Celebrities don’t just start their day with a plate of eggs, avocado, and turkey bacon. Many celebs, including these five super famous stars, rely on detox drinks to get a faster metabolism in the morning. And, the good news is that these drinks aren’t super fancy and won’t cost you a week’s pay to mix up in your own kitchen.
Here are the simple, body cleansing, metabolism-boosting (and sometimes strange) drinks five celebs swear by for better health.
Beyonce's Lemon And Cayenne Water
By now you've surely heard of Beyonce's effective Master Cleanse lemon water drink — judging by how much energy the mom of three had at Coachella, you can guarantee this drink is something special. But it's also brilliantly simple and requires just four ingredients: purified water, freshly squeezed lemon juice, dark maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. This is reportedly part of the master cleanse diet Bey followed to lose 20 pounds in 14 days (but be careful — she has docs and nutritionists watching her every move to make sure she stays healthy).
Jennifer Lawrence's Salt Water
This one's unconventional, but so is Jennifer Lawrence: the actress reportedly drank a concoction of water, lemon water, and coconut water with just a pinch of salt in it in order to lose weight.
Sports Dietitian Katherine Shone told MSN that adding salt is probably not necessary or helpful unless you're an athlete who loses a lot of sodium during workouts.
"Studies show that as a population we are all consuming excessive amounts of salt for what our body needs," Shone said. "If you're exercising for 30 to 60 minutes a day, as boring as it sounds, good old water is probably the best for most people."
Jillian Michaels' Dandelion Tea
Fitness pro and TV personality Jillian Michaels is a big fan of detox drinks that cleanse the system. And one of her favorites deviates from the usual lemon drinks you'll see: Dandelion tea. Her recommended 7 Day Detox Tea includes the tea, which improves digestion and increases urination so that your body naturally removes toxins.
Khloe Kardashian's Cucumber Water
Khloe Kardashian let the world in on her favorite morning detox drink: cucumber water. The new mom shared her preferred water recipe on Instagram, complaining about how she thinks plain water is plain "boring." She even gifted fans with the recipe, which includes filtered water, organic cucumbers, organic lemons, and organic mint leaves.
Miranda Kerr's Hot Lemon Water
In a video shot for Harper's Bazaar, model Miranda Kerr shared everything she eats in a day — and before a single avocado gets sliced, she starts that day with hot lemon water.
"It's a really great way to kind of kick-start your digestion," Kerr said. "It's full of vitamin C."
If you want to eat like Kerr, save some of those lemons: she adds a citrus splash to everything from salmon to a 10-ingredient salad filled with delish, healthy ingredients.
