Honey can be very useful when you’re trying to lose weight. Weight loss is one of the main benefits of honey! If you’re overweight, honey not only helps you reduce weight but also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disorders.
Alright, hold on for us, in light of the fact that we couldn’t trust it when we heard it either. Be that as it may, as indicated by new research, you could drop as much as a dress size in 3 weeks just by eating a spoonful of honey before bed each night!
By what means can something that is sweet and sugary help towards getting in shape, we hear you cry? Won’t the calories in honey counter your efforts towards weight loss? Indeed, as per author and nutritionist Mike McInnes, it’s all down to the metabolic force of honey. He’s found that honey triggers changes to the digestion system that guarantees you won’t succumb to those troublesome sugar yearnings we all fall foul of and it even blazes fat while you rest!
Sounds pipe dream, isn’t that right?
How Can You Use Honey for Weight Loss?
Disregard starving yourself and costly wellbeing nourishments – take after these straightforward principles and you could lose a few kgs in a week! Why not stick them on your refrigerator to offer you some assistance with remembering?
Supplant Sugar with Honey
Cut out all sugar, including sweeteners, by using honey as an alternative. Start your day with honey in hot water, replace sugar with honey in tea and coffee, on cereal, and in all your cooking throughout the day.
How will this help, we hear you ask? Let us help you understand better. Normal table sugar which is present in all of our houses contains calories which benefit you in absolutely no way. These calories, which give you very little or no nutrition are known as “empty calories”. Your body uses up essential nutrients just to dissolve this unnecessary fat. Because most of our important nutrients and vitamins get used up here, we tend to gain weight while ingesting either pure sugar or sugar in other forms. This is exactly why honey, being a good source of nutrients, when substituted for sugar helps in reducing weight.
Pick Unrefined Carbs
The refined white flour found in white pasta and white rice can cause blood sugar spikes. Whole meal bread, pasta and brown rice are fiber-rich, so they are good for your digestion, take longer for your body to process and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Make sure that the whole meal carbs make up less than a quarter of your meal, and fill your plate with protein and vegetables.
Protein, protein, protein
By making sure you have protein in every meal, you will feel fuller for longer and avoid blood sugar spikes leading to cravings. Try to keep protein as lean as possible to keep the calories down, such as fish (not breaded or battered), chicken (no skin), pork (fat trimmed), beef (steak or 5% fat mince) or eggs.
