White tea

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, so you really can’t drink too much of it. This tea can also be helpful in significantly reducing your appetite, which is a welcome boon to people who are trying to lose weight. Green tea makes you feel fuller without that sense of deprivation that normally accompanies dieting. An infusion of green tea can reduce stress by helping you to maintain a calm and relaxed sense of wellbeing.

Ginger tea

This fat-burning beverage can naturally and effectively eliminate accumulations of body fat – and it also reduces nausea and improves digestion. Additionally, it’s hugely beneficial for preventing respiratory diseases.

Almond milk

Milk from almonds

Milk made from almonds is not only more nutrient-dense than ordinary dairy milk, but it also is lower in calories and fat. It will help you feel satisfied without weighing you down, so you’ll consume fewer calories. It’s rich in vitamins D and E, plus it contains bone-building calcium. We recommend drinking a 250ml glass of plain almond milk each day.

Kiwi, spinach and lettuce juice

Whizz up this beauty in your blender. Just add half a kiwi to three spinach leaves and three lettuce leaves and you’ll end up with this delicious juice that is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and chlorophyll. 

It’s also a great cleanser and purifier for the body. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add a bit of agave nectar or maple syrup to it. This will boost its flavour and its nutritional properties.

Artichoke water

How do you get water from an artichoke? Well, you cook an artichoke in a litre of water. Drink the resulting beverage throughout the day and you will eliminate fat and toxins from your liver. For best results, we do recommend drinking this water for twenty consecutive days.

Grapefruit juice

For burning fat, you’d be hard-pressed to beat grapefruit juice. Just one daily glass of this juice will put you well on your way to achieving your weight loss goals – and you’ll do it in record time. What’s more, grapefruit juice is clinically proven to lower blood sugar, so it’s safer for diabetics.

Papaya juice

If you want to slim in a naturally healthy way, papaya is your superhero. It contains papain, an enzyme that prevents fat from accumulating in the body. Enjoy plenty of this juice throughout the day, but ensure that it’s prepared only with water.

Hibiscus water

The diuretic properties of hibiscus water make it a valuable asset to any weight loss plan. To benefit from its goodness, prepare it by cooking a few flowers in a litre of water. Drink the infusion throughout the day as you wish.
