Happy Friday Everyone! Recently, I have been asked besides working out and eating SUPER clean other things do to maintain my weight. I would love to tell you I use multiple detox and juice cleansing recipes. BUT my busy mom schedule doesn’t allow for any strict, regimented detox plans. I do however have TWO very easy drinks that I incorporate into my everyday lifestyle. These drinks help me maintain my weight, stay hydrated and detox my body at the same time!
WATER is one of the best things you can give you body to help boost your metabolism. When we are dehydrated our bodies can’t burn fat as efficiently, so it’s more likely that your body will hold on to the lbs. It is said to stay properly hydrated we must drink HALF of our body weight in oz. So at 145 lbs my daily water intake should be 72oz.
TOP WAYS TO JAZZ UP WATER
LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL is beneficial to help detox our liver and lymphatic system! ADD two drops of Lemon essential oil to every glass of water you drink. Remove that toxic waste from your body girl, Lemon will help!
HOT LEMON WATER is the way to start your morning over coffee. BOOOO! Who wants to hear that, right! The proof is in the pudding, people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster. And good ole’ lemons will help make your body more alkaline!
MINT is my new favorite way to spice up my daily water! I love to muddle mint up leave it in the bottle and poor ice and then water. I let it infuse for 10-15 minutes while I am making breakfast in the morning. Mint water is such a refreshing way to start the day and it aids in digestion. Or just add a drop of Peppermint oil to a large water bottle, it’s very refreshing and totally keeps your breath minty fresh!
