Hey Mike, firstly, many thanks for the awesome article, just what I
need to help me get rid of that really stubborn mid-section. I have a
question regarding the Green Tea Extract you recommend though. I live in
the UK and although the one you recommend is available on Amazon UK I’ll have to wait for it to be shipped from the USA – no problem. However, in the meantime, I’m looking for an alternative and notice the same brand (NOW) do an
EGCg Green Tea Extract which has 80% Catechins, what’s the difference
between this one and the one you recommend? With 40% more Catechins
would the EGCg be a better option? Thanks in advance 🙂
