Drinking fruit infused water has multiple health benefits. One of them is maintaining a healthy weight. After preparing a jug or pitcher of water infused with fruit in the morning, you can sip it all day to promote healthy weight loss. Here is a brief explanation of how it works.

Improved Metabolism

Drinking infused water speeds up the rate at which your body burns calories. This will in turn help you to lose weight. Studies conducted by Dubnov-Raz, G. and other scientists [1] showed that drinking water raised the resting energy expenditure in both adults and children. In fact, low intake of water has been linked with obesity. A good rule of thumb is to take at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water daily. Infusing your water with fruit will make this more enjoyable.

Feeling of Fullness

Taking water infused with fruit will help to reduce food cravings. If you drink at least 8 cups daily, you will feel less hunger throughout the day. The dietary fiber in the fruits as well as the water promotes a healthy feeling of fullness. Thus, you will not be tempted to go for those tasty snacks containing a lot of refined carbohydrates. This will help you to control the amount of calories you consume every day and achieve your ideal body weight.

Better Release of Fat Cells

Water infused with lemon, oranges and other citrus fruit juices is an excellent source of natural vitamin C. A study conducted at the Arizona State University [2] revealed that inadequate vitamin C decreases the body’s ability to utilize fat as a source of fuel for daily activities. Eventually this unused fat gets stored in the body. However, you can maintain a healthy weight by slicing a lemon, two oranges and half a cup of mint leaves into eight cups of water to create a healthy fat burning drink.

Those are three weight loss benefits of taking fruit infused water. Now that you have these facts, you should go ahead and make it a part of your daily diet.
