Overweight has become a major problem for many people from an early age. Unfortunately junk food has become commonplace in many cultures and tends to promote the accumulation of fat. It attracts more and more because it seems in line with the world today.
Indeed, today's society makes us have a frantic pace, but this way of life is adopted at the expense of a diet. The best way to lose weight and burn fat is to consume foods high in fiber, fruits, vegetables and supplement with practicing a sport.
It is essential to learn to have better eating habits and avoid snacking. Many fruits and vegetables are effective in losing weight thanks to their nutrient intake and low calorie content. The tomato, in particular, mixed with garlic and lemon juice, can be effective in the context of a slimming cure.
Here is the recipe for a drink to reduce fat accumulation:
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 tomatoes
- 6 tablespoons lemon juice
- ¼ liter of water
- 6 ice cubes
Put the garlic cloves and tomatoes in a blender and washed and diced and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix until a homogeneous and liquid consistency is obtained.
Consume this drink thirty minutes before breakfast three times a week. To maximize its effect, it must be drunk as part of a diet rich in cereals, fruits, vegetables and green tea.
Do not forget to reduce your sugar intake and exercise regularly.
The Benefits of Ingredients
The tomato acts as an effective fat burn thanks to its antioxidant properties. Hypocaloric, it is packed with essential nutrients and vitamins. Notably vitamin C which helps to reduce the formation of cellulite and the accumulation of fat in the hips and thighs by lowering the level of cortisol.
Cortisol is a hormone that regulates carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, heavily stimulated in times of stress. This is why stress promotes weight gain.
The tomato also contains carotenoids, including lycopene (a natural pigment with antioxidant properties that is effective in fighting free radicals), which reduces the body's lipid content and ensures better regulation of the fat content.
Tomato has many benefits: it helps eliminate fat, preventing chronic diseases and inflammation, and lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.
The consumption of garlic as part of a balanced diet is effective because it contains antioxidants that allow you to lose weight and burn fat.
According to a study in Israel, researchers collected two groups of rats and gave them the same amount of food, with one difference: group 1 consumed allicin (a potent antibiotic in garlic), unlike the group 2 who did not. At the end of the experiment, the rats given allicin did not gain weight, unlike the other group that took it.
The reason that garlic avoids gaining weight is that it acts as an appetite suppressant that sends signals of satiety as soon as it is ingested. In addition, it stimulates the nervous system and releases adrenaline, which tends to increase metabolism. That says high metabolism says calories burned faster.
The fact that the garlic is crushed in this recipe makes it possible to release more allicin.
Be careful, however, because regularly used, garlic can be toxic to the liver and can cause indigestion and diarrhea. It is also not recommended for people who have undergone surgery because of their anticoagulant properties as well as those suffering from porphyria: blood disease which makes photosensitive.
The citric acid contained in the lemon interacts with digestive enzymes and reduces the absorption of ingested food. Less sugars will be transformed into fat if not used by the body.
Lemon juice promotes digestion, eliminates bloating and accelerates transit. Its high fiber content increases the sensation of satiety and thus reduces cravings.
This citrus can also absorb calcium and store it in fat cells (main energy reservoir); This process is very effective in weight loss because calcium helps burn fat.
If you suffer from kidney or biliary disorders and stomach ulcers, you should not consume lemon juice.
