This one drink can help you drop those extra kilos! #lehengaworthywaist #gogreen

Ever heard of green coffee, the new way to drop some extra pounds?
Yes, that’s right. Ditch your regular cappuccino for green coffee.

What is Green Coffee?

Green Coffee is basically unroasted coffee beans.
Coffee beans are naturally green before they are roasted and sold to customers. The roasting causes them to turn dark brown. Green coffee is all natural and non-roasted.

What is Green Coffee?
 

How does it work?

Coffee contains two important compounds: Caffeine and Chlorogenic Acid.
Chlorogenic acid is believed to aid weight loss by slowing the release of glucose into the body.
The reason this doesn’t happen with roasted/regular coffee beans is because most of the chlorogenic acid is lost after roasting.

How does it work?
 

Uses of Chlorogenic Acid:
> Boosts metabolism
> Lowers sugar levels, which in turn aids type 2 diabetes.
> Slows down appearance of ageing. As it is not roasted, it maintains high levels of compounds that delay signs of ageing.

 

Green Coffee Extract:

Green Coffee Extract:

It can be consumed in the form of capsules as well. The extract is made mainly with chlorogenic acid. It also does contain some caffeine.
Though, they are price a little steeply.

Warning:

Green coffee must not be consumed by pregnant/breast-feeding women or children.
It also has its fair share of side effects such as:
> Anxiety / rapid heartbeat due to caffeine.
> Chlorogenic acid may also cause diarrhoea / nausea as it may have a laxative effect.

We suggest you consult someone before adding these to your daily routine.

Mamik & Nikhita Goa : This Extravagant Wedding In Goa Will Make You Wish You Were There !

Just when we thought we had seen it all, Nikhita and Mamik bowled us over with their quirky, fun and extravagant destination wedding in Goa. The duo knew that they wanted their wedding to be a fun affair where their loved ones would enjoy to the fullest. To break the ice, they started with a friendly cricket match between the two sides, which was fun to say the least. This was followed by a sangeet party where their families put up fabulous performances and the love birds exchanged rings. Next up was the sundown party in a garden by the sea which progressed into a rain dance party by the end of the day. On the morning of the wedding, the wedding party was treated to a nautical themed 'sparty' which had a huge game of jenga. The wedding was initiated in the afternoon when the bride made the entry on a vintage car and stole our hearts. The gorgeous wedding was held against the backdrop of the Arabian Sea and the night ended with a lavish reception, replete with tear-jerking stories and happy memories. Oodles of fun, vibrant colours, plenty of smiles and hearts full of love – Nikhita and Mamik's Goa wedding is one you just cannot miss!

Aditya & Sadhvi Karnal : Hindu Wedding At Noor Mahal, Karnal That Will Put More Than A Smile On Your Face!

Weddings are not just ceremonial rituals but a number of memorable events that make a wedding what it is.
Sadhvi and Aditya are a couple who chose their path of love first and then thought to sanction it with a seal of marriage. Unlike sequential shoots and series, their jovialness and enthusiasm to encapsulate their love took their brilliant photographer to rides and rounds of adventures. From exotic decor and destination of Noor Mahal to the quirkiness of their coordinated dresses, there were colours, charms and cuteness overloaded throughout the days they celebrated their grand unison.
The wedding, as Naman Verma’s frames so wonderfully present, were filled with frolic and fantastic elements.

Sadhvi and Aditya- A couple who did set goals for the generation!
