6 Ways Tea Can Help You Lose Weight
1. Get Active
If you are not a morning person, mornings aren’t easy. You might think that coffee is the best when it comes to waking up in the morning, giving you that instant buzz to wake your brain up from slumber.
However benefits that coffee has, it still has some negative side-effects, especially if you are already feeling jittery and anxious.
If you are like that, the best, safest way is to grab a cup of tea instead. Luckily, tea naturally contains caffeine, which helps you wake up and get some energy to tackle your day. The more you move, the more calories you burn, so get going!

2. Go with the Flow
A natural diuretic, Tea can help increase the passing of urine. This will help eliminate water retention, which makes you seem like you aren’t losing any weight (but really it’s just “water weight”). This condition is also common in older adults, and tea can help them flush out sodium and excess water.
The following conditions may result in fluid retention:
- high blood pressure
- kidney dysfunction
- kidney stones
- tissue swelling
- congestive heart failure
If you have these conditions, why not try out natural diuretic first?

3. Fight Free Radicals
Free radicals are everywhere around us. You can find them from food to sunlight to your body’s natural processes. Even diet and stress can contribute to free radicals as well. In the long run, they can break down your cells which can result in myriad diseases ranging from dementia to cataracts to cancer.

4. Quell aches and pains
The aforementioned antioxidants in tea also aid in reducing inflammation. Inflammation is not bad per se, as it's your body's protective response to injury or damage. The problem starts when the body gets chronically inflamed, and for that tea can help.
Tea can also help you recover from workouts faster, making you more likely to keep up the routine.

5. Boost metabolism
Many studies have shown that tea may helps in burning calories quicker. Tea stimulates the production of short-chain fatty acids in the gut, which has been proven to boost one’s metabolic rate.
How does it work? Certain types of tea can quickly reset your internal temperature that causes it to increase metabolism and results in weight loss by up to 10%, without exercising and dieting.

6. Have a Treat
When you find that one tea that perfectly suits you, reach for that instead of the calorie-laden snack when your stomach starts growling. Without milk and sugar (which, if you are drinking a good quality tea you shouldn’t need) tea contains virtually no calories. That’s a healthy fill-up!
