There are many methods to lose weight, and herbal teas are one of the best options due to the varied and effective properties that they give us to look and feel great.
Although it is said that no remedy is quite miraculous, we can say that the more we want something to happen in our life; we are inciting and inviting it to make this happen. If we want to lose weight, herbs can be the best ally of our will and help us quickly and easily to make our bodies healthy, slim and very attractive.
The following are the most appropriate tea for weight loss. Very few have contraindications, but it is good that you check very well which herbs you will choose to lose weight and check if it has no detrimental effects.
Before you begin, consider that:
- There is no need to use a single herb while you lose weight. You can change from time to time, for example, if you choose green tea, you can use it for a week and then switch to horehound or another which has properties that may be more appropriate for you. The important thing is to keep a certain routine and drink twenty minutes after eating.
- Use the herbs with confidence because if you follow the instructions, you won’t have any problems.
- If you want to accentuate or accelerate results, combine teas with a diet avoiding sugar, white flour, refined, junk and fried food. Why is it important to stop eating these foods in the diet? Because, if you take the tea and keep eating this food, the properties will focus on eliminating what you eat and won’t remove the excess toxins and stored fat in your body.
- Does tea serve without dieting? Absolutely, if you take the tea and do not diet, you will be burning and purifying your body of harmful substances and stored fat, but the process is much slower and perhaps you will despair because you don’t seem to lose weight. The tea will always act, but if the body is full of toxins, undoubtedly it will need some help with the diet.
- One of the great secrets of teas for weight loss is that you take them before breakfast and warm, some with the juice of a squeezed lemon to enhance its cleansing effect, unsweetened. You need to take fasting, because during the night, the body is responsible for collecting and accumulating toxins in the gut. If you take the tea while fasting, it helps us to dispose these toxins and harmful fats, and prevents re-absorption.
- If after drinking tea you do a routine of high-impact exercise, like 10 or 15 minutes, you will help properties maximize tea and to burn fat faster.
- Generally, take two or three cups of tea a day. Never exaggerate; you should try to drink at least 2 liters of water a day plus tea cups, so that helps remove hard fat in your body.
