1. 2 – 3 Cups of Green Tea a Day
How many cups should you drink per day? Overall weight loss depends on individual body dynamics but as little as 2 – 3 cups a day can help you in your weight loss mission. That’s an easy step for an important mission.
2. Drink Natural Tea
It is important to consider different sources and their quality if you are going to include tea as a weapon in your weight loss arsenal. Packet and processed tea sold in commercial stores are often laden with sugar – which will encourage weight gain instead. Instead, opt for the natural route.

Eventually, it became the most sought-after trade commodity of the English East India Company.
