14 DAY LEMON WATER CHALLENGE
Detoxification (“detox”), as a procedure that allegedly purifies the body of chemicals and toxins, has been known for centuries. It is being used widely and many religious groups and philosophers recommend it, including the father of Medicine, Hippocrates.
Many detox diets nowadays can help you lose weight. If you start a low-calorie fasting, your body can starve and your metabolism will slow down because of the important nutrients loss.
One easy change anybody could make is replacing one meal with something healthy, like Beyonce’s low-calorie lemon drink.
Why it could work for you
- It’s low in calories.
There are no magical qualities about lemon that make it good for weight loss — it’s simply low in calories! Exercise can certainly help weight loss, but it doesn’t do much good if you’re eating more calories than you’re losing, according to WebMD. Lemon is great because it adds lots of flavor with very few calories.
- It’s a metabolism booster.
Cayenne pepper revs up your metabolism and helps burn a few extra calories. This South American pepper is rich in flavanoids and carotenoids, which contribute to eye health and slows the onset of age-related macular degeneration. Cayenne contains capsaicin, which has been known to be very effective at reducing pain and improving joint movement to stiffness in muscles. Lastly due to its spicy kick, consuming cayenne will raise your body temperature and eliminate toxins through sweat. Although many people are not bog fans of sweating, this is a natural way to benefit your health. Sweating allows our bodies to detox by flushing out toxins and other unwanted substances. In addition, sweating opens your pores and helps keep your skin looking fresh. Maybe you prefer less spicy, so use less cayenne pepper, but the amount of each ingredient I listed out for you ends up being PERFECT.
- You won’t skip breakfast.
Like the old saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, many people think they can cut calories by skipping the meal altogether. But Elizabeth Ward, author of The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to the New Food Pyramids, told WebMD that people who skip breakfast “usually end up eating more throughout the day.”
