The Lemon Diet

Besides being a citrus fruit rich in vitamin C, lemons have huge slimming properties. That is why they are used for this diet that can be very effective.

Thanks to the “lemon diet”, you can lose weight very quickly. But, you have to keep in mind that this is a very strict diet, which is why they recommend only doing it for five days. If you don’t follow this recommendation, it can cause some problems.

The properties of lemon, especially the slimming properties, are very well-known and valued. Similarly, it is an excellent detoxifier and natural inflammation reducer.

The “Lemon Diet”

Lemons are the food that you should eat the most while you are on this diet (for obvious reasons), although you can also eat vegetables, fruit, and meat, incorporating them slowly.

You can do the “lemon diet” two times a year in order to slim down or simply to cleanse your body from a lot of toxins that accumulate mainly because of eating bad foods.
