Besides general discomfort, being overweight can also cause various health problems, including diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. However, you don’t need to be overweight in order to have belly fat – almost every person, skinny, normal-weight and overweight has to deal with excess belly weight.
The good news is, there are a few things one can do in order to reduce his/her belly fat, no matter their current weight. Besides a good, healthy diet, rich in key nutrients, healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals, regular exercise is a must. But to really kick it off, it’s good to include at least one “fat-burner” type of a drink into your everyday diet.
Fat-burning drinks are usually juices that boost your metabolism and help your body burn fat more easily and quickly. Today, you’ll learn a recipe for one.
- 1 cucumber, chopped into small pieces,
- 2 cups of sliced pineapple,
- 2 celery stalks,
- 1 cup of parsley,
A bit of crushed ginger and lemon juice.
After you’ve thoroughly washed and sliced the fruits and veggies, put them all in a blender and blend until you get a smooth consistency. If you like your beverages cold, you can add an ice cube into the mix (after you pour the drink into a glass). Do not add any sweetener, including honey. It’s important to drink it while it’s fresh – that way, you’ll be getting all the nutrients available.
This fat-burning juice should be consumed every morning, before breakfast (on an empty stomach). If you don’t feel hungry in the morning, feel free to replace your breakfast with this drink.
Consume this juice for one week and check your results – you should notice a big improvement in your belly area! You can even repeat the process for another week if you wish.
