Green Tea May Help You Lose Belly Fat

Looking for the full scoop on green tea and its ability to help reduce belly fat? Well pour yourself a nice strong cup and then sit back down to read why this relaxing beverage has been shown to help reduce fat in the belly area.

Studies are indicating that it is indeed true. Simply sipping green tea daily can help you to lose weight and reduce that hard to lose belly fat.

Why this specific beverage? All of the teas made from the Camellia sinensis plant contain catechins. However, there is a large difference in the amount of catechins within them and it is green tea which maintains the highest catechin content once it is processed for our use.

It is this high catechin content which is believed to be the reason why it is the most efficient tea for aiding weight loss. Even better news is the fact that catechins are super antioxidants and this means that you not only lose weight by consuming them but you also keep your body healthier too.

The Research Says it is True

The first significant study on the effects of green tea and weight loss was conducted on a group of men and the results showed that belly fat did indeed reduce in the men who were given a rich infusion of green tea each day, compared with men who were given a lesser amount. Further studies are backing up the results of these early studies.

The studies were done using men as the subjects but green tea is proving to reduce belly fat in the men and women who drink it on regular basis. This beverage does indeed encourage a loss of belly fat in individuals who consume about 690 mg of green tea catechins per day. This is the equivalent of about five cups daily.

So to see weight loss results you would have to sip about 5 cups daily. An added bonus to this relaxing weight loss method is the fact that green tea is also loaded with antioxidants so without ever having to break a sweat you will be getting healthier as you lose weight.

White Green And Black Tea Leaves Are All Acquired From The Cemellia Sinensis Plant

The Catechins Make You Lose Belly Fat

Drinking five cups of green tea per day may actually reduce the amount of belly fat that we carry around on us. It is actually the catechins within green tea which are believed to be responsible for this loss of belly fat.

Most teas, other than herbal tea, basically begin the same way. Black tea, green tea, white tea and Oolong tea are all created from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference in these teas lies in how they are processed for our use. How the tea is processed is how it is decided whether a tea will be classified as black, green, white, or oolong.

A Research Study Says it is True

The results of a 12 week double blind study involving Japanese men who drank green tea over a twelve week period came to the startling conclusion that a daily consumption of green tea with 690 mg catechins for a twelve week period actually reduces body fat within the belly region.

The exciting results lead to the conclusion that green tea could indeed be used as a successful tool in the fight against obesity. But don't think of green tea as the ultimate weight loss tool and dash out to buy yourself a bottle of advertised "Super Duper Green Tea Diet Pills".

Further studies have shown that those individuals who drink green tea throughout the day actually have a better weight loss result than those individuals who take green tea in a pill form. These studies also showed that it was a combination of exercise and green tea which produced the greatest results.

Note also that the caffeinated green tea worked better than the non caffeinated green tea for reducing belly fat in men who consumed it on a daily basis.

So if you want to lose a little of your extra belly fat in your next healthy weight loss program then you may want to include the addition of green tea into your diet plan. Put your feet up, sip a cup of green tea, and lose your belly fat while you do it.

Cinnamon or a Slice of Fruit to Add Flavor to Your Tea

So Why Do Men Lose Belly Fat When They Drink Green Tea?

It is actually the catechins which are believed to help so tremendously in the reduction of belly fat in the men who participated in the study. Catechins are plant polyphenols or Tannins. They are the ingredient that causes the bitter or tart taste in a strong cup of tea or a glass of wine.

Catechins are also powerful antioxidants which are extremely efficient in combining with the free radicals within the human body. In reducing the free radical activity within the body antioxidants can help to improve your health, and perhaps even your longevity. The catechins speed up your body's fat burning capability and they are extremely high in green tea. Associated with weight loss they are particularly noted for being beneficial in the loss of the all too difficult to lose belly fat.

Sampling of Catechin Levels In Foods Per 100G:

Green Tea - 10-80 Chocolate - 46-61 Beans - 35-55 Black Tea - 6-50 Strawberries - 2-50 Red Raspberries - 2-48 Apples - 10-43 Red Wine - 8-30

Apricot - 10-25 Cherries - 5-22 Grapes - 3-17.5 Peaches - 5-14

Oxidation is Why it Aides Your Body in Burning Fat

But Does it Actually Work?

Black tea is fermented during its drying process which causes much of the Catechin in it to be lost during it's processing. Green tea is processed differently than black and because the leaves are not fermented during processing they successfully retain their high Catechin values.

It contains approximately 28mg to 42mg of Catechins per cup and it is estimated that approximately five cups of green tea consumed daily would be enough to achieve a noticeable weight loss after a three month period. If previous studies are accurate than yes consuming large sums of this beverage daily should help you lose a little of that annoying belly fat.

Green tea contains one of the highest amount of Catechins available in a tea and so is one of the best to consume if you are looking for something to help with your weight loss goals.

Do You Drink Green Tea?

I Firmly Believe in Limitation in All Things But a Cup or Two of Tea is a Definite Yes in my Books.

 Pour a cup today. It's good for you.

It May Help You Lose That Extra Belly Fat

If you have belly fat and are unsure how to lose it then green tea may indeed be able to help you out. It is not a cure all for your tubby tummy woes but it may help you burn your belly fat faster and its health benefits increase your overall well being.

If you are a man attempting to lose a little of your excess belly fat or a woman with a little too much stomach fat poking out of your blue jeans, start sipping a nice hot cup of tea 5 times a day.

You are still going to have to exercise a bit more to receive the ultimate affects of belly fat loss from green tea, but what the heck, it is definitely the perfect time to start. You can look like you do now three months from now, or you can create yourself a healthy weight loss program, and look a whole lot better three months from now. Pour yourself a nice hot cup of green tea and think it over.

Green tea also has antibacterial properties. You can use it to clean your house.

What is Your Favorite Hot Beverage?

Nell Rose from England on July 13, 2020:

My belly is so fat these days I think I need to drink the five cups a day in one go! lol! Great information, now to try it!

Barbara Tremblay Cipak from Toronto, Canada on July 12, 2018:

Lorelei, I had no idea that black tea was fermented, that may explain why I find it helpful for my condition? I started drinking it not too long ago. I've always been a green tea fan, and also drink a number of other types of tea as well. I find green tea soothing, I actually enjoy the taste of Tim Horton's green tea much more than their coffee.

sujan100 on June 02, 2018:

Thanks for your nice writing

debra1026 on July 27, 2014:

That's right, it keeps you young and healthy too, I love having Green tea everyday home with my mom or while reading my books,..

love love love,,

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 03, 2014:

@David Stone1: The benefit of green tea is that it is loaded with antioxidants so its weight loss aspect is an added benefit to its already great qualities. It helps you to burn off the calories faster.

David Stone from New York City on July 03, 2014:

Sometimes, but not often, certainly not for weight loss because weight loss alone doesn't mean much. Weight loss in conjunction with muscle development and/or flexibility matters. Without the rest of the bargain, weight loss is just esthetic. It makes you look better without making you actually better.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 02, 2014:

@Niktravelfit: I am putting myself back into the habit again too. I find that in summer I tend to switch more to water so have to remind myself to have my cups of green tea as well.

Niktravelfit on June 29, 2014:

Probably only the thing that is even better for you than water. I need to drink more green tea. Great lens, thanks for sharing.

TapIn2U on June 15, 2014:

I love green tea and I drink it at least 3x a day. Love its health benefits. Relaxing, too! Fantastic lens! Sundae ;-)

ShoeRack on January 06, 2014:

Green Tea contains antioxidant which according to a research is 95 times more effective than vitamin-C and 30 times better than vitamin-E.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on October 02, 2013:

@josietook: I think antioxidant rich foods are really great for virtually all health issues. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on October 02, 2013:

@Snakesmum: There are some wonderful mild blends of green tea too so shop around till you find a favorite. To brew it properly do not pour boiling water over the green tea. Wait till the water cools for a minute or two and then pop your green tea into the pot. It is less bitter this way.

Snakesmum on July 29, 2013:

Sounds as if I'll have to get myself some green tea - it sure sounds better than liposuction! :-)

josietook on July 29, 2013:

I hear decaffeinated green tea is also great for endometriosis which I suffer from, great lens

ChanKaMun on July 08, 2013:

Drinking tea is a very good habit. Especially if it's a green tea. Keep you young and healthy.

Jason Sositko on June 07, 2013:

I have always been mainly a coffee drinker, but I did not realize the varieties of tea available in bag form, so I have been trying them out the last few months. I still like my coffee in the morning, but honey lemon green tea, and Earl Gray tea are things I like during the day.

anonymous on May 25, 2013:

We enjoy green tea, but I've heard too much caffeine can be a problem for people with high blood pressure. Always better to buy organic too. I usually get a caffeine withdrawal headache when I stop drinking caffeine.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on May 19, 2013:

Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed how my tea article was written.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on May 19, 2013:

@LynetteBell: Me too. I usually like to make a pot of green tea in the afternoon and then add in either a regular tea bag or a herbal tea bag to give the pot a nice flavor boost.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on May 19, 2013:

@anonymous: The participants of the studies were measured and the placebo group did not lose weight while those given the green tea loaded with a strong amount catechins saw their waist lines decrease. The catechins do help to metabolize fat quicker and there is a fact base to green tea helping with belly fat loss.

LynetteBell from Christchurch, New Zealand on May 14, 2013:

I enjoy a cup of green tea:)

anonymous on April 30, 2013:

I think if these people are "losing weight" from drinking 5 cups of tea a day, it's most likely just water weight. Of course your stomach would look "flatter" if you were not as bloated. I doubt very much that these people are actually losing belly fat. I don't see anywhere in the studies where they actually measure body fat differences, either with calipers or the water immersion. This is probably as magical as losing about 8 pounds and then nothing more when going on the carb free diet.

It would be nice if it were true, but I've never come across anyone with dramatic weight loss who declared they achieved it by drinking green tea. And green tea has been around forever, it's not like it's a new discovery.

Anyone who achieves actual weight loss by ingesting green tea has probably also improved their diet, or started exercising harder.

If there were magical ways to lose weight, nobody would need to.

geosum on April 16, 2013:

I've been on a low carb diet for 7 months and have gone from morbid obesity to overweight. There's still some belly fat to get rid of. Guess I'll give it a try.

blanchella on April 16, 2013:

Yes, I drink green tea since I know is very effective to help you burn fat and it also has anti aging benefits. Skin care products containing green tea are amazing to delay aging skin too.

anonymous on April 10, 2013:

I have grown to absolutely love my organic green tea. I found I didn't like it hot, warm was much better and slightly warm even better then that. So every morning I boil a full kettle of water steep 4

Bags in it and let it cool and after lunch I start drinking the tea usually 5-6 throughout the day..I also use green tea in my smoothies rather then fruit juice..green tea is worth drinking no matter how u drink it!

Debbie from England on April 08, 2013:

Unfortunately I don't like the taste of tea of any description. Poddys does and drinks it regularly... don't think it's working it's magic on his belly fat though LOL!!

Paladins on March 25, 2013:

This is one of the best lenses I have seen on Squidoo. Very informative and packed full of interesting information. Thank you.

DuaneJ on March 24, 2013:

I drink about three cups of green tea everyday, as it is a good antioxidant. But I'm thin. I only hope it isn't keeping me from putting on weight!

JeffGilbert on March 06, 2013:

This is a very informative lens on green tea. I thought that green tea was a rare and exotic thing and now I see it's just how it's made and it catechins that make you lose the fat. Great lens!!!

anonymous on March 04, 2013:

@Lady Lorelei: I do the same thing.....I add things like cinnamon and real vanilla or mix another tea with it....I can have a different flavor of green tea any time I want ! I tried apple cinnamon herbal tea and green tea together....it was great ! So many options to make it taste more enjoyable if you don't like it plain !

anonymous on March 04, 2013:

Try green tea with a bit of cinnamon in it ! Cinnamon is supposed to level out blood sugar. I drink green tea and eat clean and healthy, and low GI using only healthy fats in moderate amounts and I lose weight pretty fast. You can also add a tiny bit of Real vanilla to it and it tastes so amazing...you can even go without any sweetener. I could drink it like this all day its so good ! Try it !

uneasywriter lm on February 14, 2013:

I love Green Tea. I knew it was great for antioxidants, but to reduce belly fat. I think, I will raise my daily dosage. Thanks!

June Nash on January 28, 2013:

I am drinking a cup of tea now. It is not green tea though. I will try to drink more green tea, but I like the flavor of the black tea more.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on January 25, 2013:

@SteveKaye: You look healthy too. Green tea has anti aging properties and they really do help. I am just preparing myself a pot of green tea as well. I have not had any for a couple days so it is definitely time.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on January 25, 2013:

@Gypzeerose: To make your green tea less bitter tasting add a bag of herbal tea in with your green tea. Also never pour boiling water over your green tea. Allow the water to cool slightly and then add in your green tea.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on January 25, 2013:

@anonymous: That would be a very good idea. Soda is really not a very healthy drink.

anonymous on January 24, 2013:

This is great information on how green tea can help you with weight loss. I think that I may switch my sodas to green tea. Thank you.

Rose Jones on January 05, 2013:

I don't like green tea. :( But I will drink it if I can lose the belly. Nice lens I liked learning - that green tea is healthier because it retains its high Catechin values - now I know what the healthy stuff is. Blessed and out by digg and pinterest. :)

SteveKaye on December 28, 2012:

Yes, I really like Green Tea. I drink a pot almost every day. Yum.

LiliLove on December 19, 2012:

Great lens! I drink two cups of green tea every day in stead of coffee. I do believe it helped me to loose baby fat after both of my pregnancies.

FatLossDiva on December 11, 2012:

Great lens. Very informative! The iced tea really is very refreshing.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on November 19, 2012:

@intermarks: Green tea has many health benefits and when it comes to cholesterol I have heard it is much better for you than coffee. I wish good luck for you as well.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on November 19, 2012:

@FarvyB LM: Green tea really does make you feel healthier. It has a very high antioxidant content and that really helps to improve your overall well being.

@siserou: I have a fancy to teapots and love a nice hot cup of tea as well. I like to add a bag of green tea into the herbal tea.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on October 07, 2012:

I was just thinking of having a cup of green tea.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 23, 2012:

@anonymous: I like to drink at least one cup of green tea a day too, but try to have at least 3 teacups worth. Today I did really well and upped my intake to almost a full pot.

siserou on September 18, 2012:

This is a really pretty page with the teacups and teapots. In fact, I love tea and never have enough selections in the pantry.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 18, 2012:

@srsddn lm: I know that I have a habit of falling into the coffee first thing in the morning whereas the green tea is so much healthier. I really do need to keep myself on track. This morning I am drinking a pot of green tea rather than my usual morning coffee. Getting some antioxidants into me.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 18, 2012:

I just poured a cup of green tea and am starting work. I find that green tea also provides additional energy which could be because of it's high antioxidant content. It is good for us.

Brian Stephens from France on September 17, 2012:

It's good to hear about the benefits of green tea, all I need to do now is start drinking it instead of normal tea. I easily drink 5 cups of tea a day, but alas, so far the wrong sort. Time for a big switch I think.

srsddn lm on September 13, 2012:

I have recently started drinking green tea. Your lens has further motivated me and I hope to get positive results in coming months. Thanks for sharing.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 09, 2012:

@sheilamarie78: Green tea is indeed very healthy.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 09, 2012:

@sukkran trichy: Thank you Sukkran. Because I suffer from a chronic illness I have researched a lot of medical subjects to try to increase my health. I think it has worked very well thank goodness.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on September 09, 2012:

@DarrenVeronica: Yes I need to drink my morning coffee to give me the jolt in the morning but I try to drink at least a cup or two of green tea in the afternoons.

DarrenVeronica on September 07, 2012:

I love green tea, more so than black tea. Although I have to have my daily coffee too! Amazing how good green tea is for us. Large population studies in Asia show that those who drink the most green tea every day are less likely to die from heart disease and cancer. Pretty powerful benefits for a cup of tea!

sukkran trichy from Trichy/Tamil Nadu on September 06, 2012:

i am a green tea drinker. it is familiar for its nutrients and health benefits. thanks for sharing some useful info. i love your health related articles.

Sheilamarie from British Columbia on September 01, 2012:

I mostly drink black tea, but will increase my green tea consumption now that I know of its benefits. Helpful lens!

@Coffeebreak9am: I make my husband the iced tea too. It is a very refreshing and healthy drink in the summer months.

I started drinking green tea about 4 months ago on a regular basis. I feel more energized. I've combined green tea and p90x

I started drinking green tea about 18 months ago and feel better for it. Thanks for a very informative lens.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on August 19, 2012:

@Wednesday-Elf: Quitting smoking is bad for weight gain alright. I think I put on 40 pounds when I quit smoking. Where it comes to green tea I just have to rid myself of my coffee habit and switch over to green tea on a more permanent basis. It is the much healthier beverage.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on August 19, 2012:

@GeorgeneMBramlage: Last month I picked up an organic green tea from our drugstore and it was so good that I went back yesterday and picked up 2 more boxes. It is very mild and tastes almost like white tea rather than green. Yummy and very refreshing.

Georgene Moizuk Bramlage from southwestern Virginia on August 16, 2012:

Yes and I love it! My favorite is green tea with mint; Panera does a neat green iced tea that I also like. Good-looking and informative lens...thanks a million!

Wednesday-Elf from Savannah, Georgia on August 16, 2012:

You convinced me on the benefits of drinking green tea just half-way through reading this lens, so by the time I arrived at the guestbook I had already brewed a cup of green tea! I definitely need anything that will help me lose this terrible belly fat that suddenly arrived with unwanted weight gain after I quit smoking in January!

intermarks on August 16, 2012:

Yes, I did. I am having high cholesterol and since Green Tea can also reduce LDL and total cholesterol, I am now having it almost everyday. Hopefully my cholesterol level will back to normal

anonymous on August 14, 2012:

Not as much as I would like to... Need to make it a point to drink at least one cup per day! Thanks for sharing this great info!

evannecarter on August 10, 2012:

Yes- but not on a regular basis. I love the refreshing taste. Thanks for the info

Carol Fisher from Warminster, Wiltshire, UK on August 07, 2012:

I don't drink green tea regularly. Being English, I drink ordinary tea all the time.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on August 06, 2012:

@anonymous: I don't know what the best time is but you should drink 5 cups a day of the caffeinated green tea. I read that non caffeinated green tea does not work as well at helping to reduce belly fat. When I get with the program and follow the program I do feel the difference both in my health and in the strength of my stomach muscles so there is some fact behind the of green tea and belly fat loss. Best of wishes for your success.

anonymous on August 03, 2012:

i haven't tried it before, but now.. im going to drink green tea to lose my belly fat.. tired of doing sit ups already .. it really doesn't work for me.. can i ask what is the best time to drink green tea? thanks for this info..

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 27, 2012:

@anonymous: I need my coffee in the morning to jolt me awake but I also try to sip at least a cup of two of green tea throughout the day as well. I probably do not drink enough green tea each day though to reduce my belly fat.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 23, 2012:

@anonymous: Green tea is loaded with antioxidants so it is wonderful for your health as well as your weight.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 23, 2012:

@Diva2Mom: I have never used the green tea macha but it is on my list to try. I recently bought a new brand of organic green tea and it is very delicate. I am really enjoying it.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 23, 2012:

@fathomblueEG: You are like me - you like to blend your green tea with other flavors to give it a little more flavor. I really enjoy using one bag of flavored herb tea and one bag of green tea in the teapot.

fathomblueEG on July 16, 2012:

I love lemonade and teas. I especially love green and white tea with spearmint tea and a touch of honey. Super special blend and completely soothing to drink at the end of a stressful day.

Diva2Mom on July 13, 2012:

I love Matcha Green tea, and it has really helped me a lot being a mom of 7. I have more energy, and for some reason, I feel good and healthy. Love the fact that it's an antioxidant drink in comparison to coffee. Thanks for this great lens and God bless.

anonymous on July 09, 2012:

At the moment I only drink water, but I had heard before about green tea. I believe Dr. Oz is in favor of drinking green tea and recommends it on his tv show. I have yet to try it, but I tend to carry my excess weight everywhere rather than just on the belly. Still, couldn't hurt to try it, right?

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 08, 2012:

@Lee Hansen: I like to combine herbal tea and green tea together in the pot. Some green tea can taste grassy so popping in a flavored herbal tea reduces this and gives the pot of tea a really nice overall flavor.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 08, 2012:

@pawpaw911: I find that in the summertime I have to remind myself to drink a couple of green tea or I wind up simply sipping water or juice throughout the day.

pawpaw911 on July 05, 2012:

Very interesting. I might have to give it a try. I like tea, but drink coffee too.

Lee Hansen from Vermont on July 02, 2012:

I love coffee but I also enjoy herbal and green tea. I will suggest this green tea to my hubby!

ArthurF LM on July 01, 2012:

My wife is Chinese and she drinks green tea on a daily basis. It's probbably much better then the coffee I have every morning with cream and sugar.

@vinodkpillai lm: I know that I feel much healthier when I am drinking my 3 to 5 cups of green tea daily. I was doing very well there for quite awhile but then I get lazy and fall off the wagon. Time to put the tea kettle on again and pull the green tea out of the cupboard.

Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on June 28, 2012:

@OrganicMom247: Green tea really is a nice relaxing way to tighten the belly area a little. So much easier than situps.

OrganicMom247 on June 28, 2012:

Thanks for sharing this information about green tea. Glad to know that as simple as drinking green tea can help in losing weight.

vinodkpillai lm on June 21, 2012:

I usually have three to four cups of green tea daily. After this lens I will obviously increase it to five! Thanks for putting all this together - I have definitely benefited!

KimGiancaterino on June 20, 2012:

Tea is my favorite, and I really should drink more of it.

Camden1 on June 13, 2012:

I usually have one cup of green tea a day, but I think I'll up that to 5 and see if it helps. Great information!

klouisparks on June 12, 2012:

I tried green tea as part of my diet and it really does work! Nice Lens! :)

Green tea.Nice lens .

WinWriter on June 01, 2012:

Although I love coffee, it's been upsetting my stomach lately. I do like tea and tend to buy Chai tea. I need to get some green tea though because, as you pointed out, the benefits are very encouraging for weight loss.

Peggy Hazelwood from Desert Southwest, U.S.A. on May 28, 2012:

I love coffee. Tea? Not so much. Root beer floats are wonderful once in a while! ;o)

Joan Haines on May 28, 2012:

Green tea is one of my favorites, fortunately.

Michey LM on May 20, 2012:

Coffee and green tea. I drink a green tea at breakfast and 2- coffees throughout the day... i am lot drinking more then one green tea per day as I need my sleep at night, so how somebody manage to drink 3-4 tea cups per day?

Itaya Lightbourne from Topeka, KS on May 19, 2012:

Green tea is something I drink all day long! My husband recently discovered that he started dropping more weight when he drank green tea throughout the day. I totally believe this article and it is a very good article at that. :)

sallypmoore on May 12, 2012:

I just started drinking Green tea and I notice my cravings have gone already, big thumbs up! Thanks for the article.
