How Many Calories Does Green Tea Burn?

While green tea helps the body to burn calories, it is impossible to know how many calories will be burned says WebMD. The green tea is able to burn calories due to the polyphenols and the catechins in the tea because it stimulates the thermogenic fat-burning activity of the body, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

To burn the most calories, researchers stated that participants should drink 690 catechins each day. The study, within the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, asked participants to drink this amount for a total of twelve weeks leading to incredible results in total fat, skinfold fat thickness and subcutaneous fat.
