5 Secret Tips for Safe & Fast Weight Loss
According to the latest WHO report, more than 1.9 billion people are overweight or at the brink of obesity. Around 650 of them are obese. If we look at the past 25 years we can see that the worldwide obesity problem has tripled.
The problem is not simple. In many parts of the world, obesity is seen as a sign of prosperity and wealth. people there don’t see obesity as a disease. Due to this mindset obesity is fast becoming a chronic disease around the world. people in the west believe they can control obesity with the simple math of calories in vs calories burned.
But gaining weight and obesity is based on more complex and interrelated factors like genetics, hormones & society behavior, and eating habits.
If the problem would have been so simple like calories in and calories burned, We wouldn’t have the growing prevalence of obesity that we have today.
In the western world of constantly evolving science and daily new diets and practices to control weight, it is difficult to stay focused and know what works for the body and whatnot.
In the modern world, stress is one of the most underrated and significant causes of uncontrolled weight gain. so in order to re-establish the balance in the body is to reduce stress from our daily lifestyle.
I will be sharing 5 tricks based on ancient Ayurveda that can not only establish balance in the body but also rejuvenates the fat-burning metabolism, making you feel much healthier and lighter.
Drink Copper charged water in the morning.
The biggest hurdle in starting fat burning process is to mobilize fat cells into the fuel system of our body. The key is to keep your body active for the burning process. Copper can be obtained from various food sources. But the best way to get copper is through drinking it in water.
Just keep your drinking water in a copper jug, it is the safest way, because the amount of copper which leaches into the water is under safety limits. and provides enough copper to do its wonders.
According to Dr. Christopher Chang, a faculty at Berkeley’s lab chemical sciences, copper acts as a regulator of the fat-burning process.
Understand that our body has a natural energy-saving system, which turns on and off the fuel-burning system of our body. So just drink your daily water from a copper jug or bottle.
Ashwagandha leaf juice.
Want a 100% natural fat burner drink, Try ashwagandha leaf juice. Ashwagandha is well known for its miraculous benefits and its adaptogenic properties. Ashwagandha strengthens the immune system and prevents us from oxidative stress dues to imbalances in our daily lifestyle.
Ashwagandha has proven to speed up the process of fat mobilization, According to the ayurvedic texts, having ashwagandha leaf juice regularly helps in getting rid of deposited toxins from the lining of the intestines. it not only detoxifies the digestive system but also fires up the metabolism.
Try this concoction for the full benefit.
Mix 10 ml of aloe vera juice, 10 ml of amla juice, 1 teaspoon of ginger juice, and 20 ml of ashwagandha leaf juice. mix it with the warm water and drink sip by sip in the morning, make sure not to eat or drink anything for 1 hour after drinking this juice.
Note. According to the ayurvedic scriptures ashwagandha leaf juice is not suitable for daily consumption, so make sure to give 3 days gap after 7 days.
Include sprouts in breakfast.
Try brussels sprouts or green gram sprouts, as they are highly nutritious and full of fibers keeping you full for a longer period of time.
Sprouts are young germinated seeds of beans and legumes. Sprouts are one of the healthiest options to have in breakfast. not only they are very nutritious but also very low in calories.
Science has also proven that consuming sprouted seeds and beans controls the secretion of a hunger hormone called ghrelin.
Keep metabolism fired up with hot water.
Start practicing drinking hot water. the major problem is that our daily lifestyle and eating habits shut down or slow down our metabolism process. we need to keep it running to keep burning calories at our office desk also.
A study published in 2003 found that drinking hot water 30 minutes before a meal and 1 hour after a meal could boost weight loss by firing up the metabolism by 30%.
When we drink hot water, it alters our body temperature. To compensate for the warm temperature of the water, our body lowers the internal temperature and activates the metabolism. It activates the fats stored in the body and mobilizes them to molecules, making it easier for your digestive system to burn them.
so start practicing drinking hot water in between the meals.
Preload with Soup before dinner.
Many dieticians recommend all soup-based diets to lose weight, but the biggest downside of soups is that they are incomplete in nutrients, and could lead to other problems like lack of energy and nutrition.
According to the ayurvedic texts preloading with soups or raw vegetable salads before dinner leads to smaller portions on the dinner plate, resulting in around 20% of less calorie intake with each meal.
