In this episode, I talk to dietitian Katrina Mills were we debunk the Lemon Detox diet. Every time I hear someone going on other detox diet, a little part of my soul dies. All jokes aside, it annoys me to no end. This is because I know they are ineffective. They can increase weight gain long term and destroy self-confidence.
Fundamentally the theory about detoxing is scientifically so wrong, it’s laughable. We have a liver, which is the body’s natural detoxifier. No amount of sucking on lemons is going to help that.
There is nothing magical about lemons. Except that they are sour and have next to no calories. Which means if you’re drinking lemon juice with water, you’re drinking calorie free liquid and not eating. This is a starvation plan.
