1. Weight Maintenance: Green Tea

Whether you’re looking to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, or battling against aging, any help you can get to slow your metabolism is incredibly welcome. Studies are numerous on green tea and it’s effects on metabolism and weight loss, and the overall conclusion has yet to be determined, but it looks promising. A scientific study from Pennsylvania State University tested the affects of green tea on rats when combined with regular exercise. It noted an average abdominal fat mass reduction of 36.6 percent. But there is a small catch. The study found that you’ll need to drink 8 to 10 cups a day of green tea to have the full effect.

WebMD also talks about how green tea can fight diseases and boost metabolism, but notes that it can often be a “drop in the bucket” in terms of overall weight loss support. However, when making life changes that stick, often a swap like coffee for tea, is something that can add up greatly over time, without leaving you feeling deprived. Every little bit counts!
