Start Reducing Your Belly Fat by Drinking This Before Bedtime!
Trimming belly fat can prove a difficult task. Many slimming tricks and routines end unsuccessfully, leaving those who attempt them vastly disappointed. However, with a better idea of how the metabolism functions, anyone stands a better chance of making those extra inches disappear.
Metabolism refers to the chemical and physical processes continuously going on in living organisms. Unfortunately, these continual processes take place at a much slower rate in some than in others. Metabolic rate is affected by age, gender, and muscle mass. The metabolism works fastest during periods of spontaneous growth, such as during infancy or adolescence. Additionally, because men generally have a naturally higher ratio of muscle to fat, their metabolisms are often faster than those of women. One simple way to speed up the metabolism and eliminate belly fat regardless of age or sex is to consume a drink crafted from the following revitalizing ingredients.
This beverage is created with a blend of grapefruit, ginger, cinnamon and water.
Grapefruits help to flush out toxins the body has collected over time. During the detoxification process the body gets rid of its impurities, thus increasing the metabolism so that it may burn away fat at a much higher speed.For those who can’t consume grapefruit due to interference with their medications, it is advised to replace the grapefruit with other citrus fruits, such as lemon,lime or orange.
Ginger possesses thermogenic qualities, working to slightly increase body temperature as it is digested. These traits, along with each of the compounds present in ginger, prevent overeating and constipation. Various studies have also recognized ginger’s ability to speed up the body’s metabolic rate.
Cinnamon is rich in natural antioxidants which greatly reduce inflammatory processes and free radicals within the body. In addition, it works to stimulate one’s metabolism, and steadies and decreases the body mass index and blood sugar level.
Because the metabolism slows down significantly during rest, it is best to consume this drink just before bedtime. Increasing metabolic rate during sleep aids in the calorie burning process. One of the keys to weight loss includes replacing fat with lean muscle, which is more easily done when the metabolism is working swiftly.
Consuming this beverage on a regular basis will help to obtain an accelerated metabolism, provide the body with more energy, and ultimately cut down that undesired belly fat. What other tricks to reduce belly fat have worked for you?

Lemon-Herb Shortbread Cookies
These surprisingly sophisticated cookies are made with less butter than traditional shortbread, and almond flour replaces some of the refined white flour for extra nutrients. Get a head start by making the dough up to a month ahead and freezing it. Serve these cookies on their own, or as part of a pretty post-dinner spread with fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate.
Pear Tarte Tatin
A little indulgence goes a long way in this luscious tarte. Our version has less butter and sugar than usual and instead relies on the pears’ juices to create a mouthwatering caramel sauce. Don’t be tempted to use Bartlett pears in this recipe, but Bosc will do in a pinch. The unsweetened whipped cream is perfect counterpoint to the caramelized fruit.
