Tea is a wonderful weight loss aid. According to scientific studies, regular tea drinking (at least 1 cup a day) increases metabolism, promotes fat burning, regulates blood sugar levels, reduces fat deposits in the abdomen and lowers cholesterol. Tea’s weight-loss effects are not caused by caffeine. Tea contains no fat, carbs or sodium and less than 2 calories per cup. Tea also hydrates the body and helps curb the appetite.
Although tea boosts metabolism and makes a great addition to any weight loss routine, moderation, a healthy diet and regular exercise are imperative to loosing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
