I don't think it is -- I stick to Crystal Light Morning Sunrise or whatever it is called. I know has no sugar in it...

When P2 rolls around for you jenn, try it. Its good. HB might even like it too.
You can usually catch the 12-pks on sale at the grocery store. Amen for sales!!!

I love, love, love, the lemonade flavor, but DH does too! Anyway, the lemonaide is only 5 cal. and 0 g. Sugars (but 2 g. carbs) Just my 2cents.

You need to look at the ingredients. Make sure there is no fruit juice or anything else that is not allowed.

The drinks only contain 3% juice.

Bad if you are on Phase 1 and I believe any phase -- from what I remember reading, you should EAT fruit rather than drink the juice alone...

Dead on, Jenn1017! Beachgal would agree. Even a bit of fructose can trigger cravings and screw up detox.

Yeah...they look good, but they're not. Try to stay away from anything with corn syrup in it. It's a big trigger. Even sugar (or dextrose) is a better ingredient.

That said, (this is me trying to be more understanding... ), the lemonade flavors have a bit of acid in them, and that might be enough to slow the rate that the juice and syrup are absorbed. If you have already had the lemonade one and it didn't give you cravings (be honest with yourself!), it might be okay. Obviously that's a personal thing.
