Dr. Ozs Tangerine Weight-Orade.
Dr. Oz Recipe
Day 7 of my 365 Days of Pinterest ... I chose the popular weight loss pin ... Dr Oz Weight - Orade. I actually began this a week ago so I could track my progress.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Here is the science behind the theory straight from Dr Oz web site
"It contains: green tea, shown to boost metabolism 12% by drinking just one cup; tangerine, with a chemical composition that increases sensitivity to insulin and stimulates genes that help to burn fat; and mint, a calorie-free flavor enhancer."
Verdict. I love the tea .. its refreshing and light. Its no magical weight loss elixir but it helps throughout the day to manage my snacking. I feel healthy as well drinking the tea over a diet coke. I did loose 2 pounds but I have lowered my calorie intake. I do think the tea helps.
Note* Green Tea is a diuretic so I make sure I drink alot of water throughout the day. Also I am a vegetarian with an iron deficiency and green tea is said to block non meat iron absorption so I take my iron supplement before bed not having consumed the tea 2 hours prior and 5 hours after.
Overall I think the tea is a good addition to a healthy life style and is great to add to any weight loss routine.
