Does drinking lemon juice help you lose weight?

According to proponents, you can indeed lose weight with lemon juice or following a lemon juice cure, while opponents claim that the concentration is not sufficient to lose weight. Losing weight with lemon juice is a real hype in America and has now also come to our country. Just look at the Alcachofa de Laon commercials about their slim shots and capsules. But opinions about its operation are divided. Can you lose weight with lemon juice or is it a myth? What are the arguments of proponents and opponents?

The effect of the lemon

Just like the Acai berry and the pomegranate, the lemon is also a power fruit. Antioxidants are highly present in this fruit. According to dietitians, losing weight with lemon juice is easy and safe. This way it cleanses your body and frees it from toxic waste. The low acidity of the lemon helps the stomach to disinfect and digest the food. The citric acid in particular ensures that the body is cleansed. This allows your body to process waste products faster, allowing you to lose weight.

But why don’t you see top athletes drinking these drinks? According to opponents, losing weight with lemon juice is a myth. If it’s so easy and safe, why don’t athletes fill their water bottles with water and lemon? Or better said, why doesn’t anyone see a gap in the market for lemon-based sports drinks and its benefits? The argument is given that lemon juice does have degreasing properties, but that these cannot be used to break down fat in the body.

Pros and cons of lemon juice

However, lemon juice also has other benefits that both proponents and opponents cannot ignore. Lemon is full of vitamin C. The lemon also ensures that blood sugar levels are lowered and kept constant. Lemons also contain the substance pectin. Pectin ensures that the feeling of hunger disappears and gives the feeling of being full faster. Furthermore, it also keeps your skin in balance and provides a beautiful glow.There are also disadvantages to using lemon juice for weight loss. The dentist will certainly not recommend it, because lemon can damage the enamel of your teeth and eventually break it off.


You can reduce the risk of teeth being damaged by the acid in the lemon by drinking the drink through a straw.


Despite the fact that a number of dietitians indicate that lemon juice certainly helps with weight loss, it remains a discussion between those in favor and against. You could also say ‘if it doesn’t help, it won’t hurt’ . In other words, lemon juice has more advantages than disadvantages. And the disadvantage of breaking down tooth enamel can easily be prevented by drinking the drink through a straw.There are differences of opinion about the effect of the lemon, because one says that it breaks down fats and the other says that the concentration is not enough to activate it. Opinions are also divided on whether Alcachofa de Laon capsules and slim shots work. Looking at the fact that lemon juice makes you feel full more quickly, it can certainly help you lose weight. Make sure you don’t drink too much, but do it in moderation. Squeezing half a lemon into a glass of lukewarm water per day is sufficient. Do you have doubts about the effectiveness of lemon juice? You can always try it yourself!

On the table in the summer!

In addition to the discussion about their effect, lemons are also nice and fresh in the summer! For example, it is useful, especially for large groups, to place a large jug with water, ice cubes, lemon slices and possibly other citrus fruits such as grapefruit and lime on the table. Nice and refreshing!
