It’s easy for us to dismiss something healthy as not delicious or that it doesn’t work because we don’t see any changes to our body or our weight even. But truth be told, we are missing out on a lot because we are still clinging to the taste of our favorite drinks and food. The changes that we seek starts when we really change our eating and drinking habits to something healthier.
If you are wondering how to make yourself lose weight, you might want to try these water detox hacks that can help remove the toxins from your body so that your organs can function better. Here are some examples for you to try.
- Freeze lemon slices. You’ve probably come across detox recipes that involve lemon because of its antibacterial, antioxidant, and antiviral properties and these recipes are definitely worth trying out. However, if you don’t want to mix ingredients, just slice some lemons, place them in a sealable plastic bag, and pop them in the fridge to chill. Get one or two of these slices once they are chilled and place them in a glass of water for you to sip on.
- Apple cider vinegar detox. Apple cider vinegar is perfect for getting a detox as its acidic properties can help balance your body’s alkaline levels. Another reason why you should try this detox out is that it is quite easy to prepare and will help clear up any toxins in your body so you’ll feel in the best of health. You will need a large pitcher, ½ cucumber thinly sliced, one lemon, thinly sliced, 1.5 liter of filtered water, 4 sprigs of mint, and 2 to 6 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Fill the pitcher with lemon and cucumber slices plus the sprigs of mint before adding water. Leave some room for the apple cider vinegar. Add a tablespoon of ACV then another until you are satisfied with the taste. Put in the fridge to drink tomorrow.
- Freeze fruit for detox drink. Another water detox hack that you can make is to freeze slices of fruits then add them to your drink later on. This is fairly simple to put together too because you only need to slice the fruits that you want and place them in an ice tray. Put some water on them and pop them in the freezer. You can then place them in your glass of water the following day and sip to get the nutrients that they contain to flush your system.
- Watermelon mint detox. The combination of watermelon and mint not only promotes better digestion but also liver and kidney functions too. Just muddle the mint and watermelon slices in a pitcher. Add some ice and water and let the mixture steep overnight. Drink the detox water the following day to help improve your overall function.
These are just a few water detox hacks that you will want to try if you want to improve your digestion and to increase your energy levels naturally.
