The cupboard staple, used for cookies, cakes and hot chocolate, can actually be used to slim your stomach – if used slightly differently.
Cinnamon, a spice that comes from the bark of trees, is a useful addition to your diet.
The spice can reduce blood sugar and insulin levels – which helps with weight loss.
The effects are such that cinnamon has been recommended as a “useful add-on therapy in the discipline of integrative medicine in managing type 2 diabetes” in a study.
Weight loss diet plans that feature cinnamon added to water can help slim your stomach
Though it’s not a miracle cure, it has been suggested that adding cinnamon water to your diet can be beneficial – and even help you shed 13lbs of body fat.
A nutritionist has claimed that swapping just one of your usual drinks for cinnamon water could burn off the impressive amount of weight – almost a stone of body fat.
For example – replacing your morning orange juice with cinnamon water could have you dropping weight almost effortlessly, Elisabetta Politi, R.D., a nutritionist with Duke Health told Women’s Health.
“Adding cinnamon water can’t boost weight loss but I certainly would recommend it to anyone trying to increase fluid intake,” Elisabetta said.
You can make the water by boiling a cinnamon stick in a jug.
Once you have allowed it to cool you can add it to your normal water as a concentrate.
