Top Home Remedies for Weight Loss

1. Cinnamon and Honey

Honey and cinnamon fires up your metabolism, increase your energy and also promotes body detoxification. All of these factors speed up weight loss process. Also, honey promotes fat metabolism and thus fights obesity. On the other hand, cinnamon fights insulin resistance which helps you curb your hunger cravings. It also reduces oxidative stress which is associated with metabolic syndrome, thereby promoting fat loss.

For this remedy, you just need a cup of hot water, one-half teaspoon of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey. In a cup of hot water, add one-half teaspoon of cinnamon powder and let it steep for about 30 minutes. Then, mix in honey and drink half of this mixture in the morning on an empty stomach and have breakfast after 30 minutes. Store the rest of the solution in the refrigerator and drink it at night time before going to bed.

2. Ginger and Green Tea

Green Tea is used all over the globe for weight loss. Most people have now replaced milk tea with green tea because of the numerous health benefits it has. Various studies have shown that the components in the green tea- caffeine, catechins and theanine promote fat loss.

Caffeine speeds up metabolism; catechins are antioxidant flavonoids that help in lowering the absorption of lipids (fats) via the intestinal tract. Theanine, on the other hand, is an amino acid that releases dopamine, which is a chemical that keeps the mood happy and relaxed. And when ginger is added to green tea, it improves digestion. So, this makes it one of the best natural remedies for weight loss.

Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

How to Use?

For this remedy, you will need 1/2 inch of peeled and finely chopped ginger, one teaspoon of green tea, a little bit of honey and one cup of water.

Pour a cup of warm water over green tea and ginger. Let it steep for about three to four minutes. You can mix in honey to sweeten it, but make sure not to add milk or sugar at all costs. Drink one to two cups of this mixture daily on an empty stomach.

On the top of that, it enhances the metabolism, boosts energy and also mobilises unnecessary fat in the body. So drink a glass of fresh aloe vera juice daily to burn fat and look slim and trim.


How to Use?

Take only two fresh leaves of Aloe Vera, peel them and take out their pulp. Then put it in a blender along with a cup of citrus juice, such as grapefruit juice, orange juice or you can simply put water. Keep blending for two to three months. Tadaa! Your aloe vera juice is ready! Drink this every day for at least one month to notice the difference in your weight.
