Yesterday on Yahoo news page they had a write up on ways to get back on track. They said to drink boiled water with lemon slices.for water retention. I tried it and it really worked, I spent alot of time in the bathroom and the scale was down this morning. I kept a cup of 3-4 lemon slices available all day and would fill it with water and stick it in the microwave. I must have drank at least 5 cups along with my normal amount of water. Its really good and goes down easy.This would be good when doing the 5dpt also.  Hope this helps, Debra

Lemon juice in water also helps to prevent kidney stones too because of the citric acid.  We had a urologist come in to speak to us at our WLS support group and that was his recommendation - 1 ounce of lemon juice in water a couple of times a day. Kathy

I drink boiled water all the time now.  I gave up hot tea and coffee a couple of months ago when I did the 5 day plan and had such withdrawals fomr the caffeine I decided to stick with ho****er for the most part.  I do enjoy a latte from time to time as an occassional treat though. I am going to add lemon now after reading your post - thanks.  Interesting reading

I have an aunt who will swear that lemon water shrinks your stomach...and she's been saying that since I was a kid!  I wonder if the True Lemon packets will work the same?  Lemons are getting pretty pricey and the local Albertson's had the packets on clearance--so I bought everyone I could find!

I would think lemon juice would work the same.

TrueLemon is a powder packet made from lemons with added maltodextrin.

Do you think homemade fresh lemonade would work?
