Can green tea help you lose weight?

Of course, green tea is not a magic pill. To reach and maintain a healthy weight you must make changes to your diet beyond just adding tea.

As we age, our metabolism naturally slows down, so anything that can help us improve it is welcome, indeed. By incorporating green tea to increase our metabolism and weight bearing exercise to compensate for the muscle loss that we also experience as we age, we can keep ahead of those pound that normally pile on as we get older.

 

Over time, no doubt there will be more studies that help us pinpoint exactly how green tea promotes thermogenesis and how we can harness its power to help with our growing obesity problem. But, in the meantime, green tea is a wise addition to your diet for many reasons.

 

Green te’s anti-oxidants have also been shown to prevent diseases, including high cholesterol, heart disease and high blood pressure. All of these diseases are ones that plague the overweight. So, drinking green tea may help your fight to stay healthy by helping you lose the weight but also by getting a jump start on minimizing weight related medical conditions.

 

Try adding green tea to your diet to help lose pounds naturally and reduce any weight related health concerns that have shown up along with those extra pounds. Even though more research is needed, you can be assured that you’re doing something positive for your overall health and quite possibly you’ll notice it in your waistline as well. (SOURCE: PcQL)
