There are a lot of methods and programs out there claiming to help you melt fat and lose weight in ridiculously short amounts of time. Many of these methods include expensive supplements, excessive calorie counting and, in some cases, pills or techniques that may be harmful to your health in the long run.
More and more people are realizing that short-term solutions are not the answer. Lifestyle changes, eating better food, balanced exercise and reducing stress have become the focus of many natural doctors when working with patients.
The combination of banana and ginger has been looked at as a way of helping people to lose weight. We are definitely fans of both of those ingredients and think they have a lot of potentials when combined!

Ingredients Health Benefits Bananas
Researchers at a university in Mexico found that regular banana consumption in obese adults was linked to more weight loss than those who didn’t consume bananas.
Bananas are full of fiber and pectin – both of which contribute to good digestion and toxin removal. Unlike many weight loss supplements, bananas will also provide a good energy boost and are used by athletes for sustainable energy during a workout or for workout recovery.
A study done at a university in Egypt found that use of ginger had “great ability” to reduce body weight while also balancing cholesterol levels.
Ginger is considered one of the healthiest spices on the planet. It is particularly beneficial for reducing nausea, morning sickness, motion sickness and other symptoms of digestive distress. Certain compounds in ginger actually help to regulate the movements of the stomach wall.
Flaxseeds contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B1, copper, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. They have been studied vigorously for their potential ability to prevent and/or reduce one’s risk of cancer and other diseases. Flaxseeds are also excellent for digestion.
Not only are blueberries absolutely delicious, but they were also named a top fat-fighting food by WebMD. Blueberries are full of antioxidants, fiber and water which help to fill you up, aid digestion, reduce cravings and fight disease.
A recent study by Lund University found that the thylakoids in spinach have potential to increase weight loss by 43% compared to those given a placebo! It was also said to significantly reduce cravings for unhealthy foods.
When your body is getting the nourishment that it needs, losing weight becomes much easier. Instead of worrying constantly about calorie intake and exercising more than you can stand, focus simply on giving your body nutrient-dense real food.
Not only will the simple habit of making the healthier choice jumpstart your weight loss goals, but it will also leave you healthier, happier, smarter and with more energy.
