Drinking green tea may fight fat. Substances found in green tea known as catechins may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and decreasing body fat.
Source January issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Great article on WebMD about Green Tea and fat fighting. I have been drinking Green Tea for many years but not consistently. We drink Green Tea with Lemons and Ginger to really pack a punch!
Ginger It can be used to ease indigestion and reduce gas, bloating along with flatulence. The spicy component of ginger can also rev up your internal fire along with upping your metabolism.
Lemon From a lot of reading, the phytochemicals in lemons do some sort of stabilizing magic on the catechins when they’re in your digestive tract. What does that mean? When you sip Green Tea your body may destroy good enzymes in the tea. Lemon will counteract that. You can also take a colon cleanser Lemon Ginger & Cayenne pills to help detox your body.
