    Lemon water and weight loss

    I've seen so many posts about lemon water and weight loss. Can you guys tell me some of the benefits of lemon water and how you benefit from it. Also, is lemon juice in a bottle just as safe to use as fresh juice from lemons? Thankz

    Hi Renee ,
    I actually add lemon to herbal tea as well as lime juice to cold water that I drink throughout the day. My personal experience is that it definitely does help curb my appetite..especially when I drink it with cold iced water.

    I think the reason some people (me included) add lemon to their water is that they don't like the taste of just water. This is my reason and the only reason I usually hear from others that do it. There is no benefits to it, it's just for taste.

    Lemon Juice (from the lemon, not from a bottle) is actually cleansing for your liver. I drink the juice of one full lemon everyday to help combat acne. I read about it on the acne board, there is a great thread started by Accutane Avenger. I tell you this because he had a lot of info on the benefits of drinking lemon juice. And whether for acne or weight loss or general health, internal cleansing is always helpful.
    Check it out!

    I only put the juice of real lemons in my water.
    I also drink apple cider vinegar (or use the cider vinegar capsules) and drink green tea. They both aid in weight loss.

    lemon hints

    Lemon is the only citrus fruit that isn't acidic. It creates an alkaline environment in your body and directly supports the liver.
    Room temperature lemons yield more juice than refrigerated.
    Since lemon juice can erode the enamel on your teeth, our dentist's hint is to rinse well with fresh water directly after drinking the diluted lemon juice. Do not brush teeth immediately afterward.
