Green Tea, or not to Green Tea?

Wow! Is it just me or? Wait! Let me start again, I think it's great that Oprah is the communicator to the masses that she is, without her or her influence, we would surely be less informed and less enlightened than we currently are, I can admit this, but there are certain things that exist that should not necessarily require the direction of Oprah or her throng of guests to bring to light there-well there mere existence?

Green Tea is one such discovery?now there I go; it is not a discovery, although it seems like the entire US population has just been introduced to the latest and the greatest discovery since the last big thing, exercise for weight management? How many centuries has this natural substance existed? And I know that Dr. Perricone did not invent green tea either, but you'd never know it by the response evidenced by his appearance on the Oprah show. By the way I do like and enjoy both Oprah and Dr. Perricone and agree with most of the good doctors 'discoveries'.

And the truth be known, I have known about green tea for decades and have enjoyed its many benefits for as long, boy do I need Oprah to discover me? I wonder if Bob Green would mind. Hmmm, there's still Martha Stewart, hey Martha have you tried green tea? Well, anyway?

As it turns out, coffee just, well what do I know and who the heck am I anyway, here's what the expert has to say? Dr. Perricone explains, "Coffee has organic acids that raise your blood sugar, which affects insulin levels and insulin puts a lock on body fat. When you switch over to green tea, you will get your much needed caffeine, in addition to lowering insulin levels and, here is the doosey?body fat will diminish somewhat rapidly. So, overall, 10 pounds in six weeks should be the result. But if I may chime in, regimented exercise and proper supportive nutrition, as well as adequate hydration should precede any and all wonder discoveries for health, wellbeing, vitality and lifestyle, then again?what do I know.

All jokes aside, I am elated to see that Oprah has jumped on the bandwagon and is exposing the numerous health benefits associated with green tea, like; its ability to enhance immune system function, build stronger bones, and decrease the risk of cancer?just to name a few. Conversely, the biggest buzz is about green tea's ability to contribute to winning the battle of the bulge, pretty cool eh?

Sure enough, studies on green tea continue to reach the same conclusions. Not to mention, green tea also assists appetite suppression, helps to burn more daily calories and works to increase your body's energy production. Incidentally, by increasing activity, decreasing your caloric intake and managing your hydration, with the addition of green tea?weight loss becomes a natural process.

The only drawback with these studies experts say is?that a person would have to drink a couple of quarts of green tea daily to obtain these benefits, which would be next to impossible. Personally, I don't know of anyone who has the time to prepare and drink 10-15 cups of green tea each day, nor based on my less than 'official' expert opinion should you really have to, but I am not an official expert, just a lifelong practitioner of balance and moderation in exercise and eating right? How do you become an expert anyway? Martha, Martha? Ms. Stewart!!!
