Not so long ago, I wrote a topic about how apple vinegar can be used for weight loss. And today I want to talk about another tool for the same purpose – linseed oil.
Immediately make a reservation that you can not replace flaxseed oil with any other! Or rather, your will – you can use anything instead, but then you should not wait for the promised result. Because each type of vegetable oil has its own characteristics.
Useful properties of flaxseed oil
Flaxseed oil contains many polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins A, E, K and B group, potassium. Among other edible oils of plant origin, flaxseed takes the first place in terms of biological value.
Its use improves metabolism, reduces cholesterol levels, makes blood vessels more elastic, helps to normalize hormones.
Slimming with flaxseed oil
Lose weight with flaxseed oil can be different. It all depends on your desire – how quickly you want to get the result and which one. I will give two options.
If you want to clear the intestines of toxins, you have 2-3 months to implement this plan, and the desired weight loss is 2-3 kg, the option is perfect for you! As a bonus, you will also find an improvement in skin and hair, strengthening joints.
So, flaxseed oil should be taken twice a day – in the morning, on an empty stomach, 15-20 minutes before breakfast and in the evening, at night, 15-20 minutes after dinner (last meal).
The amount of oil should first be 1 teaspoon (in one step), then gradually increase to 1 tablespoon, then slowly returning back to the original rate.
Of course, you should not lean on the sweet, floury, fatty during this period. Eat as before, or a little stricter.
If you decide to go on a diet, the result of weight loss is needed up to 5 kg, and the time is only a week, this option is for you. The diet is quite diverse, but clearly spelled out. The scheme of the use of linseed oil – the same as in the cleansing. Exercise during the diet – welcome.

Flaxseed oil in limited quantities can be added to food. Recommended for salads, cottage cheese, porridge. I have not tried it with cottage cheese and cannot even imagine … for me it is unlikely to be delicious))
But in the salad – very much. In the post I like to add flaxseed oil to buckwheat. Porridge seems to be empty, and acquires an interesting taste with a hint of walnuts.
