Lemon Water help Weight Loss: How It Works & When to Drink for Maximum weight loss Results 

Using lemon water help weight loss is not a new idea, but it needs to be revisited because this one simple habit can benefit you in many ways, and it is completely natural. Adding the juice of two lemons in water every day will add 100 mg. of vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and will give your body a great boost!

The Best Time to Drink Lemon Water

Nutritionists recommend drinking a glass or two of warm lemon water when you first wake up in the morning before you do anything else. Your body is naturally dehydrated after being asleep for eight hours, so drinking lemon water when you first arise allows vitamin C to move through your dehydrated system to replenish and refresh your cells. Keeping your body hydrated is an extremely efficient tip for losing weight.

How to Make Tasty Lemon Water

One whole lemon has approximately 50 mg of Vitamin C, so take one half of a lemon, and squeeze it directly into an eight-ounce glass of water. In the morning, the water should be warm, but not hot, because if you drink cold water when you first arise, it is a shock to your system. If you like, drink another glass of your delightful and refreshing glass of warm lemon water before breakfast to double the antioxidant and hydrating effects. Then, drink two more glasses throughout the day.

Here are five benefits of drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning:

  • It will hydrate your body, and assist in keeping your ph level balanced as well as helping your body to function better all day long.
  • It will give your digestive system a healthy start, encouraging proper elimination; constipation is not helpful for weight loss.
  • It fights symptoms such as bloating and puffiness.
  • It helps to eliminate belly fat.
  •  Lemon juice consists of "polyphenols," which are known to accelerate weight loss and reduce body fat.

An Extra Tip About Lemon Juice

Some studies have found that drinking any acid may affect the teeth enamel. This has not been proven, but if you are concerned about lemon juice affecting your teeth, use a stainless steel or glass straw, and brush your teeth after your healthy drink. Try adding a glass of natural warm lemon water to your morning routine for a bright wake-up call for your body, and see if weight loss doesn't become easier.
