When weight loss stalls, it’s usually a sign that your body has adapted to your new way of eating and shifted into starvation mode to prevent further slimming. Fortunately, you can trick your body into revving metabolism back up with this plateau-busting sip: Steep 1 green tea bag in 8 oz. of hot water for 5 minutes; add 2 to 3 whole, peeled garlic cloves and steep for another 3 minutes. Remove tea bag and garlic. Enjoy one to two times per day.
In each glass of this soothing broth-like sip, you’ll get a dose of two powerful phytonutrients (catechins and allicin) that work synergistically to boost the body’s ability to convert fat into usable fuel by 77 percent, increase calorie expenditure by 33 percent and stabilize blood-sugar levels to stave off cravings. All told, these effects are helping women who sip garlic green tea daily lose 2 to 3 pounds per week!
