Enviga, a new green tea drink supplemented with calcium and caffeine is drawing criticism from scientists and consumer groups who say that this product doesn’t live up to its marketing promises that it is “proven to burn calories” and that it helps with weight loss.

Dr. Diet weighs in:

Specifically the critics of this new product say that there’s limited research on its calorie burning effects.

In one study that lasted only 3 days and involved 32 lean or normal weight people, study conclusions were that drinking 3 cans of Enviga boosted metabolism by about 100 calories and the team concluded that this drink could help with weight loss.

Scientists rebut these claims saying that the study only lasted 3 days and it was conducted on lean or normal weight individuals, not overweight individuals " and that the effects on overweight individuals are unknown.

A spokesman for the product said that they’re not trying to present Enviga as a weight loss product " that it’s not a magic bullet.

However, my take on this new product is this: products that say they’re “proven to burn calories” will attract the attention and pocketbooks of desperate dieters who will spend their money and time hoping to drink their way to weight loss.

As you follow through with your New Year’s resolutions, pay attention to claims that sound too good to be true " because they probably are.
