What to drink while slimming?

Every adult person is aware of the fact that their body needs a daily dose of fluids. It is often said that we should drink at least 1.5 litres of water each day. This does not mean, however, that the only good drink is water. Even those people who use a reduction diet can reach for other liquids.


At the beginning it is worth explaining that the exact amount of fluids that should be drunk depends on the height, weight, physical activity and climate in which the person lives. Losing weight requires both proper diet and physical activity, therefore in case of people who use a reduction diet, the need for liquids is quite high. Mineral water should be one of the most chosen products, due to the content of minerals that support metabolism and prevent mineral deficiencies that are dangerous to health. Products containing nutrients play an important role during the reduction diet, because eliminating some things from the diet increases the risk of deficiencies. While slimming you can also reach for spring water, which does not contain minerals, but it hydrates the body very well.


During the reduction diet you can also drink tea. Instead of black, however, it is worth choosing, for example, green tea. Green tea contains natural antioxidants, so it cleanses the body of harmful toxins. At the same time, it stimulates the digestive system to produce digestive juices and thus supports metabolism. Green tea also has other pro-health properties: it lowers cholesterol level, regulates sugar concentration in the blood and reduces blood pressure. That beverage can therefore be recommended to those seeking to reduce weight, as well as to all those who care about their health.


Black tea can also be replaced with red tea. This beverage speeds up the metabolism of fats, which means that they are immediately converted into energy. It contains a lot of polyphenols, thanks to which it increases the absorption of nutrients found in food. In addition, red tea regulates the secretion of bile and reduces cholesterol. It is recommended to drink it after meals and not on an empty stomach to prevent magnesium from being washed out.


During the reduction diet you can also reach for vegetable and fruit juices. Primarily tomato juice is recommended. It is low in calories, contains a lot of potassium and lycopene that protects from the harmful effects of free radicals. You should avoid sugar-sweetened kinds of juice. Of course, the black list also includes other sweet drinks, especially carbonated ones, for example cola.


Many people have doubts about coffee. Unfortunately, scientists do not agree whether coffee helps or harms during the reduction diet. There are special slimming coffees on the market that contain, for example, dietary fiber or chrome. However, it is worth using them wisely, treating them as a substitute for ordinary coffee, not as a miraculous slimming agent.
