Another study suggests that green tea extract (or about 4-5 cups of green tea per day), over the long term, increases fat catabolism and exercise endurance. This I like. A good excuse to drink more green tea, and another way to increase my endurance for when I start going to the gym more regularly. The authors say they don't think the caffeine in the extracts affected their results, which is entirely possible (I've never heard of caffeine directly boosting lipolysis), but I wonder why they didn't just do the obvious control? Hmmm....this one will need to be replicated.
