Healthy Drink Recipes To Lose Weight

They say, spend your whole day in cardio and your belly will disappear.
But how the heck I figure out the time for the gym. I mean as a working mother I don’t have 1-2 hour for the gym. I am literally giving up on my belly and getting frustrated day by day because of my increasing weight. Somehow by researching for months, I found the solution.


To begin with, I felt that there is just a single answer to get in shape that is the gym. However, it isn’t workable for me.
I want an effortless way to lose weight. I don’t know how this sentence pop-ups in my head that “to put on weight eat more“. It means to lose weight, eat less. But it doesn’t mean we give up on food.
In short, you need to eat foods which are rich in fibers also fulfill your daily calories needs.

Now you think why fibers foods?

Let me tell you-

The calories produced by fiber-rich foods are not absorbed by the body soon and you won’t feel hungry for quite a while. So automatically, the quantity of food you usually eat in a day reduces.
In this article, I am going to reveal to you the list of fiber-rich foods alongside the healthy drink recipes made with them. Hence you will lose weight without doing much effort in cooking.
Just drink and relax.
