Dr. Oz Recipe To Flush Body Fats

What are the ways to eliminate the body fats that have accumulated over the years?

The carbohydrates that you consume is usually converted into energy which your body can use. This energy is burned when you do activities. Your body's metabolism greatly influences the use of the stored energy.

Had you ever wonder why your friend who eats as much as you do, is skinnier? Or why are you not losing enough weight in spite of the fact that you are doing regular work out in the gymn? It is actually because of metabolism.

When your metabolic rate increase, the energy is easily burned, so there is less fat stored in your body.

And of course you are asking, well how do we increase our metabolic rate? Metabolic rate can actually be increased as we increase water consumption.

Researchers in Germany report that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories. In a clinical research, drinking half a liter of water metabolic rates, or the rate at which calories are burned, increased by 30% for both men and women. The increases occurred within 10 minutes of water consumption

So the more you drink water, the more energy is use by your body, your metabolic rate increase, and you have less fat stored in your body.

According to Dr. Oz, this fat flush water recipe can help you increase your metabolism, and at the same time reduce bloating and aid in your digestion.

Fat Flush Water Recipe

8 cups of water
1 fresh cucumber, peeled and cut into thin slices
1 teaspoon of grated (or powdered) ginger root
2 fresh oranges
1 lemon, also cut into thin slices

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients. Grate the ginger root and have about 1 teaspoon ready. Peel the cucumber, rinse it with fresh water and cut it into thin slices. Cut the whole lemon into thin slices as well, and juice the oranges.

Step 2: Combine all the ingredients. Place them in a glass container and let them sit there overnight in order to release the great aroma.

Step 3: The very next day you can indulge in the refreshing mixture. You can consume it every single day without any restraint, and soon you will cheer to its benefits.
