Honey & Lemon for weight loss


Nope! Drinking honey with lemon, early in the morning is not going to help anyone lose weight!

Losing or gaining weight depends on energy deficit or surplus in the body. If there is excess energy in the body (calories through food more than calories spent by the body) then you gain weight. Similarly, if there is an energy deficit, then you lose weight. This means, even if you have honey + lemon water, you will not lose weight unless you create a calorie deficit. Remember – law of conservation of energy and mass is a universal phenomenon! ( Watch for more details – http://bit.ly/2JuTRJB )

Honey too is healthy (natural honey with little processing) and has many essential minerals, anti-oxidants etc, apart from it being anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory in nature. However, honey is calorie-dense – more calories than sugar or jaggery. (Watch for more info – http://bit.ly/2BWBd9m )
