Grren tea #1Does Green Tea Help Weight Loss

Does green tea help weight loss? That’s the million dollar question in many conversations involving weight loss nowadays. I will hopefully answer this question for those who seek to know. Green Tea is by far one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. I’ll touch on that a little bit later on in this post. Let’s get to it.

Most people who are on a mission to lose weight and become healthier. Love to add beneficial foods/drinks to aid them with the process. It’s very common and I recommend you do it.

You can never become too healthy. Green tea is a very good drink to consume not only when you’re trying to lose weight but in general for your overall health.

Does green tea help weight loss? Yes, it does. It’s most effective in the area where fat resides the most.

That area being the stomach. This works in moderation you’re not just going to start losing pounds drinking green tea with no other physical effort put into play. You will find it to work best when you drink it while before or after your exercises.

Although studies have shown green tea to be effective in weight loss for some. Other studies have shown that it doesn’t even work for others. It’s leaning more towards the working side than the non-working side.

Everyone is different and you will know which side you’re on. Give it a legitimate time frame, though. Don’t start drinking green tea for a day or two and make your choice off that. That’s not a legitimate time frame.

I say give it 3 months solid and keep track of your progress if you have any at all. Then after that, you can be like well it’s not for me or yo could be like green tea is life. Either way, there is no negative that can come out of this as far as your health goes.

Your health is getting better each and every time you consume a cup of green tea. But on the other hand, as far as your results go. Does it work for you yes or no? That’s basically it. If green tea wasn’t effective for you. Then I highly suggest this.

Green tea

Green tea is one of the healthiest drinks you can consume on the planet as I mentioned earlier. It helps reduce the risk of some serious health issues like osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease just to name a few. It has antioxidants that can help prevent heart disease/strokes/heart attacks.

It also contains fluoride so it’s a great tooth strengthening consumable. If you start drinking green tea your dentist might give you the evil eye next time you go see him/her.

I personally drink green tea myself. The brand I drink is Bigelow Green Tea. It is my favorite of all the teas I’ve tried. Don’t get me wrong this is my personal opinion. 

It’s others out there that are just as good. Green tea has been one of my favorite consumables since I started drinking it back in 1992. Not just for weight loss benefits but for the overall feeling it gave me. You can’t ever go wrong with green tea

Does Drinking Green Tea Help Weight Loss-The Truth Revealed

I know most people don’t drink green tea or any other tea like substances because it doesn’t have the most pleasing taste. If you have a sweet tooth like I do.

You can add a small amount of natural organic honey To alter the taste a little. Do not add sugar. It will kill everything in the tea and what you would be drinking then is a cup of problems to come. No sugar natural honey only and only a small amount of that.

If you are seasoned with drinking green tea and you have one of that non-phase able spirits like a friend of mine. You can drink it straight out the pack with no problem. Then that’s more power to you. I’m not on that level yet I’ll get there one day, though.

Green tea has been around for ages. Check out this post I’ve written in more detail on the history of green tea.



So the million dollar question has been answered. Yes, green tea does help weight loss. But only if you’re contributing to doing other physical activities on the side.

Don’t go and order a hundred boxes of green tea and drink them all and expect to lose 90 pounds. It’s not going to happen. Although you will be internally cleansed and your dentist will hate you for cutting into their money.

But that’s beside the point. If you want to lose weight you must be committed and do it the right way. Don’t try to cheat the system for fast results. That’s a recipe for disaster/disappointment. I’ve seen it happen one too many times.

If you want to know a few key things you need to apply to your lifestyle to successfully lose weight. This may be ideal for you here.



  1. Hey William,
    You are absolutely right. Just drinking cups of green tea over a few days will not mean that you lose weight or burn fat, you will need to exercise as well to really see the benefits.

    I know of a person who was obese and regularly exercised to get healthier. Someone suggested green tea and there was an improvement in progress. The same amount of efforts brought even better results.

    Unfortunately, the taste is somewhat unpleasant the first time but over time you get used to it I guess. I tried a couple of varieties before settling for one with some basil leaves. I’ve also noticed that I am less hungry and tend to eat less after a cup of green tea.

  2. I’ve never thought of green tea in association with weight loss. Thanks for this useful information. You are right when you say we are all on a quest for better health and to lose some weight. (well almost all :)) Like you said in your article, I believe that weight loss will only be achieved when exercise is part of the plan. As I’ve never tried green tea, you’ve created an interest to give it a go and to see how it suppresses my appetite.

  3. Hi there,

    Great article, I’ve found it very interesting!
    I knew that green tea was good for the health but to be honest I’ve never drunk one, and yet I have plenty of green tea in my kitchen cupboard:(
    After reading your article I am totally convinced that green tea is really healthy. I will surely start to drink it, but before, I would like to know if there is a certain quantity not to exceed per day? I wouldn’t want to make any damage to my body:)
    What do you think about it? Could you suggest me, please?
    Thank you for this excellent post!

    1. Thank you for deciding to go full force with green tea. In response to your quantity question is no you cannot harm yourself from drinking something that is healthy and natural. All you would do is become healthier and get full off of green tea. There isn’t anything to be worried about. But if you are doing it for weight loss purposes. I would suggest you excercise along with drinking green tea

  4. I drink green tea all the time because I read that it is very healthy for you. It has helped me in losing weight and I couldn’t be happier. The other reason I drink green tea is to lose the belly fat. I hated carrying the extra weight around the middle. Green tea is a wonder and I would recommend to everyone.
