It is no wonder that the green tea diet has become quite popular in Western civilization. The health benefits of green tea have been widely known in Asia and the Indies for centuries. Now the word is out, and health advocates as well as weight loss gurus are praising how effective this little tea leaf can be.

The secret to green tea is finally out! This simple leaf is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG has been known to help oxidize the blood, stimulating the metabolism by at least 4% and raising the body's ability to burn fat without increasing the heart rate.

How to "Do" the Green Tea Diet

The average recommended intake of green tea for dieters is at least three cups of green tea a day. Unfortunately, those interested in weight loss may not be interested in the often bitter taste of the tea, nor the accompanying caffeine high that accompanies it. For those who enjoy the taste and the effect of the stimulant, this may not be a problem.

Luckily, there are products made specifically for green tea weight loss. These products include a patch, designed very much like a nicotine or weight loss patch, which allows the body to absorb a concentrated amount of the benefits of green tea without any of the side effects. Instead of drinking 30 cups a day, you can stimulate your metabolic rate and lose weight with a discreetly placed green tea diet patch.
