There are so many types of weight loss program available in today’s life, but deciding which one works best for you is very difficult. However, personally I just thought that regardless of hereditary factors, there are so many ways that can help you lose weight without going to extremes.
One basic key is healthy eating. It is proven that healthy eating do not only maintain health at the most optimum level but if manipulated in a smart way can help you reduce your weight little by little. There is no point in eating a certain type of food for the rest of your life and wasted on other things necessary for your bodily functions. A normal person needs all nutritious for good health.
Another basic key is to move! Get moving to use more of the energy you consumed. By eating more than your body needs will only get your scale move higher. So, eat less that your body needs to get on with your daily routines. If you’ve eaten more, then you’ll just have to move more.
Okay, enough with the fundamental talks. In this post, I want to introduce to everyone who are struggling to lose weight to food that can raise up metabolism (other than green tea like what I’ve posted before). I managed to make a perfect combination of green tea and ginger and really feel the difference it make.
The benefits of ginger – food that speed up metabolism and more
Ginger has a long history, dated back since 5000 years ago for having efficient medicinal properties and as a wonderful cooking ingredient. Even though there are ginger can come in many form, fresh ginger is said to be the one that is most effective, more aromatic and of course, fresh!
Ginger root, one of the oldest spices in the world actually works best and publicized for its cold curing attributes rather than weight loss reduction. But it does both of those things anyway, and many other things as well. It has an ameliorating effect on a person’s digesting system and aids it for a better digestive process. It is said to increase and speed up metabolism, help digest fatty foods and break down proteins to be used by the body. How exactly it was done? Well, ginger has the effect of increasing the pH level of stomach acid, thus reducing acidity in the stomach. This will consequently lower the rate of gastric secretion and increase digestive enzyme activity.
Other healthy benefits of ginger include:
- It gives relief to the stomach and acts directly to it on reducing nausea and vomiting
- Good and effective on treating morning and motion sickness
- It helps in keeping out gas from the body, which can cause cramps and pains. That is why it works well against menstrual cramps too
- Able to reduce the amount of LDL cholesterol that the body absorbed
- Possible cure of diarrhea
- Improves and stimulate blood circulation and prevent blood clots from forming
- The perfect remedy for colds due to its warming effect
- Helps in reducing inflammation that can cause diseases such as arthritis and muscle strains
You can start cooking with ginger from today! If you want to try direct consumption, you can blend bits of fresh ginger and add it to your tea. For those who are not used to it will find the drink a little strong and pungent, but you will feel the difference it makes. Practice this everyday and see the difference yourself.
So, you see, there are so many health benefits of ginger that you can benefits from. I’ve been there and done it. Ginger really helps me in controlling my weight by keeping it steady even though there are times I tend to overeat. Just be sure that you don’t take it for granted. Depending on it alone won’t solve your weight problem. You will still have to be moderate with what you eat and exercise as often as you can.
