Green Tea and Weight Loss

In studies, people who drank three to five cups a day for three months lost 4.6 percent of their body weight. Other studies show drinking two to four cups daily can burn an extra 50 calories, which equals about five pounds lost every year.

Compounds in green tea known as polyphenols help burn fat even when you are at rest. These polyphenols may even block the conversion of calories into fat. One study confirmed that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in overweight and moderately obese individuals.

Green tea also attacks fat through an amino acid it contains called L-theanine. L-theanine has a calming effect on the nervous system and can help reduce stress-related surges in cortisol, a hormone linked to fat storage, especially around the belly.
