Weight LossThere is no clinical or documented evidence to suggest oil pulling can help you lose weight. However, if the anecdotal evidence can be believed, and oil pulling can help detoxify the body, a healthy body free of toxins and parasites is better able to function optimally and shed excess pounds. Quoted in Dinakhader.com, the website of Dina Khader, a registered dietician and holder of a Master of Science degree in nutrition from New York Medical College, nutritionist Anne Louise Gittleman, asserts a liver overloaded with toxins and parasites cannot efficiently burn body fat.
These comments above are just a few reasons to start oil pulling. Take a 2 week challenge. Wake up 20 minutes early and oil pull. While you are pulling do some planks, lunges, sit-ups, prepare your healthy breakfast and your salad for lunch. I recommend NOT standing in front of your mirror looking at yourself for 0 minutes. I promise you, 20 minutes will seem like FOREVER. So use the time wisely. Maybe even taking your shower, shaving your legs or picking out your clothes for the day.
