Fat burning ingredients at-a-glance
In the season of wearing sleeveless shirt and shorts, you cannot hide any excess fat. You may think about losing weight. From the perspective of Chinese medicine, you should understand your body condition first. For example, you should figure out if you truly have obesity (strong and dense muscle, with a large appetite and always hungry) or have asthenic weight gain (loose muscles, poor appetite, cold and bloated limbs). Besides conditioning the body, eating more Chinese hawthorn and lotus leaf can also improve fat burn. The fresh Chinese hawthorn looks like a mini apple and can be eaten as fruit or can be brewed with water. Fresh lotus leaf can be used directly to cook soup or congee, and they will be found every summer in the market. Dried Chinese hawthorn and dried lotus leaf are more common, and they are available in Chinese medicine shops and dried goods stores.
