Looking to jumpstart your weight loss this New Year? Try this simple drink to help flush fat and boost your metabolism. I recently saw a similar drink recipe to this on Dr. Oz (oh how I love Dr. Oz!), but I tweaked it a little to suit my own taste preferences. Each ingredient in this drink has metabolism-boosting agents that will not only help trim your waistline, but boost your energy and mood! Try to drink three to four glasses a day for optimum benefits.

Each ingredient in this drink helps boost your metabolism for a supercharged fat burning punch:

Green Tea: Green tea has thermogenic properties to help fat metabolism.

Lemons: Lemons work to slow down the rate of digestion, helping keep you full longer and keep your blood sugar levels balanced.

Ginger: According to, ginger can speed up metabolism by almost 20 percent!

Grapefruit: Full of vitamin C, grapefruits will help reduce insulin levels, which will help prevent overeating and aid in fat burning.

Mint: Mint helps to promote digestion, which can help ward off extra pounds.
