First of all, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of eggplants.

Eggplant possesses the virtue of having large amounts of nutrients, while also being low in calories. They’re also excellent diuretics, fight fluid retention, while also having a satiating effect.

That’s why eggplant water has very cleansing and detoxifying properties. Plus, it’s fat-free and barely has any calories.  Not only that, it also provides the necessary nutrients to complement a healthy and balanced diet.

However, make no mistake: in order to reduce belly fat – or to lose weight – you need to also change your life habits. This means that eggplant water will only help you if you eat a balanced diet and exercise at least half an hour a day

What other benefits do eggplants provide?

In addition to the previous benefits, eggplants offer a plethora of other benefits:

  • Eggplants help control cholesterol. Their components absorb the fats in the foods you eat with them and circulate them through the intestines.
  • They eliminate toxins in the body and regulate intestinal movement, making it great for fighting constipation.
  • They have antioxidant properties thanks to their vitamin E and anthocyanin content. This antioxidant protects against various types of cancer and cardiac disease.
  • Eggplants also have a sufficient amount of potassium and some sodium, which are important for the nervous and cardiovascular systems.
  • The fiber in eggplants helps lower blood sugar levels, thereby helping diabetics.
  • They also have folic acid, which is good for the bones.
  • Eggplants are great for individuals who suffer from liver problems, as they stimulate bile functioning.
  • They’re a vegetable that’s very rich in magnesium and iron, and can prevent anemia and improve your defenses.

How to make eggplant water

The recipe needed to lose weight with eggplant water is simple:

  • Buy a medium-sized eggplant, peel the skin off, and wash well and cut into cubes.
  • Then, get a dark jar and pour half a liter of water into it, while adding the eggplant cubes. Allow it to steep overnight, which is why you need to make it the night before to make sure it steeps correctly overnight.

How to consume it

  • Drink it fresh with a bit of lemon juice. This will make it taste better, and you’ll also be adding more antioxidants.
  • Remember to drink it before your two main meals, and do this for an entire week.
  • Drink it for seven consecutive days.
  • We recommend following this diet at least once a month, because not only does it help fight belly fat, it also helps cleanse the body.
  • During that week, eat a salad and juice-based diet, and reduce industrial fats and refined flour as much as possible.
  • Drink half a liter of eggplant water a day, one glass before both of your main meals.
  • In addition to drinking eggplant water, you should also eat eggplant in its other forms: baked, boiled. However, never eat it raw. Raw eggplant is toxic because it contains an alkaloid known as solanine, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
