Green tea promotes weight loss

The catechins in green tea can help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism, increasing the rate of heat production and fat oxidation.

In fact, I've read that drinking 4 cups of green tea burns the equivalent of 50 calories—which adds up to 350 calories per week.

Not bad for a humble leaf.

Imagine how many calories you'd burn just walking to the bus stop if you lived in Tiger Leaping Gorge.
