It’s a new year and you know what that means. It’s time, once again, to make your New Year’s resolution(s)! Among the most popular: resolving to shed those unwanted pounds, once and for all. If you vow to lose weight in 2020, consider supporting your resolution with diet (a.k.a. slimming) tea!
Available in many varieties, from white, green and black to oolong and pu'erh, tea is a popular beverage across the globe. The herbal brew is believed to help reduce inflammation and protect against conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. But can it help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight?
All tea contains substances called flavonoids, phytonutrients which may provide health benefits. Among these flavonoids are catechins, which may increase metabolism and help the body break down fats more rapidly. Plus, many varieties of tea contain caffeine, which can increase energy and cause your body to burn additional calories. Not to mention, replacing sugary soda or that high-cal beverage from your favorite coffee chain with a cup of tea can save you hundreds of calories per day.
When paired with a sensible diet, slimming teas may further boost weight loss by:
- Stimulating digestion
- Increasing metabolism
- Suppressing the appetite
- Ridding the body of impurities
