Sassy Water – The Most Efficient Drink For Losing Belly Fat

sassy water

Sassy Water is an amazing, alkalizing, refreshing and fat-burning drink – named after it’s inventor, Cynthia Sass, “Sassy Water” heals the gut, soothes the digestive system, relieves bloating and ignites the body’s fat-burning furnaces.

It’s blend of ginger (for inflammation), cucumber (for water retention), lemons (for alkalinity) and mint (for digestion) is the perfect combination.

And it tastes amazing!

How to Make Sassy Water

Sassy Water Ingredients:

  • 8 300ml glasses water
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root
  • 1 medium-sized cucumber, peeled and cut into slices
  • 1 medium-sized lemon cut into slices
  • 12 fresh mint leaves and 1 tsp dried mint

Preferably the water will be alkaline & ionized, but if you don’t have access to an ionizer, please ensure you are filtering your water. There are so many known toxins in our tap water (and bottled water isn’t necessarily any better – bottled water companies have less stringent testing requirements than tap water companies!) – including chlorine, fluoride, pesticides, chemicals, disinfectant byproducts, bacteria and more (see the EWG guide here to tap water quality)

Preparation and Consumption:


In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and put them in the fridge, overnight or for at least 4 hours.

During the day, consume 4-5 300ml glasses (which is 1200-1500ml of your 3-4 litre per day goal or 40-50fl oz of your 100oz goal).

Have your first glass just like you’d normally have your lemon water – before breakfast, as soon as you wake.

According to Cynthia, people who have consumed this drink regularly say that the results they achieved are more than fantastic.

Important: This Sassy water is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers, nor for people having stomach problems or allergy to any of the ingredients listed!

    How often should you drink this and is there anything you can do with the ingredients after you have consumed the drink as it seems such a waste to throw them out? Thanks.

    DoI really have to skip breakfast, lunch and dinner for four days when drinking sassy water??

    I love your recipes! I am trying to eat/drink more alkalizing food, but I am allergic to lemon (citrus). What can I use instead of lemon, that has the same effect, to make an alkalizing drink like this. It looks so good! 🙂

    I thought that was mint was a no no. Can we have it in it’s natural form?

    • ross Reply

      No problem with mint as far as I’m concerned.

  12. Jen Larson Reply

    Sounds lovely, but please can you tell me why its not recommended for pregnant womens, or nursing mothers. Is it just the combination of ingredients thats not suitable due to the fat burning?

    • ross Reply

      Hey Jen

      An pregnant or lactating mother needs to make sure that, while getting and remaining healthy, she does not do anything that could cause her body to ‘detox’ as the toxins would enter the bloodstream. The best bet is to follow the same advice you get regarding exercise – keep doing what you were doing but don’t suddenly step your exercise UP.
