Green tea is a popular weight loss product.  It helps supports metabolism so you can burn calories throughout the day. According to a study published in an issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, green tea was shown to activate the body's thermogenic fat-burning activity. In this study, 690 mg of catechins ingested for 12 weeks, and resulted in significant reduction the subjects' total fat area, waist circumference, skinfold thickness and subcutaneous fat area.

Yerba mate is a stimulant with an ingredient known as mateine, which is similar to caffeine, without side effects. The mateine in yerba mate can help increase your metabolism and increase your energy, thereby burning fat in the process.

Yerba mate also has a relaxing effect that can calm your emotions and make you less prone to fall into overeating while stressed—a condition known as stress eating. This effect of yerba mate has also been known to stop cravings you may have for unhealthy foods. In addition, yerba mate has been found to slow down the rate of gastric emptying. This leads to dieters feeling fuller longer and less likely to overeat. It's easier to burn fat when you're not burning off all the excess food you're eating.
