Drink This for Weight Loss When You Wake Up and Go to Sleep

Drink This for Weight Loss When You Wake Up and Go to Sleep

Yet another one of those weight loss gimmicks, or is it?

It’s true that the flood of information around weight loss can be overwhelming at times, so it was refreshing for me to experience – like a cool glass of lemonade on a hot summer’s day – the benefits of lemon tea for my health, and weight loss.

In my research of natural alternatives for common health issues, I discovered that there are natural remedies out there for almost any ailment you might have. The Chinese have been experts in medicinal medicine before we of the west even conjured up the idea of a doctor, so there’s merit in looking towards ancient – and sometimes simplistic – remedies for woes such as weight loss.

In fact, drinking a glass of warm lemon tea upon waking, and before bed, is even more effective than many high-priced weight loss products on the market. This drink has multiple benefits for your health, and will also help you start your day vitalized and ready for action!

Drink Lemon Tea to Lose Weight

Put those diet pills away! Now you have a more natural way to lose weight with lemon tea. It’s well known that lemon boosts your metabolism, which makes your body burn calories faster. The rate of increase will vary according to your individual body type, but it’s common for your metabolism to remain elevated for many hours after consuming lemon tea – a super efficient way to shed excessive fat without the need for dietary supplements.

Try this recipe:

  1. Prepare a cup of piping-hot filtered water.
  2. Add a teaspoon of organic grated or dried ginger.
  3. A pinch of organic cayenne. Warning: Too much can lead to uncomfortable consequences.
  4. A dash of honey to taste.

Of course, you won’t lose weight by drinking lemon tea all on its own, but it can be a helpful part of your daily routine. To be effective, this drink needs to be combined with an exercise plan and a healthy food regime.

But doesn’t that require additional energy that can be lacking from your diet meal plan?

Lemon Tea Also Gives You Energy to Exercise

Drinking a lemon tea combined with honey and warm water acts as a much-needed boost to your glycogen levels, restoring your depleted electrolytes and providing you with a boost of energy.

I personally drink a concoction of lemon, ginger, cayenne, and honey every morning. This powerful combination leads to an increased vitality and higher energy level which you can use to power your morning exercise regimen.

A Post-Weight-Loss Boost With Lemon Tea

Weight loss can be taxing on your health, and lemon tea can help.

While weight loss results are a rewarding experience for anyone looking to shed unwanted pounds from their posterior, there are some transformational effects of substantial weight loss that can require additional healing power. And while there are cosmetic procedures to heal your skin and to make you look young again, your internals may also need healing. That’s where this wonder drink can assist.

Drinking lemon tea before bed and upon waking:

  • Improves your digestion: Lemon juice is good for you liver, as it encourages the production of bile, and bile assists your digestive system to process complex foods. The combination of lemon, honey, and warm water also creates a better environment in your stomach and colon, so your digestion of food is improved.
  • Boosts your immune system: Honey is an immune system booster, as it has the ability to fight bacteria in your stomach. Lemon also consists of vitamins, minerals, and other useful ingredients that lift your immune system.
  • Detoxifies your body: Drinking lemon tea promotes a natural detox effect since lemon contains citric acid which boosts the work rate of your liver, and contributes to a more regular flushing of your organs.

Drink Your Way to Weight Loss

Drinking lemon tea when you wake in the morning, then again before you go to sleep, is a powerful way to lose weight and increase your energy to exercise, naturally.

Ditch the weight loss shake and fad weight loss diet, and stick to the fundamentals instead. It could also be a great idea for a weight loss lemonade stand in your neighborhood.

Hmm… Shark Tank here I come!

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
