Drinking green tea may help you stop piling on the pounds by limiting how much fat is absorbed by the body, scientists say.
Researchers found a compound in the herbal drink slowed down weight gain in a study on mice. Crucially the mice were already obese at the start of the study from Penn State university.
author Joshua Lambert, said: 'Our results suggest that if you
supplement with EGCG or green tea you gain weight more slowly.' The researchers, who released their findings in the online version of Obesity, fed two groups of mice a high-fat diet.
