Try the 21 Day Lemon Water Challenge to boost your health and feel great all day long!
Ready to join me in a 21 Day Lemon Water Challenge???
It might seem like drinking lemon water is trendy, but it’s not.
The practice of drinking lemon water is 5,000 years old. It’s been part of the Ayurvedic tradition (yoga’s sister science) for centuries.
What’s the magic of lemon water?
Key nutrients from the lemon juice helps skin look younger while boosting immunity.
In addition, it detoxes your digestive tract (which can result in weight loss!)

The only way to truly test the benefits of drinking lemon water is to actually try it and see the results for yourself.
21 Day Lemon Water Challenge
For 21 days, upon rising, mix the juice of 1/4 to 1/2 lemon with a cup of warm water, drop the squeezed lemon in, and drink.
The recommended amount is the full 1/2 lemon. But if that is too expensive, start with a 1/4.
Do this before you brush your teeth, before you sip your coffee, and before you eat.
Optional: add a pinch of sea salt and/or a 1/2 teaspoon of honey
This drink is meant to flush the kidneys and stimulate your digestive system so it is ready to metabolize breakfast.
This is why you are meant to drink it immediately upon rising.
You are setting your body up for success.
The Purpose of the Lemon Water Challenge:
I’m a die hard coffee drinker. The alarm goes off and my first thought is of dragging my tired booty over to the coffee pot. Reaching for a lemon will require a change in a 23 year coffee habit.
Perhaps you are worried about lemon water before coffee too?
Whatever your morning habit is, the goal of this challenge is to make a glass of warm lemon water our new normal.
Let’s hold each other accountable. In the name of health.
Start by commenting on this post that you are up to the 21 Day Lemon Water Challenge.
Then grab your bag of lemons (preferably organic since the lemon will be dropped into the water) and get started! No need to wait for a Monday. Just start!
Next, use the hashtag #NGM21DayChallenge on your Instagram, Twitter or Facebook posts.
On the last day of the month, I will randomly pick someone who has used the hashtag to win a bottle of lemon essential oil.
Here’s to a healthy future for us all.
*CHEERS* and lemon water bottoms up!
