The secret to a slimmer waistline may be the simple spinach that grows in your garden. And yes, it has been scientifically proven that spinach extract decreases hedonic hunger to 95% and increased weight loss up to 43%.

Hedonic hunger

Now, what is this? The craving for unhealthy foods such as sweets or fast foods that leads to obesity is called as hedonic hunger. The spinach extract contains green leaf membranes called thylakoids.

The research study points out that taking thylakoids suppresses hedonic hunger and boosts the production of satiety hormones. A nice drink containing thylakoids before breakfast reduces food cravings and keeps you satisfied all day.


The vibrant looking spinach is rich in nutrient goodness. It is rich in vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, iron, copper and B vitamins.
Now, as the study goes spinach extract was given to 38 overweight women for 3 months. Every morning before breakfast the participants had the green drink.

The group that drank the spinach extract which was brimming with thylakoid goodness lost 5 kg. They felt it easier to stick to three meals per day and did not experience any cravings.

Apart from helping in weight loss spinach has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. Here is an amazing Garlic sautéed spinach recipe by Laura Vitale. Hope you try it.
Take care,
