Great to see the article about water lemon. It's so true and great that you bring it to your readers attention. I actually lost 4.3Kg in just over a month (since mid Aug until now) by replacing meals with water and lemon slices. I also do a lot of exercise but when you want to loose weight, the quantity and quality of food accounts for 90% of the results. Sometimes I also put a slice of apple in a 600 ml glass of water and when I finish drinking the water I eat the lemon slice and the apple slice.
