I DARE You to Drink This for 3 Days, and Tell Me What Happens to the Scale…

I DARE You to Drink This for 3 Days, and Tell Me What Happens to the Scale…

Earlier this evening I posted this picture onto social media and challenged my friends to try the drink for 3 days and see what happens. The photo blew up with people wanting to accept my challenge, and the questions came pouring in like crazy.

So in order to simplify, I’m turning this into a blog post in order to answer all the questions that I was bombarded with.

First, the recipe…

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemon and Cayenne Colon Cleanse Recipe


  • 2 cups of lukewarm or hotΒ water (whichever you prefer)
  • 1-2 tspΒ apple cider vinegar (I will do up to 2 TB)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 drops of therapeutic grade lemon oil
  • Optional: 1-2 TB maple syrup to sweeten


Mix everything together, and drink before your meal.

For the purpose of this challenge, you should drink 3 glasses a day (before every meal) for 3 days.

~Common Questions~

Q: Can I substitute fresh squeezed lemon juice for the oil?

A: Yes you can. But, keep in mind that lemon juice is very acidic and is harmful to the enamel on your teeth. The lemon essential oil is easier on your teeth, and has more benefits because it is extracted from lemon peels.

If you do substitute, use 1/2 of a fresh-squeezed lemon.

Q: Can I use grapefruit essential oil instead?

A: Yes you can, and I do that regularly!

Q: I can’t handle the apple cider vinegar… it makes my stomach upset. What do I do?

A: Try using less of it, and work your way up to more over the course of the three days.

Q: Do I really have to do the cayenne pepper?

A: For the purpose of this dare, yes. πŸ˜‰

Q: How does this help with weight loss?

A: The apple cider vinegar contains pectin, which suppresses appetite. It will make you feel fuller and more satisfied. The acid in it helps with digestion, and ensures that you’re more likely to achieve thorough digestion of your food. It also reduces the amount of time that fats stay in the digestive tract, meaning they are less likely to be absorbed fully. Lemon oil and cayenne also work to suppress appetite, and flush the colon of toxins.

So basically, you’re giving yourself an amazing appetite suppressant as well as something that helps your body quickly digest and flush out toxins!

So are you ready to take my dare?

  1. In order to participate, leave your current weight in the comments below and also be sure to take a picture of yourself.
  2. Then after the 3 days are up, check your weight again and report here.
  3. Be sure to also take an after photo, so that you can see the visual change.

Ready to take my dare? Let’s put on our big britches and do this together!! #WeGotThis

P.S. If you do this, make sure you have permission from your doctor, mmmmkay? This is a sort of cleanse, and you will be detoxing and going to the bathroom… quite a bit. I’m not offering any medical advice with this post… just sharing something that has worked for me. πŸ˜€

Much love,

  1. Can you do this while breastfeeding? I am currently pregnant so o don’t want to do this now of course. But want to know if I can start once baby is born.

  2. Hi.. I’m doing this challenge, current weight is 194.5, as if 1/30/16. Thx Crystal!

  3. I accept this challenge and I weigh 266. Yes, I am totally ashamed to even type that. I have no excuses for weighing this much and I focusing on losing. Thank you for this challenge.

  4. So where are all the afters? Did everyone die?
    I’ve done the lemonade cleanse for 10 days. Like just water/lemon/cayanne/ maple syrup for 10 days and nothing else. One of the hardest dicuplined things over ever done. The first 3 days were sort brutal. I was very hungry all the time and became quite irratable, however that passed and then I started feeling really good and had a lot of energy. Those first 3 days for any non-food cleanse are always tough. my guess is that it’s a combination of your body getting used to not process food as much, the “toxins” actually leaving your body or getting jostled up. (I’d still like to know what these toxins are exactly). And then the next 7 days were a mixture of feeling really good and sorta hungry, but maybe I just mostly missed the act of eating. I found myself feeling pretty good by day 10, but made the mistake of going to a restaurant with some
    Friends. While I drank tea they ate and a guy on the other side of the ion had ordered a streak. I don’t think I had ever smelled something so delicious. I was salivating like dog. I couldn’t take it any more – I needed food. So I ate some watermelon and eased back into eating.

    Anyway – I’ll try this tomorrow for a couple days and see how it goes. Not looking to loose weight, but cleaning the innards would b good.
    2/15/16 – 158.

    • Most people have either messaged me on Facebook or emailed me to tell me they’ve lost 4-6 pounds. Please do come back and let me know how yours goes! πŸ™‚

    • I used to do the lemonade diet in high school. No food for 5 days, just the lemonade. Also started with an uniodized sea salt flush. I would feel AMAZING after.

    • How come NOBODY posted ANYTHING after doing this challenge? As Josh said: Did everyone die? Josh, did you die too?

    • I am currently on day 7 of the lemonade cleanse but having done it before, I no longer attempt to do it without any food. Hence, I eat fruits and juices for cleansing during the lemonade diet. Today, for instance, I am having coconut water, cucumbers, celery, an apple, lime and ginger.

  7. I’d like to try this because I had the sleeve done and have put on weight!
    I crave sweets all the time. Plus I’m always hungry I’ve never been hungry late at night.
    My main concern is that I cannot handle hot or spicy peppers. It upsets my stomach and I’ll get a painful flare up!
    So I’ve never been able to do any detox that included hot peppers of any kind. Or grapefruit juices.
    Does it have to be natural maple syurp? I have diabetes can I use natural organic honey?
    I’ve got to make more of an effort and not just feel hopeless.and give up trying different things. I’m very upset with myself for gaining back weight loss after the surgery. I know the intense amount of stress I’ve been thru just doesn’t justify it.

    • I also had the sleeve and have gained back half of the weight I lost. Not sure what started the trend to gain but I know my thyroid is at least partially to blame. Just started synthroid 2 months ago but haven’t lost any of the weight. Don’t give up on yourself. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the topic but the sleeve is still relatively new so there aren’t a ton of long term studies. Hang in there!

      • I was on synthroid for several years. Started at 25mg, then was increased to 50 but gained weight even though I’m a fitness instructor and was teaching up to 10 classes a week at the time. I went to a endocrinologist last year an requested to be changed to Armour Thyroid. Started at 60 mg and things were going okay but symptoms came back after a few months. I asked him to try to get my levels not just in range but to optimal range. Increased Armour to 90 mg two months ago and I also am on an low carb, high protein diet and am now seeing weight loss. Before thyroid issues I had lost over 130 lbs through low carb diet and exercise. Never give up. It works! Also, to all reading this….If you have ever been diagnosed as anemic and your doctor put you on iron, PLEASE, PLEASE take it as directed. I promise you will thank me for this!!! Especially if you have any issues with your period! I was put on 2 iron tablets per day (1 morning and 1 evening) and I take it with a chewable vitamin C. Some things I thought were related to thyroid was related to the anemia. Peace. Oh, BTW, (LOL) I drink warm lemon water all throughout the day and it has done wonders for digestion and constipation issues.

        • Delo,
          Are you Hypothyridism or Hyper? I have been on a yoo with my weight and I have been going to the gym doing cardio and eating healthy. I am on the border line of anemia though I was anemic a couple of years ago. I just have tried to eat food with iron, though again it is frustrating to be on the yoyo of all this. When you drink this mix, can I use cinnamon instead of cayenne pepper?

      • I also had the done. A couple of times I have gained abnormal weight back. I crave sweetsxas well but go back to the proper way of eating nothing to drink 30 minutes before a meal, 30 minutes for the meal and nothing to drink for 30 more minutes it will reset the sleeve. I have always had a hard time with real food or protein drinks without medication. I used to drink vinegar for years and if it cleans coffee pots imagine what it does for our bodies. Please get clearance from your doctor because we do not get nutrition like other people especially if you stay sick on your stomach too. If you are on medication be careful because the vinegar will clean out your medications so be careful. I can no longer tolerate vinegar but I always felt awesome for the many years I drank a couple of ounces daily plus daily put it on greens. I went for my yearly bariatric visit and the bariatric store had so many new approved foods that do not hurt my stomach. I hope this helps. #imissvinegar πŸ™‚

        • That was I also had the sleeve done but it was cut out

      • generally there is only a small amount of weight loss with the initiation of Levothyroxine. It also depends on how high your TSH was. Many people are gaining weight back from having the gastric sleeve because they don’t follow the prescribed diet. Surgery is not a cure all. Also, what individuals don’t realize, is that there is a lifestyle change, having surgery can mask the real underlying cause of the obesity it is like just putting a “bandaid” on dismembered limb.

    • If you’ve had weight loss surgery, you might find you do better with the Five Day Pouch Test.

      It helps get your pouch (bypass) or sleeve back to a smaller size.

      Search it and you’ll find the eating plan.

  8. Going to start this today:) April 17, 2016
    Wright is 156. πŸ™

  9. My mixture looks really dark compared to the picture you posted. Did you add the cayenne powder in that pic? Yours looks like lemonade. Mine is rather orangey. Looks like a cup of rust. lol. Think I’ll take the cayenne separately like a quick shot. Have done that before with the master cleanse. The rest of the drink is pretty good. But with the cayenne it’s too spicy! Thanks for this post!

  10. Im starting this diet today (4/19/2016). Current weight is 168 pounds.
    Hoping for the best.
    Quick question though: Is there any other sweetener I can use, maybe honey?

    • Maple syrup should be used because of the minerals it provides, so it’s best not to substitute it for honey.

  11. Hi, do I have to drink the 2 cups of water plus ingredients 3 times a day? Or is the 2 cups divide in 3 parts?

  12. Mine looks really dark, as well. I couldn’t get past the first sip, as I was coughing and my lips stung so bad. Still waiting for the sting to pass.

    I’d like to know if this mixture is taken as is three separate times daily, or divided up in three separate doses during the day.

    That is a lot of cayenne pepper.

    I’m 174, and I’d like to accept this challenge, but need more info.


  13. I am excepting this challenge! I weigh 171lbs. I had a baby 5 months ago. With six kids total I have got into the habit of eating unhealthy food because I feel I’m hungry and I need to eat fast! I’m excited to shed a few lbs and gain some energy! I love my lemon essential oil and I already use it every day in my water it am excited to try it in this!

  14. 145 & 5’2″
    How about molasses instead of maple syrup to sweeten? Too thick?

  15. I keep seeing all these comments about “starting this diet” and not “not eating only drinking this”. Yikes! Honestly, not eating anything is a recipe for failure… Do not starve your body! It just tells your body to hold onto the weight! When your body needs fuel it begins to break down your protein rich muscles too. I don’t think this post was intended as a no food cleanse or even as a “diet” it’s meant to aid in gradual weight loss with exercise and a healthy diet and it works!!! It works as part of a lifestyle change not a fad diet.

    • Actually, this is not 100% true. Historically, many cultures and religions fast for days at a time. It is actually good for your body to have a break from food and it does not break down muscle unless you have no fat at all to burn. Not that you should use this regularly as a diet, but it is not as dangerous as you’re claiming.

      • In America? Have you been to WalMart lately? Or ridden the train? Been to the beach? We are all fat!

  16. I’m in high school, for the drink at lunch would it be okay to make it in the morning around 8 and have it sit until 12?

      • No disrespect meant, but considering that this is a teenager, wouldn’t it be in her best interest to discuss undertaking a cleanse with her parents/doctor?

        • As a teenager my dad had our entire family do this master cleanse. We didn’t eat anything for 21 days. Just drank this a gallon a day. I never felt better and had more energy. The maple syrup has the vitimins and minerals that you need to stay healthy. Also apple cider vinegar helps to sooth stomach issues and much to many people’s surprise cayenne pepper is very healing for ulcers and other issues with the stomach. I am picking up the items and will begin this again.

  17. Hi,
    Just a question. After reading some comments it sounds like some people are fasting on this cleanse? In the directions it’s noted that you have this drink before each meal? Are their suggestions to what you are to be eating or not eating? Thanks ☺️
    Looking forward to giving this a try.

  18. Ok…I’m gonna give this a shot. (Fingers crossed!!)
    Currently 198 (ugh)
    I WILL post my results here.

  19. Do you have to do this with warm water or can it be cold or room tempature so I can take it on the go?

    • I assume – cold, room temperature. Earlier in comments some student asked, if she can let it sit, autor wrote yes, but to keep it cold. So I assume it must be drunk cold or must be pulled out the fridge few mins before the meal.

  20. What happens after the 3 days are up? Does the weight come back? How often do you do this?

  21. Gonna try it 1 per day! Currently 37 wks pregnant, and a good gut detox us exactly what I need right now. I use all those ingredients in some soups and curries I make, but I’ll call the doc to get the o.k. Thanks for the reminder! I was 160 at conception and 190 now. I won’t be posting pictures until post-partum

  22. Hi I’m taking a one a day tablet for having too much acid, will the cider vinegar react with this?

    • I’m no doctor but this is from the evidence of friends I have passed the information along to… Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) ALONE will fix your acid issue. The pill you take is a band aid. My son’s 2nd grade teacher’s daughter was diagnosed with possibly having gerd (worse than acid reflux) she started taking a shot (1 ounce) of ACV every morning, quit her Tagamet cold turkey – a12 year old should not be living on Tagamet anyway :(.. within 6 weeks her daughter stopped NEEDING anything for her acid issues. That was 8 years ago. ALSO, do NOT drink purified bottle water. It’s very acidic! If you drink bottled water, make it spring water, it’s neutral, like your body. (specifically Braggs raw-unfiltered unpasteurized ACV)

      • I was diagnosed with GURD in 2014, my chest was killing me when I ate anything. The doctor gave me nexium. I hate taking medication. I took as prescribed until I researched the long term effects of nexium then stopped immediately. My cousin said for me to try ACV. I totally thought he was joking. I picked some up at the store and haven’t had a problem since!

    • You should consult your doctor or pharmacist to see if it will react with the tablet you are taking.

  23. Am gona take this challenge as of now weight is 72kg need to lose 15kgs

  24. Hi there!

    What happens after day 3? Can you do this every day for the rest of your life? Once a month? How often do you do this? Thanks so much!

    • I would highly suggest reading the book the “Master Cleanse”. It will answer every question you have about it. It is okay to do 10-40 days in a row, but then you should at least wait 30 days before doing it again. The “Master Cleanse” will give you a slightly different recipe (minus the apple cider vinegar).

    • They do not work the same way as cayenne pepper. So your results would be different. I suggest only sprinkling the cayenne pepper in the drink if you are having problems drinking it, then every day add a little more until you get use to it.

  25. I am a nursing mom. I do not see anything that a nursing baby can’t have. So my question is do you think I can do this while nursing?

    • I think it’s important to discuss this with your doctor. You are eliminating toxins out of your body and they may come out in the milk. Therefore you could be giving your baby toxins.

  26. Apple cider vinegar is that just any or one with “the mother “? And a total of 6 cups of luke warm water a day(with the other ingredients of course..)?

  27. I tried it but got a nasty rash, as I later found out I’m allergic to citrus! It took 1 year for the rash to completely disappear. It started as a dot and grew to the size of a bread plate. Larger than my hand! Had a biopsy to confirm the allergy. It turned up on multiple sites with raised edges, reddening, itching and dry flaking skin. So be careful if you have food allergy!

  28. So excited to do this! I’m drinking my first glass as I type this! β™‘ One question though. … can you drink this cold?

  29. So excited to do this! I’m drinking my first glass as I type this! β™‘ One question though. … can you drink this cold? So excited to see my results! β™‘

  30. I take the challenge! I just drank my first cup! Wow! That’s hot! 182 lbs.

  31. ? i dont understand what happened to all the ladies providing their starting weight. I assume the drink did NOT work, they ended up pigging out…
    I feel lied to, I scrolled through this whole page to see their weight AFTER and NOT ONE person posted it! I guess everybody died…including person in comments that also thought that.

    • Had I done it before & gotten little or no results for my efforts, I think I would be very motivated to “dis” the system for its failure. However, had I done something that worked, I think I would be less concerned about posting something to warn others off… so probably they either got results or didn’t follow it properly, which is another reason I might not post even if I didn’t see results.

    • If you google The Master Cleanse, which is the original cleanse, designed by a Dr, I guarantee you will lose weight

  32. I did this all three days and am doing WW and excercusing and nothin my different happened to the scale. But for some reason I loved the drink even with the cayenne pepper! I’ll still do warm lemon water and ACV first drink of the day

  33. How often can this cleanse be done? I had been having digestive issues and haven’t had any since doing the cleanse. WOO-HOO ☺. Plus I lost 4 pounds.

  34. I’m a little confused… I was under the impression that you take this drink before every meals (so it will make you less hungry) NOT just drink this (only) for 3 days.
    Was I wrong?
    @150lb want to try this out. 04/23/16

  35. Totally disappointed that no one checked back in with positive results…

    • Shannon I agree with you about noone replying back with results.

    • Danielle and Carol did on April 23rd! (Just a few posts ahead of yours)!

    • Hi Shannon, ee, BUT I do have another drink you can use and you drink it all day, its a detox, you make tall glass of water(8oz) add either sqeezed lemon juice roughly TB and add 2 TB of Cranberry juice. Ice and make sure NOT to use sugar,this will counter the results. I drink this all day for 3 days and I lost 6 pounds.Yes you will use the bathroom a lot,but there is no hot lip or mouth when you drink this one. Good luck..I usually only eat breakfast and have a light dinner when doing this. Works EVERY time..

  36. I gagged my first dose today for breakfast and 5 minutes later violently vomited the whole drink right back up. Instead of suppressing my appetite, I had to drink and eat anything I could find to get the taste out of my mouth and try to calm my wriggling intestines. 4 hours later and my intestines are still burning.

    This all felt like a mean trick that my sisters used to pull on me when I was little and they brewed me up some witches brew to drink. I can’t think of a possible worse way to lose weight. Sorry πŸ™

  37. Similar ingredients found in FireCider. Would using FireCider work?

  38. Hi. Are you allowed to eat normal food aswell or are you just suppose to take the drink.

    • The challenge was to drink the cleanse just before each of your three meals!

  39. This is a great drink just for the nutritional value! I was drinking this every morning to jumpstart my body and get my day going, but slacked off. I wil try drinking this three times a day, before each meal, and see if I lose any weight. I’m currently 230lbs and have been having so much fun challenging myself with nutritional and fitness goals! Cheers to happy, healthy bodies!

  40. If you’re going to the bathroom… A lot… As you say, isn’t this just water weight that will come back once the three days is over?

    • More like the “back-up” in your colon and system! Your body will be flushing the junk that is making it move a little slower.

  41. I wanted to ask after we have had the detox for three days can we repeat it if so after the span of how many days?? Thanks

  42. I am in Australia and have just seen this. I am already trying to lose weight and my current weight is 78kg (172lbs). I won’t bother with a photo as I am in my 50’s and well aware of how I look, but I will report back here with my weight.

  43. I will take the challenge and will give an honest result. My weight is aprox. 198. Shannon I hope you will do the same.

  44. Wow that’s horrible, drinking through a straw helps. 127.2 lbs, went light in the Cayenne.

  45. 179 lbs and beginning this tomorrow. So super excited! Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

  46. I have taken acv before, 2 oz like a shot, in the morning. But I drank lots of water through the day. I felt full & used the bathroom regularly. I’m going to try this again, your way. 3 times a day, with hot water. I am not going to use the cayenne as I don’t handle it well on either end. I am 55, 185 lbs, 5’3″.
    I am in a wedding in July & need to lose as much of my belly as possible. Wish me luck.

  47. Me my mother and my sister took this challange.
    Mom Lost: 3 kgs
    My Sister lost: 2 kgs
    And I Lost: 1 kgs
    So I wanted to know if we could do it again and how many times should we do this.

    • Congrats to the 3 of you!

      I’m no expert but I’m pretty sure that once a month would be a good maintenance. I would think that you could do it even more often than that, but as I said, I am no expert!

  48. Hi Crystal, I will do the challenge but am wondering – you say drink 3 glasses a day, one before each meal. The ingredients are already 2 cups of water etc, so do you divide the recipe into 3 cups and drink one before each meal or do you make the whole recipe each time ?.
    Thanks, Jacquie

    • Jacquie,

      I think you are asking if you can divide up 16 oz. into 3 servings?
      If that is what you are asking, the answer is no, you drink 16oz before each meal.

      If you are asking can the recipe be tripled into 48oz and then divided for each meal, the answer is yes, if that makes things easier for you!

  49. I’m going take the dare. I’m 200 lbs. I can reply back since I don’t have a scale.
    How long can you take this. And can i use honey for the sweetener?

  50. I’m 64kg, means 143.3 ibs.. just started drinking it after getting on a scale this morning, if you like spicy stuff, it doesn’t taste too bad actually. I will defo reply back after 3 days bout what happened.
    PS I’ve been on a diet and exercising for a week now but I couldn’t lose a single pound yet… hopefully this help..

    • I bet this is helping you out but you might want to try adding a probiotic to your intake everyday, it could be the thing that starts things rolling. EveryBODY is different though!

      Good Luck!

  51. Hello. Crystal. May I stay on this diet more than 3 days?
    Thank you

  52. How far in advance are you supposed to drink this before eating? Is it immediately before each meal? An hour before? Or does it not matter? Also, does it need to be drunk warm or can we drink it cold?

  53. How often would you do this cleanse? Clearly if you are loosing weight you would need to be careful about doing it too often in case you overdo it. Perhaps once every month or two?

  54. I have to comment on this because I did the ORIGINAL Master Cleanse diet, which is lemon juice, cayenne pepper, pure maple syrup and water. You begin by drinking a quart of very warm water that sea salt has been added to. You then drink 8 glasses of the lemon water mixture for 3 days, each day starting with the salt water. You can safely do this for up to 10 days. If you go past 3 days then it’s best to go to day 10. When you come off, to do it safely, you make a soup using fresh veggies, but drink only the broth. I lost 24lbs and felt amazing. I keep seeing people make their own version of The Master Cleanse ( written by a Dr I might add) but it’s not as safe or affective as his.

  55. I need a good challenge. Haven’t done one lately & creeped back up the scale.
    195.6 as of 5-7-2016.

  56. I accept the challenge! I am currently @198 (ugh). 5//7/16

  57. Hi just found this on Pinterest, gonna give it a go! It’s 5/6/2016 and my weight is 342.

  58. You did 2tb of ACV in each drink? I tried it and couldn’t do that much cayenne. Ohmygoshhhh, fire city! Lol. So I’m starting with less. Oh, and weight is 185.

  59. Apple cider vinegar does it matter if it’s filtered or unfiltered (with mother)?

  60. Starting this today (on 10 of may 2016)
    I am 155cm/5’2 tall and weigh 142.6 pounds/67.4kgs

  61. I have not seen one post of an after weight. This seems extremely fishy. If you are so gung-ho about this, why with hold the after?

    • And why doesn’t Crystal, the creator of this blog, answer anyone questioning the none existing results? I don’t understand. Best thing to do is eat right and exercise. Living a healthy lifestyle will prevent anyone from having to drink some funky concoction. Seriously people

        • Where is comment of people after trying this is it fake …huh no buddy came back to reply

  62. My starting weight is 134 but I won’t start this cleanse until next week because I work this weekend and I don’t want to have to go to the bathroom a lot while at work .

  63. Where do I find the essential oils at ? And nobody is posting their results , as it worked for anyone ? I just started my weight loss journey 5 days ago and so far so good!

  64. Do you use regular ACV or the vinegar with the mother in it? I have both and would like to try this.

  65. Going to try this tomorrow my current weight as of this morning is 144 5/15/16

  66. I don’t have a fresh lemon or lemon oil, but I have the kind in the bottle. Should I just use that or leave it out entirely?

  67. I just finished doing this (without the maple syrup) for 7 days as part of the Ultimate Candida Diet phase 1. You also eat lots of veggies for that week. I lost a pound a day, so 7lb in total.

  68. A comment for the people submitting “comments”.
    REALLY???? There a lot of special people here…very flat learning curve. I’ll help spell it out.

    1 it’s a challenge – in other words a “Dare” not a contest for posted results. Yes many people get good results but – Good for them. It’s not freakin Publishers Clearing House
    2 yes you have to use the ingredients listed without substitution —- It’s A DARE!!!!! If you can’t do it than don’t!!!!
    3 how much of each ingredient and how often/when to do this is SPECIFICALLY listed. If you can’t follow the directions or read them properly then ask for your 1st grade teacher or your parent for a review on reading and following direction…if your more advanced than that but are having problems then please work on some critical thinking skills rather than expecting someone to spoon feed you 3 word directives.
    4 if all you’re going to do is B![@h about all the things life has to offer put them in a private journal because NO ONE CARES….this Crystal person who made this blog obviously does this to try and be helpful to others and probably doesn’t have the time or desire to answer un-thoughtful questions or gripes from people who either don’t understand the greater purpose or are smart enough to see the bigger picture but are too small in themselves to be positive to others and must bring things down for their self elevation.

  69. I see a lot of people taking this challenge and then not posting results! So I’ll be posting mine; I did this for about five days instead of the suggested three, and lost about 4 to 4.5 pounds ( started out as 116.5 and dropped to 111 to 112 pounds ). The acv was a pain to swallow down ( it tastes so bad to me! ), and I used lemon juice, but besides that, it wasn’t hard to follow! Hope everyone else doing this get positive results!

  70. Let me make sure I got this right before even staring. Do I have to take this drink before each meal along with 3 glasses of water? Or is it 3 glasses of water throughout the day? What about if I also already drinking a gallon of water a day buy no less than 64 oz of water a day.

      • Got it! Thanks… I will start this challenge as soon as I am out of school so I can be in the comfort of my own bathroom . I will post weight before and after.

        • Nevermind I will try this weekend. 3 day weekend.
          Current weight: 135. (As of 5-25-16)

          I have very stubborn belly fat. Hope this helps! Wish me luck

          • Ok everyone. I haven’t started yet…. only because I can’t find lemon oil. I have found some but is for aromatherapy.

  71. I had been reading other master cleanse recipies that say to drink it within the first 5 minutes of making it. But that is only because you are to preserve the enzymes in freshly squeezed lemons. Is the same true if we are using the oil? Or is this something I can do the night before and refrigerate for the next day?

  72. Some of these other recipes I’ve seen day that you need to drink it within 5 min of making it. And that’s to take advantage of the enzymes in the freshly squeezed lemons. Is it the same if we are using the oil? Or can I make it the night before and refrigerate it. I know it may make it a little spicier. But I don’t want to lose any benefits if I do.

  73. Hi! I took on the challenge and I have not had many “restroom runs”, therefore, I don’t believe I have detoxed at all. I followed the instructions intently, maybe it’s just not for me. I’m disappointed considering the time and resources put into it not to mention the yucky drink I had to endure. Anyway, I will say I’m happy that at least it gave me a boost to try something new and continue my weight loss journey. Not many people have posted their results so I thought this would be appreciated!

  74. I want to start this Monday, but I have a very sensitive stomach & an ulcer I’m not sure I can use the amount of cayenne pepper stated in the recipe. What is the lowest amount of cayenne pepper to get the results needed to cleanse the toxins out of my body. My stomach just can’t handle any spicy drinks or food. I’m afraid this will make my ulcer & sensitive stomach much worse. Would you suggest I try this drink or not & not upset my very sensitive stomach & ulcer. As of 5/28/16 I weigh 207. In the last 2 months I have already lost 25 pounds w/of even trying. I have a long list of health problems that cause me intense constant pain everyday & because of the pain I find it very hard to eat. I do drink a lot of detox water recipes everyday & that is about all I drink. I eat a piece of fruit every now & then, but I find I can only eat about 1/4 of it at a time this is about all my stomach can handle. Do you suggest I try this drink? I’m thinking probably not.

  75. I’m doing this starting immediately, 143 lbs.

    I spoke with the dentist I work with about fresh squeezed lemon water, she said if I start with a coconut oil pull, the enamel on my teeth will survive.

    As I have already been having lemon water, I am just going to add these other delicious ingredients, sounds too good to be true, all my favorite things!

  76. i tried the drink and i couldnt drink it the cayenne pepper was too spicy for me but i really want too take it what should i do?

  77. So far I am trying 8oz of warm water 1tablespoon of honey, I tablespoon of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of ACV and 2 tablespoons of lime . We will see how if works…. weight my self yesterday at 134 pounds.

  78. I have been drinking 8 oz of warm water with 2 TBSP of ACV with 1 TBSP of raw organic honey and a sprinkle of cayenne no weight changes even though I’ve changed my diet and have been working out. Moderate work out but trying to build consistency. Very frustrating – I’ve had excema and that’s improved d/t the ACV but not weight loss.

  79. I just made this drink,it didn’t look like the picture it looked more like apple cider n plus will lemon juice work I don’t have any oils beside coconut oil..

  80. I don’t see anyones after post… did anyone complete the challenge?

  81. OK, I am doing this. I unfortunately weight 233 lbs, the most I have ever weighed. I feel so tired all of the time. I work in an office all day, sitting at a computer. When I get home I grab something quick and very unhealthy for me, comfort food I guess. Then I sit in front of the tv all night. So I am going to give this a good try. I made it about an hour ago and had a glass right away even though I had already eaten supper, cause I usually get hungry in the evenings or bored so I eat. So I will report back in 3 days. I am on vacation next week so I am hoping I can get a good start on Making some changes. Badly needed changes. Keep your fingers crossed that this can help. I am sure it isn’t all I need to do but I think it certainly can’t hurt.

  82. I’m wondering if Crystal Collins is still responding to these posts, and second, I’m only seeing beginning weight, and not ending weights.

    No pictures? I’ll hide my identity by using a picture over my face. I believe I’ll have the ability to see the change in weight when I compare pictures

    It’s hard to see any changes to our before and after picture, than simply looking at our images in a mirror.

    I’ll notice changes in my grandchildren, if I haven’t seen them in a while, as pop to seeing then everyday.

    I’ll keep y’all posted.

  83. Hi there, I want to take the three day challenge starting. I’m finished work soon and I will start next Monday, I’ll be back with a before photo, wish me luck

    • I have been taking this drink for the past 2 months. I really have not noticed any weight changes ( i have gained or loss anything).

  84. I made the drink and finished the drink and IMMEDIATELY puked up the peach I had eaten 2 hours before. Idk if that was part of the “cleanse” but that stuff was disgusting going down my throat.

  85. Many comments ago someone asked about using Cayenne pills. Is it okay to use the pills versus the powder?

  86. I’m going to try it and I weight 185 lbs. be back in 3 days..

  87. I’ve been drinking this drink for the past 5 days and I kinda swear by it now. Three times a day, before each meal, I drink water with a squeeze of raw honey, 2 tablespoons of ACV with the mother , cayenne, cinnamon and the juice of a lemon. I eat 3 healthy meals, along with a light snack in between. I’ve lost 7 pounds in 5 days. Hope this helps.

  88. I am starting my challenge today, 7/14/16, and I weight 167…

  89. I’m afraid that it will be spicy because of pepper Should I?

  90. Soooo trying this when I get the ingredients my current weight is 215lbs

  91. You told to use therapeutic grade lemon oil,I can’t find this one in the marke awailabe Lemon 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil by Edens Garden- 10 ml, I don’t know both are same one please reply

  92. Nobody is reporting back so nope I won’t take the challenge. I did military diet and lost 10pounds also it altered the portions and what I eat. Perfect. I am 126pounds

  93. Would it be ok to take the cayenne paper tablets instead of mixing in the drink?

  94. I think that it is ridiculous that there are no posted results. Have you tried this yourself? You say people PM’d you and responded on Facebook – why not share some of those here?

  95. What can you use if you are allergic to cayenne pepper? I’ve asked this many time for different diets and haven’t received an answer.

  96. Is this with a Gallon of water, does it matter distilled, filtered, purified?
    How many ounces are you drinking per drink?
