Lose weight with a simple homemade drink
In today's society being overweight is not only often viewed as unattractive but it is also associated with a number of health problems including diabetes or heart disease. The goals most people have in mind when losing weight is to feel better about their bodies and to maintain or improve their health.
But losing weight is often easier said than done. Not only does it involve changing eating habits, but more often than not it also means transforming an entire lifestyle. This is especially the case when you've eaten too much because of emotional or mental problems. It certainly takes a lot more effort to overcome these sorts of obstacles. It also takes enormous willpower to turn down cake at office parties or candy at a friend's place.
Diets initially seem like a good idea for many overweight people because they promise a great deal of weight loss in a short period of time and they don't go on forever. But the truth is, they are not that successful in most cases. On the contrary, at the end of the diet, most people often end up weighing more than they did in the beginning. This is referred to as the yo-yo effect. But you need not despair. It really doesn't take as much effort as you'd think to get results quickly and that's without needing to starve yourself or go to the gym.
With this drink, you'll easily burn off calories without having to lift a finger.
- 1 cup of water
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Mix all the ingredients together and drink half the drink before going to sleep and the rest the next morning on an empty stomach.
In just seven days you'll be laughing all the way to the scales when you realize you've lost up to 5.5 lbs.
How is that even possible?
This drink drastically accelerates the fat burning process by significantly speeding up your metabolism. The key ingredient responsible for this is cinnamon. Cinnamon contains a molecule which promotes heat production in your body. In order to restore normal body temperatures, your metabolism is then put into overdrive mode. What's more, cinnamon also dampens your appetite, so you eat less throughout the day. If that's not enough, cinnamon also lowers blood sugar levels. This in turn increases insulin production in the pancreas, so that fat cells can be broken down — amazing that one single spice does all that!
Some studies have also shown that the mere scent of cinnamon already lowers your appetite for candy. Honey is another important component of the beverage. It contains a lot of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. In addition, it is absorbed and metabolized much slower than conventional sugars.
Coconut oil is a fat, but it's of the healthy kind. The key to achieving the slimming effect are medium-chain fatty acids. These travel directly from the digestive tract into the liver where they are used for energy supply or converted into ketone bodies. Coconut oil stimulates metabolism and fat burning.
If you want to lose weight, you should definitely try this drink. If you prefer, you can simply mix the ingredients into your morning coffee. Not only does it add a touch of sweetness, but you'll also be stimulating fat burning activity by doing so. Coffee is already commonly known for its influence on metabolic rates and it's a natural appetite suppressant for those wanting to lose weight. In any case, to achieve and maintain long-term weight reduction and a healthy lifestyle, your diet should also consist of lots of fruits and vegetables as well as sufficient exercise.
