Water is essential to good health and healthy metabolism and fat loss. But unfortunately many people battle to drink their required minimum allowance every day. But water does not have to be boring!

Use some of the following recipes to ‘liven up’ your water!

Note: Always use the fruits from your fruit allowance as prescribed on your TLC-Program  . Remember, you can still eat the flesh or pulp during the day as your fruit allowance after you have soaked the fruit to flavor the water!

How to make Naturally Flavoured Water

Required supplies:

  • fruit – whatever kind you like (from your allowance); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor.  Citrus always works well!
  • herbs – these are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit. Mint is the most obvious herb choice but basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lavender, and tarragon are all good- almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference
  • water — filtered water is preferable
  • jug or mason jar

Some ideas:

Fat Flush Water


  • 1 L (1/4 gallon) water
  • 3 wedges grapefruit (from fruit allowance)
  • ½ tangerine or mandarin , sliced
  • ¼ cucumber, sliced (optional: only if it is to be consumed at a mealtime; use from vegetable allowance)
  • 1 peppermint or mint leave
  • Ice

Rinse grapefruit, tangerine, cucumber and mint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit, and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients in a half gallon pitcher. Allow the ingredients to sit for 2 hours for maximum benefits. Drink throughout the day.

Stir & Enjoy!

Lemon Ginger Detox Drink


  • 350ml (12-ounce) glass water, at room temperature
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon (from fruit allowance)
  • 1/2 inch knob of ginger root

Add the lemon juice to the glass of water. Finely grate the ginger by using a zester, add to the glass of water. This drink is a perfect way to start your day!

All Citrus Flavored Water
(adds refreshing tartness to water)

  • Slice ½  orange, 1/2 lime, 1/2 lemon into quarters.
  • Add to jar, press and twist with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon.
  • Press enough to release some of the juices, but don’t pulverize the fruit into pieces.
  • Fill the jar with ice.
  • Pour in water to the top.
  • Stir it with the handle of a wooden spoon or a chopstick.
  • Put a lid on it, put it in the fridge, and chill.

You can drink it right away, but the flavour intensifies if it’s made an hour or two ahead. It’s even better the next day. 24 hours later straight from the fridge, the ice still hasn’t melted completely in mine. The ice at the top serves as a sieve so that you can pour the flavoured water without getting fruit bits in your glass.
