    There are a number of science paper documenting the anti obesity effect of ginger, along with caffeine. So is Ginger Ale a good work out food? It's logical that it is. Now you can justify eating all the tasty ginger when eating sushi. The paper references are here:

    it actually works for me. Only organic ginger ale. But of course, there is sugar in ginger ale, which is a source of energy.

    I've never had to justify eating ginger. It's delicious as part of a soup base, pickled (like the kind that comes with sushi), tea, shaved on my breakfast rice, icecream... you name it.

    If anyone has a juicer, you can make your own ginger ale! Use half a lemon, half a pound of white grapes, 3 oz ginger root and some sparkling mineral water. Drink on Ice... It's delicious and gives you that ginger kick!

    Nothing in your reference papers says ginger is good for muscle definition.

    It says it could be good for mice and rats on high fat diet, to fight off the side effects of obesity.

    The thing is, you are not a rodent, and you are not fat.

    Just enjoy your Ginger Ale

    What? at times I do is that I make my Own Ginger lemon drink , or extra ill add simply green tea

    It will be Ginger Lemon Green Tea. icon_biggrin.gif

    - just slice a chunk of fresh ginger boil it (dont over boil them), then that hot water I infuse my green tea in icon_wink.gif...later after a minute of 2 ill add on some fresh queezz lemon juice to it...and TAAA-DAH you get a "Super-Cool Antioxidant Tea 5.gif

    Well if you cant stand at all,add little honey just before you pour the hot Ginger water stir as follow all the above.

    I like it just like that without honey. ..well that was my creative-brainy-boring weekend recipe.icon_wink.gif

    I heard about this super secret for fat loss and muscle definition. It's called creating a progressive calorie deficit.

    I throw fresh ginger into my protein smoothie every morning but haven't noticed any observable fat loss. Maybe it works best in one's morning coffee...

    I drink ginger tea a lot, I love it!! and it gives me more of an appetite too so it'd probably be good if you're bulking and have to eat loads

    Mice are often used in weight studies because their mechanisms for fat storage are highly analogous to humans.

    Ginger juice is the best!, why even drink dried ginger tea.

    I wonder if the pickled ginger used in sushi would have the same benefit as fresh ginger. It's kind of altered by that point. If ginger really helps with fat control somehow, I'd vote for using fresh raw. Ginger ale has so very little ginger in it, though it is very tasty.
    And like somebody else pointed out, you aren't fat!

    I'm not criticizing the animal model, just pointing the lack of clinical (human) evidences for the thread claim (muscle definition).

    Animal testing allow to analyse in details a process, but just provide clues about toxicity and efficacity in human, which needs human studies to be validated.

    And one of the link was about ginger mouse... ginger, the color !!!
