Speeding up the metabolism is definitely the best way to lose weight. Many different natural foods can help you achieve this. But, if you want to speed up your metabolism, always pay attention to the spices you use.
A study was conducted by the scientists from the Medical Science University of Iran. They divided the participants into 2 groups. There were 88 women with excess of weight.
The women from both groups were eating healthy food for the next three months. They consumed less than 500 calories a day. The only difference in their diet was the use of spices. The first group consumed 3 grams of cumin every day. They mixed the cumin with 140 grams of yogurt and consumed it every morning on an empty stomach. The second group also consumed yogurt but without cumin.
The results of the first group were amazing. The first group of women even lost 14 pounds more than the second group after a period of only 1 month! They lost 14.64 % fat and the second one only 4.91 % fat.
Cumin possesses amazing properties. It is high in filosterole, which is able to prevent the retention of cholesterol in our body. That is the main reason why cumin can speed up metabolism and help us lose extra weight.
