Surely you are wondering how it is possible to lose weight just by drinking this infusion and that is why in this article, we explain how to make cinnamon and honey tea to lose weight and the main properties of these two natural ingredients.
The Cinnamon and Honey Tea Diet for Weight Loss
Before telling you how to prepare this tea, we will tell you what are the basics of the cinnamon and honey tea diet for weight loss.
As we have advanced, the mixture of cinnamon and honey in a tea or infusion to lose weight naturally was discovered thanks to studies conducted by nutritionists and brothers Mike and Stuart McInnes.
For them, this infusion of cinnamon and honey tea which can make you lose up to two kilos in a week has nothing miraculous but everything is based on the combination of the excellent properties that both honey and cinnamon have.
For the McInnes brothers, obesity is not caused by the consumption of fats as you may mistakenly think, but there are mainly two culprits of this physical condition and they are sugar and excessive intake of carbohydrates that first pass into our body as sugars and end up becoming fat that accumulates in our body.
In addition, there is also another factor that leads us to gain weight and that is lack of sleep or poor sleep.
Poor quality of sleep causes our brain to stress and end up releasing not only stress hormones but also appetite hormones, which makes us increase our carbohydrate intake and end up putting on weight in an inexplicable way.
For these nutritionists, the best way to break this poor routine is to drink cinnamon and honey tea before going to sleep because thanks to its properties it will make the brain considerably decrease the excessive release of appetite hormones.
Properties and Benefits of Cinnamon and Honey Tea
Cinnamon and honey tea is used to lose weight because it has excellent properties and benefits for our bodies.
The first ingredient of this infusion, cinnamon, is a spice rich in iron, fiber, calcium, and manganese which, in addition to being used as a condiment for many foods, is also indicated as a natural remedy for digestive problems such as diarrhea and indigestion.
It has also been shown in several studies that cinnamon has slimming properties as it is a stabilizer of blood sugar making these sugar levels decrease and, in turn, our body accumulates less fat throughout our body and especially in the belly.
Honey is a great substitute for industrial sugar because its composition contains natural sugars, fewer calories, and many more benefits than industrial sugar.
Among its various properties, we find that it is a sedative that helps us sleep better, strengthens immunity provides protection against possible bacteria, and also properties that help us prevent possible tumors and cancer.
As we have explained, honey also has slimming properties as it helps our liver to give fuel to the brain so that it reduces the levels of appetite and stress hormones that make us put on weight.
How to Make Cinnamon and Honey Tea for Weight Loss
To make cinnamon and honey tea and get slimming with it, just follow these steps:
- You must put in a saucepan 250 ml of water in and let it boil. Once the water is boiled, let it stand until it is lukewarm (in this way the benefits of honey will not diminish).
- With the water lukewarm or already cold, add half a tablespoon of cinnamon powder and stir the mixture. Then you have to let this mixture of water and cinnamon stand for half an hour.
- When the half-hour of rest has passed, you must strain with the help of a strainer or filter paper the remains of cinnamon that have been left in the mixture.
- Now you have to add a small spoonful of honey to the cinnamon tea and then stir again. It is vital that the water is lukewarm or cold before adding honey to the cinnamon tea as hot or boiling water will lose most of the nutrients and properties of the honey.
- When you have added the honey and stirred the mixture well, you will have made the cinnamon and honey tea for weight loss.
For best results you should divide the amount of tea you have made into two parts:
One of the halves (125ml) should be drunk half an hour before breakfast.
The other half you should drink just before going to sleep.
You can put the cinnamon and honey slimming tea in the refrigerator but never heat it again.
