I highly recommend drinking green tea. The green tea polyphenol, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in combination with caffeine (50 milligrams caffeine, 90 milligrams EGCG) has been shown to enhance 24-hour energy expenditure in human test subjects. In this same clinical study, treatment with caffeine alone had no effect on energy expenditure, indicating the effect of green tea in promoting fat burning goes beyond that explained solely by its caffeine content. Other scientific data indicate that green tea polyphenols in combination with caffeine synergistically enhance thermogenesis (fat burning).
