Drink Tea to Eliminate Belly Fat

If you are trying to eliminate the jiggle around your waistline, tea may be a smart addition to our diet and abs workout program according to researches. Although drinking tea may not make belly fats magically dissolve immediately, believe me, it may help enhance the results.

Since the beginning of this summer season, I also started working out to at least reduce my belly fats, and I’m serious this time, really.

One Top Lifestyle Tea

And since I am very eager to dispose my excess fats, I have been researching for ways on how to eliminate that jiggle around my waistline. And, based on my research, I found out that other than red wine before bed time, tea is also one of the best ways to aid in your weight lost program and I think it’s effective.

However, my biggest problem is that I am not really used into drinking tea as I am a coffee addict, and I am not sure if I would love the taste of tea. I really thought that switching into tea would be a big challenge for me, but when I tried, I found out it’s not and I actually enjoyed it.

From doing my abs work out in the morning, limiting my carbs and sugar intake, walking for at least 40 minutes a day to drinking a glass of red wine at night, I still want to add tea to my diet to maximize my daily weight loss program.

Knowing that I am hesitant to drink tea, a friend of mine from Japan recommended Karel Capek’s tea for my weight loss program since it has a wide variety of classic and flavored black teas to offer. She shipped a few flavors of the said tea all the way from Japan to Philippines so I could try a few flavors, hoping that I would love its taste, and bingo! She got me!

I was quite surprised that Karel Capek’s tea has really got the perfect tea blends for me. I tried all the flavors that my friend sent me – the Royal Apple, Cream Girls Tea, White Peach Tea and the 2017 Year’s Tea. I tried all of them, and with or without sugar and milk, I just love it! It has the rich and smooth flavor of tea that I would definitely enjoy.

What is even more surprising is when my 8-year old daughter, who is also a picky eater like me, tried my tea and she enjoyed its taste. In fact, she loves it and now she keeps on asking me to buy more. She loved the Cream Girls Tea the most since she loves strawberries.

I am grateful that I can now make my unica hija to drink tea without further ado. We could now both enjoy drinking tea while getting all the nutrients and benefits that it can provide to our health. Thanks to my very good friend for recommending Karel Capek.

Meanwhile, if you would ask the effect of tea for my weight loss, I feel like it’s indeed an effective way to reduce belly fats since I can really feel it. I am starting to lose some weight and my belly fat is starting to get smaller and smaller. So, cheers to a fitter and healthier new me!
