Does 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 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.
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.
