Diet Tea has been used as an aid for weight loss for quite some time. If one drinks diet tea, a cup with each meal, it can aid the body in many ways as well as being used successfully as a metabolic stimulant.
Diet tea, sometimes referred to as Green Tea, by itself only has a minimal 4 calories per serving. It is most healthy and has the fewest calories when consumed with nothing such as sugar or crème added.
The way that diet tea is said to aid in weight loss is the caffeine in tea increases body function to help burn more calories. Also the polyphenols in diet tea seem to help in the digestion of fat. This is what lends credence to the name diet tea.
Green Tea, Pu-erh and Oolong teas have received the most attention regarding weight loss and are most thought of when one speaks of diet tea. However, any type of tea offers a low calorie substitute to commercial sugary beverages.
Of course before changing your habits on what you consume, make sure to check with your doctor. Some people cannot tolerate caffeine and it might be a poor health choice to take up drinking large amounts of diet tea in this case.
