After meals i feel heavy n lazy.Although try to eat good food .I take green tea but that doesn't work either?

Overhyped: Green tea is the latest in a long line of overhyped nutritional products. Claims include weight loss, better health, longer life, better endurance. Do not believe the hype.

Counting : Counting calories and keeping a food journal can be two of the most effective ways to lose weight. Being accountable for what you put in your mouth by writing it down and being aware of calorie values will make you think about what you are eating. It is important to eat a good variety of foods, so as long as you count your calories, nothing necessarily has to be "off-limits". Get a kitchen scale and weigh your foods in order to know exactly how much you are eating and therefore how many calories. The healthiest diets involve whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, fish and moderate dairy. Sugars and added oils/butter should be used sparingly. You need to eat at least three meals a day, though some people will advocate more frequent, smaller meals. An exercise program with a lot of cardio (brisk walking every day is the best!) is also important for muscle tone, strength, and cardiovascular health. Good luck! ...Read more

Less is more!: Many of the beneficial nutrients/antioxidants in green tea are delicate compounds; heating them too much/too long destroys them! It's best to steep just 1-3 minutes at about 160 degrees, though steeping in room temperature or cold water for 2 hours may be best! See http://tinyurl.com/hodhon5 for details. (is steaming green beans or asparagus for hours better than a few minutes? more NOT better!) ...Read more
