What are the benefits of green tea in weight loss- what if you add honey?

What are the benefits of green tea in weight loss- what if you add honey?

Like so many alternative treatments or products, tradition, theory, hope and anecdotal evidence do not hold up when a formal review of evidence is done. See the excellent answers on weight loss on this site and drink tea because you like it, not for its supposed magical properties.

Is all sugar bad? E.g. Sugar in fresh fruit, or sugar in raw honey. Liver load in mind not so much weight loss. How much a day including from fruit?

Low-glycemic fruitOK: Good question. Some fruit has much more sugar than others. Small fruits where you eat the peel have many health benefits (berries, cherries, grapes, apples) & don't increase blood sugar much, but tropical fruits/melons should be limited. Honey in moderation also has health benefits-as a sweetener better than sugar but don't eat for health! See http://www. Medicalnewstoday. Com/articles/264667.php ...Read more
