In brief: The magic bullet?

If you think about it, is there ANYTHING that can magically shrink your waist size? Not likely.
However, there is evidence that catechins and polyphenols in both green and white tea can have an impact on metabolism and the activity of fat cells. I think it is a reasonable adjunct to healthy plant-based diet and exercise (but won't have a significant effect without the lifestyle part).
