A Recipe For Fat Flush Water? We Think Not!

You may have come across this or a similar recipe before. You may have read the claims that drinking this will help flush broken down fat cells from your body. But they are complete and utter hogwash. If this were actually a viable solution for ridding yourself of fat, we at BodyRock would have very little to talk about. Don't get us wrong, it is extremely important to stay hydrated. The amount of water you will need to achieve hydration depends on your size and activity level (and how warm it is outside) but it can't be done in order to lose fat. The recipe looks delish: 2 Liters (64 oz.) Purified Water 1 Tangerine, sectioned 1/2 Grapefruit, sliced 1 Cucumber, sliced 4 Peppermint or Spearmint Leaves Ice, (made from purified water) optional Mix in a pitcher before bed and drink throughout the entire next day. Please consider using organic produce for this, if it is unavailable to you, thoroughly wash the produce before adding it to the water. It makes some serious claims saying that:
  • The tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar and because they are high in vitamin C, you increase the fat burning during exercise
    Tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat.
  • The grapefruit will increase metabolic energy, burn fat and increase energy
  • The cucumber helps you to feel more full, and acts is a natural diuretic which means less bloating and water retention
  • The mint leaves aid in digestion
Don't fall for these claims! They are true claims in terms of some of the benefits to your digestive functioning but you aren't going to lose any real weight by drinking it. There is nothing that burns fat better than regular exercise and clean eating. It is truly the only way. The only thing this recipe is good for is a really tasty, and healthy, alternative to soda. Sounds like a great summer thirst quencher but definitely not a miracle fat burner.
