How Much Green Tea Should I Drink?
“ How much green tea should I drink a day?” This is one of the common questions I receive every day regarding green tea. The answer seems to be pretty important for people who – like me – started drinking green tea for weight loss solutions.
This of course, is the same question I had some months ago. Very much is said about the benefits of green tea, yet it is hard to find concise information about the amounts of green tea to drink per day.
So, how much green tea should you drink for results?
Let me say first, this info is based on my own experience and observations with green tea. The amount of “doses” will depend greatly on the type of green tea presentation you consume.
In the case of green tea extracts (which you can find mostly of 350mg), I’d recommend taking from three to four pills a day, but not at once. Instead, it is a good idea to take them after eating: breakfast, lunch and dinner with abundant water preferably.
If you are drinking green tea hot or as iced tea, I’d recommend drinking at least one cup after your meals. However, when drinking green tea, you are freer with the way you take green tea. For example, during summer I take my iced green tea and drink it throughout the day besides after every meal. Be sure though to not make of this tea your exclusive drink, you should also be taking pure water.
Finally, you can opt for the pill / drink combo. Here’s a great tip that also gave me great results: Take 3 pills a day, again after every meal. And while you are eating or at any time, replace your usual drink with green tea. Lately, I’ve been using this combination and it really works!
