Four Teas That Work Together for Weight Loss
The word "diet" is frequently used to initiate a weight loss program. And when you think of diet you think of changing the foods you eat, or reducing the amount of food you eat to reduce caloric intake. Without a doubt a good, balanced diet is essential for losing weight, but enhancing the efficiency of your digestive system is just as important as maintaining a good diet - this is where teas can greatly help.
Oolong Tea: Oolong is a tea that promotes a healthy metabolism and aides in the digestive process. Digestion is a very important process in weight loss, if foods are not broken down properly, then your body has to store unwanted calories resulting in excess weight. Metabolism is the rate at which your body burns calories, and this also contributes to weight loss or gain.
Yerba Mate Tea: Yerba Mate Tea is the last tea in this combination of weight loss teas; the benefit here is appetite suppression. There is a part of your brain that responds to appetite. Studies show that by drinking certain teas (mate) you can reduce the urge to eat, and this means a reduction in calories. Some people feel that by suppressing your appetite you may not get the nutritional needs required daily. There can be some truth to this, so the answer is - take supplements while going through the weight loss process.
The teas mentioned above can be blended together to work as a synergistic, weight loss drink. To get the maximum benefit from teas you must buy quality tea. Generally store-bought tea bags won't provide the potency needed for good results. Find a good, local retailer who sells loose teas leaves fresh from the manufacturer.
