Every day we come across seemingly useful health tricks that promise lasting weight loss, better well-being, a stronger immune system. Mindmegette shows you what the reality is behind them.
1. “I drink lemon water every day to lose weight”
Quite a few dieters recommend drinking concentrated or diluted lemon juice (i.e., lemon water) on an empty stomach several times a day because it reduces appetite and boosts fat burning, but remember that you are risking the integrity of your teeth! The acid in lemon dissolves calcium and phosphate from tooth enamel. Because of this, your teeth may become sensitive to both cold and heat over time, and later become prone to tooth decay.
Solution: If you don’t want to give up about this method, after each lemon water, rinse your mouth with clean water each time. If you drink lemon water on an empty stomach every morning, be sure to rinse your mouth with clean water afterwards!
2. “I don’t eat any more meat from now on!”
Sometimes the novice vegetarians they fill their plate with too many finished products and sweets. If you don’t eat less meat for health reasons, but want a fat-free diet, your decision could lead to severe nutrient deficiencies if we’re not careful enough…
Solution: Get help from a nutritionist to create a new diet! The dietitian will teach you what you can substitute for and what nutrients a person who does not eat meat should pay close attention to. But vegans can also choose from a number of books and cooking classes.

These were 2020’s favorite diets!
Surveys show that this year, too, many have opted for weight loss solutions that promise fast and spectacular results instead of a complete diet transformation.
Perhaps the most popular of these was intermittent fasting, let’s see how the top list of 2020’s favorite diets turned out! Writes mindmegette.hu.
1. A 16: 8 DIET
The point is that a 16-hour fast in a given day is followed by 8 hours when anything can be eaten. The 16-hour period also includes a night’s rest and usually lasts until morning. Eating skipping breakfast is allowed in the late morning / afternoon period. Not surprisingly, the method is popular, as it is the easiest to follow. It is important to note that this was a small study, specifically this diet has been little researched so far, so it cannot be said with absolute certainty that it would be effective in reducing overweight.
2. THE 5: 2 METHOD
In this diet, for two non-consecutive days, women can consume only 500 calories per day, and men can consume 600 calories, while on other days they can eat as usual. A 2017 study by the American International Journal of Obesity reported that this method resulted in greater weight and fat loss compared to diets with higher daily calorie limits. However, as with the 16: 8 type of fasting, despite the positive result, there are not enough research results in this case to concretely support the effectiveness of the method.
