Utilizing Folk Medicine Remedies to Jump Start Fat and Weight Loss

Using folk medicine remedies may improve overall health for most; specifically in the quest for fat and weight loss.

According to the CDC, over 30% of adults in the US are categorized as overweight or obese.

Being overweight or obese can increase a person’s chances of developing diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, as well as skin disorders and joint problems.

There is no clinical cure for being overweight or obese, however there are folk medicine remedies that CAN help cure obesity.

Water: Drinking your body’s necessary water intake can help jump start fat/weight loss efforts. When a person does not receive enough water, water retention can set in and the body’s ability to function properly slows down.

For anyone wanting to lose excess fat/weight in regards to overall health, drinking six to eight ounces of water upon waking up in the morning to hydrate the body will help. Also, depending upon individual body weight and activity level a person can gauge specific water intake. But usually drinking up to eight glasses of water a day is recommended.

Folk Medicine Kitchen Tidbit: **Adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into your water once a day can improve your body’s metabolism and help with detoxifying the body.**

Fruits and Veggies: Making lifestyle changes via increasing fruit and veggie intake can lower body weight and improve fat loss in a positive way!

For three reasons — fruits and veggies are low in calories, they have a lot of nutrients required for the body to function and they are high in fiber.

Some fruits and veggies to add to your lifestyle include apples, avocados, bananas, broccoli, celery, cauliflower, collards, dandelion, honeydews, onions, tomatoes, watermelons and zucchini.

Knowledge: Gaining knowledge about food and doing your research about the content of the foods consumed can help with decreasing fat/weight loss. Also, for most, trial and error (because no one body is the same and no one food or regimen will work for all people) is another useful key.
