We all like a smooth, flat belly! Unfortunately, for most people this doesn’t come easy. We tend to store fat around the waist which, coupled with possible constipation, gas and fluid retention, gives off the impression of a couple of extra pounds.
You do not even need to be overweight to have a bulging stomach; bloating and stomach fat affects slim people as well and is more prevalent in women. Storing excess fat in the abdominal area is a fairly normal occurrence and hard to beat, even after an intense workout with the correct abdominal exercises.
Often you may find that your smooth, flat stomach in the morning gradually expands throughout the day and is rounder and softer in the afternoon and evening, and then still more heavier after meals. This is not only because of our predominantly sedentary lifestyle, but also because certain things such as soda’s, too many carbohydrates and even certain fruit can cause a sagging belly.
With a few simple tips, however, you have a quick and healthy flat belly instead of feeling bloated. Here’s an easy recipe for a wonderful ginger, cucumber and mint detox water that will guaranteed deliver quick results!
The recipe for this delicious detox water is not only good for reducing bloating, but also reduces your waist size and will simultaneously take care of getting rid of excess weight in general. Why is this so and what are the effects of the ingredients in this simple recipe?
Lemon contains ascorbic acid, which is known to aid digestion by breaking down food more quickly, so that healthy nutrients can be easily absorbed by our bodies. The digestive enzyme pepsin is stimulated, which causes efficient absorption of certain proteins that are supportive towards weight loss. Lemon is therefore an excellent way to stimulate the metabolism, gives a quick satisfied feeling and prevents accumulation of gas in the digestive system. This delicious, fresh fruit should always be a part of any detox drink.
Lose weight with ginger? Absolutely! Ginger possesses well-known anti-inflammatory properties and its main building material, gingerol, is a very powerful antioxidant. Gingerol stimulates the activity of the intestines and stomach, reduces the accumulation of fat and prevents accumulation of gas. In combination with the other ingredients of this detox water, it makes for a real miracle drink for a nice, flat stomach.
No other herb is so powerful for the digestive system as mint. It calms the digestive tract and promotes smooth bowel movements. It supports the natural flow in the body, helps prevent heartburn and flatulence, is anti-inflammatory and is great for nausea.
