Will drinking green/herbal tea aid in weight loss? And if so which type of tea is best to do so? Thanks in advance.

Safe, but: It won't help you lose weight. You can only do that by eating less and exercising more -- plus the diet rx's you're already on can help you, but only for as long as you take them. The diet and exercise can work for the rest of your life. If obesity is severe, bariatric surgery may be needed. There are no magic foods or supplements that help weight loss. Don't get info from the friends, tv, interne. ...Read more

Cosmetic, treatable: Though you have health issues, this is probably unrelated. Usually hereditary--look at your parents' lower lids. Most likely correctable with outpatient surgery or chemical peel for resurfacing. No otc remedy known to work. Good news-treatment safe ; long-lasting. Bad news-not covered by insurance. ...Read more

Does drinking 3 liters of water a day, help with weight loss?

Drinking water (or plain green tea) before a meal can also fill up the stomach somewhat, and make a person satisfied with a smaller meal. If substituting water for non-fat milk, one would need another source for vitamin d and calcium. Caution when >2 liters/day (excess water dilutes the sodium). ...Read more
