8 Tings You Need to Know About The Lemon Detox Diet

hbuonbuhn

1. It Involves Fasting.
The Master Cleanse is based upon fasting for approx 7-10 days, not eating any solids while drinking only lemonade mix as your source of sustenance. Stopping the influx of food is designed to give your digestive system a rest, and cleanses your organs and stomach. And drinking the lemonade with the cayenne pepper is helps to stimulate your body into purging out toxins and other built-up waste. The maple syrup is said to give your body enough nourishment. The Master Cleanse is not easy if you’ve never done a fast. But if you have a strong, as I did my first time, you’ll get great results.

2. You should buy premium ingredients.
Since you’re only going to be consuming a limited number of ingredients, it’s important to make sure that you are getting nothing but the best, right down to organic lemons for the lemon juice. Unless you have a premium filtration system, you should also consider buying the water you’ll be using for the lemonade. You want to make sure that your body doesn’t have to contend with any added containments or chemicals, so be very selective about what you use while on it.

3. There’s a book on it.
You can download a free copy of  Flat Belly Diet Drink a Step-by-step Guide to cleansing & Weight Loss. Containing the essential recipe that takes minutes to learn, and when done correctly the cleanse is surprisingly easy and completely effective for cleansing and weight loss. But there’s more to it than just drinking a lemonade mixture. the  Flat Belly Diet Drink  offers a step-by-step guidance that unleashes the full power of the Master Cleanse and all its health benefits..

4. You should gradually go on and come off of it.
Not properly starting and stopping the Master Cleanse is the biggest problem most people have. It’s important to not approach this “cold” by just stopping eating and starting an influx of lemonade. Spend time acclimating your body to the idea of what’s to come. You also don’t want to just stop the cleanse and jump right back into eating solid foods like sandwiches and cheeseburgers.

5. It doesn’t involve an exercise regimen.
You aren’t required to do any specific exercises on this cleanse, which makes it attractive to those that either don’t want to, or can’t perform cardio or weight lifting activities. You won’t be getting enough calories to warrant doing anything extra while on it, and you should practice conserving your energy even though you might feel more energetic than you normally do. You can practice meditating or do some very light yoga to help keep the body in motion.

6. It can be customized to your desired length of time.
Even though the recommended time to be on the cleanse is 10 days, it is not a hard and fast requirement. You can play with this number as you see fit, and as your confidence grows you can increase the number of days that you go on it, eventually building up to ten. It’s important to always feel good about what you’re doing, so don’t push yourself past your limits and take this process slowly and deliberately.

7. You can buy pre-made kits
if you can’t be bothered buying the ingredients.
If you are in a remote location or don’t feel like assembling your own ingredients, you can buy pre-packaged kits that include everything you’ll need, from the water to the lemon juice and syrup, to the laxative sea and salt for the salt water flush. These are usually moderately priced, and are just a little more expensive than if you got them all yourself.

8. Celebrities use it.
This may or may not sway your decision, based on your feelings towards celebrities. The most recent attention the cleanse got was from Beyonce when she used it to slim down for Dreamgirls. Many times celebrities can put a diet or detox program on the map by just mentioning it to the tabloids.

Master Cleanse FAQ

How Does the Master Cleanse lemonade work?

The lemonade is really the crux to the whole cleanse. It’s a simple enough concoction, just water, lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. The lemon juice is meant to have a cleansing effect, the syrup is there to sustain you since you won’t be eating any food, and the cayenne pepper is said to be able to stimulate your internal organs so that they can function at more optimal levels. All combined, these are supposed to cause the magic to happen, leading to the positive feedback the cleanse gets.

Can you do the Master Cleanse for X days?

One of the biggest questions regarding the cleanse is whether it’s OK to do it for a specific amount of days, ranging anywhere from 1 to 40 or more. The official book that started it all says that you can do it for up to 40 days, and 10 is recommended as the norm. But 10 days can seem like an eternity when you’re not eating any food, and there’s no pressing reason why you couldn’t start off with any number that sounds reasonable to you, working your way up to the ten days over a series of cleanses.

How much Does the Master Cleanse cost?

There’s nothing to buy except for the ingredients which can be had for a modest price at your local supermarket. Keep in mind that you won’t be eating regular food while you’re on it, so it will likely end up saving you money by not having to feed yourself for 10 days.

Is the Master Cleanse a hoax?

No, it’s not a hoax and was presented as a bona fide way to cleanse the body back in the 40’s. The author of the book gave his theory as to why the cleanse would work, and how it would work, and it was meant to be taken seriously. In current times people are using it in a gimmicky sort of way to fit into wedding dresses or prepare for movie roles, and the instructions have been passed around as email spam, which is why it sounds like a made up hoax.

Is the Master Cleanse hard to do?

Since Ive done the it myself I can say the first 1-3 days are hard if your not used to fasting, but by the 4th day all of a sudden your hunger pangs dissapeard, and it gets much easier. Some say that it is difficult to do, while others say it’s hard at first and then gets easier. It really depends largely on the individual and how much experience they have with fasting, and detoxing, and cleanses, and their belief level on whether it will be easy for them or not.

Does the Master Cleanse give you energy?

One of the side effects of not eating is an initial surge of energy. This is because you’re not being weighed down by food, and you’re getting sugar from the maple syrup in the lemonade. Even though you may feel more energetic, it’s important to conserve that energy since you’re not getting enough calories each day and you’ll need that energy to get through your day.

Is the Master Cleanse safe for kids?

The Master Cleanse is not recommended for children.

Does the Master Cleanse give you headaches?

One of the reported symptoms of the Master Cleanse is headaches. This is to be expected as you’ll be tampering greatly with the amount of food you’re eating, or not eating in this case. The lemonade is supposed to help with these sort of symptoms, so make sure that you are consuming enough of it at the suggested times.

Is the Master Cleanse safe while pregnant or breastfeeding?

The Master Cleanse is not recommended during these times, as your baby needs to be nourished both during and after pregnancy. Once you are finished breastfeeding you might consider the cleanse to help with getting rid of the baby weight.

When does the Master Cleanse start working?

On the first day of drinking only the lemonade and not eating any food, most people say that they feel lighter and have more energy. This is because you’ve stopped the flow of food into your body, so you really are now emptier, and your body has been focusing on the food you’ve already eaten, and getting that out of your system.
