Lemons- Whay aren't they allowed on SCD?

i have been listening from many years that Lemons are great fat busters but on SCD thay are not allowed. any guesses why?

From last 4-5 days i have been consuming 1lemon/day. I don't feel like drinking plain water so i mix lemon juice in carbonated water (Soda water) and some black salt. It tastes good.

Now i got to know that its not allowed =-S

I agree to try it out and see how it works for you and just wanted to add that Ferriss recommends lemon juice in half of the dishes in 4-hour chef and he said those meals were supposed to be SCD compatible.

1 lemon has 1 Gram sugar and 4 Grams of Carbs- probably not enough to cause any issues. Lemons also support liver function which is always good.

I was drinking lemon water at first then i stopped. If you are still losing while drinking the lemon water then you should continue drinking it, if you notice a stall, cut out the lemon drink and see if that helps. It's all a matter of seeing what works for you individually. Also, i've heard there are errors on the eslowcarb diet site.

    I agree, Tim mentions that limes and lemons are ok, but if they stall your weight loss then stop it overall

you can have lemon juice on the plan - not sure where you read that it's not permitted. Fresh is absolutely better than the pre-juiced kind.

    rio, dont hold that website as an end all be all. It really is faulty with some basic principles, hence why I rarely visit it

    that site looks like a scam site

    It's not a scam sight. It's just not perfect. The site doesn't like sugar content. 1 gram of sugar is fine to consume. Lemon sliced in water is fine. I don't understand the objection to plain ice water though.

In Tim's 3 minute breakfast video he puts premade lemon juice on his breakfast.
