3 Essential Steps for Lemonade Detox Success

By Curt Joel

The lemonade diet, also known as the master cleanse diet, is a relatively simple process that many people begin with the intent to lose weight. The best reason to start this program is not because Beyonce lost 20 pounds with it. Rather, if you wish to try this diet, do it to cleanse your colon. So, if you still want to try it, here re the 3 essential steps for lemonade diet success.

The first part of the program eases you into the routine and prepares your mind and body. Your stomach will adjust to receiving less food and you will be psychologically prepared. The first part consists of three days, on the first day you can eat fruits and vegetables, removing meat and processed foods from your diet. On the second day you can only drink fruit and vegetable juices, if you do not have a juicing machine create a broth. The third day entails drinking two liters of fresh squeezed orange juice with a tablespoon of maple syrup and water to fill.

The main part of the diet is known as the lemonade diet. To succeed with this it is important to remember even though it is challenging, if you follow the instructions and prepare your meals first thing in the morning, it will go smoother.

Here is the recipe for the Lemonade Diet

You will need to gather 14 tablespoons of hand squeezed lemon juice, three 1-liter reusable bottles, 14 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper, and two liters of water. Place seven tablespoons of the lemon juice into a 1-liter bottle and repeat with a second bottle. Do the same with the maple syrup, add the cayenne pepper and fill it with water. Fill your third bottle full of water as you will need to drink it throughout the day to give your body the illusion you are full.

The second part of the master cleanse diet involves taking in the lemonade and purified water all day. You will feel hungry. When you do, just drink the lemonade and follow it with several sips of purified water.

For some people, the most challenging part of this process is the salt water flush. The idea is to drink sea salt water with a precise ratio of salt to water. You'll need to mix one liter of like warm water with a tsp. of salt. Try to drink the mixture as fast as possible, without hurling. After consuming the salt water you'll need to be close to a toilet for a couple hours. You'll be eliminating toxins from your colon with this process. After you can last 15-minutes without eliminating you're safe to carry on with your day normally. Many people do this part of the diet in the evening or first thing in the morning.

How long should you stay on the master cleanse diet? some master cleanse dieters do it for 3-days while other can remain on it for up to 2-weeks. Remember, this diet is not for everyone. Contact your doctor before you try it. The next step of the diet is known as the ease out part. It is essential part of the diet, so you don't get sick. Also, remember that the master cleanse diet is a detoxification process. This is not a fat loss plan. Your metabolism will slow down if you choose to do this diet. I'll explain.

If you started the diet with a 200 horsepower engine, you will finish the lemon aid diet with a smaller engine. The longer you stay on it the smaller your engine will be. So don't do this for weight loss. If you choose to go on this diet, do it to flush your colon, not as an attempt to lose fat.

How to ease back into food:

On the 1st day you'll drink 3 one liter bottles of O.J. with 2 Tbsp. of maple syrup in each.

Second day drink fruit and vegetable juice or broth.

Third day you can take in all fruits and vegetables.

Fourth eat whatever you'd like, just be sure to focus on "eating clean".

Very important, the ease-out process is essential so you don't become faint and sick.
