Belly fat is one of the most difficult areas to tone. There are many exercises and diets specifically targeting belly fat. The idea is to urge people to take action against this nuisance first thing in the morning. There are many studies that show the benefits of weight loss are best reaped right when you wake up. This may be true, but who has the time and energy to put this much effort into weight loss? Most people cannot function without a cup of coffee and this is true as their body becomes dependent on caffeine.
Early sleep is the best way to be able to put your efforts into maintaining healthy habits. There has been a recent awareness of drinking smoothies at breakfast, no not the sugary, creamy stuff, but the healthy kind with multiple benefits. There are many people opting for cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. It’s rudimentary that vegetables and fruits are the keys to good health and disease prevention. Why cold press?
This is the best way to maintain nutrients and get the most concentrated amount vitamins and minerals from vegetables and fruit juices. The right balance of ingredients is necessary when preparing a cold pressed juice. Incorporating both fruits, for their vitamins and sugars, and vegetables for their enzymes, is the best recipe. Not only will this give you an energy boost, but also help eliminate that pesky belly flab.
A cold pressed juice with the right ingredients will help your body produce enzymes that help you break down food steer your clear of bloating and fat that accumulates in and around your tummy. Freshly pressed juices can also help with indigestion. The enzymes in different types of leafy greens help with digestion and the natural sugar from fruit pulp will significantly help enhance your energy levels. We often hear doctors recommending we add more leafy green vegetables in our diets; this is the perfect opportunity to do just that. The delicious flavor of the fruits will mask the raw taste of vegetables. Here are few recommendations for your morning pressed juices:
- BABY SPINACH: Full grown leaves can also be added if baby spinach is not available. This will add the required amount of iron, manganese, potassium and folic acid in your diet.
- LEMON: The effect of lemons for weight loss is multiple. Known to clear toxins from the bloodstream, lemon is your best friend.
- KALE: Another great option for adding greens. Kale is full of minerals and vitamins that promote brain function and helps eradicate anemia.
- CARROT: The deliciously colored vegetable is not only low in calories and fats, but also high in vitamins and minerals.
There are plenty options of vegetables to use in cold pressed juicing. One of our favorite recipes include using half an apple, a few chunks of pineapple, a hand full of baby spinach, a squeeze of lemon juice, half a carrot and a little bit of ginger. This is the perfect recipe to start your morning full of energy and focus.
