If you are interested in learning about green tea weight loss you have found the right article. In this article you will learn what the claims are and whether or not this diet lives up to them. The basics, as a preface, are this; green tea is an antioxidant, it is supposed to increase the metabolism, and it is supposed to be a natural detox for your body. In the following paragraphs I will touch on each of the above and conclude with my opinion.
First, is it an antioxidant? Yes and here is how it applies to weight loss. By working on the body as a natural laxative, it allows you to discard toxins and built up waste that is trapped in your colon. The same properties that allow it to do this may help to prevent damage to your cells that may happen due to free radicals. The combination of these two aspects may leave you much healthier than when you started.
Second, does it increase the rate of your metabolism? This is up for debate, and in my opinion, I think it depends to a certain extent on the individual, their activity level, and their overall health prior to beginning the green tea diet. But, some people do claim that green tea does increase the rate of their metabolism.
Last, is it a natural detox? This was touched on in the previous paragraph, but not fully. The basic idea that supports this claim says that like many other herbal teas, when green tea is drunk hot, it will act to one, hydrate your bowls, and two flush them. This, is too up for debate, but it does seem to have this effect on many.
In conclusion, I have never personally used green tea as a weight loss supplement, but I have drunk it as a natural detox, and it did seem to leave me feeling much healthier. All of the claims made in this article are only my opinion, so make sure to consult a doctor before using green tea.
