You all now know the potential of water and lemon. It is a purifying and detoxifying natural remedy which, in the context of a correct and balanced diet, can also promote weight loss. This is especially true if it is enriched with some extra ingredients!
Nature provides us with many natural products that act as fat burners, activate metabolism, regulate blood sugars, keep hunger at bay, stimulate diuresis, etc. All of these ingredients are particularly useful for those looking to lose weight. By themselves they are obviously not miraculous but they can be that extra help that makes the difference.
Drinking lemon water alone can stimulate weight loss but to make your morning drink even more active you can try replacing it with one of these variations:
Lemon water with ginger
Water, lemon and ginger is a drink with great detoxifying power, stimulating digestion and anti-nausea. Losing weight with ginger is possible as this rhizome accelerates the metabolism, promotes the elimination of fats, aids digestion, deflates the belly and in addition keeps the sense of hunger at bay. So prepare a ginger tea and add a little fresh lemon juice, or add a piece of fresh grated ginger to the classic lemon water.
Lemon water with turmeric and pepper
Turmeric and pepper can also be added to water and lemon to have an effect on the metabolism, better keep the sense of hunger at bay and act on fats. To the classic drink add a quarter of a teaspoon of turmeric (for each cup of water) and a pinch of pepper.
Lemon water with cinnamon
Cinnamon is a fat-burning spice that not only helps you lose weight but also regulates blood sugar levels. It may therefore be a good idea to enrich your morning water and lemon with a teaspoon of cinnamon. Also in this case it is recommended to drink it as soon as you wake up.
Lemon water with parsley
Parsley can also help you lose weight thanks to its active ingredients that aid digestion and promote the drainage of liquids. It can be added a few pureed parsley leaves together with water and lemon to enrich the drink or simply chop the aromatic herb and add it to your cup. You should drink for 5 days before stopping and let at least 10 days pass before resuming (if needed).
Lemon water with cayenne pepper and maple syrup
From the lemon diet conceived by Dr. Martine Andrè comes a variant of water and lemon that you should drink, as part of this diet, as soon as you wake up, during mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks but even shortly before going to sleep. You need 30 cl of water, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Water and lemon with chia seeds
Have you ever thought about adding seeds to your lemon water? Particularly suitable are those of chia. The drink thus enriched not only promotes purification and weight loss thanks to the fact of keeping hunger but it can be considered a sort of natural supplement (chia seeds are in fact very rich in nutrients). So try adding a tablespoon of chia seeds to a cup of water and let them act for about an hour before squeezing the lemon and drinking it all.
Water and lemon with linseed
Flax seeds can also enrich the simple lemon water drink. In fact, they help digestion, help lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol as well as have a laxative effect. The procedure to prepare it is the same as that with the addition of chia seeds.
Water and lemon with cucumber
To water and lemon you can add a few slices of cucumber as it is or a little extract of this vegetable with a strong diuretic and purifying power. It will also help you to keep the feeling of hunger at bay.
Water and lemon with bicarbonate
Lemon water with added baking soda is one alkalizing drink, digestive, purifying and remineralizing on which there is also much discussion regarding the possible anti-cancer effects. To prepare it you need half a liter of water, the juice of 3 lemons and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. You can drink it on an empty stomach early in the morning or during the day but away from meals. However, remember that baking soda is a salt and as such it is best not to abuse them. For example, someone with high blood pressure should not take this remedy.
Water, lemon and green tea
If you are looking for a drink based on water and lemon to drink throughout the day, you can choose the variant with green tea. The leaves of this plant have shown many benefits, including that of promoting weight loss. So prepare your lukewarm lemon water and soak a green tea bag together for a few minutes before drinking. The alternative is to prepare the drink in a 1 and a half liter glass bottle to be able to sip it whenever you like during the day, it will also contribute to keep the feeling of hunger at bay.
These variants of water and lemon they are not always suitable for everyone. Especially if you intend to take them for a long time, always ask your doctor for advice and, if you need to lose weight, contact an expert who will evaluate the most suitable systems with you.
