The Green Tea Diet - 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge - Does it Work?

I'm sure I can speak for most people, that we want to sustain a healthy life so that we have the ability to live up to a ripe old age. One such sore subject we never like dealing with is weight loss. It's the type of thing that we can turn on like a light switch, and on the opposite end, turn it off. But not exactly to our own free will. Weight loss and exercise was something I have always wanted to pursue and keep doing, but what are the right things for a man my age that I can easily do. I've decided to give the Green Tea diet a check for thirty days and see what all the buzz is about. I've heard so much good things, and doctors and scientists believe this herb has many positive elements that can help me curb my appetite, lower my blood pressure, and feel young.

Just an overview on what I have to deal with. First of all, I'm about 40 lbs over weight, I don't have the best metabolism but I do live an active lifestyle full of sports. Secondly, I have inherited hypertension, it is in both my father's side of the family and my mother's, it's inescapable! That is the overall realization I'm faced with, a foundation for my study. Let's see what some of the results come out to be.

I dove head first into this diet to achieve one thing, not to lose the weight, but to see what it does to my blood pressure without depending on blood pressure medication. I'll still eat my three square meals a day and use the green tea solution as my snack in between meals. Because believe me, I love my in-between snacks, and who doesn't? So in the beginning of March, I took my last blood pressure pill, and bombs away!

After drinking green tea for the first week, I've noticed a drop in my blood pressure readings close to what they were when I took blood pressure pills. I was shocked because I didn't think there was something that could have dropped it like that. I've also noticed a less desire to eat when I drink the tea, I don't know where it comes from, but it could be a result on filling up on fluids. After another couple weeks, my blood pressure has held steady, so I know it is doing its thing. And after the final days, still no spike in the readings, so I was hooked. In the thirty days, I have also lost seven pounds, very nice! It seemed to me the urban legend was the truth! The one negative, green tea is not the most tastiest of teas, it kind of has that hint of grassy seaweed taste, but you get used to it.

In addition, from what I understand, green tea has antioxidants to prevent sickness, make our skin feel smooth, and protect our memory. But by seeing the short term effects, I can say that I will make green tea a regular staple in my diet. I would not recommend green tea pills as they have caffeine in there, don't want to be up into the wee hours of the morning! All in all, my thirty day test has proven that green tea has great positive properties that just can't be ignored. Let's see what other effects it has six months from now!
