Ginger can improve digestion by increasing the pH of the stomach and stimulating the digestive enzymes. Because ginger also has a high fiber content, it increases gastrointestinal motility. The combination of these two effects means that essential nutrients are absorbed quickly while the non-essential foods that cause bloating and constipation are excreted quickly.
An efficient digestive system can help process ingested food more efficiently, and this can contribute to weight loss because the bulking parts of ingested foods can be efficiently processed and eliminated from the body. In addition, an efficient digestion means an optimal use of the energy store of the body. Therefore, the processes involved in digestion can help use up the glucose in the blood as well as stored fat.
A number of studies suggest that ginger is also a thermogenic agent that can help burn fat. A Dutch study confirm that ginger can boost the body’s metabolic rate and should be recommended for treating obesity. In addition, there are reports that ginger can boost metabolism by up to 20%.
By increasing the rate of metabolism, ginger can help burn off some of the fat stored up in the body. This not only translates to weight loss but can also help reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels as the body burns all the fat it is provided. Ginger can improve weight loss by enhancing the feeling of fullness after a meal. By suppressing appetite, ginger supplementation is an effective way of avoiding ingesting more calories from food, and therefore, losing weight.
Drinking plenty of water can help you lose weight. This is due to the fact that water can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate.
In two studies, drinking half a liter (17 ounces) of water was shown to increase metabolism by 24-30% for up to 1.5 hours (26, 27). This means that drinking 2 liters of water every day can increase your total energy expenditure by up to 96 calories per day.
The timing is important too, and drinking water half an hour before meals is the most effective. It can make you feel more full, so that you eat fewer calories.
In one study, dieters who drank half a liter of water before meals lost 44% more weight, over a period of 12 weeks.
It is actually best to drink water cold, because then the body will use additional energy (calories) to heat the water to body temperature.
Cucumbers are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and have a whole host of health benefits associated with them. One benefit is their ability to help you lose weight. In nutrition, calories are used to describe the amount of energy your body absorbs when certain foods are eaten.
Adding lemon to water does provide additional weight-loss benefits, including liver cleansing and blood purifying.
The more efficiently the liver is working, food will digest quicker and more completely and toxins will be removed from the body more effectively.
The cleaner the blood is and the smoother the blood flow, oxygen and other essential nutrients will be delivered to the cells more efficiently to improve energy, metabolism, and overall body balance.
You may not have thought of mint as an appetite suppressant, but it is. Not only will it give the water a refreshing flavor it will stop food cravings too.
