Cucumbers:

Low in calories, diuretic, are high in dietary fiber so they help the body to be alkaline. Perfect food for weight loss.

Ginger:

A study conducted by the Institute for Human Nutrition at Columbia University showed than participants who drank a hot beverage with ginger felt fuller and had less chance of overeating.

Lemon:

Lemons are high in pectin fiber which helps suppress food cravings. Lemon also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it. When lemon juice has been fully metabolized and its minerals have been dissociated in the bloodstream, its effect is alkalizing. This means that lemon raises the pH level of body tissue (pH value above 7 is alkaline).

Mint:

You may not have thought of mint as an appetite suppressant, but it does control appetite. Not only will it give the water a refreshing flavor, but it will curb food cravings too.

Water:

We all know that water is the most important liquid for our body and that we have to drink enough water in order to hydrate, lubricate the joints and muscles and reduce food cravings. Drinking water is cheap and easy and it very important. A water enriched with vitamins and mineral is the best beverage for fat loss and staying healthy and in shape.
