Scientists have proved that citric acid is able to bind and neutralize fats, contributes to the loss of excess kilograms, so the lemon diet has become one of the most popular among many women.
A classic version of the lemon diet was developed by an American nutritionist, Professor Chong. Its essence is as follows: the juice of one lemon is diluted in a glass of cold water, then the resulting solution must be drunk daily on an empty stomach in the morning and in the evening, before going to bed. The number of lemons is increasing every day. The diet is designed for two weeks. The main food is breakfast, lunch and dinner, as usual, without changing your usual diet. Weight loss is due to the fact that the lemon neutralizes a significant amount of fat and they are not digested in the gastrointestinal tract.
This lemon diet is loved for the fact that it does not have strict restrictions on nutrition: whatever you want, then eat! However, do not rush into it immediately to sit down: this "lemon beauty" will require sacrifices from your health ...
This variant of the lemon diet can be dangerous for your body. It is strictly contraindicated to people with gastritis, stomach ulcers, with increased acidity, pancreatitis, as well as other gastrointestinal diseases. Even if you have a very strong stomach, after applying the classical lemon diet you are guaranteed an easy gastritis. There are lighter, sparing versions of the lemon diet that help not only lose excess pounds, but also increase immunity, strengthen health.
Gentle lemon diet is suitable for almost all healthy people who have no problems with the gastrointestinal tract.
One lemon cut into thin slices, pour a liter of hot water. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey, let cool. Honey protects the mucous membrane of the stomach, heals, softens the effect of citric acid.

To get the desired result, try to refrain from eating flour products, do not get involved in fatty foods, do not overeat, play sports.
