When you read any of The Master Cleanse Diet reviews, you will see that it is also sometimes referred to as The Lemonade Diet.
This is NOT for everyone and is only for people who are looking for quick, short term results.
I tried this for one day back in college 15 years ago. The reason I only lasted a day was because I had absolutely no will power when I was in my early 20’s. It was not the diet so much as I really wasn’t into ANY diet.
In case this diet sounds familiar, it is the one that is a liquid diet; with the maple syrup, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and water. I will explain further.
Master Cleanse reviews all indicate that the program is very easy to follow!
First, squeeze Fresh Lemon Juice, then add Rich Maple Syrup, and Cayenne Pepper into Pure Water. Drink a minimum of six to twelve glasses throughout the day whenever you are hungry. Take a laxative, whichever one you prefer, morning and evening.
There are three phases discussed in any Master Cleanse Diet Reviews you see. There is Ease-In, The Lemonade Diet, Ease-Out. Each of these will be explained and summarized for you below.
The Ease-In step of The Master Cleanse (Pre-Diet Routine) is not as important as the Ease-Out (Post-Diet Routine).
In fact, you could skip the Ease-In completely and begin directly with The Lemonade Diet at anytime.
In my experience, however, beginning The Lemonade Diet with the Ease-In routine not only prepares your stomach for less food, but your mind as well.
The Ease-In portion is to get your stomach ready for an all liquid diet.
Spend two days eating broth based soups and drink plenty of fluids. The next thing you will need to do is gather your Master Cleanse Kit.
Below are the items needed for the Lemonade Diet portion of the Master Cleanse Diet.
Master Cleanse Kit
- Laxatives (to create Daily Detox Bowel Movements)
- Hand Juicers or Electric Juicers
- Teaspoon and Tablespoon Measures
- Naturally Non-caffeinated Herbal Teas (the only cheating allowed)
- Bio-Metric Measures (scales, ph-testers, body fat measures, and other devices to measure the results of your cleanse)
- Journals (to document the process, emotions, challenges and triumphs during the Master Cleanse
Lemonade Diet Ingredients
Mix each of the following lemonade diet ingredients into a large glass:
- 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
- 2 Tablespoons Rich Maple Syrup
- 1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper Powder – or to taste (as much as you can stand)
- 8 ounces (250 milliliters of Pure Water
Roll each lemon firmly between your palm and the counter. Put sufficient downward pressure as you rock the lemon back and forth under your hand. You are softening the lemon to make the extraction of juice more efficient.
Please note that you MUST store lemons on the counter to ripen; not in the fridge. The enzymes that are needed to lose weight will become dormant in the fridge.
The Master Cleanse is a detox diet.
Many of the Master Cleanse reviews you see will skip the fact that the detox occurs largely through bowel movements.
The daily detox bowel movement is the result from the Nightly Laxative, and The Salt Water Flush. The Salt Water Flush is optional but the Bedtime Laxative is not. Some choose to do a Morning Laxative as well.
Some people choose to do this diet for 5 days, a week or two weeks at a time.
According to hundreds of testimonies, you can lose anywhere form 7-18 pounds in the first 7 days. It really depends on your body.
The Ease-Out portion of the Master Cleanse is the exact same as the Ease-In, but in reverse.
If you gorge yourself with solid foods on this stage, you will have severe bowel cramping and possibly be stuck in the bathroom all day.
Make sure to drink plenty of water!
There are many Master Cleanse Diet Reviews out there, but hopefully you have learned through this one that it shouldn’t be undertaken lightly.
