How to Burn Calories drinking Green Tea

Green Tea has natural properties that help you feel full and help your body burn more fat.

Green tea is filled with catechin polyphenols, chemicals that act both as an antioxidant and as a metabolism (fat burning) booster. Green tea has about 27 percent catechins, while black tea (orange pekoe) has just 4 percent. Catechin polyphenols are natural chemicals that increase the amount of fat that your body burns.

Drink at least 5 cups of green tea a day. Green tea can be counted as you daily water intake. The tea will help you feel full and help your body burn fat. Tea Bags vs. Loose Tea - You may want to start using tea bags for ease of use.

However, eventually, you may want to switch to loose tea which is higher quality. A good green tea, such as sencha can be steeped 2-3 times, so although it costs more, you can use it more.
