Since the surge of obesity is on its peak these days, weight loss solutions and recipes are a dime a dozen! But not all are free of side effects. Well, I have already sung praises of water and how it is the best bet for people aiming to lose weight, but did you know that adding certain fruits / vegetables / other ingredients to water can boost its efficacy in preventing weight gain a great deal? Well it can, and I'll show you how and why.
If you are reading this, I am sure you have already done a lot of research on weight loss. And I am also sure you must, by now, have learned a thing or two about detoxification. For those who have not – while the word "detoxification" has a rather … scary, serious medical procedure-y feel to it, it is nothing more than the cleansing of the body. Simply put, detox water helps kick up the digestion and boosts the immune system, thus helping in weight loss. Moreover, it simply makes drinking a good amount of water easier and more fun!
So … yes, even though your research might have done you some good, what you may not have landed on is some delicious recipes of detox water to add a kick of flavor to your water!
Here is where you want to be!
- Watermelon detox water – Could it get any easier? Dice up a nice, cold watermelon, fill up a jug of water and add them to it. Drink it every day, as many times as you'd like. It makes for a tasty, refreshing drink that also boosts metabolism.
- Citrus boost detox water – This drink, that is loaded with the most sought after nutrients like Vitamin C, is made up of the ultimate refreshing trio – mint, cucumbers and lime. Slice these veggies and put them in your pitcher containing the water and keep it in the refrigerator. Let it sit there for a bit, and then drink up and feel the toxins leaving your body!
- Detox water with Chia Seeds – If you want to try something different and more filling, this is the drink for you.

- Apple Cider Vinegar – This rather strong, tangy tasting ingredient is known worldwide for its detoxifying abilities. Add it to one of the recipes mentioned above or simply to a glass of plain drinking water and it should help you shed pounds faster than you can say "Apple Cider Vinegar"! Adding Apple Cider Vinegar to the cucumber, lime and mint detox drink mentioned earlier will definitely amplify its detoxifying properties substantially.
These are all recipes that include fruits and vegetables that are easily bought from all stores. Other recipes include infusing water with apples and cinnamon, or with organic lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. It is really about how YOU like your detox water.
