If you are struggling to reach your weight goals, methi or fenugreek seeds could hold the key. This super herb is packed with properties that aid weight loss and works by boosting metabolism. It is often said that starting your day with a glass of methi seeds soaked in warm water on an empty stomach can help you lose weight. It provides a kick to the body's metabolism in addition to acting as an antacid. Fenugreek contains galactomannan, a water soluble fibre known to suppress appetite. This powerful ingredient also controls blood sugar levels and lowers cholesterol. Add just one teaspoon of the methi seeds in water, as they're considered to be hot in nature. You can also have fenugreek tea before you go to bed at night to reap its benefits. Apart from this, you can cook your dals or curries by adding the seeds in their powder form.
