3 Spices For Weight Loss

3 Spices That Will Help You Lose Weight Quickly!

Are you struggling to lose those extra pounds? Do you want to lose weight naturally and quickly without starving yourself? I know its hard to even think of starving yourself or spending too much time exercising (but you must exercise at least 2-3 times a week for at least 30 min each time no matter what you eat or drink to stay fit) to shed those extra pounds. I am not a believer in crash diets and would rather stick to a healthy diet with some secret herbs and spices to boost my metabolism so I don’t end up gaining too much weight. Here are 3 Spices that will help you lose weight quickly, safely and naturally.

1. Cayenne Pepper:

Love Tabasco? If you love hot and spicy food then you are in for some good news 🙂

Yes, Cayenne Pepper tops the list because it can speed up your metabolism by as much as 25 percent. The Secret? Capsaicin! Cayenne Pepper Contains capsaicin what gives peppers its spicy flavor,helps boost your body’s metabolism and promotes weight loss. It also flushes out harmful toxins from your body and is a wonderful cleanser.

Recipe For a Lemon Cayenne Detox Drink:

If you want to make it a part of your daily life you can use this recipe or if you can just add more Cayenne Pepper to your curries, soups and enjoy that bottle of Tabasco 🙂

Take 1/2 Tsp of Cayenne Pepper, juice of 1 Lemon and a Glass of Hot Water. Mix them together and drink. No its not gonna be tasty and you might take some time to get used to it but its a small price for the big benefit 🙂 You can add some sweetener like honey if you want it sweet.

2. Mustard:

Mustard is another spice that can help you burn off some fats. Mustard has been used to speed up metabolism and  to improve the function of digestive system. Chemical ‘isothiocyanates’ found in mustard is what boosts metabolism(which dilate blood vessels and increase levels of the fat-burning hormone ephedrine). Mustard seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, calcium, zinc, manganese, magnesium, protein, niacin and dietary fiber. Make Mustard a part of your diet to see a significant result. Ditch your Mayo, ketch Up and other Dips and enjoy your Mustard, you won’t regret!

3. Cinnamon:

Cinnamon must be one of the sweetest ways to lose weight. I love Cinnamon Tea and I am sure most of you wouldn’t mind drinking a cup of Cinnamon Tea for weight loss. Cinnamon is a wonderful spice that has lots of health benefits. Did you know Cinnamon was a Fertility Spice? Yes, drinking a cup of Cinnamon tea everyday for a month can significantly increase your chances of conception.

Cinnamon also boosts your metabolism and helps you lose weight. Make sure you use Cinnamon and not Cassia which has a very high level of Coumarin and you wouldn’t want to ingest too much of Coumarin. Go for Ceylon Cinnamon which has the lowest level of Coumarin.

How to make Cinnamon Tea For Weight Loss?

Take a glass of water and bring it to boil. Drop a few pieces of Cinnamon sticks and let it boil for 5 minutes. Strain and add some sweetener if you want it sweet. Drink it hot and see how it tingles all your senses and freshens you up immediately.

Note: DO NOT take Cinnamon if you are taking Diabetes or PCOS  medications (like Metformin) because Cinnamon can quickly lower your Blood Sugar level.

Mustard and Cinnamon should NOT be taken by Pregnant Women in large quantity.
