Edited by Donna, Eng, VC, Maria Quinney
Method 1: With An Apple, Flax and Chia Seed Cleanse
This drink is made with three very high fiber foods, apples, flax seeds and ground chia seeds, all of which are very high in both insoluble and soluble fiber. You could easily lose a pound to two pounds a week on this high fiber weight loss regimen, which cleanses your entire system.
Flax seeds are a great source of insoluble fiber, that helps push toxins and fecal matter out of the intestines. Apple contains pectin, which becomes a gel that leaches away toxins and bacteria from intestinal walls. Chia, when left to soak in any fluid for a minimum of five minute, swells and becomes a gel-like substance that also helps move waste through the digestive system and absorb toxins.
Flax seeds are also a great source of essential fatty acids, which are very healing for the gut and chia seeds are a rare vegan source of a whole protein with a full amino acid profile. The apple, although a bit short on protein, is almost a whole food, and contains vitamins and minerals that a person needs to stay healthy all day. For many people, consuming these high fiber foods also helps reduce abdominal bloat and gas and the end result is often a much flatter tummy. The thick, fibrous and nutritious drink that is concocted with these ingredients also helps reduce cravings and keeps you feeling full so that you consume fewer calories, in general, all day.
- 1Check with your doctor first to see if eating a lot of fiber every day is suitable weight loss choice for you. This is because eating a great deal of fiber every day can slow the arrival of medications into the bloodstream and possibly cause symptoms. The small seeds in flax and chia sees also irritate the bowels of people with histamine disorders, hemorrhoids or IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome.)Advertisement
- 2In a blender, combine:Advertisement
- One chopped up apple
- One tablespoon of ground flaxseeds
- One tablespoon of honey
- One cup water.
Make sure you use a Spring water or vapor distilled water and use organic ingredients if possible. The touch of honey in this recipe adds a bit of flavor to apple and seed mixture. Some people, who do not normally add any type of sweetener to a drink, may find that the apple makes the drink sweet enough for them and that the addition of honey is not necessary.
- 1Blend the apple, flax seed and honey mixture into a thick drink. It is okay if it is a bit thick and like wall paper paste in texture. If you like you can add a bit more water or even ice, to make it more drinkable if you cannot handle the texture. However keep in mind that it is this glue like texture that is going to help pull waste and mucus out of your body.
- 3Repeat the regimen of drinking this mixture in the morning and evening every day. If you experience gas, abdominal discomfort or dehydration, then skip using it for a couple of days. For most people this type of discomfort is temporary, however flax and chia seeds are not gluten-free and some people may suffer unpleasant symptoms because of that.
Method 2: With a Banana Cinnamon Drink Before Bed
This drink combines water with mashed banana and cinnamon to make a bedtime smoothie that helps you lose weight because the bananas are so full of fiber. Furthermore, bananas contain lots of magnesium and potassium, which helps you feel relaxed and fall asleep. The tryptophan in bananas help put you in a good mood and regulate the serotonin levels that help you deal with anxiety. This is the same amino acid present in turkey meat and hot milk, that helps you feel sleepy.
- 1The cinnamon in this recipe contains the essential oil eugenol, which helps cut your appetite and reduce cravings. Cinnamon is a fat-burning spice that stimulates your circulation and digestion so that your entire metabolism is working more efficiently.Advertisement
- Boil two cups of water in a small pot. Once it has boiled, turn the heat down to low to prepare the pot for making a brew from a peeled banana and cinnamon.
- Add the flesh of one peeled banana and one teaspoon full of cinnamon to the pot and let the mixture sit for about ten minutes. It is not necessary to cut up the banana, unless it is necessary to cut it so that the water in the pot covers it all because you are essentially steeping the fruit in the water to make a tea. It is also best to use organic bananas to make this, if they are available.
- 2Use a colander to strain the banana and cinnamon juice from out of the cup and pour the fluid into a jar or pitcher with a lid. Do not use a plastic jug as the warm banana and cinnamon brew might cause chemicals from the plastic container to leach into your drink. It is best to use glass pitchers or containers whenever possible.
- 4You can drink this weight loss drink that works overnight every single day. If you develop diarrhea or cramps, skip taking the drink for a few nights before resuming the regimen.
Method 3: By Eating Two Tablespoons of Coconut Oil A Day
One of fastest ways to drop the pounds and get rid of abdominal weight is to simply eat two tablespoons of coconut oil a day. Coconut oil is a thermogenic substance, which means that it helps you burn calories quickly. It is also an anti-inflammatory substance that kills the yeast, bacteria and fungus that can cause mucus to build up in the intestines. Coconut oil can also help you address the gas and water retention issues that are responsible for a bloated abdomen.
Coconut oil also assists with the regulation of insulin and blood sugar levels, reduces the risk of heart disease and boost your thyroid function. It also helps the liver convert inactive thyroid hormone to its active form so you can lose weight quickly. If you are on a low-calorie diet, eating two tablespoons of coconut oil a day can help prevent the hair loss that sometimes comes as the result of being deprived of fats while you are on a low-calorie diet.
Eating two tablespoons of coconut oil every day can help you lose up to one pound to two pounds a week. Many people see a reduction in abdominal bloat and a shrinking waistline eating just two tablespoons of it a day.
Here are ways to consume two tablespoons of coconut oil a day. Keep in mind that the oil must not be cooked, or it may lose some of the long chain essential fatty acids and vitamins that are so essential for your good health.
- 1Simply eat two tablespoons of coconut oil straight from the spoon. You can eat two tablespoons at once or one tablespoon earlier in the morning and another one later in the day. It also does not matter if it is eaten in solid form or liquid form as long as you avoid eating it in cooked form. The warmer the coconut oil is, the more liquid in texture it will be. If you prefer using solid coconut oil, simply stick in the refrigerator for half and hour and it will firm up from a liquid to a solid.
Coconut oil contains long-chain acids that make it very healthy, so you can eat two tablespoonful's or more of it for as long as you want with no ill effects.
Method 4: By Drinking Hot Water
One of the simplest ways to lose weight is Ayurvedic in origin and simply involves drinking a glass of hot water when you get up in the morning and then more full glasses of hot water after each meal. The water should be pure and vapor distilled and it should not be heated up in the microwave. Water is a natural detoxifier and when it is warmed it has the effect of relaxing the entire digestive system so that it elimination is easier and occurs without cramps or pain. Drinking hot water also gives all of your digestive organs a bit of a rinse and improves circulation.
Note that drinking cold water does not have the same effect because it actually gels food in the intestines, but hot water actually dissolves fat. The warm water also increases your metabolism, stimulates all over your body organs into a state where they must eliminate everything. You ultimately are carrying a lighter load, which encourages your body to lose weight faster.
- 1Bring eight to twelve ounces of vapor distilled water to a near boil and then let it cool. There is no need to boil the water as it will just take longer to cool off before you can drink it. Do not use the microwave to warm the water, as that is a less healthy practice. Heat up the water on the stove each time you plan to drink a cup or bring it to a near boil in a kettle.
- 3Drink one glass of lukewarm water after each snack or meal that you eat during the rest of the day. This will help facilitate digestion. Do not drink the water before big meals as this will dilute your natural digestive juices and cause undigested food to rest in the colon. Drinking the water after a meal also helps dissolve any congestion that may be a consequence of poor digestion.
Method 5: By Eating Banana and Egg Pancakes For Breakfast
If you replace every breakfast that you eat with this banana and egg pancake meal then you will lose two pounds a week. That is because you are replacing a meal that is normally 400 to 900 calories with one that is only 200 calories. Eggs are very high in protein, essential fatty acids and biotin, which helps your body build muscle instead of fat. Consuming foods that are high in protein first thing in the morning can also help you feel full for most of the day.
The bananas in these high protein pancakes are also an excellent source of protein, as well as magnesium, potassium, copper and manganese. These essential minerals can help you stay in an upbeat mood while dieting. Bananas also make your feel full so that you do not binge eat later and they also contain enough chromium, that just eating a single banana can help regulate your blood sugar problem. If your weight gain has caused high blood pressure, the bananas in this recipe can help you deal with that as well. Bananas are a generous source of potassium which helps regulate high blood pressure and remove cholesterol from the blood.
Cinnamon is a fat-burning spice because it stimulates your circulation and increases cell respiration, thus helping your metabolism to work more efficiently throughout the day. The cinnamon in these home-made diet pancakes also efficiently lowers blood sugar, helping those who are packing on the pounds because of insulin resistance or Type II Diabetes to lose the weight faster.
- 1Here is the recipe for making simple high protein banana and egg pancakes:
- In a small bowl place two eggs, a half a cup of finely mashed bananas and teaspoon of cinnamon and mix them well with a hand blender to make a smooth glossy pancake batter. Make sure that you are using real cinnamon and not cassia, often sold as cinnamon, by reading the label on the spice bottle. Cassia does have similar essential oils as cinnamon but they are not as effective for weight loss as real cinnamon.
- Pour one quarter of the batter into a non-stick frying pan and let cook until bubbling (about two minutes) and then flip it over to cook the other side. This recipe will make four to five banana weight-loss pancakes.
- 2You could eat these high-protein pancakes for breakfast every day for as long as you like. You do not have to eat them with butter or syrup, which would add hundreds of calorie to the meal, because they are rich enough. If you crave another protein to go with them then a tablespoon of low-fat cottage cheese and a handful of fruit is a good choice. Drizzling these diet pancakes with a sugar-free fruit puree is also a sweet idea. Each pancake is only about 60 calories, which means that eating six of them is only 300 calories. However, do not eat these pancakes every morning for breakfast if your doctor has recommended that you stay away from eggs because of an allergy or because you have high cholesterol.
Method 6: With A Chia Seed and Oat Breakfast Drink
This powerful breakfast drink contains two ingredients that are lower cholesterol levels and that have amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Both chia seeds and oats swell up when added to water, to create an excellent source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber acts like a gelatinous mass that pushes fecal matter and toxins out of your intestines. Both grains are an excellent source of amino acids and B vitamins, which help to regulate your metabolism. Both chia and oats also contain minerals, such as potassium, zinc, copper, iodine, magnesium biotin and phosphorus. These minerals help support the function of the thyroid, which is key in the regulation of blood sugar and metabolism because it helps determine whether or not the carbs that you eat will be turned into fuel or fat.. The cinnamon in this mixture helps speed up the metabolism so that you burn off calories more efficiently.
Note that eating a lot of high fiber every day can slow down the absorption of vitamin and herbal supplements as well as the absorption of certain medications. You may still be able to eat this high fiber fat-loss breakfast if you do not take medication at the same time. If you are on medication or have a bowel disease like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), your medical professional may recommend that you take a different route to losing weight fast.
- 1In a small pot mix together:
- 1 cup of steel cut organic oats
- 4 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- 1 tablespoon of pure organic vanilla
- Dash of iodized sea salt.
- 5Pour the custard-like mixture into a bowl and eat it for breakfast. If you like you can add a splash of coconut or nut milk to the mixture or a handful of healthy fruit such as berries, banana slices, peach slices or apple slices. If you want to add an essential fatty acid source, for brain health, you can add a teaspoon of crushed almonds.
- 6You can eat this easy weight-loss breakfast pudding every day. If you become constipated or have cramps as the result of eating so much fiber, you can stop for a couple of days and then return to the diet if necessary. However, usually chia seeds and oats stimulate the muscles in the intestine to move its contents through it at a swifter rate. This in turn results in fast weight loss.
Method 7: With Cloves and Linseeds
This recipe for a do-it-yourself quick weight loss powder is made from ground up whole cloves and whole linseeds. This powder works as a weight loss solution because both of fresh cloves and linseeds help dispel mucus deposits and parasites in the colon.
Parasites are an issue when it comes to weight loss because they consume the nutrients that you should be in taking and expel toxins that cause bloating and weight gain. As you are constantly feeding these intestinal organisms instead of yourself, you might find yourself feeling constantly hungry. Mucus building up in your colon prevents weight loss because it creates an environment that is physically favorable for the build up of bacteria, fungi and parasites and it also acts as a sticky veil tot prevent your body from absorbing nutrients. This also causes cravings and the malabsorption of nutrients. Cloves help kill these parasites and yeasts, which are starving you to death nutritionally and causing you to overeat.
- 1Grind five level tablespoons of linseeds with ½ tablespoon of whole cloves in a coffee grinder. You can also buy ground linseeds or ground cloves, but the mixture will be more effective if you grind up the seeds yourself. The linseeds contain healing fatty acids that are released as you grind them and the cloves contain a potent parasite-killing essential oil that is released as they are crushed. You can buy both cloves and linseeds at health food stores and some grocery stores. Spice stores also sometimes carry both whole flax seeds and fresh cloves.
- 2Take two tablespoons of the clove and linseed powder every morning for three days with a big glass of water. You can also sprinkle the mixture on granola, breakfast cereal or porridge. This might be an easier way for some individuals to handle the sharp taste of the ground cloves, but remember to always drink lots of water with this powder in any case.
- 5Continue taking the powder for three days and then taking a break for another three for a total of 30 days. Pacing yourself while taking this homemade weight loss powder, helps you lose weight and bloat without going through unpleasant side effects such as cramping, bloating or extreme fatigue. If you do suffer cramps while you are consuming this powder, it is likely because you have a sensitivity to cinnamon oil or the gluten in the grains.
Method 8: By Drinking Coconut Oil And Coffee
Black coffee is allowed on most diets because it is a very effective diuretic that flushes fluid from your kidneys. It is the caffeine in coffee that speeds up the metabolism and helps you lose weight. The caffeine also elevates your mood, cuts appetite and in some people, it also cuts all cravings for other foods.
Coconut oil is well known for reducing belly fat, populating the gut with good bacteria and supplying the endocrine system glands with the essential fatty acids that they need to successfully lose weight. When coconut oil and coffee are mixed together, a super weight loss potion is created. The cinnamon that is also in this weight loss recipe stimulates your circulation and the suggested honey is a source of quick energy that also naturally sweetens your coffee beverage.
Here are the steps to mixing your coffee with coconut oil.
- 3Stir a teaspoon or two of the coconut oil, cinnamon and honey mixture into your coffee and drink it as you normally would. If you like a whiter coffee with a creamier taste you can add a splash of almond milk or coconut milk. However be aware that the more nut milk or coconut oil that you add, the more calories you are adding to your weight-loss brew.
- 4You can drink this mixture every day, many times a day, to help facilitate your weight loss. More than three cups of coffee a day is not recommended as that can cause unpleasant side effects such as a rapid heartbeat, sweating and nervousness. It is also best not to consume this weight loss drink just before bed as it makes you feel so energetic and could cause restlessness and insomnia.
Method 9: With A Plum Breakfast Pudding
This breakfast pudding is similar to a weight loss smoothie, except that all of the fresh ingredients are blended into a pudding and put into a breakfast bowl. This particular weight loss smoothie in a bowl provokes fast weight loss because it helps you start off your day with a breakfast that will have a powerful cleansing impact on your intestines and a diuretic flushing effect on your kidneys and liver. The ground flaxseed is a potent source of essential fatty acids and it also helps to sweep debris out of your colon. It also contains oatmeal, another source of insoluble fiber, that gels in the intestine and helps absorb toxins, mucus and fucoid plaque from the intestinal walls. Clean intestinal walls absorb nutrients more efficiently, thus allowing you to lose weight more efficiently. As you are well nourished, you will have less cravings for additional food or junk food.
The deconstructed smoothie also contains 1 cup of organic kefir, which is a yogurt-like fermented product repopulates the intestines with good bacteria and improves a person's immunity. The plums in the recipe are potent natural cleansers that stimulate peristalsis in the intestines and trigger elimination. The bananas in the recipe supply the dieter with potassium, reducing stress and high blood pressure and the cocoa supplies anti-oxidants and theobromine, which helps keep you in a good mood while dieting.
This deconstructed smoothie is meant to have every day at breakfast. Here are the steps for creating it and using it to lose weight.
- 4Add the plum pieces and half of a ripe banana to the bowl that contains the dry ingredients and use a hand blender to whirl it all together into a creamy mixture. You can also mix it all together in a blender, but the mixture is so thick it is likely easier to clean the hand blender then it is to clean the sides of the blender and blender blades. That is because this is a very sticky pudding.
- 5Eat one cup of this mixture every day for a week. One batch can last three days or more in the refrigerator. Some individuals can make the initial batch last all week and others need to make two batches of this deconstructed smoothie a week. You can extra protein to the mixture by adding almonds or sesame seeds.
- 6Give yourself a break of a week before eating this high fiber breakfast a second week. This will give your system a break from the detox. Be aware too that eating a lot of plums like this can also cause gas and cramps in some people. You can also expect to feel a bit too full, which also helps you lose weight because it stops you from wanting to eat a big meal later.
Method 10: With A Distilled Water Fat Flush
Also sometimes called Fat Flush Water or Belly Bloat Buster water, this drink, which is infused with fresh produce and herbs, helps your body stay hydrated and expel excess liquid and waste material from your kidneys, bladder and intestines. Distilled water is very pure and does not contain the sodium, that some Spring waters contain, thus preventing high blood pressure, bloating and the elevation of insulin levels.
Yet another way that drinking a distilled water fat flush can help you lose weight, is by virtue of the fact that if you are drinking water all day, you are not drinking sugar and calorie-laden colas or diet drinks with poisonous artificial sweeteners such as Sucralose or Aspartame.
The tangerine and grapefruit in the water help to speed up the metabolism and improve insulin resistance, while the cucumbers in the water act as a diuretic to help flush out fat. The fresh mint leaves in this recipe is also a potent diuretic that helps your body eliminate excess water as it rinses fat and toxins from your cells. The mint also prevents any digestive upset that might occur as the result of the high amounts of Vitamin C in this weight-loss water recipe. Vitamin C helps heal the liver and the thyroid healthy, which is ideal as both organs are also involved with the elimination of fat and the regulation of metabolic processes.
Note that if you are on certain medications, that consuming grapefruit can interfere with them, so be sure to check with your doctor before eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit infused water. If you are not allowed grapefruit, you can substitute lemon or lime or blood oranges for the grapefruit in this recipe.
- 2Wash a grapefruit well and slice it thinly, leaving the peel on.You can use any type of grapefruit that you like in this recipe, pink, yellow or red. If the grapefruit is very large, you may only want to use half of it, depending on your individual taste. The grapefruit peel is a bit bitter, but it adds a lot of flavor to your infused Fat Flush water.
- 7Drink this water all day until the pitcher is empty. This will add up to being between eight to ten cups of water a day. You can also refill the pitcher with ice and more distilled water to make a second fat flushing infusion. The more water that you drink, the more effective this water will be as a weight loss solution.You can also add different fruits to your water to augment it and give it a different flavor.
- 8You can drink this water every day if you like and experience a weight loss of one to two pounds of week. You can also view this weight loss recipe as more flavorful way to get the recommended eight glasses of water a day or more that you need to stay healthy.
Method 11: With A Grapefruit, Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar Flush
This potent drink helps you lose weight by detoxifying the liver, kidneys and colon and by making the blood more alkaline. This helps your metabolism work at its peak performance to turn carbs into energy instead of fat. Both apple cider and grapefruit juice are potent diuretics that help reduce belly bloat and leach water from your tissues, assisting with the process of detoxification. The high Vitamin C and A levels in the fruit helps enhance brain function and makes you feel more energetic. The honey in the mixture is to sweeten it a bit and also provide you with a bit of extra energy in the form of calories so that you can stick to your diet as you get through the day. This is a weight loss elixir that is recommended for people who are trying to stick to a diet, while working out hard as well.
Note that if you do not have grapefruit on hand, that you can use oranges instead.
ourages rapid weight l
- 1You can repeat this ten day schedule of drinking the flush every day, after giving yourself a ten day break from it . This is to give your digestive system a rest from the extreme detoxification that can be triggered by drinking this grapefruit and apple cider vinegar mixture.
Method 12: With Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar
Commercial apple cider vinegar is widely available, but the most potent apple cider vinegar is the one that you make yourself at home. Apple cider vinegar activates your metabolism and also lowers blood sugar levels, thus greatly assisting individuals that have metabolic syndrome or Type II diabetes to lose weight. Homemade apple cider vinegar is especially effective at slowing down the digestion of starches and helping to convert calories into fuel instead of fat.
- 5After the two week time period is up, open the jar and strain its contents into another jar,. Make sure you remove all of the bits of apple in the jar by using the cheese cloth. You can then pour the contents of the jar into smaller jars or bottles. The vinegar will taste sour and be ready to use.
Method 13: With Kefir and Flaxseed
Eating a kefir and flaxseed mixture every day for three weeks can cause fast, massive weight loss and help skim inches off of your waistline. Cleansing the colon helps you lose weight because it can actually clear away more than ten pounds of debris from digestive system. Once the colon is cleansed, you are able to lose more weight because mucus, fecal plaque, fungus, bacteria and yeast are all removed and your intestinal walls are better able to absorb nutrients from food. This do-it-yourself weight loss ritual can also help you deal with diabetes, metabolic imbalances, liver and kidney disease and cancer.
Ground flaxseed is the main ingredient in this cleanse that functions to scrub your colon clean of waste deposits. The kefir, a kind of carbonated yogurt, is rich in probiotics and helps populate your intestines with "good bacteria." This improves your metabolic functions in general.
- 1Check with your doctor to see if a powerful cleanse like this will work to help you lose weight. High fiber cleanses like this one are not for everybody, especially with people with sensitive guts or IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). This type of weight loss cleanse can also block certain medications and prevent them from reaching the bloodstream, which can adversely affect your health.
- 2Mix together one quarter of a cup of plain kefir with one heaping tablespoon of ground flaxseed in a small bowl and eat it every morning for one week. If you cannot find ground flaxseed at the store, you can make it yourself by grinding whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder. Kefir is sold in most health food and grocery stores but be sure to buy plain Kefir that is not flavored with fruit because these versions can contain as much as 40 grams of sugar, which would defeat the purpose of you being on a diet in the first place. Make sure as well that you never prepare it in advance and that you always make it fresh every morning.
- 3The second week increase the amount of flaxseed that you are adding to the kefir to two teaspoons. By this point your guts should have adjusted to eating flax seed, but if you experience excessive flatulence or cramping you can reduce the dose of flaxseed back to one tablespoon or only add an extra half of a tablespoon until your body adjusts to eating all of this extra fiber.
- 4On the third week of this flax seed and kefir weight loss cleanse you should add 3 tablespoons of flaxseed. Only do this for another seven days and then give your body a break from this type of treatment for at least thirty days before attempting it again. However, many people will not find it necessary to repeat three weeks of this daily ritual as they may have lost a great deal of weight from the first round of daily supplementation with the kefir and flax seed mixture.
- 5Be sure to drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a day while you are on this type of cleanse. The process of detoxification in this way can be very dehydrating.
Method 14: With A Lemon, Ginger and Mint Flush
This drink is a strong diuretic that helps get rid of the bloat and overly full feeling that is experience by most overweight people. The lemon in this recipe is a great source of Vitamin C, which helps cells repair and renew themselves fast. The fresh, raw ginger in this recipe stimulates your circulation and allows your body to recycle fat and toxins out of your cells quickly. The cucumber in the recipe is an anti-inflammatory that helps tighten swollen digestive organs and also rid them of excess water. The mint is also a very powerful diuretic, that helps get rid of water retention and gas. This drink can also help you lose weight if you substitute its slightly spicy taste for the regular and diet colas that you normally drink and that are so responsible for weight gain. It also makes getting your eight glasses of water a day a bit more interesting, as your water is naturally more flavorful.
- 1To a large pitcher filled one quarter full of ice, add 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger and a handful of freshly shredded mint leaves. These ingredients are more potent if you can find organic versions of them. Stay away from using powdered or flaked versions of mint or ginger as they contain too much sodium and sodium causes, rather than prevents, bloating and weight gain. Either spearmint or peppermint will work great as the minty element in this drink.
- 3Drink this delicious, detoxifying water all day until it is gone. Once you have finished the jug, you can replenish it by adding more water as the mint, cucumber, lemon and ginger can usually be used twice. You can also add more ice if necessary. It is also a good idea to make the ice with pure spring water or distilled water, but not tap water.
- 4You can drink this weight loss water every day to flush fat from your body with no ill effects. To make the flavor more interesting you can also add a handful of your favourite berries or a sprig of coriander or another favorite herb. Thyme and tarragon are savory herbs that also add interesting flavors to lemon and ginger drink blends.
Method 15: With A Parsley and Lemon Meal Replacement Drink
There are several ways that this drink, which contains parsley, lemon, apple cider vinegar and ginger can work to help you lose weight. First of all, it is meant to be consumed instead of your evening meal, which helps cut at least 500 calories from most people's daily diets, resulting in two pounds of weight loss in a week. Secondly, parsley is a very powerful diuretic that flushes your kidneys and reduces belly bloat. Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar are both astringent ingredients that help sweep the body of fat and cholesterol and also help balance the pH of the blood so that every organ in your body works more efficiently. Both ginger and cinnamon stimulate your circulation so that your body works more efficiently to detoxify itself and flush excess fat and water.
- 3Drink this mixture, instead of having dinner for two weeks. The later in the evening that you drink it the better, so the ingredients can work to detoxify your body over night.

- 4If you need to lose more weight, wait another two weeks before beginning the diet again. This gives your organs a rest from the extreme detoxification process that is part of drinking this home made weight-loss drink.
