When it comes to weight loss, lemon water is helpful.

The polyphenols, which are plant compounds that also act as antioxidants, in lemon peel, some of which are also found in the juice, may help stimulate the liver to burn fat.

However, Lemon juice should not only be taken in the morning, but should be used as a substitute for other beverages that are higher in calories, like coffee with sugar or fruit juices etc.

2. Vegetable juice

Integrating green juice into your regular diet helps you shed the extra kilos naturally because juicing enhances your digestion and elimination system and the accumulated waste leaves your body and makes you more supple and efficient in digesting regular food.

You also stop craving junk foods. You get into the natural habit of declining processed sugar and opting for fruits or raw vegetables instead.

3. Fruit infused water

Fruits and dietary fibre such as lemon, cucumber, ginger and mint are all infused into the water to make this healthy weight loss drink.

The cucumber is a great anti-inflammatory substance. Ginger is a great fat burner which allows blood vessels to expand leading to better blood circulation and it also boosts metabolism. Due to its rich contents of vitamin C and antioxidants, lemon, alongside burning fat in your body, boosts your energy. Mint not only calms down your cravings but also soothes tummy after you indulge in foods. Water keeps you hydrated.
