Why it’s difficult to lose weight:
It’s no surprise that weight loss products and books are the number one seller year in and year out. How much money have YOU spent on the latest fad diet book or a bottle of over the counter pills promising to help you shed inches? You probably don’t want to think about it!
You start a diet and feel optimistic for the first day or two, but then you end up cranky and starving! You get so sick of diet food that you run to the nearest burger place for a super-sized everything. The pills are worse. You feel jittery and irritable only to crash later, or experience nothing at all.
Maybe you lost some weight, but you simply can’t eat rabbit food day in and day out. You’re a real person and you want real food! Stress, lack of sleep, and a shortage of time are the main reasons we go back to our old eating patterns.
You fall off another diet bandwagon, gain the weight back and more. Sound like a familiar scenario? I know, I did the same thing for decades!
Here are the three common herbs that will truly help with weight loss:
Of course, talk to your doctor before trying any of these, and be certain to follow instructions according to the product label. I can tell you that by adding these inexpensive herbs to my diet they’ve helped me to lose 70 pounds and keep it off for over three years!
Dandelion-Both the leaf and root. The leaf helps with water weight gain. Women are especially prone to bloating due to water retention. Another good thing about dandelion is it doesn’t deplete your body of potassium like other diuretics do. The root is an excellent liver detoxifier. A clogged up liver is one of the main causes of weight gain, poor elimination, headaches, and a long list of other problems.
Licorice Root-This herb helps to curb the appetite, aids digestion, reduces inflammation, is another good herb for your liver, and is said to help reduce body fat.
Psyllium Powder-This is a fiber supplement. Mix a tablespoon in a glass of juice or a sugar-free drink such as Crystal Light and drink it three times a day half an hour before each meal. Drink it fast or it gets thick! At first you may experience some gas so start out with a teaspoon and work your way up. This is fabulous for curbing your appetite and helping to eliminate all the built up toxins and gunk in your body. It may also help reduce high blood pressure, cholesterol, and your risk of colon cancer in the process!
These three easily obtained herbs are also cheap! You can get them at your local health food store, CVS, Walgreen’s, Walmart, etc.
Stress reduction, detoxifying the body, proper elimination, getting rid of excess water, and curbing the appetite naturally all go a long way to aid in permanent weight loss. The weight may not fall off over night, but slow and steady wins the race! I can tell you that I feel better now than I ever have just by adding these to my diet. Herbal weight loss supplements that are safe and gentle are so much better for the body than harsh chemicals and strict fad diets!
