If you've done the Fat X program or have been a reader of Fat X 101 you know that I'm a big advocate of using green tea as a fat loss aide. The evidence showing the efficacy of green tea on weight loss continues to mount. The most recent study on green tea and weight loss was conducted at Fudan University in China and has been published in the Journal of Obesity.
The study was conducted over 90 days. Researches used a group of 182 overweight 18-55 year old subjects. They gave the subjects green tea with varying amounts of catechins, 30-900 milligrams at regular intervals. At the end of the 90 days researchers found that the group given green tea with the largest amount of catechins showed a significant decrease in body weight, inches and fat mass.
While the study was funded by Lipton, a major producer of tea products, the study confirms several other studies. Here's the link to the full story.
