The juice of lemon stimulates the hormone noradrenaline, which boosts metabolism and increases fat burning.
Likewise, the vitamin C in the lemon contributes to collagen formation. Thus, lemons support not only fat burning but also body toning.
Drink a glass of lukewarm water with half a squeezed lemon before breakfast. This will boost metabolism and fat burning. Alternatively, you can sweeten the freshly squeezed lemon juice with a little honey, should it be too sour for you.
5 ginger (fresh, organic)
250 ml water (boiling hot)
Put the washed slices (with or without peel, according to taste) of ginger in a pot and pour hot water for the ginger water. Allow steeping for 10 – 20 minutes.
Once the ginger water has cooled down, strain it through a sieve and enjoy.
Sweeten the ginger water with honey or cane sugar.
Tips for the recipe
If the water is boiled with peel, the ginger should, of course, be washed well beforehand and rubbed dry. With peel, it gives an even more intense flavor.
Ginger is healthy in many ways. Not only does it stimulate metabolism and digestion, but it heats the body with its aromatic substance, oleoresin. This heating increases fat burning.
For warming ginger water, cut 3-4 slices of ginger (with peel) from the tuber and pour hot water over it. Let it steep for about 15 minutes. Sweeten with agave syrup if needed.
Your homemade ginger water is not only a delicious alternative to tap water but also healthy.
Effect of ginger water:
Our grapefruit juice recipe tastes deliciously bittersweet and is just as good as a delicious drink before a meal as it is as a sundowner on hot days. But there are even more delicious possibilities in this vitamin C-rich fruit.
Two pink grapefruit
4 cl mint syrup, clear
100 ml lychee juice
150 ml tonic water
Grapefruit and lychee: bittersweet juice delight.
It only takes five minutes, but it’s something special: our grapefruit juice will sweeten up a hot summer day just as much as the beginning of an excellent multi-course meal. Wonderfully refreshing but not too sour thanks to the lychee juice, the grapefruit juice is suitable as a non-alcoholic sundowner as well as an aperitif: Slightly bitter, tart, or sour drinks are considered tasty. You can, of course, “spice up” the grapefruit juice recipe a bit by mixing alcohol with it: It tastes best with 2 cl gin or vodka and does its job as a stomach-opening aperitif even better with these spirits added. Our cocktail Henderson prime gives you another tasty alternative for a drink with grapefruit and gin.
Grapefruit: healthy and refreshing
Whether you can lose weight with grapefruit remains to be seen (even though fresh grapefruit has hardly any calories) – but it is fair to say that grapefruit is healthy. Like most citrus fruits, grapefruit contains a lot of vitamin C, which mainly supports the immune system in the body. But beware: it is better to squeeze the fruit yourself to enjoy the healthy juice (sweeten with a bit of xylitol if necessary) because the purchased fruit juice often contains a lot of sugar. Also, the color of fresh grapefruit varies from light yellow to dark red—the redder the flesh, the sweeter the fruit.
The bitter substance naringin contained in grapefruits stimulates metabolism and digestion. Like lemons, grapefruits have a high vitamin C content. This contributes to fat burning in the body.
Drink half a glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice once a day before meals. One glass is enough to help you lose weight. Attention: grapefruit is not suitable when taking birth control pills!
Beet juice is not to everyone’s taste, but it is a true all-rounder.
The red juice contains a lot of vitamin C and B, which promote fat burning.
Likewise, it has plenty of nutrients and is therefore perfect for detoxing.
Peel the beet and put it in a blender or juicer. Add a carrot and half a lemon to make the detoxifying drink tastier.
Red grape juice contains the antioxidant resveratrol. This is said to help the body burn fat faster. It also stimulates metabolism, which also contributes to weight loss.
Consume only pure grape juice.
One glass a day is already enough. Drink it preferably before going to bed. This is said to boost fat burning overnight.
Juicing can be used for a wide variety of health purposes, and both the juices consumed and the way they are prepared will vary depending on your objectives. If you start with juicing, there is no need to become too advanced too quickly. This applies especially to the use of vegetables in juicing, about which so few people have an adequate understanding. Vegetables will work best once the body is in a clear state, relatively free of interfering toxins, so it is a good idea to start with fruit juicing and then bring in vegetables when you are ready.
