In brief: Yes

Green tea helps with weight loss in three ways.
First, green tea has catechins that push your body towards thermogenesis. Second, it's a diuretic, so you lose water bloat. And third, it lowers blood sugar, so you don't have cravings. 3-5 cups a day over a period of months seems about the right amount to gain the benefits of losing weight.
