Natural Belly Slimming Detox Water Recipe
Here is how to make a healthy natural belly slimming detox water recipe to help you lose a few extra pounds around your tummy. You will be using all-natural ingredients for this recipe, most of which I am sure you already have in your kitchen.
As always though, I highly recommend you check with your doctor before trying home remedies and recipes online. That’s because some of these remedies contain ingredients that may increase or decrease blood pressure and sometimes mess with blood-thinning medications.
What Is Detoxing?
Simply put, detoxing is ridding your body of harmful toxins that you acquire daily. It’s quite easy to get rid of toxins because the body already does 90% of the job by itself. I say 90% instead of 100% because of all the unhealthy foods and drinks we consume daily.
If you follow a healthy meal plan, drink enough water, get enough sleep, and exercise daily, you do not need to detox because your organs will function properly and remove harmful toxins from your body all on their own.
Unfortunately though, in this day and age, it’s extremely difficult to suppress our cravings. That’s why having a glass of detox water daily can yield a lot of benefits.
Signs You Need A Detox
There are many signs your body needs a detox but below are some of the most common symptoms of a toxic body worth noting.
- Weight gain
- Sleep disturbances
- Bad breath
- Stomach problems
- Skin problems
- Mood changes
How Does Detoxing Aid In Weight Loss?
Okay, so how in the world can detoxing help you lose 1kg in just one day? Well, I don’t want to float your boat but the initial weight you lose while detoxing is actually water weight. You are not losing any real fat and the weight usually comes back once you stop the detox.
Yeah I know, it’s discouraging but if you change your eating habits and reduce your calorie intake after detoxing, you can successfully lose a ton of weight and keep it off!
Natural Belly Slimming Detox Water Recipe
So it all started after I had my son a few years ago, I was diagnosed with prediabetes, high blood pressure, and iron deficiency! I knew I had to do something because I was soo overweight, moving around was next to impossible. I went to see a dietician and she created a diet plan for me to reduce my blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
Along with the diet plan, she also gave me the following belly-slimming recipe which to this day, I am extremely grateful for because it really helped me lose weight. Now, just to be clear, this drink alone will not help you lose weight, you really need to follow a healthy, low-calorie diet plan. That said, here is your recipe.
- 1 inch of ginger root (peeled and sliced)
- 5 cups of water
- 1 lemon/ lime (peeled and sliced into cubes)
- 10 fresh mint leaves
- 1 medium cucumber (sliced)
Preparation & Consumption
You can watch the complete process above or you can follow this: Boil 1 cup of water and add in the ginger, let it boil for 7 minutes, and add in the lemons, leave it to boil for an extra 3 minutes before removing it from the heat. Add in 2 glasses of water and pour it into a high-speed blender, blend until all the ingredients turn into liquid.
Strain the mixture and set it aside or pour it into a large pitcher. Add in the cucumber and mint leaves and set it in the fridge overnight. Drink this mixture 3 times per day preferably 30 minutes before meals.
How This Detox Water Work For Belly Fat
First off, this belly-slimming drink will help reduce your appetite and stop sugar cravings! That’s all thanks to the cucumber, lemon, and mint leaves. You see cucumbers contain dietary fiber which naturally keeps you feeling full longer and reduces hunger pangs.
Lemons and limes contain a type of fiber known as pectin which helps reduce appetite as well, while mint leaves calm your digestive tract and reduce sugar cravings. Lastly, ginger helps reduce inflammation in the body, speeds up the metabolism, reduces appetite, and aids in weight loss.
So what does this have to do with belly fat? Well, in most people, we tend to gain weight around the belly area first and when you start a diet a weight loss drink, it starts to clean out the colon of excess waste and water, therefore, making you lose belly fat first.
Also, most of the ingredients above are natural diuretics that will make you pee a lot within the first 24 hours, therefore, helping you successfully lose 1kg of water weight.
To get the best results out of this belly-slimming recipe, you will need to follow a low-calorie diet plan, drink up to 8 glasses of water daily and make sure to incorporate a little bit of exercise into your daily routine at least 4 times per week. In my case, I was put on a 45-minute walk every single day!
