Tag Archives: Tangerine

The reason I chose this one as day 6 of beverage week is because Dr Oz usually has some interesting weight loss tips and I really want to try it. When I buy everything I’ll let everyone know either here or on Facebook if it really works. BUT look at all the good stuff that is inside this drink!

  • Grapefruit, loaded with vitamin C, will help your body turn fat into fuel.
  • Tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat.
  • Cucumber helps you feel full and acts as a natural diuretic, which means less bloating and water retention.
  • Peppermint promotes better digestion and calms the stomach, plus it tastes great!

Ingredients per 8 oz serving

Water
1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves
Ice – as much as you like

Directions
Wash grapefruit, tangerine cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients (fruits, vegetables, 8 oz water, and ice) into a large pitcher. Let it sit over night. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

Stir & Enjoy!

Drink at least one 8 ounce glass three times a day before each meal for 10 days straight.
