Despite putting in long hours on exercising and other forms of physical activities, many people find it difficult to lose weight. A diet enriched with weight-loss-friendly foods could do wonders to help you shed extra kilos. Detox drinks infused with the goodness of such foods fare better in the process. Since it's mostly water, it won't add up to the calorie count and will also flush out the toxins from the body. Lemon water is one of the best foods when it comes to burning excessive calories. The citrus fruit is packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and soluble fibres that help in optimal weight management. Lemon detoxifies, rejuvenates and keeps the digestive system running smoothly.
Lemon combined with fruits from the family of berries makes for a powerful combination. Lemon also mutes the somewhat acrid taste of berry fruits that some may find appalling. The fruits infused in water to make detox drink can prove extremely beneficial for staying healthy and fit. Berries are a low-calorie source of vital nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Even though they are low on calorie content, they are highly filling fruits and proffer a high satiating level.
