DIY: Fat-Flushing Weight Loss Drink

Updated on March 20, 2015

Summer is near! It’s only a few months away. You must be excited to frolic under the sun and chill at the beach. But, is your body beach-ready yet? If not, you might want to trim down the weight you gained from the holidays. Here check out this DIY fat-flushing weight loss drink that will help you get your best look on the beach. It’s natural, cheap and easy to make. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t try this weight loss drink.

Here’s what you need to create this awesome weight loss drink:

Cucumber

First, you need a cucumber. Cucumber is an awesome ingredient for weight loss. In fact, it’s one of the healthiest foods in the world. It’s high in fiber and alkaline. Thus, it can flush out the unwanted fat and toxins away from the body. Also, it’s a low calorie food. So you don’t have to worry if you feel like eating it.

Lemon

Second thing you need is lemon. “Why lemon?” you might ask. Lemon is an excellent source of Vitamin C and dietary fiber. Vitamin C serves as an antioxidant. It removes the harmful chemicals inside the body and it makes the skin glow. And just like cucumber, it also has low calories.

Lime

Lime is the next ingredient for this cheap yet effective weight loss drink. And like lemon, it’s a low calorie food that’s rich in fiber and vitamin C. Lemon works well with lime but if there’s no lime available in your area, you can use oranges.

Mint Leaves

Another ingredient you need is mint leaves. Mint produces a cool flavor and it also serves as a diuretic. Diuretics can accelerate weight loss because they promote the excretion of water from your body. If there are no mint leaves available in stores near you, you can always use mint extract.


Water

Lastly, you need water. As obvious as it is, water is a healthy ingredient that hydrates and cleanses our body.

Now, here’s how to make this drink:

  • First wash the lemons, lime, mint leaves and cucumber
  • Next, peel off the lemons and lime then slice them into thin pieces.
  • Then, slice the cucumber into pieces.
  • Now, put the lemons, lime, mint leaves (or mint extract) and cucumber in the pitcher of water and then stir.
  • After that, refrigerate for at least 5 hours. But if you want your drink to be tastier, you can refrigerate it overnight.

Voila! It’s done! It’s so simple, right? Without a doubt, this weight loss drink is effective. However, it won’t give you a Ryan Gosling-esque physique overnight. For optimum results, you should drink this at least twice a day. If twice a day is not enough for you, don’t worry. You can have as much as you can because it’s low calorie.

Also if you want to accelerate your weight loss progress, you should workout regularly and live a healthy lifestyle. Here’s a workout routine that will help you trim your midsection faster. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. So if you want to reach your goal, keep working out, eat healthy and drink this amazing weight loss drink.
