Gym memberships and personal trainers can be very expensive these days, making it difficult for most people to get started or continue exercising and losing weight.
If you are looking for free information on home remedies for weight loss, you have come to the right place!
Here are the top 6 home remedies for obesity:
Lemon juice is one of the best home remedies for fighting obesity. It helps improve digestion and aids in detoxification. Healthy digestion is an essential pre-requisite for weight loss as it helps your body get the nutrients required to burn fat. Furthermore, it helps remove toxins from your body that slow down your metabolism.
~ Mix three teaspoons of lemon juice, one teaspoon of honey, and one-half teaspoon of black pepper powder in one glass of water. (If you use freshly ground black pepper, then just add one-quarter teaspoon.)~ Drink it in the morning on an empty stomach.~ Do this daily for at least three months.
Alternatively, you can simply have a cup of warm water mixed with a teaspoon of lemon juice.
Apple Cider Vinegar
About a half an hour before you plan to have a meal, drink one tablespoon of straight organic apple cider vinegar.
How does vinegar help you slim down? Regularly following this regimen helps burn fat as it enters your body so you stay trimmer. It also helps to keep your appetite in check. Studies on people who take a shot of ACV before meals consistently show that participants eat about 30% less that they normally would.
Blood sugar has a direct impact on your weight as it affects how hungry and how energetic you are (if you have energy you’re much more likely to exercise!) If your blood sugar is balanced you are less likely to have a disproportionally large appetite, and your body will be more apt to use fat (energy) rather than storing it. While debate about its effectiveness drags on, more and more preliminary studies are coming out showing that cinnamon can help manage blood sugar levels, so why not whip up a spicy cinnamon tea?You will need…~ 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon~ 1 cinnamon stick~ 8 ounces of fresh water
Directions~ Place the cinnamon in a mug and cover with 8 ounces of boiling water. Steep for 15 minutes before straining. Drinking 1-2 times a day.
Aloe vera is useful in treating obesity because it stimulates the metabolism, increases energy consumption, and mobilizes unused fat in the body. It contains natural collagen proteins that make the body work harder in order to absorb the proteins. In addition, it helps remove toxins from the digestive system and colon.
~ Take two fresh aloe vera leaves, peel them, and scoop out the pulp.
~ Put it in a blender along with one cup of citrus juice, such as orange or grapefruit juice, or simply water. Blend it for two to three minutes.
~ Drink this daily for at least a month.
Eat Spicy Peppers
One of the easiest home remedies for weight loss is adding spicy peppers into your normal diet. Did you know that the capsaicin in peppers speeds up your metabolism? Capsaicin is the natural ingredient that makes peppers spicey, and many studies have found that it can increase your weight loss quite a bit. Add it to stir fry or almost any vegetable dish for an instant kick!
Green Tea & Ginger
Green tea has long been debated as a weight loss aid, and more research is needed to confirm or deny how well it works. While some studies have turned up nothing, others have identified three main components in green tea that could help manage weight-caffeine, catechins, and theanine. Caffeine is just an overall boost to your system, and speeds up a number of bodily processes, including metabolism related to weight (technically speaking, metabolism refers to any and all biological processes in a living organism needed to sustain life.)
You will need…~ 1/2 inch of fresh ginger root, peeled and finely chopped OR ½ teaspoon ground ginger~ 1 teaspoon of green tea~ 8 ounces of fresh water~ Raw, organic honey (optional)
Directions~ Place green tea and ginger in a strainer or sieve and cover with 8 ounces of boiling water. Steeping green tea for too long can leave it with a bitter taste, so don’t exceed 3-4 minutes. You can stir in a little raw honey if you really need to sweeten it, but avoid milk or sugar at all costs. Drink 1-2 cups daily on an empty stomach.
