The Sweet Slimming Plan - Honey

Honey is one of the foods that speed up metabolism naturally. If you are trying to lose weight, honey can be of great help to you. Here's why:

1. Honey is a natural sweetener. You would have the 22 amino acids that it has and variety of other essential minerals that would make you lose weight effectively and fast. These minerals prevent obesity.

2. If you add little honey to lemon juice and take it as your breakfast or the first thing in the morning, you would spot weight loss in the shortest time. The effect that works here is referred to as the anti cellulite treatment that also increases your metabolism resulting in easy weight loss.

3. Alternatively, you can take little honey and mix with cinnamon powder and add to a cup full of boiling water and take. It will also help you lose weight fast. The combined effect of cinnamon and honey can prove you a little weight loss miracle.

4. Honey promotes better digestion. Poor digestion contributes to excess weight but you can bring all this to an end. Honey is good because the natural sugars that constitute it are easily digested.

5. When you take honey, you would be fueling your liver. This is best done at night so that when you get down to sleep you have sound sleep. Sound sleep allows for speedy fat burning and increased metabolism = easy weight loss. You would also ease your stress hormones.

Many people stop eating food to reduce their weight. Beware of such practices. If you don't eat sufficient food (which involves calories, vitamin, minerals, fibers) your immune system will become weak. Your weight loss program should focus on reducing the intake of calories and not stopping the intake of calories. Further, you should also increase the daily expense of calories by regular exercise.

Now you don't have to go on empty stomach to lose weight. Just eat honey!

I recommend Really Raw Honey, because it contains No Pesticides, is Totally Unheated and Unstrained, contains Propolis, Honeycomb and Live Enzymes, and is Straight from the hive to the jar. It tastes good too! :D
