Belly fat is the most harmful fat in your body, linked to many diseases. Too much fat around the stomach can lead to development of heart disease, hypertension, metabolic dysfunctions, asthma, Alzheimer`s disease, atherosclerosis, lower fertility and problems with male and female reproductive organs.
If you have too much belly fat you should change your lifestyle immediately. Try to cut off the sugar intake, drink enough water and get enough sleep. Also, you should change your diet habits and try to consume food rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
This recipe is a combination of spinach, ginger and lemon. It is a powerful combination which targets belly fat. It is loaded with vitamin C which has the ability to speed up the fat-burning process. Also, it participates in the production of carnitine, a compound which the body uses to convert fat into energy. Therefore, this drink will help you fight obesity, reduce weight and melt your belly fat.
Drinking this juice the first thing in the morning will speed up your metabolism, boost your energy and melt your belly fats. Consume the drink the first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before breakfast.
Today, for Healthy Wednesday, I decided to try it myself and made a tasty ACV morning cocktail, a modification from a recipe found here. At first, I was terrified of what it would taste like, because of its strong odor, but it was actually really refreshing and crisp!
Detox Morning Elixir Recipe
– 1 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
– 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
– 1 Tbsp raw honey
– 1 tsp grated ginger
– 2 oz of filtered water
Mix all the ingredients and drink, warm or cold.
Why this combo is good for you:
Apple Cider Vinegar balances pH levels, cleanses the digestive system, reduces bloating, balances glucose and insulin levels. An alkaline pH can decrease risk of infection, increase energy, and prevent growth of unhealthy cells in our body.
Raw Honey balances out the intense flavor, and adds enzymes and vitamins. It is anti inflammatory and a natural source of energy.
Lemon is full of vitamin C, and is used to aid digestion and fluid retention.
Ginger is an excellent digestive aid and immune booster.
I have to say I immediately felt great and refreshed, and knowing how good this is for me, I will make it a point to enjoy my morning elixir everyday. Just make sure to buy a ACV that is organic, raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized, which you can easily identify by the strands that settle at the bottom of the bottle, known as “mother”. The “mother” contains proteins, the good bacteria and natural nutrients that make ACV a true health-booster.
