It can be challenging to find fat burning drinks that help you to stay healthy and maintain your weight loss progress. Some companies produce drinks that they claim will keep you hydrated and be a benefit to your health, but the fact is that many of them come loaded with excess sugar and calories and are generally not beneficial for your health, let alone your waistline.
If you like me and always love sipping on something while working or chatting, it’s important to stick to healthy low-calorie drinks in order to avoid excess calories on a daily basis.
Luckily, there are great choices that you can make to burn belly fat and maintain your weight loss. I would recommend you to start consuming at least a couple of drinks from this list
As for me, I drink a big jar of warm water (with a little bit of lemon) every single morning because it’s a great way to boost your metabolism (and improves regularity!). I take a small cup of ACV lemonade before my meals for better digestion and lower insulin levels (a very good idea for those with diabetes or insulin resistance). And while working on the computer, I’m sipping on different warm teas from this list.
Okay, now let’s just get straight in to it!
10 Fat burning drinks for a flat belly:
Apple cider vinegar
The first drink that is a great benefit to fat loss is apple cider vinegar. The acid in the vinegar helps to suppress fat accumulation. That’s why it’s so popular as a fat-burning drink. When used with a healthy diet and exercise, it can help you to lose weight. Consuming apple cider vinegar with a high carbohydrate meal can help you increase insulin sensitivity and help you burn belly fat. It’s also shown that it may help you feel fuller for longer. In addition, it is also safe to consume every day with little known health side effects.
Another great drink that you can choose every day is water with lemon. Beginning each morning by drinking warm water mixed with lemon juice can have amazing results when it comes to maintaining or kick-starting weight loss. Being a citrus fruit, it is also full of antioxidants and vitamins that help you stay healthy overall. There is also some evidence that suggests that lemon juice helps increase your metabolic rate, which means that you are going to burn calories faster. Again, this is another drink that you can consume every day without having to worry about ill health side effects.
Ginger tea is a great addition to your diet and exercise efforts. You can make this drink by slicing a ginger root and adding the raw pieces to a cup of warm water. Ginger is known for its regulatory effects on various systems in the body including blood sugar and cholesterol. It may also help aid in digestion and can ease an upset stomach. This drinking habit combined with a good diet and exercise not only help you to maintain good health but also help you to lose weight. it also helps reduce the production of the hormones that stimulate the feeling of hunger, which can help reduce your tendency to overeat. It’s important to note that you can’t just take ginger and expect to lose weight, you actually have to try this along with diet and exercise.
To promote weight loss use can opt for really simple things such as spearmint tea. Its first benefit is as an appetite suppressant. Eating fewer calories and feeling fuller sooner will help you to lose weight. Not only this, but it is a zero-calorie beverage, which means by drinking this drink you can stay hydrated without consuming extra calories and still enjoy a delicious beverage. It can also help to aid digestive upsets and calm nausea. If you suffer from constant bloating and gas, spearmint tea is a great tea for you! So definitely give it a try!
Another great natural tea beverage is green tea. Ingredients in green tea such as caffeine and polyphenols may have an effect on metabolism rates. There are some studies that suggest that green tea can help increase metabolism by up to 4%.
It is also a great way to get an infusion of caffeine into your day to increase your energy without feeling too jittery. This can help you to burn more calories throughout the day and keep you active, especially if you hit afternoon slumps easily. Green tea can be drunk as a beverage or there are compounds and supplements available over-the-counter that contain green tea. it is important to note that it needs to be added as part of an overall lifestyle change.
