It really is refreshing and a lot more tasty than just plain lemon and hot water. This drink was inspired by my favourite passion fruit martini at the Mayfair Bar, London and more importantly, every ingredient is known to reduce weight loss so, even if you have a mega sweet tooth like me, you can literally pour in the honey – sans spoon – straight from the jar conscience clear!

Lemons
Known for its cleansing properties, hot lemon water quickly cleanses out toxins and eliminates waste products from the body. At less than 25 calories and a natural diuretic, drinking fresh lemon in hot water is also known to assist in weight loss. 
 
Some (including myself) feel that drinking lemon tea also suppresses the appetite.
 
Honey

Recent studies have shown that increasing the amount of honey into your diet causes the body to burn fat at an increased level, which equates to weight loss! This is because honey is thought to increase the body’s metabolism, causing you to burn more fat than usual, even when sleeping.

Honey – natures liquid sugar. Liquid gold!

Ginger

Ginger is also known to be an appetite suppressant.

Ginger is known to aid in digestion, increase energy, speeds up the metabolism and has a high fibre content. It is this combination of fat busting goodness that makes this spicy root quite magical for weight loss.

Passion Fruit

Another natural diuretic, passion fruit is also thought to aid in weight loss as it also has a high fibre content.
