3 Effectively relevant drinks to reduce body weight?


To reduce body weight:

If you want to burn fat and lose weight—once and for all!—then it may be time to kick start your metabolism, flush out your system and clean out those toxins that are causing you to put on the pounds. A cleansing drink can do just that, and more. Read on to find out three of the best, results-driven drinks that will kick start your body to fat burning and serious weight loss!

COFFEE

Coffee is used by people around the world to boost energy levels and lift the mood. This is because coffee contains caffeine, a substance that acts as a stimulant in the body and may benefit weight loss. Coffee can reduce energy intake and boost metabolism, which may help you lose weight. One study in 33 overweight adults found that those who drank coffee containing 6 mg of caffeine per kilogram of body weight consumed significantly fewer overall calories than those who drank less caffeine or no caffeine at all. Caffeine intake has also been shown to increase metabolism and promote fat burning in several other studies. Coffee drinkers may have an easier time maintaining their weight loss over time, as well.

LIME AND HONEY

If you want a morning cleansing drink to perk you up (with the caffeine that your triple latte brings on), you’ll want to make the lime and honey drink your morning drink of choice. Unlike other, more complex cleansers, this drink only requires to have three ingredients on hand: fresh limes, raw honey, and water. Start off with a hot cup of water. Then, add one tablespoon of raw honey and stir until it’s mixed completely into the water. Slice up a lime (if it’s small, use the whole thing) and squeeze the juice and pulp of ½ a lime into the cup. Get out all the pulp you can—the pulp is where the nutrients are—you don’t want to miss out.

BLACK TEA

Like green tea, black tea contains compounds that may stimulate weight loss. Black tea is a type of tea that has undergone more oxidation (exposure to air) than other types of teas, resulting in a stronger flavor and darker color. Black tea is high in polyphenols, including a group of polyphenolic compounds called flavonoids. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants that may help reduce body weight. Studies have shown that the polyphenols found in black tea promote weight loss by reducing calorie intake, stimulating fat breakdown and boosting the growth of friendly gut bacteria.
