How to Lose Weight Using Cinnamon and Honey – Drink your Way to Fitness

If you are behind the schedule and you feel that time is quickly running out, help yourself to some cinnamon + honey drink. It is a wondrous solution for a drink that will help you lose weight easily and healthily, without spending a lot of money on allegedly miraculous pills or lengthy diets.

While I strongly oppose pills and other artificial ways of losing weight, I don’t claim that the cinnamon honey drink will work alone. You still need to stay away from those fast foods, eat healthy and exercise daily but this tasty drink will push the process into overdrive.

I think this is the ultimate example of combining the best of both worlds, because for the first time you no longer need to decide between what is tasty and what is good for you.


I tried drinking this mixture for few weeks and the difference was noticeably visible. No, I didn’t lose 10 lbs overnight but I felt light because this drink would clear out all the greasy food I’ve consumed the next day.

The Result

I can’t believe I’ve lost 5 lbs in barely 2 weeks of drinking this drink and after a month and half later, I’ve lost almost 10 lbs. This drink really does relieve a lot of problems like bloating and irregularity, something that most weight loss tricks actually cause.


TIP in Buying Cinnamon:

All Cinnamon are Not Created Equal
Often in supermarkets you don’t buy true cinnamon, but cassia (Chinese cinnamon bark), which is a cheap cinnamon from China, Vietnam and Indonesia. It has VERY different chemical properties and contains a potentially dangerous substance called coumarin. (unfortunately, Saigon cinnamon is actually cassia, so look for organic CEYLON cinnamon!). It has a sweet aroma and a noticeably better and milder flavor than the cassia variety.


QUICK TIP!I suggest that you use a tea infuser to hold the cinnamon in hot water as it doesn’t dissolve well in liquid (the wet cinnamon within the tea infuser is thrown out later, but into the garbage as it could clog your sink!). Or you can use a coffee filter when brewing this drink.

1 tbsp organic raw Honey, 1 tsp organic Ceylon Cinnamon powder and 1 cup water.

Boil the water. Add cinnamon in a mug of hot water. When water has cooled to drinkable temp, add honey (not before it’s cooled!). Drink 1 glass before breakfast and one glass right before bed to boost metabolism. This works — I’ve tried it for a week and have already lost inches. (Don’t reheat, keep in mind if it is too hot, the heat will break down the nutrients in the honey.)

Consume every night before sleeping, and every morning 30 minutes before eating anything else.


I’m confident that nobody doubts the fact that cinnamon and honey are expensive ingredients, so you can create as much juice as you want without worrying about expenses. I prefer not to brew large quantities but if you are short on time, you will find it refreshing to learn that the drink can be stored safely for days. Every time you feel the need of a refreshing drink, take a sip and watch how those pounds melt away.

I hope this works for everyone like it worked for me! Let me know how it goes!

Before starting this drink or any weight loss program, consult a doctor or your personal physician. I am not an expert, a dietitian, a physical trainer, nor claim to be. This is only a reflection of my personal experience to lose weight, my success in losing extra pounds may not work for you as every person has a unique body system.

Thank you very much for your tip
Since im from SriLanka (Ceylon) I can find the original cinnamon
Is there any side effects by having this daily?

Calleigh April 12, 2014 at 6:26 am

Its only 3 months since you gave birth. So give yourself some time to recuperate and since you are breastfeeding, you’ll soon lose the extra pounds you gained. Just concentrate on your baby at this stage.

sweety mehta April 28, 2014 at 5:49 am

Anne May 31, 2014 at 4:41 am

Does the honey play a role in boosting the matabilism or is it just to make the drink taste better?

Laeba Sajid May 31, 2014 at 11:41 am

How will the people suffering from diabetes consume it or is there any other substitute for honey???

iman May 31, 2014 at 1:07 pm

Calleigh June 1, 2014 at 6:04 pm

You can make one glass in the morning and the 1 glass in the evening time. Or you can make 2 glasses altogether and drink the first one while storing the other glass in the fridge so you can use it later in the evening.

mounika June 3, 2014 at 9:16 am

Calleigh June 6, 2014 at 3:04 am

Yes, you can add few drops of lemon.

Calleigh June 6, 2014 at 3:20 am

You may have been eating too much fatty food with no exercise.

Calleigh June 6, 2014 at 12:32 pm

It means raw, unprocessed honey. It is dark in color and not being processed.

anne June 10, 2014 at 9:15 am

Deeps June 10, 2014 at 1:32 pm

Hi Calleigh,
It is a very informative post. You mentioned to boil the water & adding the cinnamon. If I prepare it in advance, do I need to reheat the drink again as you said not to heat it once you add honey?? Plz reply, thanks in advance.

Calleigh June 10, 2014 at 4:10 pm

Don’t reheat the mixture once the honey is already added. You can drink it cold actually.

Calleigh June 10, 2014 at 4:11 pm

This drink can be consumed anytime

Calleigh June 10, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Manuka is the best! But we are only adding honey here to offset the taste

vaishali June 10, 2014 at 9:09 pm

Is it necessary to use raw honey?? Can we use the pasteurized honey….as i hav heard that raw honey may hav some side effects ….

shazia June 10, 2014 at 9:30 pm

Can u name the brand of raw unprocessed honey so make it easy to buy. Thanks

radhika June 10, 2014 at 10:49 pm

May I knw whis ceylon cinnamon powder and can we use normal honey instead of raw honey

Calleigh June 11, 2014 at 2:58 am

You should stir the mixture well before drinking since it must be sitting in the fridge for long.

Nafi June 11, 2014 at 11:39 am

I m 23 yrs old…whetr it vl help to reduce my waist,belly n back….pls reply me as soon as possible….

anu June 30, 2014 at 1:52 am

@ Raman
My grandma gave me a piece of advice when I got pregnant. She said these 9 months and until you stop breastfeeding, do not eat 3 things: Sugan, white flour, and cheese.
According to research, it is confirmed that avoiding these three items not only prevents weight gain but also prevents fat pockets to accumulate. These fat pockets are whats the hardest to loose from a pregnancy.
I followed the advice with great difficulty but I also lost the pounds off easily.

anu June 30, 2014 at 1:55 am

If you add lemon to this drink, it will offset the heat of the cinnamon….

Metu July 13, 2014 at 7:37 pm

Cinammon is quiet hot in nature. Will it result in pimples or some other side effect ?

Calleigh July 13, 2014 at 9:16 pm

no, it wont cause any pimple.

Hi ma’m i’m drinking lemon honey mix wit warm water every morning, half a lemon n one teaspoon honey, how can i add cinnamon to this? And here i only get cinnamon bark skin, not powder, and again, one question, i have chronic acne problems, i m trying your remedies n it does help, and i’v been taking treatment from ayurvedic doctor, who recommended blood purifier for lowering body heat, now because this cinnamon is hot, will it be harmfull for me? Plz advice.. Hoping your promth response. Thank you.

sou September 19, 2014 at 10:48 am

Can cinnamon powder be mixed in the water and can I boil both and later honey can be added?
Please reply soon

Calleigh September 19, 2014 at 1:25 pm

You dont need to boil the mixture of cinnamon and water. Just get a hot water and add some cinnamon on it and once it becomes cooler, you can add honey on it.

Calleigh September 19, 2014 at 1:30 pm

If your Ayurvedic doctor was recommending you a blood purifier to lower body heat, just skip the cinnamon then. The honey and lemon mixture is fine when detoxifying your body already.

nausheen dawer September 30, 2014 at 10:23 am

Hi, im tkng cinnamon ginger green tea will it help me to reduce weight nd how many times shall I tk plz reply me soon

ayesha October 1, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I tried cinnamon powder , it wont dissolve. It stays on the top of water as a layer. Plz advice

Calleigh October 2, 2014 at 3:14 am

Just let the cinnamon sit for a while and strain it before drinking. Just make sure to throw the it in the waste bin NOT in your sink to avoid clog drainage.

Calleigh October 2, 2014 at 3:18 am

This drink wont make you constipated. I believe you got constipated due to lack of fiber in your diet and dehydration. Drink lots of water (8 or more glasses of water everyday) and add more fiber on your diet.

sireesha March 22, 2015 at 8:34 pm

i have been using it from 2 weeks but i can feel my body as light but how can i reduce my belly fat . . and can i use the normal cinnamon which we use in cooking . . please do guide me and do the needful.

Thanking You,
