How Does Green Tea Help You Lose Weight?

So, how does green tea work?

It turns out that green tea contains high levels of naturally occurring compounds called antioxidant polyphenols. Scientists have focused on a particular polyphenol found in green tea: a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG.

The EGCG combined with the caffeine in green tea produces what scientists call diet-induced thermogenesis. This effect boosts your body temperature and your metabolism, forcing your body to work harder and burn calories to cool you down. The green tea ingredients trigger your body to release stored fat into your blood stream where it is converted to energy by your liver and muscles.

Green tea essentially triggers your body to boost your metabolism, melt fat, and burn it. Awesome!

EGCG does much more for you than just burn fat. It will lower your cholesterol, boost your memory, prevent the flu, and much more.

 

Boost the Fat Burn: Combine Green Tea With Exercise!

It’s important that you don’t view green tea as a magic bullet that will make you skinny overnight. As we said, on its own, green tea will only help you lose about one pound per month. You also need to make sure that you are eating sensibly and exercising regularly.

As a bonus, you’ll get even more fat burning results from green tea when you combine it with regular exercise. Studies have shown that drinking three to four cups of green tea per day will boost your exercise endurance by causing your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates during your workouts.

Burning the carbs stored in your muscles causes the buildup of lactic acid which leads to fatigue and sore muscles. But green tea causes your muscles to burn more fat instead of carbs, which delays your fatigue and increases your endurance. And, of course, you are burning and eliminating more fat with every workout!

 

Is Green Tea Better than Black Tea or Coffee?

Drinking green tea can help you lose 10 or more pounds each year. That’s much better than gaining a few pounds each year!

If you don’t like green tea, can you get the same benefit from other teas or coffee?

Green Tea Helps With Weight Loss

Unfortunately, not.

All non-herbal tea comes from the same plant. But unlike oolong or black tea, green tea leaves are not fermented before they are dried. As a result, green tea has much higher concentrations of the catechins that provide weight loss and other benefits. So other teas aren’t nearly as beneficial as green tea.

And coffee also doesn’t work. While some of the fat burning effects are caused by the caffeine in green tea, researchers found that its the combination of the catechins and the caffeine together that cause the weight loss effects. Swiss researchers looking at this issue concluded that “green tea has thermogenic properties… beyond that explained by its caffeine content.” Green tea extracts without caffeine did not work, and neither did caffeine alone.
