Fact: CHINA GREEN TEA can help you lose weight.
If you're a regular soda, juice, energy-drink or sweetened-coffee-and-tea drinker and you switch to unsweetened green tea, you could see some results in the long run. That's because the number one source of added sugar (and therefore, added calories) in the American diet is from sugar-sweetened beverages, so opting for a calorie-free alternative is always best. But if you're already sipping on water flavored with fresh fruit, sparkling water, unsweetened coffee and tea, or the occasional diet beverage, then chances are you'll have to do more than simply switch up your hydration habits to lose weight for the long-term.
Myth: Drinking green tea burns belly fat immediately.
Sadly, this one's super-false. Any time you change your diet to start a new plan in which you burn more energy than you consume, you'll likely "burn" off some additional fat mass (for many of us, that's stored around the tummy area, so you may notice a little tightening-up!). That said, not one single food or drink can "spot train" any body parts! Keep in mind that green tea beverages (like sugary lattes, sparkling green teas with added sugar, and green tea "flavored" drinks) are often still sugary beverages, which has been linked to weight gain over time (specifically, abdominal fat), so just make sure that you're choosing versions with "0g" of sugar and "0 calories" per serving.
