When it comes to losing weight, there are all kinds of “miracle” pills and products available, often for a hefty price tag.
Believe it or not, though, you can easily lose weight by using something in your own kitchen: honey!
Honey helps your body to burn fat more efficiently and can also eliminate addictions to sugar and caffeine by providing a healthy, antioxidant-filled burst of good sugars.
If you’re ready to start using delicious, good-for-you honey to lose weight, simply follow one or more of our tips.
Drink Your Honey
Ready for a great start to the morning and a nice influx of energy throughout the day?
If so, then simply mix one teaspoon of honey with warm water and a dash or two of lemon juice and drink it down first thing in the morning.
You’ll find that this will control your sugar and carb cravings throughout the day and give you the energy to exercise, which, by the way, you should be doing!
Enjoy Honey with Cinnamon
If you think honey is effective at helping you to lose weight, just wait until you try it mixed with cinnamon.
While honey has its own wonderful benefits, cinnamon is great at lowering blood sugar levels, which improves focus and concentration, and at reducing appetite.
Try this mixture between meals to combat cravings. You can sprinkle it on something healthy, like bran cereal, down it in a tablespoon, or mix it with water, coffee, or tea.
