If there’s one thing that is at the top of a lot of people’s minds, especially around the festive season, it is weight loss. Don’t we all love to know about foods and drinks that can accelerate our journey towards reducing that number on the weighing scale?
Why drinks? Well, because it is almost instinctive to reach out to tea or caffeine for waking up! But that’s not going to help you at all. That’s why we have for you certain homemade drinks that can be made with simple kitchen ingredients and can spike your metabolism. Make sure to have them on an empty stomach.
“These drinks definitely help boost metabolism, make the body alkaline, and cut inflammation, all of which can help a person lose weight,” shares Kavita Devgan, renowned nutritionist, and author, with HealthShots.
Why does this combination work?
We already know the wonders of lemon to lose fat. It is said to reduce insulin resistance, and also reduces the amount of fat that is stored in the body. On the other hand, ginger has been shown to reduce hunger cravings. All in all, this combination also possesses immunity-boosting properties.
Cinnamon is power-packed with antioxidants, and at the same time, also helps with fat loss. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and fights diabetes. On the other hand, cumin is good for digestion and enhances the immune system. All in all, they are a match made in heaven.
Chia seeds are calcium-dense, and their soluble fibres help you lose weight. Lemon is packed with vitamin C, provides insulin resistance, and helps you lose all that stubborn fat. What a combination, we say!
