Every good weight loss plan emphasizes hydration. Healthy, non-processed beverages, including H2O, take the edge off of hunger and help you feel fuller. Drink at least one full glass of water on an empty stomach before every meal or snack to reduce the chance you’ll overeat.

Detox Drinks for Weight Loss

However, choosing these homemade detox drinks can enhance the hydration process and weight loss! A detox drink is a beverage made with whole foods that naturally help the body rid itself of toxins—no wacky supplements or expensive spa trips required. Many are filled with vitamins and minerals from whole herbs, fruit, and vegetables.

For example, the humble-looking ginger root has long been used as a natural detoxification ingredient. It’s believed to work by stimulating digestion and circulation to clean out waste build-up. Likewise, cucumber, another popular detox drink ingredient, also contains high water levels to flush out toxins and anti-inflammatories. Other common detox ingredients include lemon water, beetroot, cinnamon, honey, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, and berries.
