Green Tea   3  0   

Posted by Leighne (Compton, California) on 03/04/2008

[YEA]  Green Tea (Liquid concentrate). I have been drinking green tea (tea bags) and putting 6 drops of the liquid tea for about 8 weeks. I have energy that I never had. I also dropped 8 lbs. This tea tastes great also, I do not put any other ingredients in the tea, just the natural flavors. Everyday I drink 1 1/2 cups of hot tea.

I just started taking 1T cider vinegar every day in my water for about 2 weeks. I noticed my eyes are not as dry in the mornings as they usually are.

Grilled Chicken and Cabbage Weight Loss Recipe   1  0   

Posted by Nicole (Phoenix, AZ) on 08/30/2007

[YEA]  I was given this recipe (see below) from my mother to lose baby weight, I noticed I lost weight, had better bowel movements, hemmoroids went away, and my baby blues were gone. I stoped because I was craving other foods. I noticed how bad i felt when I stopped taking it.

cabbage -diced
grill chicken - (optional)

green onion - diced
cilantro - diced
slice almonds


dressing

2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar or more to taste
1 tsp sea salt(optional)
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp soysauce(optional)
1 tsp hot mustard or
cayenne pepper (my choice)
2 tsp organic maple syrup Grade B
mix and pour over salad

You can do variations of this, I added raisins, or dried cherries. It worked for me losing weight, depression, hormonal acne, joint pain, and I recovered faster from my c-section.

Do you use raw cabbage?

Hawthorn and Hibiscus Tea   1  0   

Posted by Anonymous (Usa) on 08/09/2013

[YEA]  Hawthorn and hibiscus tea shrinks my waist. It's T... M... Brand. I drink three cups each day, the difference is noticeable the next morning. It's dark pink colored and fruity flavored. I tried lasiks once and this seems to work as well as lasiks did. I've had that "apple shape" since I was a child. I think it started after I got vaccinated.

I used to drink way too much coffee and aspirin without eating. Now I get really sick if I do. My legs hurt, my ankles swell, my stomach hurts. So I quit the coffee and aspirin. You might want to do that too. If my legs hurt I eat bananas and drink fortified rice milk and go to bed, or eat cottage cheese with spaghetti sauce. So my digestive system is probably suffering from the aspirin and coffee. I tend to not tolerate gluten, either.

WebMD says this about Hawthorn:

"Hawthorn can help improve the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during contractions, widen the blood vessels, and increase the transmission of nerve signals.

Hawthorn also seems to have blood pressure-lowering activity, according to early research. It seems to cause relaxing of the blood vessels farther from the heart. It seems that this effect is due to a component in hawthorn called proanthocyanidin.

Research suggests that hawthorn can lower cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad cholesterol"), and triglycerides (fats in the blood). It seems to lower accumulation of fats in the liver and the aorta (the largest artery in the body, located near the heart). Hawthorn fruit extract may lower cholesterol by increasing the excretion of bile, reducing the formation of cholesterol, and enhancing the receptors for LDLs. It also seems to have antioxidant activity..."

Honey and Cinnamon   5  0

I have a question, could you take cinammon pills with the honey instead of mixing it? The cinammon is to over powering for me.

I warm about a cup of water in microwave for a minute. Then, I add a tsp of ceylon cinnamon and a tsp of honey and drink on empty stomach in the morning and again before bed.

The arthritis/swelling in my wrist goes away within half an hour and stays away for about 12 hours! I can't recommend it highly enough.

I was reading about the honey and cinnamon weight loss tricks and other weight loss methods and I was wondering if honey with tea helped at all?

(question) I enjoy the taste of the remedy, but the cinnamon we have here is Mexican cinnamon. My question is, Is there a difference or do I need to stop worrying about which cinnamon? I saw big bags of cinnamon sticks at the Indian mkt today but didnt get one bc I have lots of cinnamon (canela) at home. That shop sources pretty much everything from India, or sometimes England like with my Amla hair oil. Spent way too much there this week though, sigh. Too many good things. Thx.

[YEA]  Honey for Weight Loss and Stress:

I'm a big fan of honey for helping lose and maintain weight loss. My biggest problem with dieting is not that I don't enjoy daily exercise and vegetables, but I could not get rid of my sugar cravings in order to stop binging on cookies and chocolate! Especially in the afternoon and evening. It was stressing me out so bad I'd end up quitting and just yo-yoing my weight again. So read about honey, and thought it was worth a try. I started eating 1 TBS organic blackberry honey along with sprinkling of cinnamon on half a slice of toasted whole wheat pita bread. Perks me right up and gives me energy, and it gets rid of my sugar cravings! It's easy now to ignore high-fat fare, and I get a nutritious snack in the process that I don't have to feel guilty about. I've lost 64 pounds so far in the last year!

At what time of day do you have your honey?

Posted by Chu (Edmond, Oklahoma ) on 04/04/2009

[YEA]  i have been drinking honey and cinnamon tea for about a month and have lost 10lbs i don't really change anything about my diet, however i noticed somedays i do eat less and do not have the munchies, but somedays i will pigout and not gain any weight,,,i drink it mainly at nite, and sometimes in the morning if i have time,,,i do add a ginger/honey flavored tea to it to mask the taste of the cinnamon and honey

recipe, i put in two shakes of cinnamon
one spoon of honey to taste, if it doesn't taste good you're not going to drink it, so adjust accordingly and use a tea that is to your taste,,,

it is important to use ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) not cassia cinnamon (Cinnamomum Cassia) because ceylon cinnamon only has .004% Coumarin and cassia has 5% Coumarin. Relatively small amounts of coumarin can damage the liver of particularly sensitive individuals.

i also found if i used pure raw unprocessed unfiltered honey the results were much faster,,,raw unprocessed honey is not runny and is in a solid state much like butter.

for those who like to follow recipes exactly
i use Owl brand Ginger Honey tea
Wee Bee Honey Naturally Raw
cinnamon from http://www.a1spiceworld.com/cinnamon_ground.html because most cinnamon found in stores are cassia or they are not even labeled, so it was easier to be sure i had the correct kind when i bought online, this was the cheapest place i could find it,,, i bought the 8oz size which comes in a convient shaker, this is lasting me a long time i've barely made a slight dent in the bottle.

hope this helps some of you guys with your weight loss goals!

[YEA]  Hi, I used a honey and cinnamon remedy that I heard about from my friend. If you use about a table spoon of raw honey in a cup of warm water (hot will kill the enzymes) and some cinnamon (I don't know exactly how much to use, I just use a couple shakes from the shaker). It speeds up your metabolism, I've lost a little weight, I have yet to weigh myself, but I can already tell, so I suggest trying it.

But after starting to do this I have started getting rash on my face and scratching of my eyes skin. Please advise me whether it is because of honey and cinnamon.

Your problem w/ the cinnamon & ceylon honey sounds like you might have an allergy to one of the two ingredients.

Regarding your rash to cinnamon - I believe cinnamon is a lot like ginger in that energetically it moves toxins to the skin for removal from the body, vs. the bowels, kidneys, liver etc.

Hi, I became obese after delivery. I tried honey and cinnamon remedy for obesity which was explained by 2 readers. I boiled the water and added honey and cinnamon powder. But after a little cooling water turned into a little sticky fluid (ex: like grease) and was unable to drink. Anyhow i consumed it. But after drinking i felt vomiting sensation and some uneasyness in the stomach. can you please help me by explaining the correct procedure of this remedy. Thanks in advance.

To answer your question about the honey and cinnamon remedy, Hema:

Put the cinnamon and honey together and make a paste. Let that sit for half an hour or so, then add the boiling water and stir. Cover the mixture for another half hour, let it stand; then filter the mixture, and you have your tea. Drink half in the morning, half an hour before breakfast, and half at night, right before bed. Any kind of honey and cinnamon will do. Hope that helps.

Boiling water will kill what is good in honey. Do not add boiling water or microwave.

You have to filter the cinnamon from the water as best you can. I too felt a little sick after.

[YEA]  I was looking on your site a couple days ago and saw a remedy with honey to help lose weight. I tried it and found that i had more energy during the day, had less of an appetite, and fell asleep faster at night!! i love it! the remedy i found was every morning, a half hour before breakfast, as well as right before bed at night, drink a tablespoon of honey in one cup of boiling water with a teaspoon of cinnamon. It has only been four days, but man, what a difference!!

[YEA]  Daily in the morning, 1/2 hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water. If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also drinking of this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.
