Green Tea - Why It Is Beneficial While On The Omad Diet

Green tea was the game changer for me...but not at first. The problem was that hot green tea made me feel sick on empty stomach, so black coffee was my only option even though I'd rather not. It was when I discovered cold brewing that I was able to drink green tea and ditch the coffee. What I do is fill my half gallon bpa free water bottle with filtered water then, chuck in a few green tea bags and leave it over night ready for the day ahead. The first thing I noticed was my energy went through the roof, the coffee seemed to spike energy then fade away. I felt well hydrated all the time, not like coffee which is dehydrating. I noticed I was losing more weight too. Green tea goes so well with fasting, the caffine is low and the compounds in green tea fire the metabolism whilst attacking the bad fat.

Here is a great article on the details of green tea with fasting:

Welcome to the OMAD forum, @Gomad ! You have some interesting information to share with us, andI hope that you will share even more because it looks like you have already been reading about OMAD and understand quite well what helps us to lose weight this way.
There is also a Facebook page, if you like social media. Go to the main page of this website, and scroll down and you will see the icons for social media.

I don’t think that I have tried a cold brew green tea, but I am guessing that it would be similar to what we call “sun tea” here. Sun tea is usually made during the summer when people are dinking iced teas, and it is made by putting the teabags in a gallon jr and then leaving it to sit in the sun all day, which soaks out the flavor of the tea, but does not give it as much bitterness.
I have seen cold brewed coffee that is left overnight I basically the same way but I have never tried that to see how well I like it.

Thanks @Happyflowerlady I shall certainly share what I know, which isn't much really, just trail and error and learning the pitfalls along the way. I feel OMAD is mostly a self discovery, what works for one may not work for another, it is all about listening to your body. I found that after a while, your body almost makes food choices for you, it tells you it now craves healthy stuff, or even things you never even tried. The greatest benefit I received was mental clarity which rid me of depression and helped greatly in my spiritual life.

As to cold brewed green tea, yes much like you described, just put green tea in the water and let it leak into the water, only in this case, over night. Not sure how green tea would hold up in the sun all day, black teas are a little more robust. Cold brew green tea tastes a lot better, none of the bitterness you can get with green tea. And it is amazing for keeping hunger pangs at bay, even better than black coffee, at least in my experience that is.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome again, I shall enjoy looking through the forum. It is nice to see the OMAD revolution picking up, soon the world will know the lies we have been fed by big pharma and others, nature already has all the cures and means to living healthy fulfilling life's. Of course, they cannot sell you that, so it is hidden. Unfortunately, illness and death is business.
