Lemon Detox – updated

*Update* – I finished the lemon detox with 200 fresh lemons.

The juice of freshly pressed lemons is a great way to detox your body.

I did it for 12 days and finished yesterday (17.09.), here a summary:

  • The effect during the first few days was that I felt a bit sick (because of the toxins in my body)
  • I had bit fever and shivering during the night
  • After day 5 those symptoms were gone and I felt every day better and better
  • Sometimes I felt a bit sleepy
  • Overall I felt better because of the Vitamin C Boost
  • Read below about the whole detox, its effect on your body and possible side effects
200 lemons

I’m currently doing a Lemon Detox for my body. Drank already the juice of 100 lemons during the last 6 days. And another 100 lemons will follow in the next 6 days. I’ll keep you updated here regarding the progress and outcomes of this ‘experiment’ and why I am doing it.

You can google it yourself and you’ll find all kinds of stuff (no surprise) that will tell you how bad or dangerous it is.
–> I drank the juice of 100 Lemons in the last 6 days, and yep I had some symptoms (nausea, headache) in the first 3 days, but now feeling better than ever.

Disclaimer: Drinking lemon water or pure lemon juice can cause tooth decay, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and all kinds of reflux symptoms, because of the acid in the citrus fruit. The lemon itself is very acid (pH 2.5) but has an alkalizing effect on the human body. Meaning – once the lemon juice is digested and metabolized, lemon juice produces alkaline byproducts, which make the urine more alkaline.


Drink the Juice of a total of 200 Lemons within 12 days.

  • Do not mix it with water
  • Do not add honey or anything to it

Right now I’m at 50% of this immunity booster with pure lemon juice.

So you start with 5 and increase every day by 5 more lemons until you reach 25, which is the max. and means about 1 liter of fresh lemon juice.

  • Day 1: 5 lemons
  • Day 2: 10 lemons
  • Day 3: 15 lemons
  • Day 4: 20 lemons
  • Day 5: 25 lemons
  • Day 6: 25 lemons
  • Day 7: 25 lemons
  • Day 8: 25 lemons
  • Day 9: 20 lemons
  • Day 10: 15 lemons
  • Day 11: 10 lemons
  • Day 12: 5 lemons

The total of lemons you drink is 200.

This was day 3: 15 lemons or about 0.6 litres of lemon juice.

And that’s how it looks when you get the juice out of them:
