How to cook ginger for weight loss?

Those who are eager to regain a slim figure, it is useful to know how to cook ginger for weight loss.

As Australian biochemists found out, ginger helps maintain blood sugar levels within the physiological norm. This is important because its decrease leads to a feeling of hunger, that is, increases appetite.

In addition, the biologically active substances of ginger root help the body better absorb nutrients from a smaller amount of food.

Another study conducted in 2012 at the Institute of Human Nutrition (Columbia University, USA) led to slightly different conclusions. According to data published in the Metabolism Journal, this study showed that ginger has no effect on glucose, insulin, lipids, or inflammatory markers. However, drinks with ginger enhance thermogenesis (burning calories) and reduce hunger.

So the first recipe for weight loss is green tea with ginger. Green tea is used to suppress appetite due to the content of gallate epigallocatechin (EGCG). And ginger improves digestion and stimulates the metabolism.

Шумиха вокруг зеленого кофе началась в апреле 2012 года после выпуска американского телешоу Dr. Oz (Доктор Оз), посвященного зеленому кофе и проблемам борьбы с лишним весом (которым страдает две трети населения США). Продажи этого продукта (который у розничного покупателя не пользовался спросом) сразу подскочили в несколько раз. Сам ведущий Мехмет Оз сделал удивленный вид и назвал эффект своего телешоу «началом маркетингового апокалипсиса»…

Both fellow doctors and journalists criticize Dr. Oz, so studies on the effectiveness of green coffee for burning fat have not been carried out, except for 100 women who agreed to drink this coffee for two weeks. Doctors consider the results of such an experiment unconvincing, especially since no one has provided a statistical analysis.
