Ghee (Clarified Butter) For Weight Loss

Ghee has lost its glory over the last few years and that too in the country of its origin. What we call ghee is now more popular in the Western countries as clarified butter. Thanks to tons of advantages associated with its consumption.


Weight watchers who run away from ghee for all the wrong reasons must know that:

1: Clarified butter is good for you if you are trying to lose weight. It contains healthy fats and essential fatty acids that help reduce body fat while maintaining lean muscle mass.

2: Optimization of digestion is one of the keys to weight loss. There is no doubt that 2 teaspoon consumption of clarified butter every day makes it better.

3: Ghee increases satiety and thus prevents frequent and intense hunger pangs that may lead to overeating.

4: Ghee contains medium chain triglycerides that boost metabolism, increases fat oxidation, and prevents body fat accumulation.

5: It triggers the body to burn extra calories.

These are just a few good reasons why people trying to lose weight and stay fit should prefer home-made ghee over low-fat butter or anything that we inherit from the Western nations (including olive oil). Avoiding fats completely (both good and bad) will only make things worse.
