I’m sure everyone has seen a picture or two (or seven) of those creamy looking matcha lattes loved by bloggers and health nuts all over Instagram. There’s a reason why it’s so popular. Matcha is earthy, subtly sweet, and the tiniest bit bitter, but even if you don’t love the taste, the health benefits are worth forcing it down. I happen to love Matcha, especially mixed in with mint iced teas and tropical green teas, or as a deliciously creamy latte. Aside from loving the taste, Matcha, and green teas in general, are THE #1 best things you can put into your body for fat loss.
Green teas and Matcha have this natural chemical in them called catechins, and these little babies are the magical things that tell your body to burn that fat right off. Believe it or not, drinking green tea and Matcha, in particular, caused study participants to burn up to 25% more fat during exercise than those who didn’t consume the drink. Let me just reiterate this one for you guys, IT DOES THE FAT BURNING WORK FOR YOU. Besides it’s crazy fat burning properties, Matcha and green tea are loaded with antioxidants, are anti-cancerous, and helps fight signs of aging. Tell your body and those jeans you’ve been dying to fit back into that I said “you’re welcome.”
