I was told diabetics shouldn't eat lemons. Is that true? Because I eat at least two a day. I love my lemons.
A 3-ounce lemon contains just 24 calories and 8 grams of carbohydrate, which is much less than many other fruits. Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and they contain antioxidants that may protect against cancer and boost heart health, as well. However, you should be careful about eating lemons as the acid that they contain can erode your tooth enamel, increasing the risk for cavities and tooth decay. As much as you love your lemons, I’d suggest that you speak to your dentist about how they may affect your teeth.
