The diet is purely based on drinking lemon water every day for 2 weeks. At the end of the two weeks you are expected to lose up to 20 pounds. I have not tried this though I am very much tempted to give it a shot. I have some concerns about this diet because of too much consumption of lemon juice that might not be good for every one. I have heard of taking lemon water every day by squeezing half lemon in one cup of warm water. However this diet requires to drink much more than just one lemon and one glass of water.
Lemon water is used to improve digestive system as Citrus flavonoids found in lemon are good digestive tonic. Citrus flavonoids also help to suppress appetite. In other words lemon water act as digestive aid that also has abilities to suppress appetite. You body will digest the food better and at the same time lemon water helps to eat less which can lead to weight loss.
The following is the lemon water diet that may help you to shed up to 20 pounds of body fat in 14 days.
First day – juice of 1 lemon and 1 cup water
Second day – 2 lemons and 2 cups water
Third Day – 3 lemons and 3 cups water
Fourth day – 4 lemons 4 cups water
Fifth day – 5 lemons and 5 cups water
Sixth day – 6 lemons and 6 cups water
Seventh day – 3 lemons and 10 cups water mixed with a teaspoon of honey and drink during the whole day
Eighth day – 6 lemons and 6 cups water
Ninth day – 5 lemons and 5 cups water
At the 10th day start reducing the amount of one lemon and a glass of water, to the 13th day when again re-take the juice of 1 lemon and 1 cup water.
Meaning: At the 11th day take 4 lemons and 4 cups of water. At the 12th day take 3 lemons and 3 cups of water. At the 13th day take 1 lemon and 1 cup of water.
14th day – juice of 3 lemons and 10 cups of water and a teaspoon of honey and drink before breakfast as possible, and the rest during the day.
As I mentioned earlier, I have not tried it yet so it is not possible to say that if actually works. I would appreciate if you decide to try this diet then share your experience with us. Also it is important to consult with your health care provider before starting this or any other diet program for weight loss because every diet may not be suitable for you.
