The Green Tea Fat Burner Plan

The green tea fat burner plan is pretty simple --  take a green tea fat burner each day to help promote healthy weight loss and fat burning. Green tea has been widely studied for its health benefits, including the way it supports fat loss by boosting your metabolism (making you burn more calories at rest) and reducing appetite levels.

Combined with strategies like a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet, as well as daily movement and intermittent fasting, a green tea fat burner strategy can be a great way to lose weight fast, along with fighting high blood pressure, heart disease, and a number of other potential health problems!

The Perks and Health Benefits of Using Green Tea

Improved Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight and burning fat, green tea has some well-documented effects.

First, green tea has been shown to improve your metabolism, which is the rate at which your body burns calories. Green tea improves fat burning by increasing thermogenesis, or heat production in your body, and boosting levels of norepinephrine (a neurotransmitter).

Green tea also has caffeine in it, which can help boost your energy levels and increase the number of calories you burn (known as thermogenesis). Green tea is also a source of catechins--which have been shown to increase fat burning.

Zero Calories

As a daily beverage, there's very little reason not to at least try green tea to help burn fat. After all,  it has essentially zero calories, meaning that when you try a green tea fat burner strategy you're never going to experience any unexpected weight gain (even if you don't like your green tea fat burner and stop taking it!).

No Negative Side Effects

Another feather in the cap of a green tea fat burner strategy is the fact that green tea doesn't have any negative side effects. Green tea is safe to take, and studies show that it's even beneficial for pregnant women (although you should always ask your doctor before using one).

This is a major difference from many weight-loss and fat-burning supplements, which can have a number of negative side effects.

The one active ingredient to be aware of in green tea is caffeine, which some people might be sensitive to, but in this case, you can always go for a decaffeinated green tea, green tea extract, or alternative and keep all the effects and benefits of your green tea fat burner!

Positive Benefits

And maybe the best part of a green tea fat burner strategy is the fact that you're also getting a wide range of other health benefits!

Green tea is packed with antioxidants, which are compounds that help fight off free radicals. Green tea is also high in catechins, which have an anti-inflammatory effect on your body and may even offer some protection against certain types of cancer!

Add in fact, green tea has been proven to help with mental acuity, especially as you age, and you've got a fat burner that can boost many different aspects  of your health as well!

Alternatives to Drinking Green Tea

If you're not a big fan of drinking green tea (whether that's from tea bags or tea leaves), there are a number of alternatives that will let you follow a green tea fat burner strategy without needing to actually drink green tea.

Green Tea Supplements

One popular alternative to drinking green tea is to take green tea supplements. Green tea extracts are often among the best-selling diet pills on the market, and for good reason! Green tea extract capsules usually contain about 100mg of caffeine (the amount in around two cups of coffee), along with extra catechins that help boost your weight loss results even further

Just take one per day to replace your cup of green tea, and you can see a difference.

Green Tea Extract

Another popular alternative to drinking green tea is to take green tea extract, which is created by boiling and concentrating green tea leaves. Green tea extract is a little more potent than the supplements, meaning it might give you even better weight loss results!

Like taking green tea capsules, this can be an easy way to take advantage of all the benefits without actually drinking green tea (which some people just don't like!)

Green Tea Powder

And our favorite alternative to drinking green tea (though we do love green tea) is green tea powder! Also known as matcha, green tea powder is packed with antioxidants and catechins, which makes it a fantastic way to boost your green tea fat burning.

Green tea powder also has an interesting flavor that some people prefer over the taste of brewed green tea (see below for more information).

But what really sets green tea powder apart as a green tea fat burner is the fact that it's so versatile. You can use green tea powder in  a number of different ways to boost your results, ranging from adding it to a smoothie, salad, salad dressing, using it for cooking purposes, or even mixing it with other teas!

Amla Green: The Ultimate Green Tea Fat Burner

And we asked ourselves a while back... what if we could enhance green tea even further? Green tea is a great fat-burning tool, but what if we could upgrade it to an entirely new level?

That's part of the reason that brought us to Amla Green.

Amla Green takes all of the benefits you get from drinking green tea and adds another layer, with amla powder! Amla, also known as the Indian gooseberry fruit, has been used in Indian traditional medicine for hundreds of years, and prescribed to increase your energy levels, boost your immune system, purify your blood, and burn fat. 

Now, we know that not every historical home remedy lives up to the billing, but in the past few decades amla has. Below, we’ll break down how the evidence supports amla’s incredible health-boosting power, and why it works great with green tea in Amla Green!

Next Level, Healthy Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight, amla takes green tea to another level, working not only within your metabolism and energy, but also within your digestive tract. The result is a plant that has a proven anti-obesity and weight gain effect when taken once per day, and one that has shown consistent results in clinical trials.

Improved Cardiovascular Health

Amla also has a number of other cardiovascular benefits for your body, meaning it not only helps you look better, it helps you fight heart disease as well.

First, amla helps with high cholesterol, which can contribute to heart disease. Most herbal teas (including green!) are good for this as well, but amla adds another layer of protection by working on triglycerides (one major cause of high cholesterol).

This also has an effect on your blood pressure, which is another major cause of heart disease. Green tea works in this area as well, but again amla adds a new layer by working on hypertension and hypotension as well.

And finally, amla has a strong anti-diabetic effect, which means it can help you fight diabetes and the symptoms that come with having high blood sugar, which is another major cause of heart disease.

Still ZERO Calories and ZERO Risk

Well, there has to be a catch, right? Actually, no! Green tea and Amla Green are all zero-calorie supplements that have been shown to burn fat without causing you any side effects.

You also don't need to take them with food or worry about how much water you're drinking (a major problem with natural diuretics).

The only problems that can come out of these supplements are if they work too well, and you start to have low BP or blood sugar. If so, just stop taking them and you'll bounce back to normal.

And the Incredible Medicinal Benefits

We've touched on how Amla Green supports a green tea fat burner strategy, but when it comes down to it we've only scratched the surface of what amla can do for your health.

Amla Green works as an antioxidant to kill off free radicals that cause cancer and other health problems, which means it can help prevent or fight against diseases like arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, cystic fibrosis, heart disease, atherosclerosis...

And along with being the planet's most powerful antioxidant, it's also the second strongest source of Vitamin C in the world, and we're not even starting to scratch the surface of some of this potent fruit's benefits.

The Final Word? Double the Benefits, No Negatives

So when it comes down to it, a green tea fat burner strategy is fantastic, but adding in Amla Green doubles the benefits.

After all, not only do you improve the fat-burning benefits (and can watch the pounds slip away), but you're doubling the positive side effects, all without increasing the risk.

That works for us!
