Lemon-Aid: A Secret Weapon to Crush Cravings
Nothing quite satisfies on a hot summer day like lemonade. Unfortunately, most commercial lemonade varieties come loaded with sugar, and you know better than to use those nasty artificially sweetened powdered mixes!
This Lemon-Aid not only is a satisfying, delicious drink, but it also helps curbs your cravings for sweets. The “secret” involves a powerful combo of fresh lemons (which help balance blood sugar), fiber (which fills you up faster and keeps you full), and the amino acid glutamine, which knocks out cravings.
