We all know that the weight loss process is extremely hard and difficult process. But, what if we tell you that you can lose weight just by adding this super healthy spice in your healthy diet. And if you add this spice in your diet, it will boost the weight loss process by 3 times. It will help you lose up to 30 lbs. in just one month. Sounds great, right?! This spice will improve your health, prevent obesity and heart diseases. We are talking about the amazing spice cumin. Cumin is usually grounded and then add in curry powder. Or, the manufacturers add it in chili-powders and it’s used in different cuisines around the globe. Cumin is a powerful seed that can be used to treat indigestion, anemia, acid reflux, diabetes, constipation and much more. Also, this spice can help you lose weight.
Here’s what you need to know – a group of experts at Iran’s Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences randomly split 88 overweight or obese women into 2 groups. For 3 months, both groups received nutrition counseling and decreased their daily intake of calories by 500. But one group was also eating 3 grams (a little less than 1 teaspoon) of cumin powder daily, swirled into 5 ounces of yogurt (the same amount of yogurt, minus the cumin, was also prescribed to the control group).
Well, at the end of the 3-month trial, members in the cumin group had lost 3 more pounds than those in the non-cumin group for a total of 13 pounds’ weight loss. More impressively, the cumin group members decreased body fat percentage by 15%—almost triple the 5% loss posted by the control group—apparently due to the addition of the fat-burning spice.
