Drinking green tea promotes slimming?

It looks like my slimming down over these few months could have been a result of drinking green tea almost every other day. I had initially thought that my weight loss was due to eating pineapples but it may not be entirely due to that.

Many of you are probably aware that green tea is particularly rich in a type of polyphenols called catechins and it is these catechins that researchers say may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and decreasing body fat.

According to the Amercian Society for Clinical Nutrition, drinking green tea can increase calories burned through fat breakdown.

green tea has thermogenic properties and promotes fat oxidation…The green tea extract may play a role in the control of body composition via sympathetic activation of thermogenesis, fat oxidation, or both.

Actually I drink green tea for the antioxidant benefits and I had only realized the potential for slimming after Leon of Beauty Secrets Revealed sounded me up because it had an effect for her.  Maybe the green tea plus the pineapples had caused me to lose weight so rapidly over the past few months?

    I love this article it is full of great information. I love my green tea but when I am doing the rounds I don’t always get the chance so I have been supplementing with green tea extract by innoveat which is part of a system and I am losing the fat around my hips and thighs.
