    Re: Lemon Juice!

    I'm not sure why it works really, but I definitely believe it does. Maybe its because it has a hugely alkalinic effect on your body. Maybe cos it helps your liver process toxins. Maybe cos it brings all the gunk to the surface.

    On that point, note that it can cause a small initial breakout. It did for me. I think it's because it pushes toxins out of the skin. I've heard it's best to squeeze the lemon juice into a large bottle of water and drink throughout the day, so that you don't "hit" your body with it all at once. I however could not be bothered doing it this way and prefer to drink it in one hit in the morning and again before going to bed.

    I'm still convinced these lemons are working!

    Good luck!

    I've been hit with the initial breakout, aswell. At least I'm hoping that's all it is! It's not severe right now, so it's no big deal...This is my third day drinking lemon juice in the morning, so we'll see how it goes...I actually look forward to it! It tastes so good!

    hmm.. thats interesting. i'm on my 4th day and so far no initial breakout. the one i had from the week before is going away, actually. it might just be because i am only doing half a lemon right now (too expensive to do a whole one everyday!) I will keep you posted.

ACV is not only great for using it on your skin externally because it makes your skin more acidic but it is also great for increasing the pH to a more alkali level inside your body as the stomach converts it from acid to alkali.

    Word.

    The lemon is acid, but it's assimilation by the body is alkaline. Drinking lemon with your water first thing in the morning is very helpful for the body's cleansing process and good support for the organs involved (liver, kidneys, colon).

    The initial breakout isn't major or serious, but I did notice an increase in acne the first week.

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    Two quick questions...

    Is it ok if I drink the lemon and water while taking my vitamins? Also, can I eat directly after drinking it or should I wait a little bit?

    Can't see any harm in doing that.

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    forgot to mention, I went to this farmers market and I bought some lemons. They were 5 for $1? Also picked up some organic green tea which was .75 cents for a 20 pack. are these good prices?

    I will definintely stick to this religiously and see how it goes. I think it's recommended that you drink the juice very gradually throughout the day so as to release the toxins slowly, but I just don't have the time to organise this.

    Anyone else had success with lemon juice?

    Accutane Avenger,
    I have been trying to find more info on this, but can't seem to find it. Where did you find your research?

    Thanks!
