Sometimes it becomes impossible to resist our favourite foods, especially during the festive and wedding season. But it must also be known that excessive consumption of fried, salty and spicy foods can lead to bloating, gas and uneasiness. If you often find yourself looking for home remedies for the same, we’ve got you covered.

Chef Meghna Kamdar shared an easy, tried and tested Japanese ‘gharelu nuska’ that she found to be “working on my body”.

“An idea I picked from my Japan travel days; this is their ‘gharelu nuska’ which I found to be working on my body. No side effects, very little efforts,” she shared in an Instagram post.

As per Kamdar, all one needs to do is boil ginger pieces and lemon slices in water and consume the concoction to get rid of bloating, and even excess weight.

“Two ingredients can help you lose all that festival food fat. It will help reduce stubborn fat from body,” she mentioned.

How to make the concoction?


1-2 – Lemons
Small – Ginger
1.5l- Water


*Slice ginger and lemon (deseeded). Boil them in water until the juices get extracted.
*Once done, switch off the flame and let the mixture cool down.
*Now strain the water in a container and store. Put back the boiled ginger and lemon slices into the detox mixture so that they remain soaked.

“Fill the concoction in a bottle and drink it all day. You will see the benefits in few days. But make sure you do regular exercise and diet control at the same time,” she mentioned.


*It is said to activate metabolism and eliminate toxins from the body.
*Helps curb hunger pangs.
*Also helps cleanse the intestines, which in turn aids weight loss.

However, regular physical activity including one hour of walking daily, along with balanced meals is necessary to further weight loss goals.
