Weight Loss-Sassy Water-Quick and Easy
How to Make Sassy Water !
You’ve probably heard that you need about eight glasses of water a day for adequate hydration. Drinking water and even eating “watery” foods like melon, greens, and other fruits and vegetables has enormous health benefits, including warding off fatigue. But perhaps the most important belly benefit of proper hydration is how it helps maintain your body’s proper fluid balance and guard against water retention. It also helps prevent constipation, which can cause bloating.
Eight glasses of water is just a guideline; everyone’s fluid needs vary according to activity level and body. But eight is a good starting point. All fluids (and water-packed foods) count toward your overall fluid intake.
We call this Sassy Water, in honor of its creator, former Prevention nutrition director Cynthia Sass, and because it’s a heck of a lot perkier than plain old water. But the ingredients aren’t just for flavor: The ginger also helps calm and soothe your GI tract.
Cynthia Sass’ sassy water:
- 2 liters (0.5 US gal) or 8 1/2 cups of fresh water (use good quality water, filtered if need be)
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
- 1 medium lemon, sliced thinly
- 12 fresh mint leaves – try to obtain spearmint leaves but other mint leaves will work too; choose small ones
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. Drink the entire pitcher by the end of each day.
People who have consumed this drink regularly say that the results they achieved are more than fantastic if you take in consider that you could lose up to 12 kilograms, of course by following a proper diet regimen as well.
This “Sassy” water is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers, nor for people having stomach problems or allergy to any of the ingredients listed!
Only for your Health Enjoy It!
