Everyone loves to look slim by shedding weight, but it is no easy task. Moreover, reducing your tummy is even more difficult. A person with a pot belly would have a hard time hiding it, whatever clothes are chosen. In fact, some dresses are not at all suitable for some with a bulge in the tummy. Considering the health aspect too, pot belly is not desirable as it could cause heart problems and Type 2 diabetes.
All this makes reducing fat in the abdomen essential. However, this may not be possible by workouts alone. In addition, you need to get regular sleep as well as follow a suitable diet.
The daily food intake should include fluids that boost metabolism and they have to be consumed even before going to bed every night. These drinks would burn fat deposited in the body by increasing metabolic levels. Two drinks that help rein in the bulging belly are cucumber-lemon juice and ginger tea. Here is how they can be prepared.
Peel a cucumber and chop it into fine pieces. Crush a lemon and add its juice along with a handful of parsley leaves and half-a-cup of water to the cucumber. Transfer the entire ingredients to a juice mixer and beat it into a juice. More water can be added if needed.
Each of these ingredients helps burn or check accumulation of fat. For instance, cucumber has zero amount of fat and a minute level of calories. As it has plenty of fibres, the vegetable prevents constipation too. Meanwhile, parsley is a diuretic and rich in Vitamins A, B, C and K. On the other hand, lemon provides taste to the drink as well as boosts digestion.
Cucumber-lemon juice can be taken after supper every day.
This drink gives a big relief from the uneasiness felt after overeating. Studies have shown that ginger is a good remedy for stomach-related problems and improves digestion. It is also known to remove toxic substances from the body, leading to rapid weight-loss.
To prepare ginger tea, take one-and-a-half teaspoon of ginger chopped into fine small pieces, a cup of water and one teaspoon of honey. A teaspoon of lemon juice also can be added if needed.
First, boil water and then add ginger along with other items to it. Keep for 10 minutes and sieve the liquid before drinking it.
