Drinking tea could burn more fat during your sleep

It’s all to do with the link between fat around our middles and stress levels, which can slow down our metabolism.

But if you can’t get a good night’s sleep, the one way to improve the quality is to have a cup of tea before bed.

Why can tea help with weight loss?

Stress comes in many different forms but their effect on our metabolisms is the same.

The first step to reducing stress levels is by getting a good night’s sleep.

And an easy way to improve the quality of your rest is by having a cup of pre-bed tea.

This doesn’t mean diet teas, but more like a peppermint, chamomile or cinnamon infusion.

Speaking about the benefits of cinnamon tea, nutritionist Helen Bond told The Sun: “Though it has a slight metabolism/thermogenic effect, it is more about balancing blood sugar and insulin resistance, which in turn aids weight loss and can lessen food cravings.

“Again, this does not replace the need for dietary changes. A far better way of balancing blood sugar and insulin resistance is to follow a sugar-free, low-carbohydrate diet.”

Tea has many health benefits
