What is the lemonade diet drink?
Well, you start with fresh lemon juice and purified water. Instead of sugar, you use organic, grade "B" maple syrup. You also add cayenne pepper. That helps open the blood vessels and get the concoction deep into the tissues of the body. The master cleanse drink is designed to be consumed throughout the day while you are on the diet. It cleanses the body thoroughly, since you are not eating regular food while you do it.
The master cleanse (as the lemonade diet was originally known) is basically a juice fast. For a period of 7-10 days normally, though it can be more, you drink 60-80 oz of a special lemon juice drink throughout the day. In the morning, when you first wake up, you drink a mixture of lukewarm water and sea salt to begin the internal flushing process. At night, you drink a cup of herbal laxative tea to help encourage the expulsion of the toxins that have collected in your body. Master cleanse experts recommend you stay near a bathroom for around an hour after drinking the salt water and the tea... if you know what I mean!
The lemonade diet drink has many benefits. Consuming the master cleanse drink is a quick way to eliminate waste and toxins. As a result, people report increased energy, feelings of physical lightness, improved mental clarity, better sexual drive and performance, and more. Some people also report that due to the decrease of poisonous toxins clogging up their bodies, they have rid themselves (or experienced diminished) acne, athletes foot, eczema, arthritis, and more. These conditions, while they may not be totally caused by toxins, are definitely exacerbated by improper expulsion of toxic waste. And, oh yeah, you can also lose a lot of weight relatively quickly.
As with any "quick weight loss" type of diet (although I stress again, that is not the purpose of this diet), there can be dangers. Rapid weight loss is generally not a good idea, although there may be times when it is warranted. Please consult your physician. This diet does not contain any fiber, hence the laxatives. It also does not contain any protein. It won't kill you to go without protein for 10 days, but you may feel a little weak at times.
The hardest part of the lemonade diet is the first three days. The master cleanse drink and the entire process takes a little getting used to, but the bulk of the shock is out of your system after three days. It is critical that if you start, that you don't get discouraged during those first three days and quit. You will not get the full benefits of what can be a very rejuvenating process. Think of it as "rebooting your body." You will get as much of a fresh start as is possible, and you will find it well worth the difficulty. You will be amazed at the benefits you receive from the lemonade diet drink.
