Can You Really Burn Fat with Tea?

(Diet & Weight Loss), With all the hype about diet tea and weight loss going around lately, the team did some investigating.

Claims from the companies who make tea range anywhere from increased energy, weight loss, cancer prevention, anti-aging, stopping certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, fat burning properties and more.

Joy Bauer, a New York City nutritionist, says (the catechins in green tea) increase levels of the metabolism speeding brain chemical norepinephrine (noradrenaline).

Conducting a little experiment, with three women, ranging in height and weight, each drink a different weight loss tea for 30 days. They each drank 2 cups of tea a day and continued with their normal eating and exercise habits. They were weighed in before starting the tea and after 30 days of drinking the tea.


While none of these women reported any miracle disease cures one reported that she felt increased brain activity at work, which she assumed was from drinking the tea. Additionally each one reported some weight loss, which is very positive. Overall, it's safe to conclude that drinking enhanced green tea products to assist your weight loss is a worthy pursuit in your well rounded fitness program.

It also helps, of course, if you lay off the snacks.

I not sure for certain that you can burn fat with tea but I do know that what works for one person may not work for the next. You really have to find your own fitness regimen that work for you so you can succeed.
