An AM dose of lemon kickstarts your digestive process for the day and shifts your body into slim-down mode. In fact, research shows that a unique plant compound in citrus (called d-limonene) enhances the liver’s ability to break down metabolism-slowing toxins by 30 percent.
To get the benefits, drink 8 oz. of warm or hot water mixed with the juice of half a lemon each morning. And to keep that slimming action going strong, try adding lemon or lime slices to your ice water throughout the day.
Our new motto: When life gives you lemons, just use ’em to lose weight!
