Question Anyone tried Te-Lite?

These are patches and powdered drink mixes of super concentrated green tea. I ordered a one week trial and wondered if anyone else had tried this.

Well, if it's a 'diet patch' then fuggetaboutit.

It never fails to amaze me - it's easy enough to just buy some green tea (even the good stuff doesn't cost all that much) brew a cup and drink it...and yet the diet product marketers will find a way to make that sound like it 'just isn't enough'.

I haven't seen anything that says that 'diet patches' are effective - in fact, there are a lot of diet patch scams, some of which you can read about at this link .

I dunno...I guess people know that patches work with people trying to stop smoking, so they figure that a 'diet patch' would work...

Meanwhile - check out this website:

And, whenever there is a substance which, in its natural state, might do some good, manufacturers pack products with derivatives which almost NEVER have the essential ingredients that make the original work in the first place.
