I ❤ this lemonade diet
I'm currently doing a 14 day lemonade detox diet after the thanksgiving holiday. The first time I did it was years ago, I've always had great success with 15 to 20 pounds of weight loss.
Good results. Terrible taste
Simple to follow. Make it and go. The taste is to be acquired. It took me over a week to be able to stomach the taste.
I did see results and it did work for me. Maintain healthy eating
Very positive experience
I dont normally review products but on this occasion I would like to share my experience of the Lemon Detox Diet. I recently tried a short term low calorie diet which was quite successful but following two holidays, I felt a detox was in order. I did the Lemon Detox Diet for 5 days and i lost just under 4kg which was pretty good considering i had two slip ups. I felt strong throughout and the drink definitely keeps hunger at bay so all in all it was a pleasant experience. The syrup tastes ok, I drank it with hot water more often than not but it...s fine cold too. I have read online about drinking salt water in the mornings, I didn't do this as the leaflet I got in Holland and Barrett had no mention of it so i thought it best to give it a miss. I wasn't permanently on the loo either but i did have to blow my nose a lot as the detox was clearing my lungs and i guess being an occasional smoker was partially to blame for this. the hard work begins now but i would certainly recommend this detox without any hesitation.
Why don't they ever define Toxin?
Do you know why they never define toxin?
Because that part is up to YOU!
The reason is that we all think toxin means something different.
I may be drinking too much beer, you might like chocolate, Jane enjoys salt and vinegar chips, Simon eats fried food every day..
Detox from what?
They never say..
We already have a liver and kidneys. They are usually free and work better than this nonsense.
Lemon detox is misleading or deceptive... can't figure out which one.. But you can be sure both are illegal.
Never an Easy Fix But Results Speak For Themselves.
Like any other product promising results, but actually as I have discovered, does exactly that if you stick to the rules. No weight loss program or quick fix is an easy ride, for this product you need to toughen up and take it like a man. The end result will be more than what you expected, that uncomfortable feeling is natural, it's the bodies way of dealing with an extreme form of detoxification. Locals in PNG use this method that they tweak ever so slightly for different health issues so finding and using this product was great. You can't exp...ect a product to work without symptoms, but you will definitely feel this product at work. From what I have read and heard, I can deduce that the effectiveness of the product depends on the individual dynamics of the user, how bad what he eats, how we leave bad of course, how we think as 50 percent of any remedy is sychological. Give your body a break, prepare for a rough but short ride and give this a go.
Takes incredible discipline
This is a very shocking cleanse for your body. But the results are incredible. On the 4th day of the detox my calf muscles were hurting and I read that this is due to the body eating the toxins out of the muscles. Pretty crazy stuff. The lemon mix is quite tasty but it is no way filling. Expect to be RAVENOUS from midday of day 1 right up until you finally finish. The best part for me was the lemon removing the mucous from my lungs as an ex smoker. I honestly feel this detox has added another 3 years to my life expectancy!
Great Cleanse and Detox
I'm currently doing this detox for a second time.
First time trying definitely worked wonders. I did the 7 day Lemon Detox as per instructed and managed to lose just over 6kg's by day 7.
The salt water in the morning's is definitely the hardest to get through, I would definitely recommend some time as it took me 20 minutes to drink I felt the need to vomit it all out but managed to keep it down and only shortly after I had to go to the toilet to flush it out of my system. So it wasn't as bad as I thought.
Lemon drink itself is a bit of...a bitter sweet type of drink, I don't mind it at all. Have found the first 2 days to be a challenge but once you get to day 3 it's a total breeze. I don't get hungry as long as I drink throughout the day I have found it keeps me feeling full and I often find myself going to the toilet regularly to flush it out of my system. Definitely feel more refreshing and cleansed by the end of each day and exercising on a regular basis contributes to the end results.
Love, Love, So Easy!!!
I sprained my ankle a week ago and I was already trying to lose weight so when this happen I was pretty devo. I already had the detox at home as I brought it this time last year but just made excuses not to do it.
Well, I am on my 7th day today and I'm going great!! I had no intention to do this detox for 7 days but when I got to the 5th day I thought why stop now. I am going to continue and stop on the 10th day. I have already lost 6kgs and I feel amazing!!! For sure I will do this detox at least a few times during the year and I highly reco...
I only managed a day and a half on this diet/detox. I found it so extreme and inconvienient that I just couldn't justify continuing. By the end of day one I weighed 4.5kg heavier, due to the salt water flush not working. I had followed it to the letter, but it failed to work for me. Consequently I retained all of that salt. All that I could do was drink lots and lots of water to try to flush the salt from my system. Needless to say I spent the night up and down to the loo. Feeling less bloated on day two I skipped the salt flush started on my s...econd lot of lemon drink. I was nearly sick, that's when I decided to give this one a miss. I guess if you can have fast access to a toilet 24/7 may be ok. However I don't believe it is suitable for very busy people. It just wasn't suitable for me, I only have about 8kg to lose and will just have to do it sensibly. Cost wise it is a rip off, as whilst searching the net I found recipes, for the same thing for 1/3 of the price. Tree Syrup? Pfffffft it's Maple Syrup. Dangerous
A little bit of tough love
I sprained my ankle from coming off my bmx bike, i didn't want to get fat cause i'm immobile and cant do any type of cardio exercise and i have to rest and keep my ankle elevated so why not do a detox?
I noticed this is what you feel like when you've been struck with food poisoning not being able to eat solids and pooping 20 times every morning and 4 times evening after senna/ salt water flush. What a painful process but all for the greater good i guess, i'm on day one. The main bad symptoms are after the salt water flush these are :dizzyne...ss, nausea, cold/ goose bumps all over, headache, and tummy cramps. Sea salt water- i dissolved 2 teaspoons in a small measuring cup and had a litre of water in the other hand so i had my shot of salt with a water chaser, no way i could do 1 litre of salt water in one hit, after an hour i had fluro yellow water coming out from my colon in short spurts (amazing) i've gone to toilet 11 times and counting in a 2 hour period, i felt like vomiting 15 mins after i drank the salt water but managed to pull my [censored word removed] together and hold it down. After i finished going to the bathroom for 2 hours all my symptoms are gone. I kind of feel a buzz all over my body my head tingling maybe its relief from all the yucky [censored word removed] leaving my body..... Lol Senna leaf tea- so i put a full teaspoon into my t2 teapot (2 cups) added hot boiling water and put the microwave timer on for 10 minutes ( i googled that you should not let senna leaves sitting for longer than 15 mins they are very potent and can have very strong effect on your tummy, you can damage your liver long term too) i'm pooping all my solids i've ever consumed in my life out lol it literally just falls out of you! I went to toilet 4 times it was a breeze, my stomach was painful whilst pooping i think it was my stomach contracting and prepping me for the poop, but felt great after it was all out of me! Lemon detox drink- i made a 2 litre batch with 3 lemons (the citrus felt funny on my teeth so i didn't worry about the 3.5 lemons as recommended) 120ml of maple syrup few pinches of cayenne pepper and filled it up with filtered water and into the fridge! I have heaps of ice in every glass and drink through a straw. Not eating solids is fine with me it's a mental thing that i can block out and the lemon drink tastes like a cocktail so i love it. Reminds me of a sangria with a lemongrass ginger asian twist or a chilli mojito. In my head i'm feeling too sick to eat so i'm sipping on this fab cocktail. Just like being on holidays in thailand or bali lol
Tomorrow is day 12 for me. Last day! So far I've lost 6kg, feel so much lighter, fit into my clothes so much better and just feel cleaner! I was so skeptical about this at first but am glad that I tried it. I'm expecting a 1-2kg gain when I start eating again but that's normal after not eating for 12 days! I've already started looking at food differently, thinking about what I'm putting in my body and what is going to make it work better. That was the whole point. To restart my brain and body in a positive way. It's been very difficult es...pecially when still cooking food for my daughter and not having an afternoon coffee or glass of wine at night! The hunger pains never stopped for me, I was always hungry so happy that I"m coming to the end. This was the reboot I needed! easy to make, drink was pleasant bathroom ALL the time!
This is excellent it couldn't go better
I am in my 5 day and I feel amazing just realise how we poison ourselves with bad food. For those who had a bad experience sorry this does not work for them. Not all program's suits everyone. This is my second year doing the detox and I'm thinking everyone should do it once a year. I hope this post help people like me at first so skeptical after trying just grateful with the benefits of the drink. Actually I never write reviews about anything but I think. This product it's worth it yo try. Again no for everyone I suppose.
So much energy. I feel a new me
Little cramps and funny sounds
I'm on day 4 of lemon detox and was very skeptical and afternoon of day 1 thought 'why the hell am i doing this??' But im determined and pulled through and have never felt better. I have more energy than ever and have been in a great mood. The worst part by far is the salt water in the morning but squeeze a decent slice of lemon in it and its way better. Drink tons of water and peppermint tea is great to refresh your palatte (same flavours get boring especially when you're surrounded by fresh coffee and food smells). I found myself thinking abo...ut food a lot (especially when I'm bored) but i realise I'm not actually hungry (although im taking a herbal appetite suppressant to help). I've lost 2kg in 3 days and after exfoliating this morning my skin feels so soft. Obviously if you go back to eating like a pig when ur done you will put the weight back on and more so only do this if you're committed to kicking off a healthy lifestyle or if you already have one but have over indulged over a holiday or something. I plan on easing back into the food. I'm doing the full detox for 7 days then the relaxed version (small healthy lunch only) for 3. Then back to healthy meals and exercise. My fiancé isn't doing it so I have to be in the other room when he eats. Stay strong and stay out of tempting situations. It's only a week and you'll thank yourself! Feel great! Loads of energy and happy Think about food - mentally difficult at times
Discipline = Benefits
I am a small 159cm and had put on 5kgs to my normal weight of 53kgs.. This is the 3rd time over the past 6 years i have done the detox and still to this day think its the best thing around for not only weight loss but to reset your body, taste buds and mind. Yes the first 2-3 days are horrid and its hard to not eat when you Love food but if you have the discipline the benefits of this dextox are amazing afterwards.. I usually do it for 8-10 days depending on how much weight i loose as i don't want too much too quick. On day 3 -4 you feel better...and it just keeps getting better...This time I have lost the 5kgs in 8 days and now feel so refreshed and energized to eat clean and exercise. This detox is a good start to changing bad habits. Yes the weight will go back on if you go back to eating [censored word removed] but you generally don't want to eat anything bad after you've finished the detox anyway.
The diet itself is ok, it is made harder when people in your household are eating normally. But just stick with it, it will work.
I have also been mixing it up with plain fresh red grapefruit juice and water and hot herbal and fruit teas just for a change .
The trick with the salt water is to have the half the quantity of the warm water first, than mix the salt quantity with a a little bit of warm water to make it liquid in a small shot glass or espresso mug and quickly neck it in one, following it with the rest of the plain warm water to...

Dedication lemon detox drink
Started then diet a week ago but i stopped due to the face that i had just did the grocery shop the day before the lemon detox arrived in the mail not a very smart move i woke up first morning with diarea at 7am then couldnt drink the salt water without spewing and then by the time i tryed making the detox drink i was so hungry and i had all the yummy looking chocolate yogurts in the fridge i hid my face in the fridge and munged one down very naughty of me and then i had a quick drink of coke to wash it down then made my detox drink felt like i...wasted it one i drank it then had to do my sisters hair later that day didnt take or pre make drinks so i was very hungry by the end of the day and had chinese for dinner decided to wait till ive cleaned my fridge and cuboards out so i stay organised and dedicated
I can't believe it's still allowed to be in the market!
This is the worst diet product that I have ever experienced that I actually compelled to write a review, so that maybe I can make some people to reconsider using it. I originally bought it due to mere curiousity of how can this diet does what it claims with basically no food for 10 days. First day, energy level drop considerably. Second day, all I can think about is food. Third day, I was so weak I can't get out of bed and had to call my, now, husband to come over and feed me. This is true and I'm not exagerating. I did lost weight, of which I gained back in about 1-2 weeks. Really not worth the dying feeling
Really bad for your health
So much food around!
Day two complete of the lemon detox! I need to lose about 10kg to get to my correct BMI. Tomorrow I have an 11 hour shift at Subway- I hope my willpower is strong enough! Because I really need to do this. I've been on JennyCraig for 8 weeks and the weight is just not coming off, i go to the gym 3-4 times a week, drink plenty of water, but the weight is just staying on. I haven't tried the salt water, but I will tomorrow morning, hopefully the toilet situation only lasts for the morning because otherwise I'll have to be closing the store up a co...uple of times tomorrow.. The lemon drink has tasted fine so far, can't put too much syrup or it tastes gross, but other than the tiredness and some headaches, I feel fine. Keep you posted!Wish me luck! Convenient, Cheap, Quick weight loss, feel guilty if you cheat Thinking about food all the time

Questions & Answers
Can I drink the salt water at night rather than morning?
Don't drink the salt water, take the detox back and get your money back. It's a scam. 100% false and misleading.
You've been scammed, and you're not the first, nor the last. Please take it back for a full refund.
There is the possibility of physical harm from following the instructions, and there is no benefit at all.
Has anyone completed done the 14 day? I really need to shred some kilos and cleanse my bod.
