Three cups per day:
1) Take your first cup in the morning to instantly boost your metabolism and energy into weight-loss mode for the rest of the day.
2) Take your second cup in the afternoon to keep your metabolism working at high speed and to flush unwanted fat from your system.
3) Take your third and final cup in the evening to continue burning fat long after you have gone to sleep, putting your body on fat-burning autopilot even while you are inactive.
Oolong is widely known by scientists to increase metabolism and fat burning. Some studies suggest that it burns fat better than green tea by 157%.
Studies have shown repeatedly that drinking Oolong tea increases energy expenditure. According to an Article titled by researchers at the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center, ARS, USDA, in Beltsville, MD; and the Department of Nutrition, University of Tokushima, and Research Center, Suntory LTD., in Japan, Wu Long tea increased energy expenditure, or the total calories metabolized by the body in a given day increased, on average, 3.8%.
In women, a similar study showed that their body metabolism, as measured by a breath calorimeter, was higher in Oolongtea rather than green tea. The scientists conclude that drinking Wu Long displays statistically significant effects on the Energy Expenditure of Human subjects.
In another article in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry (2001) Oolong tea was also found to block fat absorption as well as fat storage in the liver and hearts of rats who consumed sucrose rich diets.
