Belly fat buster
Today’s morning routine for most career girls looks the same- wake up early, rush to the gym, eat a healthy breakfast and head out to work. Working out every day is a must but most complain that it still does nothing for the belly fat. No matter where they lose weight, the belly refuses to go down. For some, this leads to serious health problems like high blood sugar, PCOS, hormonal imbalance etc.
What if we told you that coupled with all that working out and strict diet there’s one more secret that you can add to your routine and all in less than a minute. Say hello to the ‘magic tea’, a combination of simple kitchen ingredients—cinnamon, turmeric and ginger.
Here’s what you do…
- Boil two cups of water with a small bit of cinnamon (dalchini) and ginger
- Put into a teacup and add half a teaspoon of turmeric
- Stir and sip
- Add honey if you need sweetening
Studies say that half a teaspoon of cinnamon contains antioxidants called polyphenols. They are rich in vitamins – C, K, as well as minerals. Cinnamon also has calcium, iron and manganese, cures indigestion, gas, bloating, heartburn and diarrhoea, and controls blood sugar levels, cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity and heart disease.
Ginger the magic root also works on obesity, heart disease, leads to a glowing complexion, shiny hair and renewed energy. While turmeric helps the body fight infections, repair damage, and keeps the brain function at optimum levels.
Put all these three magic ingredients together and you’ve got a cup of tea that is unbeatable. Sip it every night and your belly fat literally begins to fade away.
But you have to be consistent for it to work its magic. So skip the vodka tonight, and sip some tea instead. Your body will thank you the mornings after! Especially when the compliments start pouring in…
