298x232-water_lemon-298x232_water_lemon1Recently, I have been drinking water with added lemon juice. I started this habit not because of any reasons. Simply, I like the taste of lemon when drinking plain water. But from this habit, I noticed that I was losing weight without any diets or exercises. I didn’t change any bits about my lifestyle only adding more lemon to my drinks. It is true people who want to cut off their weight, they often drink more lemon. It seems that it works for me. Lemon is not cheap at my place, fortunately I have a lemon tree in the backyard. Start to drink more lemon people if you want to try Lemon Diet Program. But just to remind, not to indulge yourself drinking lemon water more than you can endure. Some of us may have stomach ulcers which may not suitable for you to do this diet.

So people who are overweight or obese may be caused by low metabolism rate in their body. Therefore, instead of burning off those excess calories, they will be kept as fats in the body.

The key to the metabolism is a mitochondria. It is known as the “power house” of the body cells. So, energy that you have are mostly generated by this organelle.
