What Makes this Recipe so Effective?
Let’s see one by one the benefits that these foods bring to us:
The tomato contains very few calories, and a lot of water (beneficial for all diets). But the true power of the tomato is that it’s the food with the most amount of Lycopene.
Lycopene is a non-provitamin carotenoid. It has properties which oxidize the adipose tissues of the body. This’s stated in the study “An Update on the Health Effects of Tomato Lycopene”, published on the Annu Rev Food Technol by the National Center for the Biotechnology Information NCBI: “Alternatively, lycopene could be broken down nonspecifically by reaction with reactive oxygen species or co-oxidation with other lipids in the tissue.”
It contains antioxidants called bioflavonoids. Researchers say that these are responsible for the benefits of the lemon. It’s also a natural diuretic and contains a fiber called Pectin, which helps boost your metabolism. The greatest slimming potential is obtained from phenols.
One study, published in 2008, found that when the individual had lemon phenols along with a high-fat diet for 12 weeks, they didn’t gain as much weight as the ones who didn’t get the lemon phenols.
Finally, it contains Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) national nutrient database says that a 58 gr lemon contains 44.5 mg of this vitamin.
Capsaicin is the component that gives the chili its spiciness and also the one that helps to accelerate the metabolism. It’s found mainly in the veins and seeds of this vegetable. Ingesting Chili we increase the temperature of the body. By the scientific principle of thermogenesis, this excess of heat requires an extra metabolic work. Therefore, consuming this species induces the body to consume more calories and that helps us burn fat.
The secret of ginger also resides in its antioxidant effect. The ginger essential oil, Gingerol, has an extraordinary effect on the elimination of radicals and toxins in the body. According to the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health: “Ginger contains many phenolic compounds such as gingerol, shogaol and paradol that exhibit antioxidant, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory properties.”
In addition to being a low-calorie food, the celery brings two good elements in this recipe. First, it’s a high-fiber food. Fiber is a fundamental element to lose weight. A study from the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that adding extra fiber to our diets is a critical issue of the weight loss. The second element that contributes is its strong antioxidant potential.
