Imagine lemon and water fuse overnight to create a natural detox, helping to flush impurities out of your body system and help you maintain a flat belly. The cucumber lends a cool refreshing flavor while the mint gives it a bit of a snap.
This is sassy water, a drink for weight loss and detoxification.
Sassy water has been named after Cynthia Sass, a nutritionist and the co-author of the bestseller book “The Flat Belly Diet”. It is said that this magical water has amazing effect on the digestive system and significantly relieves bloating. Nutritionists say that by regular consumption of this drink and moderate physical activity, it would melt the belly fat and help you finally get that flat and sexy stomach. People who have consumed this drink regularly say that the results they achieved are more than fantastic if you take in consider that you could lose up to 12 kilograms. However, sassy water is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers, nor for people having stomach problems or allergy to any of the ingredients listed.
The ingredients are 8 glasses of water, 1 teaspoon grated ginger root, 1 medium-sized cucumber peeled and cut into slices, 1 medium-sized lemon cut into slices, 12 fresh mint leaves and 1 teaspoon dried mint.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, leave them overnight, and it is best if you keep the bowl in the fridge. Consume 4-5 glasses during the whole day. You can start drinking it in the morning before your breakfast for better and instant results. You will feel like you have lost 1 pound after the first two hours.
This is best for natural belly slimming and detox. The ingredients are 3-5 slices of fresh cucumber, 1/2 small lemon sliced, 1/4 of orange sliced, a few fresh mint leaves, 24 oz of ice cold water.
Cucumbers prevent water retention and also have many anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon provides the cleansing effect of citric acid to help clear out the digestive system. Oranges contain flavonoids in the peel and juice that stimulate the immune system and protects against a fungi/pests while helping to reduce cholesterol levels. Mint helps the body digest more easily and it also soothes any stomach cramps you may have.
You should remember that the more you refill your jug, glass or bottle with the same fruits, the more diluted and less nutrient-dense the fruit becomes. So it is recommended that after 2 or 3 refills, dump it and replace with fresh cuts to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need.
Here you add watermelon to the sassy water. Watermelon is a terrific, low-calorie smoothie base. Not only is it a natural hydrator because of its water content, watermelon is also loaded with nutrients, including cancer-fighting lycopene, as well as an amino acid known as arginine.
Iced Peppermint Tea
This minty thirst quencher is super refreshing on a hot summer day, but it is also an effective belly flattener. Peppermint tea helps your stomach process fat, ensuring even high-fat foods like burgers and steaks are digested quickly, which helps prevent bloat.
This blended pineapple drink tastes like a beach vacation in a glass and it packs in two belly-flattening ingredients. A tablespoon of flaxseed oil adds monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), proven belly flatteners, and pineapple itself contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down protein, ease digestion, and banish bloat.
Besides reducing your risk of cancer and heart disease, green tea contains catechins, antioxidants that studies show can help reduce belly fat. If you sip green tea before a workout, these compounds can also increase your fat burn during aerobic exercise.
Dark Chocolate Shake
Dark chocolate helps you slim you down because it decreases appetite and lessens food cravings overall.
