View Full Version : Yerba Mate while Bulking question

11-15-2008, 07:35 PM
I feel rather dumb for asking, but I was drinking yerba mate during my cut and it seemed to help control my bloating, and worked kinda like a diuretic. I am currently bulking, and would like to start drinking the yerba at night before bed again to help keep me from looking inflated while i'm eating more carbs. My only concern is that its going to burn up the extra calories i'm trying to get in to gain mass. Do you think the metabolic effect of the tea is even strong even to hinder my gains? I usually also drink milk before bed or have some cottage cheese for the casein.

Doubtful. If anything, the effect on your sleep would be the thing to worry about.
