“Green tea has been shown to increase fat loss by reducing food intake, increasing fat burning, and suppressing the formation of fat cells. To shrink belly fat, sip it throughout the day, aiming to drink 4-6 teacups daily (teacups are smaller than regular cups and hold 4-5 ounces),” they continue, adding that green tea contains caffeine, which may help with body fat reduction as well.
