This week I’ve been living the endless tea time as I test to see if the benefits of green tea can impact you in a week long timeline.
To see how yesterday went, check out day 3 in the benefits of green tea experiment.
The Benefits of Green Tea Day 4
Well, I haven’t dealt with the weight loss part of this experiment yet, I woke up this morning feeling like I had definitely dropped some weight. Then, today I had some cake since my birthday is tomorrow. This is why I wait to weigh myself until the end of the week.
Concentration wise, I still feel a bit better, but I can’t attribute a major impact to the consumption of green tea yet.
Blood pressure has been the surprising standout. In the range of data I’ve collected so far, the diastolic (the bottom number) numbers have stayed about the same (plus or minus 2 points from the initial measurement). However, the systolic numbers have been 4-6 points lower than the initial measurement. This is still within the margin of error, but it’s a positive trend. With any luck we’ll see that decrease staying consistent or even improving by the end of the experiment.
