    The First Thing That Has Worked For Me in a Long Time, October 14, 2015

    I used to be able to lose weight pretty easily when I set my mind to it. Ten years ago I went on the Atkins Diet for six months and lost about 40 pounds. While I looked and felt a lot better, the stresses that caused me to eat so poorly didn’t go away, and I really missed pizza and sandwich rolls, so I eventually gave it up and gained all of the weight back.

    Over the years since then I have tried other diet plans, but could never really stick with them. I even tried the Atkins Diet again, but it was not nearly as effective the second time. The other thing that was holding me back, though I didn’t know it at the time, was my addiction to diet soda, which is full of all kinds of chemicals that make you crave sweets and generally mess with your metabolism. I was drinking at least four or five 20 ounce bottles a day.

    I got on a test panel for the Green Tea Diet and lost a bunch of weight right off the bat, about 8 pounds in the first 5 days. By the end of the second week I had lost 12 pounds. I was amazed that I was able to completely stop drinking soda, which was motivated by reading in this book how bad it is for you. When I tried this in the past I usually got headaches even if I replaced the caffeine with coffee, but when I replaced it with green tea it was like I never missed it. Also, every other diet I have been on felt like I was depriving myself of something, but the green tea really seems to prevent that. I sometimes look up at 2:00 or 2:30 and realize that I have forgotten to eat lunch which is something that never happened to me before. Also, the tea really does seem to reduce my stress level, and I don’t find myself craving something like pizza or a cheeseburger just to make the stress go away.

    The book is called a “17-Day Diet” but I am not sure why you would stop there. This is an easy way to live. I am not much of a cook, so I don’t really make the recipes they way they are shown in the book, but I do try to build my meals around the foods they recommend. They say you will consume 1,300 or so calories per day, but I doubt I am anywhere near that low, but I am still losing weight and feeling less stressed.

    This could have been an article. Not a book. Just repeats itself and doesn’t have very many recipes which is why I bought it. Very disappointed. =(

    Please read the research on Matcha tea. It has a high lead content and is not meant to be consumed in such high quantities. Green tea that is brewed is safer because the lead is primarily in the leaves, which are left behind. Matcha tea is ground Green Tea leave which you consume. I am very disappointed in these publishers as I like the Eat This Not That series.
