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.
