The Master Cleanse also known as the Lemonade Cleanse or the Maple Syrup Cleanse is a diet cleanse that involves detoxification and fasting. It is currently popular and has been hyped as a quick weight loss plan.
It involves a strict and severe plan of purely drinking a lemon juice concoction and consuming no food whatsoever. With this diet, you inevitably lose weight. This is because the diet creates a deficit of calories, but chances are that you will have lost muscle and water weight, not the fat from your body.
As nutritionists highlight, the diet lacks all the essential nutrients say calories, carbohydrates, fat, fiber, minerals, proteins and vitamins. Consequently, the diet can be extremely dangerous to your health if followed for an extremely long period of time. Therefore, the diet should only run up to two weeks, and a minimum of 4 days.
There is no consumption of food or any other supplements during the duration of the diet. The Master Cleanse Lemonade Juice Cleanse consists of the following ingredients for one serving:
– Two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (using juice that is not fresh minimizes the diets effectiveness).
– A tenth (1/10) teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
– Two tablespoons of maple organic syrup (Grade B).
– Ten ounces of filtered clean water.
During the duration, you are expected to drink a minimum of 6 servings a day. The other options to this include a Salt Water Flush (a quart of water plus 2 teaspoons of salt mixed) in the morning, and at night, an herbal tea laxative if needed.
The side effects of the fast include hunger, a few headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, sluggishness, constipation or diarrhea.
Following the 4-14 day fast, you are urged to slowly (not drastically) introduce solid food to your body. You should begin with food such as vegetable soup, and then follow it up with fruits and vegetables.
After concluding this diet cleanse, it is not the end. You are expected to continue with healthy decisions such as regular exercise, observing a healthy diet plus stress reduction, in order to maintain the gains that came with the Master Cleanse detox.
A case study is that of LeAnn Rimes, a celebrity 30 year old singer, who is currently on a juice cleanse, according to the Daily Mail. She has joined a list of A-list stars that favor and hype this new diet craze (Beyoncé Knowles is one of them). In addition to the diet, she goes to the gym for a boxing work out session. The results are that she is looking better than ever.
