This Sparked Me!

Years ago I learned this secret. Drink a warm glass of water with lemon juice in it. Believe it or not, it has always helped me.

    Well, heck. I stopped drinking lemon water & hit a plateau. Hmmmm. Lemons, here I come. Thank you!

    I heard it with lemon and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and it works great!

    Do you do that in the morning? And drink lemon water thru out the day or does it need to be warm water? I have tried it but I dont know if I am doing it right. Thank you

    As I was reading this, I was drinking a hot lemonade with ginger. Yummy! Hope it works to break this plateau.

    I agree with the lemon juice. For a double whammie, mix it with warm green tea. If this is too bitter for you, add a small amount of local honey as a sweetener. Plus this gives you energy for that next walk.

    I do this every morning and have for over 4 years now, and I am still on a plateau. Comes and goes same 2-3 lbs.

    I've also heard it with the applecider seems to be a really good way to get you going again! I had forgotten about it until I read this! Thanks for the reminder! :)

    How long do you need to do this before the plateau breaks? Can't imagine it's just once...details please. I'm stuck for a year now!! Thanks :)

    Thanks for that tip. I'm going to try it, thanks again.

    I wonder if it works another time of the day (before evening meal or to avoid snacking) because I just can't drink this in the morning !

Also how effective have you found it is ?

    Easy enough to do. I'll try it.
MYEPIPHANY 4/21/2011 9:10:00 AM

    I do this first thing every morning.

    I've found this to suppress my appetite
