I just read this article while doing research and it has some great info, but I'd really like to know if anyone has personal experience with green tea helping. How much did you drink, how often, how (iced/hot), and so on. :)

I drink cold green tea all the time. I don't really notice any difference in how I feel but then again, I have been drinking it for most of my life so I don't know how I would feel if I wasn't drinking it.

I have tried green tea a time or two but just don't really find it tasty. I like my tea really strong and green tea just isn't. I may reconsider it and try a new brand after reading this article. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it.

Are you trying it? Have you noticed any difference?

I do drink it and don't see any change with it or not with it.. I do drink it with orange and lemon and blackberry and even mint added into it.. I like it.. I will soak a tea bag over night in it.. I also have done sun tea with it in my gallon jug... I think a lot of teas are ok but personally I don't think losing weight shows with drinking tea... just my opinion..

I drink it and from time to time.  I think it helps me in weight control because I am drinking it in lieu of soda.  Both lab and clinical trials show that it increases metabolism, but not in a significant way.

Thanks, everyone! Exactly what I was looking for! :)

I'm going to buy some, just to swap out a cup or two of coffee with it, and I'll let you know if I notice any change. :)
