Shortly after I was born, my mother developed diabetes. It runs in our family; I lost an uncle to the disease, and I have other relatives who struggle with it. I remember the day I sat with her, after doctors had told her the limitations of Western medicine when it came to diabetes. I asked her about her time as a nurse in Korea, and what she knew of Eastern medicine. And the same word kept coming up time and again: Tea.
Brazilian scientists found that participants who consumed three cups of the beverage every day for a week had fewer markers of the cell damage caused by resistance to exercise. That means that green tea can also help you recover faster after an intense workout. In another study—this one on people—participants who combined a daily habit of four to five cups of green tea each day with a 25-minute workout for 12 weeks lost an average of two more pounds than the non-tea-drinking exercisers.

Your lower belly fat may also be a result of sedentary behaviors. If you aren't burning the calories you consume, the excess accumulates in your belly. Getting more active, such as working up to 150 minutes -- or longer -- of moderate-intensity cardiovascular activity per week helps. You'll also benefit from being active all day long with small movements such as fidgeting and pacing.
A pear-shaped body type tends to have a smaller waist with larger hips and legs. Although an overweight pear-shaped person may still have higher than ideal levels of visceral fat, her risk for heart disease tends to be lower because she stores more fat in her extremities. As a result, she has less toxic fat surrounding her organs and producing dangerous hormones and byproducts.

When you decide to “go on a diet,” you’re making the conscious decision that this is a temporary choice. You’re going to go on it, but that means that you’re going to one day—probably sooner than you expect—go off it. That’s the concept of weight cycling (also known as yo-yo dieting), and it’s extremely unhealthy. A 2014 study in the journal Diabetes Care found that a pattern of weight cycling—losing at least five pounds and then gaining it back within two years—resulted in as much as a 33 percent higher risk of diabetes and higher blood pressure.

The kiwi has vitamins A and E which will help you to rid your body of free radicals and they help to flush toxins from your colon.

The first type of belly fat to know about is intra-abdominal fat, which Dr. David Greuner, a New York City surgeon, describes as fat that's closely related to your glucose and insulin metabolism. "Intra-abdominal fat is that inside the peritoneal cavity, made up of fat on and within the organs (liver and intestines) and the omentum (an apron of fat that hangs off the stomach)," he says.

Eat five or six smaller meals per day. According to "The Abs Diet," this diet strategy elevates your metabolic rate so that you burn more fat and store less of it. Include lean sources of protein, low-glycemic carbohydrates and fruits and vegetables, as well as healthy fats, in every meal. These nutrient-dense foods not only cleanse our bodies, but also make us feel like we are eating more, with fewer calories than unhealthy alternatives.
I ordered this tea to aid in both my weight loss efforts and to detox my system. My metabolism has slowed down, i’m tired all the time and I am battling hormone issues.

It’s changing my life!

So-called "detox" teas have been popular for years, primarily among people who frequent health-food stores, or consult with alternative practitioners. These days, though, they've become big business, and a handful of celebrities are touting their weight-loss benefits on social media. In a way, detox teas have become the liquid version of waist trainers–the before and after results are often dramatic, and their celeb backing generates buzz, but you may be wondering: Do they really work, and are they safe? Before you plunk down your hard-earned money and start sipping, here are five things you should know.
The hop, a component in beer, is a sedative plant whose pharmacological activity is due primarily to the bitter resins in the leaves. Hops increase the activity of the neurotransmitter GABA, which soothes the central nervous system. Spanish researchers reported in a 2012 journal that the sedative activity of hops aids nocturnal sleep. Knocking out stress will also decrease your levels of cortisol, that stress hormone I mentioned earlier, which tells your body to store fat.

Core exercises go far beyond your grandparent’s idea of sit-ups and pushups. The core is everything in your trunk, from your upper legs, hips, abs, back, and chest. Exercises that focus on improving your core muscles help you improve your strength and tone beneath your fat. Exercises for love handles should include plenty of core exercise. Focusing on your core should form a major component of your cardio routine and improved diet.
There’s a reason why Popeye always ate his spinach. Spinach is loaded with nutritious ingredients. Spinach’s high vitamin and mineral count support a healthy body, while the water and fiber in spinach help you feel full. Plus, research shows that spinach helps bust cravings. A professor of appetite regulation at Lund University in Sweden, Charlotte Erlanson-Albertsson, explored the effects of spinach extract on 15 participants. The extract was given each morning and participants reported that it became easier to fight off those between-meal temptations as the study progressed. He discovered that a key compound found in spinach, thylakoid, makes spinach digest slower and alleviates hunger pangs. (4)
Harvard University states “that visceral fat pumps out immune system chemicals called cytokines — for example, tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-6 — that can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.” Harvard goes on to state that “these and other biochemicals are thought to have deleterious effects on cells’ sensitivity to insulin, blood pressure, and blood clotting.”

This is the result of a lazy thyroid, the gland being responsible for producing hormones that control the metabolism. A lower metabolism is surely a trigger for weight gain, but it’s not just the excess belly fat that gives headaches to this group of people: they also tend to have poor circulation and cold extremities, hair loss, saggy underarm skin and brittle fingernails.
