Dieting and not losing weight? What should I do to lose weight and burn stomach fat fast? Like in a week? Boost your metabolism!
Mind you, this is not a “lose weight in 24 hours” kind of article. This is what will you achieve a successful weight loss and give you the dream body you wished for.
Recently I found out that poor metabolism has a lot to do with our weight gain. When your metabolic rate is slow, it affects the ability to keep off extra pounds. You accumulate calories which increases your body size even if you eat a little. Slow metabolism makes you weigh more and several factors determine that your metabolism is faulty. It could be due to toxins, eating too few calories and stress.
Having a good metabolism will help you lose weight and burn stomach fat.
Some may say; you need to stay active and eat a healthy diet to lose weight. Even at that, the body needs better metabolic system to burn off fat and energy for basic body functions. Therefore no matter what you do, if the metabolic system is sluggish, your weight loss journey will be a waste.
How to know your metabolism is poor?
- Eating healthy food and still weigh more
- Unexplained weight gain
- Dry skin
- Constant headache
- Sugar craving
The secret of losing weight and burning stomach fat depends in an individual’s metabolism rate. That is, the way your body utilizes food to produce energy and processes it out of the body. Herbal tea is one of the best ways to increase metabolism.

Turmeric: turmeric helps one to deal with any stomach issues (including stomach fat), metabolic disorder, obesity and inflammation. It contains curcumin which is an antioxidant that suppresses the inflammatory messaging in fat. This helps to reduce high blood sugar, cholesterol and other metabolic conditions.
Cinnamon: this is a great fat burner like ginger. It makes the body burn fat; lower the blood sugar levels and reduces the risk of diabetes. Cinnamon is thermogenic, this means it produces heat and burn fat through metabolic stimulation.
Chia seeds: good source of omega 3 fatty acid. They are high in antioxidants, calcium, iron and lots of fibers too. If you don’t eat fish, chia seeds are replacement for fish. They keep you full longer. I recommend you to buy the original chia seeds from Online Stores.
