There is a lot of hype around grapefruit and lemon infused water for weight loss. It is great if that is the ONLY way your drinking water, but these drinks are quickly becoming "miracle" solutions, when in fact, they do not work miracles. There are some drinks, when paired with a healthy diet, that can help you reach your weight loss goals.
1. Coffee - The original energy drink!
Research has found that drinking 2 to 3 cups of BLACK coffee before a workout can make you work out longer and harder, meaning you can burn more calories. A study published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, found that exercisers were able to do almost 20% more on a leg press machine when they fueled up with coffee beforehand. The key here is to drink your coffee black. Adding cream and sugar will quickly undo any of the benefits of your caffeine charged workout. BodyNista offers a full line of Gourmet Instant Coffees that are healthy for you!

Skip the lemon and grapefruit and add a handful of ice instead. Cold beverages make your body burn calories in order to keep it in the 98.6 degree temperature range. If you drink three 24-ounce glasses of ice water a day, you could burn 100 extra calories, says Mitzi Dulan, R.D., nutritionist for the Kansas City Royals and author of The Pinterest Diet. If you do this everyday, those calories add up to a loss of 10 pounds over the course of a year!
3. Green Tea
Green tea is natural calorie free drink that helps you to burn fat and lose weight. In one study, participants who drank 4 cups of green tea each day for 2 months, lost 6 more pounds than those who just drank water. In 2013, an analysis from the European Journal of Nutrition, found that regular green tea drinkers weight less and have smaller waists. Scientist speculate that it is the combination of caffeine and the antioxidants, known as catechins, that have this impact on the body.
