Herbal teas for weight loss: prepare your drink to lose weight

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve had some tough lunches, like Christmas or Easter.

Or simply because you want to lose weight by going from the herbal teas you have heard so much about.

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, on the other hand, than the feeling of bloating when you are trying to look your best.

If we already have to think about the wedding season that is upon us or try to get into our bathing suit we really need to think about something that makes us feel better and lose weight in peace.

[sc name = “SLIMMING”]Instead of trying a detox diet or diets that involve fasting ( read more details here) which could eventually make the situation quite challenging and leave us without energy, I thought instead of a slimming herbal tea.

All the ingredients are natural and can be found at your grocery store.

Plus, this drink is delicious and super easy to make.

Slimming herbal tea: ingredients

Index Article

  • 8 green tea bags, preferably containing caffeine
  • 8 cups of filtered water
  • 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 large orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves

Instructions

Bring the filtered water to a boil.

Remove the water from the heat and add the green tea bags to infuse for about 5 minutes.

While the tea is steeping, add the slices of cucumber, orange, lemon and put everything in a large jug.

Add the grated ginger.

When the tea is done and steeped, pour it into the pitcher filled with the fresh fruit and ginger.

Throw the mint leaves into the pitcher and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.

This drink 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 drinking pre-made smoothies. Obviously you will think that the smoothie is just fruit and ice.

No.

The big chain stores that sell smoothies certainly don’t sell 100% natural smoothies, these are full of hidden sugars, loaded with fructose.

While they certainly can nourish and make you feel full, they certainly aren’t what your body is asking for to stay fit and they’re definitely not healthy.

This slimming herbal tea, on the other hand, is exactly the opposite of a smoothie and is sugar-free.

The heat with the healthy green tea base throws out all the nutrients in the fresh fruit and vegetables and the cold from the fridge keeps them conserving.

I drink this blend throughout the day and always try to prepare myself with this weight loss tea a couple of days before an event I have to attend.

I also try to drink this recipe whenever I feel a little bloated or lazy.

And it’s a sneaky way to include more water in my diet.

Let’s face it, water alone can get boring, but there’s nothing better than making you want to eat so badly.

Water or tea drunk throughout the day also serves to lower sodium levels in our body and 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

Herbal teas to lose weight prepare your drink to lose weight in 2 minutes: the benefits of green tea

Green tea has been around forever, we find it among the ancient Chinese, the Japanese, in Indian culture for centuries, but it has gained popularity more recently as a vital weight loss aid.

The researchers say : the two ingredients found in green tea, catechins and caffeine, are believed to be responsible for improving 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 green tea extract, they showed a significant increase in energy expenditure and fat oxidation.

Men who consumed the placebo and caffeine alone showed no increase.

Let’s look at some further research.

In this article , 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 to significantly decrease body weight and keep it stable after weight loss.”

Dr Mercola, an alternative medicine advocate, claims that the epigallocatechin (EGCG) in green tea showed a 33% increase in fat oxidation.

In short, green tea is a real fat burner.

Orange to lose weight

Oranges are rich in fiber and vitamin C, which make them excellent for weight loss and boosting immunity.

The slimming herbal tea will give you the benefits of vitamin C but to also have the fiber you need to eat the orange.

That’s why I like to take the orange slices out of the pitcher and eat them so I can have both the fiber and vitamin C benefits.

Fiber causes our stomach to be full for a while because it induces slower digestion, so it’s perfect for those who want to feel full. I recommend orange as a snack.

Laura Flores, a nutritionist from San Diego explains, “Oranges are a low-fat, nutrient-rich food with a low glycemic index, making it an ideal food for protection against obesity, which can lead to other diseases such as those affecting the heart, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke “.

So I don’t only take oranges in this herbal tea, but I also try to eat them at least twice a week.

The benefits of cucumber

Cucumbers are great.

They are full of vitamins like K, C, A and B6, plus minerals like magnesium, potassium, manganese, calcium and iron. Potassium, magnesium and calcium are the 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 bone health, 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 and no longer retain water.

Cucumbers are low in calories and make a great snack, like oranges.

The perfect lemon for weight loss

According to Fit Day , “Drinking lemon water helps accelerate weight loss … also ensures that some of the toxins in your body are excreted with a crazy metabolic boost that’s also linked to a natural detox.”

Lemons give our body a boost of energy.

I absolutely do not recommend trying a fasting diet but if you decide to detoxify yourself, this slimming herbal tea will not lead you to run out of energy thanks to the presence of lemons.

The magic ginger

Ginger tea can help reduce stomach aches, nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, but did you know it can also be amazing for weight loss?

study I found investigates the effects of drinking 2 grams of powdered ginger soaked in hot water.

According to this study: “The feeling of satiety was evaluated hourly using analog scales and blood samples were taken on an empty stomach and 3 hours after eating breakfast.”

The results showed that the participants felt less hungry after consuming the 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.

The researchers found that ginger has virtually no calories and contains “numerous other health-promoting anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds.”

What more could you ask for?

And I personally love the taste of ginger

Mint in the diet

Herbal teas to lose weight prepare your drink to lose weight in 2 minutes: mint in the diet

I’m not a huge fan of anything heavily minted. However, there is something special about fresh mint leaves.

They make such a difference in flavor and are so refreshing that they always make me change my mind.

When it comes to weight loss, mint is also the secret weapon for stomach bloating.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center , mint can:

  • relax the muscles that allow the passage of gas by reducing swelling
  • calm the stomach muscles
  • improve the flow of bile that the body uses to digest fat
  • help treat irritable bowel symptoms.

So mint is truly a holy hand for all those who suffer from stomach, bloating related to intestinal problems and this does nothing but make it a perfect element also for my slimming herbal tea.

The best part about using all of these fresh and healthy ingredients together is the fact that this drink tastes really good.

While it doesn’t guarantee a significant drop in weight loss, which means you don’t lose ten pounds in one day it’s definitely a great option to try to get better about yourself and lose a few pounds that wouldn’t hurt these January days. .

And you?
