Although we have coffee, many types of tea, and water available at the office, my colleague always brings her drink. She claims it has significantly improved her figure due to its benefits. It’s great support for a weight loss diet.

One of the basic principles of a weight loss diet is to drink a lot. Staying well-hydrated improves metabolism and overall body function. Nutritionists recommend water first and foremost, but other drinks can also facilitate weight loss.

Not just water

While we emphasize drinking water during weight loss, we can also support ourselves with teas and herbs. Juices are generally not recommended since ready-made ones often contain a lot of sugar. However, one juice has few calories, hydrates well, and can be recommended as support when we want to lose a few pounds quickly.

Forget about hunger

It's birch sap, which can be consumed daily when fighting against extra pounds. It is low in calories but rich in vitamins and minerals. Significantly, it can also suppress appetite. Chlorogenic acid in birch sap stimulates fat metabolism, making us feel full longer and less likely to snack between meals. Additionally, birch sap contains enzymes that speed up digestion, and drinking it helps remove toxins and waste products from the body more efficiently, significantly aiding in weight loss. Compared to fruit and even fruit-vegetable juices, birch sap is a much better choice during a weight loss regimen.

Characteristic taste

Birch sap has a specific taste. To slightly reduce its distinctiveness, you can add it to vegetable-fruit cocktails, protein smoothies, or lemonades. This drink also works well in oatmeal or mixtures with chia seeds and flaxseed. Birch sap, known as birch water, is now available in most large stores. It’s worth choosing versions without added sweeteners.
