lime juice with water
Hi

I have read somewhere that drinking lime juice with luke warm water in empty stomach helps to speed up the metabolic rate. Does anybody know if it causes acidity or other ulcer/gastrik related problems if taken in empty stomach?

Many thanks.

I have not heard that about Lime Juice. I know some put some Lemon Juice in their water to help with digestion, and some will eat a grapefruit a day for weight loss, but, being these are all "citrus" and "acid" I would be very careful, especially if you are susceptible to stomach problems or have an ulcer.

Also, if on certain blood pressure meds, be careful, citrus fruit can cause a bad reaction if taken with these drugs.
