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! - by SOXYINMO
  • I heard it with lemon and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and it works great! - by DYNAMICDIANE1
  • 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 - by MAMAG476
  • As I was reading this, I was drinking a hot lemonade with ginger. Yummy! Hope it works to break this plateau. - by 1MANKNEY
  • 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. - by MAYO_MAN
  • 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. - by RUTHDEN1
  • 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! :) - by KYGRANDMA
  • 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 :) - by ROBINSON_CMR
  • Thanks for that tip. I'm going to try it, thanks again. - by MAGEE1649
    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 ? - by CIENACREE
    Easy enough to do. I'll try it. - by MARYSABEAN
