The short preparation time of processed food is the most common solution when you arrive at home hungry and tired, just to fix something fresh yet quick. Alternatively, we choose something from the fast-food vendors to make our life easier, because who has the time for cooking? However, this kind of eating habit makes a permanent impact on our weight and health. Yet, some food, drink, and treatments can help reduce excess mass, are easy to consume, and benefits our health. Let's check them out!

Cinnamon has been used for medical treatments since ancient times, although it can be dangerous. Its healing effects are vast, as it has anti-inflammatory benefits while helping with blood glucose levels and reducing cholesterol. Moreover, its antioxidant properties highly improve the health of the users. Furthermore, it has been discovered that cinnamon reduces your appetite as well. 

So, all you need to do is add some cinnamon to your food, tea, or dairy products and watch your well-being improve and your belly disappears. You can't expect results overnight, as it has to be your daily routine for at least a month to have some effects. After all, you didn't gain those pounds overnight, so be realistic, as magic pills don't exist. 

9. Clay Body Wrap

Okay, this one is a bit controversial, as one swear by its efficiency, while others say it doesn't work at all. However, clay has been used since ancient times, and it has some healing effects on the human body. Today, clay body wraps are used in the spa as, allegedly, they can slim you a bit. If you haven't tried the clay body wrap, we recommend it, as it will smooth your skin.  

Let's get back to the weight loss because clay has an antioxidant effect, so it will absorb the excess water and toxins from your body. It could slightly speed up the slimming process, but don't expect to lose a few pounds from one treatment. 

8. Eggs

There are numerous studies about the benefits of egg consumption. Moreover, the studies say that consuming them for breakfast will stop you from overeating during the day. So, all you need to do is boil an egg or two and add it to your first meal. This way, you'll be packed with protein as it contains seven grams in just one egg, yet you'll consume a low amount of calories. 

Although the yolk is full of cholesterol, it's highly nutritious and beneficial for the skin of a healthy person. However, we don't need to tell you that boiled eggs are the best option, as the fried ones are full of unnecessary fat and calories. 

7. Leafy Greens

Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, broccoli, swiss chards, collards, iceberg lettuce, and others are full of vitamins, antioxidants and generally good for your health. Hence eating them fills in your meal with food low in calories and rich with fibers.

Moreover, nutritionists often suggest that more than half of the plate should be leafy greens for more effortless weight loss. So this is simple - instead of eating carbs, try to substitute them with greens by your choice. Start small, aim big, and in time, you'll see the results. Moreover, they are all rich in iron (especially spinach) so try to include them more regularly in your diet. Even if you don't lose weight, your blood results will be better. 

6. Apple Cider Vinegar

Some swear to the benefits of apple cider vinegar regarding your general health and weight loss as well. It has been known that apple vinegar diluted with water before the meal can prevent you from overeating. Some say it even boosts your metabolism and helps you lose weight faster than usual. 

Nevertheless, apple vinegar is considered to be healthy food, so it can't be harmful. Moreover, in our opinion, even a glass of water before a meal filling your stomach can make you eat less. So why not add a bit of vinegar to it, and try it for a few weeks? Who knows, it may provide some results. 

5. Chili Peppers

If you love hot and spicy food, we have good news for you! Consuming chili peppers can reduce your appetite and even help burn fat as it contains the capsaicin substance. Oh, and if you're not used to consuming chili peppers every day, the effect will be much better. 

Therefore, people who eat spicy food daily will have to increase it a bit, but it's important not to overdo it. Or, you can try to go on for a couple weeks without the peppers, then slowly add them to your menu again, as this should solve the problem. 

4. Blueberries

First of all, blueberries feel delicious, sweet, and tasty, so you can't resist them. Secondly, they are so low in calories that you can enjoy them as much as you wish. In practice, a half-cup contains only 40 calories, which sounds excellent!

Third, blueberries contain antioxidants that bring benefits to your health, flushing the toxins out of your body. Moreover, they are rich in iron, so if you are among many with anemia problems, here is your sweet cure that's also loaded with fiber. Just remember, we don't recommend blueberry pie, as you should eat them fresh or drink a smoothie. 

3. Coconut

Lately, the benefits of consuming coconut oil and coconut water have been published everywhere. Its popularity has increased thanks to celebrities who advertise daily intake of coconut water. Moreover, studies have shown that consummation of coconut oil can reduce belly fat. This is due to the faster satiety than when devouring other fats. On the plus side, it increases the number of burned calories. 

Therefore, adding coconut to your daily regime can speed up the slimming process. Moreover, it can be beneficial to your health. However, hope we don't need to stress that it's necessary to replace other fat with coconut oil to see the benefits? Hence, if you just add up coconut oil on top of daily fat consumption, it will have no effect, as this way, you are just combining the calories. 

2. Green Tea

The benefits of green tea to human health are known since ancient times as it's been used in China, Thailand, and Asia in general for centuries. It has been shown that green tea helps the body get rid of potentially harmful toxins as it includes antioxidants. 

Furthermore, one of the ingredients of green tea is phytochemical catechins, which speeds up metabolism. As we know, fast metabolism is a quick way of losing weight. You can even increase the tea's benefits by adding healthy lemon juice to the cup and consuming it hot. This is simple math, as by adding more liquid to your daily routine, you'll control your appetite.

1. Grapefruit

Like all other citruses, the grapefruit is rich in vitamin C, helping our body to burn fat. Moreover, just a half of grapefruit before the meal will make you consume fewer calories. Hence, the fruit is full of fibers, and they will fill your stomach, preventing overeating. Furthermore, the grapefruit is rich in antioxidants, boosting your immune system. 

Finally, it has a significant influence on insulin level, as in lowering your cholesterol. Therefore, all you need is to peel the grapefruit and eat it, so it's easy to prepare. There's no excuse!  

To conclude, these are some easy suggestions that you can add to your daily habits to ease up your weight problems and improve your health. They will not have the magical effect, but you'll feel the slow progression towards the goal.
