Can Diatomaceous Earth Help Me Lose Weight?

Many people report that diatomaceous earth (DE) helps them lose weight. While we don't claim DE is a weight loss wonder food, we do recognize the widespread testimonials of people who have lost weight while taking diatomaceous earth.

As far as we know, there isn't anything in diatomaceous earth that inherently makes it a fat burner, yet taking DE can benefit your overall health in ways that lead to weight loss. For example, DE can promote digestive health by cleansing your body of toxins that slow it down. Getting rid of these toxins improves your body's functionality, which may help you shed weight faster as you exercise and eat well. Detoxing also creates a general sense of energy and well-being, which can help you have the motivation you need to exercise.

Some people also find that taking diatomaceous earth first thing in the morning curbs their appetite throughout the day, helping them control how much they eat. People also say that DE helps them control cravings for sugar.

There is yet another way of taking diatomaceous earth can contribute to weight loss. People who take DE generally drink more water. This helps the DE move through your body easily without causing constipation. Drinking more water like this helps flush out your system, and people who drink more water are generally drinking less soft drinks and other high-calorie beverages.

So, can diatomaceous earth help you lose weight? We're willing to bet that it can, but it probably does so indirectly. It can clean the junk out of your body and give you the boost you need to exercise and treat your body right, which, after all, is the best weight loss plan out there.
