Here are three morning drinks that can help you lose weight.
- Apple cider vinegar (ACV) – It is often suggested that you start your day with apple cider vinegar for smooth digestion throughout the day. Several studies show that ACV can increase satiety, help you eat less, and lead to actual pounds lost on the scale. Add one to two tablespoons of ACV to one glass of water and drink it on an empty stomach before you eat. (Related: 10 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism Naturally.)
- Green tea – Green tea, one of the healthiest drinks on the planet, stimulates metabolism for weight loss and does not add calories. This makes green tea a reliable option for weight watchers. Green tea extract is full of antioxidants and many plant compounds that are good for your health. Green tea extracts contain catechins, which appear to be the secret to the tea’s fat-burning, metabolism-boosting effects. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a kind of catechin, is a substance that can boost metabolism.
- Honey and lemon water – To make this drink, take a glass of lukewarm water, add a teaspoon of organic, unprocessed honey and stir well to dissolve. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the honey water, then stir the mixture again before drinking. Take this remedy as a morning drink once in the morning on an empty stomach.
How can honey and lemon water help you lose weight?
The scientific benefits of honey are linked to the raw, unfiltered type, so always check product labels. High-quality, unfiltered honey contains more beneficial compounds and nutrients than processed, filtered honey.
Some studies have confirmed that drinking more water can help boost your metabolism and make you feel fuller, which can both help you shed pounds. Additionally, hydrating with honey and lemon water can help you maintain a healthy weight. According to a study, which involved about 10,000 participants, people who weren’t properly hydrated had a higher chance of being overweight or obese compared to participants who were properly hydrated.
Drinking honey and lemon water can help you feel full before meals, which can result in a reduction in overall calorie intake. Instead of drinking sugary sodas full of calories, choose honey and lemon water to limit your calorie and sugar intake. For example, a 12-ounce (253-gram) can of soda has 110 calories and about 30 grams of sugar. Meanwhile, a 12-ounce serving of honey and lemon water (with a teaspoon of honey) only has at least 25 calories and six grams of sugar.
If you make some honey and lemon water that has less sugar than other sweetened beverages, it can help you consume fewer calories and lose more weight. Take note that this also depends on how much honey you add to the lemon drink.
