Why It Works
Cucumbers are refreshing, full of fiber, low in calories (45 per cucumber), and high in water content – making it sexy stomach food. They also detoxify the body.
Both parsley and cilantro are full of antioxidants and have virtually no calories. They have several vital vitamins and minerals that lower water retention and reduce bloating and tummy discomfort.
Lemon flushes out all toxins accumulated in your body. This will cause fat to melt away faster once the impurities are out of the system.
Ginger helps to increase your metabolism and prevent constipation. Ginger helps to control appetite and will help to stop you from over eating. It can be used in lots of foods with similar results!
Aloe vera juice aids greatly to weight loss as its natural anti-oxidants help slow the growth of free radicals in the body. It also helps to any reduce inflammatory processes going on in the body. You can get some online here.
Green tea powder is the “secret ingredient” in this drink. It boosts the calories burned by your metabolism by 4x! The powder has 137x more antioxidants than typical brewed green tea. Traditional green tea is brewed from the dried out tea leaf whereas the powder is created from a live leaf, giving you all of it’s natural properties. It also has an Amino Acid called L-Theanine, which enhances all day energy, mental clarity and focus for up to 6 hours. You can get some online here.
