lemon water

Friday, August 10, 2012

The past month, I got in the habit of drinking lemon water. My friend told me about it awhile back, and then recently, my cousin reiterated the idea that lemon water helps with weight loss.

I’m petite so I look like I don’t really have any pounds to lose. However, I couldn’t fit comfortably on any of my clothes and my sunglasses were touching my cheeks.

My friend suggested a whole lemon’s juice added in a glass of water every morning. I couldn’t handle the acidity so I modified it to have 2 slices of lemon in a 16oz glass of water.  I noticed that I was drinking at least 6 glasses of lemon-water a day. (It actually stopped my diet-coke cravings!)

It’s been 4 weeks and for the first time in my 48 years, I was confident wearing a 2 piece swim suit. I lost the 7 pounds that I had been trying to lose for the past 2 years!

So I surfed the net and found out that:
1)     Lemon water helps speed up weight loss. Since the combination of lemon and water is made up of natural ingredients, lemon water, therefore, is a healthy drink. No calories. No artificial flavoring.
2)     Lemon water acts as a natural cleansing agent. Lemon water helps with your digestive system. Therefore, you’re getting clean from the inside!
3)     Lemon water has a natural way of reducing your hunger cravings.

So between cleaning out your digestive system and reducing your cravings – such combination helped me in losing weight.
