Green Tea and Obesity

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) categorizes obesity as more than a human condition; the CDCP deems obesity as a disease that deteriorates our quality of life and increases the risk of many chronic diseases and premature death. Obesity in the US has become so serious that in 2001 and 2007 the CDCP issued a call-to-action urging all 50 states to bring the rate of obesity of their population down by 15%. But so far, no state has yet to meet such a goal. To date, obesity continues to plague the lives of many Americans with a record-high climbing rate since 2007.

The Cause of Obesity
Obesity is directly related to our diet and our lifestyle. A diet of fast foods and foods high in fat, together with a lifestyle of inactivity can lower our body's metabolic rate and increase the formation of cholesterol and fat in our body. It is true, we are what we eat. So you ask, "What has obesity got to do with me?" Believe it or not, we are all equally responsible in contributing to the trend of obesity so prevalent in our community, be it directly or indirectly.

Let's ask ourselves these questions:
  1. Am I feeding my family a balance diet?
  2. Do I sometimes think it is okay to let my children eat fast or junk foods as snacks?
  3. Do I sometimes let my busy schedule get in the way of providing my family with a balanced diet and sufficient physical activities?
  4. Have I educated my family and loved ones about the dangers and risks of obesity?
  5. Am I aware of how food directly affects our body? Am I aware of the amount of sugars that comes with popular brands of seemingly healthy foods, such as cereals, yogurts, milk, etc.?
  6. And last but not least, am I a compromiser? Am I setting a good example for my family and friends?

The Cost of Obesity
The rise of obesity affects our economy and the way we spend. You may not realize this, but studies show that the problem of obesity has a direct impact on the U.S. health care system. We're talking about medical costs. According to a study published by the CDCP, medical costs associated with obesity may include preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services. Indirect costs include the value of income lost from decreased productivity, restricted activity, absenteeism, and bed days. And here's the kicker: Obesity is costing Americans the value of future income lost by premature death! 

The Green Tea Solution
Green Tea is the least produced form of tea in the world today. Out of the 2.5 million of dried tea produced annually, only 20% of it is green tea. Yet, green tea remains the tea that is richest in antioxidants in the form of polyphenols and epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC). These nutritional elements serve as catalysts to effective weight loss.

According to a study by the University of Chicago's Tang Center for Herbal Medicine, green tea contains properties that control appetites and  body weight, reducing body weight by 21%. In a 1999 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Journal, men who took daily 3 cups of green tea were able to burn 80 more calories per day, which adds up to a 20,200 calories in a year. This, according to the study, translates to a loss of 8 pounds in one single year without making any lifestyle or diet changes! 8 pounds of weight loss per year may not be a lot, but imagine how much more weight you can lose if you take additional servings of green tea with exercise and a healthy lifestyle! The possibility is endless. What's more, in a 2005 study published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism, green tea can actually reverse established obesity!
