When it comes to weight loss, there are many things you can do. Often, we turn to supplements which can be quite overwhelming and confusing. For many supplements out there, results can be skewed due to dosages, quality of supplements. Also many studies maybe conflicting due to their designs as well as issues noted in the above. However, there are a few supplements that have some promising evidence. A great supplement that may help you lose weight is green tea.
Green tea supplements work by reducing carbohydrate breakdown thereby reducing energy intake, as well as reducing fat absorption. It may also affect your gut microbiome.
Research is showing that the gut microbiome can affect many aspects of health. The composition of the gut microbiome is highly correlated with obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. Green tea may modulate the gut microbiome creating an environment that can facilitate weight loss.
Please remember that this is just a supplement that can help with weight loss…. meaning you still need to eat the right kinds of things and exercise routinely to help achieve your goals.
What else can you do? Take a balanced approach to your diet. Changes you make to your diet need to be sustainable and not cause you any harm. Adding in consistent exercise can help take you where you want to go. If you are still having hard time, there are other options for treatment.
