Extra weight on that weighing scale is a panic trigger for many of us. Maintaining an ideal weight is a combination of mindful eating, doing some physical activities, reducing stress levels, getting enough sleep and staying hydrated. Yes, you read the last bit right. Many dieticians worldwide highly recommend consuming more water and fluids to shed those extra pounds and stay hydrated during the process. And healthily reaching the targeted weight is a challenge.

In 2 litres of water, add two tablespoons of barley seeds. Allow the solution to boil to that point when the water turns pink in colour. Allow it to cool, drain the water and drink it 2- 3 times a day to start fighting those stubborn fats.
Aloe vera juice
Aloe vera works as a successful aid to detox our body and lose weight. Do not go by its taste, as it is a little bitter. Wash aloe vera, scrape the pulp and grind in a blender. Now strain the pulp to extract its juice. Have this juice regularly to achieve your weight loss goals.
