    Does cinnamon really burn fat?

    So I bought cinnamon yesterday, just because I like the taste of it but a lot of people say that it also can boost the metabolism.

    "These reports found that when consuming only ¼ to 1 teaspoon of this spice, the body's metabolism can even be increased 20 times beyond its natural ability, allowing the body to burn stored fat and calories more quickly and efficiently."

    Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/1863292

    Sounds too good to be true.

    So I'd need to eat around 20,000 calories/day at maintenance. Sounds legit.

    I just started adding cinnamon to my post workout protein shakes. My reason is I read that 1 gram per day could lower blood sugar by up to 20-24%.

    http://diabetes.webmd.com/cinnamon-a...s-for-diabetes

    I was just tested and blood sugar came in at 105 which is now considered pre-diabetic. The old line was 120. I have been losing weight at about 1-2lb per week but this past week was a 2.4lb drop. I have had a whoosh week before. Doctor said weight loss is not gonna effect blood sugar so I am gonna stick with the cinnamon until my next blood test and see if I am under 100.

    I am no scientist but is metabolism and blood sugar/insulin interrelated or two entirely different functions?

    If it does have an effect on metabolism, it's going to be such a small amount that even taking a few seconds out of your day to cover everything with cinnamon is going to be a waist of time. Focus more on calorie deficit, less on cinnamon.

    I feel the same way about cinnamon that I do about capsaicin. It's not going to boost your metabolism but eating flavorful/spicy food helps to regulate appetite in general. If there's any metabolic benefit to cinnamon I'd wager its so infinitesimally small that it's not worthy of consideration.
    Lifts:
    Bench: 305lb
    Deadlift: 415lb
    Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
    Pull-up: bodyweight x2

    "There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

    I can tell you it's not true.

    If it was, I'd already be dead from all the oatmeal + cinnamon that I eat daily.

    If obesity is one of the main if not the main causes of Type 2 diabetes, and raised blood sugar is one of the key diagnostic criteria, it seems to me that obesity is substantially a cause of raised blood sugar, and so lowering obesity level would lower blood sugar.
