Most of you know I have been on Weight Watchers for a little while now. I have had some success, but like all weight-loss programs, they only work if you work them!!!!
During the holidays, I definitely slacked on my program. Indulging in sweets, good wine, and rich foods did not work on my program! But I'm okay with that. I will not beat myself up. Today is a new day.
Needless to say, I felt yucky and bloated after all of this indulgence. I remembered reading about a detox drink on Pinterest that Jillian Michaels recommends. I though I'd give it a try. Let me tell you, it really does work!!!!
I drank this little concoction the first week in January, and I lost 6 lbs in a week. Now I realize it was primarily water weight, but I felt sooo much better. Less bloated. Less sluggish. It worked so well I decided to give it a try the first week of February. I am now on my 3rd day of 7, and the same results. Less bloated. Less sluggish. Re-energized!
I am NOT a doctor, or health care professional. If you choose to give this drink a try, please check with you doctor first. If you are taking any medication, I think it's imperative you check with your doctor. Your results might be different than mine. I think if you feel bloated and yucky, it's worth a shot.
All you need is 60 oz. of distilled water, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tbsp. sugar-free cranberry juice (not diet as there are artificial sweeteners in the diet), and 1 dandelion root tea bag. Drink this throughout the day for 7 days.
Allegedly you can lose 5-7 lbs in a week. Keep in mind it is probably water weight. I lost 6 lbs the first go-round. We'll see about this time. Your results might be different than mine. I did not change my normal eating habits. I even drank a glass a wine the last time, and last night I had a beer.
If your feeling a little bloated, maybe your jeans are little bit tight, give this a try. I was a skeptic, but thought "What can it hurt?" I was pleasantly surprised, and I think you will be, too. (BTW, I tried to find the original post on Pinterest to give credit, but was unable to get to it. If anyone knows, please share!)
Make it an awesome day!
