Boosting Your Burning..........

.......... with 5 healthy things.

In  my weekly magazine were 12 pages, a whole section, with advice for health and beauty, one better than the other and one more forgetfull and expensive than the other . But there was a good little page with 5 healthy things which would be easy to remember. And not only if you want a weight loss but just want to treat your body in a good way.

Green Tea.
Most people know green tea. It promotes the combustion, it reduces the bad cholesterol and reduces the fat depots. Studies have shown that green tea inhibits the ensyme lipase, which deplete the fat in the food, and therefore lesser fat is absorbed. Green tea also stimulates the thermogenesis, (which promotes the calorie burning). Green tea reduces the speed, and thereby carbohydrates are taken into the bloodstream.

New studies show that special natural plant-substances like capsaicin and epigallocatechin gallate affect the food-caused stimulation of the compustion. Both substances are in chili. Strong spices boot the system and give you warmth -  and at the same time they boot the socalled food-induced compustion - daily just called compustion or burning - and this burns off your calories.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar alone does not give you a weight loss, but together with a sensible food it supports the weight loss immensely and counteracts the side effects in a food, which contains lesser calories than you burn.


It has been shown that plant chemicals in grapefruit can contribute to reduce the insuline level in the body and thereby the amount of the energy from the meal, which is transformed into fat.


All Vitamins and Minerals
And then it is important to be supplied with all essential vitamins, minerals and fats daily - especially if you want a weight loss.

I'm feeling a bit like Garfield lately, so thanks for these tips. I was aware, but clearly needed a reminder. :)

Are the two photos of Viborg in your sidebar yours? They are beautiful. The reflections wonderful!

Hi, Grethe, again! Japanese people drink green tea every day with almost every meal. Catechin, the cause of bitter taste of Japanese green tea, is effective against proliferation of damaged cells like cancer. Some nutrients like vitamin E, carotene and fiber don’t dissolve in water, so in order to take all the nutrients, “matcha”, or powdered green tea is best. If you don’t like its bitter taste, you can use green tea powder when making sweets. I like “matcha” flavored ice cream, mousse, and baked cakes.

I need to try out the tea, I dont drink it very often.

Really great tips - think I'll have a cup of tea this afternoon (which I should do every afternoon). Oh, all the things we're supposed to do. *sighs*

Hej Teresa, that's funny! I always end up with Garfield because I feel related to him! ´)
The photos from Viborg are from a very cold day by a lake, and my fingers were stiff with cold. It's a little warmer today, but every time I have been out, the anemones and the little yellow buttercups have closed their heads. Come on Mother Sun! Shine on us poor little creatures!
Tell me what I have wished for now, when I begin to quarrel about the eventual heat-wave in May!

Thank you very much, Yoko, for your good tips about the matcha tea. I'm sure I would like it, I never use sugar in tea or coffee. And the matcha is useful in cakes and ice. There are really many possibilities.
I have started with sensha tea, but we can buy the matcha tea via the net. There isn't any Japanese shop in my town where I can buy masha tea. In Copenhagen are some. My son has bought a Japanese tea-pot and a couple of fine darkgreen Japanese ceramic cups via the net. It's pretty and good quality.
But we've got many sushi-restaurants/cafés in my town now. They pop up like flowers - and our Danish sausage-waggons disappear. I also saw a Thai-restaurant downtown, where they now say in their PR that they also serve sushi.
I trust the sushi places run by Japanese, and I really dont' say this because I write to you. This is just my opinion. When it's about raw fish it has to be perfect. But I'm not yet so happy about eating sushi! Although I know it is so healthy.

I'm a tough coffee-drinker, Steve, but I also drink tea in the evenings. I'm really interested in green tea because it has this positive influence on your health.

Kittie, I couldn't help laughing, I know what you mean. All the things we have to do, all the things we have to remember. And sometimes we remember them for a little while and then forget. I know for sure. And I can tell you it's growing worse when you are getting older, beause more things will be added to the other things!! And what happens if there is a memory loss too? "Oh hell, now I cannot find my keys!" That's only the beginning......

(now, where did I put that book?)
