Green Tea and Weight Loss

In addition to exercising and a healthy diet, drinking green tea seems to help regaining a proper weight.
A study3 conducted at the Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh observed the effects of green tea consumption. A group of students between the ages of 19-37 were asked to drink 4 cups of green tea per day without changing their usual diet. After 14 days, the students showed a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, in total cholesterol, in body fat and body weight. This may be explained by the high levels of polyphenols and other antioxidants contained in green tea.
