Tea Talk And Others Related To Health

Just last week I posted an article about tea and the amazing results it gave me. HERE
I am just an ordinary person trying to make the most of what I have, everyday. Like I said, Tea has been part of my family's diet since childhood. My parents are health buffs. We've gone organic since I was a kid. The result: Not a single member of the family got hospitalized until now.
Tea is good with digestion. It burns fats. It will only go haywire if you don't eat and you take so much of it. Simply because there's nothing to burn. Anything taken less or too much is bad for one's health. Its a matter of balancing. Eating a well-balanced meal, simple exercises best support the tea issue.
With the Simple Exercises I mentioned, I am referring to the following:
-brisk walking
-regular chores around the house
-playing and running after your kid
-even errands
We all need movement.
A well-balanced meal comes with great moderation. Tea helped me acquire this. At the same time, you will still be healthy with all the vitamins, fiber and protein your body needs. Tea is good. And it really did made my tummy smaller in 3 days. Not as flat, but you know there's improvement. And I took it without even exercising. What more can it bring if you get some movement go with it.
Drink a hot cup of tea with meals. Some people tend to gulp cold beverages such as milk, soda and water with their meals. Having a hot cup of tea will encourage less liquid while your eating, which is much better for digestion. People tend to sip rather than gulp with a hot drink. Green Tea is very famous for weight loss results. source
I personally, don't take anything that is being advertised a lot or has become a trend (that includes organic). Red Rice is the only organic product I rely on at the moment. The rest I trust, are the ones my parents are using. And besides I can't go organic all the way, I have a growing kid who needs a balanced meal everyday. And tea is the one that's helping me balance my own in-take. The one I'm using right now is not available here in the Philippines, maybe at some health store. It's Bergamot. An herb, a type of English tea with a balanced aroma, colour and strength. But again, it's not the only one around. Dried jasmine i love too.
The Lifestyle?
A doctor told us that the diseases which we are making waves at the moment, are acquired thru the food we have been eating through the years. It's not the food we are taking- in now. Of course it's clear that if we continue this unhealthy lifestyle, it might just cut our lives short.
And to be honest, I can't say that I have a healthy lifestyle. Reality check: Eating in restaurants, especially fast food proves it. But nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that your lifestyle is right or wrong (xcept the experts). And Again..."Anything taken less or too much is bad for one's health".
