Can Lemon Water Help You To Lose Weight? 

When it comes to losing weight, a plethora of advice is available. Some of it is good advice, and other advice is just plain crazy and has none or little scientific basis. However, that does not stop many people from making some crazy claims. If you believe some weight loss guides on the Internet, anything from sipping lemon water to taking overpriced supplements will help. Sounds great, but should we not find out what really works instead of trying anything from eating frogs’ legs to drinking 2 gallons of water per day?

Many swear by lemon water and claim that lemon water has helped them to lose weight. Does it help you to lose weight? On its own, drinking lemon water is not going to help you to lose weight. It may help to speed up the digestive system and cleanse your kidneys, but it does not really help you to lose weight. However, it can help to drink more water as it makes water taste nicer. If you don’t like lemons, you can add lime instead. Both fruits have the same properties.

Can apple cider vinegar help you to lose weight? Once again, there are numerous ladies who claim that apple cider vinegar has helped them to lose pound after pound. Speaking to these ladies, it soon becomes clear that many of them have used apple cider vinegar as part of a general weight loss diet. In other words, they have eaten less and exercised more. But, has the apple cider actually made them lose weight? That is very unlikely as it is just a vinegar. 

What about weight loss supplements? If you think that a supplement will help you to lose weight, you should perhaps read the label on the bottle a bit better before you part with your hard-earned cash. The small print is always something that the weight loss industry has relied on heavily. When you read the label, it is bound to tell you that the supplement you are holding in your hand, works best when used as part of a calorie-controlled diet. That really tells you everything that you need to know about weight loss supplements – they don’t work unless you eat less.

It is back to the same old thing. If you want to lose weight and get fitter, it is important to eat right and exercise. Changing just a few of your eating habits will probably kick start your diet. Instead of eating sugary cereal for breakfast try a healthy homemade muesli instead. Make sure that you don’t add too much sugar to your coffee and watch your drinking habits. We have a habit of making weight loss too complicated. It is all about eating right by adding more fruit and vegetables to our diet and getting more active. And no, you don’t need any special supplements or force yourself to drink apple cider vinegar.
