Week 2 – Day 4

GREEN TEA
As part of his Eat Yourself Skinny list, Dr. Oz suggests guzzling green tea to feel full between meals. Chockfull of a phytonutrient called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), green tea increases the hormone responsible for making you feel satiated. Drinking green tea daily has long-term benefits as well. It can help prevent storage of excess fat, improve your appetite-regulating hormones and change how your body handles cravings and metabolizes food.

I now drink mostly tea during the day (other than water). I have many types of green tea and although I don’t steep it long enough as I don’t particularly like strong tea. I also really enjoy jasmine tea which I learned to really appreciate while working in China many years ago.
