Ultimate Tea Diet

Wulong Tea or oolong tea - have you heard of it?

Apparently I'm out of the loop on this one, but supposedly it can help you lose weight. It's been covered on Good Morning America and other TV shows, but I missed it.

According to Angela Chang at ColonZone.com, who suggests you start with 7 to 10 cups of this healthy tea per week, studies have shown that WuLong tea can help:

- Diabetes
- Acne and Eczema
- Allergies
- Infections
- Cavities
- Weight Gain and Obesity
- Reducing the effects of smoking
- Increasing metabolism
- Helping digestion
- Reduce risk of heart disease

According to Gary Gause of
DragonWaterTea.com,
A study was conducted by the University of Tokushima School of Medicine along with several other Japanese universities involving 11 Japanese women who consumed either water, green matcha tea, or oolong tea after a meal. Oolong tea appeared to increase energy expenditure by 10%, green tea by 4%, and water not at all.

So while green tea is still best for fighting cancer, it does seem that oolong tea can help us lose weight.

Obviously you need to eat healthy and exercise, there is no magic pill or tea that works all by itself! (If only there was!)

Luckily, I've found a place that sells Formosa Oolong tea (also known as Wulong tea) along with many other healthy teas and things... right here.


There's also a book: "The Ultimate Tea Diet"
How Tea Can Boost Your Metabolism, Shrink Your Appetite, and Kick-Start Remarkable Weight Loss, By Mark Ukra, who was on ABC's "The View" today. You can visit his website here.
