Discover the three best natural drinks that will speed up your metabolism and help you burn more calories in the process.
Without further ado, here they are:
1. Cold water
Cold drinks force the body to spend more energy in order to maintain our body temperature at an optimal level.
This means that by consuming three large glasses of cold water throughout the day your body would have burnt 100 additional calories.
If you manage to do this every day, throughout the year you can lose up to 4.5 kg, provided you do not compensate these calories with other foods.
You can freely call coffee a natural energy drink. And numerous studies have shown that two to three cups of coffee throughout the day, before a workout allows us to train longer and harder – and that means that the body burns more calories.
The results of the studies recommend that exercisers could make up to 20 percent more repetitions during training unlike the usual practice.
However, it is important to remember that you should try to always drink your coffee without adding sugar and milk as this is the quickest way to feel the positive effects.
3. Green tea
Not only will green tea help to get rid of calories, but will also help you burn fat and get rid of unwanted weight.
One study demonstrated that individuals who drank four cups of green tea daily for two months lost nearly 3 kg more than those who drank only water.
Nutritional analysis of the European Journal also found that individuals who drink green tea have on average less weight and maintain a thinner waist.
