  1. 1

    Drink lemon tea to relieve stress. The Vitamin C in lemon is known to inhibit cortisol -- also known as the "fight or flight" hormone -- which is responsible for bulging bellies. Both men and women gain belly bulge from stress at home and work. In fact, even slender people are prone to gain abdominal fat due to stress. So, drink lemon tea at least once a day to fight off stress and the cortisol that stress produces. Incidentally, relieving stress will also make you less prone to overeat or snack as a mechanism for fighting stress.

  2. 2

    Eat fewer calories by drinking lemon tea. Lemon tea has a trivial amount of calories, as long as you don't add sugar or milk. By drinking lemon tea, you fight sugar cravings and feel refreshed without taking in extra calories. That is why lemon tea is a great drink to have in between meals when you want to reach for a snack.

  3. 3

    Fight bloat with lemon tea. By drinking lemon tea, you can hydrate your body and flush out excess sodium that your body does not need.

  4. 4

    Fight fat with lemon tea. Lemons are known to enhance your body's absorption of cachetins, which are antioxidants that fight abdominal fat. A study conducted by Purdue University reported that Vitamin C -- which is in lemons -- helps the body to absorb cachetins three times as fast into the blood stream. Cachetins are found in green tea, so drinking green tea with lemon is a great way to boost the activity of fat-burning antioxidants.

  5. 5

    Detox with lemon tea. Citric acid aids in the detoxification of your kidneys and liver by significantly neutralising the acidity in the gastrointestinal tract. Citric acid also aids in proper digestion. By drinking lemon tea, you can fight excessive bloat and constipation.

Tips and warnings

  • Drinking lemon tea during meals also discourages overeating, since the water fills your stomach up and makes you feel more full.
