Detox water recipes for weight loss

Drinking water is incredibly important for your body and health.

Roughly 60% of the human body is made of water, ensuring you drink enough water every day is essential for every bodily function (1).

Water helps regulate your body temperature. Water also metabolizes and transports all the foods we eat in the body.

It flushes out harmful toxins out of the body as well as lubricates your joints.

Simply put, water is a nutrient to the life of every cell of our bodies.

Drinking water is even often associated with dietary means for weight loss and overweight prevention.

According to one study, water can work as a natural appetite suppressant when drank before meals for its ability to reduce hunger and causing people to eat fewer calories (2).

In another study, people who drank water before eating their breakfast consumed 13% fewer calories during the actual meal (3). 

In two other studies, participants saw a 24-30% increase in resting metabolism within 10 minutes of drinking water, which lasted about 60 minutes (4, 5).

Drinking water can boost your metabolism and help you lose weight.

But despite all these incredible health benefits of drinking water, most people aren't drinking enough (6). 

Why, because plain water is tasteless and boring.

This is where detox water comes in. 

Detox water is an infused water with a certain type of fruits and vegetables with detoxing effects. Not only will they help you hydrate your body, but also they taste incredibly good and will increase your body's ability to metabolize fat cells more efficiently.

Infused detox water is full of vitamins and nutrients that will make you healthier and more energized.

Luckily, they are easy to make and portable to bring along with you and sip all day as a delicious hydrating calorie free treat.
