Most people consider that lemon water helps in weight loss by increasing fat burning in the body! So how accurate is this information from a scientific point of view? And what are the benefits and negative effects?
WATER AND WEIGHT LOSS
Drinking water is naturally considered very useful in weight loss because it is an indispensable element in the process of burning fat in the body. According to a study published in 2010 in “OBESITY“, regularly drinking two cups of water before each meal contributes to weight loss among the participants. He explained that water helps fill the stomach and increases the feeling of satiety. In another study published in the same review in 2008, he stated that drinking water can help increase the rate of fat burning.
LEMON AND WEIGHT LOSS
In this sense most studies have shown that eating citrus fruits and lemon especially has already contributed to promoting metabolic processes in the body or preventing the accumulation of fat and works as an antiseptic for the body. According to a 2008 study published in the journal “CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY AND NUTRITION“, the polyphenols present in the lemon bark help to stimulate the liver to burn fat and prevent the accumulation of fat in the body and thus prevent the gain of weight.
In addition to that, in a report published by the American College of Nutrition in 2005, eating adequate amounts of vitamin C helps increase fat burning rates.
We must not forget that the fiber found in lemons, like pectin, contribute significantly to controlling the appetite and increase the feeling of satiety. Also lemon improves digestive health and preserves against constipation and intestinal cramps.
