I'm curious if anyone has tried Jillian Michaels' water detox?
If you have, was it beneficial?
Does it help reduce bloating and water weight?
Any input, suggestions or comments are more than welcome!

From what I researched you should eat properly while drinking the water. There is no way I would want to deprive my body of natural nutrients and just drink this water for 7 days haha!

For those of you who are curious what the water detox is, here is some information:

Totally not funny, someone might actually try this.
February 15, 2012 5:25 PM
I've never heard of this. Curious as to what others say.

I did it! It's not bad, it tastes like bitter tea. You drink like 64 oz a day, I think? I drink a LOT of water every day so it wasn't a problem for me. You do it WHILE eating a balanced diet, it's not intended to be a fast. I did it right when I started watching calories and working out in September last year. I didn't notice a lot of change in my body from the drink, honestly, but the ingredients are healthy and I didn't mind the taste, so it was basically just some extra hydration.

My sister and I did the Lemonade cleanse a few months ago. Cleanses like this are not for losing weight. Yes, we lost 8-10 pounds each but we both gained it back in the next two weeks. I used it as a kick start to my new diet and weight loss journey because I knew from the beginning I would most likely gain everything back.

Did it feel like it was cleaning you out? Or did it affect you like plain water?

Funny, I never heard of it either, but then I heard about it twice today. You are supposed to drink it as well as have meals from what I understand. That is supposed to last 7 days & you are supposed to drink 64 oz of water a day so it's impossible to make it last for 7 days without having water as well.

All this does is help remove excess water bloat in your system. Personally, I'd take the water bloat & spend my time working the fat off & gaining muscle mass.

Note the comments people made on this page. They've tried this recipe: http://makemebeautifulblog.blogspot.com/2007/12/jillian-michaels-cranberry-drink-recipe.html

FYI: Dandelion is a natural diuretic

If you're consuming adequate amount of water everyday this is no need for this garbage

I'm really not sure why someone would do this. Regular water does the same thing!

NO NO NO

Here is why you shouldn't deprive your body of food on this scam of a "cleanse"

What?

Why waste your time on something that you admit will be completely pointless?

Instead of "kick starting" my diet, I just followed the MFP program. And guess what? I didn't gain back 8-10 pounds.

Agreed. I don't understand how losing weight and then gaining it back kickstarts a diet?

I don't understand why so many people think they are motorbikes that need kickstarted?

I did it last month during TOM to help with water retention that comes with the territory. It did help, but as other says the dandelion tea is a diuretic, but so it the cranberry and lemon.

I did it a lot more concentrated though. 8 oz of water with the cranberry juice, lemon juice and dandelion tea. It did help some. I didn't have as much bloating as usual as a result.

So it will stay as a something for that TOM.

In my opinion, Jillian Michaels is such a sellout now. She and Dr. Oz will sell anything that makes them money.

I've noticed most of the people against this seem to be ignoring the FACT that this is NOT a meal replacement....its just to help You remove excess water weight.. for me excess water weight is a constant issue due to a thyroid issue. If you maintain a healthy diet and use this recipe as a once in while assistant for water release then there is no harm done.. the key being maintain a healthy diet in the process. It is more effective than water...but not intended to replace water on a daily basis. Stay healthy and good luck to all on your journeys.

I don't really see the point. Water weight will come and go its just one of those things.

QFT...sounds like a scam to me, but this is the first I've heard of it. Just drink lots of water and eat healthy, your body knows what to do....no need complicating things or wasting money.
