    Drink to Lose Weight

    That is super toxic.

    The car fumes that you inhale when you go out.

    The processed food that you eat and the beauty products that you use can disrupt your hormones.

    To respond to these toxins, your body produces fats or mucus to prevent your immune system from responding badly. Unfortunately, your body’s reaction caused accumulation of toxins in your system.

    Good thing is that our body has the body to restore itself and eliminate those toxins accumulated.

    This post will give you some simple tricks to start your weight loss journey. They are something that you can easily do in your own home.

    What to do in the Morning?

    • Prepare a cup of water.
    • Squeeze out the juice of one piece of lemon.
    • Add a teaspoon of raw apple cider vinegar.
    • Add a teaspoon of raw honey. A good replacement is Stevia.
    • Add half an inch of fresh ginger root or simply add ¼ teaspoon of ground ginger.
    • Mix them well.
    • Drink this every morning. You may have extreme reaction to this morning elixir. If you have, then you may eliminate the apple cider vinegar, until your body has adapted to it.

    What this morning drink can do to your weight loss journey is that it increases your digestive enzymes while stimulating your digestion. It also releases toxins and flushes out body fats.

    Since the morning drink is rich in vitamins and minerals, you’ll get a healthy dose of them in one drink. It can also help you control your weight while regulating your blood sugar.

    Other Drinks

    If you don’t like the taste of this morning elixir, you can just opt for a cup of green tea.

    Green tea is known for its tremendous health benefits. What’s more? It has zero calories.

    Another drink you can have in the morning to jumpstart your weight loss is mint tea. It doesn’t only ward off indigestion, but it also eases cramps. Since mint is an anti-spasmodic, it relaxes muscles to fight against stiffness and aches. The calories? Zero.

    If you’re not that type of person who wants to drink tea in the morning, you may try drinking milk. But it must be 1% milk with reduced-fat. It protects you against osteoporosis. Your body absorbs it slowly letting you stay full longer.

    Because it stabilizes your blood sugar level, you’re less susceptible to indulge in your sweet cravings.

    Soy milk is also great as it lowers your risk of suffering from a heart disease. But don’t drink too much of it as soy contains phytoestrogens, which may increase your risk of having breast cancer. Talk to your doctor first before starting a habit of drinking soy milk for your weight loss goal.

    Then, there’s hot chocolate. It improves mood while protecting you against heart disease. But don’t drink too much of it as this drink contains 195 calories for every 8 ounces of cocoa.

    Other ideal morning drinks to jumpstart your weight loss will include cranberry juice and orange juice.
