Drinking lemon water while fasting can have many great benefits, and may make fasting much easier to get through and productive. Drinking lemon water aids in healthy fasting by increasing digestive enzymes that stimulate the gut and liver, which can help regulate blood sugar. When individuals combine a fast with drinking lemon water, they increase the anti-inflammatory benefits of both. When fasting, it can be hard to resist the urge to eat, but with lemon water can help satiate any cravings individuals may be having, which will make it easier to stick with a fast. 

Lemon water's polyphenols also suppress appetite and increase satiety by up-regulating an individual's mRNA levels of the enzyme that oxidizes fat, inducing weight loss. If individuals are doing intermittent fasting, lemon water is an overall great way to quell hunger pangs and make they feel a bit better while holding out for the long haul.
