Have you all heard about the benefits of tea? It appears that not only tea has health and metabolism benefits, but also helps to lose weight due to its diet effect, discusses the book by mark Ukra The Ultimate Tea Diet.
The Ultimate Tea Diet book shows tea's unique weight-loss potential in a straightforward plan for losing weight in a safe and healthy way. Simply find a tea you love, drink it all day, follow an easy food plan, and see the pounds fall off.
Not only tea can be an ultimate diet plan, but also drinking tea helps to boost the immune system, lower blood sugar and cholesterol, prevent cavities and tooth decay and more interestingly slow the aging process.
While dieting on tea another benefit of this ultiamte drink is that it helps to decrease high blood pressure, prevent arthritis, sharpen mental focus and concentration, reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease and cancer.
While The Ultimate Tea Diet book encourages to follow a simpler food diet the book description says not to worry about being hungry. The food plan of the Ultimate Diet includes tasty tea-based meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as tempting choices for midday snacks and sweet treats. "All are made deliciously with tea so not only is your food incredibly flavorful, but you're also getting the health and weight-loss benefits in every single bite you enjoy," continues the description.
Here is a sample recipe from The Ultimate Tea Diet, reprinted from Amazon.com where the book is on sale.
Rosemary Orange Tea Chicken • 1/4 cup olive oil • 2 oranges • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon of dried, plus fresh sprigs for garnish • 1/4 teaspoon finely ground green tea • 1-1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Mix together the olive oil, juice of 1-1/2 oranges (set aside the other half0, pepper, salt, chopped rosemary, and dry tea. Pour this marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a grill pan or barbecue until hot. Remove chicken from the bag, discarding the remaining marinade, and grill until browned on both sides. Thinly slice the remaining orange half and serve with the chicken. Decorate with a sprig of rosemary.

An interesting comment has been written by the Coulinary Tourist in the same place while reviewing The Ultimate Tea Diet.
"On January 1, I cozied up with my copy of The Ultimate Tea Diet, steaming mug of coffee in hand, and by page eleven I was firing up the teakettle.
"Now rise, and show your strength," says Dr. Tea, quoting from Jerome K. Jerome (Three Men in a Boat). "Be eloquent, and deep, and tender; see, with a clear eye, into Nature, and into life: spread your white wings of quivering thought, and soar, a god-like spirit, over the whirling world beneath you, up through long lanes of flaming stars to the gates of eternity."

The publisher is Collins (December 26, 2007). The book is in English and the ISBN number is 10: 0061441759.
