We're all used to hearing that it's best to start the morning the right way - with water, or even better, with lemon. Since all the processes in the body will start after drinking it, you will be able to have breakfast in 15 minutes.

Nutritionists say that people who start their day with lemon water can have very unexpected "side" effects from it, reports Еatthis.

According to nutrition consultant Jody Griebel, lemon water reduces bloating, and it also acts as a diuretic, which helps with fluid retention.
