Green Tea Diet With Honey and Lemon

by Angelina

Hi, I drink brewed green tea with one spoon of honey with some lemon juice. I take it empty stomach in the morning to shred some weight. Is it correct to add honey and lemon and take it in the morning?

Angelina, it is absolutely fine to drink green tea the way you do! In fact, I drink it first thing in the morning too - 3 to 6 cups (about 3 grams or 300 milligrams of catechins).

The only problem you have to be aware of drinking green tea empty stomach is that it may cause discomfort for some people. If you experience nausea or heartburn, then it is better to drink it between meals.

Taking green tea with honey and lemon juice is a great idea. In particular, the study belows that adding lemons actualy boost the antioxidant properties of green tea.

Green Tea With Lemon

Of course, if you are drinking a very high grade green tea, then it will make sense to drink it on its own as adding honey and lemons only will distract you from experiencing its rich, savoury taste.

I hope my answer helps. Please do consider signing to my newsletter as I will be publishing a series of articles on green tea diet plan soon.

Green tea with honey
by: Anonymous

I heard having honey daily adds up to your weight. How far is this true?

I have green tea with honey & lime. Will that help in losing weight?

Weight Loss
by: Julian

Honey contains significant calories so it could cause weight loss.

I think the key is to use a little.

But if you need to add something to your green tea to make it tastes better anyway, use honey rather than sugar for reasons stated below.

If you drink green tea without honey, that's even better for weight loss.

That's what I do. Drink quality. Green tea tastes better by itself.

Green Tea with Honey and Lemon
by: Dr. Sadiq

My dad advised me to drink green tea with honey and lemon. Its really amazing that I lost 4 kg in just 3 weeks. I am also following strict diet plan, not going beyond 900 calories a day. So in my opinion, green tea with honey and lemon works better with diet control.

Green tea and weight loss
by: Julian

Hi, green tea does have a small weight loss effect. It is not a wonder drug, through. If you can, you should still exercise. The good thing is that green tea can increase your endurance, and increases your performance level.

Normal Green Tea
by: Keerthana

I was drinking only green tea. About 2-3 cups. It did work out, but also I used to work out in gym and little bit of diet.

Green tea alone wont help in reducing, we have to work out and follow diet.

Green Teabag
by: Anonymous

What is the benefit of using a green teabag directly on skin?

Aug 03, 2013
by: Tanya

I have started drinking green tea. I have done some research, the main reason i am drinking it is because of all the health benefits. Drinking it with natural manuka honey and lemon is more beneficial than processed honey (make sure you read labels). For weight loss, the health benefits are amazing, but of course you have to do some hard work. You cant eat a kilo of junk while drinking the tea and expect results...
