Can drinking black tea or coffee help reduce fat( weight)?
No - only eating less and exercising more will do that.
I'd read somewhere before that coffee actually hinders with weight loss. And I have found information to back that up online. http://diet.ivillage.com/issues/isnacks/...To be honest, I would say that the amount of milk in tea/coffee is so minimal that it's not worth worrying about. If you are not using it already, make the switch to skimmed milk. It's weird at first, but you gradually get used to it.
Green tea speeds up metabolism and helps burn fat
On its own it would not do anything and basically all tea and coffee are doing is keeping up your fluid content. As part of a healthy balanced diet then you could probably say it helps but as a proven fact no I dont think so. The only way to loose weight sensibly is to eat a healthy diet fruit, fish, salad etc and keep your fluid content up and take some form of exercise you enjoy walking, swimming, going to the gym.
They are both diuretics (make you pass more water), especialy tea so in the short term you may appear to lose weight but it's only fluid.
Drinking Coffee or strong tea temporarily increases your metabolic rate. runners use it before a road race in an attempt to bring their times down. But as a method for weight loss I don't think it is any good. Caffeine is a diuretic and rapid water loss without replacement is unhealthy. People have died from dehydration by absorbing too much caffeine.
No not on their own if you drink large volumes of either without milk then it can speed up your metabolic rate so therefore you do then burn off fat quicker. However it is only small and you would have to drink mountains of the stuff and that can make you very ill indeed.Safer way to get your metabolic rate working quicker is sensible low fat diet and regular exercises especially a 30 per day 5 days a week aerobic one.
They say green tea also can help toward speeding it up but tried that and it tastes pants to me.
The only way it might help is if drinking a cup of tea or coffee stops you eating instead. I often feel peckish but find that a cuppa takes the urge to eat away, so I've saved a few calories.
Try decaf tea and coffee to avoid taking on too much caffeine.
they say green tea helps burn fat. I drink it and its just like weak black tea. I believe you have to drink around 4 cups a day for this to work. It is also rich in anti-oxidants very good for you!
Nope not at all!
Green tea is abundant in polyphenol called catechins. cathecins is known to has anti cancer nature. Recent research also showed that catechins can lower body fat accumulation and cholesterol levels.Green tea will tremendously help burn calories, lower cholesterol and also lightly reduce body fat.
hi no not at all its doesn't help u at all but if u drink plenty of water and take some green tea without sugar will help u a lot
Not at all, no food or drink that you take in will in itself result in weight loss.However without wishing to seem impolite Type ' weight loss ' into the search for questions box and you will see the answers to the 20 questions like yours that clutter ' Answers ' every day, together with their standard answers.
Type in 鈥楢nswers swamped with weight loss questions!?鈥?to see what regular contributors think.I will cut and paste my stock answer, however it is interesting to see how close this is ( I have been using it for over 2 months), to a recent paper from University of California. They did a meta-analysis of all the work on weight loss over the past few years. ( summary) It showed that 2/3 of people who diet yo-yo to a higher weight, none of the faddy diets of diet pills work and that rapid weight loss doubles heart attack risk!They seemed to suggest the only hope was modest calorie reduction + EXERCISE.This is a news report of the article:
http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/health/...I have to admit I have a 'stock' answer for this question, since if you look it appears 20-30 times every day!Type 'guaranteed weight loss' into google, you will find 1 1/2 million sites!Look around you if ANY of these things worked would we be getting so overweight?We are what we eat, but we are at least as much what we don't do. Calorie intakes in 1900 and 1950 were higher than they are now, we just don't use them up!Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg.Take a healthy amount of exercise 30-40 minutes of vigorous exercise per day 4-5 days a week. I hate to think what percentage of the UK population does that 2%? 5%?I have seen hundreds of questions with this same pattern :- I am fat, tell me where on line I can get this super diet or herbal/dangerous/illegal drug that I hear will fix it for me in 10 minutes without the need for me to get off the couch!No fixes pal , less in more out, its the only way.
