Why Lemons Are Essential on a Ketogenic Diet
They say when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. Today, you’ll never look at lemons the same way again.
Lemons are 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 to burn fat fast. When there are not enough carbohydrates, ketones from the liver serve as a source of energy.
Lemon water or sugarless lemon juice is a perfect match to any diet, including the ketogenic diet. Lemons are greatly involved in maintaining the normal pH balance of the body, thanks to its alkaline components.
Certain proteins from the food we eat produce uric acid, which is the culprit for painful gout. By drinking lemon juice, you keep uric acid at a normal level – keeping your kidneys, liver, and your whole body healthy.
