This isn't the first time that tea has been found to be beneficial for losing weight. The paper also cited a meta-analysis from 2009 that showed people who consumed green tea and caffeine while on their normal diet lost more weight over 12 weeks; and a meta-analysis from 2011 showed that catechin-rich teas could up your caloric expenditure by about 100 calories over 24 hours.

When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
