The benefits of Water
You always hear "drink 8 glasses of water for good results," but do you ever drink 8
glasses? Most people don't, even though they know they should. Water alone
provides your body with useful weight loss benefits.
As you know, your kidneys are responsible for getting rid of wastes through your
urine. If at anytime you don't have enough water in your body, your body will enter
"survival mode," where it will conserve as much water as possible. When it does this,
it will hold back your urine and wastes too. When enough waste builds up in your
system, your liver will start helping your kidneys get rid of waste. If your liver has to
help out with other tasks, then it won't be doing its main tasks as effectively. - And
what are the liver's main tasks? Using up your stored body fat as energy. So it's
important that your liver is functioning 100% to get rid of your body fat instead of
helping to get rid of wastes.
Water with Lemon for Weight Loss!
So how does the combination of water with lemon for weight loss work well? Well
there's one more good thing about lemons (as well as other citrus fruits). They have
a pure concentrated form of citric acid. Due to citric acid's high acidity and ph, it's
able to break down your fat molecules. When something in your body is broken
down, it goes back into the digestive system and is discarded as waste. Now you can
see where water plays a role... the water from the lemon juice will help keep you
hydrated so that you can properly get rid of your fat molecules once and for all.
So in short, lemon helps break down some fat, and then water keeps your body
functioning so that it can be properly discarded. Sounds easy, right?
Water with lemon for weight loss will definitely help you out in a weight loss program.
You should drink at least 8 glasses per day to keep your body hydrated so that it can
properly function, while having some lemons in your drinks to help out. Try to not
have too many lemons per day, or else your mouth/teeth/gum may start feeling
And one more thing - don't make your weight loss program rely 100% on just
drinking lots of water with lemon. Remember that weight loss includes two important
aspects - dieting and exercising. Water and lemon is going to be part of your diet, but
remember that you still must eat healthy and exercise often to see any weight loss
