Put the jar in the fridge on Sunday night. Starting from Monday, drink a glass of tea every day. Keep drinking for a week.

Strawberry smoothie

The key to strengthening your muscles is to consume more protein. This milkshake increases your protein intake, and strawberries activate your metabolism.

  • 1/2 liter of skimmed milk

Birch Water

Birch water is another great drink for supporting your weight loss efforts, as it aids in eliminating excess salt, phosphates, uric acids, ammonia and certain medicines. Getting rid of these impurities, as mentioned, can be important when it comes to losing weight, as when toxins are allowed to build up, the body tends to hold onto fat as a way to protect its organs. If those toxins are eliminated, it eases the struggle most of us face when trying to lose pounds.

Birch water also offers a host of other benefits too, including supporting liver health, thanks to its ability to eliminate toxins, which takes that heavy burden off the liver. It may also help lower cholesterol to support heart health, offer joint pain relief and a clearer complexion.

Spiced infusion

This green tea infusion has lots of wonderful health benefits. Green tea, pepper, and cinnamon speed up your metabolism, and honey detoxifies your body.


How to make it:

  • Prepare a cup of green tea.
  • Add some honey.
  • Add a pinch of cayenne pepper (less than the honey).
  • Add a tablespoon of ground cinnamon.

Lemon Water

Lemon water may be incredibly simple, all you do is mix the juice of a lemon into a glass of water, but it offers a ton of benefits, including the ability to raise the metabolism and burn fat. Whip up some in a large water bottle and sip on it throughout the day for the best effects. Not only will you stay hydrated, which keeps the metabolism burning at its max, but as lemons contain flavonoids with potent antioxidant properties, it will help protect your cells from damage.

Lemon water also helps to aid digestion, helping the body to better absorb nutrients from other foods and it aids in regulating insulin spikes too.

Other drinks that can boost your metabolism

Coconut water, which you can drink directly from the coconut, and black coffee help speed up your metabolism and burn fat faster. You can drink them in the morning right after you wake up, after breakfast, or before exercising.
