The holidays are a little less than a month away, which means that it’s that time of year again. What time of year, you ask? It’s that time of year when people typically gain more weight than they do the rest of the year. The majority of Americans put on about 80% of their weight during the holidays, which is why you see a bunch of people in the gym in January. While healthy New Year’s resolutions are nice thoughts, we find it better to implement small changes during the holidays that can help you keep the weight off.

 

The reality is that there are foods at parties, family dinners, office gatherings, or other events during the holidays that are very fattening. Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pies, cakes, cranberry sauce, and other rich dishes are spread out over these tables. Plus, you have pumpkin-spiced everything and other holiday-inspired treats advertised in your face all day every day. This is not conducive if you are trying to stay healthy.

 

There are ways that you can keep those pounds off this holiday season. Implement the following tips during the holidays to help yourself remain healthy! One last thing…it’s important that you don’t get upset with yourself if you happen to cheat or fall off track. Don’t beat yourself up. Just get back on the horse.

 

Tip #1: Pregame

People who go out for a night of drinking will pre-drink at their houses, so they don’t have to buy a lot of alcohol later. You can do this with food! Before going to a holiday party, pregame with a large salad or steamed vegetables. You could also snack on some carrot sticks and hummus. This will help you not overeat at the party!

 

Tip #2: Eat From The Dessert Plate

Dessert plates are typically smaller than plates for the meal. We recommend using the dessert plate for your meal so that you get smaller portions. Remember, the perfect portion size is your two fists put together, so don’t go back and forth 10 times with that dessert plate. And make sure that at least half of the plate consists of vegetables every time.

 

Tip #3: Nibble On Apples When Cooking

Since holiday meals are rich and inviting, you are likely to take some extra “tastes” when preparing the meal. You may even end up licking frosting or batter for a while. These are fat traps. The best thing to do is slice an apple before making the meal and eat a slice when you feel like taking a bite of what you’re making. The fiber helps you feel full and nibble less.

 

Tip #4: Start Your Days Off Healthy

A lot of places sell pumpkin spice this, and cinnamon crunch that during the holidays. Say no to treats and pastries in the morning by starting your days off with fruit and vegetable smoothies. If you want something warm, make a bowl of steel cut oats with blueberries, chia seeds, and almond butter. You can also try some chia pudding!

 

Tip #5: Limit Liquid Calories

A lot of people have the tendency to drink their calories during the holidays. Eggnog, pumpkin lattes, hot chocolate, Irish coffees, and more are unnecessary and empty calories. Also, drinking lowers your resistance to temptations. A glass of red wine won’t be detrimental, but try to drink a full glass of water before a meal or drink sparkling water for a calorie-free beverage.

An Easy At-Home Exercise Routine To Do During The Holidays https://www.dherbs.com/articles/an-easy-at-home-exercise-routine-to-do-during-the-holidays/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/an-easy-at-home-exercise-routine-to-do-during-the-holidays/#comments Wed, 28 Nov 2018 11:30:17 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=60997 The holidays are a lovely but stressful time. Start your mornings off right with this 6-minute workout that will tone your muscle groups.

It can be difficult to make time for exercise during the holiday season. Whether you are spending your time gift shopping, taking the kids to holiday pageant practices, or getting stuff done for work before the year’s over, there never seems to be enough time in the day. Even though your days can be busy, we believe that there is always a little slice of the day that can be dedicated to exercise. This is a short workout that you can do to kick your mornings into gear.

 

The coolest part about this workout is that it only takes 6 minutes. After you wake up and have your wits about you, start this routine. Do this workout before you eat breakfast because it boosts your endorphins and burns 20% more body fat than walking around the neighborhood, for instance. This is because it is a high-intensity workout, which involves strength training, balance, and cardiovascular exercises. The workout consists of squats, push-ups, planks, and crunches, and you’re going to cycle through this routine two times with minimal to no rest between sets. After the completion of one cycle, you can rest for one to two minutes.

 

This workout aims to target the entire body so that you engage all your muscle groups. It’s a good idea to do a few stretches or foam roll for a few minutes prior to the workout.

 

Exercise #1: 15 Squats

Standing with your feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart, bend your knees and keep your back straight. Try not to let your knees go past your toes. You want to sit back until your thighs parallel the floor. Then push up, engaging your gluteus muscles, and drive through your heels to return to the starting position. This exercise increases strength, balance, works your lower body, and tones your legs.

 

Exercise #2: 15 Push-Ups

Many people do push-ups without the correct form. Get on all fours and place your hands on the floor directly underneath your shoulders. Extend your feet back, lower yourself keeping your elbows next to your sides until your chest nearly touches the floor, and then push up using your pectoral muscles. You’ll strengthen your core, chest, and arms. If you need to place your knees on the ground or stand up and push-up from the edge of your desk, it’s completely ok.

 

Exercise #3: Plank for 30 Seconds

You don’t have to move from the push-up position. Lower yourself onto your elbows and keep your back straight. The only body parts that should touch the ground are your two forearms, hands, and toes. Engage your core muscles and hold the position for 30 seconds.

 

Exercise: #4: 12 Bicycle Crunches

Lie down on your back, extend your legs all the way out, and place your hands behind your ears. Lift one knee towards your chest and crunch forward to touch it with the opposite elbow. This creates a twist that tones your entire core. Repeat for each side until you are finished.

 

Now repeat the whole routine and you’ll be done in about 6 minutes. This will help you stay tone and give you an energy boost to start your day.

The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Detox Menu https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-perfect-post-thanksgiving-detox-menu/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-perfect-post-thanksgiving-detox-menu/#comments Sat, 24 Nov 2018 11:00:26 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73847 If you are wearing sweatpants and lounging on the couch because you ate too much, you need this detox menu to help you get back on track.

The average American adult typically consumes about 4,000-4,500 calories on Thanksgiving. The suggested total calorie consumption per day for the average person is about 2,000. Needless to say, almost everyone overeats on Thanksgiving. This means that you are probably still full today and you may be feeling sluggish, bloated, tired, and wearing pants with an elastic waistband.

 

One of the worst things you can do to yourself is to continue eating Thanksgiving leftovers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pie for breakfast, stuffing, turkey, and mashed potatoes for lunch, and more turkey, mac and cheese, and green bean casserole for dinner is not the way to go. If you want to gain weight and give your digestive system a hard time, that is definitely the way to go, but we don’t advise that.

 

To help you boost your metabolism, get you back on track, and detox your body from your giant Thanksgiving meal, here is a two-day detox menu.

 

Note: It’s imperative to drink at least half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day after Thanksgiving. If you weigh 150lbs, you should drink 75oz of water each day. You should actually do this all the time to stay properly hydrated, but more water after Thanksgiving helps to flush toxins from your system.

 

Day 1:

Morning Beverage: Before you eat anything, it is best to drink 8-10 ounces of filtered water with the juice of half a lemon in it. This helps begin the detoxification process and supplies you with vitamin C.

 

Breakfast:

pumpkin-pie-smoothie

Keep the Thanksgiving theme going by indulging in this creamy pumpkin pie smoothie that tastes so good it could be a milkshake! But guess what? It’s actually really healthy!

Click here to make the recipe.

 

Snack: Try eating an apple with some raw almond butter as a snack.

 

Lunch:

kale-quinoa-salad

The coolest part about this salad is that you can prep it, dress it, and pack it into containers to have some healthy lunches for the week. You’ll get a lot of healthy protein from the kale and the quinoa helps to fill you up.

Click here to make the recipe.

 

Afternoon Snack: Celery sticks or carrot sticks and hummus is a great way to go. Or you can just eat a handful of raw walnuts/pecans/almonds/cashews.

 

Dinner:

roasted-red-pepper-zoodles

We are going to make zucchini noodle pasta with a roasted garlic & red pepper sauce. If you have secret sauce ingredients or family recipe ingredients that you’d like to add to this recipe, go ahead and season away!

Click here to make the recipe.

 

Day 2:

Morning Beverage: Before you eat anything, it is best to drink 8-10 ounces of filtered water with the juice of half a lemon in it. This continues the detoxification process and supplies you with vitamin C.

 

Breakfast:

chia-pumpkin-pudding

To enjoy a healthier pumpkin treat for breakfast, eat this pumpkin chia pudding. It is way more nutritious than eating leftover pumpkin pie.

Click here to make the recipe.

 

Snack: A green smoothie would be a great snack for day 2. Blend 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of strawberries, ½ cup of blueberries, 1 banana, and 1 cup of water together for a delicious smoothie.

 

Lunch:

roated-eggplant-sandwich

The eggplant may not be on the top of everyone’s grocery list, but this purple vegetable is one of the most versatile ingredients you’ll ever cook with.

Click here to make the recipe.

 

Afternoon Snack: Celery sticks or carrot sticks and hummus is a great way to go. Or you can just eat a handful of walnuts/pecans/almonds/cashews.

 

Dinner:

quinoa-buddha-bowl
This is an amazing bowl filled with roasted chickpeas, colorful vegetables, and it is all topped with a tahini dressing. This is bowl flavorful, vegan, dairy-free, and a great way to get a ton of nutrients in one bowl.

Easy Ways To Avoid Gaining Weight At Thanksgiving https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-easy-ways-to-avoid-gaining-weight-at-thanksgiving/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-easy-ways-to-avoid-gaining-weight-at-thanksgiving/#comments Tue, 20 Nov 2018 11:30:54 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73792 How do you stop yourself from gaining weight on Thanksgiving? Well, we have the answers and anyone can do them. Check them out!

People eat on Thanksgiving; it’s just what they do. Some people only eat until they are slightly full, while others eat until they can’t move. Overeating on Thanksgiving can be attributed to two causes: 1) People use the holidays as an excuse to eat more than they ever do the rest of the year 2) People stress eat because dealing with family and making sure everything goes according to plan can be a lot to handle.

 

What a lot of people don’t realize is that Thanksgiving is just the tip of the iceberg. The Thanksgiving meal propels you into poor eating habits up until the New year. Then a lot of people rely on New Year’s resolutions to lose the weight that they put on during the holidays. The reality is that most people don’t fulfill their New Year’s resolutions and the weight stays with them. The cycle repeats the next year.

 

This year, let’s try to take a few actions during Thanksgiving to help you avoid holiday weight gain.

 

Walk Around And Talk To People:

Thanksgiving is a celebration of being together with people you care about. You may only see some of these people once or twice a year, so make the most of it. Rather than stuffing your face every waking second of dinner, walk around and catch up with family. Keeping yourself occupied will distract you from eating too much.

 

Plan A Post-Meal Walk:

If you have a dog, it makes it that much easier to go for a short walk after Thanksgiving. After you finish eating, make an announcement about your walk. Some of your friends or family will be inclined to join you. A quick 20-minute walk will help to improve the digestive process and speed up your metabolism.

 

Help With The Clean Up:

If you sit around while others are cleaning up, you will most likely go for another round of food or help yourself to more dessert. You may even just walk around and pick at random dishes, which is not conducive to your health. Helping with the cleanup process is not only a nice thing to do, it is also a great way to stop eating and burn calories. Scrubbing dishes is going to be the new workout, just watch.

 

Stop Eating When You Are Full:

This is an obvious tip, but it is necessary. The meal is not over when you hate yourself. The meal is over when you feel full. Think of Thanksgiving as any other day. The more you eat, the more you set yourself back. Don’t overdo it!

 

Plan A Workout Date The Next Morning:

We know that most people love to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but you should schedule a fitness date. Not only will working out help you feel less bloated, but it will also help to boost your energy levels. Making plans with a family member or friend is a great way to keep you committed to the plan. You don’t have to go to a gym. A walking date, at-home workout, or bike ride can be beneficial for your health.

Your Guide To Choosing Healthy Fats https://www.dherbs.com/articles/your-guide-to-choosing-healthy-fats/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/your-guide-to-choosing-healthy-fats/#comments Sun, 18 Nov 2018 11:30:36 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=87959 Are you confused about the difference between good and bad fats? We are here to show you the healthy fats you need in your diet.

The ketogenic diet has swept the nation and people have come to realize the importance of fats. We aren’t referring to just any fats because the monounsaturated fats in an avocado, for example, are vastly different from the trans fats in hydrogenated oils. Fat is a necessary nutrient that can offer different health benefits, provided you choose the right ones.

 

The Two Main Fat Categories:

While there are a lot of different fats, they can be divided into two main categories: unsaturated fats (the good ones) and saturated fats (the unhealthy ones). Unsaturated fats should be the primary fats you consume because they are derived from plants and work to improve heart health. Saturated fats, on the other hand, are typically found in animal products and can increase your risk of high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and heart attack.

 

When it comes to unsaturated fats, there are monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Both of these fats can be found in nuts, seeds, avocados, and certain oils. When it comes to polyunsaturated fats, it is integral to balance out the consumption of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Most people consume an excess amount of omega-6s (fried foods, snack foods, and baked goods), which can lead to chronic inflammation. You cannot avoid omega-3s (nuts, seeds, leafy greens, and wild caught fish), even though most people do avoid these foods.

 

Be Diligent With Your Fat Choices:

Remember that fats do add calories to your diet. This is important to remember if you are trying to lose weight by restricting your caloric intake. Keep in mind that most oils have about 120 calories per tablespoon. Even if you are consuming extra virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, and avocado oil, you can pile on the calories if you drown all your meals in them.

 

Polyunsaturated & Monounsaturated Fats:

Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats have been known to help boost memory, improve heart health, lower LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol), and raise HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol). As we mentioned before, omega-3s and omega-6s are considered polyunsaturated fats. Be sure to focus on walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, olive oil, tahini, macadamia nut oil, avocados, hemp seeds, Brussels sprouts, and more. Additionally, help control blood clotting, lower triglycerides, and fight inflammation by balancing your omega-3 and omega-6 consumption.

 

Trans Fats:

The goal is to limit or eliminate these fats from your diet. They are found in a lot of processed foods and contain a lot of hydrogen, so that they remain solid at room temperature. Trans fats also increase LDL cholesterol and lower HDL cholesterol. Not to mention, food manufactures can hide trans fats in foods as long as it contains half a gram or less per serving. Check out our article about how to successfully read nutrition labels so you can avoid trans fats.

 

Saturated Fats:

Generally speaking, you don’t want a lot of these in your diet, especially if they come from processed foods, frozen foods, or animal products. They can raise cholesterol levels and increase your risk of type 2 diabetes. If you are going to consume saturated fat, your best food choice is unfiltered, virgin coconut oil. While it contains saturated fat, it also is rich in medium-chain triglycerides that can help with weight loss and boost the metabolism.

 

We hope you choose the right fats from here on out. If you have any questions or comments about which fat sources to consume, please comment below.

Thanksgiving is about spending quality time with family and friends, but we all know that it’s really about the food. Most people look forward to gorging on the delectable spread, watching football, and taking the inevitable post-meal nap. Some people go into the Thanksgiving meal with zero dietary restrictions and disregard any health goals. Others have the intention of being healthy and not overeating, but a primal hunger overcomes them and any health plans go out the window. We are here to tell you that Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be a day when you lose control.

 

Food For Thought: The average American consumes about 3,000-5,000 calories during the Thanksgiving meal. That doesn’t even account for any other calories consumed throughout the day.

 

Most people gain an average of one pound on Thanksgiving. This weight gain has a snowball effect throughout the rest of the holiday season, given that sweets, rich foods, and never-ending food advertisements are attacking you from all angles. The holidays should be enjoyed, but you don’t want to go off the rails and lose all self-control. To help you stay a little healthier this Thanksgiving, follow the tips below.

 

Go Outside:

While you should enjoy your day off, it is important to avoid laziness, especially in the beginning of the day. Use the free time to take a walk or jog around the neighborhood. If you have a lot of family together, head to a local park, participate in a Turkey Trot, play a game of flag football, or go on a group bike ride. If you don’t have time to go outside, try a high-intensity home circuit workout for about 20 minutes. Exercising lowers the amount of ghrelin, which stimulates appetite, and increases the amount of peptide YY, which suppresses appetite. No laziness!

 

Eat Before You Eat:

Make sure you eat breakfast to avoid binge eating at dinner. Start your day with a fruit and vegetable smoothie or a cup of old-fashioned oatmeal and sliced bananas. It is recommended to eat a salad about an hour before you sit down for the main meal. This can prevent overeating and you will have already consumed a wide variety of essential nutrients.

 

Hydrate Before You Eat:

Did you know that people commonly mistake thirst for hunger? When you don’t drink water, your body feels the need to go nuts on calories, thus the overeating problem at Thanksgiving. Hydration is the answer, and you should try to drink about 16 ounces of filtered water before the meal.

 

Pick Smarter Options & Skip Seconds:

Eating the right amount of food is difficult when you pile anything and everything on your plate. Choosing healthier options and being conscious of how much you are eating is half the battle. Don’t load up on dinner rolls and excess carbs. Try to focus on as many green vegetables as you can and don’t go back for seconds. Take small portions of what you want and leave it at that. Don’t refill your plate immediately after you finish eating your first plate. Sit for 20 minutes (standard time it takes to feel full) and you’ll see that you don’t need another plate.

 

Don’t Beat Yourself Up:

Let’s say you abandon every health measure you set in place when you gazed upon the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and all the desserts. There’s no reason to give yourself the guilt trip. What’s done is done and you can’t take back what you did, but you should be proud that you are health conscious enough to realize your eating behaviors. Lay the groundwork for a healthier holiday season and start planning your New Year’s health goals. Maybe you want to take part in the Dherbs 180 Challenge???

Eat these 8 foods and you could lose even more weight and feel healthier.

Believe it or not, there are foods that help cleanse the body. This is why all of our cleanses call for a raw foods diet. The herbs in the various cleanses have an easier time cleansing your organs and systems when you are eating fresh fruits, vegetables, and raw nuts and seeds. The herbs aren’t as effective if you are eating processed foods, meat, meat products, refined sugars, dairy products, cooked foods, eggs, grains, or junk foods.

 

Eat the foods in this article to help you along with your cleansing experience. Who knows? You might even experience more weight loss.

 

Blueberries:

Blueberries are full of antioxidants! When you eat them, they act like antibiotics, blocking bacteria in the urinary tract. This helps to keep your kidneys healthy and prevent urinary infections.

 

Avocados:

We have a warning about avocados: they are delicious. Seriously, though, don’t go crazy eating them because, while they are healthy fats, too many of them may make it harder to shed pounds. Avocados help to lower cholesterol and block toxins that can destroy your arteries.

 

Grapefruit:

Grapefruit is very beneficial for naturally detoxing your liver. It is also loaded with vitamin C and can help you naturally flush fat from you body. Make a belly fat eliminator drink with grapefruit by clicking here.

 

Cucumber:

Cucumbers can actually help to keep you hydrated. They are about 97% water, which makes them a great hydrating snack. Their water content is why spas use them on your eyes. They can help hydrate your skin, which is beneficial for getting rid of dark circles.

 

Lemons:

If your goal is to create a neutral pH balance in the body, lemons are a must. This may seem counterintuitive because they contain citric acid, but lemons act as an alkaline food when ingested. They also help to flush toxins from your body, while nourishing your cells in the process. Adding fresh lemon to your water is a great option!

 

Pineapple:

This tropical fruit is one of the best things to eat to help out your digestive system. It contains a digestive enzyme, bromelain, which helps you cleanse your colon and naturally break down food in the digestive tract.

 

Figs:

Figs don’t get a lot of attention because a lot of people aren’t a fan of the texture. They are actually very sweet and have a lot of cleansing properties. Figs work to inhibit toxic urine development, while helping to cleanse the kidneys and your bladder.

 

Pomegranates:

If you want to boost your immune system, get some pomegranates in your life. They are incredibly rich in antioxidants and help the body naturally fight disease.

 

Goji Berries:

While a lot of people believe that oranges are the best vitamin C sources, goji berries actually contain more vitamin C than oranges. They also have more beta-carotene than carrots, and beta-carotene helps to improve your liver function.

Women know that there are hundreds upon hundreds of products that claim to effectively get rid of fat. There are also products that supposedly benefit your skin and make you look younger. Unfortunately, there isn’t a magic solution to help you lose weight overnight, but there is one drink that can help speed up the process.

 

Ladies, it’s time that you incorporate flaxseed tea into your daily routine. Flaxseeds have been consumed for over 6,000 years and they can help improve digestion, clear up your skin, reduce sugar cravings, lower cholesterol, balance hormones, and, most importantly, support healthy weight loss. Flaxseeds are probably one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet.

 

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 liter of water
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseeds

 

Preparation:

  • Boil the water with the flaxseeds and let it boil for 5 minutes before removing from the heat. Let the mixture cool over night.
  • It is best to prepare this in the evening so that it is ready the next day. Strain the mixture the next morning and take it to go with you.

 

Drinking the Tea:

Believe it or not, there are instructions for drinking this tea. Drink about a half-cup of the tea four times a day. It is very important to drink this tea 30 minutes before each meal. Repeat this every day for ten days straight. Then stop drinking the tea for ten days. If you haven’t reached your desired results, you can continue repeating the ten days off and ten days on routine until you achieve your desired results.

When most people are looking to improve their health, they often latch on to the latest health or fitness trends without doing a lot of research. Some people look at getting calorie counting apps, shopping at health food stores, or joining a local crossfit or boot camp class. We aren’t discounting diet and exercise (because they are important!), but one of the best ways to quickly improve your health is by learning how to read nutrition labels.

 

Every packaged food product in the United States has to have a nutrition label. Knowing how to read the information on these labels could save your life, and ignoring this information could increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. These labels don’t contain complex scientific information or difficult mathematical equations. They are not that scary, and we are going to teach you how to decipher them in order to become a healthier person.

 

Serving Size:

This information is always found at the top of the nutrition label. Be mindful of the serving size and the amount of servings per package. For instance, a bag of chips may have a serving size of 14 chips, but there are four servings in the package. Eating the whole package, then, increases your intake of every other item on the label.

 

Nutritional Facts:

Everything that is inside the black lines (calories, sugars, protein, sodium, fats, etc.) is representative of one serving. That is the most important thing to understand! If one serving has 200 calories, but there are 2.5 servings in the container, eating the whole container means that you consume 500 calories. It’s a clever marketing trick because people commonly overlook that the ingredients represent one serving.

 

The Fats:

There are several numbers and names that you must pay attention to on nutrition labels. A product that says it is 99% fat free should theoretically contain 1% fat. This is most often representative of the weight of the product. Fats are listed multiple ways, with multiple values, in one area on the label. This is confusing! Dressings, condiments, soups, or canned foods can all be diluted with water, which increases the weight but not the fat. Companies can sell a product that is 90% fat by diluting it, seasoning it, and marketing it as 98% fat free.

This isn’t to say that all fats are bad for you. Nuts and seeds, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, and other plant-based foods contain beneficial, heart-healthy fats. On nutrition labels, you have to look out for and avoid trans fats and saturated fats, both of which can contribute to heart disease.

 

Cholesterol & Sodium:

The goal should be to limit your consumption of both of these ingredients. Excessively consuming both of these can lead to high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Again, pay attention to the serving size and amount of servings per container, because you might be consuming 500 milligrams of sodium, when you think you are only consuming 150 milligrams.

 

Carbohydrates:

Carbohydrates are the breads, grains, fibers, and sugars in foods. Dietary fiber is integral for a healthy digestive system and can keep you satiated between meals. You have to watch out for sugars because, like trans fats, they have been linked to a host of health problems. The types of carbohydrates should also be of major concern. Foods like breads, pastas, or chips are often low in fiber and high in carbohydrates. While these foods may not contain a lot of sugars, the carbohydrates will operate similarly in your bloodstream. They are simple carbs. You want to focus on complex carbs from foods like broccoli, pears, carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, quinoa, buckwheat, whole oats, and apples.

 

Vitamins & Minerals:

Truth be told, you shouldn’t pay any attention to the vitamins in a packaged food product. These numbers are notoriously low and you should focus on fresh fruits and vegetables to obtain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.

 

The Percentages:

On the right side of the nutrition label, you will notice different percentage values that correlate to the fats, sodium, sugars, and protein. The percentages are based on a 2,000-calorie per day diet. Keep in mind that if there are 2.5 servings in a certain food and one serving satisfies 20% of your daily sodium intake, you could be at 50% by just eating one snack.

 

Now you know how to read nutrition labels! There’s no need to be afraid, and there’s no reason to think something is healthy when you can clearly read that it isn’t. Lastly, don’t forget to read the actual ingredients. Remember that the ingredients are listed in order of the amount. If high fructose corn syrup is first on the list, you can bank on that food product being high in calories with minimal nutritional value, if any. Additionally, the longer the ingredient list, the worse the food is for you. While this information is beneficial for your health, the best way to remain healthy is to focus on foods that don’t have nutrition labels. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains can help you remain on the healthy path.

Sometimes it can seem like getting rid of belly fat is damn near impossible. That is why we are so excited about this flat tummy tea! The ingredients in this tea have been proven to combat belly fat and provide the body with other benefits like decreased cancer risk, better metabolism, and overall body detoxification.

 

The body has the ability to naturally cleanse itself, but this can be difficult in the world we live in. Free radical damage, environmental pollution, alcohol, daily stress, and poor eating habits make it hard for the body to naturally cleanse itself. This can lead to obesity, heart disease, various cancers, and other digestive diseases. A lot of people have problems with belly fat because they have poorly functioning digestive systems, which can cause 10-20 pounds of waste to build up in the digestive tract.

 

Like the many detox waters that help you feel full and combat the stressors of everyday life, this flat tummy tea helps get rid of cravings. Additionally, drinking this tea can help you naturally flush toxins from your body and reduce overall inflammation. Decreased inflammation can lead to less stomach distress, a calmer body, and less bloating.

 

We are tired of keeping this recipe from you so look at the ingredients and instructions below to combat that belly fat!

 

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces of water
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated turmeric
  • Juice from 1 lemon

 

Instructions:

  • Start boiling the water and add the grated turmeric and ginger to a tea strainer. Place the tea strainer in a mug.
  • Once the water finishes boiling, pour it into the mug and let the tea steep for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the tea strainer and squeeze the lemon into the mug and stir. You can add stevia to naturally sweeten the tea. You can save the tea strainer for one more use later.
  • It is best to drink this tea about 30 minutes before each meal.
