Question Does chinese diet tea really work ?

I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried chinese diet tea. Does this stuff really work ? They are some pills that you put in 6 oz. of boiling water and let dissolve. Has anyone tried this ? Also, can someone tell me the difference between calories and fat calories ??? Thanks !

My mom has tried Chinese Diet Tea and though it may sound harmless, the name is definately deceiving. Basically it is a laxative-based drink, so of course you may lose some weight, but only water weight. This, as you may already know, is unhealthy. I suggest just drinking green tea or black tea, which is not only tasty but is NOT a diuretic and has cancer-fighting elements in it. Good luck.

Hi, I recall hearing and reading that Green tea had natural stimulants - all stimulants are bad for you. I have also heard that Teas have high amounts of tannins. Tannins make some people sick. They make me sick I can't eat caffeine, leaf teas, chocolate, etc. they all have tannins ( do a search on tannins carcinogenic ). Just because something is natural doesn't make it good for your body.

If you think about it, Chinese diet tea could be ephedra and water without mis-representing itself.

Ma Heung after all, was a Chinese used herb for centuries.
