3 Flavoured Water Recipes To Reduce Bloating And Cravings

3 Flavoured Water Recipes To Reduce

Bloating And Craving

Hi all,

Are you too not happy about weight gain like me during the lockdown and restricted activity? I really crave sweets nowadays, and just can’t seem to control them.

I was never a sweet-toothed person, but lately, I crave sweets almost every day, and I wish I could do something about it. Well, here I share several ways to control my urges, which I am also trying. But coincidently, most of them involve, one thing only – Self-control. Once my dietician had suggested something extremely interesting, which made me curious and obviously being a curious cat I decided to give it a try, and believe me in four days I have managed to be away from sweets. Hmmm! Not bad for someone who couldn’t be away for even a single day.

Reduce Bloating And Cravings – How!

Try Natural Flavored Water

I drink 4 liters of water, so my dietician told me to try flavoring it a bit, and so now whenever I crave sweets, I take few sips and the water tastes so yum, I manage to control my cravings.

Here are a few recipes of natural flavoring water without increasing the calorie content but just its nutrient value. Please do not fall for the flavored waters available in markets – most contain preservatives, artificial sweeteners, artificial colorings, dextrose, high fructose corn syrup, and refined sugar (read those labels!)

You can make your own infusions at home – it’s really very easy.  Simply add fresh fruits except for banana mostly citrus and berries are ideal, fragrant fresh herbs and spices also many herbs complement to fruit flavors, mash the fruits and herbs with a wooden spoon, to filtered water and put it in the fridge.

Try different combinations to find the taste you like – it’s so much better for you than fizzy drinks!

Here are a few awesome ones I tried to reduce bloating and cravings.

GREEN TEA, MINT & LIME WATER
