Lemon Water Anyone?

     I always new lemon had a lot of health benefits but never realized it was important for weight loss.  After I researched this topic I headed over to the nearest grocery store and purchases a bag a lemons.
     Let's start by saying lemons contain vitamin C, B, riboflavin. calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, proteins and carbohydrates.  Also, it assists in wight loss.  Lemon contains vitamin C in abundance, the excessively deposited fats and carbohydrates in the body are flushed out by the vitamin C and therefore, not stored in the body.  It also influences the digestive system by increasing the metabolism rate.  The foods are digested quickly so the stored items are utilized,which results in loss of extra pounds you may have gained.
    Other then the vitamins in the lemon juice it is also a known diuretic.  Therefore, lemon water helps to flush undesirable bacteria and toxins out of the body while eliminating water weight.  in turn, it is helpful to drink lemon water throughout the day when beginning a diet because the body will always eliminate water before body fat.
