Natural Fat Burning Drinks

Drinking fluids with fat-burning properties is one of the oldest and easiest ways to shed extra pounds. Here we will cover a few of the most effective drinks.

Lemon Water

Lemon water is one of the simplest and least expensive drinks to lose weight. Drinking a few glasses daily helps you naturally remove toxins, get rid of constipation, and suppress your appetite. In order to get the full effects of the lemon water’s metabolism-boosting qualities, you should start drinking it early in the morning.

Green Tea

People have used green tea to increase their metabolisms for ages. Although its effects are not 100% proven, most studies have shown a correlation between green tea and an increased ability to break down fat. In addition, it seems to prevent your body from creating more fat cells, and it keeps existing fat cells from growing! Yogi Tea’s Green Tea Antioxidant is one of the most popular teas that people use for weight loss. Although this version is caffeinated, choosing decaf green tea is no less effective. If you plan on drinking tea before bedtime or want to avoid caffeine, I recommend this decaffeinated version. There are so many fabulous health benefits of tea, and making it part of your everyday routine could improve your quality of life in so many ways.

Chamomile Tea

Another tea that helps with weight loss is chamomile tea. Chamomile tea acts by speeding up your digestive system, removing toxins, and helping you sleep soundly. Each of these factors helps with weight loss, because they reduce your stress and inflammation. The ideal time to drink chamomile tea is before bedtime so you can sleep soundly and burn fat while you sleep.

Fat Burning Supplements Found in Food

Two of the most common fat burning supplements, probiotics and Conjugated Linoleic Acid, are also naturally occurring in many foods.


Probiotics are healthy bacteria found in your gut that aid your digestion in so many ways! They regulate your appetite and fat storages and help with weight loss. Probiotics are most commonly found in yogurt, cultured vegetables, or man-made supplements. Probiotics found in food, however, are easier for your body to absorb. For example, the good bacteria found in dairy can survive the high acidity of your stomach and make it all the way to your colon where they are most needed.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid

Conjugated Linoleic Acid or CLA, as its more commonly known, is a fatty acid found in several supplements. However, it also exists naturally in several foods! CLA is great because it preserves your muscle tissue even as it breaks down your fatty tissue. The best part is that it does this without stimulating your central nervous system, causing less side effects than man made fat burners. CLA is naturally found in most dairy products, turkey, and seafood.

Natural Fat Burning Foods

There are also foods you can eat that will help you burn more fat. Regardless of whether you decide to take fat burners, you must make dietary changes in order to lose weight. Naturally, if you eat mostly healthy foods with fat-burning qualities, you will get the best results. Foods high in protein, veggies, and spicy foods have the greatest impact on weight loss. High protein foods like chicken and fish require so much energy to break down that you must also burn calories to digest them. Veggies, on the other hand, act as appetite suppressants. This is because you cannot fully digest them. Furthermore, spicy foods raise your body temperature, increasing your ability to burn calories. This is one of the reasons cayenne pepper is used in so many detox teas!

Natural Fat Burning Herbs


Cinnamon indirectly helps weight loss by balancing blood sugar levels. As a result, you produce less insulin and have fewer cravings. Since cinnamon has a naturally sweet flavor, it also acts as a great sugar replacement, reducing your caloric intake.

Look for diet pills that contain ginger. It is a natural ingredient that speeds up your digestion and metabolism. In addition, it does this without the side-effects of other types of diet pills. Obviously, ginger works best if combined with a healthy diet and exercise, but it can work wonders regardless.

Flax is another herb that stabilizes your blood sugar, but unlike cinnamon, it also increases your metabolism. Flaxseeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids, which activate a process called thermogenesis. This process helps your body burn more fat cells at a much higher rate.
