Oh, boy. Now, here’s a tender subject – weight loss.
I get nagged about this almost every single day ever since size 2 became the new measure of beauty and attractiveness. Yes, I am on the heavier side of the tipping scale and it’s always been hard for me to lose weight. I have never been a fan of physical effort so you can only imagine how hard it is for me to be consistent in the gym. I have tried weight loss pills, food supplements, meal replacements and a bunch of other hyped up product but none of them worked for me.
I was sure those manufactured products has brought harm to my body. I was at a loss for means to lose weight. Until recently.
I have found a great and healthy way to help me lose weight while I’m trying to find enough drive to keep up with my workout regimen. The answer? Teas.
Yes, you read right. The right teas and infusions can help double your weight loss by shrinking your appetite or simple detoxifying your body. Check out our top 5 teas!
Even before I found out about how Oolong tea helps with weight loss, I’ve already been a big fan because of its robust flavor. Learning that it can help you lose a pound a week by boosting your metabolism is just the cherry on top!
Oolong tea has catechins that help metabolize lipids or fats as commonly known.
2Apple Cider Vinegar Tea
Apple cider vinegar has been proven to have many health benefits – from anti-inflammatory to anti-bacterial and blood sugar suppression. It is also proven to help with weight loss by speeding up the digestion process and improving metabolism.
Combining these ingredients, which also have their own super health benefits, will make for a potent yet very effective detoxifying drink. This recipe by Taste-A-Holics is both refreshing and cleansing.
I have tried drinking green tea every night for three weeks straight and have personally experienced the benefits it has to help lose weight. Green tea has anti-cancer properties and speeds up the metabolism. Not to mention, it also helps for smoother bowel movements which help you lose weight.
Can you imagine burning a whopping 70 calories per day just by drinking this tea?
4White Tea with Lemon
Known as the “Fat Blocker”, white tea is the most natural and richest source of antioxidants among the tea family because of how it’s naturally dried in the heat of the sun away from all the process manufacturers implement.
According to a study published in the Nutrition and Metabolism journal, white tea can speed up the lipolysis, which is the breakdown of fat, and block adipogenesis, which is the formation of fat cells. For me, this is the ultimate diet tea.
Exclusively grown in the Cederberg region of South Africa, Rooibos tea is said to be the hunger halter by regulating fat storage hormones.
Studies show Rooibos contains a component called Aspalathin which reduces hormones that trigger hunger. This compound that Rooibos is rich in also reduces fat storage that affects hypertension, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Though not found in minor countries and quite expensive, this tea is proven to be worth every penny.
There you have the five best teas to help you lose weight.
3/5 I have personally tried and would recommend to anyone who wants to speed up the process of getting their dream bikini body or just get healthier.
What I have learned in many years of seesawing from losing to gaining is that self-discipline is the key. If you don’t discipline yourself to getting up in the morning to run, eat healthier and be consistent with your tea regimen, then only liposuction would work for you if you have the money.
It takes self-control and the drive to lose weight among anything else. Think about your goal, find a drive and don’t stop until you get there.
I have not reached my goal and it’s been a struggle for me but I feel stronger and healthier everyday. And, I’m not putting on the brakes until I reach my target. Sure, I’ll run off course here and there but I’ll keep at it as long as it takes. Believe you can do it and you’ll get there!
