Bedtime Drink To Lose Belly Fat In a Week
Are you looking for a bedtime drink to lose belly fat in a week? Here is a simple recipe that I have used for years to help me lose extra pounds around the waistline easily at home. Not only is this drink safe to use but it is tasty and easy to make. If you have the ingredients, your drink can be ready in less than 5 minutes.
I used to weigh over 120 kilograms a few years ago and trust me, I know what it feels like to carry around excess fat around the belly area. Not only is it embarrassing but it is extremely unhealthy and frustrating! I decided to take a trip to a nutritionist after months of trying to make a decision and I am honestly glad I did!
I was put on a strict 1300 calorie diet plan along with the bedtime drink I am about to show you guys for 3 months and was able to lose 27 kilograms! I have been drinking this recipe every now and then whenever I feel a little heavy around the waistline for some time now and it works miracles.
Bedtime Drink To Lose Belly Fat In a Week
As much as I recommend drinking the following bedtime drink for weight loss, I also ask that you please consult your doctor before trying it if you have any health problems. Because this drink consists of ginger and cayenne pepper, both of which can increase symptoms of high blood pressure and allergies in people who already have these conditions.
- 1-inch ginger root
- 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 2 glasses of water
Preparation & Consumption
Grate the ginger and cut the lemon into slices without peeling it and set them aside. Add the water into a teapot and set it on the stove, add in the ginger root along with the lemon and let it come to a boil, cut off the heat. Add in the cayenne pepper, cinnamon powder, and stir until all of the ingredients are mixed properly.
Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes and using a small eye strainer, strain it into a large glass, stir in the honey, and drink it right away before you go to bed. This drink can be consumed 3 to 4 times during the day 30 minutes before or during meals to help you digest, burn, and eat less food.
Benefits Of This Weight Loss Bedtime Drink
Ginger contains fat-burning properties known as gingerol which helps boost metabolism, reduces hunger, and keeps you feeling full longer after meals. Lemon contains citric acid which helps you digest food easily. Drinking lemon juice will also help keep you feeling full and reduce sugar cravings.
Cayenne pepper is hot and spicy therefore it increases the metabolism along with the body’s temperature. When your body temperature rises, it goes into a cool down mode, this process makes the body burn calories and lose weight without even trying.
Cinnamon is very high in fiber, therefore it improves digestion, keeps you feeling full, and reduces food cravings. Adding cinnamon to your drink will help increase your metabolism because your body needs more energy to process this spice than it does with other foods.

Causes Of Belly Fat
There are two main causes of belly fat, sugar, and carbs! People who eat high sugar foods and drinks along with a high carb diet not only store fat around the belly area but also suffer from visceral belly fat as well. (More on that below). With that being said, other daily habits can contribute to the formation of belly fat such as the following:
- Drinking alcohol
- Not exercising or being inactive
- Eating foods high in trans fats & carbs
- Consuming low protein diets
- Drinking sodas and other high sugary beverages
- Having unhealthy gut bacteria overgrowth
Types Of Belly Fat
There are two main types of belly fat, visceral belly fat, and subcutaneous belly fat. Visceral belly fat is the type of fat that surrounds your internal organs while subcutaneous belly bat is the type of fat that is found right under the skin. Simply put, visceral is the inner fat and subcutaneous is the outer fat.
Visceral belly fat can be very dangerous and can lead to life-threatening health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, low liver function, and digestive problems. Visceral belly fat is harder to get rid of and easier to accumulate while subcutaneous belly fat is vice versa. Losing subcutaneous belly fat can be done easily by working out, walking, and drinking enough water daily while visceral belly fat requires a complete diet change to get rid of.
Effective Tips To Lose Belly Fat Fast
As I stated above, eating the right foods and consuming fewer calories is the best way to lose belly fat, overall weight, and maintain your weight. Following yoyo diets can help you shake off a few pounds here and there but 99% of the time, the weight comes right back on. Below are effective tips to follow that can help you lose belly fat and overall body weight.
- Eating foods that are rich in soluble fiber
- Limit your sugar intake
- Eat protein-rich foods
- Eat a lot of green vegetables
- Drink enough water
- Incorporate yoga or meditation to reduce stress
- Do aerobics to strengthen your muscles
- Limit foods with trans fat
- Limit high carbs foods
- Change your mindset
- Tackle the cause of your weight gain
- Make a decision
I highly recommend this drink because it works really well for me. That being said, to lose weight and keep it off, you will need to consume low-calorie foods and also stick to a low-calorie diet. Drinking enough water daily and keeping your stress levels down will also help you stay healthy and fit.
