image017Want to keep your weight steady over winter, or perhaps lose a few kilos? One simple tip….Make GREEN TEA your tea of choice. Green tea helps to boost the metabolic rate, which means you burn more calories. 3-4 cups a day is ideal. A 2010 study revealed that 500mls of water (2 cups) consumed before meals showed a 2 kg greater weight loss over a 12wk period. When combined with GREEN TEA then the effects are greater. If you don’t like it on its own, try blending with nettle (good for skin) or sage (for hot flushes).
