3 Fat Burning Detox Waters for Weight Loss

3 Detox Waters for Weight Loss- these are my all-time favorite detox waters to cleanse my body and mind. Includes a citrus and mint infused water, honey and cinnamon water and a grapefruit and apple cider vinegar tonic.


There’s no other more important detox rule than this one: hydration! Whether you’re trying to lose a few pounds or you just want to flush the toxins out of your body, hydration is the key to making this successful. Start every morning by drinking two large glasses of pure water to kickstart your metabolism and help your body perform at its best.

If you add extra ingredients to enrich the minerals, vitamins and enzyme intake, than you’ve already reached the next level to naturally detox and feel energized! Although these are only added for taste and nutrients, you can eat them after you consume the infused water.

There are many ingredients that you can add in your water to boost the taste and help you flush the toxins out. Here are my favorites:

lemon and mint water

1. Fruits
Kiwi, lemons, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, apples – they’re all packed with enzymes and antioxidants to kick-start your body natural detox function, but also to nourish your cells with vitamins (especially vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-age ally). Fruits boost your metabolism and help the body eliminate the waste more rapidly.

grapefruit apple cider vinegar drink

2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider acts like a general toner for your body and especially for the digestive system. It soothes the digestive issues, has antibiotic effects, prevents indigestion and aids in weight loss. The acetic acid suppresses the appetite, reduces water retention and interferes with the ingested starches, reducing the number of calories that will enter into your bloodstream. It also reduces the water retention and help your body burn fats.

spice water

3. Cinnamon
Maybe you didn’t think before about adding cinnamon in other drink than tea or eggnog, but you can actually consider it for your detox waters. Cinnamon improves the insulin secretion, stabilizes the blood sugar levels and increase the glucose metabolism – all these are key effects for losing weight. Moreover, it installs the sensation of satiety and fullness. Pair it with honey and apple for a delicious taste and a speedy fat burn.

There isn’t a strict rule about making detox waters for weight loss. You just need to use pure or tap water, your favorite fat-burn ingredients and large pitchers to let the water infuse. The longer you infuse it, the strongest the flavor and more nutrients leaked into the water. Some of my favorite combinations include kiwi-mint-cucumber, carrot-cucumber-lemon or pineapple-lemon-coconut water – they are all detoxing and energizing. When it comes to fat-burn, these are my favorites:

  1. Can you ground cinnamon instead of the cinnamon sticks for the apple honey & cinnamon for the infused water?

    • Try adding cucumber and mint to lessen the flavor of lemon – The lemon might be too tart for you.

  2. Is it ok to let the fruit infuse in a small portion size that is fit for one person overnight instead a large pitcher?

  3. Most of the above I prefer taking Citrus Mint Detox Water, because it helps to get rid of indecision as well as heartburn problems.

  4. Statin users should consult their doctor before using grapefruit detox recipe. Grapefruit interacts with some medications.

  5. Hi
    The fruits that we use for Preparing Detoxifying water overnight, can this be eaten in the morning or can it be used in making Smoothie.
    I feel very guilty of throwing away the fruits

  6. Hi Maria,

    First of all nice post !!

    After reading your post last month, I decided to try one of detox water recipe which is listed by you.

    I have tried lemon with mint detox water to reduce belly fat but it can’t work for me. Could you please suggest me any other detox water recipe to reduce belly fat.

    Or I am taking it in wrong way. I am taking it early in the morning before taking my breakfast.

    Am I doing it correct?

    • Well, drinking one glass of detox water a day won’t zap your fat away. It aids weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Which means you still have to eat healthy and not to large of an amount and exercise a few times a week. Plus, you can’t get rid of fat from one specific area naturally, but combining detox waters with s healthy lifestyle, you can still loose some weight to reduce not ably fat from your stomach, but everywhere to look slimmer

  7. Yes you are doing it correct. It’s best to drink on an empty stomach an hour before you eat breakfast.tip for you, add two tbs of apple cider vingar to 4oz of water.
