Ginger is not only tasty but can actually help control appetite by regulating blood sugar and whey cholesterol. It is when the blood sugar drops that we are struck by addictions that lead to snacking and overeating. Incorporating it into our cocktail recipe at night sets you up for a good day’s diet when you wake up.
Ginger is also great for suppressing the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with fat accumulation. It interrupts a vicious cycle that makes you reach for candy when you feel stressed and then store all the excess fats around your middle because of cortisol, which makes you feel stressed first!
