Sip detoxifying tea throughout the day
When you are up to lose your weight, you not only have to keep your digestive system intact and break down all accumulated fat of your body but also remove all the toxins from your body. When you get rid of the toxins, you allow all your body’s systems function to their full capacity, including metabolism. So, make this detox tea everyday in the morning and sip it hot or warm throughout the day.
You will need:
Cumin seeds- ½ tsp
Coriander seeds- ½ tsp
Fennel seeds- ½ tsp
Water- 4 cups
Thermos flask- 1
In the morning, boil 4 cups of water.
Add cumin, coriander and fennel seeds to the boiling water.
Allow it to boil for about five more minutes.
Then strain the tea and store in thermos flask.
Now have this tea in small amounts all through the day. It should be tolerably hot or at least warm when you have it.
Initially, you may take some time to adjust your taste buds to this tea and it may feel a little stronger to you. So, you may start your detox tea regime by adding ¼ tsp of each seed to your 4 cups of water and then about two weeks later, when you are used to the tea, make it half a teaspoon.
Cabbage can do wonders for you
The leafy green cabbage is a known good source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and many other nutrients. This very high-fiber vegetable has the fewest calories and least fat when compared with any other vegetable. When you include cabbage in your daily diet, you not only take advantage of all its beneficial components but also stop the sugar and carbs consumed by you in converting into fat. This wonder is done by the tartaric acid present in cabbage, it doesn’t allow sugar and carbohydrates in your body take the form of fat thus saving you from obesity. Either cook it, toss it in salad or have it raw but include cabbage in at least one of your meals daily.
