Dear Teddy
There is no scientific proof that drinking lemon juice will assist weight loss. Your slight weight loss may be due to the Androcur as male hormones tend to have a so-called anabolic effect. Depending on how much weight you need to lose you can try an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet). The very best way of stimulating metabolism is to do regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 min a day. Rather leave slimming pills and potions alone.
