Detox Update

Well, I didn't die. I didn't make the whole 10 days. I did do 8 of them though. Let me tell you why...After the first day, I decided I couldn't stomach drinking the lemon detox concoction cold. I don't like hot drinks in the afternoon on hot days. I ended up drinking about a mug (1 1/2 cups) per day in the morning. I just couldn't take any more after day 8.

If you have absolutely no idea what I'm referring to, see Trying a Detox Concoction.

I'm going to get right to the point here. I know the mix cleaned out my system. I'm sure you get the idea, so no TMI from me. Is my "Boring" belly gone? Not exactly. BUT, the pans I used to make the drink in are super clean now!

 The pan on the left in the top picture was not used to make the drink yet.
(I didn't get a before picture of the pan on the right.)
I had to make the drink in pan left just to prove how well the lemon detox drink cleans.
The bottom picture shows the after of both.

Here's my take, if that stuff can make my pans look like new, then I'm sure it can make my intestines look new too. I think the only way to really lose the belly is to eat right and exercise. adding a little lemon detox concoction to the mix, in moderation, might be good too.

This drink is all natural, you know what you're putting in it, no surprises. I may do the lemon detox every 3 months or so. But I'm only going to do it for a week. I also tweaked the recipe, reducing all the spices down to 1/2 teaspoon each. I kept the water and lemon the same. I didn't change my diet in any way. I did feel less hungry drinking the mixture, even with the changes.

I think the spices just kick things up a notch. The lemon is the actual detoxing agent here. But, who am I to say. I'm not a doctor or a scientist. If you wan to try the lemon detox, read my Trying a Detox Concoction post.
