I decided to do a 30-day jeera water for weight loss experiment on myself because of the lockdown.
The last 15 months of lockdown had made me extremely lethargic.
It had taken a toll on my weight and gastric health.
Going out for a run or to the gym was out of the question. So, I started looking for some home remedies.
My grandmother recommended Jeera (Cumin) water to test if it works out for me.
I gave in and thought of trying it out for 30 days to see what would happen.
This is my story.

Research before my experiment
Before starting, I decided to do a bit of research and go through nearly 18 jeera water for weight loss reviews.
Here is what I found.
What are jeera water benefits?
I found that Jeera contains a lot of antioxidants which flush out the toxins from your body.
These antioxidants are said to resolve gastric and skin related problems.
In addition to this, jeera water also increases metabolism which in turn aids in weight loss/quicker digestion.
To get the best results, I read that I had to drink it early in the morning on an empty stomach.
Why? I think it has to do with absorption.
Can jeera water reduce belly fat?
If this was true, people like me would drink jeera water all day long…
…and never go to the gym.
Jeera water is known to improve metabolism and improve digestion.
Both of these contribute to weight loss…
…but it could be weight loss from anywhere.
You could lose arm fat, face fat, thigh fat etc.
It is not necessary (and very unlikely) that you would lose belly fat.
Note: if it feels like your belly has gone in after jeera water, that is likely because of bloating relief and not weight loss.
But I’ve been drinking Kalmegh Bitters for a while now and I’m observing that I’m losing some weight.
Do we need to boil jeera water for weight loss?
There are few studies which compare jeera water and jeera seeds for weight loss.
However, most people prefer the water version because it is tastier and easier to make.
So I decided to boil my cumin seeds in water to create jeera water for weight loss.
Can we drink jeera water at night for weight loss?
Jeera water is a brewed drink that doesn’t contain any caffeine.
If you drink Jeera water at night after dinner, you’ll likely feel lighter…
…and it won’t interrupt your sleep.
In my experiment, I tried jeera water on an empty stomach in the morning for 15 days…
…and jeera water after dinner for 15 days.
My jeera water for weight loss review is below.
How many times should I drink Jeera water for weight loss?
If you are doing just Jeera water, a minimum of 60 days.
I only only lost 1kg in 30 days, which isn’t that great.
But I recommend you combine jeera water with a diet for best results.
How much weight can I lose with Jeera water?
Just a few kilos. Jeera water will increase your metabolism, but only to a point.
If you don’t change your diet too, eventually your body will readjust your metabolism, and you will not lose any more weight.
That is why it is extremely important to combine Jeera water with a diet for best results.
My Jeera Water for weight loss review
So I tried Jeera water for weight loss for 30 days.
Here is what happened:
Jeera water and weight loss
What I expected: At least 1-2kgs down.
What happened: 1 kg down.
It is clear to me that one drink alone does very little.
(Although the internet is filled with people claiming 5-7 kgs of weight loss)
Eventually, it comes down to calories in vs. calories out.
Jeera water helps a little with ‘calories out,’ but that is not always enough.
You definitely need to keep your diet in check, and monitor calories in vs. out.
Jeera water and metabolism
What I expected: A change in my hunger pattern (maybe even quantity of food that I eat)
What happened: Slight decrease in hunger cravings. I didn’t feel like eating too much.
This is a no-brainer.
The one thing consistent across almost all 18 reviews that I went through was that jeera water increases metabolism.
It worked for me too.
Jeera water and bloating
What I expected: A slight change, puffy face and stomach goes slightly in.
What happened: Near 100% reversal. Bloating was a thing of the past! I didn’t feel too bloated even in the evenings.
This was pretty amazing. I passed a little more gas in the early days but felt very, very light.
Jeera water and skin health
What I expected: No change.
What happened: Became much softer. I used to feel a bit itchy especially around my upper arm area, and now that region feels softer.
Honestly, this morning drink didn’t live up to the hype.
Still, I enjoyed my 30 days.
It helped me set a consistent, early morning habit which I think my body really appreciated.
One drink per month, repeated every 3 months.
Ashgourd and Jeera I make at home, but Kalmegh Bitters I buy online.
(It really seems to agree with my body, and gives me much better results than either of the other two)
Honestly, you should find your morning drink ritual.
It makes a massive difference.
