Is it worth it? don't really like the taste but people are telling me to stick with it, that there are loads of benefits, can anyone fill me in?

I am taking green tea leaf extract capsules from the health shop along with some tonalin cla. I assume you are asking for weight loss? She also recommended drinking 2 cups a day of green tea. It is an anti oxidant and aids weight loss. It seems to be working so far, but it's coupled with a calorie controlled diet and exercise 4 times a week. But the proof will be in the pudding when I have my measurements/weight taken again in 2 weeks.

Without this - [quote="Jawl":ubbuajsw]coupled with a calorie controlled diet and exercise 4 times a week.[/quote:ubbuajsw] Green Tea won't help you lose weight. I found it dehydrated by skin so stopped drinking it and now drink more water instead.

Chicken, I am also trying to drink 1.5-2 litres of water a day as well. Flush out the system totally :-) Also helps with hunger.

Yeah, I usually feel hungry about 4'ish in work, so I have a green tea then and another about 7 or 8'ish, my next 'hungry time'. In between I sip/gulp water. 9 times out of 10 I'm thirsty!
