Belly fat is a common cause of worry to both men and women. It affects even slim people with a flat stomach. When it comes to fat, there are two types – one fat is under your skin while the other is deeper inside your body, surrounding your internal organs, including your lungs, liver, heart etc.
Apart from being unappealing, belly fat is also really unhealthy, especially visceral fat – the one that’s deeper in the abdomen. Excess belly fat can be the reason for type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart diseases, insulin resistance, some types of cancer, dementia, high blood pressure and many more.
There are a number of factors that contribute to excess belly fat, and the most common include your diet, lifestyle, and age. If you want to reduce your belly fat, it’s vital to make changes in your life. For example:
Exercise – Get into a habit of exercising moderately for 30 minutes at least 5 days a week.
Diet – Reconsider your diet in terms of nutrients. A healthy diet is essential for losing weight, and belly fat too.
Stress – Reduce stress and have enough rest.
Even if these lifestyle changes prove ineffective, you can still try an alternative solution.
This is the best homemade recipe to burn belly fat successfully: Ginger Lemon Honey Tea!!!
- 4 cups of water
- 1 peeled and sliced ginger
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Put the ginger in 4 cups of water, and boil it for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice. Mix it and add honey.
- Drink one cup of this tea in the morning. For even better results, have 2-3 cups a day.
As ginger has thermogenic properties, it raises your body temperature thus stimulating the fat burning process in your body. Plus, ginger acts against cortisol production. Cortisol is a steroid hormone essential to the maintenance of homeostasis. It is also called “the stress hormone” because it regulates many of the changes that occur in the body in response to stress.
