Here in America, we are overloaded with consumer products aimed at targeting weight loss. Many were skeptical of trying out of fear that they'll just be a waste of time, money, and effort. If you're looking to lose weight naturally then you're in luck. We've compiled easy at home remedies that can assist with your journey.
1. Go to Bed Earlier
I know this is tough to do when you want to continue binging that tv show you just began, but trust me. Constant inadequate sleep will completely interfere with those hormones that regulate hunger. A worse side effect than bags under your eyes - overeating for energy boosts! Shoot for a healthy sleep schedule (7-9 hours) and make a habit of going to bed on time.
2. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is going to become one of your staples because it is a great home remedy for fighting obesity. It assists with digestion, aids in detoxification, and removes toxins from your body that can slow down your metabolism. You can easily simply pour one cup of warm water mixed with a teaspoon of lemon juice and bam!
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Although this remedy has TONS of health benefits, today we're just discussing its weight effects. Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (with the mother) will help you to reduce excess weight. It helps break down fat preventing the build-up of body fat. You can have up to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a day. Do not exceed this amount, as it can potentially reduce your blood potassium levels over time and lower your bone mineral density. Mix with water and other additions on the list for a powerful concoction.
4. Chew Gum
If you're looking to trick your brain (and your stomach) into thinking it’s getting food when it isn't - gum! Not only does the flavor of the gum reduce appetite, it also stimulates the flow of saliva, whose enzymes help break down starches and fats.
5. Snack Time
Light snacks throughout the day are a great way to curb those long stretches without food. The best way to keep your blood sugar steady would be to snack on with two healthy goodies everyday. Something simple like fruit or nuts wil do the trick.
6. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne pepper helps control obesity and aids in weight loss by stimulates digestion and suppresses excess appetite. The capsaicin that it contains stimulates your body to burn fat and increase energy. For the best mixture try two tablespoons each of lemon juice in a glass of water with a dash of cayenne pepper added.
