Here I am again reviewing another Detox Water... I think I have become the "Mikey" of trying these crazy Pinterest diets and detox waters. Remember those Life cereal commercials from your childhood where the cereal bowl keeps being past down the line and no one wants to try the cereal themselves but they urge "Mikey" to try it. Well consider me your "Mikey" I'll take on all these viral Pinterest crazes and give you my humble honest opinion.
So back to the task at hand the Jillian Michael's Detox Water. This one has had a somewhat shady back story apparently it was adopted by an "Anorexic Supporters" group... So if you poke around and read any of the comments you'll see a lot of negativity. I AM NOT Anorexic nor could I ever be or want to be and it is a serious issue and anyone battling this needs to seek help! It is not a healthy lifestyle. I support detox waters as an aide in helping in healthy weight loss. OK Politics aside this actually is a very effective detox water. Here is the recipe...
Jillian Michael's Detox Water
60 ounces Purified Water
2 TBS Diet Cranberry Juice
2 TBS Lemon Water
1 Bag Dandelion Tea - Stewed ( I found my tea at Walmart in the beverage isle near the crystal light)
This is a replacement of normal water intake and not a meal replacement!!
Dandelion tea has a history and reputation for breaking down fat and removing it from your body via good old fashioned waste... So you may have increased bowel movements so be prepared for this.
Now for the part you have been waiting for... Does it work?!?? My opinion is it does! I just added the ingredients to my gallon jug of water that I drink daily and chugged away! It does have a somewhat acquired taste. The first day I had to force myself to chug it.. But after a bit I got used to the taste. I see a few others added stevia and splenda to theirs to help sweeten it up. Not sure if I would like that, but wanted to throw it out as an option if you are struggling to get the drink down. After a couple days I saw a visible decrease in excess "bloating" around my middle. Gotta love that!! It definitely cleaned me out. (I tried thinking of a classy way of saying this... ) I would recommend this after a week of indulgence, to help get you back on track and loose the vacation pounds you may have gained or to slim down before a big event.
It does receive my stamp of approval!!! For all you "How I Met Your Mother" Fans I am hoping my stamp has the same level of clout as Lily's does...
