How green tea benefits?
A cup of green tea contains less caffeine as compared to coffee. But still, it contains considerable amount of it to aid fat burning process and not get you addicted to caffeine.
In addition to caffeine, green tea also contains an excess of antioxidants called catechins, which hinders the storage of belly fat. It boosts up your metabolism, hence speeding up the weight loss process. It also helps increase the level of norepinephrine hormone in body which sends signal to fat cells to break down fat and release it in the bloodstream. This fat is then used as energy by the cells that need it, like building muscles.

To get the required amount of caffeine and antioxidants needed to reduce weight, you should drink around 2 to 3 cups of green tea a day. But remember, this should be taken in plain water, without any sweetener or cream. You can even go on to 5-6 Cups a day during your strict workout phases, and it will only benefit you.
