Numerous experts claim that the key to losing weight is speeding up your metabolism. There are many natural ingredients that can help you, but you also have to be careful about the spices you use for cooking or preparing food. Many people think that they should be hungry if they’re trying to lose several kilograms. Luckily, if you know how to combine several natural ingredients, your metabolism will become faster, so you’ll manage to lose weight faster.
A study from the University of Iran managed to prove this. The participants in this study were divided into 2 groups. Every group had 44 women. They all wanted to lose some weight.
During the period of 3 months, these women were all told to eat healthy, with less than 500 calories a day.
They only took different spices. The first group took 3 grams of powdered cumin every day. Many of the women usually mixed their cumin with 140 g of yogurt. The second group consumed the same amount of yogurt but without taking cumin.
The results stunned everyone. The group that took cumin managed to lose even 14 pounds more than the group that didn’t consume cumin!
The first group also lost more fat than the second group e.g. the first group lost 14.64% of fat, and the second one only 4.91% of fat.
Cumin contains filosterole which is an extremely powerful compound that can prevent the retention of cholesterol in your body. Numerous scientists claim that this compound is the one that actually speeds up the metabolism.
