Lemon has been shown to flush toxins out of the body that hold on to visceral fat. You can prepare a simple drink with lemon, water and honey to aid your weight loss.

Heat the water in your kettle or in a saucepan until it is hot, but not too hot to drink.

Pour water into a drinking mug.

Squeeze half a lemon into the mug of hot water. You could use a manual or electric juicer to do this if you have one, but it is not essential, as it's possible to squeeze the juice of the lemon by hand.
