Burn Belly Fat Like Crazy with This Kiwi Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
Millions of people across America (not to mention worldwide) struggle with stubborn abdominal fat, which can be difficult to shed even when a healthy lifestyle is adopted. Not only is abdominal fat, also called visceral fat or ‘belly fat,’ unsightly, it can lead to an increased risk of a number of health conditions.
Some of the risks associated with carrying excess fat around your middle are a greater susceptibility to type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, as this fat tends to coat vital organs, it can cause system-wide inflammation that can trigger an array of other chronic illnesses.
We would like to suggest a smoothie recipe that will help you achieve your belly slimming goal extremely fast. The perfect combination of ingredients high in vitamin C and ingredients rich in healthy fats makes this smoothie an ideal choice for all those who want to reduce stomach fat fast and easy.
When you start consuming this drink you will soon be surprised by the effects of vitamin C and coconut oil on abdominal fat.
Adequate vitamin C is essential for proper fat metabolism. Low vitamin C is linked with increased weight and higher waist measurements. Patients with low vitamin C tend to have more stomach fat despite overall weight loss. Vitamin C is required for production of molecules used in oxidation, or metabolism, of fatty tissue. Without sufficient vitamin C, your body is unable to use stored fat. Your body is still producing fatty tissue for energy, but is unable to use it. This causes a buildup of fat, especially in the abdominal area.
The Journal of Nutrition published a study where researches investigated all studies relative to medium chain fatty acids(MCFAs) that are abundant in coconut oil and weight management.
The studies showed that diets rich in fats such as those found in coconut oil and coconut milk prompted a boost in metabolism, increase in energy, decrease in food consumption, reduced body weight and lowered body fat mass.
When MCFAs are metabolized, ketone bodies are created in the liver – these have been shown to have a strong appetite reducing effect helping you to lose fat faster.
This super easy but effective creamsicle smoothie will help you get rid of the excess pounds in a really short time. It is also effective for people who are slim but nevertheless struggle with belly fat.
Drink this for a period of 15 days at least once a day instead of a meal or as a snack.
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tsp. coconut oil
Combine the ingredients in a blender and process well until smooth and creamy. Enjoy the taste and slim down your belly.
