    Take green tea hot or cold for fat burning


    Does it matter if you take green tea hot or cold?
    I'm gonna start taking it at night in order to aid in fat burning.
    Also it really effective or not?
    What would be a good alternative.
    I have the little slips that you heat but am thinking about putting some ice cubes after

    don't think it matters...... be careful green tea has alot of caffeine in it, might keep you up at night.... i know that cold water burns calories (your body has to heat water up to core temperature it takes energy to do this which burns calories) but its a very minute amount i saw it on discovery channel they had to break it down into years to burn any significant amount calories

    Green tea in the morning

    Sleepy time tea pre bed

    Not sure how effective it really is with regard to fat burning but I enjoy tea so it doesnt really matter to me

    I don't think it matters that much. I wouldn't recommend drinking it before bed because it does contain caffeine (Not that much though honestly). The whole cold/hot water to burn calories difference is negligible. Drink it whichever way taste better to you.

    Has some herbs that promote deeper/quality sleep. I believe passion flower may be one.

    Temperature of the green tea doesn't matter and in itself has no bearing on fat loss. It's the EGCG's in the green tea that promote fat loss and in order to get that from the drink, you have to take in a substantial amount.

    I suggest you should stay with Green tea..
    U can also add some cinnamon or ginger to your last meal to aid some more thermogenic effect.

    DCP is effective. Or you can build your own. I like raspberry ketones, TTA 500, Thyrocaps, and EC. Makes a potent stack.

    It doesn't matter. Just don't drink TOO much green tea as it dehydrates you.


    On some bro-science ****....drinking ANY liquid ICE COLD will help burn more calories as your body needs to re-turn back to its normal core temperature.

    I think green tea actually has only 40-70% of the caffeine coffee contains.

    1 serving of coffee is about 135 mg of caffeine.
    1 serving of green tea is 20 mg.

    Black tea has higher ration content of caffeine than green tea.
