Green tea and mint can benefit your health and potentially your weight-loss efforts as well.
A morning cup of green tea on an empty stomach may damage your liver. Drinking it with a meal inhibits the absorption of iron in your body.
Drink it 2 hours before or after a meal and 2 hours before bedtime. Else, its caffeine and L-theanine amino acid can keep you alert. The tea, being a diuretic, can also disturb your sleep. For weight loss, drink it before you exercise, but restrict yourself to 2–3 cups a day.
Avoid this cooling drink in winter.
