There is no magic formula that can help you lose weight. However, incorporating the following five kitchen necessities in your diet can support your weight loss goals.

Lemons: Drinking lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber which can aid weight loss.

Alissa Rumsey, R.D., a spokesperson of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, lemon in hot water could not actually cause weight loss. However, if this drink replaced a beverage higher in calories, such as coffee with sugar or fruit juice, which then results to calorie deficit, can help you lose weight.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Based on studies, vinegar has shown to help you keep from feeling hungry by slowing the process of emptying the stomach. At the same time, it lowers the glycemic index of high-carbs foods which can make you feel fuller or longer.

Other than that, it contains the same amount of pectin as apples that contain 1.5 grams, where it can suppress your appetite. It can effectively help weight loss even more than eating raw apples. It also helps in protein utilization which helps the formation of growth hormone, the substance that the body needs for the metabolism to keep on working even while at rest.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon helps in weight loss by controlling the insulin levels, decreasing of the blood sugar, speeding up metabolism, lowering IDL cholesterol, helping to burn belly fat, and suppressing of appetite.

Olive Oil: Aside from supporting the heart's health and beat inflammation through the healthy fats in olive oil, it can support weight loss too. According to researchers, olive oils contain mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which help a person feels full while fighting off dangerous belly bugs.

Hot sauce: Hot sauce contains vitamin C and capsaicin, which have been both linked in reviving a person's metabolism. This is due to the secretions stimulated by the spiciness in hot sauce or salsa, which helps improve digestion.
