Health Fitness

I’m sure I can speak for the majority of people who want to maintain a healthy life so that we have the ability to live to a ripe old age. One of those painful subjects that we never like to deal with is weight loss. It’s the kind of thing that we can turn on like a light switch and, at the opposite end, turn it off. But not exactly at our free will. Losing weight and working out was something I had always wanted to pursue and continue to do, but what are the right things for a man my age that I can easily do? I have decided to try the green tea diet for thirty days and see what all the fuss is about. I have heard so many good things, and doctors and scientists believe that this herb has many positive elements that can help me control my appetite, lower my blood pressure, and feel young.

Just an overview of what I have to deal with. First of all, I’m about 40 pounds overweight, I don’t have the best metabolism but I live an active lifestyle full of sports. Second, I have inherited hypertension, it is on both my father’s and mother’s side of the family, it is inescapable! That is the general realization I am faced with, a basis for my study. Let’s see what some of the results are.

I dove headlong into this diet to accomplish one thing, not to lose weight, but to see what it does to my blood pressure without relying on blood pressure medications. I will continue to eat my three full meals a day and use the green tea solution as a snack between meals. Because trust me, I love my in-between snacks, and who doesn’t? So, in early March, I took my last blood pressure pill, and the pumps are gone!

After drinking green tea for the first week, I noticed a drop in my blood pressure readings close to what it was when I was taking blood pressure pills. I was surprised because I didn’t think there was anything that could have dropped it like that. I have also noticed less desire to eat when I drink the tea, I don’t know where it comes from, but it could be a result of filling up on fluids. After a couple of weeks my blood pressure has been stable so I know it’s working. And after the last few days, there are still no spikes in the readings, so I was hooked. In the thirty days, I have also lost seven pounds, very good! It seemed to me that the urban legend was the truth! The only negative, green tea is not the tastiest of teas, it does have that hint of seaweed flavor, but you get used to it.

Also, from what I understand, green tea has antioxidants to prevent disease, make our skin feel smooth, and protect our memory. But seeing the short term effects, I can say that I will make green tea a staple in my diet. I would not recommend green tea pills as they contain caffeine, I don’t want to be up until the wee hours of the morning! All in all, my thirty day trial has shown that green tea has some great positive properties that simply cannot be ignored. Let’s see what other effects it has six months from now!
