Slimming diet & method are a dime a dozen. Most are quite confusing & arduous to follow. Slimming is big business. There isn’t a single day that goes by without commercials on how to slim.
I highly recommend it knowing this fennel drink which is simple to make. You can sip it every day and enjoy its slimming effects. This is a very old remedy that helps weight loss, originating in India, and it works remarkably well.
All you need to do is take a glass jar, put 2 table spoons of fennel seeds in it and fill it up with a litre of filtered water. Close the lid of the jar and let it sit for the night. In the beginning you’ll see the seeds float, but by morning they will have sunk to the bottom.
Although this drink helps with weight loss, drinking more of it will not make the process any quicker. Like everything else in life, this drink should be taken in moderation. Follow the instructions and make a daily batch with 1 litre of water, sipping it throughout the day.
In addition, fennel seeds contain potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and Vitamins A and C, they also offer a variety of health benefits that aid our weight loss:
1. Accelerates metabolism: Our metabolism is the rate in which our cells use the energy we gained from the food we eat. By boosting and accelerating this process, the calories we consume are used by our cells more rapidly, which both gives us energy and helps us burn fat from our body.
2. Suppresses hunger: The fennel seed water prevent muscle contraction, which helps with our hunger pangs by relaxing the stomach muscles, and so we feel less hungry.
3. Purifies the blood: Fennel seed water help dump the remnants of urine acid in the blood, and in addition, break down stomach acids to prevent the accumulation of additional fat in the liver.
4. Helps with toxin clean-up: In today’s world, we are beset by toxins at every corner: Car exhaust fumes, cosmetics, polluted water and meat. Fennel seed water help wash the body, purifying it from these toxins and removing them through the kidneys.
5. Encourages the production of melatonin: Melatonin is the hormone responsible for our sleep cycles. A good night’s sleep is between 6 and 9 hours, and is essential for good health and the appropriate body weight. Drinking fennel seed water helps make sure that the melatonin levels in our body work in our favor and prevent insomnia. Note: This doesn’t mean the drink will make you sleep, quite the opposite: During the day you will feel like you have extra energy, but you will notice it is easier to fall asleep come bed time.
A few tips: It is recommended to use filtered water, the cleanest you can drink. To add aroma to the beverage, you can roast the fennel seeds on a pan until they release their sweet scent (about 20 seconds). It’s recommended one starts with a small amount (about half what appears in the recipe). If you like the drink and feel like you’ve finally found your method for losing weight, continue drinking it every day.
It is herbal & guaranteed to have no side effects.
Please note that besides slimming there are other amazing benefits with fennel seeds.
