When you are trying to lose some weight, hunger is not an unusual feeling. However you need to know that by combining some natural ingredients with your food, you will be able to speed up your metabolism and therefore lose some weight.
This was also proven by a study which was conducted by the scientists of the Medical Sciences University of Iran. For the purpose of this study, the participants were divided into 2 groups. Each group was consisted of 44 women. All of these women had problems with their weight.
For the next three months the women from both groups were eating healthy and they consumed less than 500 calories a day.
The only difference in their diet ware the spices. Namely the first group consumed 3 grams of powdered cumin every day. They usually mixed the cumin with 140g of yogurt. The second group on the other hand consumed the same amount of yogurt but without the cumin.
The results were unbelievable. Namely the first group, the one who consumed cumin with their yogurt, lost 14 pounds more than the group who consumed their yogurt without cumin.
What’s even more amazing is the fact that the first group lost more fat than the second group. What we are trying to say is that the first group lost 14.64 percent, and the second lost only 4.91 percent fat.
This is mainly because the cumin is rich in filosterole. At this point you need to know that the filosterole has the ability to prevent retention of cholesterol in your body. According to many scientists this is the reason why cumin can speed up your metabolism.
