Turmeric is thought to contain many health benefits that come from the chemical curcumin, found in the spice. Curcumin, which can be anti-inflammatory, is an antioxidant and could help prevent and treat cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. However, a 2006 study found that only 3 percent of turmeric powders by weight was curcumin. Supplements often contain more curcumin than the powders, but it’s difficult to absorb into the bloodstream, so someone would need to take a lot of turmeric to get the benefits of the chemical.
The more you have to lose (obese / extremely overweight), the more you will lose as your body has more fat to spare.

Most people weight loss journey is mostly about losing a lot of water (and water weight), going on holiday and then coming back home feeling fat and full of guilt. The truth is, fat has nothing to do with it, because they haven’t lost much of it in the first place.
