The Lemonade Diet

The Lemonade Diet, which is also known as the Master Cleanse or Maple Syrup Diet, works as a detoxification and fasting program, too. Although it has been known for more than 50 years, the diet became very popular after the artist Beyonce announced she lost 20 pounds on it.

In order to have great results, Stanley Burroughss recommends a minimum of ten days on the Lemonade Diet. However, depending on your physical condition, you can try it for only seven days or less, because this recipe involves drinking just lemon juice, and not eating any foods during the whole time.

The lemons have all the nutrients our body needs, and this is why no other food is allowed during the detoxification period. One of its advantages is that it cleans our body from toxins which can work miracles for our health. So, keep that in mind next time you are thinking to go on a diet, and choose the right one.

The ingredients you need to prepare the Lemonade Diet are the following ones: four lemons, 10 teaspoons of maple syrup, one spoon of cayenne pepper and two liters of water. All you have to do is squeeze the lemon juice, mix it with the other elements, and drink around eight glasses of lemonade per day.

If you want to complete the cleaning program you should consider mixing two teaspoons of unionized sea salt with a quart of water, and drink the result in the morning. In order to achieve your goal, have some herbal laxative tea at night and you can be confident will feel great.

Although it might seem wonderful, the Lemonade Diet is pretty severe, so you need to be careful. It’s true that you will lose weight very quickly, but that is the result of stop eating for a week and drinking only a few calories. It can be very dangerous, especially for people who suffer from anemia or other types of disorders. You can expect to get headaches, fatigue, dizziness, sluggishness, or nausea, so you need to consult your doctor before starting such a diet.

After the diet ends, you will have to carefully ease back into solid foods. You should return to your normal lifestyle by eating vegetable soup and fruits at first. Only after a while you can start eating your regular meals.

Another important thing you must know is that there are chances to lose muscle and water weight instead of fat. That is why you should consider exercising before starting any type of weight loss program. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find it very worthy and you ‘ll discover you feel better due to the great energy you’ll get.
