Day 4: Flush Toxins and Balance Weight with Water

Blue-Drop-2008tInitially you will see a water weight gain when you start to burn fat, so keep drinking lots of water to flush that out and reduce toxins. Don’t forget to start your day with a nice cup of ginger or cinnamon tea to jumpstart your metabolism for the day! It will also help to flush out excess water and reduce inflammation in the body.

Hate to drink water? Some variations include making a pitcher of raspberry hibiscus tea or orange, lemon or lime slice water. Just slice the citrus fruit into thin slices and put in a pitcher. Add filtered water and chill. Instant refreshing beverage that helps to balance the PH level of the body while preventing the “I hate the bland taste of water” feeling.

I don’t recommend drinking carbonated beverages often but every now and then try a sparkling water with citrus–it has zero sugar and can add a little zest to your everyday water.
