Kourtney Kardashian often shares some of her favorite workout and diet tips on her app. And she recently revealed that she swears by green tea to keep her tummy flat.
In a recent post, Kardashian says she swore off coffee in her early twenties because it makes her “really hyper and really on edge.” Instead, she relies on green tea for her caffeine fix—she finds it delivers caffeine “much slower than with espresso or coffee, so it lasts longer.”
This two-minute core challenge will also help flatten your abs:
Kardashian also claimed that green tea helps keep her stomach flat, and even reduces cellulite. “Whenever I am trying to step up my workout regimen, I drink an extra iced green tea,” she wrote. “I swear it makes my tummy flatter. Also, green tea can help reduce the signs of cellulite.”
Despite the health benefits, it’s important to make sure you don’t overdo it on the stuff. A young woman in the UK was hospitalized after too much green tea gave her herb-induced hepatitis. And one study suggests that green tea can negatively affect fertility.
Overall, green tea is a great option if you want to cut down on coffee or make sure you’re getting your antioxidants. But don’t treat it as a magical potion that will instantly flatten your tummy or eradicate cellulite — you’ll be sorely disappointed.
