cumin powderStarvation is never the best choice when you want to lose weight. Kilograms are easy to melt away when you combine foods when using natural ingredients that boost metabolism.
Scientists from the University of Medical Sciences in Iran have formed two groups, each consisting of 44 women who have problems with excess weight. During the 3 months the women of both groups were advised about healthy eating and they consumed 500 calories less per day.
The first group of subjects ate 3 grams of cumin powder a day, mixed with 140 g yoghurt. Another group of women consumed the same amount of yogurt without the addition of cumin.
After three months, members of the group who had drunk yogurt with added cumin have lost about 14 pounds compared to women who drank plain yogurt. The research is even more impressive when one considers the fact that the participants in the first group lost 14.64 percent more fat than those from the other group who have lost 4.91 percent of fat.
What matters is the reason why the respondents were losing weight is that this spice contains filosterole, plant chemical known for preventing retention of cholesterol in the body. Scientists believe that this is because cumin speeds up the metabolism.
