Teas for a Flatter Tummy

Belly fat can accumulate around your vital organs and increase the risk of diabetes and other diseases. While tea alone won’t solve the problem, it can definitely make a difference.

If you incorporate these teas into a balanced diet, you’re well on your way to a slimmer waistline.

Green Tea

Green tea is arguably the best-known brew when it comes to weight loss. Not only does it have a high caffeine content to get your metabolism going, but also a powerful catechin, called ECGC.

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a halfway point between green and black teas. This Chinese brew is fruitier in flavor, yet still packed with those beneficial polyphenols. What makes this tea special is its ability to reduce hunger cravings and fight unhealthy cholesterol.

Black Tea

This popular tea owes its strength and color to the oxidization of its leaves. Besides the high caffeine content, it’s also strong in polyphenols, and can help with cardiovascular health and blood flow.

White Tea

This tea is brewed from young tea leaves. As a result, it has the lightest flavor of any tea on the list. Numerous studies show that white tea can help with weight loss, thanks to its catechins. If you’re worried about fat, then this tea also helps stop the formation of new fat cells.

Rooibos Tea

While not made from tea leaves, this South African tea is naturally sweet, has no caffeine, and is low in calories. If that wasn’t enough, it contains the Bioflavonoid Aspalathin. This does everything from reduce hunger, to lower blood pressure, and fight Type 2 diabetes. It’s a drink that works hard.

Watch What You Add

Tea on its own can be a naturally healthy and low-calorie drink. However, the danger lies in adding sugars and syrups, or too much milk to your tea. This can drastically increase the calories and work against your weight loss goals. As such, try to keep it natural.
