Yesterday, I took my family to see the movie, The Karate Kid, starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith (Will Smith's son). Filmed in Beijing, China. Wt was a captivating movie, and my kids loved it! (I was expecting them to “Kung Fu” each other afterward, but, thankfully, nobody got hurt 🙂

There's something about China that inspires me and saddens me at the same time.

The Chinese culture is based on principles of natural health and overall balance. Unlike America, with all our fast food restaurants and an eagerness to medicate every symptom of disease.

That's why I want to talk about Wu Long Tea again.

Last week I shared with you a natural way to burn calories and melt body fat by adding a special Oolong tea to your diet.

This type of tea has been used for hundreds of years in China, for weight loss and overall natural health.

While 99% of our subscriber response was overwhelmingly positive,  we did have a couple readers who asked if Oolong tea really worked, or if it was a scam  after finding some negative publicity on the internet. So, I emailed the company – and I'd like to share their response with you:

hi.  thanks for your email.  yes, there are some that feel that oolong and green tea does not work.  though this is their belief, there is clinical evidence that supports oolong tea and weight loss.

if you eat big macs, smoke, and sit on your tail..oolong is not going to work for you.

oolong tea combined with a balanced diet and exercise, will result in significant weight loss…roughly 2% of body mass per

this is supported by the research below and the hundreds of emails we've received from satisfied customers.  even (friend)'s staff has had good results from the product.


Wu Long Tea For Weight Loss: Are You Skeptical?

Skepticism is only natural. Please take a look at a couple of studies.

Researchers from Japan’s Ehime University published in the International Journal of Obesity demonstrated that the anti-obesity action of Wu Long Tea on nonadrenaline-induced lipolysis in adipose tissue and the inhibitory action of some other substance in Wu Long Tea on pancreatic lipase activity suggest that Wu Long Tea may be a safe, effective treatment of obesity caused by high fat diets.

In a study conducted by researchers for the Journal of Nutrition, findings suggest that Wu Long Tea may promote weight loss through increasing Energy Expenditure (EE). EE was measured by indirect calorimetry on randomized men, ages 25-60, in a cross-over design study. It was found that EE significantly increased by 3.9 % for participants taking the full-strength tea. Addition

ally, fat oxidation (burning) was significantly higher (12%) in subjects consuming Wu Long Tea.

The National Library of Medicine in conjunction with the National Institute of Health investigated the effects of Wu Long tea catechins on body fat reduction in a 12-week, double-blind study. The results showed that body weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), waist circumference, body fat mass and subcutaneous fat were significantly lower in the premium tea group than in the control.

I'm not sure if drinking Wu Long Tea will turn you into a Karate Kid Kung Fu Master (LOL), but the research does show that drinking it will help you burn body fat quickly.

So, you've got 2 choices:

1) Don't drink Wu Long Tea, keep eating Big Macs, and continue to tolerate your unhealthy, overweight body you see in the mirror every day.


2) Choose to be healthy! Say with me, out loud, right now, “I'M SICK AND TIRED OF BEING FAT AND I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!” Choose right now to take control of yourself and command your body to transform from fat to thin, by eating healthier, exercising daily (walking and stretching is a great start!), and drinking Wu Long Tea.

Here's where you can get your tea:

Yours for excellent balance, self-control, and natural health,

P.S. Think about how good you're going to feel every day when you look in the mirror and see a healthy, thin, transformed body, thanks to YOUR decision right now!!!
