What happens when you drink green tea for 6 weeks?


green tea benefits for weightloss

I love tea. That's for sure.. even better if I can get myself to commit to a specific one but there are way too many varieties to stick to one. Anyway, I decided to give green tea a try for six weeks to see if I too can experience the great benefits green tea has been claimed to offer. Every green tea lover swears by this tea so I thought I'd give it a try too!

Frankly, my lifestyle has become less upbeat with me blogging and spending hours seated behind a computer. I love what I do, but I find that it's quite easy to get lazier and too comfortable with snuggling up especially in the cooler months leading to a somewhat sedentary lifestyle. Snacks and sweets come in handy for me during these times. 

What I noticed recently was a decline in my energy levels and quite frankly it wasn't quite there before either. Safe to say I'm unfit which I'd like to clarify a big misconception which is slim girls are fit. Believe me I'm proof that it's not true. Green tea is known as an 'energy pick me up' which is why I did this experiment.

Also, I gained a naughty 5 pounds which would have been okay by me if my tummy didn't want to play peek-a-boo through my clothes. I don't usually work out, all I do it try to eat healthy. So I thought green tea was the right way to go for a not-so-quick fix. 

I used green tea as a weight loss tool but what I've found is way bigger than that. Although I may have to give green tea another go just to be certain but in 6 weeks:

-my hair lengthened by half an inch (my hairdresser pointed this out)
-my face cleared up more (reduced acne and whiteheads)
-my energy levels increased slightly 
-my tummy looks flatter
-my skin looks and feels great by a tad

Benefit of drinking green tea is vast and goes deeper than aesthetics but these are the things I've been able to notice in 6 weeks. Green tea is said to contain all these amazing antioxidants, cancer-preventing polyphenols and fat burning catechins. 

It is recommended to drink 5-6 cups of green tea per day but I honestly just drink one or two as 6 seems excessive to me and let's not forget it does contain caffeine so I can't drink it past a certain hour. I did cut out sweets too but stuck to my usual diet. 

Anyway, I'll keep you guys updated in another 6 weeks which will make it a 3 months update. Till then, grab yourself a cuppa!

  6. So cool to know!! I feel like I never try anything long enough to allow myself to see a difference in what I benefited from, but seeing all that you noticed after doing this in particular for 6 weeks definitely makes me want to try! <3

  10. I LOVE this post! I often read about the benefits of green tea without truly seeing a difference in my body or health. I would not consistently drink this specific type of tea. I gravitate to black teas more than green, but after reading this post, I will be reaching more for the green tea! Thank you for posting this!

  15. I have been thinking about starting to drink green tea, I even bought it already! But it just tastes so bad! If I'm drinking tea, it should be like dreamy strawberry-cheese-cupcakes or something like that. So, I might try it again someday, but I just need to get used to the taste.
