What about mixing it in coffee or cream cheese. Will it still cause nose bleeds?

No, just trying to hold a spoonful in your mouth and swallow it dry will cause nose bleeds. I read about this on a website where a man was challeneged to eat it like that and it was terribly painful for him.

I heard it was very good for lowering cholesterol too so I just started with this yesterday. I made my yocheese and put a full teaspoon in it with my cream and it was delicious!

Hope it works!

Thanks. I've just started taking this yesterday, so I wanted to make sure I was doing it right.

Yocheese is yogurt wherein you drain the whey out. I purchase the Brown Cow full fat, plain yogurt with cream on top in the large containers at Wild Oats. To get the yocheese I mix it all up, put a bowl or another container under it and then get a small strainer with 2 pieces of paper towel and then I dump the container of yogurt onto the towels, place alumn. foil on top and place in fridge to drain for about 8 hours or overnight. Once drained I threw out the liquid whey, and carefully put the yocheese in my smaller empty containers of yogurt. Then when I'm ready to eat I mix about 2 teaspoons of heavy cream and then my sf syrup or packet of splenda and cinnamon. Its delicious and very filling. They have more info on this on the yogurt challenge if interested.

CINNAMON ON STRAWBERRIES!

Cinnamon with Splenda on strawberries is the bomb! My husband got me started on this and now I don't want it any other way. I buy the bags of frozen whole strawberries at Sam's. coat with cinnamon and splenda and let thaw half way. I like them still icy and it tastes like a sorbet or such. The best.

Are we allowed strawberries on OWL? Or are you using them as part of your carb allowance?

As an expert on cinnamon deficencies I can explain why you lost the weight. You see girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. Obvioulsy you were low on spice and by giving yourself the spice you recombobulated your metabolism, so as a reward it let you drop a pound...

You see it can all be explained scientiffically
Hope this helps

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, but after doing a little research, I was amazed at the power of cinnamon!

Thanks for pointing out this little gem!

Here is a very good article for the "world's healthiest foods" list, including ways to incorporate it into your diet.

And here's another article that addresses benefits, toxicity, and tested "dosages":

Still wondering ... do you have to eat the full teaspoon all at once for benefit or can you spread it out thru the day?

most research has stated that the serving could be broken up, most mention twice daily. I don't think it matters. I think since it stablizes blood sugar, it can't hurt to break up the servings since that's the need for stablization that diabetics need. That might be why it causes weight loss for some as well. Stable sugars are always a good thing

here is how they tested it (2x a day):

The 40-day study, of 60 people in Pakistan with Type 2 diabetes, found that one gram a day of cinnamon -- one-fourth of a teaspoon twice daily -- significantly lowered the subjects' blood sugar, triglycerides (fatty acids in the blood), LDL (or "bad") cholesterol, and total cholesterol.

Don't go bananas with this, of course. In high doses -- no one knows exactly how much -- cinnamon is believed to be toxic, according to Richard Anderson, a researcher at the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center in Maryland, part of the US Department of Agriculture, who conducted the study in Pakistan.

Good Lord don't do that! LOL!

Just throw in a couple of dashes in your coffees & hot teas. A teaspoon at a time would be like putting a teaspoon of pepper on a boiled egg! IGH!

I'm going to have to go buy myself some low carb yogurt to put this in. I don't drink coffee and hate the mess with making yocheese. I think tonight I'll mix up some creme cheese splenda and cinnimon. I love cinnimon so I hope that this works.

I've been taking cinnamon capsules for about 6 months now. I get them online, and the ones I use are called Cap-T-Cin. You can do a search and find them. I take one with breakfast, one with dinner, which is about 1/2 tsp total. It has lowered my blood sugars.

After reading this thread earlier I made Linda Sue's cheesecake squares and added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the recipe. These are always a little eggy but this time they're wonderful. The cinnamon gets rid of that egg taste. I'm still trying to think of other things I can put cinnamon on.

When brewing the coffee, add the cinnamon to the grounds. Or just sprinkle in a cup, not a whole teaspoon for a cup, just a tad bit.

There are many ways to add cinnamon to your diet. It is not that much for a teaspoon to go into some form or another. Sprinkle on top of LC cheesecake, melt butter and cinnamon and splenda for a topping for LC vanilla ice cream... cinnamon dissolves better in warm temp, so if you want to add it to iced tea, try brewing the tea with the cinnamon already in
