Just curious, wouldn’t you want to maintain your weight after alterations are finished so the dress isn’t too big on you?

You want people to encourage you to starve yourself?  How about no. You need food to live. Eat and be happy.

Lily_of_the_valley:  

I’m sorry but this is a really bad move. Have you done this before? Do you know how this will affect your stomach or intestine? Maybe you will have no problems or maybe your stomach will swell up with gas and hurt when you start eating normally again. Seriously bad timing to be experementing so drastically with your body…

If I were you I just cut out sugar and eat healthy smaller portions.

Anyways good luck with your wedding.

You’re messing up your metabolic rate. Just nix it… Go vegetarian remove your bad carbs ( and I mean really vegetables not just cut out meat) for these two weeks and exercise like you never have before! do this in case the lemonade cleanse doesnt hold up cause at this rate you’re going to binge eat in a few days. I’m not being negative I just don’t want you to be in a position of failure. However since it sounds like you may be doing it no matter what, Good luck! You can do it! Also dont forget to drink a lot of water! you will be dehydrated And will not feel good! So good hydration! Once again good luck!

cherriesandcream:  It’s a fad “diet”  (I use that term lightly considering a diet usually consists of food) where you consume nothing but lemon juice mixed with cayenne pepper and syrup, maybe wash it down with some laxatives for dessert.  It was popular on the pro-ana sites back in the day and somehow regular people decided it was a good way to lose weight.  It’s not, it’s a pathway to an eating disorder or if you’re lucky just a major food binge which will leave you fatter than how you started.  I honesly can’t think of a worse way to try to lose weight.  Absolutely foolish.

padme:  thanks for telling me what it is, and oh my that sounds horrible! Lemon juice for that long, that could create so many stomach issues, all that acid in an empty stomach :/

I’d rather eat more vegetables, eliminate carbs and sugars, and drink plenty of water but still eat! Some grilled veggies, yum!

I know some people who do this. Just want to warn you that often their skin breaks out while doing it so now may not be the best time to try such a cleanse.

I did this a few years ago.. i think i made it to day 3. It is a crash diet that does make you lose weight quickly, however you gain it all back (which im sure you already know). Just do not exercise while doing this! that could be very dangerous. 

This was way too difficult for me so i wont do it again (cant eat anything with cayanne pepper in it anymore HA!). Good luck on your weightloss journey i’m not one to judge 🙂

FYI my skin did not break out but everyone is different!

One of my friends is currently in the hospital thanks to 5 days of this “diet”.  Hope you don’t end up in the same boat before your wedding!  So, good luck to no hospital!
