If you are already in relatively good health, add the juice of ½ a lemon in water and drink that twice a day. If you are overweight, then add the juice of 1 lemon into the water and drink it twice a day. Try to prepare and consume fresh lemon water quickly, rather than letting it sit or be stored in the fridge. You may also add salt or sugar to the lemon water if you need to improve the taste. You may also substitute sugar with honey. Lemon should be diluted according to your personal tastes. In order to help the body efficiently absorb the energy from the food you’re eating, add lemon water to your diet on a regular basis.
