Whether it was on a health blog or in a magazine, chances are that you have seen somebody claim that lemon juice is the answer to all your summer-body wishes. The truth behind the matter is that there is not enough scientific evidence to support claims like lemon juice’s ability to “melt fat away” or “regulate sugar absorption”.
However, lemon juice does have some great benefits that could come in handy when you are trying to lose weight. Some of the dietary benefits of lemon juice include:
Low Calorie Flavoring to Food:
If you are watching what you eat, you know that every calorie counts. Instead of using high-calorie sauces, use lemon juice to add flavor to things like fish, chicken, veggies, salad, and even red meat. The juice from an average lemon only contains 11 calories!
The Lemon Juice Weight Loss Drink:
Whilst lemon juice itself may not necessarily make you lose weight, we do know of something that does help for weight loss – water. Water is a big part of any diet, as it can help you make fuller when you drink it before meals, as well as keeping your body hydrated and functioning properly throughout the day.
Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to your water to make it taste more like a drink instead of plain old water.
Vitamin C for Your Workout:
Studies have suggested there to be a link between vitamin C and fighting fatigue. Since lemon juice contains decent amounts of vitamin C, including it into your diet can help you get that extra bit of energy and help you get through your workout.
Thus, for the best chance of successful weight loss, you should:
- Follow a sensible diet. Download the free Manna Diet eBook and for a healthy diet, which includes lemon drinks.
- Exercise (at least 45 minutes per day).
- Sleep a minimum of 7 hours per night.
