Everyone starts their year with the new year’s resolution of losing weight and getting in the gym. Some of us became strong and consistent but, somehow, along the way, were thrown off course and strayed away from that goal. Some struggle with motivation to go to the gym or take that first step, and some just need help knowing where to start.
Tea is a beverage enjoyed around the world. You can make it by pouring hot water onto tea leaves and allowing them to steep for several minutes, so their flavor infuses into the water. Drinking tea has many health benefits, including protecting cells from damage and reducing the risk of heart disease.
Some studies have even found that tea may enhance weight loss and help fight belly fat. Certain types are more effective than others at achieving this. Here are some teas that help promote healthy weight loss and burn belly fat.
- Green Tea
Green tea is high in a type of antioxidant called catechins and has been associated with weight loss and fat loss.
- Puerh Tea
Human and animal studies show that Puerh tea extract may help enhance weight loss while lowering blood sugar and triglyceride levels.
- Black Tea
Black tea is high in flavones and has been associated with weight, BMI, and waist circumference reductions.
- Oolong Tea
Oolong tea may help reduce weight and body fat by increasing metabolism and improving fat burning.
- White Tea
One test-tube study found that white tea extract may increase fat loss. However, only a little research on humans currently exists, and more is needed.
- Herbal Tea
Though research is limited, some studies have found that herbal teas, including rooibos tea, may help reduce weight and increase fat loss.
