Biggi Does Detox – Day 13

You know when it comes to weight loss, every little bit helps! Did you know a study has shown that just one teaspoon of cumin a day could help you lose three times more body fat in a 3-month period?


“Researchers at Iran’s Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences randomly split 88 overweight or obese women into 2 groups. For 3 months, both groups received nutrition counseling and decreased their daily intake of calories by 500. But one group was also eating 3 grams (a little less than 1 teaspoon) of cumin powder daily, swirled into 5 ounces of yogurt (the same amount of yogurt, minus the cumin, was also prescribed to the control group).

At the end of the 3-month trial, members in the cumin group had lost 3 more pounds than those in the non-cumin group for a total of 13 pounds weight loss. More impressively, the cumin group members decreased body fat percentage by 14.64%—almost triple the 4.91% loss posted by the control group—apparently due to the addition of the fat-burning spice.” –

And here are even more benefits of cumin:

  • protects from cataracts and eye problems
  • reduces inflammation – particularly in the liver and pancreas
  • prevents osteoporosis and improve bone health
  • improves glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes
  • enhances memory
  • fights stress
  • aids digestion and energy production
  • lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides
  • improves liver function

In the study, subjects simply mixed the ground cumin into plain yogurt, but it has many uses and tastes especially delicious with sweet potatoes and in soups and stews. You can check out wonderful recipe ideas using cumin here.
