One of the best drinks you can enjoy daily for fat-burning benefits is green tea.
But you probably already knew that.
If you’re ready to move beyond teas, or are looking for other beverages to complement your green and black tea rituals that will support your weight loss goals, the good news is that there are plenty from which to choose.
This is the one fat-flushing drink doctors swear by to lose belly fat faster than sit ups. It revs up your metabolism, improves your digestive system, and is so simple to make.
Burning off belly fat is one of the more difficult tasks on most people’s weight loss journeys. Fat that accumulates in the belly is notoriously stubborn. It is also linked to inflammation and can be a sign of future health problems like cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes.
Getting rid of belly fat requires a multi-faceted approach — and sit ups alone aren’t going to cut it.
A combination of strength training, cardio, a cleaner diet with fewer processed foods and added sugar, and even more sleep can help.
And this fat-burning drink is an excellent supplement to an already healthy regimen.
Ground Flaxseed Water
Flax seeds are the tiny ingredient packed with huge nutritional benefits. Also known as linseed, flax is rich in fiber, which keeps your digestive system moving and helps level out blood sugar levels. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation, and a complex polymer called lignin that can help with weight loss.
You can add whole or ground flax to meals and ingredients like oatmeal, stews, and yogurt. But one of the easiest ways to reap its benefits is by making a simple glass or pitcher of ground flaxseed water.
Here are the steps to making this nutty flavored beverage.
1 tsp. freshly ground flax seed (you can grind the seeds in advance and refrigerate them)
1 lemon wedge
6 to 8 ounces hot water
From there you can simply: “Combine the ground flax seed with the hot water and stir well. Add the lemon wedge to your glass and give it a squeeze for some flavor and a boost of vitamin C. You can drink this once per day while you’re trying to lose weight.”
You can even make homemade flax seed milk as a healthy alternative to cow’s milk if you’re trying to ditch dairy or just want to benefit from flax’s nutrients.
To whip up a delish jug of flax milk that lasts three to five days, you’ll need:
Raw whole flax seeds
Pure vanilla extract
