These 17 Detox Water Recipes will help you lose weight, boost your metabolism, flush your liver, and reach your daily water goals.
Water can be boring. If you find yourself consistently reaching for sodas or other sugary drinks, this is a great solution to healthily quench your thirst.
Most people are guilty of not getting enough water into their diet. Ourselves included.
This seems to happen for a few reasons:
- We drink other things that taste better.
- Water can be pretty boring.
The problem is that water intake is incredibly important to our health. It helps remove fat cells from the body, increases the body’s metabolism, and helps control cravings.
That’s why Lauren and I created these detox water recipes.
These waters are great for:
– Replacing high calorie snacks
– Getting you to drink more water in general
– Helping you through times of cravings
– Taking cute Instagram photos
– General detox
– Extra energy
– Using up that last bit of fruit in your fridge
– Putting a smile on your face 🙂
So go ahead and try them out…
