Many nutritionists and nutrition expertsconsider lemon an excellent way to get rid of excess weight. Lemon contains a large amount of citric acid, which helps to break down fats, speeds up metabolism, eliminates hunger, promotes increased secretion of gastric juice and improves digestion; pectin, regulating the level of sugar in the blood; vitamin C, which helps to strengthen immunity, which is also important in the fight against excess weight. Lemon diet is universal, it gives remarkable results, and you do not have to strictly limit the amount of food and count calories. But try to avoid foods that contain a lot of starch: cereals, potatoes, pasta, and confectionery. Fried foods should be replaced with cooked and baked products: when frying, some of the oil passes into the product and repeatedly increases its caloric content and fat content.
