You may have heard of the fashion for “fat burning water”. But do you know exactly how it works, how water removes fat from your system?
Certainly, water is not some kind of quick fix or magic supplement for everyone who diets. The fact is, your body needs water to keep it hydrated enough for you to function normally. Water is also needed to cleanse your body of toxins and other unwanted substances. Body fat deposits are difficult to remove, but with the help of good nutrition and exercise, they can really be shed.
When it comes to removing fat from your body, water is the primary vehicle. Substances from the breakdown of fat are eliminated from your system by the water you ingest. The water then carries these toxins to the bladder, where they are expelled from your body through the urine. The whole body functions like a well-oiled machine where water is used as a lubricant. Make it a habit to consume about 8-10 glasses of water each day to make sure your body is performing at its best. Here is a recipe for creating a very energizing preparation of fat-burning water.
Water (2 liters)
Ginger (1 tsp, freshly grated)
Cucumber (1, medium, sliced)
Lemon (1, sliced)
Mint leaves (12)
Mix in a pitcher before going to bed. Refrigerate and then drink throughout the next day. Consider using organic products for your ingredients. If these are not available to you, be sure to thoroughly wash all of the ingredients before adding them to water.
