Exercise and eating right can be difficult, especially in today’s world where fast foods rule. Who has time to make healthy meals from scratch every day? Even if you do , chances are you’re going to slip up every now and then and eat something not-so-great. However, healthy living is a journey, so it’s not like you’re “blowing your diet” or anything. But if you have a weight loss goal to meet, you may need a little boost for those times where you only have enough time left in your lunch break to run through the drive-through.
You may have seen a number of diet pills that contained green tea extract, claiming to aid weight loss or help you drop pounds fast. While diet pills are super dangerous (don’t even go there!), it doesn’t mean that green tea is too. In fact, natural green tea is not only good for your health, it’s also great for boosting your weight loss naturally! Sipping green tea without cream and sugar is a zero calorie way to hydrate yourself and rev up your metabolism.
Oxidize And Burn More Fat With Green Tea
Green tea has been proven to raise a person’s metabolism by about 4%, due to the catechin polyphenols that are available in high concentrations in green tea. These chemicals affect both thermogenesis and fat oxidation, helping you to melt the pounds away.
Regulate Your Glucose
Green tea has also been shown to inhibit glucose from entering fat cells, and helps to regulate glucose in the body. This means you will have less peaks in your daily insulin levels, which helps to reduce the storage of fat in your body. When you have high insulin levels, it triggers your body to store fat. Drinking green tea each day can help you burn the fat you consume instead of packing it on your hips or thighs.
Replace Your Coffee With Green Tea
You can do a lot of good by kicking your java habit, that is, unless you drink your coffee black – which people rarely do. That Starbucks latte you get every morning is laden with calories! In fact, some coffee drinks pack as many calories as a double cheeseburger! Swap out your coffee for green tea and not only will you feel better, you’ll burn more calories than you take in just with a drink. Even just doing that one thing will help you notice a slimmer waistline in a couple of weeks.
