I normally ask for limes instead of lemons. Its a different flavor and if there is a bar at the restaurant they tend to have them.

After hearing about how many people touch those lemons at restaurants before they get served, I have been afraid to use them. But most people I know add them for flavor. I've soaked fruit in water before, but only at home.

Every day is *the day.* Dream it. Live it. Love it...with all your heart & soul.

I love my water and I do put lemons n mines when I'm out. I just love the flavor. I've also heard that it aid in cutting fat.

I've also heard that it is a diuretic. But mostly I just like the flavor. I don't drink as much water as I need if it's not citrus flavored.

Adding lemon to the water adds a little flavor to it, but I may have heard somewhere that lemon was a natural diuretic, but do not quote me on that. I usually don't bother with adding anything to water...it is good just the way it is. I do like it ICE COLD though, and I might add lemon at a restaurant..just because sometimes they bring lemon with it.

Not sure of the effects for others, I only do it at restaurants to add flavor to my water, since I don't do soda at all or tea often.

I see a lot of people's drinking water with lemon, or lemon water. What are the effects that you get from that? Also if you drink it how much do you drink a day?

If I can receive it... then I can believe it... and if I can believe it... then I can achieve it!!
