Review of Lemon Diet
Lemon diet is an extremely low protein and calorie count, the body is not able to generate enough energy to provide sufficient nutrients to rebuild lost muscle tissue. There is therefore a good chance that those who report rapid weight loss are actually losing muscle than fat. There is also the danger of the body sensing a sudden loss in calorie intake and goes into starvation mode where it maintains stores of fat for emergencies given the reduced intake..
