Ginger juice or ginger water are just the best. Ginger water is made by boiling sliced ginger root in water and letting it cool. Ginger is natures #1 anti-inflammatory next to turmeric. If you drink 2oz. of fresh ginger juice it will boost your metabolism 30% over the period of a few hours. Do this twice each day, and wait till your jeans feel looser and looser.
2. Celery Juice
Make sure its organic. Drink at least 2 cups of this fresh juice per day. Not only will you lose weight, you'll protect your heart, heal your bowels, lower your blood pressure, sleep better, minimize headaches, and fight cancer.
Grapefruit is its own diet for good reason. Eat a half a grapefruit 30 minutes before each meal. You'll lower triglycerides and burn fat. Those who eat grapefruit seem to control their insulin levels better than those who drink fresh grapefruit juice. The additional fiber from eating them is helpful to the body. Carry on!

5. Cruciferous Vegetables
Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts.
Like other vegetables, they are high in fiber and tend to be incredibly fulfilling.
What’s more… these types of veggies also tend to contain decent amounts of protein.
They’re not as high in protein as animal foods or legumes, but they’re high compared to most vegetables.
A combination of protein, fiber and low energy density makes cruciferous vegetables the perfect foods to include in your meals if you need to lose weight.
They are also highly nutritious, and contain cancer fighting substances.
5. Brazil Nuts
The next time you want to chuck them from the nut mix, dont. They're actually little fat burners. They are high in selenium which is crucial to balance the thyroid and keep your metabolism burning steadily. They convert the thyroid hormone to its active form. They also bind up toxins which would have stored themselves as cellulite in the fatty tissues.
6. Chia Seeds
-About Sugar Absorption
Chia slows the impact of sugars on the system, if eaten together. Chia gel creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, which slows the conversion of carbs into sugar. That means the energy from the food is released steadily, resulting in more endurance. This is clearly of great benefit to diabetics in particular. It also means that you can combine chia with super-sweet tastes like apple juice and not get super-spiked.
Chia is reported to be beneficial for a vast range of issues:
7. Lemon Water
I can't say enough about lemon water for weight loss by detoxing as well as alkalizing the system, or even for just reducing puffiness.
