Lose 5lbs in 7 Days??

Jillian Michael's
Jillian Michael's Detox Drink is going around on Pinterest and I so happen to come across and decided to give it a shot! This detox drink is said that you will lose 5lbs in 7 Days and it's a pretty simple regime.

To make this detox drink you need:
60oz (7.5 cups) of distilled water (tap works just fine)
1 Tbsp of 100% pure cranberry juice (no sugar added)
2 Tbsp of lemon juice
1 Dandelion Root Tea Bag
You make this concoction each day in a pitcher, drink it throughout the day and do this for 7 days in a row. I filled my pitcher with hot water and let the dandelion root tea bag simmer for at least an hour before I added in the other ingredients. It has a boring bitter taste but you quickly get use to that and it eventually teases your taste-buds into thinking it's good ;) It definitely gets your system on track and regulates your insides lol but I'm sad to say I didn't lose the said 5lbs...I lost a max of one and that could just be natural weight fluctuation. I peed like crazy after the first 2days so I'm surprised water weight didn't melt off of me...But my body feels slimmer and less heavy so it must have done something :) It helped in decreasing the bloat feeling even though the scale never changed and that's good enough for me! One thing I do want to take away with me from trying this detox is I want to make sure I try to drink 60oz of water each and everyday..or at least close to it. I don't want to be peeing like crazy but I want to make sure I'm keeping my body hydrated daily
as it will help with skin aging and overall health anyways.

   Though I didn't lose the 5lbs, drinking Jillian Michael's Detox plan was worth trying out and I'd love to hear from those who have tried this too! 
Has it worked for you? Let me know!
