When all you need is a diet and a plan

Green Tea Diet

Green Tea Diet:

A Green Tea Diet is one of the most popular diets going. It has so many useful components and the diet is full of antioxidants. It helps you to be more energetic, reduce weight, protect your skin from ultraviolet rays, lower cholesterol plaque, plus strengthen bones, teeth and gums.

High-quality green tea contains a special substance called Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Its task is to speed up the metabolic processes in our body. The EGCG sends the brain a signal to fight fat cells. This means that by following a green tea diet you can lose weight and feel full of energy by drinking at least 2 cups of green tea each day.

Take a note: you should use only a warm beverage without sugar and honey. The boiled water destroys the EGCG enzyme. Also, the green tea is a strong diuretic as are all teas. So, you should drink at least 3 liters of plain water per day on a Green Tea Diet.

Some people think, that this diet allows drinking only green tea. That’s false. Green tea helps your body to boost a number of bodily processes which support weight loss, but you still need to eat healthy food.

Our team prepared for you an easy and tasty meal plan for 7 days. Enjoy!

The Pros Of A Green Tea Diet:

  • easy to follow for many people;
  • makes your body more healthy and energetic;
  • contains many antioxidants which protect your body from free radicals in the blood (which are a cause of cancers);
  • regulates blood pressure;
  • helps to boost metabolic processes in your body

The Cons Of A Green Tea Diet:

  • individual contraindications;
  • if you are allergic to green tea for any reason, the allergic reaction for some sorts of green tea can dehydrate your body.

Features Of A Green Tea Diet:

  • drink only the sugarless green tea (not canned);
  • drink 3 liters of pure water per day;
  • drink a cup of green tea 4 times per day before the meal;
  • use only high-quality tea without flavor and sugars;
  • add some sports activities in your life;
  • there is no sound scientific proof that  green tea will help you lose extra pounds: this will depend on your own metabolism when on the green tea diet.
