“The Ultimate Detox and Weight Loss Secret” Homemade Infused Water With Fruit

You should always drink lots of water. Adding fruit just makes it taste better. On a normal basis, you should take your weight divide it by two and drink that amount of water in oz. For example, if you weigh 120lbs you take 120/2 and get 60. So you should drink at least 60oz of water on a normal day and if you are trying to loose weight you should drink a little more.
water GTMEveryone knows they need to drink more water, but glass after glass of plain ole’ H2O can get boring. Flavored water alternatives, though, may not be worth it: There’s little or no benefit from nutrient additions to vitamin waters, energy drinks, and juices, according to a new study from the University of Toronto and Ryerson University in Canada. And since almost all of these boosted beverages have added sugar, you could actually be harming your health. (They’re also mentioned in The Worst Drinks for Your Body.)

If you get bored of water, there’s a better way to quench your thirst: Infused waters can upgrade the flavor without any nutritional drawbacks. You just let fruit and herbs sit in water for a few hours and voila! A delicious, healthy alternative to water. To prove it, we’ve got many delicious fruit and herb combinations. These simple detox water recipes are inexpensive, have almost zero calories, and taste great too! You can even take them to go anywhere with a convenient fruit infused water bottle.
