Cut, Squeeze, Pour.

Lemon Detox Diet.

I don’t want to commit to a strict length of time for this detox, but I’m thinking somewhere between 5 and 7 days. I don’t think 10 days ventures into healthy territory for me. I’m only 21… don’t think I need that much of a cleanse… (:

Day 1 (Monday) – Really hard. I was craving everything under the sun. Healthy Breakfast + 4 cups.

Day 2 – Still pretty hard. No longer craving as many things, but some mild stomach discomfort set in. 8 cups.

Day 3 – Woke up with a lot of energy and earlier than usual. One of the reasons for getting on this detox is because I was still feeling tired after sleeping 10 hours, and just sluggish all day. The day went pretty well. Accompanied friends to go get pho (…! and I resisted), though there was some mild boredom and it felt easier to just go out and eat. Late at night I was starting to feel hunger pangs so I drank a few more sips of lemonade and went to bed at around midnight. 6 cups.

Day 4 – Woke up reluctantly to write an essay, but again full of energy. Not so many cravings anymore but any food seems sufficient to fulfill the hunger void. Though I shouldn’t be hungry… I should keep making more lemonade, but I have only a short break between classes today so it has to wait.

  1. I’ve considered going on this cleanse, so I’m actually very curious to see how it turns out for you. I appreciate that you have a kind-of log going on for each day. Be careful.

  2. I’ve never heard of a lemon detox. I do know that if I had nothing but lemon for even a day my stomach and throat would probably implode (which is why I’m not supposed to eat lemon, or anything citrus for that matter). I do hope yours don’t implode. But if you start getting sores in your mouth, or major acid reflux, I would advise stopping.

    That said I’m glad you seem to be getting beneficial results. Do take care.
