Have you been struggling to lose weight? Yes? Let me assure you: you are NOT alone. I have been on and off every single diet that was ever invented by humans and robots. I always get bored at the end, and I know how it feels to lose the freedom of eating what you crave spontaneously by following a planned diet.
I’m not inventing a new diet here; I’m just introducing you to an easy way to lose weight with one simple ingredient, water.
Water is the best fat-burning agent on the market. Your liver, which processes fat, needs a lot of water to function well. All you need is a handy refillable bottle of water. Set a target to refill it 4 times throughout the day, which means you should be gulping down 4 small whole bottles.
Detox water could be your savior from all the lousy diets you’ve been trying and failing. This approach to losing weight is miraculous for a variety of reasons:
- Drinks are so tasty, nothing to lose from enjoying them frequently.
- They’re easy to prepare. Most of the detox water recipes only take ten minutes to make.
- They’re an addictive and refreshing source of hydration.
Save the following top 3 detox water recipes for weight loss, de-stressing and skin care:
1. Belly Slimming Detox Water Recipe
3 mint Leaves
1 or 2 orange or grapefruit slices
2 lemon slices
2 cucumber slices
This great detox water not only rids your body of toxins, but helps to flush fat from your body as well. Cucumbers can help you avoid water retention. Lemons and limes help to flush out toxins while grapefruits help you burn fat.
Just add all the ingredients and allow them to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. Drink at least ½ gallon per day for best results.
2. Sexy Detox Water for Skin
1 to 2 L of water
5 sliced strawberries
1 sliced apple
1 tsp cinnamon
A handful of fresh mint leaves
Lemon aids digestion while strawberries have anti-aging properties and help fight poisons stored in your body. Apple has Vitamin C. It also helps improve your skin, repairs and maintains teeth and bones. Cinnamon improves circulation and controls calorie intake. Mint leaves help improve digestion and relieve stomach cramps.
Add all the ingredients together in a large container and refrigerate for 2 hours. Enjoy!
3. Ginger Lemon Detox Water
2 large sections of ginger
Ginger and lemon burn fat and detox your body. This is one of the top easy and fast detox waters to make.
Cut the lemons to thin slices; ginger will need to be cubed. Place the ginger in steamed water for 20 minutes. Add ice to the ginger water and cubes to cool it off, add all the lemons and then of course, water. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Enjoy!
In short, detox water helps you lose weight, rids your body of any excess waste, reduces bloating, refreshes you and boosts your energy.
