  • check the ingredients and make sure it doesn't contain aspartame or any other fake sweeteners. imo, if you drink it unsweetened, that's the best. i don't know if it will help you lose weight but its certainly good for you

  • The bottle type has too much stuff in it to do the body much good. I would use green tea bags and make either hot or cold tea at home and take it to work, or out and about town.

  • Regular green tea is calorie free, and loaded with anti-oxidants (and caffiene). When you go on a diet, or use a diet aid, you are just putting yourself on the gain/loss rollercoaster; frustrating for you, & hard on your body. You will never learn portion controlor healthy eating habits. In order to maintain a healthy weight, you need to have a healthy lifestyle; this has the added bonus of setting a great example for your kids.
    First, start walking; at least 20 min a day at least 3 times a week. Next, drink your water! at least 8 8oz glasses a day. Next, eat your fruits & veggies! 7-8 servings a day, in at least three different colors. Eat your whole grains (loaded with fiber, protein, and lots of energy-giving nutrients), 7 servings a day. Cut way back on (or eliminate) meat & dairy. Add beans, lentils & tofu to your diet. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
