Weight loss: Flat tummy water recipe

  • This weight loss recipe will not only help you get hydrated, but it will help you flush out toxins, feel full and can lose weight fast.
  • Please remember any kind of store-bought appetite suppressant can be dangerous and may not necessarily help you with your weight loss goals.
  • There are so many weight loss recipes out there and it can be very misleading.
  • A healthy diet, exercise and self-control are key factors to successful weight loss.
  • New studies show that diet drinks actually make you fat.
  • Naturally flavored and infused waters are a favorite when it comes to weight management.
  • They taste deliciously good and you control the ingredients.
  • Please make sure you use filtered water to get the full benefits.
  • In order to lose weight it is recommended to eat and drink more of the following:
  • Cucumbers:
  • They are low in calories, act as a diuretic, high in dietary in fiber, and help keep the body alkaline. Cucumbers are a perfect weight loss food.
  • Ginger:
  •  A study from the Institute for Human Nutrition at Columbia University showed that when participants drank a hot beverage with ginger, they felt more full and had less chance of overeating.
  • Lemon:
  • They are high in pectin fiber, which helps suppress food cravings. It also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it. Lemons are alkaline forming and will aid with weight loss.
  • Mint:
  • You may not have thought of mint as an appetite suppressant, but it is. Not only will it give the water a refreshing flavor it will stop food cravings too.
  • Water:
  • Water is life. It keeps the body hydrated, which is important because dehydration can slow down the fat burning process. It lubricates joints and muscles during exercise and helps the blood supply oxygen to muscles. Water also helps feel full during meals, so we don’t overeat.
  • Flat tummy water recipe:
  • In a BPA-free pitcher or mason jar, add the following:
  • 6 cups of filtered water
  • 1 tbsp of grated ginger
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced

  • Drink it all the next day and enjoy!

  • If you can’t find fresh ginger, you can also use organic ginger root powder.
  • Use 1 Tbsp.
  • TIP: You can do this every other day for 1 week. This is safe and very hydrating too.
  • We recommend Aquasana as a reputable source for water filters. They are very affordable and give you clean, delicious and healthy water.
  • We recommend Living Tree Community Foods as a reputable source for the organic ginger root powder.
  • AS ALWAYS: Check with your health practitioner before you change your diet and see if this recipe or any weight loss recipe you wish to try are right for you. This drink is not meant to replace any treatment or drugs you are taking.

  12. My sister who’s a big girl has been drinking this for 3 months and she’s lost 21 kilos, she’s added walking 3-4 times a week with it also.
    She also says she still eats bad foods sometimes, even macca’s but not as much in one sitting as she would have previously.
    It encouraged my mom to try it and my mom has lost a kilo a week, 3 kilos so far. So tonight my friend and I decided to give it a shot. I’m relying on it because I’m going to Fiji in two months. So fingers crossed it works for me too.
    They told me that I should expect to go to the toilet a lot for the first week and some tummy aches and nausea, but after that, my energy levels should be higher and sugar cravings should stop and also that I won’t be as hungry. But anyway, everybody is different, I’m giving it a go, see what happens.

  13. I am going to start to drinking diet water from today.Thanks for the advise

  14. I have a well and the water tests perfectly (we have had it done in last year) do I need to filter it?
