Drink tea, lose weight

If you're not drinking green tea, you should be. In addition to green tea's well documented benefits (improving longevity and reducing risk of diabetes, Alzheimer's, and certain cancers), a new study published in The Journal of Nutrition links drinking tea with weight loss.

About 100 relatively sedentary adults between age 21 and 65 were divided into two groups; one group drank a beverage with 500ml of green tea catechins, while the other drank a caffeinated placebo. Participants did 180 minutes of physical activity per week. By the end, the group drinking the catechin-boosted bev experienced a greater exercised-induced loss of ab fat.
