5 Everyday Kitchen Essentials That Have Weight-Loss Power

There's no magic bullet that can help you lose weight, but incorporating these everyday essentials into your daily diet will only support your weight-loss goals. The good news? You probably already have them ready to go in your pantry!

Lemons: You don't need to drink the Master Cleanse to harness the power of lemons. Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fibre that has been shown to aid in weight loss.

Apple cider vinegar: Studies have shown that vinegar may help keep you from feeling hungry by slowing stomach emptying; it also lowers the glycemic index of high-carb foods, so it can help you feel fuller for longer.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar levels for people living with type 2 diabetes, aids in regular digestion, and boosts your metabolism.

Olive oil: You might know that the healthy fats in olive oil can support your heart's health and beat inflammation, but they also support your weight-loss goals. Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) can help you feel full, but they also target belly fat.

Hot sauce: Hot sauce offers a boost of vitamin C and capsaicin, a compound found in hot peppers responsible for the serious heat. But even better than sheer flavour factor, vitamin C and capsaicin have both been linked to revving up metabolism.
