Using Lemons For Weightloss
Do the lemonade fast (master cleanse). Mix 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup in a glass of distilled water. Add a small pinch of cayenne pepper. During the fast you consume no food. You only drink 6-10 glasses of this lemonade per day, along with water as needed for up to 10 days. Some people find it beneficial to use daily laxative teas and salt water flushes as well for the duration of the fast. This gives the body's digestive tract a rest while helping you lose body fat. Continue by eating a healthy low fat diet afterward to avoid reversing your fasting weight loss.

Use lemon as a salad dressing. Salad dressing can pack lots of calories, helping to make seemingly healthy salads unbelievably high in fat and calories.
