Detox water for weight loss?
There’s no other more important detox rule than this one: hydration! Whether you’re trying to lose a few pounds or you just want to flush the toxins out of your body, hydration is the key to making this successful. Start every morning by drinking two large glasses of pure water to kickstart your metabolism and help your body perform at its best.
If you add extra ingredients to enrich the minerals, vitamins and enzyme intake, than you’ve already reached the next level to naturally detox and feel energized! Although these are only added for taste and nutrients, you can eat them after you consume the infused water.
There are many ingredients that you can add in your water to boost the taste and help you flush the toxins out. Here are the all time favorites:
Kiwi, lemons, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, apples – they’re all packed with enzymes and antioxidants to kick-start your body natural detox function, but also to nourish your cells with vitamins (especially vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-age ally). Fruits boost your metabolism and help the body eliminate the waste more rapidly.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider acts like a general toner for your body and especially for the digestive system. It soothes the digestive issues, has antibiotic effects, prevents indigestion and aids in weight loss. The acetic acid suppresses the appetite, reduces water retention and interferes with the ingested starches, reducing the number of calories that will enter into your bloodstream. It also reduces the water retention and help your body burn fats.
Maybe you didn’t think before about adding cinnamon in other drink than tea or eggnog, but you can actually consider it for your detox waters. Cinnamon improves the insulin secretion, stabilizes the blood sugar levels and increase the glucose metabolism – all these are key effects for losing weight. Moreover, it installs the sensation of satiety and fullness. Pair it with honey and apple for a delicious taste and a speedy fat burn.
There isn’t a strict rule about making detox waters for weight loss. You just need to use pure or tap water, your favorite fat-burn ingredients and large pitchers to let the water infuse. The longer you infuse it, the strongest the flavor and more nutrients leaked into the water. Some of my favorite combinations include kiwi-mint-cucumber, carrot-cucumber-lemon or pineapple-lemon-coconut water – they are all detoxing and energizing.
