Many people drink lemon water in the morning in the hope of losing weight. Sports nutritionist and nutritionist Zinaida Rudenko warned about the dangers of such actions.
In an interview with FAN, she said that a person on a diet is hungry in the morning, he already has gastric juice when he wakes up.
It turns out that in this way we increase acidity and damage the walls of the gastric mucosa, further the intestinal walls will also be damaged, - noted Rudenko.
Lemon water can be beneficial for people with acidity problems.
In addition, Zinaida Rudenko did not recommend drinking a regular meal with lemon water, as this will slow down the digestion of carbohydrates and promote the fermentation process, which will generally worsen health. In this case, it is better to drink plain water without additives.
Previously, nutritionist Maria Malysheva debunked the most popular weight loss myths. The physician noted that fasting, special drugs and a huge amount of drinking water will only aggravate the situation. NEWS.ru wrote about this.
