Are there fat burning herbs? This is another question I recently received, so I figured it’s time for another article. I not only enjoy answering questions, but they provide great ideas for posts. 😀
When I say herbs, I’m talking about stuff like cinnamon, ginseng and ginger. Not “herbs” which can give you the munchies and result in the opposite effect of what you’re looking for. 😉
Are there fat burning herbs? Well, the answer is Yes, and sort of. Herbs can help with weight loss, but the process may not be exactly what people think.
There is no herb that will exercise and cut calories for you. That is all up to you, but herbs can definitely help make things easier and speed up the process.
There are four ways herbs can help you lose weight.
Let’s explore these.
Metabolism can be a confusing subject. And writing about it is difficult, I’ve deleted this paragraph and restarted several times. The difficulty stems from all the processes that are involved in metabolism and making sure I give you complete and correct information.
In its simplest form, metabolism is the process by which the body creates and uses energy. It comprises all the chemical reactions that occur in the body in order to keep it alive. When we eat, the food is converted (metabolized) into energy and if the energy cannot be used, it is stored in fat cells.
So what does it mean when someone says I have a slow or fast metabolism? They are referring to just one of the many processes that constitute metabolism. Specifically, they are referring to how fast they can use up the energy from food.
The people that can eat anything and remain thin (although there is such a thing as “skinny fat” but that’s another post), have a faster metabolism than those that eat a tortilla chip and gain 10 pounds. Okay, okay maybe not 10 pounds, but you know what I’m talking about.
Boosting your metabolism means you will use up the created energy faster and more efficiently and it will not get stored as fat.
Here are the herbs that can help boost your metabolism and curb your hunger:

While researching digestion and elimination I learned things that I can never unlearn. 😯
I am not going to cover those things because I’m already pretty grossed out and don’t want to prolong it.
Yes pooping is part of life, but there is a lot you can learn from it. Paul Chek actually has a chart floating around that shows what your stools can tell you about your health. There is also a Bristol scale that will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about your poop.
That is not what this section is about. This is about helping you get healthy digestion and cleaning the crap (pun intended) out of your body.
Studies have shown that an unhealthy digestive tract can cause problems with your immune system. Furthermore, if you are not properly or completely eliminating your body’s waste, it’s just going to sit there.
I couldn’t pinpoint an exact number, but I found that you can have several pounds of poop in your system if you’re not eliminating properly. Some said between 5 and 10 pounds, some said up to 7 pounds and there were also some that said between 5 and 25 pounds. That last one was based on the measurement of the intestines.
Here are some herbs that will help your digestion and elimination:
Stress has been known to contribute to belly fat, fatigue and imbalances in blood sugar levels through excessive cortisol production.
Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, is a steroid hormone that is key in regulating energy and mobilization in the body. Cortisol production fluctuates throughout the day in healthy individuals.
When the body is under constant stress, however, cortisol production increases and this can contribute to an increase in visceral fat, a belly fat that is linked to serious health complications.
Here are some herbs that will help reduce stress:
