Delicious Ginger Detox Drinks for Weight Loss


Delicious Ginger Detox Drink for Weight Loss

I hope you had a joyful Christmas! If you're like me, and overindulged this past weekend and gained water weight, not to worry, you can lose it by simply drinking a delicious weight loss ginger drink (which I'll share below).

Ginger has a long list of health benefits, a few of which include: weight loss, detoxification of the body, increases metabolism, gastrointestinal relief, increases immune system, anti-inflammatory, enhances satiety, increases energy, and it's a natural diuretic--all of which aids in weight loss. 


Ginger helps the body to shed fat by improving digestion by increasing the pH of the stomach and stimulating the digestive enzymes to break down food for better absorption.

It also aids in detoxing the body, which aids in the body’s ability to shed weight faster. Because ginger also has a high fiber content, when eaten fresh, it increases gastrointestinal motility. This enhances the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently and excrete non-essential food quicker.

A healthy digestive system that works efficiently can help process ingested food more proficiently, and this can contribute to weight loss because the bulking parts of ingested foods can be processed and eliminated quickly from the body.

Studies suggest that ginger is also a thermogenic agent that can help burn fat by boosting the metabolism ay a whopping 20%! Ginger increases the rate of metabolism and burns fat stores in the body, which helps in treating obesity.

By increasing the rate of metabolism, ginger can also help reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels as the body burns fat ingested more optimally.

You can use it dried or fresh ginger. It can be added to enhance the flavor of meats, salads, vegetables, soups, salad dressings, and teas. It adds a warm, robust flavor, which not only improves the deliciousness of foods and drinks, but it also aids in weight loss, digestion and clears the sinuses. In addition, using ginger to your diet is a great way to detox your body. 

Start your day off with a cup of delicious warm ginger weight loss drink. 

To start your day off right and kick your metabolism into high gear to shed weight fast, make a warm ginger weight loss drink each morning and drink it 20 minutes prior to eating breakfast. 

Here is a delicious ginger detox drink to shed weight fast and feel great!

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
