There are some great benefits to be had from the ingredients that make-up this water.  According to Kim, Grapefruit is loaded with vitamin C and helps you burn fat.  Tangerines help stabilize blood sugar and stimulates genes to burn fat.  Cucumbers are a natural diuretic and help reduce water retention and bloating.  Lastly, peppermint helps promote better digestion.

So far (1 day in) I have lost 4lbs...for me that was a lot due to my vacation eating for the past week! I was superrrr puffy! It may not be the same for you. Keep in mind everyone's body is different. Cannot wait to see how the next 8 days go (today is day 2).
