Your favorite citrus will strengthen your immune system, make your skin shiny, but also help you lose weight.
If you are on a diet, lemon can be your most valuable ally. The citrus can help in several ways:
- Pectin, which is found in lemons, can increase satiety and reduce appetite. Drink hot tea with lemon before meals to prevent overeating.
- Pectin also slows the absorption of sugar and glucose in the body, thus preventing sudden changes in blood sugar.
- Lemon is a natural diuretic, helps the body flush out excess fluid through urine.
- If you need to quickly lose a few pounds, drink diluted lemon juice. In the morning, drink a large glass of water to which you will add two tablespoons of lemon juice, a little cayenne pepper and two tablespoons of honey. The rest of the day drink half a liter of water with the addition of juice of two or three lemons. Taking this healthy beverage occasionally alleviates hunger.
