    This is terrific information! I just began listening after hearing you on The Fat Burning Man Podcast. I am very interested in trying your recommendations, but this is totally new to me. Do you have more information/resources for buying and using the teas you recommend?

    Excellent, I will have to look into some of these that I did not know! How about coffee, some people claim that it can also help with fitness and weight loss, what do you think?
