Detox water is one of the newest trends in weight loss, but why?

Infused detox water is easy, DELICIOUS, super healthy and of course – can help you shed some of those unwanted pounds!

Let’s discuss what detox water actually is, and what its actually doing for your health.

First, it’s important to note that detox water is NOT a watered down green smoothie! Green smoothies are another great way to fill yourself with vital nutrients, and can also help encourage weight loss when used as a meal substitute. But green smoothies are still considered a meal as they usually contain enough protein, fats and overall calories to act as a healthy substitute.

Detox water is not filling, not calorie dense and is basically a smart way to combine your daily hydration with natural weight loss promoting supplements found in various fruits, extracts and spices.

Even better, most detox water recipes are so delicious they can easily be used as a healthy substitute for sweets that can satisfy even the strongest sweet tooth.

And since it’s just a low calorie, infused water, there is no limit to how much you can consume! No guilt for taking seconds!

They also help regulate hunger hormones and suppress your appetite. Watermelon contains L-citrulline/L-arginine, is high in fiber, low in calories and helps cleanse and flush your system with vitamins A, C, B-6, thiamine and lycopene. Lime works to cleanse toxins and mint stimulates digestion and encourages the breakdown of additional fat cells into energy.
