Sup yourself slim
If you want to lose weight, copy celebrity tea drinker Victoria Beckham. She’s a fan of Pu-Erh, a green tea that has been used in the East as a digestive aid for centuries. The specially fermented tea helps to break down oily and fatty foods and is often served with Chinese dim sum to cleanse the stomach.
Drinking Pu-Erh could even be as good as a trip to the gym. The leaves of the tea are thermogenic, which means it raises the metabolism and burns more calories. Have a cup with every meal.
