Weight Loss & Maintenance lifestyle

Friday, July 18, 2014

I am always trying to live a healthy lifestyle but my healthy habits seem to fall after three weeks after trial. It was the same pattern with my boxing classes, drinking cinnamon/acv, low carb intakes and the list goes on.
The one thing I have truly been faithful to is water! Water has so many amazing benefits that literally replenished my life.
According to WebMD:

-Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids.
-Water Can Help Control Calories
-Water Helps Energize Muscles
-Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good
-Water Helps Your Kidneys
-Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function

Those are great healing benefits don't you all think!?
Because I can stick by water I have decided to try to infuse my water with this great belly flattening recipe. According to Doctor Oz. and other "credible" sources (yes I don't think Dr.oz is all that credible), grapefruit, cucumber and mint leaves help to curb appetite and reduce belly fat. Of course I still do my workouts 3 times a week whether they are intense or not, and pray for the ultimate best!

I currently use 
1 slice grapefruit
½ cucumber, sliced
And A couple drops of peppermint oil (Because I do not have peppermint leaves)

Surprisingly it is not too bad. I added too much peppermint the first time but overall the water was quite refreshing. I am going to continue to watch Sheila (my belly I named her), and see the progress. 
Hopefully I can upkeep this water regimen.
