This is not new. We know the Japanese way of drinking or sipping tea while they eat, but why could we not do this?
Obesity has become a worldwide “pandemic”. Factors include not eating a balanced diet and lack of exercise, but the most one we should consider serious is lack of sleep or this abnormal sleeping pattern. We tend to eat our midnight snack when hunger strikes.
And yet, we have to work. Many of us work night shift, so there is a greater tendency we eat at midnight or during the inactive hours of our body. Night time until dawn is when the body should be replenishing and should be flushing out the toxins accumulated in it.
Furthermore, since we sleep during the day, we find no time for exercise, so there is a big chance to develop this mild to severe obesity.
We mainly use carbohydrates, which is mainly glucose, from what we eat. Left unused, this turns into fat. This fat is stored in our cells, so we should not wonder why we cannot get rid of the love handles.
The consequence is we search for slimming pills online that we are hopeful could solve this fat problem. When using these pills or laxatives, either we see only a temporary improvement or that they are not effective at all. Some of us even attempt different types of diet, the modified types, like the paleo, the vegan, and other trending diets we read on the Internet.
The solution is simple – drinking tea while eating. You may call this a trick, but this is simply changing the way we eat. Green tea, which has flavonoids aside from a bit of caffeine, is unquestionably beneficial to the body. It makes us think more clearly, more active during the day, makes us awake with minimal side effects, unlike coffee.
Coffee has more addictive content – caffeine, as we know it. A potent content, caffeine causes sleeplessness and, in some people, tremor, nervousness, and agitation. Other coffee-lovers may develop withdrawal symptoms or tolerance, which is when they can no longer feel the effect of coffee, such as keeping them awake. The coffee’s effects here may be exclusive only to black coffee.
Green tea’s effects include detoxification without damaging the kidney. Back to the main topic, green tea improves fat oxidation and metabolism. Drinking tea while eating is more effective than drinking it at night. The tea instantly takes effect while our body is digesting the food we have just eaten.
Tea also improves insulin secretion, which hormone regulates macronutrient metabolism. Hence, if there is a normal secretion of insulin in the bloodstream, the glucose level would be in balance, preventing diabetes mellitus type II.
