Getting a flat stomach isn’t easy task that can be accomplished in 24 hours or a week. Or at least not in a healthy way. However, it can be done. You just have to try to improve your life habits and be constant and consistent every day. Here are some great detox juices for you to try out.

If there’s one thing that the body rewards, it’s consistency. That’s why it’s important to take the time to find the most convenient weight loss plan. To do this, it’s advisable to consult a nutritionist.

Since the belly is an area of the body that tends to gain volume and cause us discomfort when we don’t eat well and lead a sedentary lifestyle, it’s important to focus on working on it little by little. Not only with a good diet, but also with a proper exercise routine.

Sometimes, fluid retention may be influencing the volume of your abdomen, making it look much “bigger” and “heavier” than it really is. In this case, it would be ideal to take steps to help the body expel the retained fluids and thus, little by little, deflate the abdomen.

To keep you hydrated and at the same time stimulate urination, we suggest you try the following detox juices. They’re a healthy alternative that, apart from helping you to achieve a flatter stomach, will take good and will help you have more energy throughout the day. Why not try them?!

To prepare this recipe, you just combine fruits and vegetables in a pitcher of water. It’s best to let the drink sit for a few hours before drinking so that the water absorbs everything.

Ingredients

Preparation

  • Wash, drain and cut the cucumber into small slices. There’s no need to peel it or discard the seeds.
  • Cut the orange into slices (no need to peel it).
  • Wash the mint leaves.
  • Add all the ingredients into the blender, add the glass of water and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the drink into a pitcher, add the orange slices and move them to different sections of the pitcher with the help of a fork or spoon.
  • Serve and enjoy.

Instead of adding orange slices, you can add cucumber slices to the drink, to give it a fresher taste. Try the option that’s best for you.

Conclusion

Food cravings can easily lead to the consumption of unhealthy beverages and foods that, far from helping you achieve your goal of a flat stomach and weight loss, will only hinder you.

That’s why you need to have healthy options to fall back on, like these detox juices we’ve talked about or some nutritious snacks. You can ask your nutritionist what the best options are for you and how you can take advantage of them in your diet.
