How many cups of green tea do you have to drink in a day in order to lose weight?

So far I’ve been drinking three cups a day but I’m not sure if that’s the right amount. I’ve also been exercising for an hour everyday too to get good results and I didn’t want to depend only on the green tea to help me lose weight. Please answer and thanks!

    3-4 cups of green tea plus additional 5-6 glasses of water. Plus eat healthy, no cakes, ice cream, bread, potatoes, etc. When you lose some weight, you can start adding them back bit by bit so you do not gain the weight back.

    Good luck!

    Cute Aviator….. I think it’s great that you are also working out along with drinking the tea.

    Green tea does burn fat.
    Food (including sugar and fat) is synthesized into a substance called “triglyceride” in the liver and small intestine. It is then carried into the bloodstream to other tissues in the body.

    Triglyceride is used as source of energy for life support and physical activities, and is very necessary. The problem comes about when there are excess amounts of triglyceride, because then it’s turned into fat which subsequently causes obesity.

    That’s where green tea comes in. It contains high amounts of polyphenols which activate the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving excess triglyceride. In the long run, this means that green tea effectively aids in burning fat.

    Green Tea Stimulates the Metabolism & Accelerates Weight Loss
    Green tea contains powerful antioxidants called catechin polyphenols that are responsible for many of the health benefits of green tea. One of them in particular, epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG for short), has been found to stimulate the metabolism and accelerate weight loss.
    EGCG, along with the caffeine in green tea, stimulates the central nervous system and causes fat to be released into the blood stream for the body to use as fuel. This process of fat being used for energy is called “thermogenesis”. It provides extra energy, sheds excess water, and also helps to burn body fat.

    Although caffeine alone can stimulate the metabolism this way, it’s important to note that researchers found that the combined ingredients of green tea were much more effective at this process than just caffeine by itself.

    Green Tea Helps You Exercise Longer

    Everyone knows how important exercise is to losing weight. It burns calories, increases your energy, and builds muscle which in turn boosts your metabolism even higher. The catechin polyphenols in green tea appear to stimulate the use of fatty acids by liver and muscle cells. This subsequently reduces the rate that carbohydrates are used and allows for more endurance and longer exercise times. In fact, a study using green tea extract on lab rats increased the amount of time the animals could swim before becoming exhausted by as much as 24%.

    More endurance means more exercise, which means more calories burned, and it all adds up to more pounds lost for you.
