Overweight Home Remedies and Natural Treatments


Diet Home Remedy

Most people who are overweight tend to eat the western diet which is the worst diet that a person can eat. This diet has no limits and is focused on animal products and other foods that contain large abnormal amounts of fats and oils. In order to break away from this life style, we should observe diets from around the world for new ideas on healthy eating. Most countries around the world such as Asia or in Central America have diets that are made up of grains, corn, potatoes, and vegetables, and they hardly use any animal products. In these countries, the people tend to be sick less often than the people who eat the western diet. These people also look young, fit, trim, and agile. The McDougall starch based diet is what this is all about. Dr. John McDougall, MD, created this diet over thirty years ago to help people look and feel the way they are suppose to. This diet takes the bad stuff out of your life, like the fat and oils that are in animal products and replaces them with delicious healthier foods. By eating this way you can eat lots of healthy and filling foods, but not gain excess weight. This diet not only puts you on the track to losing weight but it strongly reduces your chances of having diseases such as type two diabetes, coronary diseases, and all cancers. You can eat all you want of the correct foods and you don’t have to count calories or anything like that.  Eating fat makes you fat.  Every ounce of fat you eat goes right from the lips to the hips.

Making your own V8 juice is one way to give your system a boost and curb your appetite. All it takes is one to two tomatos, one onion, and three teaspoons of lemon juice. Run the tomatoes and onion through a juice machine and add the lemon juice. Just by drinking this you will curb your appetite and help your body digest the food you eat.

Both the sodium and additives are bad for the human body so it is best to make your own. You can always use this as a way to curb your appetite when you are hungry or in between meals. If done right, this will help you lose weight and beat the overweight battle.



Cabbage, like all vegetables, is a healthy option for you to use to when you are trying to lose weight. Cabbage works as filler, helping you fill your stomach.

Water as Overweight Home Remedy

The best technique next to dieting properly is water. Water is crucial to our health and well-being. Drinking adequate amounts of water each day can help flush out toxins and in turn help us to lose weight. Normally people need to drink eighty to one hundred and twenty ounces of water daily. When you are trying to lose weight you need to increase your water intake to two times as much. Make sure to drink water before, during, and after all meals. Also drink three eight ounce glasses of water when you get up in the morning and drink three more when you go to bed. My mother was unsuccessfully trying to lose weight until she began drinking water upon waking each morning. Once she adopted this overweight home remedy of adding water to her daily diet routine she lost weight.
