There are a multitude of weight loss powders and potions on the market today, some more reputable than others, and nearly all of them less than tasty. Which is why it’s nothing short of a miracle when a recipe consisting of three of the most delicious ingredients in the world gathers praise in the wellness community for amazing weight loss results. Health and fitness gurus are promoting a mixture of raw honey, coconut oil, and cinnamon that can be added to your morning coffee to create powerful weight loss drink.
The recipe is simple:
*1 teaspoon of cinnamon
*3/4 cup of coconut oil
*1/2 cup of raw honey
Mix all of the ingredients together and store in the fridge until ready for use. Stir 1-2 teaspoons into your cup of coffee or tea and enjoy.
The honey/cinnamon/coconut oil concoction works to accelerate your metabolism, burn calories, and help get rid of stubborn fat. The caffeine found in coffee and tea is a great way to kickstart your metabolism, with modest consumption aiding in heart and overall immune health.
Unlike refined sugar, honey is a natural sweetener that contains a number of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. According to honeyfanatic.com, “the problem with losing weight is self-control, low energy, and choosing the wrong foods to help burn fat and contribute toward good health. Honey takes care of all three problems.”
Honey has a healthier glycemic index (GI) than sugar, which sustains energy longer, with a much lower risk of the inevitable “sugar crash.” Honey also contains folate, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6, all vital nutrients. Make sure to use raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurized organic honey for optimal results.
