Replace Sugary Drinks with Green Tea to Lose Weight
Tea continues to be the second most consumed drink throughout the world today, and it has the powerful to calm your nerves, give you a pick-me-up, warm you up, cool you down, and even help you lose weight. If you’re looking for a delicious drink that has health benefits and the power to help you lose those extra pounds, green tea is an excellent choice. Stop drinking those sugary drinks and add green tea to your diet to boost your weight loss efforts.
While many other types of teas have health benefits, it’s green tea that is especially helpful in helping you shed unwanted pounds. Green tea is high in caffeine, which may aid in weight loss. However, the tea also contains catechins, which are antioxidants that may also contribute to weight loss. Studies have shown that in mice, green tea helped obese mice lose weight and normal weight mice didn’t become fat.
What makes green tea different in taste, smell, color, and caffeine content? The tea leaves are processed differently. In fact, drinking green tea has been found to be more beneficial than black tea in recent studies. Of course, while consuming green tea is a great way to lose some weight, you don’t want to drink too much of it. About 2-3 cups of green tea per day is enough to enjoy the weight loss benefits. Drinking too much green tea could result in an overabundance of caffeine, which could cause insomnia, irritability, digestive issues, and anxiety.
Of course, if you’re going to replace sugary drinks with green tea to boost your weight loss, make sure you’re not adding a lot of sugar or a lot of cream to your tea. Try drinking your tea plain or with just a bit of honey to avoid adding unwanted calories to this healthy drink.
