How to Lose Weight Plan-The Link Between Spices and Weight Loss

Something most dieters just dread is giving up those filling, rich foods full of fats and sugar for a diet bereft of calorie-laden, yet satisfying fats and sugar. What’s the solution to making eating an enjoyable experience? Try spices. Not only do they favor foods, many of them also boost the metabolism and speed weight loss. Something that those missing fats and sugar certainly didn’t do!

Ready to drop the extra 10 or 20 pounds?Then your weight loss plan should include spices! Spice up your food and rev up your metabolism! Just imagine foods that are not only delicious but help you burn that belly fat faster than you thought possible. We’ll take a look at just a few of the many spices that increase the metabolic rate, helping the body burn calories and fat faster.

The amazing thing about herbs and spices is their ability to promote health and wellbeing along with weight control. Not only will weight loss be easier, but almost every body system benefits from eating a diet full of tasty herbs and spices. Many have the tendency to suppress the appetite due to their strong flavors and smells. Some act directly on the brain to lessen feelings of hunger. Each of these herbs is a boon to any weight loss diet!

Cayenne is made from spicy hot peppers, loved by cultures around the world. Could it be the reason so many are slim and trim where peppers are abundant? Heart disease is lower in these areas too. Use cayenne to season soups, stews, tomato sauces, and sprinkle pepper flakes on salads, sandwiches, or just about anything. Cayenne speeds up the metabolism, keeps you from being sluggish, and helps you burn those calories.

Turmeric is a traditional spice in Indian foods. Bright yellow in color, it has many health benefits beyond boosting the metabolism. Turmeric aids digestion, lowers cholesterol, and reduces inflammation in the body. It may even prevent cancer.

Garlic is an incredible herb, a delicious seasoning that has been used medicinally for millennia. Good for the circulation, digestion, and fighting infections, garlic reduces fat absorption in the intestines and suppresses the appetite. Liberally use garlic on salads, casseroles, sandwiches, and almost anything. Fresh or dried, garlic keeps you healthy and slim!

Ginger is another spice that reduces the amount of fat absorbed in the intestine. It too has been used for thousands of years as a culinary spice and medicine. Perfect for relieving indigestion and nausea, it warms the body, speeds metabolism, and tastes wonderful.

Cumin is a favorite throughout the Middle East for flavoring foods and for relieving poor digestion. It stops gas and bloating, stimulating digestion so the food doesn’t just sit there. Research shows that cumin boosts the metabolic rate so experiment with this interesting spice.

Cinnamon is another warming spice that revs up the metabolism, helping burn those calories faster! It’s a great addition to hot tea and many baked goods. It’s even in award-winning chili recipes.

For maximum weight loss results, drink unsweetened, brewed green tea before and during meals. Green tea is a proven metabolism booster and has an abundance of health benefits. Be bold with spices; flavor your food for enjoyment, health, and faster weight loss!
