If you are tied to your desk at work, working late hours, or you just don’t feel like leaving home to go to the gym, but still with a desire to lose some weight, then this lazy diet is the right choice for you. Its main ingredients are cinnamon and honey, part of the hottest and most used weight loss trends nowadays. Used as a topping in cereals, in tea or milk warm beverages, or eaten straight and raw, honey and cinnamon will boost your metabolism and will help you burn hundreds of calories with just sitting and doing nothing.
To get the best effects and to exploit the most of their benefits, it is recommended to use one part of cinnamon to two parts of honey. The recipe goes like this:
– 250 ml water
– 1 tsp. ground organic cinnamon
– 2 tsp. raw honey
Pour the water in a pot and bring it to heat until it start simmering. Put the cinnamon in a deep plate and scald it with the boiling water. Mix the fluid well, cover the plate and leave it to cool down until safe enough to drink. Once cool, add the raw honey and stir. Make sure never to add honey in a hot liquid, as the heat will abolish all its enzymes and nutrients. You can store the drink covered in the fridge for 24 hours. Do not reheat it before drinking.
It is best to drink half of the mixture before going to bed, right after preparation, and the remaining half in the morning. You’ll have weight loss effects only if you consume the drink on an empty stomach.
In addition, you may also experience some energy boost and an increase to your libido.
