Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

The Benefits of Green Tea!

Green tea is an antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory and an anti-microbial that can also assist with weight loss. It is a natural source of caffeine which increases the metabolism and helps burn fat and calories.

Green tea is now my tea of choice. I generally drink hot green tea in the morning and after dinner and make sweetened green iced tea (with Equal) in a pitcher to drink as a cold beverage throughout the day. My favorite tea bags to use are Celestial Seasoning Authentic Green Tea.

Green tea can now be found in everything from supplements to food products to beauty products! Some of my favorite items with green tea include:
  •  Kozy Shack Simply Well Green Tea Chai Pudding cups 
  • Trader Joe’s green tea mints (3 mints= 1 cup of green tea)
  • Sencha Green Tea Mints (3 mints= 1 cup of green tea)

 So, if you haven’t already, try green tea!
