Choose Best tea type:

Studies have shown that green tea is the best type in terms of interest. It’s true that you may not like its taste, but it’s still possible to use other kinds of good-flavored of green tea, which you like much. From those kinds we set:

  • Green tea: According to research you have to choose the green tea which contains high rate of caffeine, because a higher percentage of this last helps best in weight loss.
  • Herbal tea: You can also use herbal teas, which come in a variety of delicious flavors. Also, you can use them at night to get the right calm.
  • Red or Black Tea: Its one of the most famous kinds of tea. Not only that, but there are some people who name it green tea too because of its benefit. However, green tea stays the best.
  • Although you can obtain black tea in the form of caffeine-free, we recommend you to use the tea, which contains caffeine because it gives better results in weight loss, unless you suffer from insomnia.

Use tea in moderation:

You have to be careful while using tea into your eating system or even your diet, because using it more than it should, can be harmful and even useless. Moreover, to avoid the feeling of indisposition and vomiting, you have to choose the right time to take your cup of tea.
