How to use garlic for weight loss and other health purposes!

Leave a Comment

Garlic is efficient in weight loss because:

-It is a powerful detoxifier 

-It boosts your metabolism

-It is an effective diuretic 

-It eliminates fat from the cells

-It regulates the ups and downs in your blood sugar levels - fluctuations that cause carbs and sweets cravings and turn on the fat-storing hormones.

Apart from using garlic for weight loss and its fat-flush properties, garlic is mostly used:

-As anti-fungal and a great help in fighting one of the frequent causes of being unable to lose weight, Candida overgrowth 

-An antibacterial

-A powerful antioxidant, protecting your body against damaging free radicals - that’s why garlic is said to be an effective cancer fighter

-It works as a powerful broad-spectrum antibiotic

-It builds your immune system

-It lowers a high blood pressure

-It lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) while raising good cholesterol (HDL) 

-It helps dissolve blood clots that lead to heart attacks and strokes.


You should know that even cooked, garlic keeps your blood cholesterol from oxidizing and damaging the lining of your blood vessels, preventing the formation of vascular plaque, which contributes to the cardiovascular disease.

To Reap all the Health Benefits of Garlic...

...crush it and let it sit in the open air 10 minutes before using it. That's because raw garlic needs to interact with the oxygen in air to form allicin, the active ingredient responsible for the garlic benefits.


You can use garlic to flavor a variety of foods, including salad vinaigrettes, marinades, sauces, and pretty much all meats and vegetables.

In fact, garlic is one of the negative calorie foods that you can use in many, many ways: crush, mince, chop, slice, or let the cloves whole to get varying flavor intensities from the most intense to the mildest (crushed garlic is approx. 10 times more flavorful than the sliced one).

For just a delicate hint, rub a cut clove on the inside of your salad bowl before adding the main ingredients.

Okay, Great Garlic Benefits... But the Smell!!

Well, if you need to remove garlic odor after handling it, wash your hands thoroughly in cold water, and then rub them onto a stainless steel surface.

Ate some garlic before a date?

No problem. Chew some fresh parsley or mint leaves or a very small amount of citrus peel, caraway or fennel seeds. The garlic aftertaste and smell will be gone in just a couple of minutes... If you then brush your teeth with mint-flavored toothpaste you can even dare a kiss without any risk ;)
