10 Detox Water Recipes for Weight Loss

Most people are guilty of not getting enough water into their diet.  Ourselves included.

This seems to happen for a few reasons:

  1. We drink other things that taste better.
  2. Water can be pretty boring.

The problem is that water intake is incredibly important to our health.  It helps remove fat cells from the body, increases the body’s metabolism, and helps control cravings.

That’s why Lauren and I created these detox water recipes.

These waters are great for:

Replacing high-calorie snacks
– Getting you to drink more water in general
– Helping you through times of cravings
– Taking cute Instagram photos
– General detox
– Extra energy
– Using up that last bit of fruit in your fridge
– Putting a smile on your face
