Our expert says:
Green tea does contain some compounds which appear to aid weight loss, but the research in this field is still in the early stages, so we will have to wait and see what comes to light. The antioxidant properties of green tea are healthy, but you can obtain the same benefit from drinking standard or rooibos tea. To lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake with a low-fat diet and increase your energy expenditure by doing exercise.
