Lose fat naturally - corn silk tea and green tea pills(catechin)

They're everywhere in Korea.  Go to a 7-11 and you'll see bottles of it next to green tea and water.  Jun Jihyun used to parade it's slimming properties on ads in tv for the longest time.  I just never got it.  How can "corn silk tea" be slimming?  I thought it was just another health fad.

Boy was I wrong.  I am delighted to be wrong with this one because I myself is benefiting from its benefits.  

I pour myself a drink of hot corn silk first thing in the morning.  My favorite brand is this organic corn silk tea I order online from Emart.  

It's my new morning ritual.  I sip it slowly even in this summer heat to warm my tummy and get my body ready for its diuretic effects.   It makes you go peeee - but that's a good thing because you're getting rid of toxins, water retention, and all that stuff that makes you heavy - meaning you're body is slow to detoxify daily "garbage" you inhale, breathe, and absorb(skin).  

I didn't think much of it the first few weeks.  I've been enjoying the nutty corn taste - it's actually one of the better tasting tea!

And behold, my husband comes back from being away for 2 weeks and compliments on what I've done to slim my legs.  Mind you, I have disproportionate heavy set of legs compared to the size of the rest of my body.  I also get crampy legs at the end of day and occasionally turn to my husband to massage it out.  He knows my struggle. 

I have noticed my body feeling lighter after picking up the corn silk tea habit.  I don't feel as bloated (especially those menstrual days before and after).

I've also been taking WILD DIET 24 (from VITAMIN HOUSE) for its catechin benefits to speed up fat burn.  Instead of trying out newer diet pills, I thought I'd try something that's been around forever, green tea. Catechin or cathechin is from green tea.  I thought about how slim Japanese are as a whole nation, genetically they are very slim people (I know it's I'm so simple minded), so I thought they must have something in their genes that's keeping them so slim.  I know I know.. but that's how my mind works sometimes.  Connect the dots.


So has those things worked?  


Yes, I do feel lighter and slimmer.  To add, my face hasnt been breaking out like it used to from hormonal and "WTF-where-and-why" pimples.  Perhaps its the speedier detoxification, or just drinking more water.  I don't know exactly, I wish I could I could tell you.   

I don't workout like I used to (kettle bells and all).  I just move my body often nowadays, but I don't make it a do or die routine either. But I do yoga when I feel like it, which is once a week (40 minutes sessions from youtube).  I usually try to do some morning stretches - like moving my neck, shoulders, down dogs, simple stuff.   I also make a point not to go to sleep with cramped legs (body)Overall, I guess I make sure I have good circulation at the start and end of the day.  I try to be aware of my posture as well.   Staying active as a life style has kept us slimmerWe walk/bus/train it when we go out.  I don't prefer taxis - their service sucks balls (oops) and I'd rather get my body busy and moving with out trying to workout.  Working out feels so forced sometimes to me, and I think that stress factor is not so healthy. 


I have my husband take this big daddy catechin 630mg bottle.  I take a 200mg(not this one).  Note that this contains caffeine.  I make sure he takes this with a fatty meal.  As a caution, we do not take our vitamins/supplements daily.  I make sure we don't over do it nutrition - just enough is good for us.  Enough food, nutrition, and workout.  I'm trying this formula and we'll see how it goes.
