Want to learn about a desi superfood that most people avoid like a plague due to the misconception that it could lead to obesity and a rise in cholesterol? It’s our own ghee! Clarified butter or ghee, which can be obtained from animal sources, are rich in nutrients. Cow porridge, especially the grass-fed one, has been found to have amazing health benefits and actually help you lose weight and lose weight. Ghee is popular in weight loss circles because it can mobilize fatty acids so they can be burned and reduce belly fat. There is a major misconception that you should avoid any type of fat while on a weight loss diet. Ghee certainly has fats, almost 99.9% of which is fat, but it is in saturated form and only when consumed above a certain amount does it have adverse effects. In fact, Kareena Kapoor, who knows how to lose weight like a boss, makes a point of adding Desi Ghee to her every meal. In this post, we’ll tell you how ghee can help burn fat and increase weight loss.
How Ghee Can Help You Lose Weight:
- Ghee mobilizes aids in mobilizing fats in the cells so that they can be used as energy.
- Ghee nourishes the body.
- It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which speed up metabolism and speed up the fat burning process.
- Ghee is high in vitamins like A, D, E, K and these are some of the antioxidants that flush out toxins.
- Contains conjugated linoleic acid which is believed to reduce total body fat.
- It’s also a good source of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential fatty acid that reduces the risk of insulin resistance. As we all know, insulin resistance is directly related to obesity and weight gain.
- Contains healthy fats, which are necessary for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
- Increases muscle mass.
- Full of nutrients, especially amino acids.
- Shrinks the fat cells.
- Reduces inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation makes the body resistant to insulin, and as a result, the pancreas continuously pumps insulin to lower blood sugar levels. Now we all know that insulin is also a fat storage hormone that triggers the formation of new fat cells. Inflammation triggers insulin resistance, which in turn leads to higher insulin production and a larger formation of fat cells, which convert all additional calories into fat and store them, especially in the abdominal area, thereby increasing the waistline.
- The butyric acid content in ghee boosts immunity and makes the gut strong. As we all know, a strong gut and immunity are key factors in burning fat.
- The nutrients in ghee detoxify the body.
- Ghee is full of essential amino acids.
How Do I Consume Ghee For Weight Loss?
Since ghee is 99.9% saturated fat, although it has so many benefits, moderation is key because all the calories in it would add up at the end of the day. Limit ghee consumption to just two or three dollops or tablespoons a day. Most importantly, remember that ghee isn’t a magical ingredient that would melt away fat. Without a proper diet like the Rati Beauty app and regular exercise, no superfood would lead to weight loss.
Here are a few different ways you can add ghee to your diet:
1. Add a drop of ghee to hot steaming dal.
2. Take 1 tablespoon of ghee in a glass of warm milk and consume it half an hour before breakfast.
3. Apply it to chappatis and paranthas.
4. Use it as an edible oil (just think of 1 or 2 tablespoons).
