hows it going starting to take green tea before my workouts going to get the capsules soon, don't really like drinking it.

but i wanted to ask you guys how has green tea helped you guys in your cutting stage.
 
Does gree tea help in cutting? All I ever heard about it was that it supposedly has a great antioxidant profile. For myself, coffee >> black tea > green tea.

Mmmm coffee.
 
yeah i heard it does help you cut weight. dont remember the specifics though
 
I've tried both the capsule and the tea, It makes me nauseous, cant figure out why? Anybody else experience that?
 
i drink alot of green tea but mostly cause i like it, and with lot's of sugar and milk

I read that, and the only claim in there regarding direct benefit of green tea for cutting weight is via the caffine content.

(Caffine stimulating the CNS, which supposedly can burn more calories.)

If you want caffine, drink coffee, it has 2x or 3x the amount of caffine in it than most teas. Green teas are typically low in caffine.
 
i stay away from caffiene unless i have a big test that day or something... i take green tea for its anti-oxidant profile :wink:
 
Doesn't green tea help speed up the bodie's metabolism? I'm sure I've read that somewhere before on these forums... so essentially; in a way it would help you cut your weight.

I haven't actually drank too much of it before - but plan to incoporate it into a new diet I am putting together for myself. It can't hurt to try, heh.

Hahaha.

East collides with West here, I predict.
 
I think green tea has been shown to be more useful to the immune system and cardiac function.
 
Hmmm....apparently those studies (for enhanced immune and cardiac function) were all done in the East, and most were scientifically shaky.

Here's what Terumo wrote: "This falls into the additional antioxidant category. There are some tie-ins to EGCG and leptin, but those are somewhat unfounded. EGCG tie-ins to cAMP re-uptake show a bit more promise. If you want an extra antioxidant, choose vitamin C. After that, choose green tea, standardized for EGCG. A very strong POSSIBLY USEFUL"

I think that's why it's been such a successful supplement. Many green tea products I see out there today are enriched with Vitamin C, and they already have caffeine in them. So you're getting three excellent supplements in one: caffeine (for weight loss) and vitamin C and the EGCG (for antioxidant protection).
 
When I first began to drink green tea I noticed some weight lose. I absolutely was not doing anything different besides drinking a few cups of green tea with honey. I have probably lost about 10 pounds in maybe about 3 months. But then the weight lose stoped.

I was drinking it for the health benefit, and not to loose weight.

That reminds me I am out of green tea.

lol yea i am gonna get the capsules cause the tea i am pissing like crazy, i will stack it with sesathin.

also to people do sesathin+ephedra+green tea capsules+fish oil stack. but i am just going to do green tea and sesathin.
 
Not to mention that green tea also helps lower blood pressure. My blood pressure was on the high side (apparently my bodys very sensitive to salt) and drinking 2 cups of the tea a day helped me lower my blood pressure into a normal range.

By the way would anyone know how much egcg and polyphenols you can extract from a tea bag? The tea bag is 1.8 grams and you can't extract all the stuff from the tea leaves with just hot water. You'd probably have to eat the leaves.

I like using liquid extracts instead of the tea bags. The extracts has way more EGCG and polyphenols per cup.

I hear Vitality Works Green Tea is a good brand.

Green tea increases thermogenesis (fat burning) in your body during the daytime by up to 40%... according to almost every site on the web regarding this matter.
