The Truth About the Lemon Water Detox

The Truth About the Lemon Water Detox: Side Effects & Weight Loss Benefits

Lemon water detox is one of the most popular health supplements nowadays. You may have heard about it before from your friends or family members.

But what exactly are these “side effects” that some people experience after taking lemon water? What are they really doing to them? How many grams of sugar do you need to consume every day just so you don’t get sick?

Let’s take a look at some of the facts about lemon water detox.

1) Lemon Water Detox Side Effects Are Not Real

When you think about it, there is no way that lemon water could cause any negative side effects. There are two main reasons why people might experience such symptoms after drinking lemon water:

1) They’re not drinking enough water (or 2) Their body isn’t absorbing all the nutrients in the lemon juice.

In other words, if you’re consuming enough fruits and vegetables, you shouldn’t experience any adverse effects from drinking lemon water. If anything, you’ll probably feel better than usual.

2) Lemon Water Detox Has No Effect On Your Body At All!

As far as we know, lemon water doesn’t contain any harmful substances like caffeine or alcohol. You won’t stain your teeth or get sunburned by drinking it, either.

In fact, it’s not even meant to have any kind of effect on your body.

Lemon water is an excellent source of hydration, but it doesn’t provide any other nutrients for you to consume. In other words, you might as well be drinking plain water!

3) Too Much Of A Good Thing.

..

Lemons are high in certain nutrients (vitamin C, potassium, etc), but too much of a good thing can be dangerous. For example, if you take too many multivitamins, you might actually hurt yourself.

Same goes for drinking too much water… or lemon water!

If you drink too much water, your body will expel the excess through your urine. This results in more trips to the bathroom, but it’s perfectly safe.

Too much lemon water can also make your pee/pee more yellow, which is apparently a sign of dehydration. This isn’t actually the case, though; too much lemon water doesn’t dry you out.

It’s just excess vitamins passing through your body.

4)

Does It Really Work?

Perhaps you’re thinking, “If I drink more water, doesn’t that make me healthier?”

Well… not really.

The idea behind lemon water is that you’re “flushing” your system and getting it back to a healthier state. In reality, your body does a fine job of doing this naturally.

If you want to re-hydrate after a night of drinking alcohol, then sure; drink some water! Otherwise, plain water will do just fine.

Lemon water doesn’t really do anything for you except add flavor. It’s essentially just a weaker version of vitamin water.

If you need your water to taste better, try adding some oranges or limes instead!

5) The True Side Effects Of Lemon Water

The only side effects that you should expect from drinking lemon water are: 1) More trips to the bathroom and 2) A slightly more yellow color in your pee.

That’s it! You’re not going to experience any other adverse effects from drinking lemon water.

In fact, if you drink enough of it, you’re probably not even going to experience the good effects either!

As far as weight loss goes, if anything, drinking more water will cause you to gain weight! This is because your body will begin to experience a state of “water weight” and prevent the loss of muscle mass.

So in reality, the lemon water weight loss benefits are over-hyped and non-existent.

6)

What’s The Main Point?

The main point here is that lemon water is not a magical solution to your body’s health and weight problems. It’s meant to make your water taste better and nothing else. So if you like the taste, go for it! But don’t expect any other benefits.

If you’re looking for a quick fix and you’re already drinking water, then…

well I’m not quite sure what to tell you. Drinking more water won’t magically make you lose weight. In fact, it could have the opposite effect if you drink too much!

If you aren’t drinking enough water in the first place, this is definitely going to harm your body. Not drinking enough water can lead to muscle cramps, dizziness, and headaches.

Not to mention it’s essential for basic bodily functions. So if you’re thirsty, drink up!

The best way to lose weight is still the old fashioned way: burning more calories than you consume. As long as you’re doing that, you’ll be fine.

Otherwise, there are plenty of ways to speed up your weight loss without any special “weight loss teas” or pills. If you’re interested in learning about these methods, take a look at this article.

How To Lose 10 Pounds In 2 Weeks

Hey guys, Tom here. In this video, I’m going to be showing you how to lose ten pounds in two weeks.

Now before you start rolling your eyes and get skeptical about this claim, hear me out. There’s more to it than just starving yourself and pounding endless amount of water like most “quick fix” solutions would tell you.

In fact, this solution is all about maintaining proper nutrition and steadily burning calories. And before any ladies throw a fit, this method can very well apply to you as well.

It’s not just a theory either. This is an idea I have put to practice on myself roughly three months ago and the results are pretty great.

In fact, I plan on continuing this practice until I reach my desired weight.

In this video, I’m going to give you four steps that will help you lose ten pounds in two weeks. Now remember, don’t start doing something if it doesn’t feel right.

If you have any concerns, questions, or want to know more, leave it in the comment section below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

So here we go, step one: preparation.

As with most things, preparation is of vital importance when it comes to losing weight.

If you were going on a trip, would you get on a plane without checking if it was safe to fly?

Of course not! You’re going to go online and research the brand, its safety records, and what others have to say before getting on board. That’s exactly what we’re going to do here, except for diets.

We want to pick a diet that fits your lifestyle. We all have different diets and cultures and one diet plan isn’t fit for all.

So what I’m going to do here is give you a small list of diets that I’ve come across, tried, and researched thoroughly. We’re going to pick one that fits you and your lifestyle the most.

Now, let’s begin.

The first diet is called the 3-Day Military Diet. This diet plan includes three-day cycles called phases.

You begin a cycle by eating relatively normal food for three days, the “load” phase. Then, for three days you up the caloric intake to an extreme level while eating foods that are similar to military rations, hence the name, the “overload” phase. The last three days are the “attacking” phase where you eat fewer calories than you burned during the overload phase.

This diet claims to help you lose 10lbs in three days. Now, personally, I haven’t seen any evidence that this diet actually works but it looks like a fun challenge and might be worth a try.

As always though, do your research before trying anything. You wouldn’t want to end up eating something with mold in it because the guy on eBay mislabelled the item.

So once again, research, research, research!

The next diet is called the 3-Day Shakes Diet. It’s a bit like the 3-Day Military Diet but instead of normal food, it includes protein shakes.

The diet plan has you begin by drinking a few protein shakes a day for three days, then drinking more shakes but adding a few light meals until you finish with just shakes for one day, the “attack” phase. This diet is said to help you lose 11lbs in three days.

Now, I’m more inclined to believe this one than the 3-day Military Diet simply because it involves nothing but food, and shakes at that. Shakes are easy to digest and should pass through your system pretty quickly so there’s less of a chance of developing a stomachache or some other type of disorder.

The third diet is called the Cabbage Soup Diet. This one involves eating normal food but in smaller quantities and only cabbage soup for sustenance.

Now, some of you may be turned off by the idea of only eating cabbage soup for a week but there are other types of soup that you can eat like tomato and mushroom. The diet has three phases: the loading phase, the restriction phase, and the attacking phase. In the loading phase you eat normal food but in smaller quantities. In the restriction phase you only consume the soup for sustenance and in the attacking phase you eat whatever you want while trying to keep your calories in check. The goal is to lose 10lbs during this diet.

Personally, I don’t like this diet. Not because of the cabbage soup itself (which I’m not a fan off) but because it promotes eating nothing but soup for a week.

I understand the whole calories in vs calories out and that soup has a low-cal count but eating nothing but soup can’t be too good for you. It’s probably not going to kill you if you stick to the diet and don’t go overboard but I don’t see the point of putting your body through that torture just to lose a little bit of weight in a short period of time. It’s not worth it in my opinion.

The fourth diet is called the Grapefruit Diet. This one is actually a pretty old diet, its origins can be traced back to the 1920s.

This diet has you eating normal food but in reduced quantities. Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal and should always include half a grapefruit. Lunch should be small as well and dinner can be a normal sized meal. During the weekends you’re allowed to eat whatever you want but you must consume the half a grapefruit at each meal. The diet has three phases: the strict phase, the modified phase, and the lenient phase. During the strict phase you eat only specific foods and only in small quantities. During the modified phase you’re allowed to eat whatever you want but only at meal times. Finally, during the lenient phase you can eat whatever you want but only in small quantities.

This one is a lot better than the Cabbage Soup Diet but it still has its flaws. Again, it has you eating half a grapefruit with each meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Now, I’m not a nutritionist but even I know that having only half a grapefruit with each meal isn’t exactly enough to sustain you. I mean, it’s probably better than eating nothing at all but that doesn’t make up for the negative points that this diet has. Like I said, some nutrition is better than none but there are much better diets out there.

The final diet is called the Dukan Diet. It’s a relatively new diet, only dating back to the 2000s.

This one is based on eating foods in a certain order and you can eat as much as you want as long as you follow the rules. The rules for this diet are pretty easy. For the first phase you can eat unlimited eggs, meat, and vegetables. During the second phase you can eat unlimited seafood, meat, and vegetables. During the third phase you can eat unlimited fruits, hard cheese, and vegetables. Finally, during the fourth and last phase you can eat unlimited soft cheese, bread, milk, and yogurt.

This one is actually fairly balanced diet. It allows you to eat a wide variety of food while staying away from fad diets that promote eating nothing but some sort of magical fruit or bean.

You’re allowed to eat as much as you want but you have to follow the rules for the diet if you want it to work out for you.

While I would choose the Dukan Diet if I were going to go with any of these diets, I’m not going to do any of them. As much as I like eating and stuffing my fat face with food, I don’t think any diet is worth it if it limits what you can and can’t eat.

If I want to eat something then I’m going to eat it no matter what stupid diet I might be on. Besides, I’m not trying to lose any weight. I’m at my ideal weight as it is.

The second meeting is more of a business meeting rather than a diet meeting. It’s being hosted by S.

Head and she’s calling everyone to the auditorium so that she can explain this years new rules for the festival. You remember last year; there were a few problems with some of the games. Nothing serious like cheating but more in the area of some of the contestants not following the rules exactly. This caused problems with other audience members who were upset that the players weren’t following the rules and thus didn’t win due to these cheaters.

This of course led to complaints and in turn a lot of wasted time having to listen to the audience bitching while the real winners were picked. S.

Head got fed up so she came up with a new rule. Anyone found cheating in any of the games is instantly disqualified and will be dragged off to the detention area, presumably forever. This resulted in everyone else following the rules exactly which led to a much quicker and thus successful festival.

You’re not worried about yourself since you don’t intend on cheating, but you are a little concerned for Gerald. You sit with him during the meeting while S.

Head goes over all the rules once again. You’re a little worried that Gerald’s nervousness is going to get him in trouble as he keeps fidgeting and scratching at his arms and chest.

In fact, you’re so concerned with this, that you’re not really listening to what S. Head is saying until she mentions your name.

“And since I’m sure none of you want to be sitting around for the next few hours while we wait for the results of the winner, we’re going to implement another change this year. We’re going to streamline the whole process.

Now, every time you play a game, the winner gets an entry card. When you get five of these entry cards, come see me and you’ll get your prize.”

S. Head then stops talking and starts handing out cards to everyone.

When she gets to you, you notice that the card has already been labeled with your name on it. S. Head then puts the big box of cards she was carrying down on a table and leaves the auditorium.

You look over at Gerald who is scratching at his arms so much that you’re genuinely surprised that he doesn’t draw blood. He’s got at least eight entry cards in his hand.

You try to think positively and tell yourself that there’s nothing wrong with having too many entry cards. You then remember that you’re supposed to be thinking of something sad when you go into the room with the magic mirror.

You try to think of your family but it just doesn’t seem very depressing compared to Gerald’s situation or even your own since you don’t really want to die.

You instead think about the time you went to the zoo and how you saw an animal in a cage that was bigger than your whole house. That makes you sad enough and when Gerald asks you why you’re spaced out, you just say, “I saw a dead person on the way here.” which is sort of true since you did after all see Mr.

Boom lay down on his bed and close his eyes, if only for a few minutes.

Gerald doesn’t ask you any more questions and when the two of you get up to head to the magic mirror room, you’re stopped by S. Head.

“Oh, I thought I saw you two come in together.” She says.

Are you here to see me or is there something else that you needed to do first?”

Gerald starts to say that he needs to use the bathroom really bad but stops when he sees that S. Head is carrying a clipboard.

“I have an entry card.” Gerald says holding it up.

Can I go in now?”

“Ah yes, Gerald, you’re first.” She says opening the door just a bit. “

I trust you remember the way?”

“Yeah…” Gerald starts to say but then stops. “

Wait, how did you know my name?”

S. Head just smiles at him and gently pushes him through the door. Before she can push you through as well, you stop her and ask if you can say goodbye to Gerald.

She rolls her eyes a bit but says yes and opens the door a little wider. You can see Gerald looking around the room, confused.

“It’s a big room.” You call out to him and he turns his head to look at you but can’t seem to find where your voice is coming from.

“Yeah…” He answers back, still looking around.

“There’s a guy in there with no skin.” You warn him.

“A pretty lady, too.”

“I’m not really going in there…” Gerald says.

You’re not?”

“Nope. I don’t like this game anymore.” He says shaking his head.

What do you mean?

You got like seven cards or something…you’ll probably get in anyway.”

“I don’t care, I just want to go home.” He says and turns to walk out.

Wait, what about our promises?”

You call out. “If you go tell S. Head that I didn’t want to play then she might think that I’m not a nice person and kick me out early.”

Gerald stops in his tracks and thinks for a moment.

“If…if you come in with me then we can both tell her that neither of us like the game and she’ll have to believe us right?” He asks hopefully.

You nod your head and Gerald runs back to the door. He opens it but just enough to allow him to stick his head through.

“S. Head…” He says trying to catch his breath.

Yes, Gerald?”

She answers, sounding rather bored.

“I don’t want to play anymore and I want to go home.” He says sadly.

You see her smile in response which makes you panic a little bit.

“That’s too bad Gerald, because the game isn’t over yet. Now I advise you to go make some friends or else your time here is going to be very long and very lonely.” She says in a rather menacing fashion.

Gerald pulls his head back from the door and hides behind it as he speaks to you.

“She won’t let me go…”

He whimpers, “What are we going to do?”

“I’ll go in by myself.” You declare, “I just need you to promise you’ll try your best to make S. Head let me go by convincing her I’m a nice person.”

Gerald nods and after telling him that you’ll try your best to return, he lets you push him away from the door.

S. Head opens it up again and motions for you to come in.

You can’t tell if she looks disappointed or not but her smile is gone and her eyes look a bit cold.

You walk into the room and turn around to take one final look at Gerald only to see the door closing on him. S.

Head takes you by the hand and leads you over to a table where a deck of cards is set up.

“This is a very simple game, all you have to do is pick up the cards and shuffle them.” She tells you as she sits down across from you.

You cautiously move your hands towards them but as soon as you touch them you feel a shock go through your entire body. You are lifted into the air and the cards flip around so that they are facing you.

Bright red letters appear on the card reading “MATCH: TOLDROF”. S.
