10 Fat-Burning Breakfast Recipes You’ll Love…

Breakfast foods have long been associated with high-sugar, high-carb foods.

But that doesn’t have to be the case!  You can still lose weight, avoid carb-heavy foods, and enjoy delicious, comforting breakfasts.

After enjoying a Slimming Tea Oatmeal this morning, I compiled a list of my top 10 favorite weight loss breakfasts:

banana pancakes

1.  Banana Pancakes

  *gluten, grain and dairy free, no added sugar

Ingredients

  • 1 Lg Ripe Banana
  • 2 Eggs
  • Baking Soda

  1. Peel and mash the banana (I prefer to use a blender)
  2. Stir in the egg.
  3. Mix in ¼ tsp baking soda if you want to play with the fluffiness.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet and lightly spray with oil. Heat to medium-low.
  5. Pour a circle of batter into the pan. (I used about 1 or 2 Tbsp of batter per pancake).
  6. Cook until golden brown on the underside (around 1 minute) sprinkle on any chunky ingredients (e.g. cinnamon, fruit, nuts, if using), then use a spatula to flip and cook until golden brown on the other side (30 seconds to 1 minute).
  7. Serve warm

 

egg whites and rice cups

2.  Egg Whites and Broccoli Rice Cups

  • 1 Cup Cooked Quinoa (I prefer quinoa over rice because it’s much more nutritious and great for fat-burning!)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  5. Allow to cool for two to three minutes, remove slowly from muffin tin.
  6. Serve over your favorite gluten-free or seedy toast, or place over arugula for a ham & egg salad.

Honey_grapefruit_with_banana

5.  Tropical Fruit Salad

Most of us are either trying to maintain a healthy weight, or trying to trim down and get bikini slim.

Great news!  You can’t go wrong with this tangy tropical fruit salad!

It’s perfect for breakfast or midday lunch side.

Grapefruit is a powerful food for weight loss.

Studies show that it has a positive effect on your body’s levels of insulin, a fat-storage hormone.

Moreover, grapefruit is deceptively filling.

It has one of the highest water concentrations of any fruit (about 90% of its weight is water.

Ingredients

  • 2 Grapefruits, peeled & de-‘membraned’
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped Mint
  • 1 Tbsp Raw Honey

Directions

  1. Drain grapefruit sections, reserving 1/4 cup juice.
  2. Combine grapefruit sections, juice, and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Toss gently to coat.
  4. Serve immediately, or cover and chill.

 

Banana_nut_oatmeal

6.  Slimming Tea Banana Nut Oatmeal

Both oatmeal and bananas are high in appetite-suppressing resistant starch.

Plus, they help boost your metabolism!

Walnuts provide heart-healthy fats, among a myriad of other incredible benefits.  They’re a true superfood!

You may also add chia and fennel seeds for Omega-3s.

Ingredients

  • ½ Cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 1 Cup Wu-Long Slimming Tea
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped Raw Walnuts
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

Directions

  1. Bring 1-2 Cups Wu-Long Tea to a boil
  2. Add Steel-Cut Oats and Cook until desired consistency
  3. Top with Bananas, Walnuts, Cinnamon

Curry Egg Salad Sammy

7.  Curried Egg Salad

Our bodies are acidic – which breeds inflammation, and even cancers.

That’s why a lot of holistic medical practitioners work to help patients consume lots of ‘alkalizing’ foods.

My favorite Alkalizing Foods are:

1.  Lemons

2.  Spinach

3.  Slimming Tea!  <=== Alkalizing and Cancer-Fighting!

Here’s a delicious recipe you can use for curried egg salad.

I use mine over greens, or eat it with Mary’s Gone Crackers.  They’re super seedy and gluten free!

Ingredients

  • 2 Hard-Cooked Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Plain Greet Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Chopped Red Bell Pepper
  • ¼ Tsp Curry Powder
  • ½ Cup Spinach
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions

1.  Combine eggs, yogurt, bell pepper, curry powder, salt, and pepper, in a small bowl; stir well.

 

Spinach_parm_tomato_fritatta

8.  Italian Frittata

 

Eggs are an ideal food for people who want to maintain or lose weight fast.

 

They’re tasty, low in calories (about 80 per egg), and filled with satisfying protein that helps curb cravings.

(I make sure to always buy cage-free organic eggs.)

 

In fact, it’s a shame to eat them only at breakfast!

 

Ingredients

  • 6 Cage-Free Organic Eggs
  • ¼ Cup Shredded Parmesean
  • ½ Yellow Onion
  • 2 Cups Spinach
  • 2 Firm Roma or medium-sized tomatoes – cube one and slice the other
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, Pepper, and your favorite Italian herbs, such as parsley, basil, rosemary, oregano, chives, and crushed red pepper!

Directions

  1. Whisk the eggs, salt and black pepper vigorously in a mixing bowl, in order to beat a lot of air into the eggs to create a fluffier texture for the frittata.
  2. Gently mix in the cubed tomato and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  3. Grease the bottom and sides of an 8-inch, oven-proof skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high heat.
  4. Once hot, add a bit more olive oil to the pan and toss in the sliced yellow onion. 5.  Sauté for 5 minutes until the onion softens. Then add in spinach, and sauté for a quick minute, just until the spinach leaves start to wilt.
  5. Turn heat down to medium-low, and add the egg mixture into skillet. As the frittata cooks, use a rubber spatula to gently lift the cooked edges to allow uncooked eggs to run down to the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Once the eggs begin to set around the edges – after about five minutes – arrange the tomato slices on top
  7. Lower the heat to low, cover the skillet, and continue cooking for another 5-8 minutes.
  8. As it cooks, occasionally shake the skillet gently to ensure it cooks evenly, and also remove the cover a few times and use a spatula to lift the frittata to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  9. When the eggs are just about set (the top will be slightly runny) turn the fire off, uncover, and sprinkle on chopped fresh herbs.
  10. Turn the oven to broil and place the whole skillet into the oven. Broil for a few minutes (about 3-4 minutes), watch closely until the frittata is lightly browned and fluffy.
  11. Remove from oven and loosen the frittata by gently shaking the pan. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Apples and Peanut Butter

9.  Adult Lick-A-Sticks

I love putting these out as a healthy alternative to chips and dips at parties.

  • Crushed Nuts – Walnuts, Pecans, Pistachios and Almonds are my favorites
  • Raw Almond Butter

Directions

  1. Dunk Sliced apples into raw almond butter, then into crushed nuts.

cereal with caramelized apple

10.  Slimming Tea Oatmeal

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sprouted quinoa (I buy mine sprouted at Whole Foods and rinse thoroughly before cooking.)
  • 2 ¼ Cups Slimming Tea
  • 2 Diced Apples
  • 3 Tbsp Grade B Maple Syrup
  • ½ Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  2. In a small skillet, add the apples and ¼ Cup Tea and bring to a boil. Sprinkle with cinnamon and reduce the heat, simmering until crisp-tender. Add the syrup and vanilla.
  3. Serve Cinnamon Apple mixture over quinoa for a healthy, fat-burning oatmeal!

Do This Every Day To Fight Disease and Stay Slim!

Do This Every Day

This may be the world’s easiest way to fight off disease and stay slim!

How do you start your day?

Do you wake up and jump out of bed, ready to pour that first magical cup of tea into you favorite mug?

Maybe you look forward to walking the dog or taking the kids to the bus stop while clasping a hot tea or a refreshing iced Wu-Long.

Well, there’s a simple trick that I’ve been using for years that is one of the best, most healthy ways you can start your day.

Many say that the rituals you have in the morning set the tone for you day…

…As well as makeup the overall health of your body, and length of your life.

Here is the #1 ritual that I would start every single morning with: Wu-Long Tea with Lemon Zest.

I know – sounds really simple, right?

But it’s actually kinda complex… insomuch as it’s one of the most multi-faceted, powerful, positive and incredibly healthy ways you can kick off your day – every day.

Here are 7 reasons Wu-Long with Lemon is good for you:

1.  It Hydrates You

Hydration is a powerful way to keep your body functioning properly.

When you’re dehydrated you feel tired.

Plus, it leads to toxicity in the body.

Water flushes toxins from your body, making you feel much more energetic.

 

2.  It Keeps You “Regular”

Wu-Long hydrates you, which actually staves off constipation.

Wu-Long is a great way to stimulate your digestive system.

Lemons are also important for loosening up toxins in your digestive tract.

Lemons are also powerful for cleansing the liver.

 

3.  Wu-Long with Lemon Boosts Your Immune System

Lemons are known to be powerful anti-viral, immune-boosting, and anti-bacterial fruits.

In fact, the Ancient Egyptians used lemons to protect against poison.

(And some say pirates used them to guard against scurvy.  Arrr!)

Lemons are high in Vitamin C, especially in the ZEST.  That’s the delicious yellow outside of the lemon.

Some say the zest of a lemon has 100 TIMES the concentrated nutrients of the juice.

That’s right – don’t throw away your zest!

One really neat trick I use is to microplane lemon zest into ice cube trays to make zesty lemon-flavored ice cubes.  Mmmm!

Use a microplane to dash that zest in your Wu-Long tea.

The potassium is an added bonus because it gives your brain a boost and helps control blood pressure, too!

Lemons also have Vitamins B6 and B12.

 

4.  It’s Alkalyzing

Lemons are very alkalizing, which helps you fight disease.

They take on the opposite effect of their acidic nature when WITHIN our bodies.

Yeah, it’s kinda counter-intuitive!

An alkaline body is critical to fight diseases, like cancer.

Plus, Wu-Long is high in anti-oxidants that further work to detox, alkalize, and rid your body of diseases present or oncoming.

 

5.  It’s Good For Your Skin

You probably already know that Wu-Long fights acne and gives you healthy, glowing skin.

But did you know that Vitamin C is critical for getting rid of wrinkles?

Plus Vitamin C fights skin blemishes.

This is due to citric acid in lemons.

Plus, both Wu-Long and lemons help your body alkalize, which fights the bacteria that causes skin blemishes!

6.  Wu-Long with Lemon Zest Helps You Lose Weight

Wu-Long tea raises your energy expenditure throughout the entire day.

It also boosts your metabolism for 24 hours after you drink it, while oxidizing fat in the body.

Did you know that Lemons are also helpful for weight loss?

That’s because they’re rich in pectin fiber, which crushes cravings.

Moreover, the alkalizing effect of Wu-Long with lemon pushes your body to shed fat faster.

 

7.  It Makes You Smarter

You’re smart to consume Wu-Long with Lemons because of all these benefits.

But did you know that Wu-Long with Lemons also makes you smarter?

That’s right: L-Theanine found in Wu-Long helps generate dopamine and serotonin – neurotransmitters in the brain that make you feel good.

They ALSO make you more productive and boost your brain power.

Lemons have a calming effect that relieve fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and tension.

Moreover, lemon increases concentration and alertness.

Recap…

Whew!  Those are a LOT of benefits!

Here’s a quick recap of why you should start EVERY day with Wu-Long and Lemon Zest!

  1. Hydration
  2. Keeps you “regular”
  3. Boosts Immunity
  4. Alkalyzing
  5. Good for your skin
  6. Helps you lose weight
  7. Makes you smarter

The Easiest Way To Fight Over A Dozen Diseases? (while losing weight…)

tea

Here’s A Scary Thought…

Because of modern movements such as the Industrial Revolution and the shift from rural, farm and small community living to large cities; people have become completely separated from their food.

When is the last time you ate something that you picked, pruned, or nurtured from its natural state?

It’s actually a really scary thought!

We don’t see where our food comes from; who or what touches it; or even what it’s sprayed or infested with.

But, when you drink a cup of Okuma’s Wu-Long tea, you can close your eyes and feel gratitude: our Oolong is 100% pure tea with NO coloring, preservatives, flavors, or additives in any way, shape, or form!

Because we don’t add anything to our rare Oolong Tea, it is also some of the most powerful tea on the planet.

Wu-Long Fights Wrinkles… AND Cancer, Too?!

Tea has been used for thousands of years in a myriad of medicinal purposes.

It calms cold & flu symptoms, promotes healthy hair and skin, and soothes the soul.

But Okuma’s rare, 100% pure, medicinal grade Oolong goes far beyond these nice “comforts”.

All Oolong contains antioxidants which can help slow down the oxidation of cells.

This also slows down the onset of wrinkles on your skin… as well as the growth of cancer cells in your body!

And guess what?

The antioxidant power of Okuma’s Wu-Long tea is many times more powerful than most any other tea!

So don’t drink ‘watered’ down grocery store teas – drink the best, highest quality, rare, antioxidant-rich Wu-Long.  <–Stock up now for the New Year… Free Shipping for U.S. customers while supplies last!

Ways Wu-Long Fights Fat

Wu-Long Tea promotes healthy weight loss on many levels.

Namely, Oolong Tea contains high polyphenols.

Polyphenols activate enzymes in your body that can increase your metabolism.

They also work to hinder fat absorption in your body.

Oolong is also known to reduce Triglycerides in your body, further assisting in your weight loss efforts.

Wu-Long Fights Diabetes 

It also provides incredible benefits for people struggling with Type 2 Diabetes.

In fact, studies show that diabetic individuals who drink Oolong daily can have reduced plasma glucose concentrations.

The effect of Oolong tea in Diabetes patients is referred to as an antihypoglycemic effect.

Some studies have even asked patients to replace water consumption with Oolong Tea, which can show some pretty incredible results in the restoration of the body’s organ function… not to mention results in the waistline, as well!

Wu-Long Fights High Cholesterol & Heart Disease

Oolong tea helps to raise good cholesterol while lowering the bad.

One way it does this is by cleansing and removing cholesterol deposits and other plaques that may stick to your blood vessel walls.

As it cleanses your vessels and arteries, it lowers your cholesterol, which may help prevent the narrowing of your arterial walls, also known as arteriosclerosis.

This will, in turn, help prevent heart disease, stroke, and even high blood pressure.

Drinking just two cups a day of Okuma’s high-grade Oolong provides numerous heart benefits.

Some of The World’s Most Rare Tea…

Did you know that Okuma’s Wu-Long is actually grown high in a Chinese mountain town on a Unesco World Heritage site?

In fact, tea connoisseurs who have been raised among generations of tea experts take part in the inspection process and qualification of our tea.

Then we perform rigorous testing of polyphenol content, caffeine, and even the texture of our teas before we even think about putting the prestigious Okuma label on them.

So don’t waste time with tea that comes from pesticide-ridden farms, or tea that is riddled with fake ingredients to make it taste good.

Okuma’s Wu-Long is made with nothing but 100% Oolong.

New Years Day is coming in just 15 days.

Order your Wu-Long now in order to start drinking, and benefiting from the incredible weight loss and cholesterol-lowering benefits of Oolong by the New Year!  (Click here for your Free Shipping discount.)

 The Last Tea You’ll Ever Buy…I don’t know about you, but I have completely trashed what used to be an entire drawer devoted just to tea.

I had tons of cheap slimming tea, sleepy-time tea, or just plain soothing tea.

After tasting Okuma’s Wu-Long Tea, I don’t even consider wasting time with low-quality grocery store teas.

It’s true…

If you’re really looking to reap the benefits from Oolong Tea, only drink high-quality Wu-Long!  

With only two cups a day, it may be one of the world’s easiest ways to fight disease, while slimming your waistline!

Incredible Disease-Fighting Tea Tip [already in your kitchen]

????a

Okuma’s Wu-Long Tea is the world’s number one fatburning diet tea.

It is the easiest, most convenient way to boost your metabolism, burn more calories, and shed fat faster.

Wu-long is 100% natural Oolong Tea; no fillers, no preservatives, and NO chemicals you can’t pronounce.

And did you know that there are hundreds of ways to make Wu-Long tea even MORE effective?

I’ve had DOZENS of raving Wu-Long tea fans ask me, “Stephanie, what can I ADD to Wu-Long to give it more flavor, and an even MORE healthful boost?

My #1 go-to add-on:  LEMON

Wu-Long With Lemon Improves Liver Function

The key function of your liver is to regulate chemical levels in the blood.

The liver excretes a product called bile.

Bile helps to breakdown fats, preparing them for further digestion and absorption.

So add Lemon Juice to your Wu-Long tea to improve healthy liver function; lemon juice reinforces liver enzymes, normalizes levels of carbohydrates and increases the production of enzymes

Wu-Long is packed with antioxidants, and adding lemon juice will act as a liver detoxifier – revving up your fatburning potential.

Lemon Juice Enhances Urine production

Urinating is part of your body’s process to remove components cleaned by your kidneys and liver from your body.

Every year, people spend millions of dollars on natural diuretic products and teas.

But many of these products are filled with chemicals, preservatives, and artificial sweeteners.

Lemon Juice, however, acts as a natural diuretic.

Add lemon juice to your Wu-Long tea to increase your rate of urination, and thereby cleanse your body of unwanted toxins.

But it won’t dehydrate you!

That’s because lemon juice rehydrates your body and replacing fluids in your lymph system.

This Acidic Treat Actually Alkalizes Your Body?

Studies about disease prevention continually talk about alkalizing the body; or fighting acidity.

Here’s something fascinating: lemon, notwithstanding it’s acidity, actually makes your body more ALKALINE.

When your body is overly acidic, its systems can be weakened.

Alkalizing the body can help you resist disease.

Moreover, studies show that Oolong Tea is loaded with properties that restore your body’s organs, while slimming your waistline.

Lemon Juice Boosts Your Body’s Immune System

Lemon juice is packed with Vitamin C.

But if you really want to unlock the vitamin and mineral content in Vitamin C – grab a microplane and shave the skin into your tea.

The lemon rind is packed with exponentially more Vitamin C than in the juice, and it has even more of the sweet, zesty flavor.

Moreover, Vitamin C deactivates free radicals in your body that induce aging and promote disease.

Got acne?

Vitamin C is also great for the skin and will help in blasting those blemishes.

You’re WORTH The Very Best…

Okuma Nutritionals is devoted to bringing to light all the ways Nature has provided us with the tools to live well, fight disease, and feel great.

If you haven’t tried Wu-Long Tea because you’re accustomed to teas with artificial flavors – that’s totally OK – you CAN add *natural* flavors to your tea to make it taste exactly how you want.

Flavors that don’t come from a science experiment!

Go ahead…

Add real, natural, disease-fighting ingredients to your Wu-Long tea so that it is packed with flavor AND alkalizing properties.

Don’t settle for grocery-store teas that contain suspicious ingredients, pesticides, and chemicals.

Drink Wu-Long, Okuma’s 100% Oolong slimming tea; grown high on the mountains of the Fujian Province in China – where it’s potency is measured by master tea growers.

Pretty straight forward: Tea Burns Fat

Can it get much easier?

If you start looking into how tea burns fat you will see that it is not only one of the simplest weight loss methods available, it is also one of the healthiest.

Countless studies, like the one here, and here, and here, show that if you drink tea on a daily basis you can increase your energy expenditure (metabolism). When your metabolism is increased, you burn fat. It is as simple as that.

Your metabolism is boosted by the powerful, high-potency antioxidants in the tea, and not just caffeine. As a matter of fact, the tea contains only 1/3 the caffeine in a cup of regular coffee.

And not only do all those anti-oxidants help burn fat, but look at all the other amazing benefits you can get from them:

So, let’s add this up.

Drink tea + sit + relax + enjoy = weight loss + healthier body

Now that is some math I can get behind. Speaking of behind, how is yours lookin in the mirror today?

Uh, oh, better get Okuma.

Don’t be fooled by other Oolong teas, we have tested them against ours and not a single one has more potency than the original Wu Long Premium Slimming Tea.

Order yours today.

Green Tea Diet Exposed

The Green Tea Diet

You see it everywhere, websites and advertisements promising great results from a green tea diet.

There are countless options and varieties available.

But does it work? And how can you know what you’re really getting?

The Truth About Green Tea

The truth is that green tea is awesome.

It’s all natural, calorie free, and good for you.

Heck, it’s pretty much a superfood (as, I would argue, is all real tea).

Because green tea is so widely consumed, there has been a great deal of research into its health benefits.

This research has concluded that green tea is beneficial in a number of ways. It may have potential for fighting cancer and heart disease, lowering cholesterol, supporting immune function, and promoting cognitive health.

The component of green that is considered to be responsible for its weight loss potential is epigallocatechin gallate, commonly known as EGCG.

EGCG is a naturally occurring antioxidant that is most abundant in green tea.

There is some evidence that EGCG can support health, and may have some influence on weight loss, but only at a concentration that far exceeds what you get from drinking tea. In most tests, the EGCG was injected rather than consumed because it may not be absorbable through the digestive tract. The other problem is that no standardized dosage is known, because the research has varied so greatly.

This means that all of the green tea extract supplements available completely vary in dosage, and may not actually be effective.

Oolong Tea For Weight Loss

As opposed to green tea, oolong tea makes up only about 2% of tea consumed in the world. Because of this, there has been less research on oolong, but results have been even more promising.

As with green tea, oolong tea also offers a host of health benefits. It can support healthy teeth and bones, improve cardiovascular health, help to regulate blood sugar levels, and also may be beneficial for cancer prevention.

Similar to the green tea diet, the weight loss effects of oolong tea are because of its high concentration of polymerized polyphenols. Oolong tea has the highest concentration of these particular antioxidants.

This means that oolong tea is actually more beneficial for weight loss than green tea.

A 2001 study published in the Journal of Nutrition concluded that drinking regular amounts of oolong tea not only increases metabolic rate, but also increased fat oxidation in its subjects.This study showed a 12% increase in fat oxidation over a 24-hour period after drinking the tea, and an overall significant increase in energy expenditure (EE). This is higher than green tea which only showed a 4% increase.

Another study published in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine in 2009 reflected these results. When inducing a diet of oolong tea on overweight and obese subjects, researchers found that Oolong tea could decrease body fat content and reduce body weight through improving metabolism and that it might help to prevent obesity. In fact, they found that a total of 70% of the severely obese subjects showed a decrease of more than 1 kg in body weight, including 22% who lost more than 3 kg.

Conclusion

While more research is needed into the benefits of tea for weight loss, the most promising results are for oolong tea rather than green tea as a diet aid.

Regardless, there are many health benefits of tea, and it can be a great addition to any healthy diet plan.

What Is The Best Tea For Weight Loss?

Best Tea for Weight Loss

Image thanks to slightly everything

We all know that tea has an almost endless list of health benefits.

It is chock full of antioxidants, can contribute to cell protection, heart health, strong teeth, great skin, and so much more.

Not only that, but more and more research shows that tea can contribute to weight loss. Is there a better, all-natural, healthy, tasty, and slimming drink out there?

So, what is the best tea for weight loss?

There are three primary varieties of tea (black, oolong, and green), which are all derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis.  The difference in these varieties of teas comes from the fermentation process.

So the question is, which resulting tea boosts your metabolism the most?

In a Japanese research study they asked this question. They wanted to know which tea, green or oolong, would increase your metabolism more?

Here is what they found. Within 120 minutes of drinking the tea, green tea boosted metabolism by 4%. Oolong tea, on the other hand, boosted the test subjects metabolism by more than 10%. That is almost 3 times more efficient at increasing your metabolism.

All three varieties of tea are beneficial to health, but the fermentation process for oolong produces a tea that has the highest concentration of polymerized polyphenols – more than black or green tea – making pure oolong tea the best tea for weight loss.

How does it work?

There are three primary ways in which Wu-Long Oolong Tea works:

    1. It boosts your metabolism and prevents fat absorption through its natural ingredients. Studies suggest that the high concentration of polyphenols present in Okuma’s Wu-Long tea actually increases the amount of calories your body burns.
    2. Contribution to the Fat Burning Process: A process called thermogenesis in the human body is introduced with the intake of Wu-Long tea. It is a process, which aids faster fat oxidation. Compared to the regular varieties of tea, the Wu-Long Oolong tea is known to burn more than twice the total calories from the human body.
    3. Caffeine is also a component of Okuma’s Wu-Long tea – an ingredient that has been proven to increase metabolism. Okuma’s Wu-Long tea actually has about one third the amount of caffeine that a cup of coffee has, yet leads to increasing energy metabolism. Research suggests that this is due to the combination with polyphenols, which are at higher levels in Wu-Long tea than any other tea.

It is the combination of these three factors that make our premium oolong tea the very best tea for weight loss.

This study showed a 12% increase in fat oxidation over a 24-hour period after drinking the tea, and an overall significant increase in energy expenditure (EE).

Research has shown the high concentration of polyphenols in Wu-Long Weight Loss Tea contributes to fat oxidation, which equals weight loss, good health and the shedding of those unwanted pounds. Because of this, researchers have studied its affects on reducing obesity and diabetes, with favorable results, making Okuma’s weight loss tea a natural weight loss aid.
