Effective Weight-loss Drink

Disclaimer : This is NOT an advertorial/review.

Have not been drinking much soft/sweet/gas-y drinks since the end of 2012. Was telling my family that i salute myself for not touching them over the CNY; the best time to feast - eat & drink whatever you like! Drank at the most 2-3 sips from ZY/sis/mum's when i'm really really thirsty, but very seldom. I replaced all those drinks with PLAIN WATER, warm water to be specific.


The reasons why i wanna do so are cos, 1) 我怕肥 and 2) i don't want my kids to indulge on all these drinks till it becomes a habit. Which is why i must set a good example by not drinking them so i can convince my kids that they are not good for health. 

P/S : I can't comprehend why some people said sweetened Green tea is a healthy drink? How so? Sweet = sugar, drinking too much of it may lead to diabetes. And hey, it's FATTENING!!! Thank god i don't like it!

But sometimes, the sun can kill and drinking some cold beverages will make your day slightly better. However, no soft/sweet/gas-y drinks for me either, i drink this...


Actually, i copied drinking this from my bro whom lost 30kgs within a few months. (YES, THIRTY, but of cos, with exercise & lesser food intake.) I gotta admit, i really dislike it when i first drank it, maybe becos it's chilled? It tasted just like chinese tea, but chilled chinese tea? Hmm, weird!

Then, i went to google about "Oolong tea" and i found out many health benefits of it. And most importantly (to me), it helps to lose weight!!! That's when i started drinking and in love with it now!

Oolong Tea Weight Loss Fact #1:Weight Loss Tea?

First let me assure you: Drinking oolong tea does help you lose weight.

Even in traditional tea drinking countries like China and Japan, it has a huge reputation and following for helping people keep slim.

It is widely accepted in China that all teas - especially green tea, oolong tea and pu-erh tea - "make one thin."

Oolong tea is not as well studied as green tea. But there is decent scientific evidence that it helps lose weight by,
  • Increasing metabolism
  • Burning fat (through a process called lipolysis) 
  • Blocking dietary fat absorption

Oolong Tea Weight Loss Fact #2:Fat Blocker

In Asia, oolong tea is a popular accompaniment for greasy food.

Now, scientists have proven that it is an effective fat blocker.

A study conducted by the University of Tokushima found that it can double the amount of fat being excreted.

12 young Japanese adults participated in the 17-day study, consisting of 10 days of washout and 7 days of treatment.

The scientists found that fat excretion was twice as high for those who consumed oolong tea compared to the placebo.

Oolong Tea Weight Loss Fact #3:Keep Slim

After you have lost weight successfully, you face a long fight to keep fats from piling on.

What do you do? I don't really recommend consuming fat burner supplements for longer than 3 months. They might be toxic when accumulated over the long term.

This is when a suitable tea beverage comes in. They are proven natural fat burner over the long term.

A 2007 American study found that rats prone to obesity cut weight gain by 66% by consuming the equivalent of 6 cups of tea a day.

In addition, their triglyceride fats were 80% lower.

Oolong Tea Weight Loss Fact #4:Reduce Belly Fat & Cholesterols 

A 2001 Japanese study found that drinking 1 litre of oolong tea a day can take 2 years off the internal organ age.

Out of the 11 participants, 9 experienced 2 centimeters reduction in their waist size and 8 experienced 2 centimeters reduction in their upper arms.

They also observed lower cholesterols levels.
