Think antioxidant and take up drinking green tea to burn fat. Antioxidant food and beverage are the best foods for weight loss and can make the difference in your fat burning plan. Japanese Green tea is now, after several studies, known to help dieters. A study in Geneva found that people given green tea extract burned more calories. Drinking beverage or eating foods high in antioxidants will slow the aging process. Green tea is rich in vitamin E which works as antioxidant. Also, catechin in green tea is a very strong antioxidant.
Links are being made between the effects of drinking green tea and the “French Paradox.” For years, researchers were puzzled by the fact that, despite consuming a diet rich in fat, the French have a lower incidence of heart disease than Americans. The answer was found to lie in red wine, which contains resveratrol, a polyphenol that limits the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet. In a 1997 study, researchers from the University of Kansas determined that EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol, which may explain why the rate of heart disease among Japanese men is quite low, even though approximately seventy-five percent are smokers.
