Interestingly, January is National Hot Tea Month. January has traditionally been the month where people make New Year resolutions to diet and loose weight.

More eveidence is produced here on the benefits of drinking tea.

experienced a significant increase in the number of calories used in a 24-hour period — resulting in more fats being metabolized by the body for energy — than the men taking only the caffeine or the placebo. There was no difference in overall calorie or fat burning calories in the caffeine or placebo groups; only the tea group showed the weight loss results.

Julie Burchill hits back at Victoria’s Japanese Diet

Filed under: News — Sato @ 11:52 am

Julie Burchill of the Times Online has hit back at Victoria’s diet. This blog is not about celibrities and their diets, but I got a nice laugh at some of the things she writes about.

Check out this great writing:

“Be it the Frenchman with his legendary mistress or the Japanese man with his mythic geisha, being thin would appear to have done their wives little benefit on the home front. Add to this the recent survey claiming that men with thin partners are more likely to cheat on them, and ó oops, Posh did it again!

And Iím not being racist here, but who on earth would want to look like a Japanese woman? Iíve thought for a long time that women of Chinese origin are generally the most beautiful women in the world, and that women of Japanese origin ó well, arenít.”
