30 day Lemon water challenge

Lemon Water Challenge

Early in my nutrition and training career, I learned that lemon water is one of the best drinks for weight loss and health.

That very same day I bought a big bag of lemons and have been drinking lemon water ever since.

Lemon water not only quenches thirst better than any other beverage, but it also nourishes our body with vitamins, minerals and trace elements, which are essential for health and metabolic function.

This is why celebrities drink it daily to help them look and feel their best.

That’s also why I recommend drinking it to my clients, mention it in my programs, and talk about it on social media often.  It works.

Lemon water has created a noticeable change in my life and my client’s lives, too.

That’s also why I’m challenging you to drink it daily, too with my Lemon Water Challenge.

I find that when people know how they’ll benefit, it makes it easier for them to stick with it.

So before I get into the Challenge details, I’ll explain how lemon water is going to help you lose weight and feel great.

How Lemon Water Helps Weight Loss and Health

Here are 6 ways lemon water can help weight loss and health.

Helps you Hydrate Better

Lemons contain a good amount of electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium.  By adding lemon to the water you drink during and after your workouts, you’ll hydrate better, plus you’ll get a nutritional boost of essential nutrients.

Helps you Recover Quicker After Exercise

Water is alkalizing and can help dilute uric acid, the built-up acid that can cause joint pain.  It also helps dilute the lactic acid in your muscles post-workout, so you can recover faster after exercise.  Lemon water can also help reduce inflammation and give you relief from aches and pains.

It Helps with Digestion

Water alone can help relieve constipation.  But lemon contains citric acid.  This acid interacts with other digestive enzymes and acids within your digestive system, which can help improve digestion and regulate bowel movements.

It helps Detox the Liver

The liver metabolizes fat and carbs and helps remove toxins from the body.  But your liver can’t burn fat and carbs effectively when it’s overly loaded with toxins.   The liver uses enzymes to help it break down toxic substances to eliminate them.  The liver produces more enzymes from lemon water than from any other food.  Lemon juice can help stimulate the liver to release toxins, making it easier to metabolize fat and carbs.

It helps Kill Sugar Cravings

One of the best ways to kill a sugar craving is to counteract it with a sour taste.  Lemon juice is almost intolerably sour on its own.  Diluting it in water makes an unsweetened “lemonade” that can help reduce sugar cravings quickly.

It Boosts your Energy

Lemon with water can be considered the best natural energy booster. When we wake up in the morning, our bodily tissues are dehydrated and are in need of water to push out toxins and rejuvenate the cells.   That’s why it’s a key ingredient in my Natural Energy Drink recipe that I can’t live without.

Ready to soak up these amazing benefits?  Let’s do this.

Lemon Water Challenge

I created my lemon water challenge to help my clients get the most benefits quickly.

Those who’ve followed my challenge have reported noticeable results including:

  • Reduced bloating
  • Reduced inflammation, aches, and pains
  • Clearer skin
  • Better mood
  • Felt better
  • Saw constipation resolve
  • Didn’t feel as sore after exercise

How to do the lemon water challenge

Every day – for 30 days/one month – drink at least one glass of lemon water.  Bonus points if you drink more than 1 glass.  Double bonus points if you drink nothing but lemon water for the full 30 days.

To make your lemon water, add 2 teaspoons – 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice into your water.  Half a fresh lemon at home, then quarter the halves, to get your lemon wedges.  1 to 2 wedges will do for each glass of water.

Add the juice into 8 oz. of water.  I recommend using filtered water.  Temperature doesn’t matter.  Bonus if you drink lemon water made with room temperature water first thing in the morning, 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything.

It’s easy to get lemon water at restaurants!  Ask for extra lemon and squeeze the wedges into your water.

    I love this article and have tried lemon water but recently I’ve noticed major stomach pains and had to stop. but prior to that I never felt better!! All the benefits you mentioned I experienced. Do you know what could have been the cause of my stomach cramps after drinking lemon water?

      Hi! I’m not sure what could have caused your stomach pains or if it could have been caused by lemon water. Did the pain start when you started drinking it and end after you stopped? If so, avoid this challenge. If not, it could be caused by something else. Rotating foods can help you pinpoint the root cause of your stomach pain. I hope you feel better. xo

    This was really interesting 🙂 I also looked up a few things about the effect of fake sugar on the liver so, hmm, need to cut down there as much as possible 🙂 I’ve been eating a lot of peppermint lozenges because I quit nicotine.
