Lose weight with tea
Tea for weight loss can be an effective slimming agent with the right type of tea. Different types of tea have different effects on detoxification, desalination, stimulation of the metabolism, supply of minerals and fat burning.
Teas are almost calorie-free, but often contain numerous minerals and vitamins. In this way they help to purify and detoxify the body.
Procedure for losing weight with tea
An essential part of losing weight with tea is to drink as much of it as possible. One out of three main meals of the day should be replaced with half a liter of tea.
In addition, at least two more liters of tea should be drunk throughout the day. At least one cup of tea should be drunk about 30 to 60 minutes before the rest of the meals in order to achieve an earlier satiety effect.
The tea does not have to be made constantly, a large thermos can be prepared very well and drunk for several hours. This makes it easy to lose weight with tea in the office and at work.
Different types of tea are very suitable for this diet and you can change as you like. Certain types of tea such as ginger tea also have a stimulating effect on the metabolism, which increases calorie consumption, while nettle tea has a very good dehydrating effect.
How much can I lose weight with the diet?
One reads that losing weight with tea can shed half a kilogram of body weight every day. However, weight loss depends very much on your own body and the other main meals.
In order to lose as much weight as possible, the two meals should be low in fat and low in carbohydrates, but contain as much protein as possible and fill you up.
Sport also boosts fat burning and helps to reduce weight faster.

Popular teas for weight loss are matcha tea, which wakes you up and stimulates the metabolism, and green tea, which reduces food cravings. White tea has also been shown to have positive effects on fat metabolism and is suitable for weight loss.
In addition, there are numerous teas in which other positive effects are also in the foreground, for example St. John's wort tea is supposed to make you happy and can therefore help with a low motivation during the diet. Ginger diet detoxifies very well and supports the immune system, while oolong tea is considered an effective fat burner.
Green tea is ideal for losing weight on this diet, as it is particularly rich in minerals. Green tea reduces the stress hormone cortisol in the blood and has been shown to have a positive effect on weight loss.
Green tea stimulates the metabolism and increases the energy expenditure in the body.
One component of tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), is said to be effective against obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and premature aging. It also contains valuable flavonoids, quercetin and rutin.
Green tea contains bitter substances that satisfy the desire for sweets and thus counteract cravings.
White tea has a very mild taste and gets its name from the white fluff that surrounds the fresh, unopened tea buds. White tea contains a lot of polyphenols, counteracts free radicals in the body cells, thereby protecting the cell metabolism from destruction. This tea protects our tissue from destruction, degeneration and premature aging.
It has been proven that white tea has a positive effect on the breakdown of fat cells and inhibits the formation of new fat cells. It contains vitamin C, EGCG and caffeine, which stimulate the metabolism.
Saponins inhibit the absorption of fat in the intestine, manganese helps to keep connective tissue tight and bitter substances help against food cravings. Therefore, white tea is particularly suitable as a tea for weight loss.
Matcha tea is a noble variant of green tea. The Matcha powder comes from the ground leaves of certain types of green tea (Tencha) and is traditionally poured over 80 degrees of hot water and whipped with a bamboo whisk. There are ready-made powder in drugstores and supermarkets that are of course less expensive to prepare.
Matcha tea is considered a "super food" and a trend because it contains a special combination of caffeine and catechins. On the one hand, less fat is absorbed from food in the gastrointestinal tract, so that blood lipids decrease and fewer calories are absorbed.
On the other hand, the catechins boost the metabolism in the form of so-called thermogenesis, so that the basal metabolic rate increases. Calories ingested with food are burned faster and weight loss is effectively supported. Matcha tea contains less bitter substances than classic green tea, but still has a sufficient concentration to counteract the desire for something sweet.
This makes matcha tea an effective tea for losing weight, which at the same time counteracts food cravings. The caffeine also has an invigorating effect.
Can I also use it to detox?
Detoxing or dehydrating works particularly well with teas. The nettle tea, which has a strong dehydrating effect, is known for this. Birch leaf tea also detoxifies the tissue.
In order to achieve a detoxifying effect, a cup of dehydrating tea should be drunk half an hour before each main meal.
Matcha tea and yogi tea are said to have a blood pressure regulating effect and thus influence the body's water balance.
In order to detoxify very quickly and very effectively, a detox treatment is best, in which only herbal teas, vegetable broths and fruit juices are consumed.
Another way to detoxify the body is the water diet. This stimulates the metabolism and the desired weight loss success is not long in coming.

Lose weight with tea and rusks
It is not uncommon for a rusk diet to be necessary in the case of gastrointestinal diseases. Rusks with tea can help you lose weight very quickly and without an elaborate diet plan. Small amounts of rusks fill you up very quickly. In this diet, rusks are often eaten with sour cream and fruit are also consumed. This lightning diet requires drinking lots of herbal, fruit teas, and water. The body should only get 800 calories per day. Rusk and tea are cheap to buy, the diet plan is easy to follow, and very little effort is required to prepare.
Since this tea-rusk diet is very one-sided, it should only be carried out for a few days, but this diet promises rapid weight loss without hunger. However, there is the risk of the dreaded yo-yo effect as soon as the diet reverts to old patterns.
If you really want to lose weight in the long term, you should change your diet and focus on nutrient-rich food.

Side effect of diet
Losing weight with tea is generally a safe diet, as the body does not have to forego nutrients with two main meals left. Deficiency symptoms do not occur.
In addition, tea is generally as good as calorie-free but at the same time very rich in nutrients. It is therefore generally a very healthy drink that has many positive effects on our body. If a meal is replaced by tea and several liters are consumed during the day, the body burns more energy and ultimately fat.
Due to the high fluid intake, the kidneys have to work a lot. Therefore, a side effect is that you have to urinate very often. That can be disruptive in professional life.
You must also be careful that you do not drink tea containing caffeine in the evening. This is especially not recommended right before going to sleep, as the caffeine keeps you awake and makes it difficult to fall asleep.
Criticism of the diet
In order to lose weight in the long term and maintain the desired weight, a balanced diet and regular exercise are essential.
Losing weight with tea is suitable for losing weight quickly, but is not a long-term diet. Exercise is not included in the diet, which burns calories directly and builds muscles. Muscles generally boost the metabolism and shape the body.
What are the risks of the diet?
Losing weight with tea carries the risk of the yo-yo effect. The diet is only suitable for a few days.
If the eating habits change radically after the diet, the body suddenly absorbs a lot more calories and the weight quickly increases again.
How can I avoid the yo-yo effect with this diet?
To avoid the yo-yo effect when losing weight with tea, it can help to slowly change your diet after the diet. If you fall into old patterns after 5 days of losing weight with tea, the weight is quickly back on your hips. However, if the diet is changed to a healthy and balanced diet and the calories are not radically increased after the diet, you can lose weight in the long term and maintain the desired weight.
It also helps to introduce light exercise units during the diet and gradually increase them.
Medical evaluation of the diet by
The principle of this diet is very easy, the tea is a good diet support measure and effectively helps with weight loss. Tea can be prepared in thermos flasks for a diet at work and the costs are affordable.
In principle, you don't have to count calories on this diet. On the other hand, the success of the diet increases significantly if the two main meals that remain are healthy and low in fat.
The risk of the yo-yo effect is great when dieting, but it can be prevented. This requires a long-term change in diet. That is why we consider tea to be a very good and healthy addition to the meal plan, and less effective as a single diet for permanent weight loss. It is best to combine a balanced, low-calorie diet with regular exercise.

What alternative diets are there?
More radical than losing weight with tea would be a complete therapeutic fasting regimen in which only drinking is allowed. The purification process is faster and more weight is lost, but the yo-yo effect is almost inevitable.
If it is difficult to replace a meal with liquid, other flash diets may be more practical. For example the rice diet or the cabbage soup diet. An apple cider vinegar diet, if done properly, can also help with weight loss.
For long-term diet success and maintaining the desired weight, a low-carb diet with regular exercise can be promising. This diet can be carried out for weeks to months and if the diet is changed over the long term, the dreaded yo-yo effect can be avoided. Sport as a supplement to the diet helps significantly to shape the body and keep the pounds dropping.

What is the cost of losing weight with tea?
The cost of this diet is generally low. It depends on whether you buy green tea in the drugstore or expensive matcha tea from the health food store with a bamboo whisk.
Since it makes sense with this diet to change the types of tea over the course of the day and the course of the day, a small selection of different types and tastes that people like to drink is sufficient.
