Lemon, the magic citrus fruit is rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C takes toxins out from the body. The citric acid in the lemon rids body of extra flab, makes skin shine, and also aids in digestion. This lemon diet is for those who want to lose pounds quickly within a week. The results may vary from person to person depending on your body type.
Anyone who sticks to it and also pulls through a tight sports program should allegedly lose within a week to a dress size!
The different varieties of lemon diet:
Eats normally, but throughout the day drink only lemon juice – pure or diluted with water.
Continue drinking several glasses of lemon juice throughout the day, but at the same time follow a special nutritional plan. Although this does not specify exactly what you should eat, but there are certain prohibitions.
So you should pay attention to the consumption of carbohydrates and do not take sweets and sugar. In addition, the consumption of milk is prohibited during this time.
The extreme variant: one drinks only lemon juice and eats nothing. The body is thus completely detoxified and you feel lighter and “cleaned”. For this purpose, the lemons are squeezed out, the liquid is diluted with water and during the day you drink 3-4 liters of it.
This variant is especially popular with Hollywood stars to quickly get rid of one or the other excess fat. We do not advise you to follow this plan unless your health is being observed by a professional on daily basis during this diet.
The 7-Day Nutrition Plan (Option B)
Drink plenty of lemon juice with water. So the digestion is stimulated and the purification is initiated. On this day you should completely do without carbohydrates and sugar. Immediately after getting up, drink a glass of lemon juice. Steamed vegetables with fish or lean meat are on the menu during the day and if you want, you can treat yourself to an orange or grapefruit with raspberries and blueberries in the evening. You should do physical activity for at least 45 minutes.
This is quite similar to day 1.
You can eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to get the metabolism going and to boost fat burning.
Attention: still no milk and carbohydrates!
On these days are protein-containing foods (eg eggs, poultry, fish, lean meat, low-fat milk, cheese, yogurt, nuts, mushrooms, legumes) on the menu. And you should try to cook with lemon juice. For example, a lemon juice salad dressing, a fruit salad with lemon juice or shrimp steamed in lemon juice.
On these two days, between 20 to 25 percent of your energy needs should be covered daily with fats. Fats slow down the transition of carbohydrates into the blood. Good fats are included in: Nuts, seeds, fatty fish, rapeseed oil or nut oil). Fats should be consumed to a limited degree, for example in dairy products, butter, and fatty meats.
There is no guarantee that the diet will work for you. Please consult a nutritionist before going ahead with the diet. We don’t want you to starve or undernourish yourself in the race to lose weight!
