    I was told by a few friends that this helps weigh loss if you drink it in the morning, is this true?

    It won't help you lose weight but it is a good way to kick start your body in the morning - cleansing for the liver and digestive system! I drink this throughout the day xx

    SW is a healthy and excellent weight loss plan, everything else is just a fab or a myth!

    hot water and lemon is a great detoxifyer and a good start to the day. It will give your metabolism a boost so in that sense the answer could be yes. Swapping any of your regular cups of tea or coffee for herbal teas (particularly green, red or white tea) or hot lemon water will make you feel much better and surpress your appetite a little

    Don't know if it is a myth or not, but I have read that it is good to maintain a good complexion.

    I've heard this too, and I am a strong believer that drinking tons and tons of water full stop will help with losses and also clear the skin, keep you regular in the toilet department, flush out toxins and keep you energised!X

    Hot water with lemon is great. The lemon helps remove fat deposits in your digestive system and gives your metabolism a kickstart :) xx

    yep i can vouch for that, a big slice of lemon in hot water first thing in the morning DOES help - its not a miracle and you wont suddenly loose 10lbs but it does clear your skin and detox your system somewhat ..

    i usually had 2 / 3 mugs in the morning before my breakfast then if i fancied tea/coffee/diet coke i would just have them. Give it a go for a week or so, you'll notice a difference!! :D
