Are you supposed to "steep" the tea or just put the tea bag in the cold drink?

Correctumundo LAWGIRL!

This is NOT, I repeat NOT a juice diet or fast. This is an ADDITION to your regular meals and water intake.

Basically, lemon juice, cranberry juice and tea, are all natural diuretics. And of course if you drink at least 60 ounces of water per day that helps flush things out too.

So I guess the thinking with this formula is if you add a bunch of KNOWN diuretics together, you get the SUPER DUPER BLOAT KILLER :) lol

It worked!

Only thing is, I ran out of lemon juice, and so I didn't make a pitcher about 4 days ago. I gained 5 of the 6 pounds back. So as I said before, I think this is only good for getting rid of excess water bloat and isn't going to do a thing for long-term weight loss goals.

So let me get this straight--you drink this IN ADDITION to water and your regular calorie intake, right? This is not a "juice diet" or am I reading this wrong?

Wow! Six pounds lost just from drinking this. I may have to try it out!

Well I have only been drinking 16oz per day.

When I made the recipe I multiplied it times 4 so I could have it in a 64oz pitcher to drink whenever I wanted. It just stayed in my fridge with a note on it -

"DON'T DRINK - You won't like IT or ME if you do!!!"

so none of the kids or the husband will touch it LOL

That's a bummer that your throat is hurting! Mine isn't... either you have issues with the ingredients or you're catching a cold. Either way that's no fun :(

jONIWANTS2LOSE,

Did you do the 16oz or the 60 oz?

I was taking this for about 3 days, but i stopped because I noticed my throat was starting to hurt. I dont know if it was from that or a cold.

I was doing the 16oz.

I just have to say, I have been drinking this regularly over the last week or so, and I believe it works because I have actually lost 6 pounds. Sure, some of that was due to proper diet and exercise, but I just KNOW I can attribute some of the weight loss to excess water and this drink of Jillian's too.

For one thing, I measure as well as weigh once a week, and my neck has always stayed around 15-16". Well this past Wednesday when I measured, it was at 14.75. I didn't lose fat on my neck, it has to be excess water.

Regardless, I am thrilled about it because seeing the change on the scale helps motivate me to stay vigilant with my food plan and do better with my activity level!

How 'bout ya'll's results? How are we doing with this?

I found mine at a natural foods store. It cost me $9 for a box. When i made mine, I put in a lot of artificial sweetner, so it did not taste bitter

POSOFTBALL - from everything I have found to read on this, you drink this ON TOP OF your regular 8 glasses of water per day. It's just a little bloat kicker in addition to all your 64oz. per day or whatever.

Just remember folks - what she's talking about here is of course water bloat. So whatever weight loss we might get out of this is temporary, and will in all likelihood come right back once this diuretic drink thing is stopped.

But I agree... what have we got to lose besides some extra pounds! LOL

This sounds really interesting! I'm going to try it as soon as I find the Dandelion root tea bags. It will be great if it works as well as she says it does.

okay I'm a little confused....are we supposed to replace this for all our water requirements for the day or just have one 16oz drink per day and then drink the remaining ounces in water??

I'm gonna try this too. I'll post when I start as I'll have to gather everything I need. Does it really have to be distilled water? Will tap water or just bottled water do?

I sort of altered this a bit so I could make a huge pitcher... instead of dandelion root tea I used decaf green tea. And instead of sugar-free cranberry I used cranberry-apple with splenda. I also added a bit more lemon juice and an extra dash of splenda.

The original recipe had major taste issues LOL

Drop 5 pounds in 7 days. It is a diuretic drink designed to rid our bodies of excess water weight and bloating. You're supposed to drink this in ADDITION to your regular water intake for the day.

Here's a quote from Jillian, "Hi I'm Jillian Michaels with your no sweat summer shape up trainer. A lot of my clients ask me about ways to slim down quick. One thing I recommend is a natural diuretic drink. Take 16 ounces of distilled water. A tablespoon of sugarfree cranberry juice. One dandelion root tea bag, ad two tablespoons of lemon juice, and drink. If you do that for seven days in a row then you could easily drop 5 pounds of excess water bloat."


Recipe:
16 Oz dstilled water
1 TBS sugar free cranberry juice
1 dandelion root tea bag
2 TBS lemon juice

mix and drink each day.

* Note: You will probably have to get dandelion root tea from a health food store.

You're going to find spots on the internet where they say the recipe has SIXTY (60) ounces of distilled water.

This is WRONG!


Think about it... 60 whole oz. of water and ONE tiny little tea bag and only a single itty bitty tablespoon of cranberry juice? What's the point? It's definitely and logically SIXTEEN OUNCES of the water!!
