Trimming belly fat can prove a difficult task. Many slimming tricks and routines end unsuccessfully, leaving those who attempt them vastly disappointed. However, with a better idea of how the metabolism functions, anyone stands a better chance of making those extra inches disappear.
Metabolism is described by the Webster dictionary as “the chemical and physical processes continuously going on in living organisms.” Unfortunately, these continual processes take place at a much slower rate in some than in others. Metabolic rate is affected by age, gender, and muscle mass. The metabolism works fastest during periods of spontaneous growth, such as during infancy or adolescence. Additionally, because men generally have a naturally higher ratio of muscle to fat, their metabolisms are often faster than those of women. One simple way to speed up the metabolism and eliminate belly fat regardless of age or sex is to consume a drink crafted from the following revitalizing ingredients.
This beverage is created with a blend of one cucumber, parsley or cilantro, one lemon, a tablespoon of grated fresh ginger, a tablespoon of Aloe Vera juice, and half a glass of water. Cucumbers contain only forty-five calories each, along with a high water and fiber content. Parsley and cilantro are also low in calories, and high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to aid the body in counteracting the deterioration of stored food products. All of these components work together to retain water without causing bloating or feelings of discomfort within the stomach.
