With a cup or two of green tea inside you. you really notice the difference in terms of hunger pangs. You should find that you don’t think about food between meals.
• A little bit of caffeine
A cup of green tea contains about a quarter of the caffeine you’d find in a cup of coffee or half the caffeine you’d find in a cup of black tea. This caffeine is just enough to combine with the catechins to have an even more powerful fat-burning effect. This is the optimum way to convert fat to muscle.
