I read last night that a glass of room temp water and lemon helps your body turn fat into a Liquid so it can be flushed out of your body. Anyone else doing this. I was at the store buying lemons real quick after I read that. I got to tell you that It has been many years Since I have had real lemon juice. It was pretty darn good too. Anyway it says to have it first thing when you wake up. I guess I will see what happends. Doug in Calif :) ;) :D

I've heard some great things about it, as well. I tried it a couple times but the taste was...a little too much for me. I couldn't finish a whole glass. I had forgotten about it, actually, so I'm going to try doing it again.

I squeeze a whole lemon into a glass of water first thing in the morning...I have also read that it is very good for you.

I've just started drinking lemon water with some agave nectar in it. This week I started drinking it up until lunch at noon. I"m trying to give my digestive process a break from food during that time. Monday I was hungrier in the morning, Tuesday I felt pretty darn good. This morning I'm feeling a little detoxy and sluggish.
I don't know about turning fat to liquid, but i'm hoping to lose my fear of not eating. The little agave keeps me from being hungry, but I do get to watch all the times I want to reach for solid food. I'm hoping to one day have the courage to do the Master Cleanse.
*nope, not yet seeing any liquid fat this morning!* ;)

When my Dad went on the fat flush diet, the book recommended drinking lemon water upon rising. I think it has something to do with cleansing the liver for better fat digestion.

I do this as well but I use warm water. I understood that I was doing it to clear out the mucus from my digestive system first thing in the morning.

Yes, I was doing this, but not for that reason. I was putting lemon in my water ( when I first began ) because I wanted to be able to drink more. I like lemonade. Or sometimes I'll use limes.
I made a mistake, though. I used whole lemons in DISTILLED water. Bad, bad idea. Because of the demineralization of the distilled water, it creates a vacuum when mixed with the astringent of lemon and added to the body. It will cause too quick of a drawing process out of the body creating imbalances in the electrolyte system and liver enzymes.
So, only use whole water, infused water, well water, ozonated water... but not distilled.
When I found out that Raw Lemonade is a body astringent I now use it when I feel I need to clean out a bit more. I don't need to put myself into anymore of a detox than I have been. And this may be why you're feeling a bit icky right now... you've introduced a cleansing agent.
I'd continue as long as you feel you can stand it. Don't feel you need to keep on something if it's messing with your idea of raw or how well you're functioning. You could come right back up to feeling wonderful once you're out of this detox phase... or you back off of the lemonade.. whichever you feel you can handle.
If you want to, you can back down off of the amount of lemon in the water if you feel you need to lighten up the cleansing power.

What about reverse osmosis water cuz' that's all I drink. Is it okay to drink lemons in it?
11-02-2005, 11:28 AM
Reverse osmosis should be just fine - just as long as the natural properties of general water are not intentionally drawn out. I know that true water is H20 ( one hydrogen and 2 oxygen atoms ), but earth water contains other things such as trace minerals. When they're artificially removed, it does something to the molecular make up when mixed with the body.
I could have really hurt myself. I was so glad I figured out the problem when I did!
