Oolong Tea

Oolong and Rooibos are two types of teas that most people don’t tend to gravitate to, but this shouldn’t be the case, especially since they’re so great when it comes to weight loss.

A study conducted by Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center and presented in LiveStrong examined the effects of oolong tea consumption over the course of three days. Researchers found that those who drank 4 cups of tea (as compared to 4 cups of water) saw a 3% higher energy expenditure and burned 67 more calories than their water-drinking buddies.

If those benefits aren’t enough, the study also found that the tea group showed 12% more fat oxidation, which means you’d be crazy to pass on oolong tea next time you have the option to burn some fat.
