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.

Fennel seeds are considered quite useful for relieving various ailments, ranging from congestion and stomach gas to asthma and diabetes.Fennel seed symbolizes longevity, courage, and strength. In addition to its use as medicinal values, fennel indeed has health benefiting nutrients.

This daily trick can help you detoxify, improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels

You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.

All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels.

If I could tell you ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?
Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!
Here’s the trick…
Immediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an 8 oz glass of warm or room temperature purified water.  This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water.  I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves.
Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.
Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink, and not bottled lemon juice.  You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.

According to a leading health publication, TheAlternativeDaily.com:

“The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser.
Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood.  Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints.
This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

Benefits that you can enjoy:
1. Improves your digestion:
Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion.

2. Boosts your energy for the day:
Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels, and reduce anxiety.  Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.

3. Helps you to lose fat:
Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance… Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily morning routine!
That’s a pretty simple trick, right?
