7. Drink green tea to help lose weight
Several studies have shown that green tea can help with weight and fat reduction by helping to increase energy expenditure. This is mostly due to a phytochemical compound in green tea called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate).
What can you do?
Look for a green tea that has a high catechin content. Research has also shown that green tea steeped in bottled water contains more antioxidants in comparison to tea steeped in tap water.
The green tea had almost twice the amount of the EGCG antioxidant when steeped in bottled water, making it more bitter compared to tea steeped in tap water. If you do not enjoy drinking green tea, try an EGCG extract, which is available as a dietary supplement
