We all know how hard losing weight and burning fat is. Exercising and eating healthy is the key. You need a lot of discipline. However, these drinks can help you get closer to your fat loss goal.

1.  Ice Cold Water

When you drink chilled water, your body needs to heat it up to your body temperature. The body needs to expend calories in order to do so. Your body can burn up to 100 calories a day more than if you drink room temperature water. You can lose up to 1 lb a month just by drinking ice cold water.

2.  Water with Honey and Lemon in the Morning

There are numerous benefits of drinking warm water with honey and lemon first thing in the morning. One of these benefits is that it boosts metabolism and speeds up your fat loss. It also aids in digestion.

3.  Green Tea

Green Tea contains caffeine which increases your metabolism. It also contains antioxidants called catechins that help you cut belly fat. Green Tea is also a diuretic which can help you flush out toxins from your body. Drinking green tea before exercising can speed up your fat loss. Drink 2-3 cups a day for best results.

4.  Black Coffee

Black coffee also contains caffeine and almost zero calories. It is also known to suppress your hunger and helps you with your fat loss goals. Black coffee is an excellent pre workout drink and can help you work out longer and with more intensity. Limit intake to 1-2 cups a day for best results.

5.  Non-fat Milk

Milk contains calcium and vitamin D which help you in losing weight. Calcium can suppress calcitriol, which is a hormone known to make you fat. Non-fat milk has less calories than reduced-fat or whole milk. It also keeps you fuller longer so you are less likely to binge on other snacks.

6.  Vegetable Juice

Any fat loss diet has to include a staple of vegetables. Drinking vegetable juice is more beneficial than consuming raw vegetables when trying to lose weight, as the body can digest it more easily. Drinking vegetable juice can speed up your metabolism and cleanse your body. Drinking vegetable juice before a meal can also make you intake fewer calories overall.

7.  Whey Protein

When on a fat loss diet, whey protein helps you maintain lean muscle mass. It also suppresses hunger and studies show that you consume less food when whey is taken 90 minutes before a meal. Whey protein also helps you regulate your blood glucose levels, causing your body to store less fat.

8.  Yogurt Smoothie

Just like milk, yogurt is rich in calcium which can help you lose weight. Adding whey protein and fruits to a yogurt smoothie can create a drink rich in nutrients which will help keep you full and maximize fat loss.
