So many people are swearing by cumin for weightloss!!??

I live in the middle east, and so many people around here are using cumin seeds to lose weight. They say it really decreases bloating if u wanna drink alot right before ur period, ( i totally feel like a balloon right then) and they say it decreases appetite. i went out n got some today, i'm just wondering if anyone's tried or heard of it. thanks state stories!Oh by the way, u prepare it like tea, boiling water, adding for like 10 minutes, then strain n drink with a bit of lemon juice. not that bad either.
