Did you know that you could go to Starbucks and pick up a drink that will burn fat? This drink has been around for centuries, and has proven to burn fat simply by consuming it. What is this magic potion you are asking yourself right now…?

It is the infamous green tea! If you haven’t heard already, green tea is a great drink to have that will give you a small dose of caffeine, and a whole lot of health benefits including shedding those lbs.

A long time ago, I had read about the effects of green tea on weight and my question at that time was, but how? I was definitely a skeptic. So, I went on a mission to consume as much information as I possibly could to answer this question, and I am happy to report the following:

Tea type is determined by a how heavily the tea is oxidized during processing. Darker the tea the more flavor and caffeine it will have. Hence black tea has more caffeine and bolder flavors than green tea. Green tea is completely unoxidized, this means it has less caffeine, but it retains more of its nutritional value, especially the antioxidants.

Antioxidants are awesome! They help you look and feel younger, reverse the aging process, boost energy, and help you lose weight by accident (heck ya).

Green tea contains powerful antioxidants called EGCG, along with the caffeine, the central nervous system is stimulated and causes fat to be released into the blood stream for the body to use as fuel. Hence an increase in metabolism.

So, when you are having green tea it is preferable for weight loss to have it warm, but if you must add a little ice that is totally fine.
I have to admit personally I love lose leaf green tea, but at Starbucks get the following: Green Tea Latte, China Green Tips Brewed Tea, or Iced Green Tea Latte, so you can feel better about what you are putting into your body!
