How healthy is green tea for you when attempting to quit soda and coffee?

I’ve currently revamped my whole lifestyle when I deployed to Afghanistan with the Army. I’ve got nothing to do here, so i’m focusing more on my health and fitness while I am here. Besides my new work out regimen, i’m trying to stop drinking soda, coffee and anything with sugar. So my question is, is Green Tea a healthy choice or should I just continue drinking water only?

    green tea is healthy but you still want water as well. the only negative thing i’ve seen with green tea is that it can be bad for high blood pressure. But if you don’t have a HBP problem you’re ok.

    Green tea is great! Good for blood purification and full of antioxidants. Drink water too. Both are great for keeping the kidneys well flushed and liver function on track.

    Good on you, keep up the good work soldier.

    The Miracle of Green Tea

    “Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.” (Ancient Chinese Proverb)

    Is any other food or drink reported to have as many health benefits as green tea? The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. In her book Green Tea: The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life, Nadine Taylor states that green tea has been used as a medicine in China for at least 4,000 years.

    Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

    Nothing in excess is good, not even water. Drink in moderation for the good ones and less for the less healthy ones. Depriving yourself only make you crave for it more and make your system out of tune.
