If you are aiming for weight loss, apart from monitoring your diet and exercise routine, you should also try a combination of lemon juice and parsley. While lemon juice is a good detoxifier, when combined with parsley, it can work wonders for your weight loss regime and help in losing belly fat.

While parsley is low in calories, it contains vitamins A, B, C and K as well as minerals such as iron and potassium. It also works as a natural diuretic which can help to flush away toxins and excess fluid. Another important factor that parsley helps with is in maintaining blood sugar balance, and the chlorophyll content can aid weight loss. It also contains enzymes that improve digestion and play a role in losing weight.

Lemon juice, a favourite among weight watchers, boosts hydration in the body, helps in digestion, and maintains the body’s pH balance.

Here’s how you can make a nutritious drink using parsley and lemon:

Take a bunch of chopped parsley and squeeze the juice of a lemon. Put in a blender and add a cup of water. Have it fresh and on an empty stomach for best results.
