No mat­ter what phase of the diet plan you’re on, drink­ing green tea is a tasty, nat­u­ral way to man­age your blood sugar, ac­cord­ing to an anal­y­sis of 17 stud­ies of green tea pub­lished in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nutri­tion. It linked this fra­grant tea to low­er­ing both fast­ing lev­els of blood sugar and lev­els of HbA1c, which in­di­cates the pres­ence of long-term glu­cose in the blood. One study even found that green tea in­creases the body’s abil­ity to burn fat! Stud­ies have shown that four cups a day brings the most ben­e­fit. Switch that ket­tle on!
