I found the slimdown drink online yesterday and bought grapefruit juice. I can't stand the grapefruit! It says to use grapefruit juice because of the vitamin C. Has anyone tried this? I was thinking that orange juice might work as well.

Just forget about the gimmicks. Eat at a deficit.

ETA: If people put as much effort into losing weight the proper way as they do looking for quick fixes they would already be half way there.

If it is endorsed by Dr. Oz, it is a fad/snake oil/ sensationalistic crap. Please do not follow anything that sellout quack doc says and find a different source of nutritional information. If you want a swimsuit body, do a calorie deficit, some cardio and some weight training. Besides lipo, it's the only way to achieve it. Not some goofy drink endorsed by (insert random celebrity here).

Its not quack my mother used to do this and had success, its healthy . Something in grape fruit helps to burn fat I find pineapple works too. Calorie deficit doesn't work for me been doing that for years and just doesn't work.

Then you're doing it wrong (unless you've been to a REAL doctor and have been officially diagnosed with some type of medical condition). It's a very simple formula: calories in v. calories out. A lot of people on here (including me for a while) are not eating enough calories. Here's a good starting point to determine the number of calories you'll need to eat to lose: http://scoobysworkshop.com/calorie-calculator/

There's no fast fix pill, drink, soup, etc.

Only if you chase it with a green coffee bean detox.

Please see this thread, http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/925772-fat-flush-water

How it works is this:
It makes you drink more water because it tastes delicious. End.




Drink more water, hold onto less water weight. Sounds counter intuitive. The more you drink, the less water you hold onto.
Doesn't remove fat, but the scale may go down.

If it looks like a duck, and it acts like a duck and it sounds like a duck... it's a quack.

Coffee enemas must be twice as good if you use green coffee enemas, right?

Then you haven't been at a deficit, or you have an unresolved medical issue. If you've been yo-yo dieting for years then that could be your problem. But this drink is not going to fix the problem. It's not going to hurt you, but it's not going to make you lose weight either.

Swimsuit Slimdown Drink you say?


Step right up folks. I have the elixir of life. It brought my mammy back from the grave and made my little sister a model in France.

It's horrible that people keep bashing these Dr. Oz miracle products, and instead push people to drink more water. It's like they don't even realize how dangerous water IS!

This PDF explains it all: http://www.dhmo.org/msds/MSDS-DHMO-Kemp.pdf

Then you're doing it wrong.

Sorry, not to sound snarky, but eating at a deficit will *absolutely* result in weight loss. You're likely eating more than you think you are. The other option is your deficit is way too huge and you've jacked up your metabolism.
