Don’t starve yourself to lose belly fat. Getting rid of belly fat is simpler than you might think. There is not better and easy option than detox water. This cleansing process speeds up the metabolism, thus burns more calories and melt the fat. If you’re not drinking detox water then you are missing out a very effective belly fat losing trick!
Here are 6 easy detox recipes that can effectively help you lose belly fat in a short period of time:
- Carrot Juice:
Ingredients you need:
- 3 carrots,
- 1 medium cucumber,
- 1 apple,
- half lemon.
Combine the ingredients in a juicer and process everything well. Drink fast, before the antioxidants get destroyed. This detox drink contains large amounts of vitamin C, vitamin A, powerful fat and toxin-flushing antioxidants.
- Citrus Detox Drink:
Here is another juice that has amazing detox power:
- ½ gallon water,
- 6 wedges pink grapefruit,
- 1 tangerine,
- ½ cucumber,
- 2 mint leaves,
Rinse grapefruit, tangerine and cucumber. Slice them or peel. Then combine all the ingredients in a half gallon pitcher. Allow to sit for 2 hours for maximum benefits. Drink it throughout the day.
- Green Smoothie:
All you need:
- half a cup cool green tea,
- juice of ½ lemon,
- 1 banana (blended).
The great thing about this juice is that it tastes very nice. It is a little difficult to prepare because it requires blending, juicing and tea brewing. But it’s worth it – the EGCG in green tea acts together with the lemon juice to rapidly detoxify your body. EGCG is absorbed better in an acidic environment and in a combination with minerals like the potassium from the banana.
- Turmeric tea:
Turmeric is a very effective liver-detoxifying agent. Turmeric tea not only flushes toxins from your liver, but it also prevents gallstones and cleans your bowels. It also settles down your stomach after a big meal.
Ingredients you need:
- half a teaspoon of turmeric,
- juice of half a lemon,
- a pinch of ginger powder,
- a cup of water.
Mix everything up and consume throughout the day. You can improve it’s taste by adding a banana, but don’t add too much, as the sugar from the banana will slow down the cleansing action of the turmeric. If consumed regularly, this drink can help you reach your weight loss goals in a relatively short period of time.
Start the day with lemon juice in hot water. It will help in good digestion and spur up your energy level to do your whole day’s work. Lemonade is ideal for detoxing the body, burning fat, and obtaining vitamin C and antioxidants.
Combine 2 cups water and 1/4 cup peeled grated ginger. Bring to a boil, and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool. Don’t forget to strain ginger mixture and discard solids. Then add 4 cups water, 2 cups of fresh lemon juice and 2-3 tbsp of honey. Stir well! You can store it in a water bottle and drink it throughout the day.
- Ginger Tea:
Ginger improves the digestion and speeds up the metabolism, making it a very effective fat burning food. Also, it reinforces the feeling of satiety, which prevents cravings.
Boil 2 cups of water for few minutes and add 1-2 inch of sliced ginger to it. Simmer it for 5 – 10 minutes and then remove it from the stove. Then add 1 freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1 tbsp of honey. Blend well and have a cup of this ginger tea in the morning.
