Ginger is the best remedy for gaining slender forms
The most effective way to lose extra pounds is ginger – a root that has a sharp taste and a specific aroma. Since ancient times, Indian women have used this magical root to reduce body weight; ginger came to Europe and Russia relatively recently, but has already firmly entered the diet of many families due to its healing properties. In addition to accelerating metabolic processes in the body, leading to weight loss, the product has a lot of useful properties:
- Removes worms, not without reason, the Japanese add ginger to dishes prepared from raw fish;
- It has a general tonic effect on the body;
- Strengthens the immune system;
- Relieves fatigue;
- Lowers the level of bad cholesterol;
- Helps to cope with the symptoms of colds and viral diseases;
- Disinfects the oral cavity.
Ginger teas for weight loss
Ginger tea is not exactly tea, or rather not tea at all, but a drink with a pleasant aroma and a sharp specific taste that reduces weight, removes toxins, tones up and relieves fatigue.
- Ginger slimming tea is the easiest
To prepare the drink, you need to take a small piece of the root, approximately at the tip of a knife, for one serving. It is important to remember that it is very spicy in taste, so we use it sparingly. The piece taken is carefully peeled and rubbed on a fine grater, you can directly into a tea cup, pour boiling water and leave for a few minutes. Tea can be drunk both cold and hot.
- Tea with honey and lemon
We repeat all the same steps, that is, we clean, rub and pour boiling water, add honey and lemon to the resulting drink, components that reduce spiciness and make the taste more saturated and pleasant, especially for those who do not like spicy.
- Tea with garlic
This recipe is intended for people with the first degree of obesity. Garlic, like ginger, speeds up metabolic processes, allowing you to quickly lose extra pounds.
One clove of garlic and a small piece of ginger are enough per liter of drink, it is important to remember the pungency of these products and use them very sparingly. Finely chop the garlic, peel and grate the root, pour boiling water over it. You need to be prepared for the fact that the drink has a very strange, specific taste, which is not easy to get used to, but which you can’t do for the sake of a slender figure.
One liter of tea per day is enough for effective weight loss.
- Ginger tea with mint and cardamom
A drink with mint and cardamom is not only healthy, but unlike garlic tea, it is also delicious. To prepare, we wash and finely chop the mint greens, which we then mix with chopped ginger, add cardamom, mix and pour boiling water. Healing tea should be infused for at least an hour, drunk chilled, you can add ice and lemon juice.
- Tea with ginger, elderberry and yarrow
This is a very tasty drink that allows not only to reduce weight, but also relieves intestinal spasms. Add the color of black elderberry and dried yarrow to the chopped ginger, pour boiling water over it, leave to infuse for thirty minutes. Tea is drunk in small sips throughout the day.
Remove excess weight not only teas with ginger, but also salads.
- Salad of ginger and root vegetables
Great for a fasting day, ginger is added as a spice to this dish. Main ingredients: ginger root, lemon, celery (root), carrot, beet. We clean all root crops and ginger from the skin. We rub the ginger root and carrots, chop the pre-boiled beets, chop the celery, too, very finely. Mix vegetables with lemon juice and olive oil.
- Salad with nuts
Another useful component has been added to the salad – nuts, which allow you not to lose strength during the struggle for a beautiful figure. The main components of the dish: nuts (hazelnuts, cashews, walnuts); carrot; ginger root; celery; chilli; soy sauce; Sesame oil; lemon juice.
At the first stage, thinly slice or rub one carrot, rub the ginger and finely chop the celery, then heat the oil, into which we throw the healing root and a little dried chili pepper, then add the nuts. When the nuts are lightly fried, you can pour in the soy sauce and add the carrots. The salad should be stewed for several minutes, after which the celery is placed. The dish is very tasty after cooling completely, after an hour or two.
- Pickled ginger in the fight for a slim figure
For weight loss, you can also use pickled ginger. Making this dish is a little more difficult than a salad, but the taste is amazing, the effect is also not long in coming.
For pickling we take: ginger; rice vinegar; dry wine; sugar; vodka. Cut a whole ginger root into slices and blanch in boiling water for about one minute. Separately, mix wine, vodka and sugar (two tablespoons), boil the composition over low heat until the sugar dissolves, pour in the vinegar. Fill the pieces of ginger tightly packed in a jar with marinade, the root will be ready in a few days, it can be stored for no more than three months.
