunger.
