Weight Loss is a multi-billion dollar industry, and every online marketer these days owns a weight loss blog, promoting a weight loss product /system making a living. They promote fad Diets, detox, weight loss pills and systems to those desperate people who want a quick fix for their single major problem ‘OBESITTY’.
More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese.
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.
In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.
Home Remedy for Obesity – Natural Weight Loss:
Everyone speaks about limiting calorie intake, however calorie is just a unit of heat. It is illogical to decide your diet based on calories; for instance 100 calories from glucose is not the same as 100 calories from oat bran (while oat bran will help in weight loss, a simple sugar will increase your weight). Calorie needs of two different people will always be different, so one should never decide his food intake purely based on the calories to control obesity.
Don’t address the symptom – Address the Cause:
Abnormal weight gain is just the symptom, it is not the disease. The actual issue is the metabolism, when the body’s metabolism is sound one need not worry about the calories consumed (as long as the food is healthy). The fat and sugar metabolism is the key in controlling weight gain. However for those who are already obese, it is important to dissolve the fat and burn it from the adipose tissue (where the fat is stored).
There are several Ayurvedic remedies for natural weight loss, however a simple, affordable home remedy is based on fennel seeds.
All you need is
- Fennel Seeds
- Uncooked, unrefined organic honey
Add 2 cups of boiling water to 5 tea spoons of fennel seeds. Leave it for 10-15 minutes. The essential oils from fennel will be extracted and you will be able to see the water changing its color. Once the extract becomes lukewarm, add 1 table spoon honey and juice extracted from one lemon. Drink this in an empty stomach. Practice this for 30 days and your metabolism will reach a healthy level and you will lose those stubborn extra pounds. Fennel is very special in dealing with weight loss, it works as an appetite suppressant, a metabolism booster and it promotes fat deposit break-up. It breaks the fat deposits in the adipose tissue and helps in releasing fats into the blood to be used as energy. It works on all three levels and hence results in a very effective treatment.
90% of the weight loss pills today are basically appetite suppressants (with lot of side effects), however this method is very healthy, natural and more effective than conventional pills and treatments. It will be very cost effective too and will provide a permanent cure unlike the diet pills and fad diets.
There are numerous other health benefits too, fennel improves the digestive system, controls flatulence, detoxifies the liver and aids in the functioning of pancreas.
This method will be more effective with regular physical activity (or Yoga). Psyllium husk is another food supplement which is extremely good for weight loss. It is one of the best natural appetite suppressants available to mankind. Having psyllium husk 30 minutes before a meal will provide excellent results [Learn more about Psyllium husk].
Note: Don’t opt for this method if you have a weak liver or other liver related diseases.
