Cynthia Sass, the nutritionist that actually “invented” this drink, called “Sassy” in her honor, says that this magical water has amazing effect on the digestive system and significantly relieves bloating.
• 8 glasses water
• 1 tsp grated ginger root
• 1 medium-sized cucumber, peeled and cut into slices
• 1 medium-sized lemon cut into slices
• 12 fresh mint leaves and 1 tsp dried mint
Preparation and Consumption:
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, leave them overnight, and it is best if you keep the bowl in the fridge. Consume 4-5 glasses during the whole day.
You can start drinking it in the morning before your breakfast for better and instant results. You will feel like you have lost 1 pound after the first two hours.
Nutritionists say that by regular consumption of this drink and moderate physical activity, it would melt the belly fat and help you finally get that flat and sexy stomach.
People who have consumed this drink regularly say that the results they achieved are more than fantastic if you take in consider that you could lose up to 12 kilograms, of course by following a proper diet regimen as well.
This “Sassy” water is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers, nor for people having stomach problems or allergy to any of the ingredients listed!
Eat This and Lose Belly Fat!
Your morning snack attack is caused by a dip in blood sugar levels. Fiber-rich oatmeal stays in your stomach for hours, staving off a doughnut run.
Watch out: Steer clear of the sugary flavored varieties. Choose the plain stuff, and sweeten it with berries.
2. Almonds and Other Nuts
Go nuts! They slim your tummy by keeping it full. A Purdue University study showed that people who ate nuts felt full longer than those who ate rice cakes. Stick to 24 almonds a day to satisfy your hunger pangs without overloading on calories.
Watch out: Skip salted nuts; too much sodium raises blood pressure.
3. Protein Powder
It’s not just for gym rats! Protein powder contains amino acids that burn fat and build muscle. Add two teaspoons to a smoothie for a fat-busting drink. Find it at health food stores.
Watch out: Make that smoothie with fruit, yogurt, and low-fat milk — adding protein powder to a chocolate shake doesn’t make it health food (we wish).
4. Olive Oil
Everyone needs a little fat — it controls hunger. Go for monounsaturated fats like olive or canola oil. They will help keep your cholesterol under control and satisfy cravings.
Watch out: Steer clear of hydrogenated vegetable oils; they’re loaded with unhealthy trans fat.
Berries stuff a lot of filling fiber into a tiny package: Just one cup of raspberries has six grams.
Watch out: Jelly is the junk food of the fruit world. It has almost no fiber and contains added sugar.

Eat more protein.
About 25%-30% of the calories in each gram of protein are burned in digestion, compared to only 6%-8% of the calories in carbs. Do the math: You save 41 calories every time you substitute 50 grams of protein for an equal amount of carbs.
Avoid foods with “high-fructose corn syrup” in the ingredients list. Since 1971, consumption of this sugar substitute—which is used to sweeten soda, commercial baked goods, and even condiments—has increased more than 350% in the U.S., paralleling the rise in obesity.
