Matcha and weight loss: how to use matcha green tea to support weight loss

Ok, let me say it right now. Matcha tea, although it’s almost there ahahahah, won’t do miracles by itself but… it will definitely boost and amplify your dieting efforts! It’s been proven by several scientific studies that matcha green tea helps reduce BMI, plus matcha is rich in catechins that can help your body burn calories up to 4 times quicker. That is why we can say matcha tea aids weight loss. Catechin in fact exercise a thermogenic effect, which is the process that burns the fat in your body. That’s the reason why we suggest to look into green tea when it comes to support your diet.

Other researches have demonstrated that regular green tea drinkers have about a 20-25% reduction in body fat percentage. So reduction of body weight, mass index, waist circumference and body fat are some of the benefits of those who drink green tea regularly. So if you want to lose weight drinking matcha is definitely a good way to improve your metabolism and benefit from all the other matcha healthy properties.

But not only that. Matcha tea has no calories and it works perfectly as appetite suppressant! Every time you crave a snack you can easily substitute it with a cup of matcha! It is very good for those who follow the keto diet (YES! Matcha is keto friendly) or intermittent fasting. And on top of that is an excellent ally to sustain your energy and endurance during work out, even the more intense sessions in the gym, which is obviously another way to support your weight loss.
