Green Tea, sugar and 7 a day

In the last few days I have read several articles about the help that Green Tea can be for weightloss. There's a new chinese weightloss tea which includes green tea extract being advertised on the internet and research is being reported about how people who drink three cups of green tea a day lost more weight on a healthy diet than those who didn't drink green tea.

So if you're trying to lose a bit of weight then green tea could be a great help! It is also, obviously lower calorie than a latte (!) and full of antioxidants which makes it a good addition to your "5 a day"

Actually the "5 a day" is now "7 a day". I recommend 5 vegetable portions and 2 fruit as fruit is higher in sugar. Sugar is said to be one of the main contributors to ageing so avoiding sugar won't just help with weightloss it will keep you looking younger too!

Healthy eating is so easy! Make sure you have 5 vegetable portions a day, 2 fruit, 2 wholemeal (e.g. two slices of wholemeal bread, two weetabix or shredded wheat) and protein (meat, fish, egg, cheese) at every meal. Have the fruit and green tea between your 3 main meals and you'll never be hungry! Oh, and stop when you're full! And drink 4 or 5 glasses of water a day (assuming 3 green teas). And that's it.

Of course, if you find this too hard you can call me and come for hypnotherapy and NLP!
