3 Green Tea Tips for Weight Loss
Are you wanting to shed some calories? When it comes to weight loss, most people think about cutting calories and exercise. However, they overlook the myriad of beneficial substances that can aid them in the process.
Explore green tea.
The potential of this drink to aid in your weight loss program should not be overlooked.
Researchers have found that the caffeine and flavonoids in green tea can help to spike up the body’s metabolic rate. The most important of these flavonoids is a substance called EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), which works to increase your calorie and fat burn. This means you will burn more calories, even at rest! The compounds found in green tea have also been found to increase fat oxidation and even improve insulin activity.
Tip 1: How many cups should you drink per day? Overall weight loss depends on individual body dynamics but as little as 2 - 3 cups a day can help you in your weight loss mission.
Tip 2: If you are going to include green tea as a weapon in your weight loss arsenal, it is important to consider different sources and their quality. Packet and processed green tea sold in commercial stores are often laden with sugar – which will encourage weight gain instead. Opt for the natural route instead. Here at Roleaf, we source our green tea only from top-notch suppliers, so you can be sure you are drinking the best.
Tip 3: If it is to your liking, matcha powder is arguably the best form of green tea when it comes to weight loss. The whole leaf is grounded into powder form and consumed as a beverage.
Why not add this extra boost to help you achieve your weight loss goals? A little green tea goes a long, long way.
