Most efficient natural way to lose weight is to speed up your metabolism. You don’t have to change the whole diet, you just should change spices that you add to your favorite meal.
At the University of Medical Sciences in Iran, scientists made research on two groups. Each group contained 44 women with overweight.
In a period of 3 months, these two groups had consultations about healthy diet. Their menu was made in order to contain less than 500 calories per day.
The difference between diets of these two groups was in cumin powder. First group of subjects during this period consumed 140 ml yogurt mixed with cumin powder. The second group also consumed 140 ml yogurt, but without the spice.
After the period of three months, the first group (that was consuming cumin powder) lost about 14 kilograms, unlike the second group.
It is interesting fact that participants in the first group lost 14,64 % more fat than the those in second group. They lost 4,91 % fat.
Cumin powder contains phytosterols. Phytosterols have ability to disable the retention of the cholesterol in human body. Also, scientists claim that cumin accelerates metabolism.
You can add this great spice not only in yogurt, but to any other meal and make it more delicious.
