There are degrees of cheating. Drinking more juice simply increases your calorie intake and you will not lose as much weight. Obviously, eating lemons, maple syrup, or a teaspoon of cayenne won’t hurt either. Herbal Teas are okay, but caffeinated teas are pushing it. Digesting any food will cause your body to be less efficient at eliminating wastes. Chewing and not swallowing will cause your body to begin the digestive process and secrete acids. This is bad for your stomach – so, no gum.
