When you’re trying to lose weight, help from all sources is welcome. And it always helps if the source is delicious. A cup of tea is welcome at any time – because you need to stay hydrated and sometimes you need the comfort of a hug in a mug. And what’s even better is when the help you’re getting boosts your nutrition or provides some extra antioxidant power. That’s why these teas that will boost your weight loss effort are such a good choice.
1. Green Tea
A cup of green tea can shift your fat-fighting metabolism into top gear. Research shows drinking 4-5 cups of green tea with a 25-minute sweat session may help you lose twice as much weight as those who don't drink green tea. It has compounds called catechins that blast adipose tissue and unlock fat cells. At the same time, it improves your liver's capacity to use that fat for energy, which helps you lose weight faster.
