They say, when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade. Today, you’ll never look at lemons the same again. Lemons are actually beneficial in a keto diet – a type of weight loss and diabetic regimen that’s gaining popularity these days. In a ketogenic diet, you eat low-carb foods to force your body burn fat fast, that in the event that there are not enough carbohydrates, ketones from the liver serve as a source of energy. With this, lemon water or sugarless lemon juice is a perfect match to any diet, particularly with any ketoic diet. Lemons are greatly involved in maintaining the normal pH balance of the body, thanks to its alkaline components. For instance, certain proteins we take in produce uric acid, the culprit for the painful gout. With lemon juice, you keep uric acid at a normal level, keeping your kidneys, liver and your whole body healthy.
