However, there are a few tried, true, and much simpler methods to aid in your resolution for a healthier lifestyle.This post is here to help you understand the benefits of making healthier beverage choices and, by doing so, help you achieve the weight loss you’ve been looking for.

You’re most likely thinking that this solution is too easy. I can assure you it’s not. Water is the easiest way to make a difference and begin your journey.

Benefits

The most significant benefit of drinking enough water is to decrease the feeling of sluggishness and muscle ache. This is also a great benefit if you are going to include exercise in your new healthy lifestyle. Water will keep you hydrated and ache-free.

Before Meals

Drinking a glass of water before meals can be a great weight loss advantage. Water is a filler, so one glass before you start lunch or dinner will help you feel full and will decrease likelihood of overeating.

Replace Sugary and Calorie-Filled Drinks

Replacing drinks such as soda or other high-calorie, high-sugar beverages with water is an easy way to cut out extra fat that your body is storing. Cutting out such drinks can be hard, but replacing them with water will make all the difference for your improved healthy life.

If you find yourself missing the fizzy feeling of soda, try a sparkling water! You can find these in plain or flavored.

Pro Tip

Drink water with ice, as you will use more energy to warm the water to normal body temperature. This will help to speed up your metabolism, therefore burning more calories.

Add Fruit

If drinking plain water all day every day sounds too boring and mundane for you, don’t be afraid to add fruit for flavor, especially lemon. And here’s why.

Lemon

Adding lemon to water is a great way to replace the sugary substances we find it so readily available. Lemon will only add flavor and no unnecessary sugar or fat calories.

Lemon also helps with bloating, expelling the extra toxins hanging around. This is a great way to keep your digestive system clear and your body from storing the extra fat it’s not using.

Now Add Ginger

When lemon is paired with ginger, your body will be thanking you for the benefits. Some of which will include the following:

Digestion Stimulation

Lemon and ginger work together to fight slow intestinal movement as well as indigestion. This can be a great way to keep the food you consume from sticking around.

Like lemon, ginger also helps decrease bloating, which is another reason that tag-teaming these two is great for weight loss.

Fighting off Colds

Not only will lemon and ginger help you lose weight, they will also work to keep your immune system happy and healthy. Many of the components that make up lemon and ginger work to strengthen our immune systems, which, in turn, helps the weight loss process. A strong body will shed weight healthier than a sick one.

Healthy Skin

An added perk of lemon and ginger water is that it’s great for your skin. Packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, lemon and ginger will keep skin moisturized, healthy, and looking young.

How to Prepare It

The most effective way to prepare this concoction is to boil water as if you were making tea. Once boiled, remove water from heat and add a small slice of ginger, letting it steep covered for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add the juice of 1 lemon and enjoy.

The best time of day to enjoy this drink is before breakfast.You can also make ginger lemonade. This is easy enough. Prepare freshly-squeezed lemonade free of refined sugar and then stir in 1 tsp. of grated ginger.

Combining lemon, ginger, and water is one of the easiest ways to boost metabolism, clean out your digest system, and aid in weight loss. But, what are a few other small changes you can make to help?

A Cup of Joe

Cutting out all the extras from your coffee until it’s stripped down to its natural black state can aid in weight loss. Black coffee only contains 2 calories per serving and is free of any fat.

Drinking coffee without added flavorings can help boost your metabolism and also give you a sense of being full, so you won’t want to do that extra snacking in between meals.

Green Tea

Taking up the habit of green tea has many of the same benefits as drinking a plain cup of coffee. This drink will keep you caffeinated and cleansed without making you feel bloated. Add a splash of honey for a little extra flavor.

Skim Milk

If you’re a milk drinker and don’t already drink skim milk, switching can make a huge difference. Although the fat found in milk is healthy, often times it can still be more than we need. Switching to skim is a great way to cut out that extra fat and prevent it from storing in those problem areas on your body.

Vegetable Juice

Store-bought vegetable juice will suit fine, but if you want a drink without any additives then squeezing your own at home would be the healthiest option.

This drink is a great substitute for a sweet or salty snack. The calories will keep you full and focused throughout your day and the antioxidants and other nutrients will keep your digest system clean and running at optimum healthy.
