HEALTH: Teas that melt fat fast

Long grueling workouts and restrictive
diets suck. Instead of driving yourself crazy, sip something that fries
flab for you. While tea is indeed soothing, it’s also unassumingly
strong. Some brews can help you stop snacking, while others can boost
your calorie burn. However, others varieties are so mighty that they can
even melt the flab right off your frame. Just sit back, start sipping
and watch your fat melt away!
White tea: Brands such
as Twinings, The Republic of Tea, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime
work in four ways to help you shed that pesky flab. White tea blocks the
formation of new fat cells, while simultaneously boosting lipolysis,
the body’s process of breaking down stored fats. The tea is also a rich
source of catechins, a type of antioxidant that triggers the release of
fat from the cells and helps speed the liver’s ability to turn fat into
Barberry: Brands include
TerraVita and TeaHaven. The stem, fruit and root bark of the barberry
shrub contains berberine, a powerful, naturally occurring, fat-frying
chemical. Berberine can prevent weight gain and the development of
insulin resistance. Consuming the plant can boost energy expenditure and
help decrease the number of receptors on the surface of fat cells,
making them less apt to absorb incoming sources of flubber.
Brands include Celestial Seasonings and Teavana. This red, naturally
sweet tea made from the leaves of the Rooibos bush is a powerful
fat-melter. Polyphenols and flavonoids found in the plant inhibit
adipogenesis (the formation of new fat cells) by as much as 22 per cent.
The chemicals also help aid fat metabolism.
Pu-erh tea: Brands
include Numi Organic Tea and Uncle Lee’s Tea. This fermented Chinese tea
can literally shrink the size of your fat cells! This tea significantly
lowers triglyceride concentrations (potentially dangerous fat found in
the blood) and belly fat.
