Losing weight, especially abdominal fat, can be very challenging and tough, particularly when the belly fat you are dealing with is quite stubborn and persistent. However, melting the excess fat is possible, even while you are asleep. Here are a couple of bedtime drinks that will help you burn abdominal fat faster.
“Both belly bulge and love handles are about excess body fat, not lack of muscle… The best way to reduce these problem areas is to reduce your overall body fat percentage, and we all know that that requires diet and exercise.” – Jillian Michaels
10 Bedtime Drinks That Burn Stomach Fat
Juice a few fresh cucumbers for a delicious and healthy bedtime drink. If you find the flavor too strong, add water as desired. Grating ginger on the juice or squeezing some lemons is also a good idea, if you are looking to make the drink even tastier.
The cucumbers have a relatively low calorie intake and are mostly water, but they are filled with fiber, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants that assist with weight loss. They promote digestion and help keep the blood sugar levels in check.
Lemon and Cucumber Juice
Drinking lemon water on a regular basis can provide a great deal of health benefits, including losing abdominal fat. According to a study published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, people who consumed lemon juice 4 times per day while fasting improved their lipid profile and reduced their body fat mass. To make it even tastier, you can combine the drink with a cucumber or an orange.
Cucumber and Cilantro Drink
This drink is also filled with antioxidants which help to flush out the toxic matter that has built up and the fat from the body. Mix a cucumber, a cup of cilantro, lemon and a half a glass of water. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of Aloe Vera juice and grated ginger and enjoy.
Ginger is already known for its widespread range of health benefits, but a recent study suggests that it is effective at fighting obesity as well. It works by aiding in food digestion, alleviating stomach discomfort, promoting better nutrient absorption and helping to melt abdominal fat. To make ginger tea tastier, add a teaspoon of honey or squeeze in a lemon or two.
Dandelion tea is great for relieving heartburn, bloating, and other forms of stomach discomfort. Being a natural diuretic, it also helps flush out toxins and excess water weight from the body.
The green tea contains little to no caffeine, so it helps the body become more relaxed. As you sleep, you can boost and speed up your metabolism to prevent any weight gain. As an added bonus, the green tea is a great antioxidant which helps with weight loss.
According to the Joslin Diabetic Center, fiber-rich food like pineapple can make you feel full without adding to your belly fat. Just like lemon, a glass of freshly squeezed pineapple is refreshing and tasty. You can enjoy it warm too.
Strawberry with Lemon and Herbs
Strawberries contain phytochemicals which help with losing weight and protect against heart disease and cancer. They also contain compounds which block out the hormones which raise the blood sugar, interfere with weight loss and trigger inflammation.
Grapefruit and Cinnamon Juice
Grapefruit is extremely filling and hydrating. It is also packed with a plethora of nutrients and helps to boost the metabolism. You can either buy grapefruit juice or use freshly blended one. Mix a glass of water, cinnamon stick and sugar to taste. Let it sit for a few minutes before combining it with cold water and grapefruit. Additionally, you can garnish it with mint.
Apple Cider Vinegar Juice
Thanks to its antibacterial and antibiotic properties, the apple cider vinegar can help with intestinal spasms, stomach upsets and diarrhea. Mix a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water and garnish the drink with some slices from a fresh apple.
