Will using de-caffinated green tea be less effective than the ones with caffeine?

I ask because caffeine can aid fat loss/metabolism. I have acess to Life Extension de-caffinated.

I fear they'll both be as ineffective as each other. Have a black coffee instead.

Stole the words out of my mouth. 
 
Judging from the other post OP, you seem desperate to find that magic pill.  Good luck.

No, not desperate, just after a little something extra. Obviously I'm aware diet/cardio need to be in check first.

I tell you what I feel has made quite a difference to me when trying to lose weight.   Supplementing with BCAAs.  I used to shout from the tree tops what a waste of money it is, but then I used it properly for a 3 month period and I really think it helped with minimising fatigue and muscle loss.   Which obviously meant I could train longer and harder.

But don't make the mistake I did mate.  Use it properly and for an extended period.

Ok. How do they help loose weight (fat) though? I thought they were more for recovery? I will be using My Proteins unflavoured mixed in with orange juice

Effective for what? 
 
weight loss, its the caffeine that helps in that respect its still good for anti oxidants but reading the thread im guessing its for weight loss you mean.

Yes weight loss. As a matter of interest, will DNP burn muscle as well? (I'm not thinking of using it, just curious)

Probably will if you're not on anabolics. Forget the DNP, you want decaf green tea, I assume because you don't want the side effects from caffeine. Well comparing the downsides of caffeine to the downsides of DNP is like comparing a needle prick to a crowbar in the face.

Good. To the OP. Don't even think of asking in the same sentence.

For fat loss most of the supplements make a very, very small difference. Some fat loss supplements help surpress appetite which can be useful for fat loss.For general health green tea is useful. Your better off fine tuning your diet and ensuring you track everything, that can make a big difference.

green tea varies in caffiene by blend and by brand, and how long you leave the bag in. Think 15-45mg per cup.
 
None of that is going to help you lose fat. Drink tea to enjoy it

From green tea to dnp in under one page, wow.

The small amount of caffeine in green tea should make this thread moot.

What one you looking at that has more than 50mg per serving?

Dunno about decaf green tea. Would there be any point?

I enjoy green tea because of the health benefits. Apart from the alleged weight loss, it does help in bringing up the gunge out of the throat a lot.

I usually have green tea (with lemon) and an Earl Grey tea bag in the same mug with a splash of skimmed milk. Delicious.
