Costco vs. Sam's Club: Which is Better?
Product selection, availability, and quality also affect the customer experience. Which, if either, is the better choice? The 2nd shipment of non frozen food is still not here after being over a week, now almost a week and a half late. If you join just one warehouse club, assess your needs against each retailer's strengths and inventory before making a choice. Hi i just read a few sites about site diet and i was wondering if making one big batch at once then just re heating a cup at a time would work too? Im planning on buying cinnamon capsule, should i exclude the cinnamon on the mixture to prevent overdose?? I have lost 7.

My question is similar to that of Naz, will there be no problem drinking the mixture together without filtering? Dont expect very quick response and each body ahs its own mechanism of responding to such things so to some will be faster but to some twill take time give youself a montha nd you will see a very big difference.
Should the drink be thick or like water. My friend made it and hers was thick and mine was like water? This is to tell you it does work it has taken about 3 weeks but can tell a difference and have more energy than I have in a while.
Have been walking 2 miles every day unless it rains sometimes I get 3 but can finally feel like I can honestly say something has helped. Can anybody please tell me if there will be any side-effects or symptoms like body aches when using this method? He says he is feeling lethargic and he is looking dull. Today he started complaining of body pains. If I had pushed him into trying this I would have thought he is just making excuses. But he started this weight loss program on his own so he really should be feeling bad.
Is is common during the initial stage. Any suggestions as to why this might be happening? I am really worried. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Heating will reduce the good enzimes in the honey. If you are using honey that was heated during the packing process the enzimes are already damaged. Please someone tell me as am using it and want to be encouraged,. Geets no the drink gives energy not make you lethargic. Unless he is diabetic because cinnamon lowers blood sugar fast.
Then you can drink the liquid at the top of the container. Tried filtering the tea through natural papertowels over a large wire strainer. I also wanted to debate the poster that thought the more common cinnamon we get in the supermarkets was not the right one—the research I have seen was using the common cinnamon not the fancy TRUE cinnamon. I have the unpasteurized liquid honey so is that ok to use?
Do you know of any harmful effects of drinking down the entire unfiltered, but very flavorful, drink? Also, you should also check out the hibernation diet. I am going to try this starting tonight. I have read that if you buy local honey it can help with seasonal allergies and that is the main thing I was looking for when I did a Google search and found this site. I want to lose 12 lbs. I do cardio workouts at the gym every day and incorporate resistance training into that when I am home. Muscle weighs more than fat, so I am told that is where most of my weight comes from.
Chris from Michigan, here is a link to a honey farm in your state [link deleted by admin]. The ingredients were WV honey, cinnamon oil and cinnamon sticks.
No filtering involved either. I just boiled 1 cup of H2O and added about 2 tablespoons of the honey and stirred it up. It was so easy and fast to make it with the cinnamon already in the honey. I think that this remedy works.
I have been drinking this for a week and I do love the energy it gives. I almost feel it immediately. I have just been using the honey from Wal Mart. I will go to the health food store today to get some other honey and also look for cinnamon powder. Does anybody else have a problem with the tea turning slimy? I use to look forward to the tea but that slimy stuff is making me hesitant. In general I have felt great drinking the tea.
Itried filtering it but the stuff just blocks the filter. I only get a drink or 2 from the filtered stuff? Also what do you cover the mixture with to let it sit for a half hour?
About 10 minutes after beginning to drink this, I became violently ill. Have any of you found that this makes you throw up? Well, I have been drinking this mixture for seven days now, morning and evening.
I have not seen any weight change. As you say the cinnmon and honey mixture should be taken half an hour before breakfast, is it ok to have coffee before that? As i start work at 6AM and take a coffee break at 7: Cinnamon can certainly help with weightloss since it assists in keeping blood sugar levels under control. While this is a perfectly good drink to have, it is not a magic bullet.
Eating lots of carbs and fat and not getting enough exercise will make you and keep you fat- regardless of what else you may do. I started drinking last week, but when i weighed myself it showed me 1pound weight gain.
I have been taking this for about 3 weeks now. I finally bought a cinnamon spice tea from the health food store. I have added additional cinnamon but I can see why you you would want to strain. I think it is just a matter of choice. Especially the organic raw.
I read somewhere that someone just took a teaspoon of honey before bed and lost weight. Think it was off a link on this forum. I did not measure or weigh myself but I do feel lighter and believe my arms and shoulders are firming up as well as thighs.
It has only been about 3 weeks though. I am sure exercise would help it along quicker. If you are feeling sick maybe you should cut down on the cinnamon and gradually add more as you go along. Some stomachs are more sensitive to spices. And it is a strong spice, I can feel a little burn when I have cinnamon honey toast. I did read somewhere NOT to add lemon. But I did find that people also use honey and lemon water for energy and also to loose weight.
I am not sure what the lime would do to the effects of cinnamon if anything. I guess you would just have to try it and see unless someone else posts their experiences with it.
It has the same weight loss effect as the acid breaks down the fat by combating the alkaline in the body. Hence reducing the amount of fat stored in the body. Well, today marks 2 weeks of trying cinnamon honey to lose weight. I am probably some weird phenomenon that cannot lose the weight on this diet while everyone else can. Well,, I would like to thank you for this site.
I did spend some time reading all the questions and answers. I personally feel there are too many repetive questions. Maybe, one should read this site fully before asking a question which has already been posted…. Yes, I have weighed kilos and after taking this mixture Monday to Friday. I just did not take it on the the weekends. So you calculate the difference……. I would be confident in saying it works.
I do not like doing exercise and too busy, so cannot go for walks…. I eat normal foods, try not to take too much oil and eat foods like any normal person would eat…. Once I reach my achieved weight. Do I still take this mixture or will I keep loosing weight. Which means I may become just too thin……. And once I stop this mixture will I then put on the weight I have lost. Please let me know…..
Hi Becky, If you like the taste of it keep doing it a bit longer. Give it a month. If you counted calories and started the gym again it may give an additional boost. I know that cinnamon speeds up metabolism and honey is just good in every way… I definitely need to start this drink soon.
You will probably have to visit a health food store to find it. This makes the cinnamon stronger and also allows the water to cool some. Then add the raw honey after 30 minutes.
If you add the honey earlier, it will lose its effectiveness because the heat of the water will make the enzymes in the honey inactive. Do NOT reheat the mixure in the a. I had a colonoscopy 6 months ago and also have used other colon cleasing products. I noticed nothing the first two days, but on day three, I began going to the bathroom a lot more and began losing weight. More than weight, you can expect to lose inches- assuming you have a tummy to lose. If it worked for me, it should work for you!
Thank you Susan for clarifying the instructions. I started using the cinnamon and honey on Sunday. I had the stomach cramps for two days. Now I am ok. I have lost weight already. I will wait a month and then I will send my measurements. Is it really working for everyone? How much weight has everyone lost? I have been taking this for a month and I DO love it.
I started noticing results after 2 weeks. I also had a few itchy bumps like hives. I did a research and found that too much cinnamon can cause skin irritations on some sensitive people although I do not consider myself sensitive. Two others I know drinking this also had rash or bumps. We figured it was the cinnamon and I think we were just taking too much. I was taking boxed cinnamon tea from the health food store and using my own cinnamon powder drink at night. I ran out of tea so I just cut off the cinnamon for a couple of days.
The bumps have dried up. I will begin again when the tea comes back in stock, this time more slowly with just the cinnamon tea and gradually work up. I liked the results way too much to quit. Plus it has so many other health benefits. I used this mixture for more then 3 weeks.
But my scale is not ready to show few lines down. I want to try this drink but the problem is that I do not have a coffee filter. Can I just strain it? And I also got to know from a site that pouring hot water in the honey will kill the nutrients, so do it after it cools down.
The information I have for mixing the drink is as follows. Drink half a cup in the moring 30min. It is not advisable to pour the boiling water over the honey, it kills the enzyms that are required to reduce the fat in your body. What I do is make the drink in the night. By first placing a teaspoon of cinnamon in a large cup and then pouring in the hot water from the hot water jug, then cover it and let is rest for about 30 min then stir in a teaspoon of honey….
By that time it has cooled down.. Drink half that cup in the night after dinner and the balance half cup half an hour before breakfast….. How is it used? I have started using honey cinnamon. Will share my experience in a month. I am from India and 10 kg over weight. Just come back here on that date and you will find my honest answer. Please make sure that you only use real cinnamon and not Cassia.
Research has shown that the high contect of coumarin in Cassia can be toxic. I started this doing exacly the way it say to do it at the top of the page. And i have lost 3 pounds in 5 days. Knowing what it takes for me to lose weight i did not think this would work. While this does not mean you can over eat i have been keeping track and have ate between to calories a day and walking one mile.
Which seems to be minamum compared to what i usually have to do to lose weight. I still have 10 pounds to lose and will continue drinking the tea i think its great and it works very well. Shireen,Room temp is fine the other half you drink before bed you will find is on the cold side and that also is fine. Cassia is reddish brown in color and cinnamon is more of a brown. Cassia is mainly sold in the United states at the supermarkets you think your getting real cinnamon but its mainly Cassia.
If this creates a problem for you i would go to a health food store and they should have it there. Whoever has got result, can u please inform us whether it worked for you and share the information that how you made the paste.
Some say, we have to mix both honey and cinnamon followed by hot water. But, some say, that honey shld not be mixed in hot water. What reaction you get after taking this mixture? How long time this reaction stays? Jo, I believe it will affect you breastfeeding your infant. After doing alot of research on this tea and yes i have lost weight useing it. I quit drinking it because i found out that this tea acts as a laxative stripping you of all your vitamins in your body.
It is ok to drink once in awhile but to drink it over a long period of time it can cause damage to your insides. As i posted earlier it does work but not in a healthy way. I will try it for a week, just to see how much I can lose. I did read your entry about your weight lost. How much have you currently lost and how long have you been doing it? If I have start drink honey and chinnamon for weight loss, will it reduce the entire body weight including the muscles which I build during gym exercise or will it only reduce the fat in the body?
I started drinking the Honey and Cinnamon drink nearly 2 weeks ago. I have noticed other things than the weight loss which make it worth the hassle in itself. My brain seems to be functioning better. Cinnamon has been proved to increase brain activity and I can vouch that this is true. You must also buy the correct type of honey and cinnamon.
Raw honey is essential. It must be raw. Raw honey has never been heated and therefore still contains all the good bits this drink requires. I found my local health food shop sold nether, and looked at me funny when I asked about them. I have benn drinking this cinnamon honey tea for past two days one time. I had gestational diabeties 2 years and i was fine after i had baby. Hi scott It is good to see that the honey and cinnamon is working excellent for you. Could you please tell me if you should have it twice a day and how long before breakfast and evening should you take it.
I am planning to try this again. I used it for a bladder infection that was not clearing up with antibiotics. However, there is some concern from the FDA about the overuse of cassia cinnamon—it is banned in several countries in Europe.
Cassia cinnamon is what is sold in US stores as cinnamon. You can check the internet regarding coumarin to see info on this. I have ordered Ceylon cinnamon from Savory Spice Shop to use instead. If you have any type of liver disease—be extremely cautious about using this method of weight loss.
I do not know what type of cinnamon was used in the research study. Just to clarify my last post—I just noticed that Scott stressed that one use Ceylon cinnamon—but did not say why. Cassia cinnamon contains couramin which should not be used in large amounts. Ceylon cinnamon is ok because it has very little couramin. There is a company on the internet that ships ceylon cinnamon from overseas, in addition to the Colorado company I ordered from.
Ceylon cinnamon sticks are also sold on several sites. He travels all over the US with his bees according to seasons. Thanks for your reply and sorry for the delay. Let me try this drink and inform you on my Feedback. I was planning to have the drink for a little longer than that! How tall are you? You have to be careful not to blow the cinnamon off … or you can can really carefully mix it and make a nice paste on the toast.
I have been drinking this mixture of cinnamona and honey for more than a month and I am disappointed that I did not lose weight at all.
Some say that they started losing weight within one or two weeks of drinking this mixture but even after more than a month results are nil for me. And I am also doing exercises along with that and inspite of that no effect at all for me. Can anyone explain why it is like that for me.
Or may be if I do like what Cathy Hellesto says eating this mixture with the bread toast than with water it may give effect. I have been doing this for 2 months. I have to admit it is a very slow but steady weight loss.
Usually I would notice weight loss in the thighs and hips first. My thighs have no loss at all but my shirts do fit much better. My bras loosened up quite a bit. It is worth it, because it is cheap and safe. You just have to be committed and take it faithfully. I just take tea in the morning and a teaspoon of honey at night by itself. It is a very slow process it seems but it is working, I just wish it would have been faster.
Exercise would probably help a bunch. So check other areas on your body other than your jeans. I bought the kodumpuli from our indian store here and eat one fruit with meal, twice a day. The taste really sucks , but i want to lose some weight so i just eat it. After reading all the postive comments. I have decided to start my journey on cinnamon honey drink. My BMI is about I need to lose at least 25 kg. Will everyone posted on my result after 1 month.
Can I put honey and cinnamon mixture in hot drinkable water and can I drink immediately after mixing. And at night should I drink cold without making it hot again. This is also why you should not put the honey directly into the boiling water. The cinnamon will react better with the unpasteurized honey in a more potent way. Note that you can not purchase unpasteurized honey in grocery stores etc…you can find it in most farmers markets. Also do not reheat the mixture for the same reason as I mentioned above.
Drink it either room temperature or straight from the fridge. Hii I am really excited after reading this.. I am going to start this today night.
But I have a doubt. Some one has mentioned that adding hot water to honey will destoy the enzymes and nutrients and suggested to add hot water to cinnamon.. Add the honey to the steeped cinnamon. The temperature of the water will have cooled down enough to not affect the honey. It is ok to drink while still warm but when you drink the last half the following morning do NOT reheat.
In Singapore where can I get this beside order it online? All positive comments are helping a lot of us to catch our dreams. Thanks for the response Connie. As I told I took it two times last night and this morning. I will definitely share my experience. Hi, I am really excited about cinnamon and raw honey. Can someone help me please what should I do? I have been taking this drink since two months but didnt find much difference in weightloss.
I want to lose atleast 3 or 4 kgs. I do exercise and eat regularly. But I guess, the result is vary in people. IMHO, to measure this mix success not just weight.
It is two months since I started drinking this cinnamon honey mixture but I am disappointed that I didnt lose not even one kg though I strictly followed the procedure as mentioned here. I dont know whether to continue drinking this for some more time to see the results.
I want to reduce atleast three or four kgs. Instead of using the cinnamon powder though I use the cinnamon sticks… Much easier on the kidneys. Also works wonders on diabetes and high cholesterol. I am interested in tyring this diet but I need to know what type of Honey works best? Does it have to be like Grade A or Organic? I tried the drink for 3 weeks and instead of losing gained 4 lbs and about to stop drinking the tea, then somebody told me that if you want to lose weight drink it ONLY before going to bed NOT in the morning.
Drinking it in the mrning add to the calories just like other foods. If I lose more I will let you know. Better use Ceylon cinnamon. Please update all of us bout ur progress after drinking thix mix.
I ordered the stick form Ceylon cinnamon, I was wondering if it could be boiled to make the tea and kept in the frig and add the honey as you drink it. If so how much water to a stick. Also my mom said I should just take a spoon of honey 3 times a day? What if you just ate the honey and cinnamon mixture without water?
Would it still be good? Or even drank hot water after it? Cause when I had a sore throat my grandma told me to eat honey then drink hot water to get it all down. Hi Kali, so nice to hear your good news? What kind of cinnamon do you take. It has been 3 days by now, i feel good but have been visiting loo quite often. Also i take normal cinnamon and Feaster Honey which i got in general department store, i reside in Bangalore, India. Good to hear this from you, i had been doing this 3 months back.
I used to eat mixture of honey with cinnamon power and then drink luke warm water. Doing this i used to easily swollow it rather than drinking water which contains honey and cinnamon. I dont like drinking this health drink, even i prefer swallowing the mixture…. If its not working please follow the instructions given by Kali, it might work for you too. Now i need to reduce 17kgs….. I can still see my post I have posted on June 3rd, , that I am going to start on that day..
Hello I have to do special diet plus exercise too, because I try this for a weeks but nothing happens thank you. Sorry for not being able to answer your questions for so long, but I had an accident and had to spend some time in a hospital. I am OK now and I am ready to answer all your questions. November 10th, at 5: To Janet, The drink should look more like water and you can filter it with a normal not too dense strainer. To Minx, Yes, you can have the mixture cold in the morning.
To Jay, No there are no harmful effects of drinking the honey and cinnamon drink without filtering. To Pat Lykins, Yes, you can boil the cinnamon sticks. As for the amount of water it depends on the amount or cinnamon powder you can get from a single stick. Make a test and grind one stick to see how many cinnamon powder tbsp you get from it — use water according to that amount.
Thank you ALL, for your interest and patience. I hope I will be seeing you around often. Best of Luck to Everyone. Hallo Galia Ivanova Nice to see Your messages after a long time. I hope you will clear my doubts. I took this cinnamon and honey mixture for two months but no change in my weight though i followed the procedure as told by you.
I am unhappy about it. If I take ceylon cinnamon will it be effective and is it necessary to get unpasteurized honey. Nice to know you are doing well. I have taken this mixture for a month and have lost no weight.
What would you suggest. Hi Galia, I took this mixture for a month and lost 7 kgs. I have not put on the weight. But if I start taking the mixture again will I loose anymore weight. I started this drink a little over a week ago. It was a terrible pain. I did not take it Mon. Is this something that needs to happen before I start losing? Why would I be expanding?
Heyy Galia, i was just wondering how much does a one cup need to be? Hey Galia, i just read a comment that said that the person gained weight after stopping with this weight loss method… so i was just wondering is there any way to prevent that from happening?
I had this stomach expanding problem. This drink gave me energy in the mornings, so I did not want to stop it. Then I started taking yogurt with dinner, to control my expanding stomach. I think that is working. Now it is better. Also I have noticed that if you do light exercise , like walking , you lose weight much faster than before with this drink. Also my skin has a glow, earlier it was dry.
FYI…you need to use raw, unpasturized honey. Putting raw honey in hot water can destroy the enzymes as well. So, get raw honey, add it and the cinnamon to lukewarm water and enjoy.
I do not want to stop drinking it. I do see some great results minus the expanding stomach. My husband lost approx. Cinnamon and Honey formula for weight loss: This should be prepared at night before going to bed.
Use 1 part cinnamon to 2 parts raw honey. Add honey now that it has cooled. Never add honey when it is hot as the heat will destroy the enzymes and other nutrients in the raw honey.
In the morning drink the other half that you refirgerated…but do not re-heat it…drink it cold or at room temp only. Do not add anything else to this recipe. No lemon, no lime, no vinegar. It is not necessary to drink it more time in a day…it is only effective on an empty stomach and primarily at night. This works for most people. Inches are lost before any measurement on the scales. This program will cause significant inches lost…but you will reach a plateau and may not lose anymore.
This is because the cinnamon and honey cause a cleansing effect in the digestive tract and cleans out parasites and other fungus and bacteria that slow down the digestion…causing a toxic build up. Lowers pH Once this is all cleaned out then you will most likely have the weight loss slow down. Other side effects from a cleansing can occur because of toxins being released…if this occurs, cut back on how much you use or take a break.
Hi, i have been reading about the cinamon as the magic spice for weight loss. ONe imp question, since i am not allowed any sweeteners due to diabetes, will the cinamon work on its own??? As I am not a doctor, I cannot advise you to take or not to the drink. You must consult your doctor treating you for diabetes if honey is good for you to take it twice a day. I know the cinnamon is good for diabetics and the honey raw is better for diabetics than white sugar.
Even if the honey requires lower levels of insulin compared to regular white sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels as rapidly as white sugar, it is essential for all diabetics to consult with their doctor prior starting to take honey on their own.
It is important that every diabetic ask their doctor how much honey a day is OK. Am having a kind of sick feeling! Dont feel like having food properly. And the whole day, I will be feeling some kind of guidiness! Dear Galia Ivanova, Can you please clear my doubt. Is it necessary to use only raw honey? And can cinnamon drink can be taken without adding honey? After reviewing all the responses above,it seems a lot want to change the recipe.
I suggest everyone just follow the program, otherwise may affect the outcome. Hi Weight losers Can any one say if this mixture will work for people with stress related problems. Because of stress you do put lot of weight and you sugar level varies. Since previous messages tells that this mixture lowers the sugsr level. Or does this give a good balance of sugar level.
Hi, I am Jane from Nigeria I have been taking cinnamon powder and honey for almost 3 weeks now but no changes maybe am not taking it in the proper way pls. Some months ago I started eating instant oatmeal with one teaspoon of Splenda added to it and powdered cinnamon. I have eaten this every morning from Monday-Friday for a couple of months now. I work full time and this is an easy breakfast option for me. I have now lost close to 24 pounds and just until recently, did I realize that it was probably the cinnamon that was aiding in my weight loss.
I do not add honey as posted on this blog. All I add is 1 package of instant oatmeal, 1 teaspoon of splenda, and about 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon and add hot water to the oatmeal. I do not add milk to this, only water. I do not measure the cinnamon, but do put plenty of it in the oatmeal. I boil only the cinamon and add honey after filtered. Since I use raw local honey the polen and propolis in it is better for you. You are doing a great job dear keep it up. Just an FYI, you will find this process will work better if you add the cinnamon to the boiling water first by itself, letting it steep for a 20 minutes and then adding the honey.
Adding the honey after the water has cooled will keep all the active ingredients from being degraded or destroyed altogether — honey should never be boiled, cooked or baked with as some toxic substances can be created. At the very least, you will lower the potency of the honey by heating it hence, unpasteurized honey is better than pasteurized. If you make it in the morning then you will drink it warm in the morning and cold in the evening I do not recommend to heat it in the microwave because of the honey in it.
If you make it in the evening like I do then you will drink it warm in before bed and cold in the morning. I had heard about this diet from another friend. I did research on using the right cinnamon and the correct honey. While using the other cinnamon and honey, I did lose 3 pounds. I hope it still continues. While I have been having fun with your posts for a new solution to my weight problem, I wish to ask: You know, after waiting for 30 minutes for it to cool down.
I just want to know just to be sure I am not missing out anything. Thanks and keep up the good work. Supermarket bought honey will not work. You can get the raw honey at any natural food store i. Wow, after reading this, I feel inspired to try it. Hi, I am starting this diet today and I was wondering if I can only use cinnamon and water, and no honey? Hey, Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
Also, I have to say my skin has significanty improved. Ive been taking the mixture for about nine days, and though I havent lost any weight, my skin is great. I actually have normal skin now, can u believe it.
I have always had oily skin Im 28 now , and nothing has ever worked. Most pleasant scent on the planet? My favourite thing above everything else? Hi everyone, I ran across this forum when I was researching the amount of honey and cinnamon to use. I got an email with the info that it is good for weight loss and have been drinking it for 2 days now. I am a nurse and have studied natural health and wellness for years.
I have told many people with diabetes about the blood sugar leveling factor in cinnamon and it has always seemed to help them. Also since cinnamon is a metabolic stimulator it makes sense it would work for weight loss. I just found out that it might also work for high cholesterol. I do know that it is a germ fighter and very good for people with allergies and other immune deficiency problems. But you do have to buy the raw stuff definitely not the processed stuff you get at most grocery stores.
I hope to hear great results from everyone here. I started using Honey and Cinnamon 4 days ago.. To all those who lost weight using Honey and Cinnamon… How long did it take you to start losing weight?? I am doing this for the health factor as much as the weight loss.
I will keep you posted. Im planning on buying cinnamon capsule, should i exclude the cinnamon on the mixture to prevent overdose?? I just began using the Honey-Cinnamon drink before breakfast and again at night just prior to bed time. I have noticed that I am constantly getting up to go to the bathroom during the night and am wondering if this drink is acting as a diauretic. Hi Galia, i want to start the process…. Is it possible to make cinnamon water for say two cups first n then take only one cup n add honey to drink n then next time reheat the cinnamon water n then add honey.
In that case the we r heating the cinnamon water without the honey every time. I have start it in 2 weeks and the sad story is my weight keep on increase and now I did accumulate 3 kg in 2 weeks, so horrible. I am from Bangalore. Can someone tell me where do I get Ceylon cinnamon and raw honey in Bangalore? But tonight will be perfect. My target weight is lbs from lbs. Boil 1 cup…that is 8 oz of water. Mix the cinnamon and honey in the cup and make a paste.
Add the boiling water and cover the cup for half an hour. Stir the mixture water and filter it. I boil a tea cup of water in the microwave until it starts to babble 2. At the same time I mix the cinnamon and honey in another cup and stir for about 1 min until it turns into paste 3.
Then I poor the boiling water into the cup with honey and cinnamon paste and stir until the honey dissolves 4. Cover it for half an hour and then drink the half before go to bed. Do I have to mix the cinnamon and honey with water? Can I just mix a teaspoon of each honey and cinnamon and just eat it like that without the water?
I think exact amounts of water or honey are not important, but that is just my belief. There probably is no one right way, but I would stress NOT to add boiling water to the honey. Just start trying it! Perhaps people have lost weight different methods. The important thing is to have the honey and cinnamon. I add green tea just for my own added benefit, as greet tea is good for weight loss as well among other things Good luck! I then drain the cinnamon paste to make 1 cup of cinnamon water and i refrigerate i tolerate the taste better this way.
And do the same in a. I watch my caloric intake and excercise regularly. Has any one got results with processed honey here?
I believe with processed one results are not as effective as raw one. Hard to find unless you go to a health store. The only way to ensure that you lose weight is to take exercise times per week for at least 20 minutes, this could be a brisk walk or a light class and to combine this with a healthy diet.
Cut out snacks, sauces, refined sugar and replace white carbohydrates with wholemeal alternatives. Sorry to rain on your parade ladies, but this honey and cinammon drink has no scientifically proven weight loss results or health benefits. In fact, the honey in the drink may contribute to weight gain if it is taken in large quatities as it is pure sugar; containing around 30 calories in each 5ml. Regular exercise and a diet which is high in unprocessed and raw vegetables will be beneficial for health and will definitely.
There are no easy, quick and healthy shortcuts to weight loss. Weight loss has not always been a problem for me, but now that i am over forty I am having trouble with my weight. I am visiting different review sites trying to decide which weight loss program to engage in. I tried this over the weekend and woke up each morning with mouth sores and swelling of the inside of my mouth.
Anyone else experienced this? Is this an allergic reaction to cinnamon? Can I just make a paste of honey 1 teaspoon one lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and eat it. Will it help me in loosing weight. I started honey and cinnamon drink but i dont know currectly how much of water we use for preparing that honey cinnamon mixture plz tell correct scale use of water its ml or ml or ml. Am I making this wrong or is it suppose to be thick and nasty? I guess I was under the assumption that it was suppose to look kind of like tea.
Tried the cinnamon and honey drink for a week now and discovered my flat belly. Amazingly, my pimples has also reduced to a certain extent. Do keep a close watch on what you are eating. Loosing wieght is never easy. You need to sacrifice a lot of things to look good. This only works if ou use active honey and that is honey with active enzymes.
Any form of heat will destroy the enzymes that do the work for you. So I mix like this:. Mix in 2 teaspoons of honey and mix with enough cold water to make up 1 cup. Drink half 30 mins before breakfast in the morning and the other half before bed at night. Yum it tastes wonderful. There have been numerous studies done, that have determined that cinnamon has beneficial effects to the human body. Cinnamon does not only taste good, it also contains many health benefits such as: In laboratory tests, growth of yeasts that were resistant to the commonly used anti-fungal medication fluconazole was often though not always stopped by cinnamon extracts.
I do not know if I agree that putting honey with it has any weight loss benefits to the body, however, when I use honey it increases my desire to ingest more sugar. Honey is pure sugar and can, have an opposite effect. Instead put cinnamon into a protein shake, or sprinkle cinnamon on oatmeal. There are alot of other ways to get the benefits from cinnamon without all of that sugar.
Also, a healthy immune system can contribute to a consider amount of healthy natural weight loss. So be careful what you put in your stomach. As I was unable to find an article providing suitable information on how to use a cinnamon and honey tea effectively, nor explaining why it can work, I did some research into its properties to discover this for myself.
For anyone interested, I have written an article explaining how it works and how to use it effectively that can be read at:. Wondering what is the average time of losing weight? I would like to know if you can use the cinnamon and honey for different things ie: For 2 months now i tried using the honey and cinnamon as recommended but instead of losing weight i gaind 2 pound.
I am suffering from overweight problem. I tried lots of Home made tips but the results was not effective. I wish this tip will work in reducing weight. As I have heard about honey and cinnamon, they are very helpful and effective for health. Hi, Shall i prepare the quantity for 2 times? I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all. I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all.
I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order.
I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it! I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there!
We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received. We will be looking into this and reaching out soon. I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses. I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal. I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future.
We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program! For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs.
My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment. We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up. We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues.
We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon. I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks. Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible.
I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read. I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions. This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program. Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland.
Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland. Shakes made me sick. Emails were only to sell more. Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic.
We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon. This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email. The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try.
In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review. I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy.
In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others. I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase.
They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes. When the food shipment arrived, most of the frozen breakfast items were broken into small bits; when I opened the packages, the bits fell out. Then I tried the frozen lunches. Since I take these to work, the only heating option is microwave. Anything with bread or chicken comes out chewy, gooey, and icy cold in the center. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected.
I am very careful when reading agreements, and for this item to be overlooked was no easy feat. Fineprint at the end will do that to you.
To add insult to injury, the obnoxious customer service person on the phone refused to accept my cancellation until she badgered me with questions and hard sell tactics in a desperate attempt to keep me buying their awful food. Overall, this was a horrible experience. I will never use or recommend Nutrisystem again. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience with the delivery of your foods, the food itself, and the representative you dealt with. We will be taking a peek at your account and reaching out soon.
Was not satisfied with the taste of most of the foods, had to throw it away and buy something else, and most of the desserts had an ok flavor, And a lot of meals with cheese. I was not happy with that. My first order included items I didn't order and one that I'm allergic to its ingredients. I was told by one person the items were probably substitutions and when ready they would be replaced.
When I called the customer service lady was very rude, basically stated I was lying and wouldn't allow me to speak to a supervisor. I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service. Went thru a few months of products. Following it closely and exercised Sent email to customer support and I was told to think of it as not wasted but I received nutritional food with fiber Now I know why it only got one star.
Weight loss system worksstale product and no one to answer to except counselors with no control. I emailed three correspondences to FIVE different departments only to receive a notice that they don't reply to emails because they were too busy. I also included to them pictures of the moldy carrot cake, along with the packaging that states the date is still okay.
The oatmeal is so stale it sticks to the side of the package and had to pour hot water in the bag to get the product out. Chocolate covered pretzels are stale. We did call and the rep was very nice and stated that she couldn't do anything except replace our stale food. How many packages were bad? I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many! Doesn't anyone there want to see a photo of the stale food?
Does anyone there care? VERY poor about keeping the customer happy, however, are not timid about selling you the program. Shame on you, Nutrisystem. We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. We will be reviewing your account and reaching out soon. I am not sure why in today's time of electronics that it takes so long to get the information. We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to receive the information you needed for the program.
We will be reaching out shortly. Pleased with the conversation with my counselor. I feel I have a better handle on what I should be doing. I am looking forward to losing the weight I have set my goal for. Thank you very much for your help. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help! I wrote in with a few complaints about some of the food I received; some broken food, bags not sealed and crushed muffins. Allison was very helpful and courteous and was able to change my mood.
Thank you Allison for being pleasant and helpful. Thank you for the kind words! We will be sure to pass this compliment onto Allison. Keep up the excellent work on the program, Chris! I didn't know this when I originally call to cancel my account. Not that I like it, I understand that it was to be paid now. I was on hold for several minutes and when he finally came back he proceeded to tell me that his supervisor was at lunch and would called me back when she returned, "Oh and by the way here's your confirmation for your cancellation".
At that time I received an email from my PayPal account, advising me that I just made a payment to Nutrisystem. The man had the nerve to charge my account while he had me on hold.
I have called every day, each rep has told me what he did was ok. This is so sad, that he could do this behind my back and it be ok. My call is being reviewed now sure it is but, we all know how this is going to end. I will continue to call each day until I get a callback. He knew what he was doing was wrong, why else would he have to sneak and charge me. I want an apology and someone to tell me what he did was wrong! If I were Marie Osmond, I wouldn't want to be known as a spokesperson for a company that has such bad reviews.
BBB alone has 99 bad reviews and I am getting ready to add another. I guess that wasn't necessary to be said. We are sad to hear about the way you were treated when calling. This is NOT okay. After the 3rd call to NutriSystem about a late order, Beth finally came online and made a return customer — yet again — out of me. We are so happy to hear that Beth was able to straighten things out for you.
We wish you continued success on and off the program. Rachel was very helpful in helping me to better understand my needs while on the plan and I am very thankful for her professionalism. So far I am enjoying being on Nutrisystem. All of the food does taste very good. The only negative thing is that when I first order they did not tell me that there was so much chocolate in the turbo box. I specifically requested no chocolate.
Maybe training is advisable for people helping people to order food. Thank you very much. We are so happy that Rachel was able to help you get started on the program. We are sorry that you received so much chocolate after requesting no chocolate.
We will be sure to pass this along for coaching. Best wishes as you continue on the program. I have been overcharged. Counselors at Nutrisystem keep telling me the issue has been addressed but I do not receive a refund.
This is very upsetting and seems to me to be a bit fraudulent. Please refund my money! We are sorry to hear the NuMi promotion fell off after placing the order. I have been on the Women's Uniquely Yours Program for 13 months, and have lost over 90 pounds.
The frozen food is amazing, and I was never hungry or felt deprived. The delicious snacks and double chocolate muffins have kept me satisfied and I never felt deprived. Thank you for the kind words and keep up the awesome work! Canadian turkey bacon egg and cheese muffin missing cheese - Thank you for the response. I did not to think to take a picture of the back with the information.
If this occurs on the next I will. The cheese was missing on two of the sandwiches out of four on this order. I was trying to explain to the last counselor that I spoke to what was happening to me with eating the food and that it was making me sick.
This is not in regards to Kim in returns. Kim was helpful and very nice to me. Anyway, the last counselor I spoke to was so rude and talked over me and would not let me finish my sentence. It's really upsetting that I did not write her name down. It would be the counselor that I spoke to before I spoke to Kim. We are so sorry that you had such a poor experience. We will definitely be looking into this and reaching out soon. I had a question about my food.
Chat with your counselor. Very helpful but our chat was interrupted. I need to know how to continue after the first week.
I am still confused on how to continue after the first week. Thank you for reaching out. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience team to reach out and assist you.
The quality of food was pretty good with several options to choose from. Unfortunately when they were out of stock they substituted other food! Changing your plan such as delivery frequency was very difficult and why I left. Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry that you left for those reason. We will be reaching out to get further information. Have a good one! Over the last several months, I have tried over and over to resolve an ongoing problem with order fulfillment.
Customer service refused to help and refused my repeated requests to escalate the issue and finally Nutrisystem decided to dump me. Even in my last e-mail communication with Nutrisystem where I yet again outlined the problem, the reply back from Nutrisystem completely ignored the majority of what I wrote. It looks like if Nutrisystem doesn't say anything about the problem, then it magically doesn't exist somehow.
