What’s The Secret Spice to Stave off Holiday Weight Gain?
Sounds too good to be true, right? Can you really avoid gaining the usual 2-7 pounds during the holidays from Halloween to New Year’s Eve?
Well, there may be one spice this season to help save your waistline which you will already have in your pantry.
Recent studies have shown the benefits of cinnamon- from warding off weight gain to stabilizing blood sugar levels. One study showed that when rats were fed a high fat diet including cinnamon they had less belly fat than the control group.
Cinnamon contains cinnamaldehyde, the essential oil which gives cinnamon its wonderful flavor, as well as its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities. But as you know, you aren’t a rat - how do you know if it will work for you? Another study used human fat cells and treated the with cinnamaldehyde. Findings showed an increase in metabolism-boosting genes and enzymes, prompting the fat cells to burn fat - rather than storing it!
Since this study wasn’t actually done in real life, there is more work to do, but…This holiday season, feel free to sprinkle cinnamon on your lattes and eggnog, while still being mindful of your indulgences.
Moderation is always key - and adding a dash of cinnamon definitely can’t hurt!
