5 Amazing Detox Recipes for Weight Loss

Carrying extra body fat is among the most dangerous things you can do, and the risks of suffering from serious health issues increase the longer you carry that weight with you. As it stands, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of numerous diseases and debilitating health conditions including several types of cancers (breast, colon, etc.), coronary heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and many others.

If you want to lose fat, you need to drink water. But how many times have you had plain water then decided to eat a cookie after just so you could have some flavors in your mouth?

The following detox water recipes are not only delicious but also contain multi-vitamins and ingredients that are packed with fat-burning enzymes. Drinking fruit infused water is a safe and natural way to stay hydrated while achieving a clean, healthy body from within.
