Lose Weight With Water Infusion

Updated on December 5, 2015

Water can be such a boring thing to drink sometimes, especially when you just switched to a new diet and your body is craving sugar or something that isn’t water. One of the things that I do, is mix some fruits into my water so it doesn’t taste too bland and I get the benefits of the vitamins from the fruit and the hydration from water. Not only is it good for you, but it also looks so cute. The colors are so vibrant and it’s an easy way to make drinking water less of a chore. It’s very simple to start, all you do is get a to go bottle and some fresh fruits, and of course some water, then let them sit in a bottle for about 30 minutes and you’re set! Try not to let the water sit it around for too long or it will become so strong that you might as well be eating a lemon. Here are a few of my favorite fruit mixes.


Lemon and Mint

The lemon mint water is such a refresher for me. I like this when I go out for a run or really early in the morning. Lemon is really good for your body and skin so that’s also a bonus. It's also very refreshing. It feels how the splash of water on someone's face in a commercial looks. Sometimes when you drink it, it almost taste like lemonade, which is always welcomed.


Strawberry, Lime and Cucumbers

This mix is for when I’m having lunch and I really do not want to drink juice. This really tastes as close to juice as possible and the fresh strawberries really gives it the sweetness that makes this a good substitute for juice. Overall, I feel so healthy having this and it really motivates me to stay on a healthy track. I still drink juice from time to time, but this really keeps me from deterring.

Honeydew, Canteloupe and Watermelon

This recipe is a really beautiful arrangement and tastes just as amazing. For some reason when I drink water I get bloated and when I drink this infusion I can toss back gallons without a repercussion. Sometimes, I grab the watermelon and eat it by itself, but it's better to leave it in the water. This is a bit more fresh than the others, but I guarantee you'll be refreshed afterwards.

The health benefits of these are amazing and they really do taste great. Fruit water flushes toxins from your body and skin, give you more energy during a workout, and fills you up so you do not overeat.

      It's extremely rare I drink anything other than water, I haven't had a soda in over 4 years. I like to mix lemons and cucumbers in my water for the natural fat burner effect. Thumbs up on your hub Celeb Scoops.
