Benefits of Honey in Weight Loss

 

The benefits of honey can be seen in your weight lossprogram as well. If you are trying to lose weight, honey can be of great helpto you. But before we move on to the benefits of honey in weight loss we shouldaddress the concerns people have regarding honey.

Many people ask: Isn't honey a type of sugar? Does it notadd any weight? Won't the calories in honey negate your weight loss efforts?

You are right - honeycontains sugar. But unlike refined sugar, honey contains vitamins andminerals too. Normally, to digest sugar, the vitamins and minerals stored inbody are utilized, rendering the body devoid of these nutrients. Thesenutrients are essential to dissolve fats and cholesterol. Thus when you eat toomuch sugar you tend to increase weight not just because of the calories but dueto lack of vitamins and minerals. On the contrary, honey being a good source ofnutrients helps you in reducing weight.

Honey and warm water:Normally fat remains as an un-used resource in your body adding bulk and weight.It is believed that honey mobilizes this stored fat. When this fat is burnt toprovide energy for your daily activities, you see a gradual decrease in yourweight and obesity levels. It is suggested that you drink this honey (about onetablespoon daily), with equal amount of warm water.

Honey and lemonjuice: Honey can also help in weight loss when consumed with warm water andlemon juice. Many people drink this formula first thing in the morning toreduce their weight.

Honey and cinnamon:Another useful recipe is cinnamon powder with honey and warm water. Take onetablespoon of cinnamon power, one tablespoon of honey and one cup of warmwater, mix the ingredients properly and drink this mixture empty stomach. It isnot clear how this mixture helps in weight loss; however, many people claim tohave derived benefits from its regular consumption.

Honey also improves your digestion and thus helps in weightloss. Hence honey is also consumed after dinner especially after overeating.

Finally, many people stop eating food to reduce theirweight. Beware of such practices. If you don't eat sufficient food (whichinvolves calories, vitamin, minerals, fibers) your immune system will becomeweak. Your weight loss program should focus on reducing the intake of caloriesand not stopping the intake of calories. Further, you should also increase thedaily expense of calories by regular exercise.
