Weight loss drink before meals.

Lose Weight by Drinking This Beverage Before Meals

It’s safe to say that many of us are constantly looking for that extra edge to help us lose a couple inches off our waistline. While the best way to lose weight is to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly, it never hurts to get a leg up on the weight loss! And this pre-lunch drink is just that.

This simple beverage only requires three simple ingredients, blended up into a frothy juice in just a few minutes. It’s a sweet, refreshing precursor to lunch that has a lot of fantastic benefits for you.

Now the main ingredient to this drink is grapefruit juice, a beverage which is packed with Vitamin C, excellent for your heart, and proven to help lower blood pressure, among other things.

It makes sense that this yummy juice would be the staple of this weight loss drink, but how realistic is it that you’ll easily be able to get 1 cup of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice? Not very.

Take it from someone who’s tried to get fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice before, it takes a lot of time and usually a couple grapefruits to get that amount. However, your typically bottled grapefruit juice is often too sugary to help in this weight loss drink.

Here’s a tip: Ocean Spray grapefruit juice is my personal favorite. The taste is still deliciously tart but the grams of sugar are all from the grapefruit itself, which makes sense because the only ingredients are grapefruit and water! I’ve found this a pretty good compromise between all that squeezing and a sugary, unhealthy juice.

The other two ingredients (which you’ll have to watch the video below to see!) are extremely simple and famously healthy for your body. All you have to do is combine these two ingredients with your grapefruit juice in a blender until it becomes a well-combined, frothy drink.

This shouldn’t take more than a minute, as the other two ingredients are always liquid in consistency (hint, hint).

Whip up this beverage before lunch and drink up before you eat any food. This will kick start your metabolism to help you burn off that food you’re about to eat, and it will also help to lower your cholesterol, improving your brain function, and give you a mid-afternoon burst of energy that most of us desperately need.

If you’re wondering how you’ll be able to make this drink every day before lunch because you’re working away from home all week, that’s easy! Mix up a big batch at the start of the week and bring one serving to work each morning. Or mix up a single serving before you leave for work — just make sure it’s safe in the office fridge.
