With summer on its way, we are all looking for some quick ways to get rid of that accumulated body fat since last summer holidays. Well, the good news is that there is such a quick solution to this problem.
For everyone who thought it would be impossible to replace loose dresses and shirts with a swimsuit, I offer you a miraculous drink which takes only minutes to make. The magic about this drink is that it is exceptionally effective in melting excessive belly fat.
To make this drink you will need the following ingredients:
• 8 ½ cups of filtered water
• 1 teaspoon of grated ginger (or a tablespoon of organic ginger root powder)
• 1 medium-size cucumber, thinly sliced
• 1 medium-size lemon, thinly sliced
• 12 mint leaves
Mix all the ingredients in a large pitcher and let all the flavors blend overnight. Remove the lemon slices, ginger and mint leaves from the pitcher before pouring the drink in a glass. I recommend you just “slurp” the entire amount in the pitcher by the end of the day! If you do not drink it all during the day, you can refrigerate it for up to 2 days.

You can drink this liquid every day in the course of 4 weeks, as it is safe and very hydrating. After all, this is enough time to burn the excess fat.
How does it work and why is it so effective?
All of the ingredients listed above have various health benefits and cleansing effects, but when combined, they make a healthy bomb that both purifies the body and helps remove the overload of fat.
Now, let us have a look at the ingredients one at a time.
They are low in calories, act as a diuretic, are high in dietary fiber and help keep the body alkaline. They are perfect food for weight loss.
As a study done at the Institute for Human Nutrition at Columbia University showed, when participants drank a hot beverage with ginger, they felt fuller and had less chance of overeating.
Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps suppress food cravings. Lemon also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it. When lemon juice has been fully metabolized and its minerals have been dissociated in the bloodstream, its effect is alkalizing. This means that lemon raises the pH level of body tissue (pH value above 7 is alkaline).
You may not have thought of mint as an appetite suppressant, but it does control appetite. Not only will it give the water a refreshing flavor, but it will curb food cravings too.
You already know all the health benefits from drinking enough water. Water supports life, it hydrates the body, lubricates the joints and muscles during exercise, and if drank regularly, it reduces food cravings as well.
So, there you have it: A drink that is cheap, easy to make and supports quick fat loss. You can start drinking it for a few days and see the immediate results. The only thing you can lose is the excess fat.
