So, What’s Up With Lemon Juice And Weight Loss?

Have you heard about the friendship of lemon juice and weight loss? Well, they seem to work together well, and I am a testimony to that fact. Why don’t we look into this topic some more? Here goes.

What Is A Lemon?

I know, am I really asking this question? But ok, a lemon is a fruit. It can be a very tart fruit and it comes loaded with Vitamin C and lots of anti-oxidant properties.

According to Wikipedia, ‘The lemon, Citrus limon (L.) Osbeck, is a species of small evergreen tree in the flowering plant family Rutaceae, native to South Asia, primarily North eastern India.’

It is a yellow-skinned fruit which you can use for many purposes:

  • Cooking – main dishes with meat, seafood using the whole fruit – juice, pulp, or the rind
  • Baking – cakes, pies, cookies
  • Making drinks – hot and cold beverages
  • Making candy – using the rind
  • Desserts or delicacy – using the pulp to make jams, jellies
  • Essential Oils – using the oil from the skin
  • As a natural cleaning agent
  • Produce electricity‘One educational science experiment involves attaching electrodes to a lemon and using it as a battery to produce electricity. Although very low power, several lemon batteries can power a small digital watch.[2] These experiments also work with other fruits and vegetables.’
  • ‘Lemon juice may be used as a simple invisible ink, developed by heat’[3]

The juice of the lemon is about 5%-6% citric acid, has a pH of about 2.2, and hence its tart taste.

Benefits Of Lemon Juice

There are quite a few benefits to be derived from using lemons for health purposes. And especially when it is a combination of lemon juice and weight loss regimen. I found a few:

  • A great detox agent for the body. It helps to flush out the toxins from your body
  • Lots of Vitamin C and antioxidants that you will get naturally
  • Helps to control your cravings if you include it in your nutritional plan

I am sure you could come up with a few and if you do, please let me know so that I can update this article.

Week #2 Update Using CTFO Weight Loss Oral Spray

SO here we are, at Week#2 of my CTFO Weight Loss Oral Spray experience. I am loving it this far. I have been using the spray for 7-days now and let me get you updated since my Week #1 article.

Honorable Mentions:

  • I take the oral spray right after I have breakfast and then continue with my day. I have found that it keeps me ‘grounded’ and not ‘snacking’ in between. And the funny thing is this, when I ‘think’ it’s time to ‘have a bite’, I do a mental check in coordination with my stomach/body, and do not get my eyes involved (by looking at the possibilities) and I realize that I can last till the next main meal, i.e dinner. So, it is changing my ‘food’ perception.
  • I drink lots of ‘lemon water’ during my day. This also acts as a reminder that I should ‘eat when I am hungry’ and not just when I ‘think it’s time to eat’. I add freshly squeezed lemon juice to plain soda water and drink as I go along my day.
  • Your mindset really has a lot to do with your results. So I am on a mission to ‘re-boot’ the way I approach eating and nutrition.
  • I have lost 1.5 kgs since I started using the weight loss spray. I am continuing with my plan.

If you are looking for a natural alternative to weight loss, you should really take a look at CTFO’s Weight Loss Oral Spray. It is easy to use, digest, and be consistent with a regimen. And of course, try out lemon juice and weight loss as a combination effort. You just might find a winner.

    Hi Michelle, I can certainly attest to the benefits of lemon for weight loss. I use to weigh over 70kg which was particularly bad for me in so many ways, for my height and body mass I was certainly over weight. Once I started drinking a glass of warm water with a slice of lemon every morning, whoa!!! I started shedding the pounds. I now weigh a healthy 55kg which is fitting for my weight. Thank you so much sharing this info. Take care

      Hello Evelynn,
      Thanks for your visit and sharing your thoughts and experience. WOW, congrats to you on achieving your personal ‘nirvana’. I totally understand what you went through. And I am a big fan of lemon juice in my water too, love the detox aspect of it too. And I am so loving this CTFO Weight Loss Oral Spray…it is making my goal easier to achieve.
      All the best.

    love lemon juice, i add it to my water every morning! sometimes i splash apple cider vinegar in there too! I didn’t know this spray was a thing, very interesting. Keep us updated on the progress thanks for sharing

      Hello there Taylor,
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Yeah for lemon water – a true love of mine. It certainly helps to cleanse the system. The CTFO weight loss oral spray is working out well too. I am really impressed with it. All the best.

    Hi Michelle, I’ve read about lemon juice but I never realized it actually helps you lose weight. I would love to try this but is the taste too tart? I guess that lemon water doesn’t have as strong a taste to it. The oral spray seems like it would be the way to go, but maybe I’m wrong and all three will help lose weight, right? If I could lose even 2 pounds a week, I’d be happy. What do you think?

    • Michelle

      Hello Rob,
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. The taste – no, it is not too tart. You decide how much ‘taste’ you want to add to it, maybe a touch of honey to get your taste buds acclimated and then reduce. The Oral Spray is not so bad in taste at all – it works for me. Well, I know for myself that I have lost 2.5 kgs so far – surprised myself. I will probably go for another kilo and then maintain. You should give it a try and leave me some feedback, Rob. All the best.

    I am one of those STRANGE people who doesn’t drink coffee or soda…. I usually drink water all day long. So lemon water for me is almost like a treat! I never knew that a lemon could produce electricity, or that it could be used as invisible ink! Thanks for your update on your use of the oral spray and congratulations on your weight loss. It is really important to connect with your body and know if it actually needs food before eating. Good luck with this product, and I will come back to see your future reviews!

    • Michelle

      No, Andrea, you are not ‘strange’. I am not a big coffee person, though I love my tea. I know I need to drink water, and lemon water makes it much easier for me to make it go down. I am doing fabulous on my weight loss and so am now in the maintenance stage. Everything is going well for me and I am thrilled. Do come and visit any time.
