Losing weight is tough enough, but around the holiday season it seems darn near impossible.
With so many goodies and treats around, it can really be hard to be good. And, even though New Year’s resolutions are generally for weight loss, we all want to look as good as we can as we end 2017.
Thankfully, there’s a Christmas spice that specifically works with your body to promote weight loss: cinnamon.
This incredible spice helps boost your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories throughout the day.
Not to mention, this holiday spice is rich in iron, fiber, manganese and calcium. This helps it increase your body’s insulin levels and decrease fat storage levels.
However, cinnamon has many more benefits – for example, it has the power to:
- Reduce fasting blood glucose (simple sugar found in carbs)
- Lower triglycerides (fat storage)
- Reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol
- Lower total cholesterol
Cinnamon also has the astounding ability to prevent the transformation of sugar into fat. It also helps delay food from passing from your stomach into your intestine. This ensures you feel full for longer periods of time.
Cinnamon is a powerful spice your body will love. However, you’ll need to consume it every day to see results.
One of the best ways to get your daily dose of cinnamon is to combine it with boiling water and honey to make a tea.
You can also add a teaspoon of lemon juice, or sprinkle cinnamon into your favorite green tea.
You can also add cinnamon to your regular cup of coffee, to your oatmeal or breakfast cereal, to your butter or yogurt for a flavor boost, and to your fruit juices and ciders this season.
