One way to increase your weight loss results is by boosting your metabolism. This can easily be achieved by supplementing your diet with several natural ingredients. Best of all, you no longer need to cut off you’re the foods you relish; a simple hack like adding a metabolism-boosting spice in your favorite meal will do the trick.
When setting to lose weight, it’s important to know that starvation can do more harm than good. Therefore, it’s the least beneficial form of dieting. On the other hand, combining foods and spices properly will not only stimulate your metabolism, but also set your body into fat-burning mode.
According to a recent study conducted by the University of Medical Sciences in Iran, cumin is the most beneficial spice for healthy weight loss. The study included 44 overweight women divided in two groups. Both groups were given advice on a healthy balanced diet for three months. Otherwise, their daily menu comprised 500 calories or fewer, the only difference being that one group was asked to add cumin powder to 140ml yogurt every morning, while the second group ate only yogurt. After three months, the results showed that the cumin group lost 14kg more than the control group. In addition, the first group lost 14.64% more fat than the second, which lost only 4.91%.
The amazing weight loss benefits of cumin come down to phytosterols, chemical compounds that prevent the accumulation of cholesterol in the body, as well as the thermogenic effect of the spice, which speeds up your metabolism in a natural way.
