Pu Erh Tea
Pu erh tea helps you digest a fatty meal and at the same time warms and nourishes the stomach. A cup of pu erh tea contains only 4 calories and the caffeine in the tea can speed up the energy consumption and helps to break down fat.
To quickly achieve results simply drink 1000 ml pu erh tea per day after your meals, which is about two small bottles of water. Do this for a week or two, and the results will be surprising.
What’s so special about Chinese flower teas is that can help you gain energy and therefore reduce your appetite for unhealthy food. Most people want to reach for food when they feel tired (but not hungry). Drink a cup of flower tea when you can’t resist unhealthy food and dispel the need for it.
Green tea contains some caffeine and polyphenols can benefit the central nervous system, heart and liver function. And aromatic compounds in green tea can dissolve fat and prevent stagnation body fat.
Take appropriate amount of green tea steeped at 90 degrees Celsius and drink it an hour after a meal. Don’t drink it directly after the meal! Green tea prevents iron absorption, so wait until your food is almost digested (1 hour is a good rule of thumb). Like pu erh, you could drink about 1000 ml a day to gain quick results. Avoid drinking it on an empty stomach though.
