Jillian Michaels Detox Water

Jillian Michael claims that her detox water drink recipe can help to lose 5lbs of water weight.

She is a popular personal trainer from America and recommended this drink to lose approximately 5lbs of water weight within the period of 7 days.


While multiple detox water recipes are around and being practiced by people to lose weight, it seems that her detox drink recipe is totally different than others. It does not involve any fruits instead cranberry juice.

Water remains the common factor for almost all detox drinks. Jillian Michael’s detox water recipe includes organic cranberry juices, distilled water, organic dandelion tea, as well as lemon juice.

Cranberries are Potassium rich berries and provide almost 85mg of potassium for every 100gm of Cranberry. It is also a good source of Vitamin C & dietary fibers. [1]

Cranberry juice also contains lots of OXALATE & it is well-known secret, that renal stones primarily contain oxalate. So if you have a history of kidney stones it is better to seek the advice of your urologist before you start drinking Jillian Michael magic drink to lose weight. [2]

Dandelion root tea act as diuretic and helps the body to flush out toxins & aids weight loss.

Advantage & Disadvantage –

This detox drink help to lose weight by activating diuresis (means increasing urine production) and triggers frequent urination. So if you have any kidney disease, you should not be practicing this diet without permission of your doctor.

It is a less expensive diet as compared to other supplements that cause weight loss but this may lead to dehydration & may increase bowel movement. Laxatives or diuretic agents are not the worthy way to lose weight.
