Start your day in a fat-burning action! Consume 2 glasses of this drink in the morning and you will get rid of excess body fat once and for all!
Grapefruit is a low-glycemic food, which prevents blood sugar from spiking. Low-glycemic foods eaten at breakfast prior to a workout will burn 50 percent more fat than high-glycemic foods, according to a study published in 2009 in the “Journal of Nutrition.” Grapefruit contains fat-burning and weight-loss properties, as confirmed by a 2006 study in the “Journal of Medicinal Food.” The consumption of grapefruit creates a negative caloric balance, meaning the body burns more calories during digestion than the calories it has. Grapefruit is also a diuretic that rids the body of excess fluid and reduces cellulite appearance.
If you want to deflate that spare tyre and get rid of the extra flab taking pomegranate juice every day could be the help you need.
An Edinburgh University research group found that volunteers who drank a daily dose of half a litre of pomegranate juice were less likely to develop fatty cells around their abdomen.
The researchers believe that the pomegranate juice may lower the amount of fatty acid in the blood known as nonesterified fatty acid or NEFA.
Previous studies in humans and animals have shown that high NEFA levels are linked to a greater storage of fat around the abdomen as well as an increased risk of heart disease and Type II diabetes.
Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple promotes burning of fats, according to The University of Maryland Medical Center. This important enzyme is often used as an anti-inflammatory agent and aids in restoring health to the muscles and skin cells. Vitamin C, a nutrient found pineapple also helps in repair of muscles and skin. These two agents are also necessary to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Pineapple is a natural diuretic that acts as an antagonist against water retention which is important for reducing belly fat efficiently.
