I used to drink tea and loved it when I wasnt a LFRV.
3 months strong on LFRV and loving it, but I thought for health and possible greater performance in athletics, green tea is a good option to bring back into my diet?
I had a pot this morning with ginger and lemon.
Whats your experiences with GT?
there are some studies applauding the merits (some sort of increase in alpha wave brain activity and some anti-oxidant benefits ... can't recall but can find out if you want me to since i have the studies somewhere on my computer) of green tea (dr greger advocates it and says you can go decaf if you don't like caffeine ... don't know why anyone would like caffeine!).
i've tried it in the past and have no idea what these merits are.
i have never liked the taste (or after taste) and always let it cool down because i don't like hot temps.
i do know it makes a good cleaning agent though because when we used to go to chinese restaurants some decades ago the waiters would always take the leftover green tea and pour it all over the table and wipe it clean it before letting people sit there.
i don't know if you can tell anything in a week that is actually valid, taylor.
my objection to green tea and other 'super goodies' is that they seem to fall into the 'quick fix' and 'feel good' categories.
we used to market super blue green algae more than a decade ago. while i think the product can be given consideration in terms of demonstrable nutrient density, it is absurd to think this stuff will "change your life" (and there are numerous claims as to how this will happen from mental clarity to physical prowess) if you don't do the foundational stuff which lfrv advocates. dr klaper used to echo the same sentiments (though he is lfv not lfrv) when it came to the algae and diseases caused by animal protein consumption.
we had customers who wanted this green stuff to make them feel wonderful while they carried on with their corpse consumption, their alcoholic tendencies, their drug use and their detrimental lifestyles.
we dropped customers like that. they were a waste of time and always looking for the next fad.
"feeling good" is a useless and deceptive panacea.
it should never be confused with "being good".
imho and experience, there is nothing in any "super stuff" that will enhance lfrv.
eat right, drink right, live right.
that's where the super stuff really is.
caffeine is also addictive in addition to being a stimulant.
huge no-no as far as i'm concerned! drug city!
imho, there are so many better things to drink than green tea ... like water.
Once your into this LFRV lifestyle your body won't be able to tolerate the Green Tea anymore.
It has an effect similar to cacao on me now on occasions when I drink it. My heart is racing and I get anxious and adrenals are depleted.
Sometimes it's scary how sensitive this diet/lifestyle makes you over time.
I used to drink several cups of green tea a day, too back when I thought it was healthy...
