Even in the middle of festivities and parties, you can still actually stay on track with your diet and make sure you stay in shape by enjoying this warmer drink that only uses three easy-to-find ingredients - lemon, honey and cinnamon. You just need 1 tablespoon of each of these ingredients and mix them with hot water. Not only will these help you lose weight fast, they are also known for their wonderful and amazing health benefits.

All three ingredients, according to diet experts, also aid in digestion. Cinnamon is rich with antioxidants and is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years.

According to a study published in the journal of Preventative Medicine, those who incorporated cinnamon into their diet lost more weight compared to those who did not. Cinnamon was also said to reduce cholesterol to those who have type 2 diabetes.

The second ingredient, honey, is known to be an excellent alternative to sugar and is popular for its antibacterial properties. And lemon is also rich with vitamins that can help you healthier and increase your resistance against infections.

If you are wondering how this drink can actually make you lose weight, it's actually because its taste is a bit sweet and spicy at the same time that it can be used as a substitute to the fatty and high in sugar beverages you are supposed to be drinking.

Alissa Rumsey, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics told Women's Health magazine, said the mixture of hot water and lemon is not the reason behind the weight loss, but it can actually reduce the size of your belly by reducing bloating.
