Weight Loss with Tea and Coffee

From Sean Paajanen, former About.com Guide

You might not think of coffee or tea when it comes to trying to lose some weight, but I've got a few gems around here that might help you out. Sorry, but there is no 'miracle tea' that can melt away all your excess pounds.

Your Diet Plan
If you are following one of the hip, new diet and eating plans (such as the South Beach diet, Sugar Busters or the Blood type diet), you might want to check whether or not your coffee and tea is allowed.

Pu-erh Tea
Don't let the odd name scare you. Pu-erh tea is quite tasty, and might be able to help you on your road to good health. Pu-erh is known to help digest fatty foods, and may even help to reduce your cholesterol levels.

Watch Your Fat Content
Now, there is NO fat in coffee or tea, so you can drink either one to your heart's content. But you can rack up some serious calories and fat if you don't watch what you put into your cup. If you enjoy a dollop of cream, you may be surprised just how much fat you're adding.

Drink Lots of Water
It can be tough to drink all those glasses of water that nutritionists say we should, especially when you'd rather be noshing on some fudge ice-cream. Filtering your water can really improve the taste, and even makes it better for you by removing the chlorine. Portable filter bottles can help you bring filtered water with you.


Caffeine as an Appetite Suppressant
Caffeine can help to dampen down your appetite, at least mildly. Of course, caffeine does have some other side effects you should keep in mind before you start guzzling coffee to help your weight loss. My wife often has a cup of coffee mid-afternoon to help quell her munchies. The little energy boost might help you stay active a little while longer too.

Overall, a nice cup of tea or coffee can help you get over any snack cravings. Green or herbal teas are a great choice because of the extra health.
