Think of white tea as Spanx in a cup. It actually works with your body in four different ways to promote fat-burning: It blocks the formation of new fat cells while simultaneously boosting lipolysis, the body’s process of breaking down stored fat, according to a study published in the journalNutrition and Metabolism. Another group of researchers found that the tea is also a rich source of catechins, a type of antioxidant that triggers the release of fat from the cells and—bonus!—helps speed the liver’s ability to turn fat into energy. Brew this and burn fat.

Ashwagandha tea gives you a better outlook on life and reduces stress hormones that can wreak havoc on your waistline. A study published in the *Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine* found that “Ashwagandha root extract safely and effectively improves an individual's resistance towards stress and thereby improves self-assessed quality of life.” When it comes to weight loss, stress is not your friend. A recent study at Penn State found that people who react badly to stressful situations have increased levels of inflammation in their bodies—and inflammation is directly tied to obesity, as well as diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer. When anxiety rides high, you’re also at the mercy of stress hormones such as cortisol—known as “the belly fat hormone” for its ability to pull lipids from the bloodstream and store them in our fat cells.


Black tea is the most processed of the true teas. The leaves are oxidized, resulting in the deep, rick black hue of the tea. There are tons of different types of black teas, but the most common are Assam, Darjeeling, Earl Grey, and breakfast teas. Research shows that black tea is an effective weight loss aid due to the presence of flavones. These antioxidants help to prevent cardiovascular disease and can lower body mass index.
If detoxing tastes this delicious, we’re sold. We genuinely couldn’t get enough of the Clean N Green blend from Teapigs. Its tropical fragrance was uplifting, leaving us in a great mood, while the slightly sweet taste helped keep our sugar cravings at bay. Our tummies felt calm, relaxed and less bloated, and although it does contain a small amount of caffeine – thanks to the energising green tea – we couldn’t resist drinking it throughout the day and into the evening. Get the kettle on! Now who’s for a brew?

Another way to fill up before a meal is by eating salad. Lettuce has plenty of water content to take up space in the stomach. That leaves less room for fattier foods that might come later in the meal. Make your salad interesting by adding a variety of fruits and vegetables or grated cheese. Be careful about dressing, which can add a lot of calories.

A 2015 review of five human trials involving more than 300 adults with metabolic syndrome (at high risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease) compared changes in body weight in participants who were given either green tea, a fermented tea called Pu-ehr, or tea extracts, and those who were given placebo (non-active) tea extracts or no tea at all. The treatment duration ranged from two to six months.

McGrice adds that the caffeine compounds found in some tea products may be beneficial for weight loss due to their impact on increasing metabolic rate. "Many of the teas contain compounds such as caffeine or the catechins in green tea, which research has shown can produce changes in metabolism – the effects of these compounds are small, but better than nothing. They won't help you lose 10kg but they can have an impact," she says.
Kava Kava quells worrying thoughts. In one study, 120 mg of kava-kava was administered daily over 6 weeks to patients who had stress-induced insomnia. The results suggested a statistically significant improvement in sleep latency, duration and waking mood. When you’re anxious, your body feels like it’s under a tremendous amount of stress all the time. This is why anxiety is a powerful trigger for weight gain. A recent study in the journal *Eating and Weight Disorders* placed anxiety as “one of the most important factors significantly associated with weight gain.” In fact, two-thirds of people with eating disorders also suffer from anxiety, and the anxiety usually existed first. But sip with caution—at very high levels, kava kava can cause liver toxicity. Kava Kava should only be one part of an overall, balanced tea cleanse.
When you're trying to shed pounds, most of what you drink should be plain water. Not only is water naturally calorie-free, it's also the best way to hydrate. Green tea, however, would be a close second in terms of its benefits for weight loss. While green tea won't burn up all your belly fat, and it's not the miracle weight loss cure it's sometimes portrayed as, it does have a place in a weight loss diet and might help you shed pounds overall.
Diet teas are marketed as a way to cleanse, detox, and generally support weight loss, but the evidence that they do any of these things is sketchy at best. Most diet teas—also called slimming teas or weight-loss teas—are based on the herb senna. Senna, FDA-approved for the treatment of occasional constipation, contains chemicals that irritate the large intestine and cause a laxative effect.
