Has anyone tried this fast before? I'm hoping to start a ten day lemon fast after christmas, as I've gained some weight in college that I would really love to lose and I figure this would be a great way to start a healthy eating habit. However, I have a few questions. I bought the cayenne pepper nice and fresh from a health store, but I'm having a problem with the syrup. The only grade B syrup I saw was in a small jug and was like $16.00. I really don't want to spend a ton of money, as the recipe calls for like a cup a day. So I'm just wondering what you did, or if there is anything I can substitute. I know someone mentioned honey, but I'm not sure if that would have the same effect. Also, did you do the tea and salt water thing? I really don't think I need to do that, so is it a vital part of the fast? I'm not a big tea drinker, but I guess I could suck it up for ten days. Also, the fresh lemons are a whole lot of money at the grocery store, but I'm going to try a place like cosco or sam's club. Where would you suggest getting lemons from? Thanks! Any tips or suggestions are appreciated!
