Oh yeah before I forget Pnkrckpixikat, tell me about the lemon water, how much do you drink and is it fresh lemon or bottled? You also mentioned coffee.. you aren't putting the lemon in the coffee are you? :?: I read that cranwater (1 ounce 100% unsweetened cranberry juice to 7 oz water) flushes out water weight too. I drink that sometimes. Though it's quite sour and my face shows it when I drink it.:lol3:

Edited to add - Way to go Matisse, Keep it up!

pnkrckpixikat
07-24-2013, 03:27 PM
AGGGHHHHH NO LEMON IN COFFEE!!! ewwwww:tired: never heard about the cranberry juice. For lemon water I have lemon juice in a bottle that I add in my diet cokes, I figured I would just add a couple tablespoons or something to a bottle of water. IDK if that is too little or enough or what, Sue mentioned lemon water a couple days ago so I figured why not lemon up my water to give my coffee method an additional boost. Maybe we should poke her and ask what a good ratio is? Or i suppose I could google if she doesn't answer. I'd rather trust her then complete unknowns yaknow?

ETA: maybe it is supposed to be the same ratio as the cranberry water?

pnkrckpixikat

hmmmm... what about pineapple/pineapple juice? it is supposed to help reduce swelling...

Matisse
07-24-2013, 03:35 PM
I do not want to contradict anyone, but an espresso with a lemon peel is a classic. The zesty oils marries well with the earthy flavours of the coffee beans. I would not have it everyday like that but it's a worthy variation. It's also very good if you decide to chill your espresso (no added milk or cream then).

We'll see what Sue says about lemon water. Cranwater is part of the fat flush diet though I've never tried that diet. I just read where someone here said cranwater flushes out toxins and can get rid of cellulite!! So I got a couple of bottles of the juice and I make cranwater sometimes. It can't hurt to try.
I have never heard of lemon in coffee, Matisse. I do like coffee and usually have a cup or two a day lately.

hmmm lemon in coffee, interesting, i guess it makes sense... but i use milk so still no lemon coffee for my, it would make the milk curdle lol

cranwater gets rid of cellulite!!! I call BS since cellulite is just pockets of empty skin from what I understand lol but I have heard about the toxin thing, maybe Ill give it a try... I like lemon juice since it is practically 0 cals its like 5 cals for 1/2 cup or something crazy like that so since i use maybe a teaspoon a day i dont bother counting it

Yeah Ninae ! Down a lb... Oh Good!!!! I am thinking you are showing us how to do it! and Matisse Yeah for you too!!

pixikat and Only Believe... :LOL you 2 crack me up! Tho that coffee with the lemon peel sounds interesting.... I just squeeze a lemon (about a 5th of a lemon) in water and put alittle Pinky stuff in it (sorta sugar free lemonade)... Tho I was told (on a vacation in the Caribbean a few years ago not to use any kind of sweetner) but the lemon water does help shed water!!! I just forget about it sometimes (and I can't afford lemons right at this time and noone has a tree nearby for me to pilfer! lol) But it worked again for me!!! Down another 1/2 today Yah!

Hey ladies- about the lemon water- I don't go a day without filling my water bottle with a few slices if lemon or lime and a couple slices of cucumber! It's delicious and makes water weight and bloating disappear! Even during the dread TOM! I just keep refilling my bottle throughout the day with water and it lasts me the day:)

Hello Mountain Mama,

Lemon will only be good in an espresso. Preferably one with crema (the beige froth on top of it. It means the grind and blend are just right.) Also, you need a citrus zester to take only the yellow part of the zest. This way, the white bitter part is out which you do not want since coffee is already bitter. This is also why you do not want lemon juice since coffee is already acidic. The oils, sweetness and tang of the yellow zest though add something to the cup.

It's a nice diversion after a fancy meal instead of dessert. Or for an afternoon energy boost while everyone else is having a cocktail.

OK, I confess to being a coffee geek. :o

:yikes:yep, wannaskipandlaugh you need some lemon water. I must tell you it does work! I probably went over on my calories yesterday and I still lost .2
I drank about 2 and a half glasses of lemon water. The first one was wayyyyy too sour. The second one was too soft (no no not soft that's the 3 bears story) the second one was very good.. who would have thought I'd ever like lemon and water without sugar? Well that was so good I threw in the rest of the lemon from the second one and left it in the fridge.. oh my it was terrible. We need a gag and faint smiley.

Here's a face for you.:kickbutt: Get back to losing woman! I need a cup of :coffee: I may put lemon in it. :p

Good morning or I suppose afternoon now lol I slept in hence the late post.

Sue time for lemon water! you don't have to buy fresh lemon I use the bottle they sell in the salad area or in the juice area of the store. just make sure it says 100% lemon juice.

punkrock woot! it budged for you! hoorah! but not as much as it budged for me :p keep it up before I win!

mountain mama or should I say mad mountain mama? running around like a mad woman lol no worries the scale will be there tomorrow!

So yesterday i had 2 bottles of water with lemon, AND a bottle of water with LIME JUICE. Fancy-smancy! I had that one on my walk/jog excursion and it was so refreshing a mile and a half down the road in 95 degree heat! I may try some mint next time though. and the results are....

Thank you for the cheering, dancing carrot, Only Believe!

I am not sure if you want the answer to your question.

Poutine is my national dish. It may sound disgusting, but do not diss it unless you have tried it.

First of all you need fresh cheddar cheese curds that make this sound "squick, squick". This cheese is usually made daily and often kept at room tempertaure. It's pretty hard to find outside Québec, but apparently you can find them in Northeastern USA. Here, they are ubiquitous. Every corner store has them. It looks like this.

http://www.fromageriestfidele.net/images/produits/cheddar_grains.jpg

Then you need golden, not too greasy fries. You put the steaming hot fries in a bowl, add a generous amount of cheese curds and a delicious brown sauce which melts the cheese a little further. I like mine with plenty of black pepper.

It looks like this.

http://fbimprovisation.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/poutine.jpg

There are many variation of this dish including high end ones. In fact, a local chef won Iron chef America with a lobster poutine.

This is the dish to eat at 4 AM after the bars close, but not exactly if you want to lose weight. ;-)

Only Believe
07-28-2013, 08:04 PM
I bet Poutine is delicious! :drool:
The only cheese curds I've had is the fried cheese curds from Culvers. Only been there once but the food was very good! :hungry:
Why can't the good stuff be calorie free? :(

I personally don't like more pictures of food in a thread where we are trying to lose weight. Have fun people, don't get serious about my comment. That's just me. I need all the help I can get.

So, up .4 lbs since the start. :shrug:. I bet Mountain Mama and JazzyPeggy are afraid I am going to snatch this.

It's discouraging since I have been doing so well on food (even erring on the side of too little) and exercise, but my intestines can't seem to function out of their routine. I also felt dehydrated in the last days, so I have been chugging water even at night which does not help for my morning weigh in.

Rome was not built in one day, or a week, or a month and neither will my new body.

Sorry, ladies. Someone else needs to win this one, unless I have another big woosh.

Bravo Mountain Mama! Well done!

I was back to 150 lbs this morning. Do you guys ever do these challenges based on weight percentage? You still would have beat me solidly but it would be more of a playing field?

Example : whoever loses 2 % body weight the fastest?
