Here are the 10 best bedtime drinks for losing weight:
Lemon and Cucumber Juice
You probably know everything about the recent lemon water craze that took the world by storm in recent years. Lemon water is a very healthy drink that has numerous benefits for your health, including weight loss. Even studies have shown that people who drink 4 glasses of lemon juice per day reduce body fat much faster than the rest and what’s even better, they also manage to improve their lipid profile.
For best results, add some cucumbers, 1 orange, and 2 lemons in a pitcher of water, garnish the drink with fresh mint and consume before bedtime. You should notice and feel the improvements after only a few weeks.
Cucumber juice is a lightweight, yet nutritious drink that can trim your muffin top quickly and efficiently. Cucumbers are the perfect vegetable to hydrate your body and keep your health in check, and drinking a glass of cucumber juice before bed for a month will provide incredible results.
Pineapples are rich in fiber and other nutrients important for your digestion and are the perfect weight loss food. Even better, a glass of pineapple juice before bedtime will satisfy your hunger without adding further calories to your daily count. Drink a glass of fresh pineapple juice with a bit of lemon juice every night before going to bed and you should look much better in a short time.
Ginger is a powerful root with a variety of health benefits and powerful weight loss abilities. Ginger will significantly improve your digestion and according to studies, it has the power to fight obesity, which speaks volumes of its abilities. Now, the tea doesn’t exactly taste great, but you can fix that by adding a bit of fresh lemon juice inside. Drink this every night before going to bed and you’ll be slimmer in a manner of months.
Strawberry, Lemon, and Herbs
Strawberries and any kind of berries really are full of phytonutrients that can help you lose weight while also protecting your heart and shielding you from cancer. Plus, berries are freakin’ tasty!
Studies have shown that fresh strawberry juice can reduce inflammation in the body while also preventing blood sugar spikes and aiding in weight loss. Fill a glass with water and add a few slices of lemon (peels included), then add a handful of strawberries and a few herbs – we recommend mint. Add a few ice cubes, drink this tasty mix before going to bed, and you’ll get the results you’ve wanted in a pretty short time.
Cilantro and Cucumber Juice
On first thought, a cilantro-cucumber juice mix doesn’t sound very tasty. It really isn’t if we’re being honest, but if you take into consideration it’s powerful effects, it’s totally worth drinking. Besides helping you lose weight, this powerhouse mixture will also eliminate toxins from your body and clean it whole, significantly boosting your health.
For optimal results, mix a cup of cilantro, half a cucumber, some Aloe Vera gel, half a glass of water and grated ginger in a blender, then gulp down the mixture before going to bed. Believe us – it’ll be worth it.
You’ve probably heard all about green tea’s weight loss properties, but like most people, you didn’t believe it. Well, we’re here to clarify things – it’s true. Green tea does help you lose weight, albeit from a different angle.
What the tea does is lower your stress thanks to the caffeine content, helping you to sleep better. The better sleep leads to improved metabolism, leading to eventual weight loss. Of course, only if you pair it with diet and exercise.
Another one of nature’s wonders, dandelion tea can improve your digestion and metabolism while flushing out excess water from your body. Drink a cup before bedtime to feel lighter and lose weight over time.
ACV is a natural wonder that can help you with a variety of health problems including weight gain. It will regulate your digestion and metabolism and keep everything in the body in working order, fine-tuning your system to perfection. Drink a bit of ACV in a glass of water with a few apple slices every night before going to bed and you’ll feel lighter and slimmer in a few months.
Grapefruit Juice and Cinnamon
Grapefruit is a hydrating and filling fruit full of nutrients that will keep your metabolism up and running. Instead of buying grapefruit juice which will surely come with added sugar, you can juice it yourself in a blender – add a pinch of cinnamon to the drink and consume before bedtime for a flatter muffin top in just a couple of months.
