The Weight Loss Benefits Of Green Tea.

By Andrew Jackson

I have an insane story about how I lost weight by drinking green tea. I originally weighed about 190 pounds before I began my tea diet. I lost 30 pounds in about 3 months when I started with the tea diet. It doesn't get easier than my experience. Just about anybody can do what I'm about to share with you.

There is a catch though. It is very simple, I just gave up 2 of my favorite daily beverages that contain a lot of empty calories and sugar. Coffee and soda, that's it! Instead of drinking soda for lunch, I drank tea or water. For hot days, tea can be poured over ice too. For breakfast, I drank regular caffeinated tea and quit drinking coffee. So how does green tea help you lose weight?

Green tea contains amazing benefits like antioxidants called catechins. These catechins help increase your basal metabolic rate (BMR) which means you burn more calories just by drinking green tea. Other benefits of drinking tea is that it fights cancer, heart disease, and lowers bad cholesterol.

Losing the weight involved an additional part. Working on simple exercise like speed walking or light jogging was necessary to lose weight. I would suggest about 20 to 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise. You can even do biking too for those of you, and like myself, that have knee problems. After i progressed on my stamina, I added more physical exercises like push-ups and sit-ups.

In order to lose weight and burn fat, you must drink 4 to 5 cups of green tea. I would suggest drinking decaf tea in the evenings to keep you from not sleeping at night. Also, don't forget to get daily but easy cardiovascular exercise. Remember that green tea increases your basal metabolic rate so it is important to drink tea daily. Thank you for reading this article, I hope it will motivate you to start drinking green tea for many several health benefits other than losing weight.
