Weight loss is not an easy task, we agree. But what is often viewed as a huge challenge may not be as difficult if you start with a little patience and consistency. A subtle tweak here and there in your diet and lifestyle is all you need to begin with, and not some unrealistic changes that thousands of links on the internet would suggest you to do. While some of us are blessed with good metabolism, which helps in losing whatever weight we put on in a jiffy, others may take a longer time. Whatever be the case, one aspect that plays a huge role (in fact, the primary role) in losing the extra kilos is our diet. One cannot just keep noshing on greasy curries, parathas and fries while dreaming of a perfect body.  

Experts around the world also recommend to support a balanced diet with exercise and light workout to start with. Besides a high-protein and high-fibre diet, keeping yourself hydrated is also of prime importance. There are many simple drinks that can also aid your weight-loss journey. These weight loss drinks will not only help you manage your weight, but also boost your body's metabolism and fasten your digestion.

Here are three amazing drinks that you can make at home easily, and consume first thing in the morning.  

1. Pineapple Juice  

As per experts, pineapple is full of bromelain, which aids and smoothens the process of digestion and cuts down inflammation. It also helps boost metabolism. The juice also has lemon, which is known to be rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants that boost immunity and regulate satiety and body weight. 


  • 1 cup pineapple (finely chopped) 
  • 1 tbsp lime juice 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder 
  • Black salt, to taste


  • Put the pineapple pieces into a blender, and blend well. 
  • Now, pour the pineapple juice into a glass and add cinnamon powder, lime juice, and black salt. 
  • Stir the mixture well.


2. Green Tea And Mint

If belly fat is your main concern, this green tea with mint can be your perfect partner in the weight loss journey. The caffeine present in green tea acts as a stimulant that has been proven to aid the fat burning process. Green tea is also packed with antioxidants, known as catechins that aid weight loss by mobilising fat. Besides, mint stimulates digestive enzymes, which help facilitate better absorption of nutrients from food, which is tied with better metabolism. 


  • 1 tbsp green tea leaves/1 tea bag 
  • 4-5 mint leaves 
  • 1 cup hot water


  • Add one cup of hot water and mint leaves and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 5 more minutes. 
  • Now, add green tea leaves and let them soak for 5 minutes. 
  • Strain and pour the boiled water into a tea mug.  
  • You can add a bit of honey for flavour.

3. Ginger And Lemon Water

Ginger is known to work wonders for our digestive health. Ginger protects and heals the gut, fastens the movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract, and reduces bloating and cramps. Add to it, lemon which is a rich source of Vitamin C and works as a detoxifying agent. 


  • 1 inch ginger root 
  • 1 tsp of lime juice 
  • 1 cup water 
  • ¼ tsp roasted cumin powder 


  • Cut ginger in small pieces and blend in a blender. 
  • Add water and blend it well.
