| The main challenge of the Lemon Detox Diet is mental. With any type of diet we need to be mentally prepared to change our eating habit even for only a short period of time. Because we are so adapted to eating whenever and whatever we like, the discipline of going on a liquid diet without solids can seem a bit overwhelming.
Some people, when thinking about detoxing for the first time imagine that they won’t be able to make it through seven days but what most people find is that after the second day it just gets easier and easier.
A true fast is a complete restraint from food of any kind, yet the Lemon Detox is liquid food - nourishing and energizing your body with simple and natural carbohydrates. It is important not to burden the body with solid food during the detox. Digesting solid food consumes much of the body's energy and reduces the effectiveness of many of its other tasks. In the short absence of solid food the body can focus its energy on cleansing.
When you experience hunger simply treat yourself to another Lemon Detox drink. This will satisfy your hunger. Keep thinking of all the benefits you will have achieved once you have finished the Lemon Detox Diet.
Having a friend or partner with you on the diet will help you motivate in reaching your personal goals.
Another advantage of being on the diet is that you will have a lot of extra time on your hands. If we calculate how many hours of each day we spend buying and preparing food, as well as eating and cleaning up afterwards, it is amazing how much time we devote to food consumption. You will also notice that you will be saving hundreds of dollars on food and alcohol by the end of the week and in the long term you could be saving thousands of dollars on food and drinking as most people will kick their bad habits and introduce a better diet and eating patterns.
The Lemon Detox Diet will give you more time to do the things you enjoy. Go out and enjoy the positive effects of the diet.
