Re: Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss

I take Cinammon pills for an insulin problem I have. It stops me from feeling tired after meals, and it works wonderful for that purpose, but I haven't exactly noticed weight loss, although my weight is always mainted between 119-122 lbs.

Apparently cinnamon quickens the chemical reaction that makes you feel full, i don't know if honey can help with dieting.

Re: Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss

Pffft. I drink both every morning and I'm not skinny. I hear ACV helps too, tried it and stayed the same size. So they don't work for me.

Re: Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss

If you want to lose weight you need to intake 10-15 calories x by your body weight. example:10-15x200 = 2,000-3,000 divided into 5 meals a day = 400-600 calories per meal, you should be eating every 3-4 hours.

You should substitute a meal or 2 with a protein shake- 12oz fat free milk, 2 scoop protein powder and a hand full of any kind of fruit you want.

The key to weight loss IS you HAVE to EAT! the more you whey the more you get to eat. Think of your calories as MONEY spend wisely.

1g of fat cost you 9 calories
1g of protein cost you 4 calories
1g of carbohydrates cost you 4 calories

So basically eating fat costs twice as many calories as a protein or a carb, meaning you get to eat half as much food, you want to eat more protein and carbs then fats.

Eat lean protein (chicken or turkey but not fried or battered), good carbs like (baked potato no butter no sour cream), good fats (omega 3 omega 6 avocado flax seed).

As far as your Honey and cinnamon concoction theres no way it will help you lose weight since honey is basically just sugar.

Hope this helps..

I've never heard of it. Just be careful you have no reactions to honey - one of my good friends does

Re: Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss

Now just because honey has "sugar" doesn not mean it is not good for you. Honey is a natural sweetner, but not the fake stuff, the real stuff. Agave is another good replacement for sugar actually. Your body is able to break down natural sugars vs synthetic sugars.

And just because it is natural doesn't mean it is good for you... Arsnic is natural! lol It's all about calories coming in vs burning off....

Re: Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss

I have never heard of this before, I have heard cinnamon and apple cider vinegar. When I am trying to lose weight, I count my carbs its easier. I also just eat whole wheat breads, and dreamfields pasta or whole wheat pasta. I also do not eat sugar. If you want to feel full, drink a glass of water before a meal. This fills you, so your food doesnt. Also sometimes we feel like we are hungry, but we really aren't. Really its just that we are dehydrated, so when you feel hungry and you have eaten within the last couple of hours try drinking water, maybe the hunger will go away, if not then you are really hungry. Also drinking the normal 8 glasses of water each day helps with hunger, and for every 20 pounds of weight you need to lose, add another glass of water to your day.

Correct....everything is bad for you if it is abused, but everything in moderation is good for you. Agave and honey is actually used by alot of fitness professionals as a substitute for sugar which is harder for your body to break down. Again, moderation is key.

I don't know from honey and cinnamon.  They are both tasty that's about the extent of my knowledge, however:

 

@mmagirl - your advice makes sense to me

 

There are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss and maintenance of that loss.  I have tried every gimmick in the book and the only thing that works is eating healthy mini meals 4 or 5 times a day and *gasp* exercise.  At least that's been my experience for the past 25 years. 

 

Best of luck!

the honey and cinnamon tea drink/diet can help with weight loss. I had to try it when i was reading about how many other people were succeeding with it!

 

I was actually looking for cinnamon because i wanted to boost my antioxidant intake and i found out that cinnamon is incredible for that, one of the highest known anti oxidants (leaving bluebberries miles behind!). when searching for and learning about cinnamon i came across the cinnamon and honey weight loss trick and got totally hooked into everyones success stories.

 

however, i soon learned that you cannot take just any old cinnamon because the only one you can tend to find in the west is cassia bark cinnamon which has high levels of coumarin (toxic if taken regularly). so, be warned, dont buy cassia bark, buy real cinnamon/ceylon cinnamon and you wont have to worry about the worrying toxic side effects!!

 

i am not overweight but one of those people whose bellys tend to get fat first so i was keen to get rid of it and was pleased to read that the cinnamon drink actually stops fats storing in the mid section area -- GREAT NEWS :)  lol

 

I was religious with the tea making and did it for 2 weeks and maybe i was just lucky but the horrid bulge i had for 1year had massively reduced, not just a little, but i mean noticeably A LOT and i just felt great overall. no kidding but i could get into jeans which i had not worn for over a year just because i couldnt do the zip up let alone the button.

 

i know it can be hard to find real/true ceylon cinnamon but this place could be helpful for people living in the uk, or even abroad! i am going on the diet again and just waiting for my cinnamon tea bags to arrive as they are the exact 2 gram portion needed for the tea drink which means no messing around measuring things. yippeee!!

good luck to everyone!! please just try it, you might be surprised, and before i forget, here is the place i just bought mine from recently www.buyrealcinnamon.co.uk

I have stated the honey and cinnamon diet I am 38 yrs old I have been on it for 3 days and have lost 4lbs. The honey is only used as a natural sweetner.
post #24 of 46

I started this 3 days ago. I'll post my results when my week is over with. I have noticed that I have an increase in energy

post #25 of 46

I tried this after I got some info on it last year.  I used pure, organic cinnamon and organic unprocessed honey and it did nothing for me but make me sick to my stomach after drinking it.  Maybe that's how you lose weight is by being nauseous, because I was for about 3 hours after each time I drank it.  I tried it for 2 days and then that was enough.

post #26 of 46

After a lot of Google search I found out many people had tried it and benefited  with Honey and cinnamon.....for their weight loss ......So I have started it as well....lets hope for best result !!!

post #27 of 46

Yes it works but not exactly for losing a lot of weight. It works like a laxative. It clenses you. I've tried it a few weeks stop then do it again.You must use raw honey though that you can pick up from a health food store. Some cinnamons work better too.

post #28 of 46

honey is a natural sweetener and is better for you than sugar. it helps boost your metabolism because of this whole thing about balanced fructose and glucose levels or something??...and actually if you do drink honey and cinnamon before breakfast and before bed it helps burn a little amount of fat and keeps new fat from staying in your body. PLUS you get full faster than before....or i did anyway. so it may or may not help with your weightloss...but for me it did :)

post #29 of 46

Cinnamon is supposed to help boost how insulin works in sugars to turn it into energy instead of fat.  Honey is supposed to be all around good for you as it has antibiotic properties and it never goes bad.

Tried it made me feel sick too, i was nauseas for like 2 hours!
