How Green tea helps weight loss

Have you ever wanted to lose a few pounds but have to resort to extreme diets or spending lots of time in the gym to burn off a few ounces? The problem is that as soon as you stop the diet or miss a day at the gym, the pounds come back with a vengeance.

Although exercising is good and should be encouraged to keep the body in shape, it should not be used as a means to lose weight. As you get older, you exercise less and middle age spread creeps in.

Fad dieting is not the answer either. The problem with fad dieting is the body is starved immediately of the foods it has come to rely on and very often it is starved of the nutrients and vitamins it needs to remain healthy. The body is looking for ways to find the food it has lost and will store it at the very first opportunity. That is why, as soon as a diet is stopped, the pounds increase.

The answer is a life style change. 

The body should not be starved and it should not be beaten to death either. The best way to lose weight and maintain a healthy life style is a balanced diet that includes drinking green tea.

Green tea helps you lose weight naturally. 

Scientific studies show us what the Chinese have known for five thousand years, tea is good for you.

How it works

Our liver and small intestine turns our food into a substance called triglyceride which is carried around our body in the bloodstream. Triglyceride is a major source of energy and is very necessary for our bodies to maintain proper function. When there is an excess of triglyceride it turns into body fat and if not removed can cause obesity and accompanying ailments such as diabetes and heart failure. High levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to angina and hardening of the arteries.

To remove triglyceride, the body uses an enzyme activated by polyphenols. Polyphenols are a powerful antioxidant that removes the free radicals from the body. They are not manufactured by the body and must be ingested with the diet. One of the best sources of polyphenols is green tea.

One of the powerful antioxidants, called catechin polyphenols, in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which stimulates the metabolism which in turn increases the weight loss process. ECGC releases fats into the bloodstream to be burned off as energy.

Drinking green tea makes you feel more energetic naturally and is much more effective than caffeine alone.

Including green tea into your daily diet is an easy and enjoyable way to lose weight without making extreme changes to your diet or following a grueling exercise regimen.
