Green tea is your metabolism booster, fat burning, powerful antioxidant super drink. It’s an acquired taste, but if you want to lose weight and burn calories fast, only drink this variety of tea.
Pure Green Tea: Purchase the pure stuff that has the highest content of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and catechins. These ingredients are powerful antioxidants and will help you lose weight by burning calories faster.
In the Raw: Buy the tea, raw. Flavored green teas have too much sugar, artificial preservatives and less antioxidants. You want to drink green tea in its purest form.
Trainer’s Tip: Fitness experts recommend drinking one cup of green tea an hour before working out to kick start your metabolism. Basically, this will make your workout more effective and will help you burn fat faster.
Green Tea Extract: Add green tea extract to your water bottle. This will maximize your physical activity and help you lose the weight around the middle. I’ll be honest with you, the extract doesn’t taste too good but it definitely works.
Brew it Right! Pour hot water directly over the bag so the tiny particles of tea break loose. Those little leaves will get into your bloodstream breaking away toxins and filtering the blood.
Minimum 3 Cups: Drink at least three cups of the bat-blasting drink a day, especially if you have a desk job. Green tea alone won’t help you lose weight, but it will aid your weight loss efforts effectively.
