Homemade Cinnamon Drink for Weight Loss
This easy homemade drink will cleanse your body, make you lose body fat, boost energy and help reverse disease. Its secret is in the ingredients.
Most of us are familiar with apple cider vinegar. It’s is full of enzymes and good bacteria. It contains acetic acid, which has been shown to lower blood pressure up to 6%. It can help eat up the starches if you do eat grains in your diet, and it’s also an effective tool for weight loss!
Lemon juice helps balance blood sugar and has an alkaline effect on your body helping to regulate PH. It also contains vitamin C.
Cinnamon is one of the best antioxidants on the planet. It’s the number one herb/spice for balancing blood sugar.
Cayenne pepper (1 dash) is optional, but beneficial. It has been shown to drop blood pressure and increase metabolism.
The honey will add a bit of taste and soothe your throat and vocal cords.
I recommend consuming this drink three times daily 20 minutes before meals for two weeks, then consuming it one time a day before breakfast or lunch.
One of the secret of this drink is that it alkalizes your body. Now you’re probably wondering how something that is so acid such as vinegar and lemon juice could actually be alkalizing. Well, you are right in thinking that outside of the body both these substances are highly acidic, but once consumed and within the body both become alkaline forming, meaning your body doesn’t have to produce any acid to digest it and utilize it. If you consume foods like bread or meat, your stomach has to the produce acid to digest those foods, which is why they are acid forming.
Easy Fat Burning Spiced Green Tea Smoothie
This green tea smoothie is perfect when you want to lose weight and a great companion for the previous Cinnamon Drink. Green tea is one of the top fat-burning foods, thanks to a metabolism-boosting compound known as EGCG. In one study, drinking four cups of green tea a day helped people shed more than six pounds in eight weeks!
Caffeine and a catechin (an antioxidant) are thought to stimulate your nervous system and increase fat burning. This rich smoothie is perfect if you get tired of sipping hot green tea. Flavored with cayenne spices, lemon, and honey, it provides all the nutritional benefits of green tea and will fill you up, to boot.
