      What drinking time does green tea increase Fat Burning?

      green tea extract has been repeatedly linked to increased fat burning, especially during exercise.
      In one study, men who took green tea extract before exercise burned 17% more fat than men who didn’t take the supplement. The study suggests that green tea can boost the fat-burning effects of exercise 

      An eight-week study determined that tea catechins increased fat burning, both during exercise and rest.
      Several other studies confirm these findings, indicating that EGCG boosts the burning of fat which may lead to reduced body fat in the long term

      Green Tea Can Help You Lose Fat, Especially Harmful Abdominal Fat
      When it comes to actual pounds lost, the effects of green tea are relatively modest.
      Two reviews of many controlled trials on green tea supplements found that people lost about 3 pounds (1.3 kg) on average 
      Keep in mind that not all fat is the same. 
      Subcutaneous fat lodges under your skin, but you may also have significant amounts of visceral fat, also called belly fat.
      High amounts of visceral fat are associated with inflammation and insulin resistance, both of which are strongly linked to several serious diseases, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

      Several studies on green tea catechins show that although the weight loss effects are modest, a significant percentage of fat lost is harmful visceral fat.
      Therefore, green tea should reduce your risk of many major diseases down the line, which may lead to a longer and healthier life.

      The right way to prepare green tea and make it healthier 

      Green tea is healthy. But if you want to maximize the positive effects of green tea, and make it taste better at the same time then here are a few things you can do.
      The water you use for green tea should not be too hot or too cold. Water that is between 160 and 180 degrees is the best.

      Do not steep green tea for more than 2-3 minutes. Less time will prevent the tea leaves from releasing their flavour while more time will make your tea bitter.
      Adding 2 grams of tea leaves to 177 ml of water is the right ratio to make a healthy and tasty cup of tea.
      You can add some mint leaves, lemon juice, and a teaspoon of honey to your green tea to improve its taste.

      How much green tea should you drink for weight loss?

      Drinking 2 to 3 cups of green tea in one day is sufficient for supplementing weight loss, recommends a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Centre. The exact amount will vary from person to person depending upon their natural metabolism.

      The best time and the worst time to drink green tea for weight loss

      To reap maximum health benefits from green tea, it is important to have it at the right time. Studies suggest that the best time to drink green tea is in the morning and before the workout session. Swapping your cup of coffee with green tea is the best way to kick-start your day. Like coffee, green tea also contains some amount of caffeine and L-theanine. Both of them together can help to improve your mood and enhance your concentration level.
      If your motive is to burn fat then, drinking green tea before your workout session is the best for you. Several studies suggest that doing this may increase the fat-burning process during the workout
      Drinking green tea after your meal and at night is the worst of all. There are different types of compounds found in green tea, which can bind with the minerals present in the food and can block their absorption in the body. Iron, copper, and chromium are some minerals that might not get absorbed by the body if you drink green tea immediately after your meal.

      Sipping a warm cup of tea before going to bed might seem like a nice idea, but it is not. Again the caffeine content in the green tea might make it difficult for you to fall asleep. It might also lead to anxiety, high blood pressure, and nervousness.

      Can You Put Sugar in Green Tea When Trying to Lose Weight?

      If you're taking green tea for weight loss, then it's best to avoid adding sugar to your green tea.
      However, it is fair to say that if you want to lose weight with any drink, then do not add sugar anyway, and those who are dieting veterans will doubtless already be aware of the extra calories this can add – certainly when using sugar cane sugar. 

      Green tea is rich in caffeine and antioxidants. These rich elements combined with a clean diet and a cardio routine can work miracles in your weight loss journey. 
      Simply put, when you put sugar in, it simply adds up the calories.
      Sugar is an ongoing culprit for weight gain and obesity. 
      Even if you add one teaspoon of sugar to a cup of green tea, it adds up to around 16 calories per cup – depending on how big your spoonful is!

      Now assume you take 4-5 cups of green tea with sugar daily. This could total to a good amount of calories – excluding the other things you eat/drink.
      This amount of calories can make a dent in any weight loss regime. So about sweetening your green tea, perhaps it’s a good thing that sugar is optional.
