A person’s body fat can be measured through BMI or Body Mass Index. You can compute for your BMI by dividing your weight by twice your height (using the metric system).
If you get a score below 18.5 that means you are underweight, 18.5 to 25 is desirable/normal, 25 to 30 is overweight, and beyond 30 is considered obese.
Being overweight or obese is usually due to poor diet and physical activities.
It is time to change your lifestyle and you can start with these awesome 10 organic home remedies to fight obesity.
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is one of the best home remedies for fighting obesity. It helps improve digestion and aids in detoxification. Healthy digestion is an essential pre-requisite for weight loss as it helps your body get the nutrients required to burn fat. Furthermore, it helps remove toxins from your body that slow down your metabolism.
- Mix three teaspoons of lemon juice, one teaspoon of honey, and one-half teaspoon of black pepper powder in one glass of water. (If you use freshly ground black pepper, then just add one-quarter teaspoon.)
- Drink it in the morning on an empty stomach.
- Do this daily for at least three months.
Alternatively, you can simply have a cup of warm water mixed with a teaspoon of lemon juice.
