Losing weight is a fairly straightforward process. Simply reduce the number of calories you eat, and increase the number of calories you burn. If you are interested in dropping some weight, eat healthy, eat less, and hit the gym. Physical exercise is the the primary method available to you to burn calories.

Your body stores its excess calories as fat. Most people who want to lose weight are thinking in terms of losing fat. Cutting back on calories you put into your body creates a caloric deficit. When your body faces such a deficit, it accesses its stored sources of energy, in the form of fat, to meet its need for calories.

The extra fat you carry on your body is its energy reserves. As your body has a need for more energy than it is taking in through food, it turns to these energy reserves, as well as glycogen/sugar and possibly its protein reserves. In response, fat stores begin to disappear.

A recent article in Life, Health and Food recommends a night time drink that can greatly reduce your fat levels, particularly belly fat. According to the article, drinking a single glass of this juice at bedtime can help you lose weight.

As you fall asleep, your metabolism slows down dramatically. The ingredients in this drink will jump start your metabolism, so your body will continue burning fat while you sleep.

The article recommends you substitute this drink for dinner, at least for a few weeks. The author says you’ll be amazed by the results.

    You may have saved the proverbial day with the last statement of the cocktail mix…if you do not like the taste of grapefruit, you may substitute lime, lemon, orange, or tangerine in lieu of grapefruit…why? because most obese or even slightly fat people have to take statins and grapefruit and statins are a medical “no-no”. Also, I know that fresh is better, but certain times of the year citrus fruits can be expensive; yet, canned, bottled, or frozen citrus fruit juices can be less expensive…just don’t buy the ones which have preservatives added or “any” form of sugar/corn syrup. Read all of the label and anything which you do not know what is…Google it, before buying it as one can containing sodium benzonate or one with maltodextrin can set you back “chemically” to square one or below again.
