If you on a weight loss diet you must have heard a dozen advisers catering to your diet and workout regimen. Probably the most common weight loss suggestion is to make the most of on mornings. Mornings are always considered to be the best time to work towards your desired body. Since during the morning time, our metabolism is the highest.
Irrespective of whatever we eat during mornings the calories that are generated through the food would be spent more efficiently. Therefore, the meal rich in protein and fibres is the best way to kickstart your mornings.
Fibre-rich vegetable juices work amazingly to get rid of the extra inches around the belly. Lauki juice or bottle gourd is regarded as one of the healthiest food in the world of health and nutrition. A book entitled ‘101 Weight Loss Tips’ written by Dr.Shikha Sharma states that having a glass of ghia juice or lauki juice in the morning on an empty stomach helps to aid weight loss and metabolism.
Needless to say that Lauki is one of the popular and loved Indian summer vegetable. This vegetable is enriched with hydrating and nourishing characteristics. Lauki is rich in vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. It also posses essential minerals like sodium, calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium.
Another book by Asha Thorat in her book ‘25 Fat Burning Juice Recipes’ writes that fiber is the key to weight loss. Also, bottle gourd contains fewer calories with no fat.”
Lauki is rich in both soluble and insoluble fibers. Fibre takes the longest time to digest. Which means it stays in your system for long, thereby inducing a sense of satiety. If you feel full you would naturally binge less. High fibre also helps facilitate smoother digestion, a healthy digestion is a key to healthy weight loss.
Another significant work of bottle gourd is that an amount of 100 grams of bottle gourd contain about 15 calories and a mere 1 gram of fat. And it also lows in saturated fat and cholesterol! In order to get the best results, you should take the juice in the morning on an empty stomach. Also, one should consume the juice immediately as it oxidizes quite fast.
