Q1. Does lemon, honey and warm water taken on an empty stomach induce weight loss?
Ans: This combination is very lethal for bone health. The weight loss that is seen on the weighing machine after consuming this combination is not fat loss but calcium loss from the bones. Prolonged use of this combination is associated with multiple fractures. A local study conducted at our clinic showed that there was a high prevalence of knee joint pain, arthritis, osteoporosis and other bone-related problems in people consuming this combination. The cessation of this showed a positive relation in improving their bone-related symptoms.
