Okay, am I crazy? I know I’m supposed to start the day with warm lemon water, but I can’t find the page in the book where it talks about this. Does it? Or did someone on this site say to begin the day with lemon water, and now I’m assuming it’s part of the diet. When I look at the sample menus, it isn’t mentioned. The reason I’m asking is that I bought a bag of lemons (I’ve been using a squirt bottleZ) and I’m wondering if I put 1/2 lemon in or less. Thanks!

Yup it’s part of the diet, page 48, Wake up drink – every morning, as soon as yourise, drink one 8 ounce cup of hot water, squeeze half a lemon into the cup; the lemon stimulates your digestive juices.

I read on these threads someone said it helped in weight loss.  Maybe if  you google it, it would say more.  I’ll have to do that too.

You’ll just want to use 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice since that’s equivalent to 1/2 lemon.

One other thought: I squeeze 2 lemon quarters in a glass of water each morning. Then I just pour water into the same glass throughout the day. It picks up a vague lemon taste. At the end of the day, I put the lemon quarters down the disposal to freshen it!

I love the 17 Day Diet, but have trouble drinking the warm lemon water. I
tried adding Truvia to it and still no luck. I’ve resorted to adding a
green tea packet to it (1/2 Lemon + Lipton Green Tea/Cranberry
Pomegranate flavored + one Truvia packet) and I LOVE it! Is this okay to count as my daily lemon water? I still drink 3 more green teas throughout the day.

ykubiak ,  I don’t see  any reason why you can not drink that everyday.  As long as you are getting the 3 green teas in and a cup of daily lemon water somehow, IMO it sounds ok to me.  If anyone differs please post.

i also read on-line somewhere that is if the lemon squeeze bottles say “organic” on them, they are considered the same thing as lemons.  Otherwise not, but did not specify kinds.  It is because the lemon juice in a squeeze container loses properties (ie antioxidants, etc) during the processing part before the lemon juice is the squeeze container.  I dont remember what I googled but I know this is what I read.  Anyone else read this?

the hot water with the juice of half a lemon is to get your digestive juices going

 
Photo_41_medium melissaw72 4595 posts

yeah but is some of the lemon juice in a squeeze bottle the same as 1/2 real lemon?

I personally can’t use the bottled lemon juice – I think it has a bad after-taste. I’ll take the fresh squeezed anytime.

Sorry if this has been asked, but I like it w cold water. I’m looking it up right now to see if it has to be warm water. Anyone know for sure?

NEVER MIND… it says HOT… Okay, okay. LOL

I’m on day 3 and I’ve been drinking it warm with a packet of truvia. Kinda tastes like warm lemonade.

I don’t think the warm lemon water tastes bad either.

I can’t drink the lemon water, it burns my stomach too much. Feels like I’m drinking acid. Is there a page where I can ask the doctors about this?
