    My consultant has being going on and on about having a glass of hot water in the morning to boost weight loss. I haven't tried it yet as to be honest to me it sounds abit silly and not all that pleasant. But she swears by it and says the all the people how have tried it have had bigger losses. It's meant to get your digestive system working and up your metabolism. Has anyone ever heard of it, tried it, or even heard it to help?

    Should I be more open minded and try it or is my consultant just talking even more rubbish (I'm not getting on well with her right now)

    I've heard that hot water and lemon is meant to be good when detoxing, so don't suppose it could do you any harm trying it. Good luck x

    I've heard of hot water and lemon. It probably fills you up so you eat less breakfast lol.

    I drink this every morning its nice and refreshing, and I can honestly say that I do notice a difference between weeks I havent had it

    I usually get up and boil kettle then when I come down for breakfast its at just the right temp to drink I have it with lemon, I like it ut I have been drinking it well before I started sw to :)

    its worth a try

    Yes it works!

    A friend of mine drinks it all day at work and tells me it is good for digestion and "toiletting":eek:

    I tried it and it does work. Not boiling hot though as that would be silly, but hot water does work. Tastes quite boring though.

    Do you get the same effect with lemon juice (e.g. jif) as you do from a fresh lemon?

    Sorry if this sounds a bit stupid :p

    I have done quite a few weeks of hot water and lemon and I did seem to have better losses those weeks. I quite like it actually. I'm going to do it for the rest of this week and see how I get on. I don't think it makes any difference using fresh lemon or 'jif'. I used both. It takes a bit of working out how much jif to put in so you get it to taste okay but not too sharp.

    I'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to boost losses. It's meant to be something to do with getting your digestive system up and working early in the day. I also find it, erm, helps clear things out of your system quite quickly LOL.

    I also drink hot water on it's own quite often from even before I started doing SW. It tastes odd at first but now I find it really refreshing.

    I want to try this but I can't stand plain water as it is. Reading up on it sounds like it's a good idea. Maybe I should hold my nose and glug it down!x
