Last year when I came to know that drinking green tea can make us lose weight, I started drinking 2 – 3 cups of hot green tea mixed with lemon every day. And the results shocked me! I lost 2 kgs in a month – Yes, a month! Whenever I flipped through channels, I saw advertisements for Green Tea and how it helps people lose weight. All I did was pat my back for having resort to drinking green tea for weight loss. The question is, does green tea really aids weight loss? And the answer is yes, it does! No kidding I am, believe me. I have advised a lot of my relatives and friends and colleagues to try green tea recipes for weight loss, and thankfully, have received many gifts from them for telling them a weight loss recipe that actually worked. So, I am gonna share with you the success of my weight loss in this blog. Here are some effective ways to use green tea for weight loss.
How to Use Green Tea for Weight Loss?
1. Green Tea and Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are enriched with protein, fibre, and omega 3 fatty acids. Green tea and chia seed is the perfect combination to achieve weight loss goals.
Take one cup of water and bring it to boil. Put the green tea bag into the water and allow it to steep for three minutes. Remove the tea bag, and add chia seeds. Mix well and leave the mixture in the fridge for an hour. Take it out after one hour, shake well and drink.
2. Green Tea and Aloe Vera
Aloe vera lowers cholesterol levels, strengthens our immune system, boosts metabolism, and promotes weight loss.
To prepare this green tea recipe, you will need one cup of hot water, one green tea bag, 1 teaspoon of fresh aloe vera gel, and one teaspoon honey.
Now, simply pour a cup of hot water into a pitcher and put a tea bag in it. Allow it to steep for about two minutes. Then remove the tea bag and add aloe vera and honey to the tea. Stir well and then pour the tea into a teacup. Enjoy!
3. Green Tea and Cinnamon
Cinnamon contains nutrients that help lower cholesterol levels, and promote heart health. It also helps to prevent cancer, improve cognitive abilities, and promote weight loss.
For this recipe, you will need one green tea bag, 1 cinnamon stick, juice of ½ lemon, 3 cups of hot water, and one tablespoon honey.
Steep cinnamon stick and tea in hot water for about 5 minutes. Mix in honey and fresh lemon juice. Stir well and enjoy!
These were the top ways to use green tea for weight loss. However, these are just natural remedies and won’t yield great weight loss results if you do not exercise and eat a healthy diet. You must avoid eating junk food, go for a walk daily, and eat a balanced diet to lose weight quickly.
