Next, steep the green tea bag for 3 minutes in the ginger tea. Discard the teabag and drink while warm. Sweeten if desired with 1 teaspoon honey and squeeze half a lemon into the tea for additional benefits .

Why ginger ?

Known primarily as an aid to digestion and a treatment for inflammation, ginger is a beneficial addition to a weight-loss program aimed at reducing belly fat and obtaining a flat tummy. Belly fat accumulates for various reasons, including overeating, age-related hormone reduction, lack of exercise and stress. Consumption of ginger, addresses each of these problems.

Lemons are not only rich in vitamins, but also function in digestive and liver cleansing

Green tea is a treasure trove of nutrients that help brain activity and lower cancer risk. Plus, green tea reduces the absorption of fat from the foods that we eat. Combine it with the nutrients and detoxifying benefits of ginger and you’ve got a delicious, healthy, and fat-reducing drink all-in-one.

Please note -Taking this tea without reducing calories or exercising won’t reduce belly fat.Healthy eating and regular exercise are an essential part of working towards a fit and toned body.
