Recipe: Even HEALTHIER Water!

OK. So my coworker JoJo was reading/heard about this water that is supposed to help “flush fat.” I put “flush fat” in quotations because, let’s face it, there really isn’t anything you can eat or drink that is just going to melt away fat from your body. There are things, however, that are better for your body and will help your body use calories/energy in the most effective way. This water is supposed to help with that.

It was featured on the Dr. Oz show, which I know makes you all really excited to try it. ALl jokes aside, this water is actually rull tasty and refreshing. Here is some health mumbo jumbo from Dr. Oz’s website:

Besides its main ingredient of water, the Fat Flush contains grapefruit that’s loaded with vitamin C to help your body turn fat into fuel. The tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat. Cucumber helps you feel full and acts as a natural diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention. And lastly, it has peppermint, which is not only refreshing but also promotes better digestion and stomach calm. Make a big pitcher of Fat Flush Water every morning. The longer it sits, the better it will taste. Drink at least one 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal for 10 days straight.

Here is how you make it:

Water
1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine (I used an orange because TJ’s didn’t have tangerines)
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves (or, you know, way more than that. You could garnish a cup of gasoline with mint and I would probably drink it.)
Ice

Directions
Combine ingredients in a large pitcher.

Anyway, my office is obsessed with it. Maybe you will be too.

  1. Great pics. It looks so colorful – and I’m sure tastes great. I’m excited to try this.

    I actually saw another recipe where people freeze strawberries, mint and kiwi into ice cubes. Pull out the cubes as you need, and its a great, refreshing, tasty way to jazz up your water!
