    Green tea is only good for weight loss as a stimulant. It contains caffeine, which increases your metabolism, which can help you burn more calories (although only if you're actually exercising already), and can decrease your appetite.

    You could also get that caffeine from coffee or caffeine pills with the same effect. Other than caffeine, there is nothing about green tea which is specifically weight loss causing, afaik.

    CB is right.

    But I'll go further and state that multiple studies have indicated that the effect of caffeine is not significant enough to induce statistically relevant weight loss.

    You could drink water, diet colas, or any other calorie-free drink and get the same results.

    I'm going to briefly describe Green Tea as mentioned on page 10 of The Superfoods Rx Diet by Wendy Bazilian, Steven Pratt, and Kathy Mathews. A book I'm slowly incorporating into my own life with much success and ease(though the book has a different plan, I find that instead of doing a straight up diet plan off the bat that if I just incorporate certain aspects one at a time I tend to keep performing those aspects instead of jumping off the bandwagon altogether. This book is becoming my bible basically as it's not an atkin's diet like thing that prevents you from eating stuff your body actually needs forcing it to loose weight. But instead you eat what your body wants with portion control and incorporation of nutrient rich super foods that have proven properties that help you.

    So on the page mentioned through the next 2 pages it discuss's green tea and tea in general. It mentions the caffeine briefly and that originally it was thought that caffeine was responsible but that they are finding mild thermogenic properties that go beyond what caffeine can explain.

    Green tea also helps your body regulate insulin. It also has polyphenols that fight inflammation that is a major player in overweight people and possibly how I've lost 15lbs so quickly after adding green tea to my daily diet and still loosing.

    It's not going to make you skinny, but whether you are in shape or not I would say that including green tea and other tea's into your daily diet can help you in someway no matter what. It's hard to diet, it's easy to drink tea.

    I'll add that any tea is probably good for you as they have antioxidants, so no, drinking tea probably can't harm you, and might help you slightly at the very least. Just don't add milk to your tea- it cancels out the antioxidants and other good properties. (Of course, I almost exclusively drink British tea with milk, but that's just because I can't resist the tastiness).

    There are a lot of weight-loss gimmicks out there. Green tea is harmless and, like some other posters said, have good-for you antioxidants. However, it's not going to do much for you in terms of weight-loss.
