07 Nov 2019

Losing weight effectively and keeping it that way can be challenging. It takes regular workout sessions, a healthy diet plan, and some patience.

In case you don't know, what goes into your system before you doze off at night plays a crucial role in your weight loss plans.

Here, we list five bedtime drinks that can help you shed belly fat.

Cucumber juice


Cucumber juice is a great choice for boosting the weight loss process.

Rich in water content and considerably low on calories, cucumber juice hydrates your body and helps you stay full for long.

Additionally, cucumbers are loaded with dietary fiber, that is known to speed up metabolism, remove toxins, and fight bloating and water retention in the body.

Warm water and lemon juice


Lemon juice mixed in warm water is a popular age-old remedy for weight loss.

It is known to boost digestion and improve metabolic rate.

It is advisable to take some of this mix before going to bed, in order to ease digestion, especially after heavy meals.

Not just that, this drink is also good for cleansing liver by removing toxins and unwanted, stored fats.



Many hold the misconception that milk promotes weight gain. However, studies show otherwise.

Rich in calcium, protein, zinc, Vitamin B and other essential nutrients, milk has shown to aid weight loss.

Furthermore, milk contains proteins that increase the hunger-fighting hormone. This way, it helps you stay full for long, thereby reducing appetite and managing obesity.

Green tea


Loaded with antioxidants while being relatively low on caffeine content, Green tea can help relax the body. Plus, it can give a boost to your metabolism, thereby aiding in the process of fat burn.

Also, according to a 2017 Japanese study published in the journal Nutrients, drinking green tea at night can promote better quality sleep.

Chamomile tea


Given its miraculous anti-inflammatory and antidepressant qualities, Chamomile tea is a great pick before bedtime as it can promote better sleep quality, enhance mood, and improve overall health.

Additionally, the antioxidants in chamomile will help flush out the toxins from your body, thus reducing body weight and relieving bloating and other digestive health issues.
