18. Lemon Water & Cayenne Pepper Detox Drink

If a fast is what you’re looking for, this is the drink for you. Though we recommend a healthy diet as opposed to a fast, we felt this was an important drink to include.

This Lemon Water and Cayenne Pepper Detox Drink first became famous in 1976, in a book called “The Master Cleanser” and has been reintroduced in 2004 in a book called “Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days” and made famous by celebrities like Beyoncé and Jared Leto who use it to lose weight fast.

With this drink you skip all solid food for a week and only consume this drink, if you are looking for something this drastic (and you are under the care of a doctor) go ahead and try it, though a healthy diet will give you more long term results than a one week fast.

20. Aloe Water with Lime

Most of us have had an encounter with Aloe Vera, most likely due to a bad sunburn, but have you ever made your own Aloe Vera Water?

Sure you can buy Aloe Water at your local health food store, but many people are eager to DIY and make their own. This post gives clear directions (with helpful, full color photos) to making your own Aloe Water at home.

Aloe isn’t just for your skin, when consuming this succulent you are packing your body full of nutrients that naturally increase energy and fight fatigue, all while helping to increase circulation and digestion. (13, 14)

Purchase food grade aloe gel, or scrape it out of an aloe leaf. I like to cut the outer casing on one side of the leaf, then scrape the gel into a bowl.
