Detox it Up!!!

Fitness Friday!!!
Hello KPVI Folks!!! It was so fun to spend time with Matt & Libby again and share some of my favorite detox drinks!! Check out the links below for recipes and more info on each drink!! 

I saved the best for last, a couple years ago a good friend of mine that is a personal trainer shared with me Sassy Water. It is a great detox!!! You drink in place of your water for 7 days and then you reap the benefits of 5-7 pounds of weight loss. It is kinda like scrubbing bubbles for your colon. You’ll notice an increase in energy and overall well being. This is not a cleanse to do on a regular basis, you want to only do this one- every six weeks ( at the most). As part of a healthy diet.

Sassy Water
1 Cucumber Sliced thin
2 TBS grated Ginger root — you can use a microplane (just be careful don’t injure yourself like Matt)
1 Whole Lemon – Sliced
14 Mint Leaves
Add to 1 Gallon of Water and Drink daily for 7 days!

Good Luck!!!

    Thanks for the recipe. I love to drink water & usually throw in a lemon or cucumber slice in there too. So great meeting you at Snap. Look forward to staying in touch.

    Okay, just making sure I have this right… do you buy all the ingredients once and keep refilling it with a gallon of water each day or do you buy one of each of the ingredients and replace it completely each day? Sorry if it's a lame question. :)

    I know this may sound dumb but I just slice and grate the ingredients and let them sit in the water? If so how long should it sit in the water before I drink it? Also, is this something that tastes good or is it one of those detox drink you have to force yourself to drink?

      Jen, I usually let my detox waters steep overnight but at the minimum you'll want to them to sit for at least 10 minutes. I personally like the taste of this water. But I have friends who didn't like it as much. They added a packet of crystal light or other 5 calorie mix in to help out with the flavor… It's all up to your personal taste preference. Good Luck!!!

      I don't know why you would add crystal light or any of those drink mixes to a detox water since they are full of sugar whether it be artificial or "natural" and synthetic chemicals. I would not recommend doing that.

    This may be a silly queston…but there doesn't seem to be any ingredients that make it dangerous to drink. Why only a week and then wait 6wks. These are all ingredients I eat a lot so just curious.

      If you want a good metabolism boosting everyday drink you should try my Apple detox water.. That would be a great follow up to your Sassy Water Cleanse. <br /><br />Thanks!<br /><br />Andie

      This is definitely the more potent of the two. I like the Jillian Michaels one for a more regular detox and every month or so I&#39;ll do this one to really get a good cleanse. Warning this one will clean you out!! <br /><br />Thanks!!<br /><br />Andie <br />

    For the last one month I have been drinking Sassy water every day, as I really like its refreshing taste, and since it has nothing harmful, I felt that drinking it as part of my daily routine would help me. I thought it would help me lose weight, but my weight is the same, and I don&#39;t mind it, for I feel really good and it also helps me finish my quota of water for the day.<br />I make it

      Rama, <br />I&#39;m sorry to hear that the Sassy Water didn&#39;t help you out!! I have had great success with it! A couple thoughts came to me that hopefully will help you out on your weight loss journey! As we get older our body has a harder time processing carbs. So the more you can trim those from your diet the more you&#39;ll see the scale move! Also you might want to talk to a doctor about

      Everyone is so different I would give it a little more time. The ginger root is the key ingredient to the colon cleansing so make sure you&#39;re adding fresh ginger daily if you are not seeing any &quot;action&quot;…

    How important is the mint? I know for sure I can find all the other ingredients fresh but not sure about mint leaves. (I live in Seoul so sometimes it hard finding special things due to my language barrier)

    I was researching Sassy Water… and can you still drink it and lose weight if you don&#39;t plan on doing the Flat Belly Diet by Prevention? From what I was reading, it said the Sassy Water is the first step in Prevention&#39;s Flat Belly Diet, and sometimes if you eat carbs on it, etc. your body can actually retain water (as I guess the flat belly diet is a low carb, high protein diet). I was

    Hello. I was curious, I drink more then a gallon of water a day because I am always so thirsty. So do I drink the gallon of sassy water a day and then replace the rest of my water intake with regular water? Thanks in advance!!
