After reading so many good things about the lemonade diet, do you feel the excitement of doing the diet too? The Lemonade Diet a.k.a. the Master Cleanse is one of the most famous diets in United States nowadays because it helps tens of thousands of people to cleanse their body and lose weight at the same time every year!
Many people have visited our site and enquired about losing weight on the lemonade diet – whether your weight will yo-yo back, or are you losing water weight or fats, or simply how much weight would you lose after 10 days?
If you want to lose weight, you may want to look at this program – Fat Burning Furnace. There are thousands of people who have succeeded with this program and I personally think that their principles are great and natural. The amount of weight you can lose depend on how closely you follow on the program.
But if you want to detoxify and cleanse your body of all the toxins and wastes that have accumulated in your body for years, then you should try the lemonade diet.
Important note: Lemonade diet is a 10 day fast which you are only allowed to drink the lemonade concentrate and nothing else. Even though the steps are easy to follow, but if you missed out any instructions, it may affect your health. Hence it is important that you do your research properly before you embark on the cleanse. By right, any fasting should have some supervision by a fasting professional if one is doing a fast that is longer than 3-5 days.
Hence, it is advisable for you to get a master cleanse guide to help you do the lemonade diet safely and successfully.
So let’s find out some basics and the recipe for the lemonade diet.
Firstly, the Lemonade Diet, also known as the Master Cleanse Diet, allows you to consume a lemonade concoction, for the entire period of the diet. Quintessentially, you are required to drink at least 60 oz of the lemonade concoction, a day; water is permitted as well. However, drinking and eating other food than the requirement is not allowed.
On top of that, you would need to take both the salt water flush and the laxative tea in the morning and evening respectively.
Below is the recipe for a single serving in the Lemonade Diet, if you need more help with the recipe, subscribe to our newsletter below:
These ingredients must be properly mixed to come up with the correct lemonade concoction:
o 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
o 2 tablespoons of grade B organic maple syrup
o A 10th of a teaspoon of powdered organic cayenne pepper
o Distilled water in 10 oz glasses
You would need to drink at least 6-10 servings a day. There are no specific guidelines when you should drink the lemonade, but as a rule of thumb, drink it when you are hungry.
• Lemon Juice
Approximately ½ of a lemon will be needed to create 2 tablespoons of the juice. If making a whole day’s supply is preferred, bear in mind lemon juice will spoil in 8 hours, regardless of placing the lemon juice in the fridge.
Never use canned lemon juice, as canned lemon juice no longer contains the needed vitamins and nutrients. Our body needs all the nutrients that is only available from fresh lemon juice because only the lemonade will be consumed for the entire 10 days of the Master Cleanse.
Do remember to use organic lemons because non-organic lemons contain toxins like pesticides, otherwise it will defeat the purpose of doing the master cleanse.
• Grade B Organic Maple Syrup
Only use the Grade B Organic Maple Syrup. Other types of maple syrup are not appropriate for The Lemon Diet. Grade B Organic Maple Syrup should not be mistaken for commercial maple syrup used on pancakes, the two are different maple syrup.
Grade B are also more superior in terms of nutritional value. Many websites are saying that as long as you are using the organic maple syrup, then it should be fine. But the truth is if you really can’t find the grade B Organic Maple Syrup, then you have no choice but to use the organic maple syrup.
• Powdered Cayenne Pepper
The powerful healing properties of Cayenne Pepper should never be taken for granted. Regarded as one of the world’s best healing herbs, Cayenne Pepper increases the body’s blood flow. Has a rich amount of vitamins B and C. Cayenne Pepper is known to prevent heart attacks. Powdered Cayenne Pepper is highly recommended, compared to ungrounded Cayenne Pepper
Most of the time, participants find it difficult to acquire the taste of the powdered cayenne pepper. They couldn’t really drink the lemonade with the cayenne pepper and give up halfway.
If you find it difficult to drink it too, here’s a tip… You should actually start off with a little cayenne pepper and get use to the taste and slowly add more cayenne pepper. Don’t use the cayenne pepper pills manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies as most of the time, most of the nutritional value in the cayenne pepper will be gone.
How much of cayenne pepper is needed in the capsules? Just a measure of 1/10 teaspoon of a powdered cayenne pepper will do.
Salt Water Flush
When you are embark on the lemonade diet, you would need to do the salt water flush every morning during the cleanse. To prepare the salt water flush, you can mix a teaspoon of organic sea salt (non-iodized) with 25-35 oz of warm water. If you find the solution hard to drink, you can try using distilled water under room temperature. Some of our readers mixed a little lemon juice with the salt water flush to make it easier to drink.
You need non-caffeinated laxative tea for the lemonade diet. One usually drink the laxative tea just before they go to bed. You can get organic green or peppermint tea for the cleanse.
If you are unable to withstand the salt water flush, you can drink the laxative tea in the morning too. But if you find that you do not have frequent bowel elimination, you might want to consider doing the salt water flush.
Do You Know?
One of the reasons that this cleanse is able to detoxify your body so well is because almost all of these ingredients are alkalizing. Lemons and cayenne pepper are one of the most alkalizing foods in the whole world. You will probably ask the question “Ain’t lemons acidic?”.
If we test it using a litmus paper before we consume, yes it is acidic. But once it get digested in our stomach, it will form water, carbon dioxide and an inorganic compound. This inorganic compound is what they usually called it as an ash. The researchers would then test this ash to see whether if it is acidic or alkaline. The ash from lemons and cayenne pepper are alkaline whereas maple syrup is slightly acidic or neutral.
As a whole, the entire lemonade concentrate is alkaline and that helps you to alkalize your body. If you have been eating the Standard American Diet for a long time, chances are your body is very acidic and that would lead to illnesses, diseases and cancer.
After the lemonade diet, you may want to change your diet and lifestyle towards the alkaline way. That way, you would have a healthy, energized and a naturally great body.
