Below you will learn how to use baking soda for weight loss the right way. Baking soda has been used for centuries as a home remedy to cure all kinds of health and beauty issues. Now you will learn how it can also be used to help you lose weight fast. Losing weight is not an easy process, it usually requires a lifestyle change. Basically, you will need to consume a low-calorie diet along with 3-4 hours of weekly exercise to burn fat and keep it off.
That said, you can lose your first 5-7 pounds of water weight and fat around the belly area using the following remedies. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the remedies below, please refrain from using them before consulting with your doctor. I also recommend that you do not consume any of these mixtures for more than 3 days just to be safe.
How To Use Baking Soda For Weight Loss
Please note that consuming baking soda in large amounts is not safe and can lead to dangerous health issues. However, adding 1 teaspoon or less to your drinks daily is usually safe and does not cause harm. Baking soda acts as a natural diuretic and when consumed, it will help remove excess water weight from your body.
Please drink enough water when using baking soda for weight loss. This is because baking soda will reduce the water levels in your body and cause sodium levels to rise. Losing water weight is also dangerous because it causes vitamins, minerals, and nutrients loss through urine. I highly recommend you lose weight by eating healthy instead of following yoyo diets.
