We try doing everything that’s in our capacity to lose weight, from getting a gym membership to taking the stairs instead of elevators and also doing tricep-dips on the office chairs. Clearly, the thirst to get into shape is true. We all definitely must be aware of the famous equation that losing weight is 80% diet and 20% workout but we also know that this is only gonna happen if we follow both our diet and workout routines regularly, which means, umm… never? But yes! there is definitely a way to incorporate an easy and effective weight loss remedies into our daily routines without thinking too much about the time and money–weight loss drinks!
Check out some easy beverages that you can try that help aid weight loss.
Lemon juice, water and honey
This is perhaps the most known, quickest and the most effective concoction to try for the weight loss. Just Squeeze half a lemon into a glass of lukewarm water and add a spoon of honey. Drink it early in the morning during empty stomach for the better results. Ensure that the honey is 100% organic as sugar is something we’re completely looking at to avoid!
This drink aids in digestion, detoxifies our body and help in melting down fat by increasing the bile secretion which catalyse the breakdown of fats. It also help in improving our metabolism and avoiding constipation too. It’s time to switch our morning dose of caffeine to a glass of lemon water which is a tried and tested weight loss drink!
Apple cider vinegar, water and honey
Apple cider vinegar is power-packed with benefits, one of which is definitely weight loss. Intake of ACV keeps you feel fuller for longer time which in a way helps you loose weight. The reason behind the suppression of appetite is due to ‘pectin’ that is present in ACV. It works best when taken before meals dilute 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in about 8 ounces of water and sweetening it naturally by adding some organic honey(plain ACV will definitely make you gag because of its foul taste)! Also, ACV is works brilliant for hair and skin, so you should incorporate it in your daily routine!
Coconut water, pineapple and fennel seeds
A weight loss drink or a mocktail? We can barely differentiate. Who won’t love a delicious weight loss drink?
Just toss some of the pineapple pieces into a blender along with freshly extracted coconut water and ground fennel seeds. Your drink is ready! Coconut water suppresses the appetite and also help in boosting hydration. Pineapple is completely free from fats and also rich in the enzyme bromelain which is an excellent preference for weight reduction. Fennel seeds helps in boosting metabolism which helps burn fat quickly!
Cucumber, ginger and mint juice
Cucumber is the trust worthy ingredient when it comes to weight loss, as it’s naturally rich in water! In two well chopped cucumbers, add some grated ginger and mint leaves before blending it into a healthy, green juice. Have it before you go to sleep. Ginger acts great in reducing inflammations. No herb particularly helps in weight loss by itself, it can surely catalyse the existing benefits of the ingredients in the drink. Mint leaves give your body a fresh cleanse by detoxing it and prevent nausea.
In addition to these weight loss drinks, a little of workouts and a check on your diet is also must to get through your target. The drinks help in speeding up the process but if you’re going to binge on fries and pizzas all day long, they won’t really help!
So continue taking the stairs, keeping a check on the fried foods and sipping on these weight loss concoctions for the best results!
