A squeeze of lemon in hot water is often considered as the first step when trying to target excess fat. Some even consider it a silver bullet to lose weight. But is there any scientific data to back this concoction or is it just a myth? Let’s find out:
Experts say you shout begin your day with a cup of coffee or tea, particularly on empty stomach because it may increase acid level in the stomach which can cause bloating and digestive issues. Also, coffee on empty stomach increases cortisol (stress hormone) and an elevated cortisol level is not good news for your weight loss goals. Ideally, you should postpone having coffee/tea for an hour after waking up. In such a situation, drinking a full glass of warm water with a squeeze of lemon will hydrate the body and boost metabolism as well.
Lemon when mixed with water flushes out toxins and it’s a low-calorie drink to kickstart your day, and detoxify the body.
You can add mint, cucumber, ginger for added benefits. But remember to avoid adding honey because it will spike up the calorie count.
There’s no doubt there are multiple benefits of drinking lemon water every day, particularly morning, but only a calorie deficit through diet and exercise will melt away extra pounds. Drinking hot lemon water hardly has an impact without a calorie deficit diet and consistent exercise routine in place.
