Green tea is not only one of the healthiest drinks that you can find around but it is also the drink that would aid most in losing weight and boosting metabolism.

While drinking green tea will certainly help, if you drink it at a schedule, it will be more effective.

The green tea's antioxidant and compound components can boost metabolism and help you burn calories faster.

According to the Daily Express, the matcha powder is one of the healthiest form of the drink because it has the highest concentration of green tea. Matcha is made from young green tea leaves.

If you prefer your green tea in a tea bag or loose leaves, make sure that you allow the water that you boiled 10 minutes to cool down before adding in your green tea. The green tea's natural antioxidants, called catechins, which aid in weight loss will die in boiling water.

The experts said that it will be good to start your day by boosting your metabolism by drinking green tea right after you wake up in the morning. Not only will it kickstart your metabolism but it will also provide your body with nutrients and help you focus.

It will also be good for your health if you drink another one before you sleep. Make sure you drink it not on a full stomach though.

Research also suggest that drinking green tea before you do your exercises will increase the amount of fat you burn by 17 percent. Not only that, it will also allow your body to burn more calories even when you are at rest.

Another way that you can get the most effectivity out of drinking green tea is by doing so every before meal.

Some people swear that doing so makes them full and thus it will prevent them from eating more than one serving during the meal.

Whatever schedule you choose, remember that green tea should only be consumed two to three times a day.

There are many ways to lose weight and stay in shape. You just have to choose one that would work for you. One thing is for sure, without your determination, it will not happen.
