detox tea.

jillian michaels is claiming that you can lose excess water weight with this drink.
and anything that jillian michaels says regarding health & fitness, i'll believe.
except those dumb weight loss pills. 
jillian, that's stupid - no pill can make you lose weight.
a drink can't either, so why am i trying it?
i'm on a pinterest kick, and i'm a sucker.
 
 
the source from pinterest. 


you need:
60 oz water
juice from half of a lemon
2 tbsp cranberry juice (NO sugar added)
1 dandelion root tea bag.
 
 
first, boil some water and put it in your pitcher with the tea bag.  let that steep for a few minutes.  then add in the cranberry & lemon.  voila!
 
basically you drink this throughout your day.  you can still have your coffee too, score.  but after that try to just drink water or at least don't drink anything with artificial sweeteners.  do it for 7 days.
 
 
the verdict as of day 4: 
 it tastes good!  kind of just tastes like lemon water.  i can't really taste the dandelion root, maybe just a hint (just tastes a little earthy).  i can't taste any cranberry though.  i find it pretty pleasant and not at all hard to drink.  i'm actually starting to really like it, it's a nice switch up from my normal water.  i haven't weighed myself, so whether or not i've actually lost any water weight is TBD!

    1. oh no :( i couldn't either, but i finally found some in GNC, not sure if you have any kind of health food/vitamin stores around you. you could always check amazon, they have everything on there.

  2. Dandelion root alone is really nasty to me. I might try this tea...I'm a tea girl, especially in the fall and winter!
    If you really want to lose weight in a healthy fashion, check out the 17 Day Diet. I did that after the holidays and lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks. Now I just kinda stick to the guidelines...lots of fresh produce and few bread carbs...typical.

    1. i'm not even necessarily trying to lose weight, i just like to try this stuff out b/c i see it on pinterest haha! plus i guess if i have "excess" water weight it wouldn't hurt to flush it. i'm not sure if i'd like the dandelion tea either, doesn't smell appealing on it's own but you can't taste it much in w/ the lemon!

  3. Oh and weight loss pills scare the crap out of me.

    1. OMG, me too! first of all, no pill will make you lose weight - healthy eating & working out does that. if there was a magical pill wouldn't everyone be taking it and be skinny?

  4. I hateeee dandelion root. But I want to try this because you said you can't taste it. I love Jillian. Can't wait to hear your results!

    1. No you can't, if you can it's vague and doesn't taste bad(to me at least!). I'm posting my results today :)

  5. I've tried this before and had about the same results as you. I'd been looking for this recipe, so I could do it again. Thanks!

  6. I've heard a few people talking about this now and everyone says it's really good.... think I might just have to try it for myself! :-)
