Can tea help you lose weight?
You can drink tea and lose weight.
The one question that comes up more often than any other is "Which teas should I be drinking to help me lose weight?"
Studies have been conducted on green tea and weight loss
The funny thing is that it doesn't matter. A few years ago, scientists began studying green teas and their effect on weight loss. And they came up with some pretty striking results. In short - yes, drinking green tea helps you lose weight.
But it's not quite that simple. This does NOT mean that black tea oolong tea are not also beneficial. It just means that they were not part of the study.
More recent studies looked at other teas
More recently, a number of studies have looked at these other tea types. And the results are coming in thick and fast. It seems - as many of us suspected - that pretty much any tea will help you lose weight. There are some differences in the exact nutritional content of these teas, but not many.
So my advice remains what it has always been - try a number of teas and see what you like best. Your body will tell you which tea is best for you. Listen to what it is saying, then buy the teas which are good for you - AND that you enjoy drinking.
Tea is good for you and delicious too
There is not actually a rule that says that stuff that's good for you can't taste delicious. And in tea we are blessed with the best of both worlds. Drink tea, lose weight - and enjoy a wonderful, delicious, natural product at the same time.
I would like to add one point however. There is one herb that out-performs all other herbs and all teas in weight loss, and that is Yerba Mate. This South American plant, which tastes a bit like green tea, is pleasant, refreshing and extremely good for you.
So there you have it. Drink tea, drink Yerba Mate. Drink whichever ones you like best (after all, you've got to enjoy it or you won't stick to it). And you can see a beautiful, healthy, trim new you emerging in the weeks ahead!
