When we think about a healthy diet, the question is from where should we begin? It’s not easy to leave our Indian spicy food and switch to those salads all of a sudden. So, where we can begin is from choosing a habit of drinking these super morning drinks. What morning habits we Indians have is that, we consume tea or coffee as soon as we get up. Which is not right because with this we are consuming lots of calories early morning. Also, caffeine intake empty stomach is one habit which you should never get into. But instead of that, we can switch to some weight loss drinks which are advised to take ’empty stomach’. The drinks we are mentioning here helps boosting metabolism instantly. Like if you fall in a habit of consuming these daily, you will feel the change. They remove toxins from your body and are well known for being antioxidant agents or work as detox drinks. They give an antispasmodic effect. That is, they suppress hunger cravings and let your stomach muscles relax. Which in turn lets you consume less calories and lose weight. I have suggested this to many of my clients and the one’s who are regular at it, feels more energetic and loved this habit.
We are also telling you the basic method which will help you consume them on the go.
#1 Lemon Water:
Boil one glass of water . Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to it. Let it become lukewarm and then consume the same.
#2 Cumin Seeds (Jeera) Water:
There are two methods of making this.
- Overnight Drenching: Take 1 glass of water and add 1 tablespoon of Cumin seeds to it. Keep this aside for overnight. Next morning, strain the water and boil it till it becomes lukewarm. Now you can drink it and if needed, you can add a teaspoon of honey.
- Second method is, if you forget to drench the seeds at night, you can boil the same amount of seeds and water. And then strain and can drink it after it becomes lukewarm.
#3 Fennel Seeds (Saunf) Water:
As you prepared Cumin seeds water, you can make Fennel seeds water the same way.Its just, fennel seeds water can be consumed directly and need not be boiled. If you forgot to soak the seeds overnight, you can add fennel seeds to water and then boil it. Consume instantly as it gets lukewarm. You can consume the leftover Fennel seeds at any time of noon further.

Having Amla juice empty stomach early in the morning is considered as ideal drink one can have. However, 5-10ml of amla juice per day is suggested. This can be consumed in equal ratios of amla juice and water.

One cup a day of any of your favorite green tea – may it be Jasmine or Chamomile, can provide you with a lot of essential health tea benefits. While green tea is a diuretic, it is good that you double your intake of water too as it will keep you hydrated after all the frequent cleansing.
