Recently, I went to the pharmacy in Japan and was overwhelmed by the choices of slimming teas and beauty teas which claim that by drinking them, you will lose weight and become more beautiful. Of course, like any other woman (and who says men don’t feel the same way too?), I would love to have a fabulous body and look gorgeous just by drinking a massive amount of tea a day. So I decided to put this to the test.

Du-Zhong tea, which can be found at most pharmacies in Japan, is a kind of green-tea which is made in Japan but originally came from China. Du-Zhong grows in the cold weather and so part of its appeal is that “while the other plans are dying, Du-Zhong tea grows so why not absorb its vitality into our bodies?”

The main components of this tea that speed up weight loss are catechins and Geniposhid acid. Catechins are a component of all green teas and promote fat metabolism and control the fat levels in the body. The Geniposhid acid enhances our blood vessels. I wasn’t exactly sure how enhancing my blood vessels was related to weight loss but I wasn’t going to argue with anyone about it.

Not only did Du-Zhong claim that I would lose weight, it also claimed that the tea would prevent aging, viruses, allergies, and even hangovers! This was exactly what I had been looking for all along, a miracle drink that would fix everything.

All that was needed was to drink 2L a day, the pharmacist explained to me. If I followed this one rule, I would be slim in two weeks.

So I started drinking Du-Zhong tea religiously, 2L each day. I counted my calories each day to make sure that they remained the same as before. Two weeks later, I was exactly the same size. Du-Zhong had done nothing for me.

So, I consulted a Japanese friend who was trying a different product, a carb-blocker pill which you dissolve into water and drink before every meal. She claimed the pill was all natural and was made from herbs.

“Are there any side effects?” I asked, suspicious.

“Just diarrhea,” she answered simply, shrugging her shoulders.

I decided in the end, it just wasn’t worth it.

A person begins to learn as soon as he realizes his own short comings and starts accepting the flaws in him. Generating the knowledge of our own ignorance is the doorstep to the temple of wisdom and understanding.

actually any tea will help with that....if it is drank quickly enough it will become a laxative and will make you lose weight...

Plastic surgery is meant to change your life for the better. Plastic surgery is not all about beauty and no heart like

all the commercials make it sound. It merely advocates finding inner peace by changing that part of their body that denies

you happiness. its very useful to look better.
