Benefits of Lemon Water with Honey for Weight Loss


benefits of lemon water with honey for weight loss

In this article I bring to you the magical benefits of lemon water with honey concoction which aids in smooth weight loss.

80% of the world’s population looks for tips and tricks to lose weight on Google than any other topic. Oops…no offense that’s just a female assumption 😛 I am actually a part of the 80% population that is why the opening statement.

Anyway, let me jump back to my wagon and muse more on the title than my “idhar udhar ki baatein”

The simplest way to begin with weight-loss is to first make-up your mind and be all charged to walk on the path of discipline, sincerity and will-power. People who are over-weight or suffering from obesity are prone to diseases like arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, liver, gall bladder disorders, heart problems etc. So watch out before its too late.

Drinking religiously lemon with honey in warm water, in the morning on an empty stomach is the best method to begin with in the regime of losing weight.

Benefits of Lemon:

  • Majorly contains citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C which promotes immunity and fights various infections
  • Rich in anti-oxidants which supports the construction of collagen. It helps in improving the complexion and reducing wrinkles making you look younger than your age.
  • It also contain flavonoids which has the credentials to fight cancer
  • Keeps anemia at bay since it assists in iron absorption

Benefits of Honey:

  • Majorly contains vitamin C, calcium, amino acids and iron
  • It is a great energy booster since it has high amount of carbohydrates
  • As it has strong anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties it is also used as a traditional anti-septic in Ayurveda.
  • Like lemon it also has anti-oxidants which improve your complexion.

Now when the two wonders come together and taken with warm water, it does all the magic and helps you to lose weight.

How to prepare lemon and honey water?

Fill a glass with warm water (drinkable temperature depending upon your tolerance level). Squeeze out half a lemon juice and a teaspoon honey. Stir well and drink.

You must be wondering, why the water needs to be warm?

It is because warm water cleanses our system by triggering the metabolism which efficiently supports in burning the unnecessary fat deposited in our body.

6 Benefits of lemon water with honey for weight loss:

Here are some of the benefits of lemon water with honey if taken on a regular basis.

  1. Encourages healthy digestion:

Poor digestion bloats your stomach, gives you acidity and belching. Warm water with lemon juice and honey fuels the digestive system. It thus cleanses the stomach giving you a healthy life style.

  1. Reduces unnecessary cravings:

This mixture keeps the cravings at bay. Lemon juice has pectin fibres which hinders the taste buds and doesn’t give you frequent hunger pangs. This itself restricts our junk food munching at frequent intervals.

  1. Instant energizer:

It boosts your energy levels which ultimately makes you ready for an active day. Forget those lethargic times when you didn’t even feel like getting out of the bed. Drinking this magical drink will make you strive for the best of health and a perfect body weight.

  1. Reduces excess sugar absorption:

The artificial sugar absorption lessens with the daily intake of the concoction. The toxins are flushed out of the body giving a uniform balance of all the essential nutrients which includes the healthy fat and healthy sugar as well.

  1. Healthy urinary tract:

The mixture increases the frequency to urinate which naturally keeps you away from the urinary tract infection. It also helps in weight loss because urinating at regular intervals relieves the body of storing up excess of water and avoiding the body to inflate.

  1. Helps in constipation:

In view of the fact that it helps in digestion, it also lends a hand in fighting with constipation as it cleanses the lymphatic system and loosens the stool. What more to feel light and happy!! 🙂

P.S.: Please have this concoction the first thing in the morning and avoid tea/coffee at least for 30 minutes to get the best of results. Of course, teaming it up with a little work-out and banning of junk food will give you million dollar smiles for a lifetime.

  6. Dear Rose,
    If you are suffering from Hypothyroidism, please consult your doctor at the first place. You should always take your medicines on time without any compromises. As far as I know, you can have lemon juice after an hour of taking your medicine and combine it with a healthy and properly cooked breakfast. Please read my article on Thyroid for a quick over view –
