Weight Loss

WEIGHT LOSS:
Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

The formula for honey and cinnamon for weight loss is ubiquitous.

   1. Use honey and cinnamon in a 1:2 ratio (one part cinnamon, two parts honey)
   2. Put the cinnamon in a cup or bowl.
   3. Boil one cup of water.
   4. Pour water over the cinnamon and let it steep for 30 minutes.
   5. Once the liquid has cooled, add honey. Always add honey to the cooled liquid – hot liquid will destroy the enzymes in the raw honey.
   6. Drink half of the resulting “tea” before going to bed. Cover and refrigerate the rest.
   7. Drink the other half first thing in the morning.
   8. Do not add anything to the recipe. Only drink on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning and right before bed.

Typical claims of benefits that you will find for drinking this concoction include:

   1. Inches will be lost before you will notice the scale creeping downward.
   2. The cinnamon and honey cleanses parasites, fungus and bacteria out of the digestive tract.
   3. You may experience side effects due to the release of toxicity.
   4. You may experience increased energy, better sex drive and a better mood.
   5. The formula will block your body from gaining fat.

Anyone going to try it?

hi i want to try this tea , my question is how much you add of each exacly pls let me know

melissaw72

Here is some more detailed info:

Cinnamon and Honey formula for weight loss:
This should be prepared at night before going to bed.

1. Use 1 part cinnamon to 2 parts raw honey. 1/2 tsp cinnamon to 1 tsp honey is recommended but can use more or less as long as in the ratio of 1 to 2. --- so 1 tsp cinnamon to 2 tsp raw honey is ok too as an example.

2. Boil 1 cup...that is 8 oz of water.

3. Pour water over cinnamon and cover and let it steep for 1/2 hour..(30 minutes)

4. 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.

5. Drink 1/2 of this directly before going to bed. The other 1/2 should be covered and refrigerated.

6. 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.

Honey and peanut butter sandwiches are THE best.  Also instead of cinnamon and sugar on toast, avoid the butter/margarine and use honey instead with the ciinamon.

Melissa.

Lexi Lee

I think I'll give it a try, will let you know.  ~ Lexi ~

melissaw72

I'm trying it too, but just eating cinnamon with honey with anything it can go with.  I may try the "tea" when I  reach that plateau of losing weight.

Melissa.

cinny69

I think I am going to give this a try tonight and see what happens. My husband may think I am strange but oh well. lol 

bawakaumi

hi melissa am 28 year old living in nigeria i had a problem of over weight i just read your formular of honey and cinnamon.i just want to know what is cinnamon what those it look like or you can seen me picture am really interested in it.thanks 

melissaw72

Cinnamon is a spice.  It's brown and kind of powdery-like (ground).  They come in stores in the spice section.  They also come as cinnamon sticks.

Scroll down the page, on the right side you will see what cinnamon looks like.

I want to try this but I have a question. Do you only drink half a cup at a time or can you drink more? also is it normal for the cinnamon to get thick at the bottom of the cup after its been sitting? can you please let me know thank you.

melissaw72

Hi, I only drank what they said to drink at a time (1/2 cup at a time).  I'm not sure if more will make things work faster or different if you drink more at a time.  Yes, for me the cinnamon got thick on the bottom, but only after it had been sitting overnight.  When I did this I didn't do it every night, but did it some nights, couldn't tell much difference other than when I was eating like a pig I didn't gain any weight from it; not sure iff the cinnamon and honey contributed or not to that.

Melissa.

Libba

It is confusing to me, not knowing who you are, Melissa. Perhaps I missed something somewhere giving your qualifications. I would like to know what the doctors think of this honey and cinnamon diet. Do they say that both the diet and all those remedies work or not or the jury is still out? Are you also a doctor who has checked the research on this?

Can you give a URL for the above?

Thanks for clarifying this for us.

melissaw72

Hi, I gave all the URLs above in blue, including in some of the posts.  I don't know if it is a definite thing, hence the URLs I found on the internet that I thought people would be interested in.  My qualifications are of a regular person.  I found this info on the internet.  Nothing else.  I don't know if DRs approved it or there were studies done.  It's like anyone, including you, finding something on the internet and blogging about it.  I have no clue as how to answer your post any other way.

WARNING TO ALL: I cannot see the name I am addressing this to while writing this, something like Shamahboob, who said something like "No harm done," but this is a warning to all. I read or heard somewhere that pregnant women should not take cinnamon in these kind of quantities. Normal seasoning of foods is apparently fine. And you never give honey to a baby under a certain age. So we do have to be responsible on these matters.

I checked the original source of the Honey and Cinnamon diet, and the source I had looks like a tabloid to me, so I do not trust it. I have heard the doctors talk about the benefits of cinnamon and the benefits of honey, but not this diet. I know the Bible says something about using a LITTLE honey. Adelle Davis says people gain weight from use of honey. So I think the quantity of the cinnamon and honey is important.

Thanks for sharing Melissa.  I need to copy this down.  I need all the help I can get  LOL  TTYL  :0

LIBBA ... you wrote, "I have heard the doctors talk about the benefits of cinnamon and the benefits of honey, but not this diet."

I NEVER said this was a diet!  Just something I found on the internet that I thought people would be interested in, as something to AID IN weight loss.

Hi, can i use cinnanom powder and honey that you buy in groceries? Thanks!

 

melissaw72

Yes, you can.  That's is what I experimented with.

tdahl390

Interesting potion! I wonder if you can mix it with other ingredients, or put it into a smoothie. Anyone know?

missmaura

Not to say that there aren't benefits to the age-old tradition of eating cinnamon and honey, but I believe additional documentation is needed for the above claim. According to Snopes (specifically http://www.snopes.com/medical/homecure/honey.asp) a longer version of the passage has been circulating since 1995. I first saw it as a Facebook post yesterday. I checked it out on Snopes to find it was once a periodical article and then it was circulated as an e-mail.

 

melissaw72

tdahl390 ... I also put them in other things like smoothies.  Not so much the cinnamon, but yes to the honey.

missmaura ... the documentation is the link highlighted in blue at the end of the blog.  Whether it needs additional documentaion or not, idk. I'm not an expert on this; just thought it was interesting and thought I'd share it with others.

Melissa.

lorikins

Hi, just wondering about this cinnamon and honey thing. Is any kind of honey ok? I have pure liquid honey(thats what is says on the bottle) is this ok?

jenniw2003

Hi, I have heard about the cinnamon and honey tea a while back but I, just recently, am trying it.  I was wondering if there is really a need to boil the water 1st or what the need for that was?  I know heat kills all the good enzymes so why not just use luke warm water in the 1st place?

cmhhh

I want to know if there is any difference in using ground cinnamon verses liquid cinnamon?  Is one better than the other as far as effects?  With the liquid, what is your recommended dosage?

melissaw72

jenniw ... you have a good point ... #5 says to add honey when the liquid is cooled down.  So adding it to that shouldn't kill any of the good properties (IMO).  Idk why they have you boil water in the first place.  Maybe it is just so you kill all the bacteria in the water?  So, ie, maybe you can use warm bottled water.  I really dont know the answer though to your question though.  It is a really good point.

Melissa.

nmcarrier10

Just wondering, does this actually work, and how long til you see results?

krupa

Hi. I have a question. Can a diabetic too try this weight loss formula.  I think honey is a big no for diabetics. Thanks to confirm

melissaw72

nmcarrier10 ... I think (IMO) it might help a person to lose weight, but is not an actual diet.  Results will mosts likely vary between people.

krupa ... that is a geat question about whether this would be ok for diabetics!  Thanks for asking.  I think you are right about it not being a good idea for diabetics (because of the honey).  Maybe you can consult with your DR or a dietitian to see if there might be alternatives. 

Cinnamon by itself is really good for you, and if you can't have the honey, having the cinnamon (on top of or in things) IMO would be really helpful.  If you google cinnamon and diabetics you'll find many links to the benefits of cinnamon, ie helps with blood glucose control.  Here is one I found:

ybuendia

I am trying the cleanse. Is it ok if I make the tea for the whole week? And how much cinnamon do I use of I do it for the whole week?

melissaw72

Just want you to know it isn't a cleanse, just an adjunct to a diet.  To answer you question,

Use 1 part cinnamon to 2 parts raw honey. 1/2 tsp cinnamon to 1 tsp honey is recommended but can use more or less as long as in the ratio of 1 to 2.

The amount you need for a week depends on how much you want to use. example ... IF you use 1 tsp cinnamon per day, then 7 days (a week) would be 7 tsp.

Melissa.

is there any side effects? will i have to run to the restroom?

Dawn ... good question.  Personally I never had a problem.

I've been drinking this concoction for a month now. It works and I did not experience any side effect.(did not have to run to the bathroom). I do it a different way. I don't boil my water. I use raw honey bought at Whole foods.1 teaspoon in warm water just to dissolve it, sprinkle in the cinnamon (I don't measure the cinnamon) and a little more water, then drink on the spot. The taste of the cinnamon can be overpowering at times, so what works for me is taking it like a shot with 4-6oz of water.

It shrinks the stomach area fast and when I mean fast-- like 2 days of drinking morning and night.and it gives me more enegry, makes me fill fuller and I find myself making my own fruit juice (with a juicer) regularly, juice (green leafy veggies) occasionally and I eat more fish. And have in mind that, I'm someone that can't do without eating red meat in a "Day". I guess the first thing this concoction did was to help me cut off the red meat LOL. I took a week off it to see the difference and I did not gain back but still lost 1lb without it. So yes, the 1st thing you notice is the inches off before the weight on the scale.I use honey for so many things, like hair mask, and face mask. People use cinnamon as spice everyday, people use honey instead of sugar everyday. So why can't I put both it with water and drink huh?

If you feel there is danger in it or if you have other health problems then don't do it. Of course you can't feed Honey to babies under 1 nor pregnant women. I remember when the idea of putting just lemon in water came out. People came out with so many "danger warnings" about how lemon & too much water is bad for you EST.

 I’m 5”3 and my BMI is 28 which need to be between 18.5-24.9(normal for my height). My problem areas are my stomach and arms. And I don’t like the gym

You don’t have to do what I did

Thanks meme2013 for posting!

azntinker

Can I drink this tea with some herbal diet pills ?

melissaw72

azntinker ... idk if diet pills would be ok to take with this (IMO all diet pills are not good to take regardless).  I'm not a DR or anything; you might want to get in touch with yours before trying any kind of diet pill.

Melissa.

azntinker

Ok..one thing I just try tp drink a half cup of honey n cinnamon I wanted to throw up maybe I didnt mix it right probably I use raw honey i mix it in after i left the cinnamon steep for half hr !  

melissaw72

If you used a 1/4 cup of honey that is way too much!  You only need like a tsp of it, with a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, dissolved in the water (about 6 ounces).

Melissa.

Vickygupta31

Honey and cinnamon have been used for ages in India. Both have exceptional qualities. Hardly any side-effects.

hot water is used to bring out all the good properties of cinnamon, and when cooled the honey is added.

heylol

Heyyy... Just a question... Does this thing work for all ages??

heylol

Heyyy... Just a question... Does this thing work for all ages??

Jewels79

So I just started this Honey and Cinnamon tea yesterday. So far so good. I have alot of issues with bloating and since the first night I can tell that problem has reduced. Now my question for everyone is how many have actually shown results in weight loss and belly fat? Im am at a plateu and need to get my belly back down and drop a few pounds. I am going on vacation to FL come July and really want to be bikini ready and not feel embarassed about my mid section. Please post your results THANKS SO MUCH!!!

 

melissaw72

heylol ... I wouldn't recommend this aid in weight loss with children, but otherwise I don't see why it wouldn't work with all other ages.

Melissa.

hunnie82

I wish someone had more info from trying this longer..  I will try this soon. Also saw on fb. I bought ground cinnamon from target and going to use whatever honey I have in my kitchen. Good luck everyone^^

madejo

Hi Melissa,

I read the post about cinnamon & honey and all the comments below. Is it ok to use the cinnamon powder & any honey that we get in the supermarket for this? So if i'm using the cinnamon powder, do I still need to boil the water or just add cinnamon to warm water & then add honey and have it?

In case, I have to use the cinnamon sticks, how cud we measure the 1:2 = Cinnamon:Honey ratio?

Could you please reply. Thank you.

Hi madejo,  yes it is ok to use the cinnamon powder and any honey you buy in the store.  You could use warm water or boil.  The 1:2 part cinnamon to honey is 1/2 tsp cinnamon to 1 tsp honey.

Melissa.

melissaw72

Idk how to measure using cinnamon sticks.

Melissa.

madejo

Hi TheDoctorsBoard1,

Sorry, for the error. Will keep it in mind next time. Thank you.

madejo

Hi Melissa,

Thank you for the quick response. Will give it a try for sure. waiting for the weekend to start.

mmartinezzz

can we use the cinnamon sticks with this recipe or does the cinnamon powder works better n if yes how many sticks to eaqual 1/2 tsp cinnamon

melissaw72

You could use either the cinnamon sticks or the powder, but Idk how to measure using cinnamon sticks; you'd probably need to grind them up, then measure (this is a guess though; I used the powder). 

Melissa.

talkingtothemoon

Hi! I wanted to try this and went to the market to buy honey and cinnamon. But the one I found is cinnamon ground. Is that the same? 

And I work at night. And sleep in the day. How should I take it?

 

Thank You

melissaw72

Ground cinnamon is fine.  About your working schedule I honestly am not sure, but my guess is to take it before breakfast (whenever that may be in the day), and at "night" before sleeping (whenever that may be in the day). 

Melissa.

Ron Ashworth

Please, PLease, Please

Be aware that what is on your store shelves is not real cinnamon. It is Cassia not Ceylon Cinnamon.

The first is an imitation and will be more harmful than effective.

Ceylon is true cinnamon and has all good properties. Please research before you do this. It is a little troublesome to find, but well worth it. You will also find the cinnamon true flavor you have been missing out on. It is much more distinctive and flavorful  ;)

melissaw72

Ron is right ... I just learned this today; please google and do research about the kinds of cinnamon (Cassia vs Ceylon) before using it. 

Melissa.

tiffanytobeyy

i am going on a trip and will not have access to a stove so can i make this in advance in a gallon?

melissaw72

I really don't know how that would work.  Do you have access to a microwave?  I just warm the water up in the microwave like I would tea, then add the cinnamon and honey.

Melissa.

dorina
hello..i tried the formula last and this morning.But i dont take cold things because im asthmatic,so i didnt refrigirate the mixture.Is the mixture good when not refrigirated?does it work the same?
melissaw72

I never refrigerated mine; I just made it warm each time.  I just finished a 2 week time of doing it this way and have lost some weight; so for me it works when it is not cold, and IMO tastes better than it did cold when I originally tried it that way. I had better results this way also, probably because it tasted better and I stuck with it longer.

Melissa.

mcarballo1121

How long after adding the water to the cinnamon do u add the honey n how long after do u drink it

melissaw72

I heated up some water in the microwave in a coffee cup, then added the cinnamon, then honey, then let it cool a little and drank it (not the whole coffee cup but about 1/2 of it).  Then I did the same at night.

Melissa.

mcarballo1121

When drinking the morning dose and cinnamon. Is at the bottom do you stir it before drinking it or do you drink as it is with cinnamon all at the bottom

melissaw72

I mix the cinnamon around, then drink part of it ... so some stays at the bottom while some is still mixed in the water.

Melissa.

will this process be helpful to a 12 year old boy

 

muttukuttan

can a 12 year old boy try this

 

melissaw72

Idk if this would be helpful for a 12 year old boy.

I would definitely ask his pediatrician before starting anything associated with weight loss.

Melissa.

Pat329

I started this just 5 days ago.  No progress to report yet but I do have a few questions.  No matter how long I let the cinnamon steep, it just won't dissolve.  Can I stain the undissolved parts and just drink the 'tea' and still get the same benefit?  Also other than dissolving better in hot water rather than cold, does it really make a difference in drinking it hot or cold? And one last thing, does it really need refrigerated since there's nothing in it that can spoil?  I have also heard that this drink is good for sore joints.  I have bad knees and, hope it's not just my imagination, but they don't seem to be bothering me as much this week!

melissaw72

When I put the cinnamon in the hot water, I let it sit until warm, and you're right, not all dissoves; but some did for me.  I just drank the part that was dissolved in the water and it worked for me.  I don't think it makes a difference whether you drink it hot or cold, but for me I made it with hot water because the cinnamon dissolved better.  I made it separate each time of the day, so I am not sure about the refrigeration (whether it will spoil or not).  To be on the safe side I would personally refrigerate it if I made it all at once and drank 1/2 at a time.

Melissa.

mcarballo1121

Is it okay to drink the entire 8 oz cup at once, each time at night and each time in the morning?

melissaw72

You could drink a cup in the morning and a cup at night, but be careful of the amount of cinnamon you use.  There are different kinds of cinnamon, and some, when used too much, can be toxic to your kidneys and liver.

Lakshmiv

Wow! I finally found  this blog!

Thanks Melissa for starting this blog. I had heard of cinnamon and honey but had not tried it until I read your blog. I created this account just to write about the effects of this concoction. 

I am on the honey cinnamon drink for the last 5 days and right from the second day, I was able to notice changes in my  body. I am not talking about weight loss per se but the positive effect it has on my digestion and bloating issue. I recently underwent a gall stone removal surgery and am still settling in post surgery but the concoction has taken care of the gas and bloating issues I had. In fact, I feel full for long, my stomach feels light at the end of the day and I feel energetic the whole day. 

I make the drink just the way you have posted and I am here to vouch its benefits. Weightloss is not just limited to losing pounds or inches, but it is about maintaining a healthy life style and keeping those lost pounds off your system. Many people have said they are going to try this drink but I have not seen any comments thereafter. Hence I am writing  my experience and I am happy to say, it is positive. I am keeping a close watch on the weighing scale and will update once I see noticeable difference.

 

Thanks again for this informative blog!

melissaw72

You're welcome!  Thank you for posting Lakshmiv!  I am so glad it works for you too! 

I did it for 2 weeks and found it's benefits also; I didn't lose a ton of weight, but I noticed I lost inches (my clothes fit better).  I didn't do it for longer than that because I had read somewhere how with doing it for too long you might reach a plateau, and I didn't want that to happen.  I was also fuller for longer and found I snacked less.  Glad it helped with you feeling better after having your gallbladder removed!

Melissa.

crystalp

can i drink this in afternoon and evening rather then night and moring

 

melissaw72

crystalp ... IMO I think you should drink it in the AM and PM to spread it all out.  I think as long as there is roughly 10-12 hours between each time you drink it that is ok.  I have not tried it any other way than in the AM and PM.

Melissa.

Leafl2230

I read almost everyone of these, yes, it matters what kind of cinnamon, and I believe the water should be warm. My young doctor friend has been trying to tell me for years now that just drinking a coffee cup of Luke warm water when you get up in the morning before you brush your teeth will also be beneficial to your loosing weight! 

I am trying this for the benefit of my digestive problem, & Bloating.  Hope it works for me! 

zooanimal

am i to reheat the tea in the morning or drink it cold?

melissaw72

It says you can drink it cold in the AM, but I always made it fresh both night and morning.

Melissa.

Jacksmom12

Do you know if this s safe for breastfeedig moms?

melissaw72

No, I don't know.  Maybe your DR would have better insight on this.

Melissa.

sasanach-8

id like to know  does it have to be a tea  or  does  honey cinnamon  mixed together and taken  by   teaspoon on own  do same   as this  is much more convienient

melissaw72

Personally, I would never take cinnamon without any water/tea.  I would not recommend it either.  But this is my opinion.

Melissa.

heath_luke

I'm just wondering if you let the cinnamon steep for 30 mins,cinnamon powder will settle at the bottom,then once cooled,add honey..Of course,will stir right? My friend told me to drink only the "tea" from cinnamon mixture and honey..So does it mean that when the cinnamon already settled at the bottom,need to pour the mixture in another cup so as not let the powder from cinnamon mixed before finally adding the honey?

 

melissaw72

I just warmed it up with the cinnamon in it, put the honey in, stirred it, then drank it.  And had whatever cinnamon was not on the bottom of the cup.

Melissa.

Aasiya adil

Hi admin,

i have few things to ask regarding this tea.

making da whole mixture at once didnt taste good for me in da morning so i prefer making fresh each time.we can really feel da difference n luving it :) 

my questions r:

1:my husband has slight cholestrol prb ( he isnt taking any medicine neithr wz prescribed.doctor just askd to have healthy food rich with omega-3)Is ths tea safe for him???

2: how long shud we drink this tea?is it gonna cause any harm if one drink ths tea for entire life?

3: i really luv drinking lemon water.is it safe to have ths tea AM,PM n lemon water during day time?

plz reply if it causes any health issues.i hv heard somewhere it causes Ulcer.is it true???

 

Aasiya adil

Sorry,its 1tsp cinnamon powder n 2 tspn honey in one 1 cup water ( we drink ths tea half cup each) 

melissaw72

I would suggest you talk to your DR before starting this.  Personally, I wouldn't drink it for more than 2 weeks.  Lemon water, IMO, is good for you and wouldn't hurt to have frequently (but again, with any questions, pls talk to your DR).  Idk about anything causing an ulcer.

Becky

melissaw72

Hi,  Maybe you should get a 2nd opinion?  If your DR doesn't know what to do anymore, then I would hope he wouldn't mind referring you to another DR to see if they can figure out what is wrong.  Idk myself what is wrong; I am not a DR.  So my advice to you is to seek out a 2nd opinion.  I hope things work out.

Melissa.

Teresanicholas

do you just use regular cinnamon? also why do you have to boil your water?

About the cinnamon:  There are different kinds of cinnamon, and some, when used too much, can be toxic to your kidneys and liver.

You boil the water because it is like making tea; you'd boil water to make tea.

Has anyone had a reaction to the cinnamon/honey drink? I've been doing it for 3 days, and now have a rash. Have been reading up on allergic reactions to the cinnamon. I'm going to try stopping and see if it goes away, but can one just do honey water for weight loss, if in fact the cinnamon turns out to be the culprit?

^^I don't know the answer to that question; I'm sorry.

I love this information, I am going to try this although I did want to mention I read this about cinnamon-

There’s one big word of caution about cinnamon that is often overlooked. There is a MAJOR difference between Cassia cinnamon from China, and Ceylon (or Sri Lankan) cinnamon that comes from the tiny island of the same name. You want to make sure you are using Ceylon In fact, the only true cinnamon is Ceylon cinnamon from Ceylon.

Ceylon cinnamon is so called "true cinnamon". It looks lighter and tastes sweet without the spicy or hot taste of ordinary cinnamon Cassia. Cassia contains a moderately toxic component called Coumarin, which is known to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentration. True Ceylon cinnamon has negligible amounts of Coumarin. It has between 2-5 ppm of Coumarin compared to Cassia (2000-5000 ppm). European health agencies have recently warned against consuming high amounts of cassia.

amyjaded ... if you read all the comments above yours, you'll see that I made a comment already about a separate post I made about different kinds of cinnamon and the risks.  That post is here:

And what I wrote in a previous comment than yours says this:

 "You could drink a cup in the morning and a cup at night, but be careful of the amount of cinnamon you use.  There are different kinds of cinnamon, and some, when used too much, can be toxic to your kidneys and liver.
