5 Drinks to Help Lose Weight

Losing weight is a sensitive issue to many. We try a lot of things to reach the ideal body weight and type we want. A lot has to do with the food we eat and the calories we intake. Here are some drinks that can help you in your journey towards weight loss.

1. Water

I am not kidding when I say you need to drink a lot of water to lose weight. Not only for weight but it solves a lot of skin issues too. Many drinks that we buy from stores have a ton of sugar added to them, while energy drinks might make you feel energized, it’s the sugar that is doing the most harm to you. Make a point to drink more water than energy drinks and soft drinks.

2. Vegetable juice / Vegetable Smoothie

Vegetables are healthy, we all know that. If we could turn them into drinks and fulfill our drinking quota, how cool would that be? Now, vegetable juice can be yummy or inedible to you depending on the vegetables you use. I mean I don’t want to be gulping down bitter gourd juice, even though it is one of the healthiest ones. Cucumber, carrot, cabbage, celery, kale, spinach, and wheatgrass are some of the popular smoothie veggie options.

3. Green tea

Green tea is said to increase metabolism and help lose weight. If you are a person who can’t live without tea, then it is a great idea to switch it with green tea instead. Hot or iced, depending on your preference. For it to be a low-sugar option, add honey instead of sugar. Honey is a healthy sweetener for almost anything you use sugar for.

4. Black Coffee

Like green tea, black coffee also helps boost metabolism and helps lose weight. It is also a good switch to make if you keep drinking a lot of coffee and need to reduce it. It is stronger than the one with milk so you do not constantly feel the need for drinking a lot of coffee.

5. Fruit juice / Smoothie

Fruits like vegetables are our staple healthy food. Unlike vegetables, most fruits juices are tastier and people take them regularly. Instead of buying tetra packs of fruit juices, try making them fresh. That way you know the amount of sugar going into it, which can be none if you make it at home with seasonal fruits.

Taking care of what you put in your body is important. May it be food or drinks, be aware of what you intake and also the sugar content that your drinks have.
