To lose weight is not easy- it requires both motivation and knowledge.

While I was a little skeptical at first, I've heard many testimonies from people that have drank this cocktail for 5 days and began to feel a difference. Sounds worth a shot to me!
* 8 glasses water
* 1 tbsp ginger
* One sliced cucumber
* One sliced lemon
* 12 mint leaves
It's important to keep in mind that all the ingredients should be combined with water and left overnight, preferably in a cool place.
Start each day by drinking one glass of the drink, and also drink it instead of plain water whenever you're thirsty.
How does it work?
Ginger is scientifically proven to increase the body's heat production and combustion. This effect is certainly not sufficient in itself to cause weight loss, but it can help.
Mint is not only a lovely flavor enhancer, its leaves are very useful. Mint leaves contains vitamins C and E, folic acid, calcium and iron.
Cucumber has low calories and low amounts of carbohydrates, but contains fiber and many important vitamins.
Many studies have revealed that lemon increases fat burning. Dr. Shilpi Agarwal recommends squeezing lemons into water, or adding lemon slices before drinking it.
According to Dr. Agarwal, the vitamin C found in lemons enhances combustion. "The addition of vitamin C in the diet is a great way to boost energy and combustion on," she says.
