Ginger Weight Loss Benefits

Ginger Weight Loss Benefits

You probably think I’m crazy for writing about ginger weight loss benefits, but a lot of people have been trying out ginger as an aid to their diets.

It is generally consumed in the form of a tea.

Now I am, to all intents and purposes, a veteran of slimming teas. If there is a tea that’s supposed to aid weight loss there’s a good chance that I have at one point drank it.

I was genuinely shocked when somebody suggested ginger tea so I had to research it before giving it a try and here is what I discovered…

The Benefits of Ginger Tea

Ginger can help lower cholesterol levels. This is great when you are dieting but helpful in general for improving your health.

Speaking of improving your health, Ginger is good for joint pain but also effective at easing issues with your gastrointestinal system.

Ginger manages to handle your cortisol levels which in turn prevents your body developing an excess of belly fat. It has appetite suppressant abilities meaning that it will stop you from feeling hungry.

It also aids motility in your bowels meaning that food travels more smoothly through your intestines which should result in an easier weight loss program.

A Hands on Experience!

It all sounds pretty impressive but even having researched the positive effects of ginger tea I was still skeptical as to how effective it would be.

I love green and herbal teas and have discovered from past experiences that you will seldom find a better weight loss aid than so-called slimming teas.

But most of the teas I have tried in the past have worked through binding to fat so your stool has a higher fat content, what this means is that your body stores a lot less fat.

Ginger tea, of course, does not do this.

However I was pleased to discover that what it does do is aid your good habits in a significant but subtle way. I genuinely noticed that I wasn’t so hungry and this is always a problem area for me.

I’m a notorious “snacker” and felt hungry far less than usual.

What it did do as well was make my gut feel good (for want of a better phrase) – I can suffer occasionally from a bloated feeling and the effects on my digestion were definitely positive.

In terms of taste it was delicious, warming and spicy. I’ve always been a fan of ginger beer anyway so it’s no surprise that drinking ginger tea was enjoyable for me.

So do I Give it The Thumbs up?

So having agonized over ginger weight loss benefits I have decided it is a winner and that it may well oust good old mint tea as my new evening tea.

It won’t give you the dramatic weight loss that some green tea’s do, but what it will give you is a nice settled feeling in your stomach and help with those hunger pangs.

Which makes it a very valuable addition to any conscientious eater’s diet.

  1. I’ve heard about Ginger before but I never knew what it did exactly especially in regards to weight loss. I also didn’t know that it was an appetite suppressant which is wonderful because I do eat too much sometimes haha! Most of the time that I hear about Ginger I hear it from the people mixing it in with other healthy vegetables and Herb’s so this is definitely good information.

    1. Yeah it’s a pretty useful ingredient Chris – it’s also got good qualities for handling colds (from what I’m told!).

  2. What a coincidence to see this article, I have just had a ginger tea. My wife made it following somebody’s advice: with added curcuma (or is it kurkuma?) So this is a tea made of the fresh roots of the two plants. Great stuff, I can warmly recommend. Put it into thermos bottle and keep there and drink during the day. You can use it again tomorrow, just add hot water, it will be string enough.

    1. That is a pretty cool coincidence Jovo – sounds delicious! I’m going to have to look into this curcuma/Kurkuma additive now!!!! πŸ™‚

  3. Thank you for the information on ginger. The only time I use it is to add flavor to herbal teas. It is great to use during cold and flu season. After reading your website, I will start using ginger on a regular basis. I was wondering, is ginger hard to grow?

  4. This sounds too good to be true. How can ginger be so effective and why hasn’t anyone tried to market it more? Thanks for sharing this info. Wonderful. I am curious to see if ginger tea has the same affect on me. I too always struggle with that hunger pang factor. Thanks again!

    1. No problem – I think there are a few ginger-related weight loss options out there now but they are probably heavily overpriced!!!!

  5. Thank you for such an informative and interesting post. I love Ginger but I never knew it could help with weight loss. By the way, it is delicious in black coffee too – that’s how the Yemenite Jews in Israel drink their coffee. It’s called ‘hawaij’ but it is actually Ginger. And they are usually not overweight – interesting.

    1. That’s interesting stuff Hannah – I had heard about hawaij before but I had no idea it was ginger based! There may be an update in this article after hearing this πŸ™‚

  6. Hi,
    Very informative article. I’ve always enjoyed eating ginger (pickled and candy) but never thought about a tea before.
    When is the best time of day to drink it, or does that matter?
    I’m guessing morning to benefit from the full feeling in the gut, but would like to know your thoughts.

    1. I go for the mornings really mate, I don’t feel the taste fits into the later stages of the day (if you get my meaning!). It’s all down to the individual though – drink it when you feel like it! πŸ™‚

  7. I find ginger gives a nice kick to my smoothies in the morning. Seems to boost digestion and an all round good feeling. I actually got the smoothie idea of a mate who has IBS and suffers with it in the mornings!

    No idea how much is too much but I generally get away with half an inch size root – this seems to be perfect and does not overpower you.

    I’ll have to try it in a tea as an alternative…very interesting idea!

    Thanks for yet another great article – love this site and the ideas you present here! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Dushan,

      Ginger and digestion is a big one for me – always helps out as I’m not great with my stomach at times (apparently I get that from my mother’s side of the family).

      It’s funny you should mention smoothies, as a visitor to the site sent me three recipes for ginger-related smoothies last weekend! I was actually thinking of including them in an article on the site this week (so keep an eye out!).

      Great speaking with you and thanks for taking the time to leave your opinion with us…

      Stay Healthy! πŸ™‚
