As summer comes to an end and we all begin to realize that, oh boy, I really shouldn't have eaten so much on vacation. Maybe I didn't need that second helping of cake or ice cream every night. But, it was soooo good!
Don't beat yourself up about it because it will not serve you. Start focusing on the things that will help you lose those unwanted pounds and the lack of energy you feel from it.
Drinking tea can help you burn calories and boost your metabolism so you have more energy. Tea has a type of flavonoid called catechins that can boost metabolism and help your body break down fats more quickly. The caffeine in many teas increases your energy use, causing your body to burn more calories. These two compounds work best together for weight loss.
Green and oolong tea are packed with catechins, which boost weight loss efforts by improving the body's ability to process fat. A six-week Chinese study found that participants who regularly sipped the brew lost a pound a week! But, you shouldn't drink green tea on an empty stomach. The tannins present in the green tea increase the stomach acid which may cause stomach ache, nauseous feeling, or cause constipation. It is best to drink green tea after a meal or in-between meals. Green tea and exercise help you lose weight and reduce your risk of several diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Three to five cups of green tea per day seems to be optimal to reap the most health benefits.
There are all natural herbal teas that can help to flatten the stomach by aiding digestion and reducing bloating. Peppermint tea and ginger tea combined with daily exercise are the top choices for people who wish to flatten their stomach using all natural herbal teas.
Add tea to your daily your weight loss plan and get started on shedding those unwanted pounds.
Peace, Love and Tea
