Detox Water to Lose Belly Fat: 7 Best Recipes

Looking for the best detox water to lose belly fat? This post contains our favorite detox water recipes that help aid digestion, reduce bloating, and promote belly fat loss.

You’ve heard it a million times before, because it’s true – staying hydrated is one of the most important things that you can do when it comes to losing weight.

Scientists and experts all agree that drinking water can help to boost your metabolism, especially if it’s the first thing that you do in the morning after you wake up. Drinking water can also help you control hunger and remove the toxins that are in your body.

Detox water takes the benefits of hydration even further, because it combines various ingredients that increase your body’s ability to burn fat and flatten your belly, all while tasting amazing.

What Is Detox Water?

Many people complain that they don’t like drinking water all day because it’s tasteless and doesn’t satisfy their cravings. This is especially true if you’re attempting to give up taste bud-tantalizing drinks like soda or coffee.

If you’re not a fan of drinking water but want to stay hydrated, then detox water is a great option.

Detox water is water that’s been infused with fruits, vegetables, and/or herbs to enhance the flavor. But even more importantly, it helps you flush out toxins, increase your energy, and lose weight.

Benefits Of Detox Water

The exact properties of detox water vary depending on the ingredients you use and the strength of the infusion, however, it’s low in calories and is a definite improvement in taste over flavorless water.

Additionally, it can improve digestive health, mood, and energy levels. Check out these other amazing benefits of detox water:

  • Removes toxins
  • Cleanses the liver
  • Increases metabolism
  • Supports fat burning
  • Reduces hunger
  • Promotes clearer skin
  • Improves digestion
  • Increases energy
  • Balances the pH levels in the body

Best Detox Water Ingredients

You can infuse your water with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. If your goal is to burn fat and flatten your belly, these are the ingredients should be at the top of your list:

  • Lemon – reduces bloating and aids in digestion
  • Cucumber – contains electrolytes that reduce water retention
  • Ginger – stimulates fat burning and improves digestion
  • Grapefruit – shown to reduce insulin and encourage weight loss
  • Watermelon – contains potassium, which helps balance sodium in the body
  • Mint – suppresses appetite and stimulates the digestive system
  • Oranges – rich in vitamin C, which helps eliminate toxins
  • Cinnamon – speeds up the metabolism

How To Make Detox Water

Many people choose to use a fruit infuser bottle, but you can create these simple concoctions with your favorite pitcher as well. The benefit of a pitcher is that you can easily refill your glass and see how much you are drinking each day.

Another idea is to use a pitcher, then pour your detox water into individual reusable bottles so that you can have the convenience of a grab-and-go situation, much like sodas or bottled water.

Here’s how to make detox water using a pitcher:

  • Place your ingredients at the bottom of the pitcher.
  • Cover with ice until the pitcher is about halfway full.
  • Fill the rest of the pitcher with water.

Chill in the refrigerator for an hour before serving to ensure that the ingredients have enough time to infuse the water properly. You can refill the container with ice and water 2-3 times before it begins to lose flavor.
