How to lose pounds using natural weight loss remedies? Short answer: Avoid refined sugars and refined white flour. Try these simple remedies, to hear the words — “Have you lost weight?”
Here is a simple and fast weight loss program that anyone can follow to lose pounds in days not weeks. It doesn’t matter whether you are young or old, if you eat less of refined sugars and refined carbs, specially refined white flour, you won’t have the urge to over eat. When you eat refined sugars or refined white flour you end up in a vicious cycle of blood sugar and insulin rise and drop. That makes you feel hungry every hour or so and you end up eating a lot more than you should have.
Say No to white sugar and white flour
White sugar is in fact addictive so is white flour. Want to eat something sweet, try fresh or dried fruits instead. Eat organic apples all day. You can also eat dates, figs or add some natural honey as sweetener. Apples and other whole fruits are loaded with fiber and nutrients; they normalize your blood sugar and decrease your appetite. You should eat at least one apple every day. White flour causes constipation as it clogs up your digestive system, slowing down your metabolism. Use organic whole grain flours that have not been processed or stripped of the fiber.
Take honey cinnamon tea
Add a stick of cinnamon to two cups of water and let it simmer for fifteen minutes on low heat. Now take it off the stove and add raw honey to it. Drink it twice a day to lose pounds naturally.
Say No to high fructose corn syrup
This sweetener makes you fat and is physically addictive. Just stop buying food that contains high fructose corn syrup. The sweeteners that are used in food produced in a natural way include organic honey, organic molasses, organic fruit juice, organic dates, the herb stevia, and evaporated sugar cane juice. Simply read the labels and if you can’t pronounce it, don’t buy it.
Take charge and do what needs to be done. You’ll look better, you’ll feel better, and you will be healthier
Take mint and ginger tea after every meal
Add 5 grams of mint leaves and 2 grams of freshly grated ginger to a cup of hot water and let it steep for 15 minutes. Keep it covered and take it after every meal to lose body fat. Alternatively you can have ginger tea twice a day.
Drink a glass of water immediately upon arising
Ideally, the water should be distilled, warm water. You can add lemon juice and few drops of honey. This starts the body’s metabolism and cleansing.
It is interesting to note that people who are overweight usually eat a small or no breakfast at all. It should be the other way around.Your breakfast should consist of the following items: apples, pears, berries, kiwis, pineapples, grapefruit, plums, peaches, prunes, figs, rye bread, raw butter (raw means not pasteurized and not homogenized), raw milk, plain yogurt (this means no sugar or fruit), wild smoked salmon, beef in any form as long as it’s organic, chicken in any form as long as it’s organic, tuna, sardines, eggs, tomatoes, peppers, salsa, celery, carrots, any vegetable, potatoes in limited amounts, coffee in limited amounts made with with raw milk or cream and raw evaporated sugar cane juice or honey as a sweetener, and real tea (no tea bags please).
Avoid water with meals
People think drinking water will make them gain weight and be bloated. The exact opposite is true.
If you are overweight you need to flush the toxins from your fat cells. Water is absolutely needed
for you to lose weight. Drink at least 8 glasses of fresh water a day, and more importantly 10 to 15 mins before meals. Avoid drinking water during or after a meal.
Walk for at least 30 minutes to an hour
The body is designed to walk. A one-hour walk everyday will change your body dramatically in as little as four weeks.
Research shows that slow, rhythmic movement exercise, such as walking, resets your body’s weight set point and creates a thin, lean body. Walk at least 4 to 5 times a week.

Consume organic coconut oil
While full of energy, coconut oil boosts metabolism and burns fat. Find good quality organic, cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil. Avoid refined coconut oil. You can add it to your salad dressing or add a teaspoon to a cup of green tea.
Eat organic grapefruits
It appears that there actually is an enzyme in grapefruits that burns fat. Eating grapefruits will speed the fat burning process.
Say no to aspartame and diet food
These are simply not helping your cause, so say no to all artificial sweeteners, diet soda, diet food; period.
Say No to Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
MSG is an excitotoxin, almost all Fast Foods have it. It makes you fat, causes all kinds of medical problems, and can affect your mood making you depressed. It also can be physically addicting, like aspartame, and actually make you hungrier. There are dozens of words that can be on the label such as spices, artificial flavoring, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, etc., that are in fact MSG in disguise.
If you are overweight there is an excellent chance your body is not producing enough digestive
enzymes, causing you to gain weight, feel bloated, have gas, indigestion, and constipation. Go to
your health food store and inquire.
Eat organic meat, poultry, and fish.
Because of the growth hormone put in meat and poultry, you gain weight. If you want to lose weight, eat organic, grass fed,
hormones free meat. Same is true for fish, the fish you eat should not be farm raised.
Limit dairy products
Eat only organic products that have not been pasteurized or homogenized. The dairy products should be labeled “organic and
raw.” It may be hard to find raw dairy products in some parts of the country. The next best option is organic, not homogenized, but that has been pasteurized. Your last option is organic that has been both pasteurized and homogenized. Ideally, if you want to lose weight, reduce dairy regardless of what you are getting.
Eat salad at lunch and dinner
Whatever you eat at lunch, add to it a big, huge salad and eat that first. You’ll be amazed how you lose weight. The salad can contain anything you like as long as it is only vegetables, and they are organic. The salad dressing should be organic
olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice, or organic vinegar. If you really want to speed the weight loss process, use organic apple cider vinegar. Add some organic sea salt, fresh ground pepper, or some garlic for taste.
A rebounder, or mini trampoline, allows you to stimulate and strengthen every cell in the body simultaneously. Gently jumping up and down on a rebounder for just ten minutes a day stimulates the lymphatic system and increases your metabolism. It is very effective for health and weight loss, and you also add strength to your muscles.
Add hot peppers to your meals
Anything spicy or hot will increase your metabolism and make you burn fat quicker. Imagine for
breakfast having some scrambled eggs, some lamb chops, and some rye toast with organic butter.
Smother the eggs with some organic hot salsa and you will simply lose weight faster.
This has some magical property which helps eliminate fat cells from the body. Take a couple of teaspoons before each meal and you will be amazed at how your clothes will become bigger in no time.
Drink Apple cider vinegar, honey and grapefruit

Practice deep breathing to lose weight
Oxygen burns fat. Most people do not breathe enough to stimulate their metabolism and fat burning
Detox and lose pounds using juice fasting
Detox should be number one, but for most people this is the hardest. Going on a proper juice fast for
twenty-one days will completely detoxify your body, flush fat cells, and reset your body’s weight
set point. It is one of the fastest ways to lose weight, and one of the most effective ways to change
the body’s set point so that you will not gain the weight back. This should be done under
supervision depending upon your medical condition.
It’s amazing that little things can make a difference. When looking at this list, a good way to attack
it is pick one thing on the list and do that for just one day. Then, look for another thing on the list
and, while still doing the first thing, add the second thing.
Most Importan!!! Cheat whenever you want
You want ice cream, cookies, cakes, chocolate, french fries, pizza, potato chips? Don’t deprive
yourself. It’s better to eat something without guilt than not eat something and feel bad about it.
From best to worst, it looks like this: You are offered a piece of chocolate cake. You look at it and
decide that you’re full and wouldn’t really enjoy it, so it does not look that appealing to you. You
politely say “no thanks” and feel great about your choice. You feel no deprivation.
