In this fast paced world we are living in today. We are always looking for a quick fix, especially when it comes to our health.

There are so many fat burning products out there claiming to burn fat quick, that sometimes we forget to think about how we may be sacrificing our health to achieve this fat burning process. Regardless of how unnatural the process may be, we forget about the natural ways.

One of the popular ways is green tea. You are probably asking yourself, is it possible to burn fat with green tea?

If coupled with a healthy diet and regular exercise, then yes, green tea can help in the process of burning fat.

Now don’t think of green tea as this magical potion that once you drink it, the fat will start melting right in front of your eyes. Like everything else in life, the work and effort has to be put in for results to show itself.

The Hype With Green Tea

When deciding to live a healthy lifestyle, it’s all about creating healthy habits. Not to say that if you drink green tea you will be healthy, but it sure does seem like most healthy people drink green tea. Green tea has been known to have many benefits if consumed daily.

It carries many anti-oxidants which helps aids in the fight against cancer growing cells. Which we know is formed by uncontrolled growth of cells. So if there is a way to help burn fat and help prevent cancer growing cells from forming in your body, you have to take it right?

Lose Weight Naturally

Some studies have shown that drinking green tea is a great way to help you lose weight naturally and lower your risk of becoming obese. One way this is possible is by boosting your metabolic rate. Increasing your metabolism as we all know, helps in the calorie burning process, thus causing you to burn fat and lose weight.

However, some studies have shown there not to be much statistically significant increase when it comes to weight loss, so this should be taken with a grain of salt. I do recommend asking some of your healthy friends if they drink tea and decide if it is something you may want to try.

Hot Tea vs Iced Tea

Although both has it health benefits whether you drink it hot or cold, studies have shown that hot water helps draw out the natural flavor and nutritious compounds in the water.

More antioxidants are released due to the hot water, thus giving you the full benefits of green tea. Also according to the Tea Association, Drinking fresh hot tea, allows for maximum antioxidant consumption.

Add Flavor To Your Tea

If you are having trouble consuming tea due to it not being flavorful enough for you, instead of using unnatural sugar, try using honey. Honey is an amazing substitute to some of the sweeteners used these days and has great health benefits.

One being that it is an anti-inflammatory and is great for the skin. Although, be careful adding honey to boiling water as it destroys all the nutrients honey provides for the body. So if your tea is lacking that flavor you so desire, try adding some honey to it.

Please share below how you make Green Tea a part of your daily fitness life.

    1. Thanks Sarah! Green Tea does have a way of making you feel better right after you drink it. Once you make it a habit, it almost becomes second nature to want to drink it daily.

  3. Nice article on green tea. I am an avid tea drinker, and I always carry a cup of some type of tea with me. It really is a shame that you couldn’t drink tea and just have fat melt away, but that’s just how things work. I usually flavor me tea with Stevia, as it is a natural and very low calorie, low carb sweetener. I also just let tea bags steep for a while, which I find gives it a nice strong flavor. Thanks for the post!

    1. Thanks Pete! Yea if only tea worked that way. You have to work for everything when it comes to fitness. But it is definitely a rewarding feeling when you are to create the habit of healthy living and get results. I also let the bag steep for while as it does give it a stronger taste, but I tend to use honey for a added sweetener.
