There are so many ways that claim to help people in losing weight. There are special and strict diets that are often combined with exercises. Not everyone is happy with these solutions though. How about those who are too busy to go to the gym and prepare their food? Most importantly, how about people who are too lazy to get up the couch and burn calories? Finally, there is an answer for these individuals: the juice that can help lose weight without doing anything.
You only need three things to make this juice:
- One cup of water (equivalent to eight ounces or 237 mL)
- One teaspoon of cinnamon
- Two teaspoon of honey
Once you have the ingredients ready, here are the steps on how to make this drink:
Step 1: Boil water.
Step 2: When the water boils, pour it on the cinnamon and let it steep until it reaches a temperature that you can safely drink it. Make sure to cover the drink while you let it cool.
Step 3: Add honey to the cinnamon drink. It is important that you pour honey when the drink is no longer hot. This is because too much heat will destroy the nutrients and enzymes in the honey. Make sure that you use two parts of raw honey for every one part cinnamon.
It is recommended that you drink half of the mixture before you go to bed. Refrigerate the other half and drink it when you wake up. As much as possible, have it when you still haven’t eaten or drunk anything. You don’t have to reheat it before drinking. Also, don’t add extra flavors. This drink will allow you to burn calories even when you are sitting down. Plus, it also increases the speed of your metabolism.
Other Ways to Lose Weight without Much Effort
For the lazy dieters, there are even more ways to lose weight, including the following:
- Multitask while you watch TV by walking or doing simple exercises during the commercial breaks.
- Cook once a week and eat the leftovers the whole week to limit your choices of food.
- Use nonstick cookware to cut down calories. Also cook without oil and butter to lessen the fat and calories you get from the food you eat.
- Eat slowly by taking a break after each bite.
Losing weight does take a bit more patience and hard work. But sometimes, we tend to feel lazy and just want to sit on the couch doing nothing. Drink the juice and follow the tips above to reduce the flab without sweat.
