When I saw this on my Facebook newsfeed the other day, I couldn’t help but burst out laughing. It is so true that there are so many people out there who are just looking for that quick-fix or instant weight loss through diet and while it is true that the cathchin in green tea increases metabolism slightly, drinking green tea alone is not going to help you lose your fats.
Sure, there are a few slimming teas out there and the ingredients inside all work somewhat like how the catechin does. However, one cannot forget that if you only drink/eat such foods but don’t exercise, it will not change anything. It increases your metabolism by only a minuscule amount.
I don’t believe in the “no pain, no gain” mantra either. Exercise does not mean boring yourself on the treadmill or elliptical machine. There are so many other things to do! For example, yoga, pilates, dancing or zumba. Nonetheless, that quote above does have a lesson: in order to lose weight, you’ve got to put in the effort. Sorry guys, but there’s no quick weight loss regime there. If you see any diet programmes that tell you that you ONLY have to eat that pill in order to lose weight, they’re all lies. You might be losing precious muscle instead or merely water. Be smart.
