Many experts believe that boosting your metabolism is the key to an effective weight loss. The good news is that there are many natural foods which can help you speed up your metabolism, especially when it comes to spices.
According to a study done by researchers of the Medical Sciences University of Iran, it is true that weight loss heavily depends on the way you combine your foods. The participants in this study were divided into two groups and each of them consisted of 44 overweight women.
At the end of the study the researchers gathered the results which were more than amazing! The women from the first group, the one which was given yogurt and cumin, lost 14 pounds more when compared to the non-cumin group.
Amazingly, the first group also lost significantly more fat than the non-cumin group. As a matter of fact, the first group lost 14.64% while the second lost only 4.91%.
What makes cumin so effective is its abundance in filosterole, a compound which prevents accumulation of cholesterol in the body. Many scientists believe that this is the reason why cumin has the ability to accelerate your metabolism.
