    Green tea CAN be a good aid, yes. Has to be a certain kind however to reap the benefits it offers.

    Of course, this "supplement" won't do diddly jack-$hit unless your diet/cardio is spot on. You may want to list those, as often times people think they have a great diet laid out, and the opposite holds true.

    all teas contain antioxidant properties.
    any way you look at it tea is just plain healthy.
    from a ripping-up aspect, tea is also helpfull.

    tea contains small amounts of theobromine and theophylline, counsins to caffeine, which increase thermogenesis.
    three or four cups a day while dieting could precent a drop in your metabolic rate.

    green tea is a good source of catechin polyphenols, compounds that may increase the total amount of calories burned in any given day.

    although black tea lacks catechin polyphenols, it would be wise to alternate between drinking green and black tea, because some weight-loss experts note that the two forms work by somewhat different mechanisms.

    tea is also a mild appetite suppressant.
