Want to Lose Weight? Drink Up!

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 74 percent of American men age 20 and older and 64 percent of women the same age are either overweight or obese. Those numbers have been creeping up for decades, and it looks like they’ll continue to do so for the foreseeable future. As Americans’ waistlines get bigger, so do the number of products, recipes, miraculous discoveries, and “weird tricks” that promise to melt away those extra pounds with little or no work.

From time to time weight loss hucksters cite a study (including “luminaries” such as Dr. Oz, who recently appeared in front of a Senate subcommittee and admitted that some of the amazing weight loss drinks he promotes on his show don’t pass “scientific muster”). But for the most part, there’s little or no evidence to back up their claims (and most of those studies turn out to be flawed or simply made up).

That said, there are a handful (actually, not quite a handful) of drinks that may indeed accelerate weight loss. In this article, we take a look at the ones with the most science behind them.
