Yes your weight is increasing and your BMI is also more than 25. Suggestions: 1.Reduce Salt Intake: More salt in body means more sodium which gives a puffy look to your body. So, it’s advised to eat less salt and more potassium as it will reduce the amount of water in the body resulting in reduced weight. 2. Never Skip Exercise: Exercise daily because this is one sure-shot way of reducing weight because it burns direct fat. Especially cardio exercises can help in reducing weight but you have to be regular in that. 3. Manage Your Diet Well: Diet management is the first and foremost thing that can help you deal with the problem of obesity. It is not easy and everyone’s cup of tea to have a control on diet but half the battle is won, if you can deal with this dietary change. Your diet should be low in calories, with less carbohydrates and less fats. 4. Have Mint Leaves: Taking mint leaves in warm water half an hour after taking meals will prove to be beneficial in losing weight as it helps in proper digestion and boosting metabolism. 5. Drink Green Tea: Green tea, an antioxidant by nature can go a long way in helping you reduce weight. So, prefer taking green tea, if not more once or twice a day. 6. Switch To Lukewarm Water: Drinking lukewarm water every time you are thirsty will reduce fat deposits in your body, so you must go for it. 7. Make Homemade Food: Prefer eating homemade food and avoid fatty and fast food. 8consult through audio video.

Your daily calorie needs are about 1700 calories to maintain weight. If you want to reduce weight you should plan about one kg a month less. For that your daily calories intake should be about 1400 calories. This way you can reduce about 8-10 kgs in 10 months.

1. Caffeine free

The fact that peppermint tea does not contain caffeine may be a boon or a bane.

If you want to enjoy a cup of tea that won’t add to your caffeine content, peppermint tea is a good choice as is any other herbal tea.

But if you need a tea that keeps you awake at night, you need to go for your traditional cup of tea or coffee. In fact, peppermint tea has a soothing effect and is said to be good for a good night’s sleep.

2. Relieves gas and bloating

If you are suffering from gastric problems, you should immediately add a pack of peppermint tea to your kitchen shelf.

Peppermint tea removes gassiness and relaxes muscles, thus facilitating the movement of gas curing flatulence problems.

3. Reduces heartburn and indigestion

The ability of peppermint to relax muscles also improves the flow of bile juice in the stomach, thus improving digestion.

It acts like acid reflux and thus can cure indigestion.


4. Nausea and vomiting

As already mentioned above, it makes you feel comfortable at night and thus help fight morning sickness. Morning sickness is common among pregnant women.

Peppermint tea is antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory in nature. It relaxes muscles and thus reduces instances of vomiting and nausea.

5. Respiratory issues

As an antispasmodic, it also relieves you from that irritating sensation that makes you want to cough, thereby improving your respiratory condition by relaxing the muscles of the throat and chest, it can eliminate that aspect of cold and flu symptoms.

Peppermint tea is said to be a natural decongestant. It can also help in providing sinus relief.

The season of constant colds and flu has begun, so let peppermint tea become part of your evening routine.

6. Immune system

Bacteria are the cause innumerable diseases which include fever, cough and cold and the worst part is that unknowingly we are exposed to millions of them. Be it in the air, water or the food we intake.

But don’t you worry. Peppermint tea will come to your rescue as it is said to have anti-bacterial properties. It builds immunity against a variety of illnesses.

It is a mild source of vitamin b, potassium, calcium.

7. Bad breath

While peppermint tea being anti-bacterial kills the bad odour causing germs, the strong mentholated flavour represses the foul smell leaving your breath fresh and clean.

8. Weight loss

Peppermint tea can help you shed kilos. It may sound unbelievable, but the aroma of peppermint and some of its organic compounds can help you cut on your diet and subsequently obesity.

9. Curbing stress

The new talk of the town is “stress”. It is an indispensable part of the busy and ambitious lives we live these days. In fact, a certain level of stress is required to keep you going. But when stress starts interfering with your lives in a negative way, something somewhere has gone gravely wrong and needs to be paid attention.

Peppermint is an excellent stress buster especially because of the menthol it possesses. Being anti-inflammatory, it reduces blood pressure and body temperature which are the consequences of stress and thus allows you to relax.
