One of the easiest ways to lose weight consistently is to DRINK MORE WATER. Experts suggest that the average person should consume at least 64 ounces of water a day, but I recommend you drink up to double that amount for weight loss. But how do you drink that much water if you don’t like the taste of plain water? Many people have found drinking infused water for weight loss is the solution.
Water has many benefits relating to weight loss including: boosts your metabolism, fills you up, naturally helps your body release fat cells, flushes toxins from your system, and helps your muscles and organs perform more efficiently.
Because fruit infused waters are naturally low in calories and contain no artificial ingredients, you can drink as much of it as you want. Some fruit infused water recipes like Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water even contain metabolism boosting ingredients that naturally help accelerate weight loss.
Which fruit infused water is best for weight loss? The answer is: whichever one you will drink the most. The goal is to drink as much water as you can handle, more is better for weight loss.
