What to eat: 1 lemon
Add lemon juice to food and brighten up your dishes. Or squeeze some into a glass of water to support liver and gall bladder function. “The citric acid in lemons helps break down lipids and stimulates digestive juices,” says Elson Haas, M.D., author of Staying Healthy with Nutrition., who does a 10-day lemonade cleanse each year to reduce body fat and cholesterol.
