When you start a new diet, you need to get some simple advice to make it effective, right?
Well, a simple trick that is supposed to help you lose weight aroused a lot of interest on social media.
This happened when one of their users suggested that adding lemon juice to coffee could help speed up fat burning.
Some nutritionists have refuted this claim, but one nutritionist says it is possible for some people to see changes from this combination.
Although your primary concern may be that adding lemon juice to your coffee may not be very tasty, AgroWeb.org invites you to learn the explanation given by nutritionists.
Leaving the issue of taste aside, how do experts explain this combination?
Health professionals already know that lemon juice lowers the glycemic index, the rate at which blood sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream.
So if you accompany a meal with lemon juice like salad, fish or even coffee, it slows down the speed with which the body absorbs carbohydrates from foods in that meal.
This means that blood sugars will not rise quickly and this is certainly a good thing.
Experts advise that you should use at least half a teaspoon of lemon juice for it to have this effect.
But what do experts say about lemon juice, coffee and weight loss?
According to experts the effect of lemon juice on blood sugar levels does not help you with weight loss.
And that mixing lemon juice and coffee in itself is a moot point.
According to them it may be possible for this combination to reduce an individual’s appetite, thus leading to weight loss.
What not to do if you decide to add lemon juice to your coffee to lose weight?
Usually when you add lemon to any food, you should also add either salt or sugar to balance the taste.
But in the case of a diet your coffee should not contain sugar.
And finally, if you like this combination and enjoy it, there is nothing wrong with consuming it.AgroWeb.org
