      Lemon water for the vitamin C benefits. Good to start the day with a vitamin c hot, or bad because it stops the fasting phase?

      There is mixed research/conclusions here. Some whole food, plant-based doctors say yes, some say no because you’d need substantial calories to break it. If it works for you in the mornings, I see no downside. You can always reevaluate and test both ways to see how you feel.

      Thanks @Bethany. does lemon water count as my 1 a day goal for citrus? In the books it seems like Fuhrman talks more about oranges and there health benefits. Do you aim for 1 orange a day?

        We want to be counting WHOLE fresh fruit. Lemon water is great, but a whole orange or grapefruit, even better. 😉
