Green Tea + Coffee = Fatburner?

Ok, its very slow at work today, that’s why I'm gazing gormlessly outside and thinking of 'What ifs', but does anyone know if having a few cups of green tea with say 2 spoonfuls of coffee in it every day would have a similar effect to a fat-burner, like SAN Tight, where the main ingredients are green tea extract and caffeine? Or would I need too many cups of this concoction to replicate the effects of a fat-burning supplement? Thoughts? Back to out-of-window-gazing...

    it depends on what the strengths of your products are. ie how much caffine is in the coffe etc. i dont know how much the average cup of coffee has, i dont drink any hot drinks.

    you will certainly be getting some benifit imo.

    i have heard it mentioned that the average cup of coffee has about 100mg of the good stuff.

    hello, I have used just caffine as a fat burner in the past and for me the doses needed to make progress were far too high to tolerate for long.I feel its the same with caffine as a duretic.250 mgs 3 times a day, plus the odd coffee just made me feel sick.

    I've drunk a couple of cups of green tea per day for a while for general health purposes, I'd just noticed that SAN Tight (good product btw) was mostly Green Tea extract and caffeine so wondered if I could save myself a bit of cash. I tried a cup of green tea with 2 spoonfuls of coffee though today and it's pretty stinking! If you were skint though I reckon a few cups of each per day would be better than nothing if you were looking for a fatburner.
