It is often difficult to take out time from your busy schedule to work out and it is extremely hectic to count every calorie that you eat as well. What we need are small adjustments in our daily routines to enhance our metabolism that would burn the body fat for us with minimum effort. One of the leading techniques that people across the globe are using to lose weight is through the consumption of green tea on a daily basis.
Let us take a look at how a common beverage can successfully do what hundreds of diets fail to do every time.
Replaces calorie packed drinks
Just like every Dollar saved is a Dollar earned, every calorie not consumed is equivalent to a calorie burnt. The minute you start consuming green tea you have started putting this theory into practice. Regular drinks are loaded with calories! Everything from juices to milkshakes to soft drinks are adding calories to your body. Green tea on the other hand has a tenth of the calories and this will help you to lose weight as you have already cut down on the calorie intake and are taking control of the situation.
Increased rate of Metabolism:
Green Tea is loaded with antioxidants that are essential to fat loss and there are infact two benefits to be enjoyed. The first benefit is indirect in nature as the caffeine and catechins (specifically ECGC: Epigallocatechin gallate) helps boost the metabolism that will lead to a quicker rate at which the calories will be burned to produce energy for all of the internal functioning of the body
Releases more fat from fat cells:
Whenever the body needs to burn fat to produce energy, it releases a hormone called norepinephrine into the blood stream. However if it comes in contact with a specific kind of enzyme, it degenerates and breaks down before it can successfully convey the message. The second benefit of the antioxidants is direct in this scenario because the ECGC helps destroy this enzyme. Once this enzyme’s presence is eliminated, norepinephrine can reach the fat cells without and obstructions and this leads to an increased release of the lipids (fats) that have been stored. This fat is then burned to provide energy.
The above mentioned advantages are naturally induced and in no way will harm the body. I believe there is no better way to lose weight with such minimal effort and these practices should be incorporated into our daily lives as soon as possible.
