The Best Home Remedies for Losing Weight

I have found that the best way to lose weight, in addition to eating health foods and exercising regularly, is to use home remedies for weight loss. They are very inexpensive, completely natural, and they simply work.


Do you think that the reason behind your weight may be a thyroid issue? If so, seaweed just may be the cure for you. Seaweed and kelp are packed with nutrients and minerals that help your body to process fats and toxins.

They also help speed up the thyroid gland significantly. If your thyroid is stopping you from losing weight (and even if you don't have a thyroid problem), seaweed capsules taken daily can have a great impact and get you on the road to a slimmer self.

Green Tea

The Japanese and Chinese have been drinking this type of tea for thousands of years. It is well known for its ability to increase your metabolism, helping you to get moving. Adding green tea to your diet is a smart idea if you truly want to lose weight. Unlike Oolong tea, green tea hasn't been oxidized, and thus doesn't lose its nutritive qualities.

In fact, green tea has so many antioxidants that it acts as a body cleanser, helping your organs to process faster and cause fat to be used instead of stored. This makes for great home remedies to lose weight, and can also be the reason that drinkers find themselves with beautiful nails, hair and skin when they drink the tea daily.

Cultural Home Remedy for Weight Loss


This traditional Chinese medicine remedy is used with reishi mushrooms. It has long been said among the Chinese that these mushrooms improve longevity and strength in the body, and prepare you to lose weight by giving energy and stamina. Here is the catch with Reishi. It won't cause weight loss alone, but it will help you stay motivated to stick with a good diet and exercise program.

Reishi  Home Remedies to Lose Weight


One of the best home remedies to lose weight is to add ginseng to your tea. Ginseng is a well known herb that delivers high amounts of energy to the body. Unlike more dangerous herbs such as the Brazilian guarana, ginseng is a safe alternative to upping your metabolism and helping yourself to get ready each day.

Fish Oil

This may seem counterintuitive, but consuming a healthy amount of fish oil each day actually helps one lose weight. Because of its natural state, fish oil tells your body to use its fat instead of save it. According to a 2007 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was found that both fish oil and exercise helped its participants lose weight.

However, these two factors were mutually exclusive, meaning that you didn't have to exercise to lose weight by eating fish oil. Participants who both exercised and consumed fish oil lost the most weight overall. These natural home remedies to lose weight are simple and effective, especially if you combine a few of them to up your results.
