3 Slimming Detox Water Recipes
When you are trying to drink 64 ounces of water every day, it can get a little boring. Fortunately, infused water has come to my rescue and makes my guzzling of the stuff bearable, dare I say enjoyable!
I have been drinking these three slimming detox water combinations for the past few days and it has helped bring down that bulky, bloated feeling when starting a new workout. I don't know about you, but I always feel like I get so much bigger the first few weeks. My fitness guru, Becca, informed me that the reason for this is our muscles are building, which means it is pushing out the fat, and it takes time for that fat to shred. Our muscles are also being torn when doing a new workout, and water draws to them to heal, which causes some swelling and water retention. (I am learning so many new things!) Clearly all of this means the body needs to slim and detox as much as possible and these detox waters make me feel so much better!
3 Slimming Detox Water Recipes
Cucumber and Lime Detox Water
Slice half a lime and about eight slices of cucumber. Place in a small glass jar or water bottle and refrigerate for an hour or more. This one is my favorite for cooling down after a workout. The cucumbers are a soothing and refreshing taste, help with water retention, and have anti-inflammatory properties. The lime helps with digestion and is great for amping up your immune system.

Grapefruit and Strawberry Detox Water
Slice about one half of a grapefruit and five strawberries, and place in a 32 ounce glass container or bottle. Refrigerate for an hour or more. I like putting this one in a larger container because the grapefruit is larger and gives off a strong, somewhat bitter taste. Could that be called zesty? Not my favorite, but this one is the best for slimming down! Grapefruit is great for your immune system and can help boost your metabolism, which is why so many people call it the "fat-burning" super food. Strawberries contain anthocyanins, which can also prevent fat cells from enlarging and are also a great metabolism booster.

Lemon Orange and Mint Detox Water
Slice half a lemon, a couple slices of orange, and a handful of mint leaves and place in a large glass bottle or jar. Refrigerate for a few hours. This one if hands down my favorite. It is the perfect thing to drink all day long and has a subtle, pleasant taste to it. The lemons are great for cleansing out your digestive system, the orange and peel are a great immune system booster, and mint helps soothe your stomach.
