A public health Nurse and weight management expert, Mrs Gbemisola Adeyefa, at the University College Hospital, (UCH), Ibadan, says a good special water diet can actually prevent or reduce pot belly.
Mrs. Gbemisola said in Ibadan on Tuesday June 10th, that an average person actually needs up to about eight glasses of water a day.
She also said drinking of water and eating watery foods like water melon and greens as well as vegetables have a lot of health benefits.
“To prevent pot belly, I will advise people to follow the water diet recipe which is used all over the world.
“We need to add freshly grated ginger, medium-sized cucumber, thinly sized lemon into two litres of water.
“Combine all ingredients into a large plastic can and allow the flavours to blend overnight in the refrigerator. Drink the entire water by the end of each day,” she
Mrs. Adeyefa said that if this was done daily and consistently, belly fat would be reduce drastically.
She enjoined Nigerians to also pay special attention to their intake of fattening foods,saying this may not make the water diet and therapy to be more effective.
Hope this will help a lot of Nigerians that have pot belly or big tommy, just give it a try,
