My weight problem began when the adolescence stage hit. At first, the unveiling of my curvaceous womanly figure excited me. However, I just couldn’t stop eating and growing. Before I knew it, I was chubby and overweight.
I hated myself, I cannot truly say that I enjoyed my teen years. I was always hiding away from people and shy to even live my life. I wished for invisibility and this sad phase of my life to come to an end.
During my 21st birthday, my dad surprised me with an all paid expense trip to my favorite continent in the world; Asia. Everyone who knows me knows just how much Asia fascinates me. I couldn’t wait to leave so I did. A week later.
When I landed in China, I was like a child in a candy store. After 15 minutes of roaming aimlessly, I decided to look around in a little rustic Chinese shop. An old lady emerged from a backroom and bowed for greetings. I am familiar with this culture so I did the same. I asked for a bottle of water but her eyes were fixated at my unsightly pot belly and acne infested skin. She pointed at my belly and asked if I wanted a remedy for it.
Anyone who knows about Asian countries knows that they are good at formulating traditional medicinal herbs that actually work. I nodded and convinced myself that I had nothing to lose. This turned out to be the best decisions of my life.
She emerged from the back room moments later with a tray and on it; a cup, some green powder, and an ancient Chinese kettle. She poured some of the greenish powder into the cup and poured in some warm water to it. A little stir blended the powder with the water completely and she instructed me to drink it. This is how I got hooked to Matcha Green Tea.
A week of faithfully drinking this solution, I noticed that my migraines had disappeared. I could breathe better and my constant hunger pangs were gone. I was no longer bloated and I generally felt good. My skin began to clear as well. The Matcha Green Tea had started transforming my life.
Its been a month now and I have lost a lot of weight that I am considering changing my wardrobe right here in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I cannot wait to get back to China and purchase more of this green tea.
Being healthy has greatly made my travel much better, possible and even, fun. I feel so good about myself and have made a lot of friends. More than I ever had back at home.
My vast research on Matcha Green Tea shows that it is the most powerful of all green teas in the market. It contains 137 more antioxidants than ordinary brewed green tea. It is packed with fiber, vitamins, chlorophyll, vitamin C, selenium, zinc, chromium and magnesium among many others.
It effectively speeds up your metabolism, burns calories, naturally detoxifies the body, prevents disease, lowers blood sugar and cholesterol, enhances moods and concentration. I also learned that a single cup of matcha green tea equals 10 cups of brewed green tea. It has also been scientifically and medically proven that Matcha green tea is able to combat and prevent various cancers. This is due to its high antioxidant levels.
Before returning to Beijing, China where I bought it, I still have a few more fun stops to make; Hanoi, Vietnam, Seminyak, Indonesia, Bangkok, Thailand, and Japan. I already have been to Taiwan, Singapore, Ubud, Bali, and Kathmandu Nepal.
I can’t wait to get back home and surprise my family with my new transformation. It feels like I have been reborn.
