Detoxification is always a great solution for women who want to lose weight. However, if you start low-calorie fasting, your body can starve and your metabolism will slow down because of the important nutrients lost. So, in order to avoid depriving your body of nutrients, you need to add lemon water to your diet plan.

Why should you drink lemon water? Lemon is a great fruit, because it’s low in calories and rich in vitamins. Also, you should know that exercise can certainly help you lose weight, but it doesn’t do much good if you’re eating more calories than you’re burning. So, you need to combine your exercise with a healthy diet to achieve perfect results. What’s more, a 14-day lemon water challenge will help you speed up the process of losing weight.

A glass of lemon water at different times of the day may help you lose weight and stay healthy by boosting your metabolism. All you need is 14 days, and you’ll become the owner of a perfect body. You should take a pause for several days, and then you can continue the challenge for another 14 days.

Side Effects Of Lemon Water Consumption

No matter how beneficial lemon water can be for your body, you need to consider its side effects when deciding whether you should start following this 14-day lemon water challenge to lose weight. One of the main negative effects of long-term consumption of lemon water is tooth enamel erosion, which leads to cavities. Such an effect occurs because of the high acidic content in lemons. To reduce the risk of enamel erosion, try to drink your lemon water through the straw and rinse your mouth with plain water afterward.

Citric acid can also be the reason for heartburn in some people. Others, however, experience relief from heartburn after drinking lemon water, since lemon juice becomes alkaline, reducing acidity in digestion.

Some people visit the bathroom more frequently after drinking lemon water. However, there is no evidence that vitamin C from lemons has diuretic effects (1).
