The Flat Belly Diet is touted as a plan that will help people shed extra pounds and inches that collect around the midsection and belly. Using proper nutrition, the diet helps to eliminate a build up of contaminants, fat, and excess water weight. Sassy water is one of the main staples of the Flat Belly Diet, and should be drunk every day.
Things You'll Need
- 8. 5 cups water
- 1 tsp/ grated ginger
- 1 medium cucumber
- 1 medium lemon
- 12 spearmint leaves
- Wide-mouthed Bottle or jug
Pour the water in the bottle or jug. Ideally, this water should be filtered, so that it is as pure as possible. If you don't want to buy several gallon jugs of water each week, you can invest in an water filter, such as Pur or Brita, in order to ensure that your water is filtered.
Wash the cucumber and spearmint as thoroughly as possible. If your cucumber isn't organic, it will have a waxy coating on it. This waxy outer coating can be removed by soaking the cucumber in apple cider vinegar and rinsing in warm water, while scrubbing with a rough towel.
Peel the brown outer coating of the ginger off with a vegetable peeler.
Slice the cucumber and ginger as thinly as possible. Cucumber is an important ingredient in the Flat Belly Diet sassy water because it is a natural diuretic, and helps the body release stored excess water.
Tear the spearmint leaves.
Add the ginger, cucumber, and spearmint to the filtered water. Shake the container well, mixing the filtered water and ingredients together. Ginger is an ingredient of the flat belly diet sassy water recipe because it's reported to boost metabolism.
Put the container in the refrigerator and drink it the following day. In order to have a successful diet, the water should be drunk instead of juices, sodas, and other drinks. If you live in a hot climate, consider making a double batch of Flat Belly diet sassy water, because your local weather could cause dehydration.
