Most personal goals revolve around losing weight. After all, we all want to look good. However, the reality is that the benefits of weight loss go far beyond what you see in the mirror. When you burn fat, you reduce your risk of obesity and can also potentially reverse diabetes.
So, why not try a drink that not only burns fat, but also curbs sweet cravings. But first let me tell you about the ingredients.
The top two fat-burning foods
According to research, cinnamon and ginger are excellent for your waistline. Cinnamon suppresses appetite and mimics sweetness. This can help you cut back on sweet cravings and in turn reduce your sugar intake. In addition, cinnamon is not only proven to improve cognitive function, but promotes healthy blood sugar levels and protects your heart health. Ginger, on the other hand, is a thermogenic food. This means, it raises the temperature of the body, thus boosting metabolism and calorie burning.
Honey, a natural sweetener, contains 22 amino acids and a variety of minerals essential for its metabolism. therefore, it is helpful in preventing obesity. Numerous studies have shown how honey positively increases the levels of “good” cholesterol in the body, and also helps reduce cardiovascular strain. This in turn, leads a more active and healthy life.
A combination of ginger, cinnamon and honey makes this fast burning process more effective. This is especially true when you drink this combination using the tea recipe below.
