Boost your metabolism: Citrus fruits and mint infused water

Citrus Fruits and Mint Infused Water

This weight loss recipe is an infused water, so it will not only help you get hydrated, but will help you flush out toxins and boost your metabolism.

It will help speed up the rate at which you burn calories and lose weight.

Please remember that any kind of store-bought appetite suppressant can be dangerous and may not necessarily help you with your weight loss goals.

There are so many weight loss recipes out there and it can be very misleading.

A healthy diet, exercise and self-control are key factors to successful weight loss.

Let’s look at the ingredients in this weight loss recipe:

 

Green tea:

  • There are three ingredients in green tea that help promote weight loss: Catechins, caffeine and theanine.
  • These compounds work together to block the enzymes responsible for storing fats in the body. Green tea is also very low in calories.
    (More studies need to be done on humans to prove the effectiveness of green tea for weight loss, but the results look very promising).
  • A study from Penn State shows that drinking green tea daily may boost weight loss.

Mint:

  • You may not have thought of mint as an appetite suppressant, but it is.
  • Not only will it give the water a refreshing flavor it will stop food cravings too.

Oranges:

  • They are a great food for weight loss because they are high in fiber and low in calories. Dietary fiber helps bring a feeling of fullness, so you eat less. Tangerines are also an excellent source of vitamin C.
  • A study from Arizona State University shows that a lack of vitamin C reduces the body’s ability to use fat as fuel, which leads to fat storage in the body.

Mix the following ingredients in a large BPA-free pitcher:

  • 10 cups of green tea or filtered water
  • 2 oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Refrigerate overnight and let the flavors infuse
  • Note: Drink at least 6 cups during the day to achieve the best results
  • Please make sure you use organic ingredients and filtered water in this weight loss recipe
  • Enjoy!

We recommend Aquasana as a reputable source for water filters.

 

AS ALWAYS: Check with your health practitioner before you change your diet and see if this recipe or any weight loss recipe you wish to try are right for you. This drink is not meant to replace any treatment or drugs you are taking.
