I did a sugar detox in February for 21 days. In that 21 days I lost 10lbs. After I did the detox, I gradually started eating sugar and various carbs. I began putting grapefruit essential oil or Citrus Fresh essential oil in my water just for flavoring and I have continued to lose weight. I wasn't even trying to lose weight, I've lost 15 more lbs so far and I haven't even worked out. I'm not saying you shouldn't work out or eat healthy, you should!! I'm just letting you know my experience. Why does grapefruit oil or citrus fresh help you lose inches? Well, it gets rid of petrochemicals that make you hang onto fat. Petrochemicals are found in things such as cosmetics, foods, food packaging, and so many other things we come into contact with. Our body tries to protect itself from the petrochemicals so it stores them in our fat cells, thus making us produce more fat. You may get results just by ingesting grapefruit oil or citrus fresh just like I did but if you want to get maximum results you should follow the petrochemical loss protocol by Tiffany Rowen.
- 3 Bottles of Citrus Fresh
- 1 Bottle of Juva Cleanse
- 2 Bottles of Grapefruit
- 1 Bag of vegetarian capsules
- 3 Empty 15ml bottles
- If you have sensitive skin or are using it on children you will need 1 bottle of Cel-Lite Magic (if you have varicose veins add a 15ml bottle of Cypress to it)
- A small (5oz or less) glass jar
- In glass jar, combine the 3 bottles of citrus fresh and the bottle of Juva Cleanse and let sit overnight.
- The next day, divide the jar evenly among the three empty 15ml bottles (each bottle should fill to just below the neck of the bottle)
- You now have one bottle for each week of the protocol.
- If you have sensitive skin add the entire contents of the jar to 4 oz of Cel-Lite Magic.
- Generously saturate the area topically twice a day.
- At night, swallow one capsule with 10-15 drops of grapefruit oil. If you have stomach problems and this irritates your stomach you can reduce the amount, apply topically, or just not use the grapefruit at all.
- This is ONLY targeted to fat caused from Petrochemicals. You may not lose any weight, but lose inches. Citrus oils can cause your skin to become phototoxic, for 12 hours after applying citrus essential oils to your skin, avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, or receiving a radiation treatment.
My friend, Ashley had really good results using Juvacleanse mixed with Citrus Fresh applied topically with only 10 applications and taking 15 drops of Grapefruit essential oil by mouth for 3 weeks. Find her blog with before and after pictures here.
