GREEN TEA - is your ARSE supposed to FALL OUT?!?
34

LaurieFairyCake · 06/07/2017 15:03

Thanks to some amazing weight loss story of some woman who lost 8 stone I thought I'd drink some green tea

My arse has fallen out and I've only had one cup Hmm

I've just made a second (she drank litres of the stuff) - will it stop ???

Who else drinks green tea?

I drink green tea all the time. My arse hasn't fallen out, yet.

It triggers my migraines something chronic.

Is the potential weight loss from an anecdotal article that sounds too good to be true (and is therefore probably bolleaux) worth diarrhoea and the potential side effects of that (physical and social)?

Coincidence for you maybe?

I don't tend to stick to any particular brand, although Twinings Cherry Bakewell and their Salted Caramel are my favourites.

The only change is the tea, my arse is always normal (I go as soon as I get up in the morning and that's it)

I drank the tea at lunchtime and then went to the loo, and then again two hours later.

I also feel weirdly energetic - I NEVER feel energetic. Does it give you energy?

Green tea has LOADS of caffeine. That would explain the buzzing and also probably the arse falling out.

I love green tea, I only drink one brand though (Clearspring) as that's the one that I like best. I've never had an arse problem with it. It does have caffeine, but less than regular tea or coffee (which I also drink a lot of).

Green tea is lower in caffeine than black tea and much lower than coffee, so I doubt it's the caffeine unless you're not used to having caffeine at all. I drink green tea quite a lot. I don't think it has any effect on my weight, and my arse has never remotely fallen out. Grin

I'm bunged up so I could do with a bit of arse falling out-ness. I may have to have a trip to Asda.

And can you seriously get Cherry Bakewell green tea?!

I've never heard of dandelion tea company. But if your green tea does in fact have dandelions in it (rather than just tea), a quick google shows that dandelions are commonly used as a laxative...

Sorry Eolian I meant Dragonfly (god knows where I got dandelion from!)

It's this one. I have no problem with caffeine, I drink a triple espresso in the morning with a little hot water and then no more apart from normal tea.

Maybe it's the antioxidants and my body is getting rid of them

I love green tea. I drink the Pukka Supreme Matcha one.

Doesn't make me shit through the eye of a needle, but if something is brewing a big cup can help it along Grin

Maybe dragonfly brand is more kwality than twinings and that's what caused the arse event? I normally would have twinings and no probs, but equally it doesn't cause me to lose 8 stone so maybe the shits are a sign it is potent and working? {adds gragonfly tea to shopping list}

Is this the same as slim tea or what ever it's called from Holland and Barrett?

My mum swears green tea keeps you regular. I do drink it sometimes though and never really noticed it. Dragonfly make lovely teas - my favourite was the spiced rooibos but all my local shops stopped selling it.

Maybe it's the toasted brown rice?

Slimatea Gaggiagirl. I drank that for a few days but it scared me so I gave up! I also read something about reliance on aids to move the bowels potentially leading to fecal incontinence in later life Shock, so that did it for me!
