Diet: Green Tea & Exercise = Weight Loss.

Green tea extract may aid in weight loss, according to a new study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. Researchers found that recreationally active participants who took a green tea extract capsule every day for four weeks experienced a body fat reduction of 1.63% compared with a placebo group. They also noted a 10.9% increase in exercise performance among those taking the green tea extract during the four-week study. Lead researcher Dr. Dustin Roberts writes, “In essence, our study showed that the use of a green tea extract could potentially help people to lose weight, if combined with exercise. However, we recognize that a larger scale study is now required.”
