Post by RightEatingHabits.com – Getting rid of belly fat or unsightly abdominal fat may seem like an impossible task, but there is one simple way which can help to stimulate your body to burn belly fat fast.
Make yourself a cup of brewed green tea or matcha green tea as part of your morning ritual every day. Green tea is one of 27 foods to lose belly fat recommended by health and medical website, WebMD.
Matcha green tea – antioxidant-rich tea that helps you burn belly fat fast
Matcha green tea is fine green tea powder made from stone ground tea leaves. Unlike brewed green tea where the green tea leaves are steeped in hot water for a few minutes, you are ingesting the whole tea leaves when you make your tea using matcha green tea powder.
3 good reasons why you should drink more green tea?
- Green tea is a powerful source of health-boosting antioxidants
Green tea is the least processed of all teas and contains the most antioxidants called polyphenols among all tea leaves, of which catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) are the most abundant. EGCG is an antioxidant that gives green tea its fat-burning power.
- Green tea has zero calories if you drink it neat
No matter how much green tea you drink, you will not gain weight and pile on excess belly fat because green tea has zero calories. But you should drink matcha green tea as it is – without any embellishments.
However, for a more interesting brew, you can make a matcha green tea latte (note: using only low-fat hot milk) or matcha almond tea with almond milk.
- Green tea protects the body from numerous diseases
Research shows that catechins and EGCG in green tea have powerful anti-cancer benefits and protective effects against bad cholesterol, prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer and even, Alzheimer’s disease.
According to a Reader’s Digest publication “Supercharge Your Health”, men who drank three cups of green tea a day were 73% less likely to develop prostate cancer.
And as reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2011, a research study involving over 1,100 participants showed that those who drank higher levels of green tea have significantly lower cholesterol levels. Catechins present in the green tea decrease the body’s absorption of cholesterol.
Drinking more matcha green tea and these other tips can help you start losing belly fat and burn belly fat fast.
Making a cup of matcha green tea is easy. Simply mix the matcha green tea powder in hot water.
Or, add some low-fat steamed hot milk or almond milk to enhance flavour and for added nutrients.
