We have all heard that starting the day with a glass of water is generally good for weight loss, but to make it more effective, try adding any of these ingredients. We guarantee that they work faster than even lemon water.
Green tea gets its name because of its colour, which occurs because it does not go through the extensive fermentation process of black tea. It is full of health-giving properties that arise from special types of flavonoids called catechins.
Experts recommend that a person who wants to lose weight drink the green tea brewed with fresh, hot water with no added sugar.
Coffee seems to work in weight reduction by giving a person the will and energy to exercise longer, which means that they burn more calories. It is best if the coffee is drunk black because adding cream and sugar defeats the purpose of trying to lose weight. Again, if black coffee is a bit too bitter, stevia can be added.
The interesting way ice water or any cold beverage causes weight loss is by forcing the body to work to maintain its normal internal temperature of 98.6 degrees. This causes the body to use energy, which burns calories. The best thing about drinking a glass of water is that the water itself has no calories at all. It actually costs the body more in the way of calories to drink the water than the water contains.
Health experts recommend that a person drinks an 8-ounce glass of ice water in the morning, at lunch and at dinner. This can cause the body to use up as much as 100 extra calories, which can result in a weight loss of 10 pounds over a year. If a person finds plain ice water day after day to be boring, they can liven it up with the addition of fresh fruits, herbs, and spices.
Losing weight doesn’t even have to involve something as strenuous as slicing lemons. All it takes is a couple of ice cubes and fresh water, a teabag or a spoonful of powdered green tea, some fresh ground coffee and fresh, boiling water.
