A common mistake made by many dieters is not taking into account what they drink. The truth is the fluids you consume can have just as big an impact on your waistline – and your health – as the foods you eat.
Of course, that means for dieters who are serious about losing weight – no more soda and no more alcohol … But what about green tea and black tea?
Green Tea Is Making You Fat ... You Should Be Drinking Red Tea Instead
Are these teas good for you – or could they actually cause you to gain unwanted weight?
The answer may surprise you. You see, most people think green tea, in particular, can help you lose weight not gain it … But that may not necessarily be the case.
Several studies have shown that green tea does not affect weight loss...
For example, a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2009 found that green tea extract did not affect the resting metabolic rate of 12 normal weight men.
Meanwhile, a Cochrane Review of green tea research found that green tea led to only small, statistically insignificant weight loss in overweight or obese adults. The review also noted that regular consumption of green tea didn't help people keep weight off.
In addition to these alarming findings, there could be another problem – if you are putting sugar into your green tea that could be a source of extra calories that you are not accounting for.
According to experts, some people who are frequent tea drinkers may consume up to 300 calories or more a day from sugar.
So what about Black tea?
Black tea is actually “burnt green tea,” and it is full of caffeine just like regular green tea. Ingesting too much caffeine can cause heart palpitations, nausea, vomiting and “jittery” feelings.
Even if you drink decaffeinated green or black tea, the decaffeination process destroys much of the natural ingredients. It makes more sense to drink a tea that naturally contains no caffeine (like the tea I’m going to reveal in just a moment).
Another common problem with black tea is that it is often taken with milk, which slows down the absorption rate of valuable antioxidants and polyphenols. Surprisingly, skim milk slows this process down at a greater extent than whole milk.
So if green tea and black tea are not ideal for weight loss what should the responsible dieter drink?
The answer was found in the jungles of Africa where Kenyan tribesmen drink red tea to eliminate hunger pangs while they hunt for their next meal.
Red tea not only gets rid of hunger pangs, but it also promotes fat burning and boosts energy without relying on caffeine. That’s right, red tea is caffeine free.
Red tea is basically the perfect health drink. It’s refreshing and tasty, hot or iced. It helps clear toxins … it reduces fat-storing hormones … and it promotes the production of fat-burning hormones … all while naturally reducing stress and balancing insulin.
I’m a naturopath, and I’ve spent years studying the benefits and side effects of each of the 5 unique ingredients that go into red tea. It’s these ingredients, which can be found at the local supermarket, working together that makes red tea the ultimate metabolism-boosting, fat-busting, energy-revitalizing drink … and these ingredients are not found in green or black tea.
Red tea is caffeine free, vegan and vegetarian safe, dairy free, gluten free and sugar-free.
It’s a great alternative to caffeine — with absolutely no jitters, so “flushing fat away” is safe and rapid. Red tea also contains no fats or carbohydrates. The flavor is mild and slightly sweet.
One more thing about red tea, it has no oxalic acid, so there is no risk of kidney stones, unlike with black and green teas. It also has very low tannin levels so it’s much better for you than green and black teas that have high tannin levels and can bind iron.
One great thing about red tea is that it is packed full of powerful antioxidants that fight oxidative damage caused by toxins in your body and that are scientifically proven to have an antibacterial, antiparasitic and antiviral action to boost your immunity.
The bottom line is drinking delicious red tea not only “halts hunger” but can also reverse the harm caused by the built-up toxins in your fat cells with its powerful antioxidants.
That’s why I believe that red tea could be the breakthrough many people who have been struggling to lose fat have been waiting for.
It’s a delicious red tea that requires no doctor’s visits, no lectures about losing weight, no expensive pills, no starving yourself and no intense workouts…
And best of all — it helps eliminate harmful fat by working with your body’s natural fat-burning metabolism and doing it all — without you feeling any cravings or hunger pangs!
Imagine … Enjoying the foods, you love: steak, a beer, or even a dessert completely guilt-free.
Imagine … Living a life free of expensive prescriptions and endless doctor’s visits to renew the pills.
And imagine… Feeling good, and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
… All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing red teas ever discovered.
