How These Ingredients Help in Weight Loss
As I mentioned above, methi seeds, ajwain and kala jeera work individually and help in losing weight. I shall now notify you of how these ingredients help in weight loss.
Being rich in fiber, fenugreek seeds help in increasing the metabolic rate of the body and thus help in burning fat. Fiber also helps you keep full for a long time, hence keeping you away from binge eating. It also consists of an important element known as galactomannan, which slows down the absorption of sugar in your blood. In addition, fenugreek seeds have low carbohydrate content, with no unhealthy carbohydrates. So, it prevents you from gaining weight.
We have already discussed about the various ways in which fenugreek seeds help in losing weight along with the recipes in one of our previous article. Some of the ways in which you can consume fenugreek seeds are water soaked fenugreek, fenugreek tea and fenugreek sprouts. So, fenugreek seeds help in losing weight in a number of ways.
Ajwain, or carom seeds also help in weight loss. Similar to fenugreek seeds, ajwain also increases the metabolic rate and burns fat. Ajwain also has a laxative property, which helps in reducing the water weight. Water weight can make you look bloated and add to the extra weight of the body. It is also high in the chemical thymol, which increases food absorption and secretion of gastric juices.
Consuming ajwain seeds on a regular basis can help in improving the digestive system and gives you relief from indigestion and constipation, helping in proper breakdown of food and a faster metabolism. It also contains a high level of antioxidants which help in detoxification of the body. Removal of toxins from the body also helps in quicker results for losing weight.

Kala jeera has a property of reducing bad cholesterol and reduces the risks of heart problems. It is really effective in reducing the fat around belly area.
Kala jeera is known to have a diuretic effect, which is useful in losing water weight. as discussed above, bloating and water weight can cause unnecessary weight gain, which can be combated through use of kala jeera.
