Effects of tea on weight loss ?

For the folks that know about nutrition

I've pretty much quit drinking pop,
I was curious if Natural uncafinated Tea's had the same downfalls,

Thanks,

Tea = diuretic, and green tea = antioxidant.

So...

If you drink green tea, you'll pee a lot and never rust.

Getting away from all that sugar and corn syrup is smart.

And from my personal experience tea dehydrates you less than coffee. This is subjective and may be wrong, but that's how it feels.

Caffine is a natural appetite suppressant, but the amounts vary from person to person. As Chills said though: Drink water... add in some green tea and splash some currant juice into the water if you're bored w/ flavor.

Thanks everyone.

I do drink a lot of water but was looking for something enjoyable to add
long term. I had some natural peach iced tea at a resturant that tased good,
and was hoping this was something I could add with no concequence.

The stuff on the non caffinated tea boxes all sounded ok but I wasn't sure of side effects or if I am replacing one evil with another.

green tea sure does taste rough.

what does currant juice do ?

Currant juice = wonderful anti-oxidant.


Get the good nectar that actually has some pulverized flakes of skin in it. It also makes boring water taste better

Anti-oxidant is a generic term. There are different types of antioxidants that do different things. ACES vs CoQ10. But in any case, yes...tea is a better choice than coffee if you want to drink something more "healthy" (excuse me for using the term so loosely, but we're on the short version today). Can anything bad be said about tea? Sure. But what amounts would you have to drink and so on? I would say that if anything, you are much better off drinking tea than everything else but water. I trust whatever is in most tea's more than I would a cup of coffee, gatorade, soda, etc...If you are drinking tea excessively then you can be running to the bathroom a bit more. So having a cup'o day I would not worry about. But I wouldn't go drinking it right before a race or other sporting event...stick with water for that.

And I don't know about everyone else...I have no shortage of people here at the office who drink tea because it's better for them than coffee (ok that's fine), but then I see them dump 3 artificial creamers and 4 packets of sugar in there. Eating shit is not good for you. Putting shit into a salad and then eating it does not make it any better.

uhm, the only currant juices I know(Red Currant & Black Currant), are definately not raisins, since they are berries, not grapes...

I was drinking ass loads of tea when i was cutting weight prior to going to military. But it was pure tea, no sweetners.

You could be right... I know I've bought dried currants for baking, and they came in a "Sun Maid" box, right next to the raisins.

good responses, thanks a bunch.

Going to try Tea for an after dinner drink for awhile.
I don't put a bunch of crap in it, maybe a slice of lemon and a 1/2 teaspoon of honey.... the peach one I found really tastes good. At the resturant they mixed peach and mango tea's together

Oh, Do currants look like little yellow raisins ?

Yes, and the come in different colors.

Fresh currants (reds are in store now) look like plump holly berries (no, not plump Halle Berry).

They are often dried and you will find them in the produce section (or shelves) near the raisins (as KB said). They are about the same size as raisins when dried, though sometimes a little larger because they don't tend to dry them as much.

As with any fresh fruit, fresh (or least processed) is best and the real benefit comes from all the good stuff in the skin (think tomato, grape, cherry etc.)

So where does Diet Coke fold into all of this? I know it's not the best choice out there, but what is so bad about it? Is it the phenylketonurics, the caffeine, the aspartame?

Should I cut back from the 12 or so I drink a day to keep my awake at work?

I'll say this on a general level which is partly my personal view and part what I've watched and read. The further along we come as a society, the more things are available for us to eat. We want good, fast and cheap. This is accomplished in bulk quantities with cheap or synthetic ingredients.

So if we look at something like diet soda, my guess with little backup would be that you are always better off not drinking it at all vs drinking it. This ingredient or that one will have studies done on them to make sure that they are safe enough. Note that as foods are released they need to meet tolerance levels of safety and not be 100% safe. There's a certain number of bug parts that can be in your can of tomato soup since it's bulk produced and so on. So a study can be conducted on something like aspartame which shows that there is no conclusive evidence that cancer can be caused...there may be other things which are omitted...headaches, slightly elevated blood pressure, etc.

One thing here or there is not going to hurt. So drinking diet pop sometimes ain't gonna do nothin' to ya. But it's this accumulation of all of these things. Smoke, diet pop, alcohol, fast foods...all of these things add up little by little.

I believe that everything you intake can have an immediate effect on your body. Try eating McDonalds before you workout vs a nutri-grain bar. Different things and chemicals will cause you to respond differently. So that diet soda which give you a headache and keeps you from working out that day can have that trickle effect.

What I'm really saying is: Drink regular soda instead
