If you want to lose weight fast but find that exercise is not easy to come by, cleaning up your diet can be an effective alternative. Eating too many calories can lead to unhealthy accumulations of body fat. If you aren’t very active during the day, your diet will be a key factor in how much weight you can lose. Simple portion control and making healthy food choices can be enough to help you lose weight in a short amount of time. These foods and drinks are low in calories and contain nutrients that help you build muscle and promote healthy digestion — both of which can help you lose weight more quickly.

Black tea

Black tea can warm up your stomach and uterus, and increase your metabolic rate. It helps break down the excess fat you ingest, and helps remove it. Women who like to eat meat, especially those with high blood cholesterol, should drink more black tea.

Rose tea

Drinking rose tea can lower blood cholesterol, remove excess water from your body, and improve your metabolic rate. Rose tea is very helpful when it comes to losing weight.

Cucumbers

Cucumbers contain very few calories. They are rich in pectin and fiber, which can help lower cholesterol, stimulate bowel movement, and prevent constipation. Additionally, the tartronic acid within the cucumbers can prevent carbohydrates from turning into fat.
