Ive been drinking water with lemon and honey for 1 whole last week.Here's what i did;
1.5 liter of water ,2 TABELSPOON of pure lemon juice and 1 TEASPOON of honey.I'll shake the mixture and drink it throughout the day.I didnt notice anything at all on my skin.Maybe i felt lil hydrated dats it.
Now, for a change,Im thinking of taking a warm glass of water every morning wt lemon and honey, instead of drinking it thruout the day
Btw, i read some articles that honey is somewhat similar to sugar and it might make us to put on weight?

What do you ladies think of my routine?Has anyone done this before?Any other stuff i can replace like ACV?

Honey is made from a kind of sugar (frutose if i'm not mistaken) and it has many calories, so it can make you put on some weight

But why you're drinking warm water , with lemon and honey?

That's what I drink for when I'm sick. And that's what it's mainly used for that I know of. Warm water, lemon and honey.

It helps soothe the throat and if you put your face over the steam, it helps open up your nasal cavity to breath better... but never heard anything for loosing weight.

Water and lemon might be more beneficial alone.

Daily Fit Tip: Enjoy hot water with lemon and honey

Posted: Dec 5th 2006 6:00AM by Jennifer Jordan
Filed under: Alternative Therapies, General Health, Healthy Habits, Vegetarian, Healthy Recipes, Daily Fit Tip

Yep, you read that right. Hot water with honey and lemon. Sounds boring, doesn't it? Bland perhaps? Faceless when compared with its flashier cousin tea? Paltry when compared with its biggest rival, coffee? Well, perhaps. But this combo stands on its own, and I can promise if you try it you'll be surprised just how enjoyable it truly is.

This concoction made its way into my life several times. My husband, who was seeing an acupuncturist for eczema, a condition affecting the epidermis in the form of a red, itchy rash that can form all over your body, brought home a bunch of lemons along with some other more questionable items from the local Chinese grocer. The acupuncturist suggested having at least a cup a day of hot water with lemon -- lots and lots of lemon, as much, in fact, as my husband could tolerate -- in conjunction with some other recommendations in order to cure his eczema.

Never one in favor of caffeine, and even less a fan of our homemade coffee, I decided to join my husband in his morning ritual of imbibing a cup of steaming hot water with lemon. It sounded bland, it sounded boring, but at least it was something different.

It took several trisd before I figured out the preferable lemon juice to water combination but once I did I was shockingly hooked. It really wasn't that bad. In fact, it was rather uncomplicated and soothing, like having a hot beverage when you feel ill to make yourself feel better only without the illness.

After a short time, I decided that since I was treating myself rather than eczema, I would experiment by adding other flavors, such as mint and even orange peel. These and other tastes were good, but the best combo proved to be a touch of honey. And I do mean a touch. Honey is better than sugar, yes, but it's still sugar, just in another form. So sample gingerly from the honey jar.

I tend to use organic lemons and organic honey, or at least honey from local farms. Right now I'm hooked on clover honey but have a feeling that one I saw infused with lavender might be just the ticket for these cold winter months.

Although I don't have eczema, I've noted other benefits of this drink that can be enjoyed by all. It has no caffeine, virtually no calories, and offers some vitamin C from the citrus. Depending on your tolerance for lemon juice, it might be a drink you could enjoy throughout the day, although I limit my intake to one strong cup in the morning simply because I am not at all sure how much lemon juice is good for a person. I also noted one online source citing this drink as an all-natural cure for the common cold and flu and another vegetarian source citing it as a digestive tonic. Again, whether or not these theories have been proven is debatable (as are most things these days) but my philosophy is that it's all natural, so it can't hurt.

In case you were wondering, my husband's eczema cleared up. Whether or not it had to do with the hot water with lemon and honey is anyone's guess, but it was an enjoyable experiment.

interesting. If you want to lose weight though, you might as well stick to plain water, it will fill you up and then you wont eat so much.

That's basically what all these drinking diet thingies are doing. The more you drink, the less you'll eat, is the theory

but hey, lemon and honey sounds better than plain water to me

Yeah, but i imagine it won't help you losing weight - after all, honey is sweet and has a kind of sugar on it.

But harm won't do, i think - and as Rosie said, tastes better than regular water I'd rather drink it cold (it's too hot here )

you all know i live to go off on things i know a little about right? so here we go:
WHY HONEY IS SO GREAT AND WHY YOU ARE DOING YOUR BODY A HUGE SERVICE BY DRINKING HONEY/LEMON AND WATER!!!

honey is made up of 20%water, so in comparison, honey has less sugar than sugar alone. and depending on where you get your honey, it definitely has other benefits to it as well, mainly being a great antioxidant (the darker the honey the better for you), and a MILD laxative because of it's antimicrobial agents (which is prob where the help maintaining weight thing comes into place as well being used for soar throats)

if you are taking a teaspoon of honey a day, you wont gain weight, if you are a normal active individual.

sugar itself has no value to it other than to make things sweet and add calories. two things that our bodies crave (sweet is the most basic taste- basically because as babies and children, we yearn for sweetness to provide us with needed energy, so we yearn for it, and carb calories- well that's just easy absorbed into our system because our bodies are primitive and work off the principle of storing for later). which is why candy and other sweets can be addictive.

i mentioned that honey has antimicrobial agents as well as antioxidants, and that's why honey makes such an awesome base to face masks.

just note for both internal and external use of honey- be sure to get dark, organic raw honey, commercial honey is heat treated and eliminates 70-80% of it's value. raw unpasteurized honey actually has HIGHER antibacterial properties.

the town next to me used to have a Honey and Wine festival, and since i am a huge wino, i have gone every year. and my local farmer's market sells the worlds best clover and orange honey ever.

So go ahead- don't skip the honey! oh- and mix the honey in luke warm or under temperature water or you lose the benefits!!!!!

A lot of models drink a glass of warm water with lemon in the morning to kickstart metabolism. I haven't heard of adding honey to it though.

Drinking enough water throughout the day and cutting down on soft drinks will also help...

You heard it right dear. Honey is the best home remedy for obesity and cholesterol control as it metabolizes extra fat deposited in the body and the released energy is used for normal body functions and also purifies the blood. It also works as a digestive tonic for those with digestion problems.

I always try to buy dark, organic honey and have a teaspoon everyday. The warm water with lemon is a great kick start to my morning. It feels like it cleanses and hydrates me.

My favourite cure for a cold is hot water, honey, lemon, a clove, and a dash of whisky. Amazing. Almost worth getting a cold for :)

Warm water with honey and lemon is an Indian/Ayurvedic version of maple syrup,lemon drink.It curbs appetite when sipped slowly and is an excellent source of various vitamins.Would suggest it to have it on empty stomach,first thing in the morning & or whenever u feel like binging on junk :) worked well for me..had lost around 10 pounds doing this during my teans :)

of course you will put on weigt. honey is a kind of sugar, thus it contains many high calories. on the other hand, it is nourishing and it is very good for ladies. if you are not afraid of putting on weight, just drink it.
