Freelancing

I have been having quite a bit of constant freelancing projects for the past month or so.

One of them "Woodward-partners" is completed with Regine
http://www.woodward-partners.com/dev (Note it is under some modification by another developer).

The second one is Dell-Privilege. But I stop working halfway due to some poor project management by the Business Analyst
http://www.dell-privilege.com/

Just another excuse to stay together.

Why Green Tea Helps to Lose Weight

Recent studies show that green tea can help greatly in the process of losing weight. It does it by increasing the body's metabolism. If consumed regularly, it can help you burn as much as eighty calories extra. In a year, that’s about 8 pounds; you lose that much just by drinking, even without diet and exercise.

To further enlighten you as to how green tea works, read on below:

Green tea slows down the absorption of fats and regulates glucose. The same substance, cathechin polyphenol, restrains the transition of glucose into fats. By doing that, experts believe that green tea is an effective glucose regulator. It effectively prevents insulin spikes and slows the rise of blood sugar after every meal. Insulin, as specialists agreed upon, promotes the storage of fats as it deals with the body’s blood sugar.
