7. Garlic

Garlic is a little hard to deal with as it has such a potent odor. When you find out that those who used garlic over a 7-week period lost more weight than those who did not use it, you will start adding it to your foods right away.

How do you add it to your diet: Bake up some fresh garlic bread, add it to your sauces and soups, and use it in your salad and dressings.


8. Cumin

Cumin may be a small spice but only one teaspoon can help your body burn more than three times the body fat it normally does.

How to add it to your diet: It can be added to salad dressings, soups, stews, dips, and stir-fries.


9. Parsley

Studies have found that animals who had parsley in their bodies were able to see a reduction in the amount of glucose that was in their blood. Having a lower glucose level helps to lose weight and it produces a higher level of energy.

How to add it to your diet: Parsley has long been a garnish for food but you can increase your intake by adding fresh chopped parsley to stuffed or roasted vegetables, dips, salad dressings, and tomato sauce.
