The master cleanse “lemonade” diet, also referred to as “The Great Cleaner” lasts for 10-14 days. In just two weeks, you can lose up to 10 pounds of excess weight. The basic principle of the “lemonade” diet includes detoxification and fast weight loss.
Follow these steps to make the lemonade: Add 2 liters/ 8.5 cups of previously boiled water, some lemon juice (use 3 lemons), 14 tablespoons of maple syrup and half a teaspoon of hot red pepper to a large container. Stir well.
Drink this magic lemonade during the whole day, taking small sips every time you feel hungry.
Lemon juice, as one of the main ingredients, will help your body get rid of the fat and toxins, maple syrup will provide the necessary calories, vitamins and nutrients, and the hot pepper will boost your metabolism.
Nutritionists suggest that you drink other liquids as well, including salt water (mix 6.5 oz/ 2dl of lukewarm water and add just a little salt using the tip of your knife) and green tea, that will ease the elimination of toxins in the body.
To provide the necessary energy, drink 8-12 glass of lemonade a day, which is about 800-1200 calories.
You need to do some special preparation before you start with the lemonade diet (the Great Cleaner). Three days before you start it, replace every semi-processed food product and meat with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Two days before the lemonade diet follow a specific liquid food diet regimen, and the day before you do the lemonade diet you should drink orange juice only (at least 2 liters a day).
