Must say the first time was successful for me, people noticed I was losing weight I simply started my day with the juice and drank a little before each meal. It did everything it was supposed to do. Unfortunately I stopped but this time I want to stick. Keep you up on my progress. :-)

    I made mine a little different; I took a large gallon pitcher( for room to stir), 2 large lemons, with peelings on. Sliced them, then put lemons in a bowl, then put them into microwave for 2 minutes, or until peelings are very soft and lots of juice has formed. Take a 1/2 gal. size bottle of 100% grapefruit juice, pour it all into gal, container, pour in lemons with juice. Put in 1/4 cup of honey, or a (little more if to sour.) Blend slightly, or (stir very well.) Pour equal amounts into freezable 8 oz. size cups or (I can’t believe it’s not butter cups) after (used and cleaned.) Store in freezer, Bring out a cup as needed, thaw out, sip on through out the day. Save some small size empty water bottles. They are perfect for packing in lunch bag or such. To take where ever you go.

  13. I have got grapefruit juice in box and grounded ginger in jar are they ok to use and how much also do you scoop flesh out of lemons or just squeeze juice …thank you

    Hi Carol, that should be OK – just check those use-by dates. Just squeeze, but add flesh if you wish.
