This is a fantastic weight loss drink taught to me by Charles Poliquin and originated by C.Leigh Broadhurst as a remedy for diabetes.
Simply take 3 rounded teaspoons of cinnamon and put them in a cafetiere. Pour on 33 fluid ounces of boiling water, steep, cool, and then decant. Sip this in small quantities (8 ounces, four times a day). After 1-3 weeks reduce this to 1 cup a day. This is an excellent blood sugar management drink. Type 1 diabetics can use it but should start at one cup a day and monitor their insulin requirements very closely as they may dramatically reduce.
Cinnamon is one of these best spices you can use for blood sugar management and by extension it will have a positive effect on body composition. If the drink doesn't appeal then what you can do is put a teaspoon of cinnamon into your coffee - this in itself will help with weight management. Anecdotally a client of mine dropped her Ldl cholesterol by increasing her cinnamon intake as well !
Enjoy, and let me know how you get along with this. . .
