No, but I also like green tea. I often brew it, add a little sugar or Truvia and have iced tea. I can tell it has a little caffeine.
I wouln't recommend caffeine in supplement form.

I drink green tea all the time because I like the taste. I have lost 123lbs so far but I think the loss is from the 1200 calorie balanced diet and not the green tea. I guess if I drink the tea leaves it adds to my fibre total. (how much fibre in a tea bag?) At the end of the day whatever works for you go for it. Lemon water is good too. Karl

If I want a caffeine hit I'll have some coffee, not a green pill. I looked up the ingredients to one well-known green tea supplement made by a natural health remedy company and it contains "Maltodextrin, Green Tea Extract, Capsule Shell (Gelatine), Bulking Agent (Dicalcium Phosphate), Anti-Caking Agents (Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid)." Gross.
I am not one to believe all the hype around green tea being a "fat burner" and those informercials that say "lose 20 lbs in a month by taking this pill." I simply take a green tea pill once a day before I go to the gym to get the extra boost of energy. Does anyone else do this? Have anyone else seen results by doing this?
