The first thing that comes into most people’s minds when they hear something about green tea is ‘Green Tea and Weight loss’. If this is the case for you, then you are in the right place. If not, then also you are in the right place. (It was just a metaphor…ha)
Many people think of green tea as a magical drink that will make their belly fat vanish in the thin air, and they will be slim as Nicole Kidman. (Or maybe Ryan Reynolds if you are a male) But this is not true.
What? Well, it’s not entirely accurate, at least.
Green tea will help your body to achieve physical fitness. But you need to move your body first. Then only you can achieve wellness.
Let’s try to digest some facts about green tea and weight loss.
Green Tea and Weight Loss
Green tea is a vibrant source of polyphenol antioxidants. Polyphenols are known for stimulating fat breakdown by increasing the calorie-burning rate. It does that by boosting the metabolism of your body.
The important thing here is the metabolism rate, which boosts the calorie-burning rate. You cant burn calories by sitting idle. No matter how many antioxidants you consume. If you wouldn’t do any exercise, you will not lose weight.
Green Tea and Exercise
During exercise, green tea plays a vital role. Caffeine in green tea will boost alertness and enable you to do more exercise. More exercise and increased metabolism help in weight loss.
Even while yoga green tea helps you focus clearly, this elevated focus will give you better results both in yoga and meditation.
Green Tea and Belly Fat
There is a common belief that green tea will make you lose your belly fat. Well, there is a logic behind that.
There is a difference between belly fat and increased size of the belly. Green can help in the reduction of belly fat, that is true. But what is true is that green tea will reduce your belly size.
When you have a big belly and try to cut back on your food intake, the biggest problem you will face is headaches. And the cause of this headache is acidity.
The problem with a big belly is that your stomach’s space gets filled with Gas every time you go on a diet. It means the headache you experience in a diet is not because of eating less. It is because of acidity.
Green tea will reduce the acidity build up and increase the chance of a successful diet and belly size reduction.
Green Tea Extract For Weight Loss
Many people choose green tea extract for weight loss. You might think that extract means more nutrients in less material. But in reality, extracts are complicated. In most of the products, there is no mention of the extraction process.
Some extraction processes are brewing based. In these types of extracts, there are very few polyphenols left in the final product. My suggestion is that you should stick to the regular green tea instead of green tea extracts.
What you can do is that you can make a green tea shot (Decoction) and drink it like a coffee shot for better results.
Best Green Tea and Weight Loss Brands
With too many green tea brands available in the market, it is very hard to decide the best one. Some of the good ones are:
- Lipton Green Tea
- Twinings Green Tea
- Tetley Green Tea
- Yogi Green Tea
- The People’s Green Tea
These are all the good ones that you can find in the markets. But the best green tea for me is the one which doesn’t come with a 3-year shelf life. I get my tea from small tea collectors in India, China, and Japan. I look for the whole leaf, the second flush, preferably hand-rolled green tea.
