I don't drink it at dinner because I have problems with insomnia anyways. In the back of the book (I just found this the other week!) Dr. Mike also says to drink your tea or coffee at least an hour before you eat because it can hinder iron absorption. If you think the caffeine may be a problem I would get decaffeinated green tea. Lipton, Bigelow, Tetley, Celestial Seasonings----they all make the decaf version. Hope that helps!

"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat." -Jimmy Peña
Does everyone drink the green tea before meals? I havn't been sleeping well the last couple of nights. I usually avoid caffeine after noon....so I am wondering if the dinner caffeine is the culprit? In saying this, I have really been enjoying the freshness of the green tea and I think it does curb my appetite.
