The majority of people around the world have some kind of issue with their weight. Some are underweight, but most people are overweight, at least for a bit. While it shouldn’t be an issue if you’re overweight for just a pound or two, many people are struggling with a lot of excess weight that can seriously harm your health.
If you’re looking for ways to shed those extra pounds, you’ve surely tried it all. Crash diets are dangerous and rarely work. Miracle solutions found in the store don’t work too – they’re often a scam. However, there is one simple-to-prepare natural recipe you can try that will make your journey to transformation a successful one.
You can learn the recipe below and try it out. Make sure to read how each of the ingredients helps you shed weight below it.
Weight Loss Tonic
- 20 pieces of turmeric (small)
- 15 cucumbers
- 15 limes
- 15 peppers (green, red, etc.)
- 2 jalapenos
- 2 cups of chia seeds
- 4 handfuls of parsley
- A pinch of Himalayan salt
Juice all the fruits and veggie together. If your blender is big enough, you can do them all at once. If it’s not, you can combine them altogether in the end. Pour the juice in a large container and pour yourself a glass each morning. Add some chia seeds before drinking it with a bit of salt. If you leave the seeds with the juice, they won’t be effective. Serve the tonic chilled.
