      Green tea is great, but mainly for health reasons other than losing weight. It is a healthy alternative to coffee and has loads of antioxidants that help rid your body of toxins (which is probably where the weight loss myth comes in). It is very, very healthy but isn't a legit way to lose a bunch of weight. The only way to do that is eating right and getting at least some exercise in a few days a week.

      Not enough evidence to suggest there are or aren't benefits for weight loss.

      Sustained caloric deficit remains the most important factor for weight loss.

      I don't know about weight, but Gree Tea is one of the known powerful antioxidants, so it is good to consume it on a regular basis. As for weight loss, read this hub:

    Green tea has been proven to have several connections in the area of weight loss. It helps to speed up up the metabolism causing the body to use up more calories, it helps to keep the body from storing calories as fat, and can help suppress the appetite. Green tea and losing weight is also made easier by the fact that green tea is naturally calorie-free itself.

    So,guys start having green tea to loose weight.

      While I don't think green tea has the power to activate weight loss, it does however act as an aide to calming the system and there fore your desire to eat more is controlled, I myself drink green tea and I have found that is does act as a appitate supressant and when I don't drink it I eat more, course my 'diet' is very wholesome with little fat and carbs - so I don't really worry.

      Green tea gives me heartburn.

      To answer your question, it does not raise the metabolic rate enough to produce immediate weight loss, but a green tea extract containing polyphenols and caffeine has been shown to induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate. 

      If you want to lose weight, get off the computer and go for a walk.  Exercise works better than anything else for weight loss and control.

      Green tea is beneficial as it improves the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. Ideally green tea should be consumed an hour after lunch and not on empty stomach. This will increase its efficacy and also prevent heartburn

      I agree. Green tea is one of the best antioxidant. As what I've known all kinds of tea will be best taken during mealtime. As to prevent stomach upset/heartburn.

      sure, there have been numerous studies in US and abroad that show the beneficial use of green tea for weight loss. Basically, it is an antioxidant and helps to keep you fuller (water weight) and keeps you from drinking soda or some other unhealthy beverage. Fruit drinks at night are not good & will add calories, while green tea will add extremely little to no calories.

      Yes! Especially if you put lots of cream and sugar in it and drink it at least 3 times a day! big_smile 
      You think, I am kidding? Not at all! I saw plenty of people who are not eating properly, drink a lot of healthy teas with cream and sugar and expect to lose weight. Not going to happen, sorry.

      I know this is a late post so I don't know if it's relevant. I agree with some of the posts and some I don't agree with. In a situation like this it also has to do with what works for your body. I've been doing 5 cups of green tea a day for months and it has impacted my weight loss. It does boost your metabolism and it's full of anti-oxidants that kill free radical cells. I drink a hot green tea after meals and a iced green tea twice a day in between meals. It represses your apetite so you don't dig into the chocolate or chips for a snack. Hot green tea helps keep the fat your eating from coagulating and hardening and pushes it thru the body as a liquid so your not gathering additional fat. However you need to take a brisk 30 to 60 minute walk or a power bike ride and lift a couple of weights every day to really get a toned body and reduce fat. I believe that green tea is amazing and that is from personal experience. If your interested in vitamins, Health supplements, weight loss products that work or green cleaning supplies so you can remove toxins from your kitchen that also make you fat, message me. if your interested in clinically tested products that are inexpensive and healthy for body and the environment. I don't want to post a link and be a spammer. Peace

      I am 20+ and like any other girl I had weight issues. Not just that but I am also suffering from PCOS. The docs always suggested me to reduce my weight and follow healthy lifestyle. I tried n number of exercise but the result was not as desired. Then slowly I started drinking green tea, it was really hard to acquire the taste but then I started drinking green tea with camomile flavour. It not only helped me in reducing some fat but also improved my immune system. Dinking green tea does help a lot in weight loss but again you can’t keep hogging every time thinking that green tea will reduce whatever fat you intake.
