This garlic and honey remedy for weight loss has become really popular.
The recipe is actually quite simple too:
- Chop up two fresh cloves of garlic

This honey and garlic remedy is supposed to be consumed on an empty stomach for 7 days.
There was enough interest around this topic that I became curious myself.
Garlic and Honey Remedy for Weight loss: My Experiment
As shown in the video, I decided to do a quick little experiment.
I wanted to see if i could actually lose weight using this garlic and honey remedy.
So, this was purely a curiosity thing for me.
Most of the sites and videos I watched had a long list of benefits listed.
But it was the weight loss aspect that intrigued me and that is what I focused on.
So, how did it go?
I have to confess, I did not eat this garlic and honey remedy for a full seven days.
Please watch the video and you’ll understand why!
I found it to be extremely challenging to chew down two full cloves of garlic all at once!
In fact, I hadn’t planned on chewing at all.
I assumed that I could just throw it to the back of my throat like a shot.
Alas, the honey was too thick,
I considered adding some hot water but didn’t.
I wanted to follow the instructions as closely as possible.
In the end, I chewed it all and my oh my, I was not prepared for what happened next.
1. First, I got heartburn (surprise!)
This heartburn was different from any other type of heartburn I’ve ever experienced.
It wasn’t a slow, steady rise in discomfort over a span of hours.
The best way I can describe it is this:
It felt like a *BOOM* in my chest area.
2. Next, I got a tummy ache
The heartburn wasn’t too surprising.
After all, I did just chomp down two full cloves of garlic.
The tummy ache though? I didn’t expect it.
It felt like a hot, burning sensation in my belly.
Again, not pleasant.
3. Finally, I had to go potty
I know this is TMI but I want to be honest.
This experiment was truly a new type of experience for me.
I’m not sure I’ll do this again unless I get a good response from you guys.
Do you want me to test out more of these crazy natural remedies?
Ok. Did I Lose Weight with Garlic and Honey?
Based on my science background, I can tell you something unequivocally.
There is no need to go through this torture to lose weight.
The science of how to lose weight is very clear.
It 100% does not need this level of effort (and discomfort).

So perhaps that is conducive to weight loss.
My Conclusion: Honey and Garlic for Weight loss
If you’re an average person just trying to lose some weight, I do not recommend this remedy.
Weight loss doesn’t have to be complicated.
Simple, not easy though
I almost didn’t share my results from trying this experiment.
But I think it’s important that people share results from these types of things.
I’d hate for you to have heartburn for a week when you don’t have to 🙂
Anyway, that’s all I have to say about garlic and honey for weight loss.
Watch the video to see my facial expression when I realized I had to chew.
