– 1 pinch of cinnamon powder
Eating cinnamon has been found to significantly lower fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol. It may also delay stomach emptying after a meal, keeping you full longer. Researchers have additionally determined that treating fat cells with cinnamaldehyde, the element in cinnamon that imparts its flavor, improves the rate of fat burning.
– Half a teaspoon of ginger powder
Ginger gives you energy to fuel a good workout, as pep much as the caffeine in your morning coffee would. It also reduces the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which is linked to excess belly fat. Ginger can also help reduce appetite by regulating blood sugar and serum cholesterol.
