The master cleanse diet recipe is not at all complicated. After all this very successful and popular diet and cleansing program consists of only 4 ingredients and one of those is water. This diet also goes by other names such as the lemonade diet, the maple syrup diet, and the cayenne pepper diet. Bet you can guess what the ingredients are, can't you?
Yep, you've got it, the ingredients are fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water. The exact proportions will vary depending on whether or not you want to make up a glass at a time or a whole pitcher, I'll give you the recipe for both later on in this article.
Here is the basic idea of the diet. You will go on a strictly liquid diet for ten days. During that time you will drink the cleanse mixture throughout your day for your 'meals'. It's also very important that you drink plenty of water. This is a mistake that a lot of people make. They think that just because there is water in the lemonade mixture that that is enough, it's not. Drink water during the cleanse.
It's also very important that you ask your doctor if you can go on this cleanse and diet program. I'm not a doctor and can't give you any medical advice so make sure to ask the person who knows you and is qualified to extend advice.
Do not beat up on yourself if you fail to make it through the ten day program on your first try. It's very common to fail. When you're just sitting around talking about it it doesn't seem that hard, but anyone who has had to go on a strictly liquid diet before, say for a medical procedure, can attest to the fact that it's not easy.
If you set a start date several days up to one week in advance, you can give yourself a lot of time to get yourself in the right frame of mind. During this time you can also help prepare your body physically for the challenge by making slight alterations to your eating habits. If you are used to eating a lot of protein heavy, high carb meals you may want to lessen your caloric intake a little bit before the cleanse so the transition isn't so shocking to your system.
Here is the single serving size recipe:
1/2 Tablespoon each of fresh lemon juice and organic maple syrup. 1/16 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder and 8 ounces of water.
To make a full pitcher so you have the mixture ready when ever you want it here is the recipe:
12 Tablespoons each of fresh lemon juice and organic maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder and 60 ounces of water.
Whether you mix it up by the glass or the pitcher the master cleanse diet recipe is very simple and easy to put together. Staying on this liquid only diet and drinking plenty of water for the full ten day term will help you clear out all the nasty toxins from your body and help you shed up to 20 pounds of unsightly body fat. Just make sure you talk to your doctor before you start.
