Looking to lose a few pounds by summer?

Then look no further than your spice cabinet to help you slim down.

I'm serious!

I'm betting you have several of these spices right now in your cabinet and you can start your journey to summer weight loss right now.

According to Moms Everyday these common everyday spices are fat burners and metabolism booster. Two words we want to hear when trying to drops a few pounds right!?

OK, so let's go through your cabinet now.

Do you have any of the following spices?

Cinnamon: Cinnamon is said to blast belly fast. "1 teaspoon of cinnamon per day dramatically lowers blood sugar and the amount of insulin produced after a meal."

Hot Sauce: Hot sauce is said to stop hunger because of the Capsaicin the stuff that gives the heat in the sauces. "Capsaicin is so powerful, in fact, studies show folks who take it before a meal consume 16% fewer calories without even realizing it."

Black Pepper: Black pepper is said to speed up your matabolism. "Pepper’s main component, piperine, delivers its pungent punch-boosts metabolism as much as 8%, a fat-burning benefit that lasts for hours!"

Ginger: Ginger gets rid of bloating and it burns fat. "One study reveals adding ground ginger to a meal, or sipping a cup of ginger tea, burns 43 calories-that’s comparable to a 10-minute workout!"

Tumeric: Tumeric is said to stop fat from being added into your system.“Turmeric also boosts metabolism and helps the liver flush out fats and toxins.”

Well, I have three of the five spices listed. Cinnamon, Hot Sauce and Black Pepper. I'm not a big fan of ginger, but I could probably drink the ginger tea. I don't think I've ever used Tumeric in anything?

So, if you're looking to get slimmer by summer go raid your spice cabinet.
