Trying to eat healthy but just can’t? Don’t worry you are not alone. The main downfall for many of us trying to lose weight is the unavailability of ingredients or just not having enough time to devote to being healthy. And don’t forget the stress levels shooting through the roof.

Sometimes fitting in a daily workout session itself seems like an impossible task. And not to forget the various temptations that you keep falling prey to during the entirety of your day. Mindless snacking is a mechanism that many of us use when faced with stress and anxiety. Our work environments are prime setups for overeating out of stress given the array of usually unhealthy foods stocked in the office pantry. So, what do you do when you are halfway through a bag of potato chips and start feeling the guilt coming on?

Brew yourself a cup of green tea! We are not claiming that this will reverse the effects of unhealthy habits, but it is the arsenal you need to balance the bad with the good.  A cup of green tea has a whopping five times the antioxidants of an apple – and considering antioxidants are damage-fighting elements that clean your system from the inside, we can’t think of a single good reason not to add green tea to your diet, whether it’s balanced or not. Still don’t believe us? Watch the above video featuring mobiefit’s fitness expert, Shwetha Bhatia, where she gives you the low-down on why green tea is so great! Loaded with polyphenols and antioxidants, consuming even one single cup of green tea can have a “detox effect” on your body.

This video is part of an exclusive series of “Detox Your Body” Youtube series in collaboration with Tetley Green Tea, where fitness enthusiasts and experts will share there Detox Mantras.
