A number of health experts agree that boosting your metabolism is probably the most effective ways to burn fat. And, there’s no better way to achieve this than by including some foods into your diet. The thing is some simple ingredients, such as spices, are amazing metabolism boosters. All you have to do is include these into your diet on a regular basis and burn fat without doing anything.
According to a study by researchers from the Medical Sciences University of Iran, cumin is extremely efficient in stimulating the fat-burning process in the body. The 3-month study included two groups of 44 women, all of which were overweight. During the research, the women were given advice on healthy nutrition and were allowed to consume 500 calories a day. The only difference was that one group was also asked to include 3 grams of powdered cumin into their diet on a regular daily basis. The women in this group combined the spice with 140g of yogurt, whereas the second group only consumed the same amount of yogurt minus the cumin.
The amazing fat-burning properties of cumin are due to filosterole, a compound that can effectively prevent cholesterol retention in the body. The researchers concluded that filosterole is the reason why cumin is so beneficial for boosting the metabolism into a fat-burning process.
