In this post I’m going to cover how to make lemon water and the benefits of drinking lemon water.  One of the best daily practices that I follow is drinking a glass of freshly squeezed lemon water first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach).

I want to personally challenge every one of you to adopt this practice for 28 days. After the 28 days, come back to this page and tell me how you feel in the comment box. I know what you’re thinking…but I always drink coffee as soon as I get up. Well, I’m not telling you that you can’t drink coffee. I’d just like you to postpone that cup of coffee for 30 minutes. If you want a simple and inexpensive way to improve the way you feel and look, take the 28 Day Lemon Water Challenge. Why 28 days? Because that’s how long it takes to form any habit. And I’m confident after you feel the positive effects of this simple practice, it will easily become a part of your daily routine for the rest of your life.

Here’s How To Make Lemon Water:

1. Wake up.

2. Go straight to the kitchen and pour a glass of room temperature water (if you have digestive problems, use hot water).

3. Cut a lemon in half (don’t use bottled lemon juice as it can contain sulphites which a lot of people are allergic to).

4. Squeeze the juice of the lemon directly into the glass of water. Water should turn cloudy.

4. Drink.

5. Repeat the next morning, etc.

I told you this was going to be simple. But why am I doing this?

Health Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water

Here are 5 health benefits of drinking lemon water:

1. Helps Liver Eliminate Toxins and Waste Products: the liver has various roles in the body including detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of bio chemicals to aid in proper digestion. Lemon water increases the livers detoxifying enzymes and helps the liver carry out these functions more efficiently.

2. Lemon Water is Alkalizing: the body functions best in a more alkaline state andcancer cells tend to breed in an acidic body. Unfortunately due to the foods most people eat, the things they expose their skin to, and the environment they live in, most people’s body’s are very acidic. Lemons are very alkalizing to the body and blood (although lemons are actually an acidic fruit).

3. Rich Source of Vitamins and Minerals: rich in vitamin C (anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, & helps immune system), vitamin B (energy production), riboflavin (tissue repair, growth, & development) and minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium (these minerals all help build strong bones & teeth).

4. Terrific for Skin Care: Lemon water can act as an anti-aging remedy by removing wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Your skin can’t look healthy if your body is holding onto toxins.

5. Good for Weight Loss: Lemon water can help burn fat faster. When the liver is full of toxins it can’t metabolize fats as efficiently.

These are just a few reasons to take the 28 Day Lemon Water Challenge.

Don’t postpone taking this simple challenge. Implementing this into your daily routine can bring major positive changes to your overall health.

Other Ways To Add More Lemon 

You can increase the nutritional content and add tons of flavor to your meals (especially chicken, fish, and as a vinaigrette over salads) by replacing the sugary, belly busting sauces with lemons. Adding lemons to water also adds flavor which can cause you to choose to drink water more often (we all know the importance of staying hydrated).

Go to the recipes page to find healthy recipes that use lemons.

    hi Brad!
    i did this challenge and i was so amazed with the results. My friends always told me that i look different. And they love my skin nowadays. I used to have acne before and now i have clear skin. I noticed also that even i dont exercise, im losing almost one pound every week.
    i definitely continue this morning routine.

  8. Debi says:

    I just started this morning ritual, and I was curious if you can drink that through out the day, not just the morning. Another curiosity I had is, would a teaspoon of honey be beneficial. Thank you ver much in advance if you respond :-)

  13. Yinka says:

    I started taking Lemon with warm water this morning. But can it reduce my tummy fat? If not, what can i do to reduce it?

    • Steven says:

      I’m sorry Yinka but there is only one solution to this and that is eat healthy and exercise more. We all wish that there was a magic solution but unfortunately the above is the reality.

  14. Carol says:

    Why don’t you use a straw to drink the water and lemon to save the enamel of your teeth?

  15. Elaine says:

    I take a probiotic every morning…how long should I wait before drinking the lemon juice? Or maybe I should take the lemon juice first….how long should I wait to take the probiotic?

  16. Cle says:

    Can I put the lemon juice in cold water? Does it have to be room temp?.

  17. Knut says:

    Drinking lemon water is a good thing I believe too. But the acid erodes the esophagus and the stomach lining and you can develop acid reflux or GERD…what is your opinion about that?

    • Gramma Kaye says:

      This is a concern of mine as well, especially since my sister passed away from esophageal cancer. When I first began drinking lemon water years ago, I would get a burning sensation in my throat a few minutes later. I now make it a habit to swish my mouth with filtered or bottled water right after drinking lemon water, and also take two swallows of plain water to rinse my esophagus. Since I’ve been doing this, I no longer have any problems, so I believe it’s helping.

    • Rox says:

      I have acid reflux on the verge of gerd and since taking lemon water daily the past two weeks, I haven’t been sick nearly as often from when i was not taking the lemon water. I’m not saying this has helped me with my acid reflux, but it has not got worse.

  18. Ashley says:

    Hi, I know this is a bit late but I just saw this now, and I am planning to try this out. I was just wondering if it would be okay for me to drink the lemon water in the morning and also drink nopalinaza plus at night. Would it be unhealthy for my body to drink those two things?

  22. Lellane says:

    Hello Mr. Brad,

    I love drinking lemon water but my problem early morning is I cant reach into 30 mins before I eat my breakfast due to my work so it only 15 mins. is that ok or its better to drink before bed time

  23. Carmen says:

    can you just put the lemons inside without squeezing

  24. Catherine Elliott says:

    This is kind of odd. I have end stage liver disease and over the last few months I have been CRAVING lemon, not the stuff in a bottle, only fresh lemons taste right. I squirt it into water, add to juices, cook with it and perk up anything I think lemon can go with. I have been very careful sticking to a whole foods diet and thought maybe thats why I have been feeling better. Could be my lemon addiction!

  25. Cindy says:

    Hi Brad,

    Already into my fourth week of “Warm Lemon Water” Challenge……. It really feels great doing this……… Feel energized and detoxified everyday and my skin definitely looks and feels better….. It’s true about lemon improving the skin….. Wrinkles are fading away and tell tale signs of aging on the skin are disappearing naturally…. I love lemon and what it can do to improve your health…. Triple thumbs up!!! Thank you Brad for this challenge…..

  26. Christina says:

    I knew drinking lemon water was good for you so I started drinking it 5 days ago. I have already started feeling more energized and can tell that it is cleaning the toxins out of my liver and such. I decided to look up the benefits and stumbled across this website. I now plan to try out this 28 day challenge and will post again to let you know how I feel!

  27. Natalie says:

    Great info in this article! I recently wrote an article on this too which you can view here if you’re interested

  28. Paul says:

    I haven’t tried this “challenge”, but I do mix i na lemon with a bottle of water (600ml) every second day or so for when I’m working out. I can safely say it gives me more energy for my workout but the taste alone is good enough for me! sour :D

  29. Dani says:

    Hey Brad,
    I enjoy intermittent fasting & exercising first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Would you still recommend drinking the lemon juice first thing in the morning? Or do you think I can drink it after exercising?

    Lastly: if one is also taking probiotics, which comes first? As both need to be taken on an empty stomach.

  30. rj says:

    Hi brad..
    Iam 27yrs old n my weight is 65kg. Doctor says hv to lose 15 kg. Past 1 month going to gym..but there is no change in weight loss instead my fat content increased. I hv tried honey with warm water fr a result.
    Will lemon n water reduce my fat..Frm tmrw ill start hving lemon with water..

  31. Jacquie says:

    Hi Brad, I’m very committed to doing this, it seems like a pretty easy thing to do. Just wondering if you can overdo lemon water. I’ve heard that it’s a good habit to drink lemon water before bed as well. What about in your water bottle at the gym? Is there a threshold I should be concerned about? It seems there is now some controversy about levels of vitamin c, does it flush through your system or can there be toxic levels? Thx!

    shall we add sugar?……

  44. I’m leaving on a plane tonight to go to Ireland and want to know if I can bring some bodybuilding supplements. I put whey protein, creatine monohydrate, and a pre-workout into separate plastic bags and labeled them accordingly. Am I allowed to do this? None of the ingredients are banned in Ireland from what I can tell.

  45. Lori says:

    I used lemon juice which worked wonderful. Is this ok to use?

    • Carol says:

      he has said no lemon juice from a bottle – didn’t you hear? Use the natural lemon from a tree that is found in the grocery,
