Black Tea for Weight Loss?

Those practicing alternative medicine have long touted the benefits of tea. Only recently have there been studies suggesting scientific evidence that tea is good for you and that it may help with weight loss.

A recent study published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism showed that adults who drink pu-erh (a type of black tea) not only lost weight but also reduced their overall cholesterol, including their "bad" cholesterol.There may be several reasons for weight loss.

The first is that tea is a diuretic, meaning that it causes you to urinate more, thus losing more water weight. The second is that tea has caffeine in it---black tea has the highest caffeine of all the teas---thus increasing your body's metabolism and helping it burn fat. Lastly, black tea appears to inhibit absorption of sugar in the body and reduces the glucose levels in the bloodstream.
