I mean women will try all sorts of fad diets, cutting out all carbs, weight loss pill popping, starvation and drinking the “BeyBey Juice”. Yes, juice made of lemon, cayenne pepper, syrup and water. What I call “BeyBey Juice” just to cut inches. Now I don’t want to knock your fat loss hustle but I do want to share insight to more natural and healthier ways of living.
With that said BFM recommends stocking your kitchen with these two treats:
According to the Scripps Clinic “Grapefruit Diet” study led by Dr. Ken Fujioka, grapefruit eaten before meals is associated with improved insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is cells that don’t use insulin effectively. This means cells have trouble absorbing glucose, which causes a buildup of sugar in the blood. This could lead to pre-diabetic and diabetic conditions. Insulin resistance may damage your heart vessels if gone unnoticed, increasing you risk to heart disease and stroke. According to the American Heart Association, eating higher amounts flavonoids compound found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit may lower ischemic stroke risk for women. The power of fiber, potassium, lycopene, vitamin C, and choline in grapefruit all help to maintain a healthy heart. Lastly, grapefruit can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer.
Now ladies and Gents, the 2nd gotta have item is Green tea! It’s known as one of the world’s healthiest drink. Green tea is filled with antioxidants and polyphenols which reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals are known to play a role in aging. We all want to stay young and beautiful! Green tea contains a polyphenol called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). It has powerful antioxidant effects against free radicals, unstable molecules that can damage healthy cells and cause cancer as a result. According to a paper published in “Biochemical Pharmacology” in 2011, EGCG has proven to inhibit tumor growth in a variety of test-tube studies involving cancer of the stomach, lungs, liver, breast and colon. Last but not least, green tea also helps brain health by improving cognitive functions, making it a great aid against Alzheimer and Parkinson’s disease.
