What you drink is almost as important as what you eat. Make sure not to drink all your calories. When you choose what you want to drink as you are working on losing weight, you should also be thinking about what could burn the most fat. This is when you are going to go from occasional weight loss to continued weight loss. Here are some fat burning drinks to try out.
If you choose just one drink aside from water, it should be green tea. This is so good for you, can easily be flavored with honey or skim milk, and provides a lot of energy. Green tea also has tons of other health benefits, like improving your skin, increasing your metabolism, and helping to clean out your system. Green tea also happens to contain a lot of antioxidants, and most varieties are caffeine-free. Try to have at least one cup of green tea, but feel free to enjoy as many cups as you like.
You probably already know how important water is, but think about certain versions of water that can aid you in your fat burning efforts. Infused water has fruit and veggies in it, many of which are also going to help to burn more fat and help you lose weight. Plus, when you drink ice cold water, that can help to give you energy and speed up your metabolism. Start drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water a day, preferably ice cold water and try to make some of them infused water.
Another great beverage to have when you want to burn more fat is vegetable juice. This should not be something you get in a bottle or can, but vegetable juice you make for yourself at home. Get a juicer and juice veggies like celery, carrots, kale, spinach, and many others. Drink your vegetable juice cold and before a meal to burn more calories and fat even while eating the meal.
Are you ready to Juice up your life? Of course you are, because you are ready for a slimmer you, reduced belly bloat, endless energy, and a radiant glow.

How often do you eat the rainbow? How many cups of vegetables do you eat a day? I am talking about raw vegetables loaded with live enzymes, nutrients, and vitamins. Think. Is it 2 cups or 5 cups or 20 cups? It is hard to eat 20 cups of raw vegetables, but you can juice the rainbow and consume tons of vegetables, giving your body exactly what it needs, Delicious, healthful food does not need to comprise tons of ingredients. Why not just eat a “healthier” version of your favorite foods? For more recipes and guidance on how to live your life naturally, visit me at www.bluebarnkitchen.com
