Natural Fat Burning drinks To Help You Lose Weight Fast
1. Turmeric Tonic
Turmeric is a popular spice in Indian cooking. It is rich in antioxidant curcumin and has a long-standing history of medicinal usage throughout the centuries. One of the main causes of excess weight gain is stress and inflammation.
It appears that there are health benefits to including turmeric in your diet. The golden spice supports immune health, helps relieve pain, and can aid in digestion, among other things. But because of some of its side effects, turmeric may not be worth taking for some people.
Turmeric helps fight both and as a result, is one of the most important ingredients for weight loss. Curcumin in turmeric induces the expression of adiponectin fat-burning hormone and regular intake of this herb can even prevent the adverse effects of obesity.
- 2 cups of coconut water
- Half an inch of dried turmeric root or 1 tsp organic turmeric powder
- ½ inch fresh grated ginger
- 1 tsp organic raw honey
- Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Mix all ingredients and strain the liquid to remove the dried ginger root pieces. Drink before mealtimes to burn fat and suppress appetite.
Note: Pregnant women should avoid taking turmeric supplements because of its blood-thinning effects. Adding small amounts of turmeric to food as a spice should not cause health problems.
2. Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea
I love hot beverages on cold afternoons so this warm tea is one of favorite hot fat burning drink recipes when I am looking for an afternoon pick-me-up.
- 2 cups of water, boiled.
- 1 tsp each freshly grated Ginger root and freshly grated turmeric root or you can use ½ tsp of their organic powders.
- Juice of ½ lemon/lime
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 tbsp raw organic Manuka honey (or use local organic honey. Manuka honey is much more medicinal than regular honey).
Boil the water and add all other ingredients except for honey and lemon juice. Remove from heat and steep the tea for 3-5 minutes covered. You can strain the mixture if you are using the roots. Add the honey and lime juice. Enjoy hot!
3. Lemon Water
The high pectin content of lemons balances the blood sugar, boosts metabolisms and burns fat. This is why many people drink lemon juice mixed with warm water and honey first thing upon waking up.
Lemon juice gently jump starts the digestion and encourages a bowel movement. It can aid in reducing constipation and detoxifies the body. The acidic lemon juice surprisingly alkalizes the body to prevent inflammation. Drinking lemon water every day is really good for your health.
Here is a wonderful post-meal fat burning homemade detox drink recipe

4. Ginger Tea
Ginger root aids in digestion and speeds up metabolism. It contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory gingerol resins that create a favorable environment for weight loss. Ginger tea is readily available in the form of tea bags but you can easily make it at home.

Carrots and celery are both low in fats and calories. Both are also rich in vitamins that break down glucose to boost metabolism. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and aids in digestion.
