Green tea is an excellent drink for fat burning! If your goal is overall weight loss and fat loss, this is the drink for you. Green tea contains Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a type of catechins that increases fat breakdown. They release the fat from your fat cells and boost your liver’s fat-burning powers. Green tea also contains caffeine which works in synergy with EGCG to boost the fat breakdown process.
Banish inflammation and make your metabolic rate rise with cinnamon. This natural spice helps you metabolize sugar that would otherwise turn into fat. Adding honey and water to it will help you feel full since raw organic honey has its own incredible benefits.
Among them, it reduces blood sugar levels and regulates weight. Just make sure you’re using real honey, not the stuff that typically comes in the shape of a honey bear on your supermarket shelf.
Warm Apple Cider Vinegar Water
Similar to the suggestion above for weight loss, adding apple cider vinegar into warm water is said to help keep digestion healthy all day. If you drink this in the morning, it gives your stomach balance in pH which can help your tummy flatten down in time.

Soothing peppermint helps calm the mind and relieve stress. Since stress can lead to excess fat, especially in the midsection, it’s little surprise that peppermint tea is a great drink for fat burning.
Not only that, but it also helps you digest your food better and relieves bloating. When food isn’t digested properly, it can lead to more fat stored away. Finishing a meal with peppermint tea can help your body process the fat and help you slim down accordingly.
While it might not be as appealing as peppermint tea, celery juice offers the same fat busting relief. It relieves bloating and serves as a natural diuretic. That means it keeps water retention away to stop belly fat and bloating from making you feel uncomfortable in your own body.
If you want to add more flavor to celery juice and give yourself more of a lead on your weight loss and fat loss efforts, add ginger root to it.
It takes hard work to burn off fat, so if you really want to wave goodbye to that extra bit around your middle, make sure you sweat it off. One of the biggest mistakes people make with fat loss is drinking those sports drinks. Sports drinks tend to have lots of sugar and calories.
They’re only ideal if you’re exercising for over an hour in the heat and sweating away everything you’ve got. That’s why coconut water offers a better solution in that it hydrates and helps restore your electrolytes, all naturally.
Coconut water has an interesting taste to it, which you may or may not enjoy. For similar benefits to hydrate during intense workouts or to replenish right afterward, you may prefer watermelon water instead.
Watermelon has an amino acid called L-citrulline which helps get the lactic acid out of your muscles to keep you from feeling fatigued and in pain. Simply blending fresh, seedless watermelon with water in your blender will give you this naturally nutritious fat-burning drink.
When it comes to weight loss and fat loss, there is one drink that works equally as well. Even if you choose to try out all the drinks on this list, water is undeniably the absolute best “potion” for slimming down.
Fat burning can be frustrating if there’s a lacking of proper diet and exercise. These fat-burning drinks alone will not cut off your fat. But when you pair them right with your exercise and diet, these will help boost your fat loss.
