New Delhi: A new weight-loss trend has surfaced on social media, in which it is being claimed that drinking black coffee mixed with lemon juice helps in losing weight quickly. But is the combination of black coffee and lemon helpful in weight loss? Know what the experts say.
What happens if you drink lemon coffee?
According to experts, both coffee and lemon contain many nutrients and you get different benefits by consuming them. You can also consume both things in reducing weight. Coffee contains caffeine, which increases metabolism. It stimulates the central nervous system and alerts the mood. Due to this, your stomach remains full for a long time, you do not eat again and again and you avoid taking extra calories. Lemon is also a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which protect you from free radical damage.
Both these things are healthy, but neither of them is a magic way to lose weight. Drinking lemon mixed with coffee will make you feel less hungry and will boost metabolism, but there is no scientific evidence that it will be very effective in burning fat. To lose weight, you have to take care of many other things and make changes in lifestyle habits.
How effective is coffee in reducing weight
It has been revealed in many studies that drinking coffee helps in reducing weight, but do not mix milk and sugar in coffee. You will not get any benefit from this. Coffee contains elements like caffeine, theobromine, theophylline and chlorogenic acid, which help reduce weight. Lemon detoxifies the body, as well as keeps digestion right.
Don’t drink too much
However, keep in mind that do not drink too much coffee. Consumption of coffee in excess can cause problems like dehydration, dizziness and headache. Apart from this, if you have an acidity problem, then consuming lemon in large quantities can increase your problem.
