If you are reading this article it is probably you had some tough lunches, like Christmas or Easter.
Or simply becauseyou want to lose weight by switching to herbal teas of which you have heard so much talk.
Our bodies are fatter, weighed down by the long lunches and long dinners of this holiday season.
But if we think towards the spring and summer season, we need to get back in shape .
There is nothing worse, after all, than feeling bloated when you are trying to look your best.
If we are already thinking about the wedding season that is at the door or trying to get into our bathing suit we really have to think of something that will make us feel better and lose weight in peace.[sc name="LOSE WEIGHT" ]
Instead of trying adetox diet or the diets that involve fasting (| ||121leggi qui further details) which could eventually make the situation rather challenging and leave us without energy, so I thought instead of a slimming herbal tea.
All the ingredients they are natural and can be found at your local grocery store.
Plus, this drink is delicious and super easy to make.[ninja-inline id=3386]
Slimming herbal tea: ingredients
- 8 green tea bags, preferably containing caffeine
- 8 cups filtered water
- 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 large orange, thinly sliced
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- A handful of fresh mint
Bring the filtered water to a boil.
Remove the water from the heat and add the green tea bags to steep for about 5 minutes.
While the tea is steeping, add the slices of cucumber, orange, lemon and put everything in a large pitcher.
Add the grated ginger.
Quando il tè è fatto ed è macerato, versatelo nella brocca riempita con la frutta fresca e lo zenzero.
Put the mint leaves into the pitcher and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
This drink it will stay fresh for up to two days in the refrigerator.
And don't tell me it's not easy to do!
One mistake people commonly make when trying to lose weight is drink ready-made smoothies. Obviously you will think that the smoothie is just fruit and ice.
The big chain stores that sell the smoothies certainly don't sell 100% natural smoothies, these are full of sugar hidden away, loaded with fructose.
While they certainly can nourish and make you feel full, they certainly aren't what your body requires to stay in shape and they're definitely not healthy.
This herbal tea slimming, on the other hand, is exactly the opposite of a smoothie and is sugar-free.
The heat with the healthy base of green tea throws out all the nutrients of fresh fruit and vegetables and the cold from the fridge makes so that they keep.
I drink this mixture during the day and I always try to prepare myself with this slimming herbal tea a couple of days before an event I have to attend.
I also try to drink this recipe whenever I'm feeling a little bloated or sluggish.
And it's a sneaky way to include more water in my diet.
Diciamolo chiaro, l’acqua da sola può diventare noioso, ma non c’è niente di meglio per non farti avere così tanta voglia di mangiare.
The water or tea you drink during day also serve to lower the levels of sodium in our body and to hydrate us.
This drink that I have proposed works well also because all the ingredients are studied ad hoc.
Let's look at them specifically.
The benefits of green tea
Green tea has always been present, we find it among the ancient Chinese, the Japanese, in Indian culture for centuries , but has gained popularity more recently as an essential weight loss aid.
Researcherssay: the two ingredients found in tea green, catechins and caffeine, are believed to be responsible for improving the metabolism in overweight and obese adults.
In one study, researchers gave 10 healthy men a mix of green tea extract (which contains caffeine), caffeine or a placebo.
The choice was random.
The results indicate that when men consumed the green tea extract, showed a significant increase in energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
Men who consumed the placebo and caffeine alone showed no increase.|| |222
Guardiamo alcune ulteriori ricerche.
In thisarticle, the US National Library of Medicine pool has put together 11 studies on how green tea aids in weight loss. and weight maintenance.
The results showed that “catechins help significantly decrease body weight and maintain it after weight loss.”
Dr. Mercola , an alternative medicine advocate, claims that the epigallocatechin (EGCG) in green tea has been shown to increase fat oxidation by 33%.
All in all, green tea is a real fat burner. fat.
Oranges for weight loss
Oranges are rich in fiber and vitamin C, making them excellent for weight loss and boosting immunity.| ||239
La tisana dimagrante vi darà i benefici della vitamina C ma per avere anche la fibra bisogna che l’arancia si mangi.
That's why I like to take the orange slices outside from the jug and eat them so you can get both the benefits of fiber and vitamin C.
Fiber keeps our stomachs full for a while because it leads to slower digestion, so it is perfect for those who want to feel full. I recommend the orange as a snack.
Laura Flores, a nutritionist in San Diego explains: “Oranges are a low-fat, nutrient-rich food with a low glycemic index, making it a ideal food for protection against obesity, which can lead to other diseases such as those affecting the heart, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and strokes ".
So I don't just take oranges in this herbal tea, but I also try to eat them at least twice a week.
The benefits of cucumber
Cucumbers are amazing.
They arepieni vitamins like K, C, A and B6, plus minerals like magnesium, potassium, manganese, calcium and iron. Potassium, magnesium and calcium are electrolytes that are always found in sports drinks, but they are naturally present in cucumbers.
The benefits of eating cucumbers range from beautiful skin to healthy bones, from fighting constipation to bad breath.
Of course, my favorite reason is that they help with weight loss and reduce sugar cravings.
Similar to oranges, cucumbers are high in fiber.
Since cucumbers have natural diuretic properties, your body will deflate by no longer holding water.
Cucumbers are low in calories and make a great snack, like oranges.
The perfect lemon to lose weight
According toFit Day, “Drinking water and lemon helps speed up weight loss … also ensures that some of the toxins in your body are expelled with a crazy metabolism boost also linked to a natural detox.” | ||275
I limoni danno una sferzata di energia al nostro organismo.
I absolutely do not recommend trying a diet in which fasting is foreseen but if you decide to detox this slimming herbal tea will not lead you to stay without energy also thanks to the presence of lemons.
The magic ginger
Ginger tea can help reduce stomach pains, nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, but did you know that can it even be amazing for weight loss?
Onestudy that I found investigates the effects of drinking 2 grams of powdered ginger dipped in hot water.
According to this study: “feeling of satiety was assessed hourly using analog scales and blood samples were taken fasting and 3 hours after breakfast consumption.”
Results showed that participants felt less hungry after consuming ginger powder in water.
But that's not the only good news.
Medical News Today also notes that ginger helps increase energy, while reducing weight.
Researchers have found that ginger has virtually no calories and contains “a number of other health-promoting anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.”
What more could you ask for?
Personally, I love the taste of ginger
Mint in the diet
I'm not a big fans of all things pes beforehand with mint. However, there is something special about fresh mint leaves.
They make such a difference in flavor and are so refreshing that they always change my mind.
When it comes to loss of weight, mint is also the secret weapon for stomach bloating.
According to theUniversity of Maryland Medical Center, mint can :
- relax the muscles that allow gas to pass by reducing bloating
- soothe the stomach muscles
- improve the flow of bile which the body uses to digest fats
- help treat the symptoms of irritable bowel.
So mint is really a holy hand for all those who suffer from stomach, bloating related to intestinal problems and that just makes it a perfect addition to my weight loss tea too.
The best part about using all these fresh, healthy ingredients together is the fact that this drink has a lot of flavor. ia tastes really good.
Although it doesn't guarantee a significant drop in weight loss, meaning you don't lose ten kilos in a day it is certainly a great option to try to feel better about yourself and lose a few kilos which in these days of January wouldn't hurt.
