Angelina's secret weight loss tea?

Angelina's secret weight loss tea?

It was reported that Angelina used African Ginger Root, Garlic Tea and Yoga to lose some extra pounds after giving birth.

To find out if Ginger Root, Garlic and Yoga are the answer to all your weight loss dreams,

The evidence is not convincing that Ginger and Garlic would have any weight loss benefits aside from the fact that Ginger is mildly known to promote appetite loss.

So while Yoga certainly is a great way to get back into shape post baby, Ginger and Garlic when used for a method of weight loss, probably are not (and probably weren't used by Angelina for that reason). Don't shy away from them though, Ginger and Garlic are great for you.

Here is why:

Ginger: Known for helping settle indigestion and upset stomachs. Which is why you drink 'ginger ale' when feeling icky. Ginger is also great for motion sickness and is being studied for possible effectiveness against cholesterol.

Garlic: In any form, even tea, can fight a common cold and cough and could also be effective in the fight against cholesterol.

Seems that maybe Angelina was just feeling a little under the weather and couldn't get her hands on a can of ginger ale during her stay in Namibia.

Fit's take on it all in this case of weight loss--Stick to yoga.
