Green tea benefits:

At Lose Baby Weight, we are big fans of green tea and believe it to be a great addition to your diet for health as well as weight loss.

As well as helping to boost your metabolism, green tea is also full of other health benefits and the powerful antioxidants in the tea are thought to fight off disease and help the immune system.

One of the best and easiest moves you can make for your health is to swap your regular black tea or coffee to a healthy green tea.

So what makes green tea so good? It contains powerful antioxidants called catechin polyphenols that are responsible for the health benefits of the tea and they are thought to stimulate the metabolism and speed up weight loss.

The polyphenols stimulate the central nervous system and the result is that fat is released into the blood stream for the body to use burn as energy. This process of fat being used for energy is called “thermogenesis”.

Green tea is also thought to help us exercise for longer – which is a bonus if you are feeling sleep deprived. This is thought to work when the catechin polyphenols in green tea stimulate the use of fatty acids by liver and muscle cells. This then reduces the rate that carbohydrates are used and allows for more longer exercise times and better endurance

On the Lose Baby Weight plan and our 28 Day Breastfeeding Friendly Diet & Exercise Plan we suggest having around 4 cups per day of the decaffeinated green tea – however – it is not a magic drink and you will still need to eat well and exercise to achieve your weight loss goal – but it is a great addition to your weight loss plans as well as your health so go and buy some today.
