It’s more than a pretty plate garnish! Parsley has been used in several studies involving rats, and they show that this herb reduces the amount of glucose in the blood. If the same is true in humans, this tasty green herb can help control the appetite while encouraging the processing of food into energy the body can use, instead of storing it as fat.
Cardamom can help to lower blood glucose levels as well as regulates insulin. It also reduces the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) in studies done on rats.
Like many of the spices on this list, cloves can help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism, which helps your body burn more calories.
Mustard seeds seem to have a thermo genic effect, which means your body will burn more calories as it digests food. Although you most likely use prepared mustard on hot dogs and hamburgers, try adding some powdered dry mustard seed to some food dishes for a little extra kick as well as a little kick to your weight loss efforts.
