Lose Stubborn Belly Fat with Ginger Lemon Tea

Ginger is known primarily as an aid to digestion and a treatment for inflammation, ginger is a beneficial addition to a weight-loss program aimed at reducing belly fat and obtaining a flat tummy. Belly fat accumulates for various reasons, including overeating, age-related hormone reduction, lack of exercise and stress.

As a digestive aid, ginger can reduce appetite through its regulatory effects on blood sugar and serum cholesterol. A few slices of fresh ginger simmered in a cup of water and consumed before a meal stimulates digestion.

Ginger suppresses cortisol production. Cortisol is a steroid hormone necessary to energy regulation and mobilization. But chronic stress can cause cortisol levels to rise too high. Adipose fat moves to the visceral area where it receives an increased blood supply that encourages tissues to produce an excess amount of cortisol. High cortisol levels may increase excess belly fat and weight gain.

Ginger is among the group of herbs and spices regarded as stimulants, having an effect similar to caffeine. Consume no more than 4 grams, or 2 teaspoons, of ginger per day. Pregnant women should take no more than 1 gram per day. Increased energy makes it easier to exercise and put more pep in your step, which will help you burn calories and flatten your tummy.


Start your digestive fires in the morning with a cup or two of ginger-lemon-honey tea.
