Green Tea Benefits
|Like most folks, I could stand to lose a few pounds. I do my best as far as diet and exercise go, such as trying to make healthy food choices whenever possible and jogging or doing other cardio workouts at least 5 times per week, but apparently that's not enough to get rid of some of my belly fat. After doing a bit of reading about green tea weight loss properties, I've decided to work this beverage into my daily routine to see if I've finally found the missing element.
Some people are already aware of the many proven green tea weight loss benefits, but quite a few aren't. After all, if everyone knew how much this refreshing drink could help in the seemingly never ending quest to shed pounds, then we might see a change in sales figures within the beverage industry. Forget about diet sodas and those flavored teas loaded with sugar; people would board the green tea weight loss bandwagon in droves!
| One of the most important green tea weight loss benefits for dieters is that it helps you burn more fat. This beverage contains large amounts of polyphenol, an antioxidant that has been shown to improve your health in many ways. For instance, polyphenols are good for your skin and might prevent wrinkles. Polyphenols are also a critical component for dissolving triglycerides, which are essentially the chemical form of fat after it is broken down in the body. In other words, you can help remove excess fat and perhaps even lower cholesterol as well simply by drinking a refreshing beverage.
People who have tried green tea weight loss diets have also reported that they often have more energy after consuming this beverage, which helps them exercise longer and, by extension, also boosts their metabolism. I know that even when I'm eating right, I sometimes don't have enough energy to get through the day. I become sluggish in the late afternoons, which can then result in a poor workout. Or, if things are really bad, I might skip my workout altogether and simply go right home after work to take a nap. So I could definitely benefit from any extra energy that this drink might provide. And no, the boost doesn't just come from caffeine. Those who are familiar with green tea weight loss properties seem to think that the jolt comes primarily from catechin polyphenols in the beverage.
Anyway, I'm excited to start in on this green tea weight loss program that I've read about. I like the fact that I won't have to change my lifestyle all that much or make any major sacrifices. I'll just replace a glass or two of water (and perhaps one of the Diet Cokes I drink throughout the day) with this healthier alternative and see where it gets me. Hopefully this will be the breakthrough I've been looking for!
