When you drink this juice, you increase the speed of your metabolism, making it easier for the body to burn fat. It’s not going to have direct impact on the fat content but it will assist the body to get into the state where you can slim down a little easier.

 

2 – Green Tea

Try to drink five cups of green tea every day for two weeks. The amount of water in the tea can boost your metabolism, which can also cause your heart rate to rise. When this happens, the body works harder to pump the blood and, in the end, causes your body to burn more calories.

 

3 – Warm Water with Lemon

You already know how beneficial water is. Athletes drink it every day to help them burn excess fat. Water, like green tea and the monster mix drink, can speed up your metabolism, enabling the body to burn calories faster.

It’s important to drink water between mealtimes to thwart any cravings you may have for additional food – usually junk food.  A big reason people gain weight is that they overeat. Drinking water can silence these urges and lead to a decrease in your stomach size.

Make sure you drink copious amounts of water – usually half your body weight in ounces. For instance, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink about 75 ounces of water a day. If you’re active or working in hot weather, you need to consume more. If you drink too much water though, it could actually harm you.

Each one of the foods drink listed help to positively affect the metabolism. After all, when you increase your metabolism rate, your body works harder to burn off the calories you consume and keep the weight off.
