Yesterday I mentioned that I am back to drinking lemon waters in the morning. Some of you asked what benefit I get from it other than my water having a flavor. I decided it would be a great post topic.
With anything, what I am about to say could be considered hokum or poppycock by some. However, there have been many studies and claims on the subject. I also believe that sometimes if you believe in something, then it works for you too!

Some have asked how much lemon to use? I did some research and it looks to be based on weight. If you are 150 pounds or less, you use half a lemon. If you are over 150 pounds you want to use an entire lemon.
Now if that isn’t enough reason to start, I really don’t know what is folks! Are you going to try this? I would love to hear your thoughts after a week or so. I have been telling everybody to do this.
