Top 14 Best Detox Waters for Weight Loss

Water is one of the best things you can take if you are trying to shed a few extra pounds. People often confuse hunger for thirst, leaving many to snack on excess calories when drinking a glass of water would curb the pang in their stomach.

Many find the taste of water unappealing, and would rather the taste of a candy bar over ‘boring’ water, which is why infused water is such a powerful tool in the battle of the bulge. Water also can help ensure your metabolism is running at an optimal level as it acts as the lubricant that makes all your organs work cohesively.

Water infusion is by no means a new concept. Pre-historic man probably used shells to hold water, and the flesh of the shell (such as the coconut) would most likely flavor the water. Therapeutic spas are known for their ‘fancy’ flavored water, which is often a combination of cucumber and lemon, placed in a jug, which gives a cooling, refreshing taste to the humble h20.

Water infusions are reported to improve energy, increases mental alertness, improves headaches and brightens skin.

Water and Detoxing

You need a lot of water when you’re not detoxing. When you are doing a water detox, you need even more. Removing toxins from your body takes even more water still.

While you are following a detox, you should set your goal to drink half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day.

Detox drinks for weight loss are a powerful tool to kick start your fat lossand achieve a successful detox.

The Best Detox Water Ingredients

What kind of ingredients are best for making the best detox waters possible?

  • Ripe, juicy fruit and vegetables are the best as they already are primed to leech out their goodness.
  • To begin it’s best to limit your fruit water to one or two good quality ingredients, as too many flavors can confuse the palate.
  • Citrus fruits such as lemons, limes and oranges are a staple ingredient in water infusion as they have a high juicy content already, which mixes nicely into your water.
  • You don’t need lots of fancy ingredients to make a tasty water infusion. Some of the best infusions only use one ingredient.
  • The quality of your ingredients is important with all water detoxes, the local farmers market is a great source of fresh produce, and you can even buy large quantities of quality, fresh produce and freeze it, ready for an infusion at a moments notice.
