Mix 13 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and 13 tbsp of maple syrup in 2 lts of water. Keep sipping on this whenever you feel hungry. Don't consume any solid food and follow this diet for 3-10 days. Don't go in for this diet if you are involving in hectic activity, on a vacation or having a period.

Lemon has been used as a detoxifier for a long time and sure it does cleanse the body in a lot of way. As a part of the detox diet, it can also be used for several purpose.

And as far as, whether lemonade help detox and cleanse toxins and fat in your body, it does to some extent. However, lemon diet should be taken with a proper guidance.

Since lemon is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, it helps to detox the body. Moreover, it is very important to introduce citrus fruits like lemon, grapefruit, oranges and kiwi in your daily diet for the same detox purpose.

Lemonade diet, which was originally developed by Stanley Burroughs is designed to cleanse your body of toxins. One of the major benefits of it being its potential to stimulate rapid weight loss.

You might wonder how it actually works. The main reason for this weight loss is that this diet limits your caloric intake by a tremendous amount. This dramatic cut in calories results in a loss of considerable amount of weight in a very short period of time. This diet can be resorted to by someone who has to attend a social function in a couple of weeks and need to lose a lot of weight to look their best for the event.

Lemon diet

Things that you will need

– Spring water
– Grade B maple syrup
– Freshly squeezed lemon juice
– Cayenne pepper sea salt

How to follow?

Lemon diet is not suitable for a vacation or during a hectic period. It should be undertaken in a relaxed manner, preferably at home.

Mix 12-14 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and 12-14 tablespoons of maple syrup in 2 liters of water. This mixture is enough to last for the whole day.

Keep sipping small amounts of this mixture during the day whenever you feel hungry. The mixture can be followed with plain water, if necessary.

Make a salt water flush by mixing 1 tablespoon sea salt in 1 liter of water and drink it all at once. It might seem difficult but it yields better results. The major reason for following this diet at home is because within an hour of drinking the salt water flush, one will experience a bowel movement lasting for about 30 to 60 minutes. It is more preferable to prepare the salt water flush in the evening.

This diet should be followed for 3 to 10 days by drinking the same amount of lemon mixture and salt water flush each day.


While following this diet, no solid food is allowed. It calls for 6 or more servings of the specialized lemonade mixture every day. In addition to this, the salt water flush helps to cleanse the body. Different people incorporate this diet for varying amounts of time, mostly lasting for 2 days. Combining food throughout the entire process would, therefore, defeat its main purpose. However, food can be combined in the beginning and at the end of the lemon diet to ease your body into and off the diet.

Important: Consult your physician before taking up the diet if you have any medical history.

This plan is missing some vital details. I would recommend readers compare this to The Master Cleanse by Stanley Burroughs for more specific details. For instance, you should to drink 16 - 18oz of the cleanse every two hours. You will be on a 12 hr schedule. If you have your first 16oz at 7a you will have your last drink at 7p. And more importantly flushing your system with plenty of water in between the lemonade is a dire necessity. I want your experience on the cleanse to be wonderful considering the challenge of it. So, it's a good idea to look at it from all angles. I am a Cross Training Personal Trainer/ Naturopathic Nutritionist. I cleanse my body every year using the Grade B Maple Syrup, Cayenne, Lemon Juice mixture - commonly known as the Master Cleanse. It is all that, but the article is just missing some very key points that are primary for yielding the highest results
