Sometimes it makes sense to hit the reset button when it comes to nutrition. If you want to lose weight quickly and get your figure in bikini shape, you reduce your diet (especially fat, sugar and salt) and do significantly more exercise. So far so good. Models and actresses use a very simple method so that the pounds melt away from the stomach, waist, and bottom much faster: they drink a glass of warm lemon water after getting up in the morning. Why the freshly squeezed lemon juice is an effective diet booster and what the lemon water diet actually does.
A glass of freshly squeezed lemon water a day has a surprisingly high effect.
It is not without reason that models and fitness professionals like Josephine Skriver and Jasmine Tookes swear by the power of citrus fruits. The particularly high concentration of vitamin C not only protects the immune system, but it also stimulates collagen production, has a detoxifying effect and improves the complexion, is antioxidant, and also drives the metabolism to its absolute maximum - especially the fat metabolism. Because thanks to the high vitamin C content, the body releases significantly more serotonin and norepinephrine - hormones that stimulate the breakdown of fatty acids in adipose tissue. Effect: Fatty foods can be better utilized. The potassium contained in lemons also has a dehydrating effect.

At the same time, the sour and bitter taste, as well as the warm water, are effective appetite suppressants in themselves, plus the satiating effect of the pectin it contains. Lemon water also refreshes the organism and gives new energy - the ideal prerequisite for everyone who starts the day with morning exercise and wants to support the diet with figure-shaping workouts.
With the help of the lemon water trick, you can support a figure-conscious lifestyle, accelerate fat loss, and keep your figure and well-being permanently. To do this, squeeze a lemon immediately after getting up and stir the juice into a glass of warm water. Drink on an empty stomach and do not consume anything for at least half an hour - ideal for going for a jog. Stimulates the metabolism and ensures that smaller portions are eaten and significantly fewer calories are consumed overall.
Those who tolerate the acidic water well can increase the daily ration as desired, i.e. drink a glass of freshly squeezed lemon water in the morning, at noon, and in the evening and make a lemon water diet out of it. A little freshly cut ginger strengthens the cell-cleaning and regenerating effect and counteracts cravings. Do not eat anything for about half an hour or a full hour after the lemon water. In addition, adapt your diet to a suitable concept such as low carb, avoid white flour, sugar, salt, and fat and, above all, bring fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat, and fish to your plate. Whole grain oat flakes, nuts, and kernels are suitable as snacks, and salads should also be prepared with essential oils.
Conclusion: Lemon water brings many benefits for the body, counteracts the natural aging process, melts fat deposits, and ensures a clean, radiant complexion. Nevertheless, attention should be paid to a balanced diet and the consumption of lemon water should not be exaggerated in order to prevent deficiency symptoms and intolerance due to the high acid content. Exercise should be part of every diet.
