Secret of how the master cleanse can undo years of damage in 10 days or even less

Cleansing Diet Reviews

Written By: admin - May• 05•12

With so many colon cleansers on the market its hard to tell what works. Usually the best way to find out what really works is to get it first hand from a friend or family member.

The next best place is to get reviews from the internet. However, you have to beware of many of the fake reviews. So, after reviewing many consumer advocate sites that wont really benefit one way or the other I came up with this review or reviews.

Product Features

* Reduce Your Appetite.

* Pure Antioxidant. Rids body of dangerous Free Radicals.

* Lose Weight and Inches

Based on 28 reviews that I fond on this product the overall rating was 4.3 out of 5. Now that is pretty good compared to most other cleansers. The combination of Colon Cleanse, Weight Loss, Antioxidant and Appetite Suppressant not to mention a Metabolism Booster, supersedes the products I have found to date with the product combination.

For best results you need to take it 3 times a day 30 minutes before each meal. One customer emailed the company stating the product didnt work and received an email back right away and sent her a free bottle. Wow, thats some pretty good customer service. Se finished her review by stating "I definitely have more energy from taking this product which is a plus. If I don't lose the weight it is OK because I have the energy I was hoping to gain from its use."

Another review lost 18 pounds after a month is use, another lost 10. However 6 out of the 28 said it did not work at all. One of the reviewers said this, "This product did nothing for me it only bloated me.It did not send me to the bathroom like it said it only make me consipated.I just waste my money and it so expensive. Well I wish others better luck than I had with this product.".

In summary I have reviewed allot of colon cleansers. The results are definitely mixed. However the Acai Berry cleanse seems to work. I have not used it. But the increased energy is a common effect with cleansers. Also, the increased metabolism. Not all will work for weight loss, however I think it has to do with individual body types.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Master Cleanse diet? Reviews and your take on it?
    Whose done it? Don't say negative things about it because I won't listen.
    @Frankie: Your friend can't maintain. I don't eat meat, seafood or really anything bad. I'm a vegetarian right now and eat well as it is, I'm doing this to lose pounds that I can't seem to shed. Get over it.

    • ANSWER:
      Read All About It - as the old newspaper sellers used to say...

  2. QUESTION:
    What are your reviews on the Master Cleanse diet? How many days until you don't have the "Urge" for food?
    What are some tips for sticking to it? What was your typical weight loss on the 10 day program?

    • ANSWER:
      I haven't tried it, but I've only read good reviews about it so I'm really curious about it and want to try it. The cravings are the worst the first three days. I think a good way to stick to it is just to keep busy. Read a book, start thinking about what you´re going to eat after the cleanse in order to not gain the wait again

  3. QUESTION:
    Master cleansing diet age limit?
    Does anyone know the age limit for the master cleansing diet/lemonade diet?
    Also, if anyone has any suggestions, reviews, or thoughts on the diet I would love to hear them :)

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      It definitely depends on your body type (size, height, weight) but I would say about 16 is the youngest. However, most health care professionals and GP's will say 18 years old. This is because almost everyone has not yet fully grown and developed until they are around that age. The important parts of you are at their peak of developing, especially your bones and your brain.
      I reccommend you see your doctor and also someone at a health shop before doing the master cleanse, because even though you can lose weight there are many side effects and precautions you need to be aware of. Good luck though.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is the master cleanse (lemon diet) really healthy?
    So i've been reading up on the cleansing/diet "master cleansing" which is a lemon diet. Many people have different views on it, some say it's healthy, and other say it's not. Has anyone tried this, and has any opinions on it? I would like to see bad and good reviews.
    And also free information sites on it would be great.

    • ANSWER:
      At the bottom there are comments about the master cleanse. Like sort of a review.

  5. QUESTION:
    What happens if I ate a little bit during the Master Cleanse Diet?
    I am on my third day and I ate a little bit of soup and crackers. I feel like I could have gone with out eating, then read some reviews of how people did the diet then when it was done gained all the weight came back on because there bodies were so used to the low caloric intake. After reading that I ate a little bit and thought I would stop the diet since I am feeling sick. I just had the lax. tea and thought I should finish the diet since there is only 7 days left. Does any one know if I would have to start all over or can I just pick up from here and carry on?

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a link to the Master Cleanse Support Forum on curezone.com:

      http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=478

      There are tons of people there who are very knowledgable about the Master Cleanse.

      And the Master Cleanse is indeed very good for you, to detoxify the body and lose weight. You should jus ignore anyone saying otherwise, they aren't familiar with cleansing.

      Be well.

  8. QUESTION:
    Starting the master cleanse diet/lemonade diet?
    I'm starting the master cleanse(aka...lemonade diet) diet next week. So, I wanted to know how many of you have been on the diet? How effective(or ineffective) does it work? So far I've reviewed only good reviews and about two bad reviews. I just want more reviews and suggestion/opinions/encouragement.

    • ANSWER:
      Look I for one can tell tell it the lemonade diet does work. It may not work as well for eeyone, but you will most definitely see a difference. How do i know this? My co-worker started it this weekend and when she cam ein work yeterday, i immideately saw the difference and i did not know she was on the diet, only after she told me. you are suppose to loose at least 2lbs a day, a may sound unbelieveable but the only way you would know is if you try it. Good luck, it does work and she said she feels alot better :P

  9. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Acai Berry/Colon Cleanse diet?
    I desperately need to drop the 50 lbs I have packed on in the past few years of nursing school. Graduation is in one week, and then my wedding is on 9/9/09. I need a good jumpstart to motivate my weight loss attempt and get my energy level up. Heard these were good, but you never can believe the reviews about diet products. Anyone have any personal experience they can share? Good or bad idea? Any tips? THANKS! :o )

    • ANSWER:
      From what I've read in interviews with trained nutritionists, cleanses don't work. All they are capable of is helping you lose water weight, which will quickly come back after you go off of it.

      I might give something like Alli a try though. I haven't heard any reviews, but perhaps it will work.

      I'm sorry I'm not much more of a help, but I tried a soup diet, hoping to lose only five to ten pounds, and found myself nearly passing out the third day. Try to eat more leafy greens, fruits, veggies, and lean protein like chicken or fish. Switch to water instead of soda. Even if the cleanse does work, I doubt you would drop 50 pounds. Don't buy into the hype and do it right.

  10. QUESTION:
    Lemon Diet/Master Cleanse: Is it safe? Does it work? Any cons?
    I'd like to detox, and have been told about the lemon Diet/Master Cleanse (drinking lemonade made from lemons, maple syrup, water and cayenne pepper). Not eating anything for 10 days (minimum) scares me a little! Is it nutritionally sound? Can it be damaging or dangerous? Has anyone DONE it? I'm looking for both positive and negative reviews.

    • ANSWER:
      my dad and sister recently did this and it was great for them. they got rid of all they crap in their bodies and felt so much better! they lost about ten pounds. my dad gained it back because he didnt want to lose any weight (he used more syrup to gain less weight) but my sister kept it off. it has great results and pros in all areas of life. my dad said a con was that he was tired from not being able to drink coffee. so if you are a regular caffeine drinker, i suggest slowly taking in less in the few days leading up to when you plan on beginning the cleanse. they say that they plan on doing it again. by the way, they planned on doing ten days but ended up doing 11. try reading a couple books on it, thats what they did and it really helped them make a decision and specialize the cleanse to their bodies. i highly recommend reading books on it, they have TONS of information and stories from people who have done it. good luck!

  11. QUESTION:
    Just looking to looses a few pounds, in a few days with out starving myself?
    So I decided to try an at home cleansing diet.
    I'm just looking for a few suggestions an the right one to choose, reviews on one's you did try and other helpful stuff like that.

    I do exercise so I don't need that spiel, but thanks anyway :]

    • ANSWER:
      dont eat meat, and eat lots of vegetables and beans. i lost 50 lbs by changing my eating habits alone. on the weekends all we would eat was beans, and that cleanses you very well. if you let them cook in a crock pot all day, like a bean soup or something its good. all of that dietary fiber is wonderful for you. the longer they cook, the less they give you gas.

  12. QUESTION:
    Does The Kardashian Diet Pill Work?
    hi i want that kim kardashian diet cleanse thing lol but im not hearing the best reviews

    have you used it? did you like it?

    • ANSWER:
      Diet pills are a waste of money and don't work, and some have nasty side effects.

      No pill, potion, patch or supplement will help.

      All you need to lose weight is a good healthy diet with lots of fruit and veg - it takes time and motivation. There is no quick fix :)

  13. QUESTION:
    What do you think about the Master Cleanse Diet?
    So the Master Cleanse Diet is a detox diet you are suppose to go on for 10 days. It pretty much consists of only drinking this lemonade drink (with cayenne pepper and maple syrup), lots of water, and herbal tea if you must. It sounds like starving...I dont want to do that...but it seems to have a lot of good reviews. People even say they feel better, empowered, afterward. As opposed to tired and starved.

    I was thinking of alternating this diet a bit and incorporating some raw veggies and some fruit once or twice a day so I am not totally dying.

    Any opinions?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't do it, you get holistic diarrhoea.
      Catherine Collins, chief dietician at St George’s Hospital in southwest London, said she saw dozens of patients suffering side-effects ranging from bowel problems to potassium depletion.
      The Master Cleanse — a starvation diet whose adherents swallow nothing but a concoction of lemon juice mixed with maple syrup, water and cayenne pepper, as well as salt water and a laxative tea for 10 days.

      "Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine"

  14. QUESTION:
    Need a good detox diet?
    I know about the "lemonade diet/Master Cleanse" and not a fan. I've also heard about the Martha's Vineyard Detox - 21lbs in 21 days, but not getting the best reviews on that ... the one I think I may be interested in is "The New Detox Diet" by Dr. Haas. Anyone heard of it, tried it, or have any recommendations for other detoxes that are not harmful to the body & that are effective?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      During the 9 days, you will want to focus on the following:

      -Break your meals down to 5 smaller meals.

      -No meat! For protein, eat Chickpeas, beans, Lentils
      -No potatoes
      -As much water as you want: DRINK A LOT!
      -As much fruit as you want
      -As many vegetables as you want
      -Allowed two 1 cup servings of brown rice a day
      -Allowed 2 cups of low fat milk a day
      -2 - 6oz servings of low fat yogurt a day
      -Up to 4 egg whites a day
      -2 cups of herbal tea a day ( I recommend Green Tea)
      -All items can be seasoned to taste.
      -NO SODA Diet or Regular.

      Now the key to the above is to be creative and keep it all natural. Egg whites can be whipped up to make scrambled or even added to your veggies.

      As for the brown rice, I found it best to flavor it and to let it cook long enough to make it tender. My suggestion on the brown rice is to sauté white onion and garlic in a small amount of olive oil, add the brown rice after a few minutes(let it sweat, while slowly stirring), then add the water as directed on the box(I always add a little bit more) and then I add a low salt flavoring. I also make the whole box/bag at one time and then put 1 cup servings of the rice into plastic containers for a quick reheat at a later time.

      9 days seems like an eternity. If you are a caffeine addict, the caffeine headaches will set in quickly and can last 3-7 days. Fight the urge of the caffeine. Try the herbal tea, while it does contain caffeine, it is a slight different form and with the anti-oxidants, it will help you with the headaches and keeping your body cleansed from harmful ingredients in regular sodas.

      Bottom line on the detox. You are steering clear of foods with added ingredients and names none of us can pronounce. You are cleansing your body of excess waste and allowing the digestive system to rest because it is not having to fight the processing of meats.

      Happy detoxing!

  15. QUESTION:
    Cruise in 2 weeks...need ab workout/diet tips for mom of 2.?
    So I just found out for my bday i'm going on a 7 day cruise. This will be my first cruise. I heard about all the weight gain. I'm already concious and been wanting to lose a FEW pounds but really tone up. While i'm excited to be going on the cruise i'm bummed its so soon and i don't have enough time to lose weight before gaining any on the cruise. Might i add i'm 5'4 128lbs. I know i'm not overweight but i'm much heavier than i was before. I was a 3/5 now i'm a 7. I can fit some 5's but the flab just pokes over or won't let me button them. I like the extra weight in CERTAIN places. I gained 65lbs with both my kids who are 2 and almost 1. I know my body will never be the same, in reality i don't want it to be...i hated being skinny at 5'4 115. My main thing is my "pouch", I have a small frame other than the girls that are DDs. So although i don't look fat and everyone tells me i look great, I'm very insecure and feel like i look 4 months. Really flabby and hangs over my jeans. I know one of my main downfalls is i only eat one meal a day. I work and go to school fulltime on top of two young ones and a house to take care of. I simply don't have time for 3 meals and going to the gym. I would like to lose 5 lbs that way when i'm at my "peak" i'm safely under 130. Can anyone give me good tips on great exercies that focus on the abs and thighs. I love to run but like i said i don't have the time, that way i can work on specifically what i need to and not waste time on other stuff. Also my friend had bought an acai berry diet cleanse, its a 2 week cleanse. I know most people say its a waste of money but i see reviews that people say it worked. If i do the cleanse with 3-4days of running plus 30 min ab workout everyday is it possible to see results in two weeks. I'm not looking to lose 10 lbs or drop down a clothing size in that little time but i'm just saying will i get any results or should i not waste my time starting now and just wait until i get back from the cruise. THANKS.
    if someone could post links to youtube videos for good ab workouts that would be great!

    • ANSWER:
      Forget all the fad diets and regimes the absolute best way to lose weight is to eat sensibly and exercise. Above all don't panic, just relax and look forward to the holiday rather than get all worried about how you look. Guaranteed there will be some gigantic people on the ship and when you see them you be thinking nothing but "and I was worried about how I look?"

      You can realistically lose 8-10lbs in two weeks but there's no fun in it. Who wants to eat salad and do 100-200 stomach crunches a day?

  16. QUESTION:
    Pure Hoodai Acai diet and max cleanse pro ?
    Okay so I've heard about this diet called the "pure hoddia acai berry diet". And it;s been on the news plus has mostly really good reviews. but as i look over it i notice that their are alot of people that try to scam this product . so im just wondering where do i get the product that was featured on new cites like CNN and not the scam that just wants to charge your card ?!!! - help and please if you don't no don't answer and don't be rude either :) )

    • ANSWER:
      The scams you are referring to and the products you are looking for are one and the same.
      Pfizer is the biggest drug manufacturer in the world and they made their research on hoodia public because it was so ineffective and possibly dangerous.
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big "stretch" these con artists are selling.
      Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic".
      The "cleanse" that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. You can buy a quart jar of it for at the grocery. There is no such thing as a "fat burner ".
      Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
      None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      You are spending somewhere between and per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.
      That kind of money pays for a great gym membership.
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.

      If you do foolishly decide to buy any of this stuff, always check the Ters and Conditions link at the bottom of the page. That is where you can usually find out if they are going to rip you off with "auto renewal" shipments at or more.

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the best cleanse and "diet" program?
    I have been reading reviews online and talking to people that work at my gym and at GNC, but I was wondering if I could get some feedback from people who have tried cleanses and weight management/energy powders to see what did and didn't work for them. People that work at the gym or GNC seem to only push certain products for whatever reason.... I know everyone is different and therefore has different bodies, commitment levels, eating habits, etc. but I am looking to do a cleanse and find a good protein mix for after workouts as well as maybe more. I do not like the energy pills or things of those sort, they give me an instant killer headache. If anyone has any adive, suggestion, experience, etc with this stuff I would love to hear it. Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Skye's solution as well as 'quick cleanses' and 'diets' are the wrong way to think about weight loss.

      This silver bullet mentality works well for companies selling products, but in the end its not sutainable and doesn't make you lose weight long-term. Return to basics.

      -eat whole foods (organic fruits/veggies/nuts/seeds/free-range meats)
      -exercise (resistance training is better than aerobics/jogging)
      -drink clean water
      -avoid chemicals like MSG, aspartame, fluoride
      -stay positive, visualize yourself being the weight you want

  18. QUESTION:
    Please- I need answers about the Lemonade diet!?
    Alright so I did this diet before but only for a few days because i thought it tasted disgusting. I have been reading, however, reviews and none say anything about the taste. so if you have done this cleanse before? what did you think of the tast?

    Also if I added steamed veggies and fruit would it throw it off?

    Also I saw someone say they replaced the syrup with honey and it had the same affect. Make sense?

    And how necessary and disgusting is the salt water wash thing?

    Info is GREAT! thanks!

      The REAL question...the only question you have to ask yourself, is this:

  19. QUESTION:
    I want to do the Master Cleanse to detox and lose weight for an event-How soon before the event should I stop?
    Yes, I know Master Cleanse is a cleanse/fast not a diet. Yes, I know the risks. I read a lot of reviews here http://www.fitnesstipsforlife.com/master-cleanse-detox-diet.html and am well aware that I may gain weight back. I do plan on starting an exercise regiment directly after my cleanse to combat fat gain, so I'm wondering if I should end a week before the event? I plan on cleansing for about 5-10 days.

    • ANSWER:
      You should ease out of the cleanse . It mostly takes a few day till your body will crave solid foods ans you should introduce the food back slowly.
      BTW when you are on the cleanse you can exercise (many people do), you should have enough energy. It is very important you stop expecting to gain the weight back. try to establish better, healthy eating habits after you are done.
      By you having thought of weight gain ,you are instructing your body to doing it. So re-frame your thoughts on that.
      Here is a good source of information on the topic:

  21. QUESTION:
    Colon Cleansing Home Remedies?
    I was just looking for people to suggest the best home remedies for colon cleansing to relieve chronic constipation and bloated stomach. I am not in it to loose weight, I am 6'2 190lbs, perfectly normal, and all the website I looked for only recommended some miracle product or the other (OxyPowder, Natra Pure and such).
    So I was just wondering, what natural remedies are out there, and if you don't know a home remedy, and have tried a certain product, please mention that and also if a small review of how it worked for you.

    Thanks

    PS, I eat quite a lot of fast food, about 2 times a week, but other than that, I have a healthy diet and drink a lot of water and work out regularly.

    • ANSWER:
      The two safest and most effective colon-parasite cleanses are Colonix and Ultimate Colon Cleanse. The latter is currently having a special and is less expensive. Do at least a 2 month cleanse.

      Most colon cleanses are just a bunch of laxative herbs that blow out your intestines, but don't break down the old poop lining the intestines and don't eliminate parasites and don't adequately restore normal intestinal flora.

      For more information, read this and all the linked pages under "Read more interesting info...".
      http://www.holistic-wellness-basics.com/healthy-colon.html

      Both of these programs are great - the only ones I recommend to my clients. You'll feel great doing this.

  22. QUESTION:
    should i try the "lemonade" diet?
    ik it has bad reviews ..but will it cleanse me ?..
    how many pounds would a 110 lb person lose by doing this ?
    THANKS NICKYC!

    i agree.. i hate it when ppl shoot down my ideas!

    • ANSWER:
      Depends how tall are you, how much muscle for your body, and how much fat you actually have, if you have no fat to lose then it'll be hard to lose weight.

  23. QUESTION:
    Would this diet be okay for me to to, or is it unhealthy?
    I don't want to do this if it's bad for me.

    All of the reviews are positive. It's supposed to make you lose 5-15 pounds and I'm aiming for 5. I'm only doing this to lose the initial weight and I'll use exercise to tone up and keep it off.

    I'm 16, weigh 122 and I'm 5'3. I already eat healthier than most so having a bad diet after the week won't be a problem.

    Week long, by day, what's supposed to be eaten.
    1. All fruit (except banana)
    2 all vegetables, breakfast being a potato.
    3. All vegetables and fruit, except banana and potato
    4. Bananas and milk (at least 6 bananas and 3 cups)
    5. Beef and tomatoes (except I don't like tomatoes, what can I have instead? It's meant for digestion and fiber)
    6. Beef and any vegetables
    7. Brown rice, juices, any vegetables.
    The website showed why each day was what it was... Fruit to cleanse the system, and the bananas are for potassium and beef for any protein that's needed. Every day only water unless otherwise noted (like day seven).

    After I finish this week, my breakfast will be:
    Blended:
    1-2 bananas
    1/2 cup frozen peaches
    1/2 cup frozen mango
    Spinach
    Water
    Ice
    Into a smoothie.

    Does this seem healthy to do? Since it's mostly vegetable and fruit based it seems to be but I want to make sure, especially because of my age.

    And yes, I exercise and get my daily activity in, and I eat healthy anyway. Like I said this is for the initial weight so then I can keep it off.

    Thank you!

    4. Don't eat foods high in sugar or sodium.
    5. Decrease my carbohydrate intake by 60%.
    6. Eat 6 portions of fruits and vegetables everyday.
    7. Still eat high protein foods such as legumes and beans.
    8. Eat meals in decreasing order with 3 snacks.
    9. 1.5-2 hours of rigorous exercise everyday.
    10. Sleep 8-10 hours every day (8-10 PM to 6 am).

    And the supplement is Applied Nutrition 14 day Acai Berry cleanse and 14 day Fat Burn Flush.
    I'm pretty sure that's what it's called. And I have read some pretty good reviews about it by the people who didn't just take the pills, they had a healthy diet and exercise program.
    I also don't mind spending money on a supplement because they are selling it at CVS for 9 dollars and its 112ct.

    THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
    XOXOXO!
    I'm also 16 years old, 66.5 inches tall, and about 120 lbs.
    My exercising would be running at the gym, bycicling, ballet, pointe ballet, and brisk walking.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you would lose weight.
      If you're over 5'6" though, you really don't need to lose weight.
      If you decide to go with the diet anyway, make sure you don't get below 113 pounds; anything lower is under an 18.0 BMI and puts you at higher risk for serious diseases.
      I would also suggest not getting 1.5-2 hours of exercise a day. Unless you're already at that point, you should start with 30-45 minutes a day and add up about 5 minutes a week, otherwise you're running a pretty high risk of getting stress injuries from too much exercise.

  25. QUESTION:
    Nature's Plus: Whole Food Total Body Cleanse with Acai?
    Has anyone tried this product? I wanted to try the acai and colon clease "diet" or whatever you'd prefer to call it but as I went into my local Nutrition House, they told me this product (Nature's Plus' Whole Food Total Body Cleanse with Acai and Exotic Superfruits) is advertised to do the same thing. It's basically 2 in one but it advises me to take 12 tablets/day for 14 days for the INTENSIVE cleanse or 6/day for 28 days for the MAINTENANCE program. This concerns me because as far as I know, the regular or original acai and colon cleanse diet advises you to take 2 acai supplements in the morning, and 2 colon cleansers at night? Correct me if I'm wrong, I just wanted to do this correctly but it seemed logical to spend a little less money on a 2-in-1 product as opposed to 2 separate products.

    All reviews and feedback are much appreciated, thank you! And I understand a good number of people look down on any sort of diet pills/supplements but this is just a personal decision so no need for negative comments.

    Thank you once again !

    • ANSWER:
      Avoid acai berry free trial offers.

  26. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried Banitol 7 day cleanse?
    I just ordered this Banitol 7 day cleanse after hearing so much about it on the radio. I can not find any "human" reviews on it, all the reviews just seem to be from other diet pill companies bashing the product so you will in turn buy their product.

    I just want an answer from someone who has actually used it!

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I have not used the product you are asking about however I have spoken to 3 people who have.

      1 was a friend and shw told me it did ner no good, it gave her a bad headache for a week. (Obviously it could have been something else)

      The other 2, 1 was happy but not sure of the results and the other thought it was a waste of time.

      As for other Slimming Products, I had problems losing weight and I checked out lots of products.
      I wrote a blog / website all about it.

      I am not affiliated with any drug company either. My reviews are all un-biased, bar The Hoodia Patch because that's the choice I made. You are correct though, most of the sites on Gloogle are all for selling you their products.

      It does work but you do still have to exercise, there is no magic pill.

      Best of Luck

  27. QUESTION:
    Can teens use Colon Cleansers?
    im 17, i want to lose weight, but not a lot. Im too lazy to exercise and have no comittment for diets. I read review on Colon Cleanse Pro, do you think I can use it? What are its side effects? I just wan to lose 15 pounds.

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly, if you want to lose weight, you can't cheat. Only steadfast determination of following a healthy, well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, and meats with regular exercise will result in weight loss.

      As for the colon cleansers, there is no scientific research that indicates its benefits are true. You are likely, however, to suffer from vomiting, nausea, cramps, dizziness, a sign of dehydration (which can cause mineral imbalances), strings of mucus (a sign the body views the cleanser as a toxin), potential interactions with medications, bowel perforation and infection as possible side effects.

      Plus, if you irrigate your colon, you'll probably only experience a few pounds in weight loss due to either a drop in water weight or an accumulation of feces if you're constipated. Other than that, there's no guarantee that you'll keep the weight off for an extended period of time and you can't flush out fat, only waste products from food and drink. Best bet, eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and exercise. Talk to your doctor about this and he or she will say the same thing. Hope this helps and good luck!

  29. QUESTION:
    Whats the best way to lose 5-10 pounds?
    I am looking to lose a few pounds and have a flatter stomach again. I am active and get exercise but not on a regular basis at the gym or anything. I dont have the best diet but have been slowly fixing that. I am hoping to lose a few pounds and would like to do it in a week or two. I was looking at some cleansing pills and quick diet pills. I have found mixed reviews about the ones I have looked into. I know they are not the best idea but after looking through many options I think they may be ok for what I am looking to do. (I wouldnt take them for more than 1 week)

    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with one. If there are any likely side effects? Do you think it would work for what I am looking for?

    Is there a better way to do this that doesnt involve complete dieting and exercise because that isnt something I have the time to really think about right now.

    also i am looking for something somewhat cheap I dont want to spend a lot of money on this

    • ANSWER:
      cleansing pills are a total scam.
      assuming they work, you'd never want to clear out the healthy fauna in your gut.
      I've never had luck with OTC diet pills, and don't know anyone who has.
      This sort of plan will actually save money:
      Continue to exercise. reduce salt. Eat only natural, whole foods — and not too much.
      you might want to keep a food log and count calories: helps stop you from fooling yourself.
      every 3500 calories short of your requirements is 1 pound of fat loss.
      Say your BMR is 2500 calories per day and you exercise off another 500 calories. If you can average 1800 calories of food per day, you would lose 2.4 pounds per week.
      Actually, more the first week, because cutting back on salt will help you lose excess water.
      So
      No fast food. no potatoes, rice, or sugar ("no" means "really try not to")
      whole grain bread — and not much of it
      fresh or frozen vegetables.
      fresh fruit
      lean meat (that looks like dead animal parts)
      be careful about fats (i.e. salad dressings, cooking oils)
      drink lots of water (helps your kidneys clear out fat metabolites)

      use the search engines to see how to calculate your likely BMR (basal metabolic rate).

      1500 to 1800 calories is a fair amount, even so, it's easy to go over if you are not used to that amount.
      try to break up your food allotment into 4 or 5 meals so you never get so hungry that you can't resist binging.

      good luck

  30. QUESTION:
    Anyone ever try a candida cleanse?
    I have been battling acid reflux for years now. With vitamins and a change in my diet I have been able to eliminate the severity by about 60%, but still have ongoing problems with it. I was doing some reading about this cleanse to clean out the colon and digestive tract. I was wondering if anyone has had any reviews regarding this.

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry that you have been suffering. There are so many layers to finding out what's actually going on the the digestive track. It may not be 1 specific thing, like candida, although I believe that's a huge part of it. As different people have different triggers for acid reflux. Only you will know once you figure it out what are your triggers and why.

      I hope the info below will give you some guidance on where to go with this. And I will make it as brief as possible.

      I got acid reflux 4 years ago. Took out all of the known triggers that they say to do (coffee, wine, tomatoes etc) helped about 20%. I did not want to take a reflux medication. I went to a naturopath who specialized in nutrition and she gave me some info to read about food sensitivity diets. She also clued me in on the fact that my history of antibiotic use has killed off a lot of the beneficial flora in my digestive tract. That flora is needed for healthy digestion and it keeps candida at bay. I won't bore you with my trial and error of what foods I took out (gluten and dairy are a few) and what worked and didn't. I did however settle on the SCD plan: Specific Carbohydrate Diet. (Some people call it the Paleo diet). I did it for a year and it worked. I noticed a drastic change within the first 24 hours. Basically it's taking out all grains and starches as they are complex sugars that your gut, being that it's not functioning properly, has trouble digesting. That unabsorbed sugar is now food for the candida in your gut. So even if you are eating healthy whole grains its still a complex sugar. It's not a diet you need to be on forever but they show you how to build your system back up.

      I started cheating about a year ago and over time got worse. The reflux came back. I started back up on the SCD again a month ago and am much happier.

      This may not be your complete issue but the links below might give you some incite into how your problem came to be and what you need to do next. Although most of the below sites do not refer directly to acid reflux, it is one of the symptoms. There have now been cook books published since the last time I started it so it makes it much easier. Some of the sites below talk about this diet for autism and other behavioral issues. Elaine Gottschall pioneered this diet for that reason and found that this diet helped those who also suffered from many different digestive disorders.

      These pages also have link tabs that will take you to more sites for information and recipes to get you started.

  31. QUESTION:
    Diet/Cleansers/Detoxes ...Suggestions?
    I'm looking to make a healthy lifestyle change but before I do I would really like to do a 2-3 day cleanse. I have seen those shake/detox programs at the chemist but 'm looking for a slightly healthier and more natural solution. So if anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it, I'm looking for advice on good programs or products, either suggestions or reviews (good or bad), thanks :)

    *I understand some detoxes can be dangerous but please understand that I plan on doing some more research and then making an informed decisioned with a medical consult :)

    • ANSWER:
      You are really just looking at a painful and drawn out way to empty your entire digestive tract.
      The lemon detox/master cleanse diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      So it does work. but it does not change your size. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it? Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available. The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to convert muscle and even organ tissue first for fuel instead of the stored fat. Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed. The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead. The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  32. QUESTION:
    Are the benefits of dry food a myth?
    Yes its a myth that dry foods are better for cats teeth. A diet of all wet or a wet/dry combo is better for the overall health of a cat. Not all vets know about nutrition when it comes to pets. Many will tell you dry is best when its really not. Research can be your best friend.

    Does Dry Food Clean the Teeth?

    By Jean Hofve, DVM

    Let's get this one straight once and for all: dry food does not clean your cat's teeth! In fact, dry food really has no benefits for the cat. It is merely a convenience for the guardian. If you haven't already read "Why Cats Need Canned Food", that's a good place to start in your quest for accurate, up-to-date information on feeding cats.

    Most cats don't consistently chew dry food; they swallow it whole. Obviously, without contacting the teeth, there is zero effect on tartar accumulation. For cats who do chew dry food, whether consistently or occasionally, there is still little or no benefit. The kibbles shatter, so contact between the kibble and the teeth occurs only at the tips of the teeth. This is certainly not enough to make a difference in the formation of tartar and plaque, which most commonly builds up along (and underneath) the gumline at the base of the teeth.

    Keeping your cat's (or dog's) teeth and gums healthy requires a commitment on your part. Daily toothbrushing and regular veterinary cleanings are still important. The labels on even the special "tartar control" diets like Hill's t/d and Friskies dental diet recommend these additional steps. (Of course, brushing daily with periodic cleaning by the vet are sufficient to keep the teeth healthy by themselves, without using a special diet at all!) Dental diets are very different from all other dry foods. The kibbles are very large, and have a different texture than regular dry food.

    In my experience as a feline veterinarian, I've probably examined at least 13,000 cats' mouths. There was no real pattern to the dental and periodontal disease I saw. If anything, tartar and gum disease seemed to be more attributable to genetics or concurrent disease (such as feline leukemia or feline AIDS) than to any particular diet. I saw beautiful and horrible mouths in cats eating wet food, dry food, raw food, and every possible combination. Many of my patients initially ate mostly or exclusively dry food; yet these cats had some of the most infected, decayed, foul-smelling mouths I saw. If there was any dietary influence at all, I'd say that raw-fed cats had better oral health than cats on any type of commercial food. However, the overall effect of diet on dental health appeared to be minimal at most.

    If your vet still believes the myth of dry food and dental health (which is still actively promoted by the pet food companies despite the utter lack of scientific support for the theory), here are a few references that refute the idea:

    * Logan, et al., Dental Disease, in: Hand et al., eds., Small Animal Clinical Nutrition, Fourth Edition. Topeka, KS: Mark Morris Institute, 2000, p. 487. "Although consumption of soft foods may promote plaque accumulation, the general belief that dry foods provide significant oral cleansing should be regarded with skepticism. A moist food may perform similarly to a typical dry food in affecting plaque, stain and calculus accumulation...Typical dry dog and cat foods contribute little dental cleansing. As a tooth penetrates a kibble or treat the initial contact causes the food to shatter and crumble with contact only at the coronal tip of the tooth surface...The kibble crumbles...providing little or no mechanical cleansing...." The author also reviewed two studies on cat "dental" treats which showed "no significant difference in plaque or calculus accumulation with the addition of dental treats to either a dry or a moist cat food." Of course, this book was produced by Hill's, so it heavily promotes t/d. However, although t/d provided a "statistically significant" improvement, when you look at the actual graphs, the difference between Dog Chow and t/d is not impressive.

    * "...When comparing dry food only and non-dry food only fed dogs...there is no pattern to the trends (some teeth show an apparent protective effect from feeding dry food only, and others show the opposite -- for calculus index, the trend is protective for all five teeth in dogs feed dry food only, whereas for gingival index it is the opposite, and it is mixed for attachment loss). All maxillary teeth are significantly less likely to be mobile in the dry food only group, yet the mandibular first molar tooth showed the opposite effect." Harvey et al., Correlation of diet, other chewing activities and periodontal disease in North American client-owned dogs. J Vet Dent. 1996 Sept;13(3):101-105. Logan (above) assessed this study as follows: "In a large epidemiologic survey, dogs consuming dry food alone did not consistently demonstrate improved periodontal health when compared with dogs eating moist foods."

    * There is an excellent review of the literature by A. Watson (Diet and periodontal disease in dogs and cats. Aust Vet J. 1994;71:313-318). This study is fully of interesting historical items. For instance, one study of cat skulls found evidence of severe periodontal disease in 25% of 80 cats; 75 of the skulls dated from 1841 to 1958, and 2 were from Egypt during the time of the Pharoahs!

    * According to the above review, many of the early studies showed less tartar formation with hard dry food vs the same food mixed with water, and similar results were reported in a study with canned vs dry cat foods. In 1965 a study compared feeding raw whole bovine trachea, esophagus, and attached muscle and fat, vs the same food minced. Plaque and gingival inflammation were increased with the minced diet. Even more fascinating, they tube-fed the minced food and found that plaque and gingivitis did not decrease, "showing food did not need to be present in the mouth to induce these changes." In fact, gingivitis tended to increase when dogs were tube-fed, "suggesting that even the minimal chewing required with minced food had some cleansing or protective effect." Minced food is similar in texture to canned food.

    * A couple of studies showed that *large* dry food biscuits (not kibble) actually removed tartar, which is probably the theory underlying t/d's oversized chunks. Feeding of half an oxtail accomplished the same thing when fed weekly in another study. (I can just see it now, "Brand X's Tartar Control Oxtails.") The study also noted that "No harmful effects were observed from feeding oxtails to > 200 dogs for > 6 years."

    * Gorrel and Rawlings (The role of tooth-brushing and diet in the maintenance of periodontal health in dogs. J Vet Dent. 1996 Dec;13(4):139-143) state that: "In a previous study, we showed that the daily addition of an appropriately designed chew to a dry food diet is effective in reducing accumulation of dental deposits...the addition of the chew to the dry food diet also reduced the severity of gingivitis that developed, compared with the regimen of dry food diet alone." This points out that dry food does not prevent tartar/gingivitis without additional treatment.

    * Interestingly, Gorrel states in another article that "The consensus is that supragingival calculus per se is not directly involved in the etiology or pathogenesis of [periodontal] disease, and is mainly of cosmetic significance if plaque removal is adequate." (Periodontal disease and diet; J Nutr. 1998;128:2712S-2714S.)

    * A more recent review (DuPont G. Prevention of periodontal disease. Vet Clin N Amer. 1998 Sept;28(5):1129-1145) says, "In some dogs, dry kibble or fibrous diet helps slow plaque accumulation more than does soft or canned food...Other chewing behaviors may be even more important for reducing plaque than is feeding dry food." Not exactly a ringing endorsement of dry food! He cites 2 studies showing Hill's t/d to be effective for "decreasing plaque and calculus accumulation."

    * A review of feline neck lesions found no significant influence of diet. (Johnson N, Acquired feline oral cavity disease, Part 2: feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions. In Practice. 2000 Apr:188-197).

    These studies show that dry food does not clean a cat's teeth any better than eating pretzels cleans ours! At best, we can say that dry food tends to produce slightly less tartar than canned food. For cats, the benefits of feeding canned food far outweigh any possible dental problems that may result. After all, it is much easier for your vet to clean your cat's teeth once a year than to treat diabetes, urinary tract problems, and other diseases that are either directly caused or aggravated by feeding dry food.

    Regular home and veterinary dental care are real keys to keeping your cat's teeth and gums healthy for life.
    Your right good quality food is best no matter what way you go. Our Siamese gets Eagle Pack canned twice a day in combination with Timber Wolf Organics Serengeti. Both of which are grain free.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm quite a fan of Dr. Hovfe as her articles are very clear, succinct, and I think correct when it comes to feeding cats. I also feel that the canned must be of high quality, not Fancy Feast, Science Diet etc. which use by-product meat.

      The teeth issue is also one I feel to be as much genetics as anything else (certainly in my case as a human) and my vets all agree on that. I have a 13 yr old kibble addict and every year the vet looks at her teeth and says, "Well, they don't need cleaning this year - maybe next year." Other cats I have need cleanings every year or every other year. They do eat a raw meat diet and canned food.

      If we all ate chips or cereal all day without any milk and only a small amount of water and did not brush our teeth we would have plaque buildup too.

  33. QUESTION:
    Does this work or is it just for water weight?
    Slimquick 7 day Cleanse.

    http://www.buzzillions.com/dz_946495_slimquick_laboratories_cleanse_capsules_review_7120387?prRo=20&reviewSortBy=mostHelpfulFirst&prRpp=1

    These reviews are saying people have lost anywhere from 5-13 pounds
    and I'm wondering, is it "weight" or is it water weight?
    I'm sure it's not a "miracle" pill, which is why I'm doing diet and exercise as well, but does it help with weight?
    Has anyone tried it?

    and I know diet pills aren't very safe, so please don't preach to me about that.

    thanks! :)
    Well, on Zantrex or whatever it's called, I lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks, and a few pants sizes and I'm pretty sure it was fat, so I was thinking this would probably work, too. :P

    I changed my mind about it, though.
    I'm losing weight fast without pills, anyway. lol

    • ANSWER:
      Water weight, so you won't even look any different since it's not fat you're losing. Youll gain every ounce back the second you start eating solid foods.

      Also you should never trust the "reviews" on those sites.

  34. QUESTION:
    which of these 2 detox should i take? read FULL details please?
    I am a young mother of a 2 yr old and a 7 month old. So, yes i had 2 kids within 2 years. Before i got pregnant with my first son i was barely 105lbs. However i wanted to gain weight. Well at 9 months pregnant with him i was up at about 165lbs. I lost alot of weight immediately after birth and worked off the rest within a few months. I got down to about a steady 115lbs where i was pretty happy with. Then i got pregnant with my second son i got up to 160lbs with him. I was terrified when i got on the scale after having him and seeing i lost only 5 lbs when i had a 8lb baby. I tried dieting and exercising, for the past 4 months I haven't lost a single pound. I'm stuck around 135lbs. While i like some areas of my body, there are others that i don't. My stomach is VERY bloated, like i said i have tried strictly dieting and exercising. The weird thing is while i weighted more when i was a few months post partum my stomach was ALOT flatter then what it is now and now i'm back to looking like i'm 4 months pregnant. I've always had a small frame and i'm only 5'3 so its very "apparent' on me. I don't mind the numbers (how much i weigh) i just can't stand the pudges (both my belly and "love handles"). I know i gained alot of water weight with my last son that i obviously never gotten rid of and my BM's have been soooo irregular. I have decided to give a detox/cleanse a try before starting my next diet. I picked up two from GNC, one is the Cellular Research Formulas® Dual-Action Cleanse® With Free Green Tea Fat Burner and the other one is the Acai Power Berry Pure-Body Cleanse. Both had good reviews but i was hoping to get some advice from those familiar with detoxes and who can relate to my situation. Like i said i just want to lose some of this extra weight from my last pregnancy but most importantly get rid of this gut. ***FYI i don't want any smart comments on here. i'm asking for advice on WHICH detox to take and any tips...NOT comments saying "don't just diet and exercise". Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxing is a myth. It is an idea that was never backed by science but by companies selling scam products. Look into it through reputable sources of information and don't waste your money. Just eat healthy, exercise and your body takes take of foreign and undesirable substances on its own.

  35. QUESTION:
    What's a good, healthy drink to stick with?
    I've had a horrible journey with health & beverages. Read my story, & see if you can help.

    I started my "journey" with the popular athletic drink Gatorade. It was always in my fridge & I thought it was really good for you because of all the commercials with the athletes. I was talking to my mom one day while drinking it. She babbled on while I surfed Yahoo Answers, reading her magazine & talking about the "pickle diet". When she spotted my bottle of Gatorade, she lost her mind. She went into this speech about how she saw some big program on CNN about it. Turns out there's piles of sodium in Gatorade, which is salt. & it was terrible for me, especially considering how much of it I drank, & had been drinking everyday. I was really upset. The commercials were complete bull. Unless of course you ran 10 miles a day. Which only like 10% of society actually does. I was furious, upset, & I determined not to let anything like this ever happen to me again.
    This was right around the time Vitamin Water became really popular. I tried it just to see what all the hype was about, & it tasted really watered down, so I figured it HAD to be good for me. So after about a month of drinking it, Propel came out with those commercials about how many calories & stuff are in it, & how you'd have to run miles to work it off, which really angered me. It was Gatorade all over again! They basically lied. "Vitamins + Water = all you need." That's what it says on the bottle. That's true, but you don't need the fat bahookie you're gonna get from all the calories in it.
    From that day on, I was done with popular drinks, & everything I saw a flashy commercial for. I decided to try tea. I switched to Arizona Tea. You know, that milky sweet stuff in the cute green bottle? I drank it religiously. Surprise, there's 51g of sugar in each bottle, & it was putting weight on me. Now I was fed up. & a little fatter. I decided to just switch to a fruit juice, since everything else was either making me fat, or lying to me. I tried grapejuice, because of the great reviews it got on colon cleansing. I forgot why my mom wouldn't let me have it when I was a kid. It's loaded with sugar, just like the tea. But I wasn't about to give up on the fruit juice idea, I switched to cranberry juice, but got a stomach ache after every glass. It's supposed to be really good for women, especially when we're on our periods. It's supposed to regulate our systems & help everything go smoothly. Which it does for most women, but it made my stomach hurt so bad that I felt like I had swallowed Taz from Looney Tunes.
    I lost all hope on anything with well, taste. Lastly, out of desperation, I made myself drink water. Plain water couldn't hurt me right? It's basically like drinking nothing. Wrong. I switched to Dasani water, which I got worms from. Yes, worms. I had to take pills & everything. They told me @ the hospital to NEVER drink water again. So now I'm @ a stand still in my life. I haven't drank anything for a week & a half. I've just been eating. Isn't there ANY drink out there that I can live on without gaining weight or getting sick from? Help!

    Keep in mind that I'm not trying to lose weight, just stay healthy!

    • ANSWER:
      Green tea or oolong tea, hot or cold.

      And I know you're thinking non-alcoholic, but I read somewhere that the healthiest alcoholic drink on the planet is sake and cold oolong tea.

  36. QUESTION:
    Have any large-scale studies investigated the personality types likely to follow "conspiracy theory" fads ....?
    ....related to diet and health (e.g. deploring "artificial chemicals" vs. "natural" cures, favoring "colon cleansing" and "raw foods" versus "evil agribusiness", etc.)

    I'm not interested in reading emotional rants rehashings of the classic debates surrounding these topics. (Those are easy to find through any search engine or by visiting quackery websites.) I'm asking about published psychological studies appearing in peer-reviewed journals attempting to profile the types of people likely to be drawn to various health fads despite the scientific evidence weighing against their efficacy and safety.

    21 Pounds in 21 Days PRODUCTS??? Where can I buy them? (Ontario, Cdn)?
    Hi,
    I'm interested in trying the diet, giving myself a detox cleanse. Not sure about the whole 21lbs but I'd be interested it about 10lbs. Really want to try the book, after reading great reviews.

    My only problem is buying the products. I've only had bad experiences buying things online, and would love to go to a store to buy them - even if I have to drive hours!!!

    Thanks
    Hoping to get an actual answer to my question soon ;)

    • ANSWER:
      You aren't losing fat. You're losing water. The minute you get off the diet your weight will balloon right back up to where it was before, probably higher because your body will think you're in a desert and will retain water like NUTS.

  39. QUESTION:
    How Can I Convince My Mom To Take Me To The Dermatologist?
    I've been to the dermatologist 2 times in the past years for a rash and acne, they didn't give me anything for my acne though. I went to a spa not to long ago to get a facial and the lady giving me a facial said I have bacteria acne on my chin, she said I should go to the dermatologist and ask for Mupirocin (a cream for bacteria acne) I looked up reviews online of Mupirocin and they are all postitive. I really want to go to the dermatologist and pick up the Mupirocin cream but I don't know how to convince my mom to take me to the dermatologist. Should I pay the money to go to the dermatologist since I have it, how do I convince her? PLEASE HELP! The bacteria is spreading! It's really embaressing and I already have cleanse, tone, moisturize and have a healthy diet put the bacteria acne is still the same.

    • ANSWER:
      If you're really concerned she may say no, budge it into a conversation where she seems in a good mood. Look concerned, and say something like, "oh, mom, this woman at the spa said I have a case of basterial acne on my chin and I should -da da da, could you book an appointment?" if she disagrees, mention how embarassed you are, and that she would hate it too~good luck

  40. QUESTION:
    Detoxing.. Any advice for a serious junk food eater ?
    Im a 23 year old female and as far as i know, im in good health. However, for the last 4 years (my student days) my diet has been horrendous. I have eaten nothing but microwave meals & takeaways and consumed large amounts of alcohol. I am not overweight, as i have counteracted my fatty diet with plenty of exercise. My BMI is 22%.
    However, i have now finished university and want to start afresh with regards to looking after my body. I intend to detoxify as well as possible before starting to eat healthily. Basically, i want a clean slate.
    I have read about detox methods and from the reviews i have seen, the 'master cleanse' fasting technique seems to be the most effective. However, i am aware that the information i have read may be fabricated, which is why i am asking about it here.
    I am looking for any advice from people that have tried the master cleanse, or any other detox technique. I'd like to know easy/hard you found it, how you felt after completing it, what effects it had on you, etc.

    Thanks
    @ Darin - let me rephrase, i meant i am not on medication for anything and have no health complaints.

    • ANSWER:
      If that has been your diet, I seriously doubt that you are really in good health.
      Microwave meals are full of cholesterol and salt.
      Obviously alcohol is very bad for you and full of fatty calories.
      Alcohol....there is a reason it is called and in-toxic-ant.

      You may have stayed slim but you are not healthy..............>

  41. QUESTION:
    Clogged digestive system?
    So heres a little background... I realized I probably have a problem with Candida (yeast) overgrowth due to antiobiotic use a while back, sinus infections, and a diet full of dairy, meat, and processed foods instead of fruits and vegetables (and low fiber).

    Before I started any type of treatment for this, my "stools" were irregular, maybe 2 times in 3 days, and I would often either be constipated or have really loose, smelly diahrrea (sorry).

    I first started on the Candida Diet and only ate berries, meat, vegetables, and everything else in extreme moderation (except for some alcohol on the weekends). I then started using Candida Clear by NOW, its a blend of potent anti-fungal herbs which got pretty good reviews. I started taking this to help with the Candida, and thought I would also do a colon cleanse concurrently to make sure there wasnt some kind of blockage making my candida worse. I used Oxy-Powder, which uses ozone (oxygen) to cleanse the digestive system. I think my bowels might really be screwed up though, because when I took the recomended dose (4) I didnt get much results. Once I upped it to 8 pills, I got the effects I had expected but while it said to expect 3 bowel movements a day, I still only got 1 or 2. I also take Dr. Ohhira's probiotics to help replenish the good baceria. Together, this approach led me to lose a lot of waterweight and my acne got MUCH better over a week or two.

    After doing this for a while I decided to use a psyllium (fiber) based colon cleanser to see if it would work better than the oxy-powder. I am still taking Candida-fighting pills but now taking psyllium twice a day. I expected this to increase my bowel movements and maybe even pull out a few "ropes" like you see from Colonix (psyllium is the main ingredient in the system). None of this has happened - since I started taking the psyllium I have felt bloated around my midsection and clogged up. I've gone back to only having bowel movements of about 2 in 3 days.

    Now my main question is: could the candida be why I am so clogged up? Could it be from eating too much meats? What should I do now? I just want to clear out my gut, and now I'm afraid the psyllium I thought would help is lodged in there and might not come out... what supplements could help?

    • ANSWER:
      Psyllium is often bloating in effect. I use Daily Fiber from Yerba Prima--it's got all five types of fiber. Increase the amount of apples, oatmeal (long cook), all types of green leafies and cruchy veggies, prunes and other veggies and fruits and you will be fine. I take 4 Daily Fiber pills a day. Also, do you get enough water. Many foods take a lot of water to digest. Also increase your exercise and you will be amazed how much more regular you can be. Don't worry about how often you go, although it should be once a day. Focus on the other and the system will correct itself. But NO psyllium.

  42. QUESTION:
    Are Detox/colon cleansers just a myth?
    After reading detailed reviews about people taking colon cleansers and seeing various sci-fi like things come out of themselves, I'm wondering if detox is really useful or not. I once took a 7 day Cleanse program from GNC, and I felt better after using it, but I don't know if that had more to do with my healthy diet and exercise. I saw all these pictures of intestinal goop and while most research says that the liver can do just fine detoxing the body, what about the goop? All of that stuff can't be good in the colon, but does it present dangers to ones health to take all that fiber and who knows what else? Technically, what would that in depth, complicated colon cleanse offer that say, a dose of Metamucil couldn't? All those reviews said they got flatter stomachs, better sleep habits, etc etc etc... What is happening here? I find myself oddly interested in a program, but I don't want to just be in the bathroom all the time, especially at work.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The goop is the colon cleanser itself. Those cleansers that advertise those horrific pictures of what was lurking in your bowels basically contain kitty litter which absorbs water, binds together, and forms a nice cast of your intestine.

      I have no doubt that totally evacuating your bowels might feel good for a short while and that rushing food through without allowing it to be digested may cause you to lose weight, but I am dubious of any long term benefits.

  43. QUESTION:
    phentermine d..clinicallix..and lipofuze..anyone tried?
    Ok these 3 pills keep showing up and im reading reviews and I'll see a lot of good reviews and then I'll also see negative reviews so I dont know. For one I dont have a big appetite in the first place so if its only gonna reduce my appetite that doesnt help but I will be back on my 1200cal when I start taking this (haha its the holidays im waiting til after the holiday to start up eating right again its just asking for failure to start the day b4 christmas with all the good food out there but anyways yea) I will also be working out but it would help if it gave me the energy to workout and also had some fat burning things to speed metabolism and curve cravings (cuz I crave carbs and sweets like crazy but what can I say im a 16yr old female). I know diet pills are useless if u sit on ur butt all day and expect them to work I want them to accompany my diet and excercise and hopefully help me to stay on track. More along the lines of clinicallix cuz I heard phentermine d only works for a few weeks and is highly addictive. As for lipfuze havn't looked into reviews but on so many sites its in the tops.So anyone tried phentermine d, clinicallix or lipofuze? I DONT WANT ANY SPAMBOTS things telling me about acai or a colon cleanse I want a real testimonial from real people. Thx

  44. QUESTION:
    HELP! Face Eczema, IMAGES INCLUDED?
    Ok, this is a bit long but it will only takes about 5 minutes of your time, I really need help on this problem, thank you! :(

    I had been applying steroid cream for a long perioid, and then on and off use for 4 years, and 6 weeks ago I decided to stop using those cream because it has worsen my condition, and making my face sensitive to the sun (I guess my skin has been thinned). I vowed to myself I'm not going to use back hyrodocortisone or any steroid cream anymore. I've spent a fortune for this problem and been to many dermatologists and ended up transferred to a senior skin specialist dermatologist, one of the best in my area but still pretty useless. My table has a big pack of prescription creams to the point that I think I can open a pharmacy. I've also tried Elidel and Protopic but it didn't help.

    Anyway, lo and behold when the moment I stopped using the steroid 6 weeks ago, I suddenly had a left rash small patch appearing on around my left smile line area, and one big patch on my right. So I went cold turkey for 2 weeks and cleansed my face with only water. During that period the areas were flaking and dry, and by the end of that 2 weeks I finally washed it with a gentle soap, Cetaphil, and I realised the small patch of rash on the left side got cleared itself, but, the right big patch of rash was still, damn red, painful, peeling, and itchy. I did a research and found out that the real Aloe Vera plant might help the condition so I tried and after one application it took away the pain. But the redness, itchiness and peeling were still there. So my aunt's friend passed me a bottle of enzymes, made out of natural ingredient and I applied it for a week, and the rash went off. Then, another one appeared around my mouth, so I applied that enzymes and it week off after a week. Then this time, a rash appeared on my right cheek and also a light rash on my right chest, so I thought this time the enzymes would help but after 5 days of applying that thing, the rash on right cheek and my chest became more, so I freaked out and stop the using the enzymes water.

    I didn't take a picture of my chest, but I took a picture of my right cheek: http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/6934/rashhy6.jpg

    Then I googled and deicded to try out this cream called California Baby Calendula Cream, I read many positive reviews so I decided to give it a try.

    After a week I guess it healed my condition, the rash on my chest almost disappeared and now my right cheek look like this: http://img56.imageshack.us/img56/6491/photo2339in2.jpg

    BUT recently on the 24th of Dec, Christmas eve, my LEFT CHEEK gotten 2 rash that looks like "mosquito bite and kind of pimple" so I thought maybe the calendula cream would help since it healed my right cheek problem.

    But after 3 days, today, the rash increased to 6 :(

    My left cheek: http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/5418/photo2350ec9.jpg

    By the way, I've been on this "detox diet" for 6 weeks already, I've stop eating eating meat and poultry. I only take one meal a day which consist 1 plate of brown rice, and 3 serves of spinach and broccoli, and 2 fruits. I'd take fish at most twice a week though because it has the omega 3 thing. I've also been drinking only water, 12 glasses a day. I used to sh*t twice a week but ever since I started out this "detox diet" I've been sh*tting everyday. Yes, it does help to clean my bowel and liver but I still don't understand why am I still getting this crap on my face. But I must admit did give in to diary products during Christmas eve by eating the log cake and chocolates etc, so I suspect maybe this is why now my left cheek are having this problem. But do you think I should continue with the calendula cream?

    Also, I came across this question, a lady who had the similiar condition as mine and decided to give up using steroid cream because it ain't doing any good,

    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AnnbGI7NNBKjcnvtqKfx.xHsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080705070028AAU4tGm

    So I sent her a message and asked whether she has found any solution to overcome the problem and this is what she replied,

    http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/6144/kelsovi9.jpg

    After reading her message, I suddenly remembered during the period when I gone cold turkey for 2 weeks and that first small patch of rash on my left smile line disappeared itself. I went on and replied her message to ask more questions during her cold turkey period but till now, after a week she still hasn't reply. I guess she hardly log into her yahoo mail but I'm still praying hard for her to reply my questions. So in the mean time I decided to post my problem here and hope that you guys would give me advise on what should I do next.

    Main question: Should I continue with the calendula cream OR go cold turkey again?
    By the way, I came across this site with two information links about cold turkey is the best cure for effects of steroid abuse.

    P.S. I'm allergic to a fragrance called Lyral so therefore I have not been putting any makeup on my face since the a flare-up I had during 2006. And this year I did IgE blood test and food allergy blood test. My IgE stated 73 IU/ML, I've checked with the laboratory person and he said that any number that’s under than 87 is normal. I'm also not allergic to any seafood or diary products.

    P.S.S. Please don't suggest other creams that contains Petroleum, Mineral Oil, and Paraffin because I've had bad experience with moisturizer cream that have all these ingredients. I found out that those ingredients actually form an oily film that sits on top of the skin, preventing moisture from evaporating. It has a drying effect, it actually suck out the moisture of your lips/skin, which is why you have to constantly reapplying it.

    Does the Acai Berry really help you lose weight? is it bad for you?
    Hi I am 18 years old, and am on my last 10 lb. before I reach my weight loss goal (I am 138 and am going for 128) but no matter how much I exercise (I dance 8 hours a week, and cycle 4 days a week, and do some kickboxing occasionally) and how many food I cut out (I cut out all processed food and eat lots of veggies and fiber rich foods) I cannot get the 10 pounds to go away.

    Will this supplement help me lose more

    http://www.walgreens.com/store/catalog/Food-and-Supplements/Brazilian-Diet-Aid/ID=prod5770102&navCount=1&navAction=push-product#review

    It isn't the popular "cleanse" one. Will it be bad for me to take this?

    Thank you very much :)

    • ANSWER:
      Any supplement is a 50/50 chance. Overall it's not going to be bad for you because it's approved to be sold in the United States, that doesn't mean that it's results have been evaluated by the FDA though. If it isn't too expensive I say try it, I never had any luck with Acai but I do know that it's a superfood and helped out my skin.

      I would recommend (to lose that last, stubborn 10 lbs) you add some superfoods to your diet, but maybe not in a pill form. Throw some acai juice with blueberries, a banana, apple, protein powder and frozen yogurt into a blender and take that smoothie with you to dance for a boost. (Obviously try what recipes work for you and your taste buds). Make sure you're getting enough protein and keeping your simple carbs low (don't cut carbs altogether, please!)

      Most of all, it sounds like you do a lot of cardio but how much weight lifting do you do? It seems contradictory but if you throw in two days a week of weightlifting I bet it will push you over that plateau you're at right now. Cardio is good, but won't build muscle, if you have muscle your body will naturally burn more calories and shave off that last ten pounds in 4 to 6 weeks tops.

      To avoid bulking up: keep your calorie count low, stick to high reps of low weights, and ensure that you stretch out really well after every workout [as a dancer that should be no problem for you :) ].

      Good luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    Question for diagnosed eating disordered individuals or ED specialists (stats included, please read)?
    i consider/regard myself as somebody living with some kind of eating disorder, but, of course, i am uncertain because i've never been diagnosed. i know one should avoid self-diagnosis; i just feel that i have problems with food and weight control which may or may not be sub-clinical (ED-NOS?).

    i've always been "thin" to my peers, friends, and family--at my highest weight, my BMI was about 19.4 (5'6" & 120lbs); at my lowest, 15.8 (98lbs). i'm now 5'7 and 108lbs (16.9 BMI). my eating habits/patterns, and weight, accordingly, have been fluctuating relentlessly for the past three-ish years (restrict to 600 cals a day + exercise / binge every day for a period of time / fast for a day or two / start over).

    i have talked to (other) sufferers (of anorexia nervosa, in particular) and seem to relate strongly to them. i generally feel that i understand these friends' struggles...but then, i do not wholeheartedly believe that i am thin enough to warrant aid or even recognition concerning my behaviors. also, i don't feel that i'm severe enough...i read that a criterion is "refusal to maintain healthy body weight," which applies to me. but sometimes i go weeks at a time just making sure i maintain my weight (i feel relatively "safe" as long as i am under 110 lbs, knowing that i am still quite underweight).

    i treat my body as my unfortunate coping mechanism and use "dieting" as a security blanket. the biggest trigger for me is the memory of my childhood sexual abuse (just to clarify: i was the victim), which makes me feel shameful and dirty; through anorexia-or-whatever-this-is, i try to "cleanse" myself by abstaining from food. i have tried diet pills & meal replacement shakes in hopes to aid my weight loss. currently, i intend to and am actively trying to lose weight. i feel that my ideal range is between 86 and 102 pounds (more specifically i think i should weigh 92-97).

    my nails are generally brittle and blue-gray in color; i bruise very easily; my lower extremities are near-constantly sore. i also have fine/light "fuzz" on my abdomen and arms (lanugo?) and am very sensitive to temperature extremes (especially hating the cold, which, to me, is anything below 72 degrees F). my period is irregular and occasionally i don't get one for a month or two, but it hasn't stopped altogether. i have been told that all these things may be symptoms to be reviewed.

    from your perspective/in your experience, do i have an ED? if so, what is it?

    trolls will be ignored. and you don't have to tell me i'm fat: i already know i'm disgusting. you also don't need to tell me i'm too skinny, because that's obviously false.

    and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE DON'T TELL ME TO "JUST STOP GOING DOWN THIS MISERABLE PATH." I CAN'T STOP. the mindset which drives me will not leave me.
    i get really anxious around food--especially when it's a "surprise" (like if my boyfriend buys me a 'treat' i'll start shaking and getting upset because i am terrified of the IMPENDING CALORIES).

    these days (past couple of months) i generally eat 800-1200 calories and burn 300-500, putting my net at 300-900) with one or two binge days weekly (eating till it hurts...2,000-3,000 cals total). binges happen when i feel i need something to numb my wild emotions and consciously stuff myself.
    i get chest pains sometimes and occasionally have an irregular/fluttery/palpitating heartbeat.
    i chew and spit my food frequently.

    • ANSWER:
      you almost for sure have an eating disorder , and it seems very bad already . being sexually assulted is known for triggering anorexia or bulimia , so it makes sense that you could be anorexic. I advise you to seek help from a doctor or therapist asap ! good luck

  47. QUESTION:
    29 pcos with acne/breakouts?
    I am 29 female, nearly 30, i was diagnosed with pcos 2 years ago, did have acne and breakouts in my teens and early 20's which by 25 i had a face as clear as a sheet of paper, had a very basic facial routine, and never wore makeup, and whatever else had caused skin problems in past had obviously got better.
    Then after that i started wearing lots of makeup, latre nights out etc, not taking it off or maybe what i used was not good enough.
    Have had family stress and work stress etc, diet not great, and always changing facial products, mostly because of having the desire to go back to how i was a few years ago, just don't know whats gone wrong.
    Have since being diagnosed with pcos given oral antibiotics and topical which helped a little, and the pill cerazzette which probably helped the most.
    Was taken off that last year, have since seen dermatologist who gave me oral topical for am and retin a for pm, both of which i've reduced/stopped using due to it causing severe redness and soreness, and bumps coming up which went away when i stopped or reduced usuage, gp also put me back on pill called marvelon and will be seeing him friday for a review of this.
    I will also be mentioning that dermatologist treatments didn't do a huge amount, and am also thinking about having a allergy test done as they say alot of ingredients in things or foods can trigger it.

    But i need a decent regular skincare routine, not sure if it has to involve cleanse tone moisturise, but at least need a decent makeup remover and cleanser or all in one.
    I know it won't make miracles happen, but i know i need to keep my skin clean.
    I read online a long list of ingredients that are in especially acne prone products which are blocking and irritating the skin more, even though the packaging says oil free etc.

    If anyone can suggest something for acne/brakout prone sensitive skin i would be very greatful.

    Thankyou for reading and i hope i get some decent answers. Thanks

    I’ve spent enuf cash on diets.

    There’s a website I found googling weight-loss cleanses, http://www.nulean-acaiberrydiet.com also claims Acai doesn’t do much, has anyone tried Nulean????

    I like the sound of it, but want some feedback.

Next I started eating better smaller portions 3 times a day no carbs just meat veggies and fruits.

  49. QUESTION:
    Can teens use Colon Cleansers?
    Im 16, and I want to lose weight. I know how harsh diet pills can be. I have no patience for exercise and cant stick to diets. I saw a review on the Colon Cleanse Pro, am i able to use it? Does it have harsh side effects, and what are they?
    I don't plan on wanting to lose a lot. Im not really fat. I just want to lose around 15- 20 lbs. will colon cleansers help?

    • ANSWER:
      Losing weight through a colon cleansing diet is the new popular way to lose weight. We all need a certain amount of fat and protein in our diet, but the key is to balance is out. A colon cleansing diet can help detoxify our bodies. It’s important to remember that a quick one-time solution will likely not do the trick for permanent weight loss. It’s important that we lose the weight slowly and correctly, so that the weight stays off. Fiber is an important part of colon cleansing. Exercise is important to keeping your body healthy and to keep everything working properly.

  50. QUESTION:
    Have any large-scale studies investigated the personality types likely to follow "conspiracy theory" fads ....?
    ....related to diet and health (e.g. deploring "artificial chemicals" vs. "natural" cures, favoring "colon cleansing" and "raw foods" versus "evil agribusiness", etc.)

    I'm not interested in reading emotional rants rehashings of the classic debates surrounding these topics. (Those are easy to find through any search engine or by visiting quackery websites.) I'm asking about published psychological studies appearing in peer-reviewed journals attempting to profile the types of people likely to be drawn to various health fads despite the scientific evidence weighing against their efficacy and safety.
    Sources/citations please?

    • ANSWER:
      apparently it never crossed your mind that the people running these "quackery" websites might be supported by the actual quacks. so conspiracies don't exist, do they? then you had better get to work straightening out all those misinformed history book writers. tell them that all the revolutions throughout the centuries were just spontaneous popular uprisings, that hitler's takeover of the german government was legitimate, and that the bailout of goldman sachs was the will of the american people. next, you'll have to get a large portion of the criminal code annulled, and delete all those crimes beginning with,"conspiracy to...". use your brain, man, instead of just repeating other's ignorance and disinformation.


Cleansing Diet Program

Written By: admin - May• 04•12

We need fat in the diet. Fat is a necessary nutrient that we cannot live without. It helps the body use vitamins A, D, E and K. Fat is necessary for healthy skin and body organs. It also helps you to feel full after eating. After a low fat meal, you will be hungrier sooner.

With this in mind though, too much fat in the diet can lead to health problems such as heart disease, some types of cancer and obesity. All fats are not created equal. Knowing the difference between the types of fat can be helpful in controlling cholesterol as well as weight.

Saturated fat comes from animal products. This is the type of fat that is solid at room temperature. Butter, chicken fat hardened on the top of soup, cheese and milk all contain saturated fat. Too much saturated fat in the diet causes cholesterol to accumulate in the arteries. When this happens, blood flow becomes restricted and heart attacks and strokes become more of a possibility. It's the saturated fat you need to reduce in your diet to stay healthy.

Unsaturated fat comes from foods like nuts, seeds, fish, vegetable oil, avocados and olives. This type of fat can help the saturated fat move through your body so it is actually good for you.

We need fat in the diet so choose unsaturated fat instead of saturated fat.
Keep in mind that all fats are higher in calories than carbohydrates and protein. The total fat in your diet should be no more than 30% of the daily intake of calories.

Here are five tips to reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet:

Eat low fat dairy products and lean meats
Choose vegetable oils and shortening instead of lard
When making soup, put the pot in the refrigerator overnight and skim the fat off the top in the morning. Check the serving sizes of cheese and meat and measure just that amount
Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains

You need fat for a healthy and strong body. As with most aspects of healthy eating, balance, variety and moderation is the key.

    I need to find a "cleansing diet" program that's not really expensive to purchase? Does anyone know of one?
    I can't spend more than dollars or so, also need to find out if you can do a cleanse without buying special pills and powders? If so, what type foods should you eat? I need to drop about 15 or so pounds for an event at the end of May...I had a baby a few months back and I still feel bloated and tired because of the extra weight. I'd like to loose at least 15 rather quickly for my event and then get on a regular diet program (ie Weight Watchers) to loose the remaining pounds.

  2. QUESTION:
    Need help with Master cleanse diet program?
    I plan to undertake a 10 day master cleanse diet consisting of lemon, cayenne pepper, maple syrup. I need suggestions on how to go about taking this diet effectively for 10 days. Are there side effects to this diet? How can the body adjust itself to solid diet after the cleansing is over?

    • ANSWER:
      There are side effects and they're all bad.

      It's a dangerous con. Dont do it.

  3. QUESTION:
    Does the Amazing Cleanse diet program really work?
    A user named Pex has given an Answer to about 1000 diet questions here - linking to this website: http://diet4cleansing.com/ (I think there are some other links which he/she has given which lead to the same site).

    I don't know if Pex is somehow who was a customer of this diet & became a big fan & is promoting it out of the good of his/her heart - or is affiliated with this program & is out to promote it (not a bad idea from an advertising stand point, but not quite ethical, either).

    Has anyone tried this cleansing diet - or something like it? Any success?

    • ANSWER:
      If Pex has been promoting this repeatedly, then I agree: Pex is out to make money on the link and should probably be reported as using this site to make money, a violation of Yahoo Answers policies.

      I wouldn't fall for it - the top pictures look doctored: do you notice how fat the woman's face still looks? If she shed that much weight, you'd see it in her face, too!

    can i use honey instead of maple syrup in master cleansing program? or what is the best alternative?

  5. QUESTION:
    Would a cleansing program be a good way to start out a diet? Has anyone done this and if so does it work?
    I have heard of these and have a couple extra days off before going back to work and thought maybe I would try this.

    • ANSWER:
      That is a bad idea. Starving yourself will only make you more hungry and prone to gain weight later. Besides, "cleansing" increases you ketone body production, and they can be very toxic!

  6. QUESTION:
    whats the best cleansing program out there,diet?
    looking for something to help me cleanse my body to help me be motivated to keep losing weight , i never tried losing weight by taking any weight lose supplements and im reading abt cleansing the body but don't know what to do next and how that works and if it does work or is this another money getting scam .

    • ANSWER:
      There is no science behind "cleansing" as an effective means of weight loss. The fact that there are so many advertisements for it should be a big clue that it is primarily a scam. "Cleansing" became a fad in the 1970s with the "Master Cleanse" program which indeed caused some people to lose weight - but only because it was a form of low calorie fasting, which can cause temporary weight loss but ultimately causes your body to go into starvation mode and rebound into fat once you start eating normally again.

      You would be better off gradually adding exercise to your schedule, and finding healthier foods to eat. There are plenty of natural, delicious foods and eating habits that can make you feel better, think more clearly, lose weight, and have more energy.

  8. QUESTION:
    I want to do the Master Cleanse Diet program and I have alot of questions about it.?
    Ok hi every1 im 15 and 5'4' and weigh about 130 lbs and i want to lose 20-30 lbs. PLz dont diss me cause im still gonna do it but i have questions. 1st does this program work. 2nd how do you make the lemonade maple syrup cayenne pepper drink. 3rd do u cut the cayenne pepper in it in chunks or do u use the powder 4th if i do it for about 2-3 weeks and exercise about how much weight will i lose because i exercise about 1 and a half to to hours every other day. 5th if i do it and it does come off will i be ably to keep it off because my friends did it and 90% of them gained the weight back in about a month
    ok if you need to know for how long ill do it i want to do it for about 2-3 weeks

    • ANSWER:
      I have done it and it helps you lose weight but it's mostly water. You gain back at least half the weight you lose during the cleanse.
      1) Yes it does but you will gain some of the weight back
      2) You can look online. For the drink you mix 1 tablespoon of Grade B maple syrup (not A), 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, half a lemon, and distilled water (water that has no minerals or anything..dead water)
      3) Don't buy cayenne pepper, but the powdered cayenne at the grocery store, much easier and works the same
      4) The book recommends at least 10 days but it's really up to you. Good luck because when I did it i only survived the 4th day.
      5) I didn't lose that much and I gained it all back to be honest. If you go off it then you need to stick to a low calorie diet and eat healthier.

  11. QUESTION:
    Does a detox diet help to kickstart a weight loss program?
    Would anyone recommend or comment on a cleansing/detox diet they've done.

    • ANSWER:
      I did a 3 day detox last year. It was tough but totally worth it. You may have seen it on the internet, it's called the master cleanse. First you will need a gallon of distilled water, 2 lemons, 2 table spoons of cayenne peper and 2 teaspoons of grade B pure maple syrup. Distilled water, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice are great for leaching out impurities from your system. When you detox, you also eliminate the good too, vitamins and minerals. Believe it or not, the grade B maple syrup is high in vitamins and minerals and it makes the drink a little more tolerable.

      The first day is by far the toughest. You'll be cranky, annoyed, irritable, lonely and tired... HANG IN THERE!!! The next day you'll start feeling the effects and you'll be happy. Sometime in the afternoon, your head will start clearing out and you'll have more energy. The third day will be even better. Every once in a while you'll go through little irritable, foggy head phase, but that will pass.

      When you are done you'll be a little weak but in a day or two, you'll be back and better than ever. Really just as important as doing the fast, is putting good things in your body afterwards.

      Good luck!!!!

  12. QUESTION:
    Will a parasite detox program work if I don't change my diet?
    If I continue to eat sugar (not too much), dairy, and bread, will a parasite detox still work for me? I weigh about 100 pounds and will lose too much weight and feel weak if I actually follow the diet! The cleansing system is called Paragone.
    In response to Victoria, I weigh about 103 pounds, not 103 pounds overweight, lol

    • ANSWER:
      Nice spam huh?
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge and very rarely parasites in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well.
      Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat if we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      Cleanses and detoxes actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system. Search gut flora to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      I have recently added the supplement milk thistle to my very limited supplement regimen (multi and fish oil). I tried the 1000mg and it gave me serious diarrhea. I am on a 175mg and everything is grand. Milk thistle supports liver health.

  13. QUESTION:
    Body Cleansing Programs?
    I have a gastroenterologist who recommended me to take Miralax & Suppositories everyday for the next 3-6 months. This will be too harsh on my body. I am a diabetic and I have severe high blood pressure. I have been advised to start on a body cleansing program because the constant fatigue is the main problem. OTC Regimen seems to work for a little while and then I start getting constipated again or I will have to discontinue because I get dehydrated from diarrhea. I have been advised by the gastroenterologist to be on a high fiber diet. I have been advised to eat only fruits and vegetables from the internal medicine physician. No breads, No Sugar, No Salt, No Caffeine. No Fried Foods. No Excuses. I have been advised to start on a vegetarian meal program that is designed for diabetics.

    So, I am searching for a high fiber diabetic vegetarian meal program and complete body cleansing program for overall health. I am suppose to eat 6 small meals a day. I have digestive problems so it is hard for me to take multivitamins. I would eat lot of high fiber foods and would get constant bloating and gas discomfort. So, I would need to be on a cleansing program and drink plenty of water only with every meal to eliminate the symptoms.

    So, I was told if I could afford it; they would recommend me to start on the DrNatura Colonix Program for the first three months along with the Digestaid and Flora Protect Probiotics for the first three months to start regulating the bowel movements and eliminate the toxins that causes fatigue. It would cost me 3.24 for the three month program but do you think that it would be worth a try?

    I have asthma, severe high blood pressure, diabetes, acid reflux disease, and internal hemorrhoids & external hemorrhoids. I have been breaking out in so many rashes lately but they said that the body acid and diabetes may be the cause of this and a body cleansing program and vegetarian diet should eliminate this program within the first two weeks.

    It is amazing what the body goes through. I have three children and I would not want them to lose their mother over something that can be avoided. A body cleansing regimen is important for any woman or man and that is why I had to have the colonoscopy. I am searching for a healthy lifestyle and I am not good at staying on a diet program with cleansing out the body first. The body cleansing program is suppose to be a jumpstart towards a healthy lifestyle. It is suppose to take the taste of junk foods away and that is what I need. A program to coach me the right way to maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain on this healthier lifestyle for the rest of my life.

    • ANSWER:
      0 sounds like a lot of money for something you can do yourself. You don't need a jump start, you need to find a healthy diet that you can stick to.

      For the most part all colon cleansing products are scams. Colon cleansing is wholly unnecessary and a waste of time and money. Regardless of hype, regardless of ingredients, method, or testimonials, colon cleansing is quite purely and simply medical quackery. The one exception to this is when it’s prescribed medically as in preparation for an examination such as colonoscopy.

      The main reason it's called a scam is because the colon is a continuously self-cleaning system. Everyone knows that food goes in at the top of the GI tract and the leftover waste material quite naturally comes out the other end.

      There is little scientific evidence to support any benefits of colon cleansing. It's generally unnecessary and at times may even be harmful. Although doctors prescribe colon cleansing as preparation for medical procedures, it doesn't do anything for the symptoms you listed. Their reasoning is simple: The digestive system and bowel naturally eliminate waste material and bacteria — your body doesn't need enemas or special diets or pills to do this.

      If you are seriously considering colon cleansing, consider trying these steps first:

      * Drink plenty of fluids, including water
      * Eat a diet rich in fiber, low on red meat is fine. it doesn't need to be vegetarian.
      * Get regular exercise, like walking for 30 minutes each day, or better

      These simple step will get the same result, and you saved your money. Good Luck!

    Where can I get Maple Syrup, Sea Salt & Cayenne pepper in Bangalore?
    I'd like to take up the master cleanse diet program. I am finding it hard to get the ingredients here in Bangalore. In supermarkets all over I can find only pancake syrup (instead of maple syrup), iodized salt (instead of sea salt) and red chilli pepper (instead of cayenne pepper). I guess the iodized salt and red chilli pepper are good enough but not the pancake syrup. Any place I can find maple syrup. Help much appreciated. :)

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best cleanse and "diet" program?
    I have been reading reviews online and talking to people that work at my gym and at GNC, but I was wondering if I could get some feedback from people who have tried cleanses and weight management/energy powders to see what did and didn't work for them. People that work at the gym or GNC seem to only push certain products for whatever reason.... I know everyone is different and therefore has different bodies, commitment levels, eating habits, etc. but I am looking to do a cleanse and find a good protein mix for after workouts as well as maybe more. I do not like the energy pills or things of those sort, they give me an instant killer headache. If anyone has any adive, suggestion, experience, etc with this stuff I would love to hear it. Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Skye's solution as well as 'quick cleanses' and 'diets' are the wrong way to think about weight loss.

      This silver bullet mentality works well for companies selling products, but in the end its not sutainable and doesn't make you lose weight long-term. Return to basics.

      -eat whole foods (organic fruits/veggies/nuts/seeds/free-range meats)
      -exercise (resistance training is better than aerobics/jogging)
      -drink clean water
      -avoid chemicals like MSG, aspartame, fluoride
      -stay positive, visualize yourself being the weight you want

  19. QUESTION:
    Need some advice for a cleansing/detox program.?
    I have done a lot of research, briefly consulted with an alternative medicine doctor and have nutrition experience so I am not going into this blindly or with the wrong intentions. With that said, I would like to hear from anyone who has attempted and/or completed any kind of cleansing or detox "diet". My goal is to remove toxins and reintroduce complex foods in an effort to see what aggravates my allergies. I am not concerned so much with weight as I am at about normal. This is not to quickly remove any illegal substances in order to pass a test either. I am simply interested in what works or not for people who have tried serious methods. I fear the lemon, syrup and cayenne diet (Master Cleanse) is too restrictive and nutritiously deficient but am open to anyone's experiences. Any supplements that were beneficial I would like to hear about too. Thanks ahead of time for serious answers. be well.

    • ANSWER:
      OK, it depends whether you want to do a thorough detoxification program, or something quicker but not as 'deep cleaning'.

      Personally and professionally I recommend a systematic holistic detox program. This in itself may take care of your allergies.

      It sounds like you're already knowledgeable about nutrition and maintain a pretty healthy diet so the detox, though lengthy, should be simple for you.

      First, make sure you're drinking 8 to 10 glasses of pure water daily. Start out with a colon-parasite cleanse, then a kidney cleanse, then a liver-gallbladder cleanse.

      Too much info to get into here, so you can read these pages (and all the links under 'Read more information...'). There are some supplement recommendations for this process too.

      Holistic detox:
      http://www.holistic-wellness-basics.com/holistic-detoxification.html

      Most detox 'quickies' just skim the surface, but are pretty ineffective as far as deep detox at the cellular level. So it depends on your health goals...

  20. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the Quick Trim Burn & Cleanse Diet? If so did it work?
    The reason I ask is because I'm 24yrs old, 5'7 and weigh 210lbs. I've tried so many diet pills and so many diet programs. I'm just so tired of it and want to loose weight. I've only lost 10lbs in a 2yr period and I'm hoping the Quick Trim will work...

    So if there is anyone out there, who could recommend on what I should do. Please let me know. Thank You

    • ANSWER:
      don't look to diet pills as an answer. the only thing that works is working out and eating right. You can jump start your diet by doing a cleanse but really, diet pills DON'T work.

      I was at my heaviest last year (age 25) when I was 5'4 and weight 195. Now i'm a healthy 130. It look a year to lose the weight, but I did gain it in a span of 4 years. There's no secret. Go to the gym.. work out, eat more fruits and vegetables, cut down on the carbs, try not to eat much late at night. Be active, eat smaller portions. Just b/c something is healthy doesn't mean you can go overboard with it.

      If you're lazy you can't lose the weight...its that simple. you yourself know why the weight came on.. just be honest with yourself and ones you can acknowledge where your faults are, then u can change it and have a better lifestyle.

      The other thing I want to mention is that u have to look at this as a lifestyle change... thats why its ok to "cheat" or allow bad food but just balance that out with better eating or a few extra mins in the gym. and that's why crash diets don't work b/c it doesn't sustain long term results. I really hope this helps. As someone who was really overweight and hated herself b/c of it, i wanted to do something. You can too!

    • ANSWER:
      I have used Colonix by Dr Natura. It is expensive but it works. You might want to try searching on ebay, that is where I got mine at a much lesser price. The link is: http://www.drnatura.com/colonix_program.php
      Also another great product that I have used for quite sometime now and also get mine from ebay is Dr Schulz intestinal formula #1. You can even read the reviews here:http://www.amazon.com/Schulze-Intestinal-Formula-Cleanse-Laxative/dp/B0009WSBAK

  23. QUESTION:
    What are your reviews on the Master Cleanse diet? How many days until you don't have the "Urge" for food?
    What are some tips for sticking to it? What was your typical weight loss on the 10 day program?

    • ANSWER:
      I haven't tried it, but I've only read good reviews about it so I'm really curious about it and want to try it. The cravings are the worst the first three days. I think a good way to stick to it is just to keep busy. Read a book, start thinking about what you´re going to eat after the cleanse in order to not gain the wait again

  24. QUESTION:
    I'm on the 7 day body cleansing detox diet and I've had no side effects...?
    I started the detox diet on Sunday because I suffer from IBS, here is a little look at it if you want...

    http://www.totallynatural.com.au/15-day-detox-program.htm

    The only side effect I've had is going to the toilet alot.

    I'm 22, female, 155cm and 54kg, non smoker/drinker and work out 5-6 days a week. I was told not to do any exercise on this diet but I've been doing as normal with no side effects.

    I usually eat alot of sugary foods and overeat sometimes. Why haven't I had side effetcs? When will I have side effects?

    Also I've noticed my tummy has shrunk down again, is it because I am having no sugar, no wheat or both?

    Thanks :)

      Targetted weight reduction is quite tough, some would declare impossible, nevertheless the sole method that definitely worked for me is green tea, it can be seen in the resource box underneath, they have a handful of free trials left, it was highlighted in Fox News and USA Today. I worked off 25 pounds, it definitely does work!

  25. QUESTION:
    What is your Favorite New Years Diet?
    Like most of the women in this world, one of my resolutions is to loose weight. Mainly my baby weight from having my daughter 7months ago.
    I have looked at a few diet programs, but I am wondering what diets have worked best for you?
    Did you give up carbs, or sugar? Did you count calories, did you do a master cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't go on a fad diet. They DON'T work. The best "diet" that has worked for me is to eat less and move more. Even if it is taking a 30 minute walk every night..you are still moving.
      Just eat healthy. You don't have to go completely organic and stick to salads, chicken, fruits, and veggies. There are lots of healthy foods out there. 97% fat free hot dogs and a whole wheat hot dog bun isn't what most people would define as eating healthy, but it isn't fatty and fits into my diet so I eat it.

      Buy a gym membership.
      If you can't do that then simply start jogging in the morning, or go for a 45 minute morning walk or hike. What is great about doing that is you can do it with your daughter. Put her in a stroller and go walking or jogging with her. Or have someone watch her and go on a hike with a friend. You can also ride a bike, swim, or jump rope. There are so many ways of being active and it is actually really fun. Buy dumbbells and other exercise equipment and tapes if you can't go to a gym.

      Here is a diet plan:
      Eat 1,500 calories, 35 grams of fat (as little of saturated fat (the bad fat) as possible..and ZERO trans fat), about 200 grams of healthy carbs, and lots of protein. Your body burns about 1,200 calories a day just living. The number goes up when you start getting active. So if you start moving around more you will burn more than you consume.
      Don't go on a low carb diet. Your body NEEDS carbs..they are your bodies main source of fuel. Want to know why people lose so much weight so fast on a low carb diet? Because they are losing water weight not fat. When they eat a normal diet they will gain all that weight back. Eat complex carbs from whole wheat products, fruits, and vegetables.
      You can have sugar on a diet but try to restrict it as much as possible. Try to get only about 10 grams of granulated sugar in a day. Don't worry about natural sugar from dairy products, fruits, and vegetables.
      After a few weeks of losing weight (like when you hit a 15 pound weight loss mark) you could start having a splurge day once a week where you eat something you are craving. Most people do this because it is motivating, it doesn't affect your weight if it is just one day, and it helps keep you from binging.
      Make yummy healthy food. SparkRecipes has a lot of good healthy recipes..they also have the nutrition facts included with them.

      You can replace a lot of things with healthy options. Fat free milk and cheese instead of the full fat version. Egg beaters or egg whites (egg beaters taste better) instead of eggs. Fat free cream cheese and whole wheat bagels instead of full fat cream cheese and regular bagels. Look around at the grocery store and you will see that there are lots of healthy options.

      You don't need to do some ridiculous diet like low-carb, pickle diet, grape fruit diet, etc..
      Just move more and eat healthy. Having a healthy lifestyle can be fun.

      I hope I helped :) Good luck!

  26. QUESTION:
    Modifying the Master Cleanse diet?
    I've done my homework, and I'm seriously considering following this "Master Cleanse" program, however ... I've done similar fasts before and found that adding a salad of purely raw veggies really helps to both "speed up" the cleanse and keep the headaches at bay.

    Most doctors say that if you're eating raw, organic foods that you're still detoxifying. Does anyone know if adding my veggies to the master cleanse will screw it all up?

    • ANSWER:
      It will not screw it all up, but as you've probably learned, cleansing or crash diets help with weight-loss only for a very short-term. If you're looking for lasting results you need to adopt a diet that you can stay on for the rest of your life. Weight Watchers is a good place to start.

  27. QUESTION:
    Cleanse diet upsetting my bowels?
    OK Ive been on a sort of cleanse program for 4 days now. Eating mostly fruits and veggies some whole wheat bread every now and then and tart cherry juice. And I have the runs pretty bad. Is my body cleaning itself out? before I started this I ate a lot of crap kind of. Is this normal and how long will it last?
    I don't know how to comment on my own post so I will use this lol.

    Pink floy, I wouldn't say I'm really on a diet, Just trying to eat better. This can't be a bad thing considering I ate total crap and complete processed foods before can it? I think not.

    • ANSWER:
      No body needs cleansing EVER. Humans went without cleansing from caveman days to 1990's without that stoopid cleansing. You are harming your body. Get back to eating normal.

      - - - -After additional details:
      I'm not saying don't change your diet - healthy is best 5 fruits and veggies, limited sweets whole grains and limited meat.

      I'm saying it is never a smart thing to give yourself a cleansing (diarrhea) thru massive amounts of juice only, laxatives, or enemas. Increase the fiber naturally and "that end" will work just fine.

      Just start eating better.

      And that's PinkFloydFan413 - and yes there 412 more just like me.

    If I don't have a celiac disease, I don't need a gluten free diet?
    I want to start 21 days cleanse diet which requires no gluten during this program, but I don't think I have a celiac disease.
    is it safe that doing gluten free diet even though I don't have a celiac disease? or in order to do cleanse diet, not matter what, I should not eat glueten?
    I am not doing this diet to lose weight. I am skinny enough. I just want to be healthier.

    • ANSWER:
      It is safe to not eat gluten even if you don't have celiac disease. If you are going to do a cleanse diet then follow it. If you don't want to follow something in it then don't but then don't blame any results on that diet because you didn't follow it.

  30. QUESTION:
    Master Cleanse diet - an alternative method, would this work?
    Few weeks back I found about this “Master Cleanse diet”, but I couldn’t find maple syrup so I did some research and found dates syrup to be more better than maple in itself, I started the diet and it went fine for 3 days, I mixed dates syrup + lemon juice + come chili powder with water and drank that alone for 3 days and I didn’t feel hungry or tired. But on the 4th day I tried Salt water flush, it failed big time and I got really scared about the amount of salt that has been loaded in my body so the very next day I started eating as usual to get rid of the excess salt in my body. Soon I started getting back pain, and the pain traveled till my knee joints at times, I don’t know if the back pain was due to over worked kidney or sudden solid food movement in my bowel after no food for 3 days. Now I don’t have pain, for the past 1 and a half year I am working all day sitting in front of my computer no physical activity and this has caused a huge energy drop in my body and I feel tired, sleepy even after having food at times. My body needs some sudden diet or detoxification program to put things back in line. Now my question is,

    Do you think that too much of dates can cause some problem to our health?

    Then, is there any good alternative for Salt water flush (I am not going to do it again) or can we just leave the intestine alone so that it can cleanse itself if left alone?

    And please suggest me some detoxification + weight loss program that has worked out and is also quite safe.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. It took me some time to figure it out but you will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
      You may lose a pound of body fat but not necessarily. So it does work. but it does not change your SIZE. Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism).
      Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
      If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
      The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
      Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
      Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
      We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
      Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
      They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
      Spend your money in the produce department.
      Good luck.

  32. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a Diet that actually works?
    I really want to lose 50 pounds by next may. I have been looking up different diets all over the internet and it seems that everything is proven to work and is "the best diet out there!". I really don't want to put hundreds of dollars into these scams and I don't know how to pick out a diet that actually works!
    I personally don't mind cooking and measuring food but I really don't actually want that. I want something that is more of a program, like meal replacements or prepared food. I just feel that way I would be able to stay on track without being able to "cheat" as easily but like I said, it's something I would rather but really I just want to do something that actually works!!
    I have looked into diet programs at the GNC store(there are at least 10+ diets there), I have looked at Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Herbalife, Herbamagic. Also atkins diet, mater cleanse etc. I have looked into soo many different diets and they all claim to work, but honestly I don't know weather to believe it!
    Does anyone know of any diets that truly do work, has there been any diets that you have done that worked? Especially with using such a large amount of weight?
    By the way I am not a millionaire or even extremely well off. I live comfortably but don't have a lot of money to be spending on a diet every month.
    I do move, I have a one year old that's been walking for two months and gets into everything. I got rid of my car so I now walk EVERYWHERE. as far as the eating goes, I don't eat anymore the 1500 calories/day.

    • ANSWER:
      Well first of all you have to see it as NOT a diet but a lifestyle. Eating right and being healthy should be a proper lifestyle. I am a current weight watchers member and I love it. You have to make sure you go in there motivated for your goal and ready to track your food daily. I lost 20 lbs within two months. Now will you loose that much? Yes only if you put your all in it. If you do join make sure to go to the meetings because they help out so much. The people there really motivate you to do better and they even give you some great ideas on weight loss. Also try not to use the extra points because you'll loose weight much faster that way. Good luck and I hope all works out.

  33. QUESTION:
    When you take liver cleanse pills, do you also need to limit your diet to vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc?
    I currently purchased Enzymatic Therapy Complete Liver Cleanse. It is a 2 week program (you take 3 pills in the morning and 3 before bedtime). I know that I should not be consuming alcohol while taking the pills, but I am not sure if I should also be on a special diet. I am a vegetarian so I don't consume meat or dairy, but should I also stay away from soy products?

    • ANSWER:
      I know that the pamphlet that comes with that kit mentions a "clean" diet while you are taking the cleanse. Basically-lots & lots of water, low sugar, whole grains, lean protein(including greens & legumes if you don't eat meat), fruits & vegetables. The less processed the better. Generally speaking, unless you're eating edamame, soy is processed to make it into tofu or "meat" etc. So I would definitely limit if not completely eliminate the soy while you're doing the cleanse. Hope that helps!

  34. QUESTION:
    on the master cleanse diet will i gain it all back if i'm excersing?
    i'm starting a weight loss program which includes eating better and less, and working out in the gym-cardio and some lifting. i'm really overweight and i want to boost/jumpstart the weightloss. i read after this lemonade fast weight is gained back. is that still true if you're working out? please somebody who's done this while excercising answer.

    • ANSWER:
      When you do the lemonade diet, you lose mostly water weight. Yes, you will gain weight once you get off the "diet" due to the following reasons:
      1. You will be consuming more calories than you were consuming during your "diet"
      2. Your metabolism might have slowed down during your "diet" since your body was getting less calories
      3. When you get off this "diet" you will be craving food so much that you will probably eat more than you should

      Of course if you make better food choices and exercise (which it sounds like you will be doing) then you will probably not gain all the weight back, but you WILL gain some of it back.

    To lose weight in 5 months, follow this simple diet routine, proved to be more effective:

    General Motors Weight Loss Diet, a.k.a. The GM Diet* - An e-mail received from Shri M Siddique (who recd from Ravindra Jaju)
    Have you heard of the Physics Diet? As common sense goes, prevention is always better than cure!
    The following diet and health program was apparently developed for the employees and the dependants of General Motors Inc.
    The program was developed in conjunction with the grant from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It was first tried at the Johns Hopkins Research Centre and was approved for distribution by the Board of Directors of General Motors Corporation at a general meeting on August 15, 1995 .
    General Motors Corporation wholly endorsed this program and is making it available to all employees and families. This program will be available at all General Motors Food service facilities.
    It is the management’s intention to facilitate a welfare and fitness program for everyone.
    This program is designed for a target weight loss of 5-6 Kgs. per week. It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its systematic cleansing effects. The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the foods eaten burn more calories than they give to the body in caloric value. This plan can be used as often as you like to without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to feel lighter by atleast 10 pounds. You will have an abundance of energy and an improved disposition.
    During the first seven days you must drink 10 glasses of water each day.
    DAY ONE
    All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consists of all fruits you want. It is suggested you consume lots of watermelon and cantaloupe.
    DAY TWO
    All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the new and cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the account or type. Avoid oil and coconut while cooking vegetables. Have large boiled potato for breakfast.
    DAY THREE
    Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet and no potatoes today.
    DAY FOUR
    Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have one bowl of vegetables soup.
    DAY FIVE
    Today is a feast day. You will eat 1 (one) cup of rice. You also have to eat 6 (six) whole tomatoes and drink 12 (twelve) glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.
    DAY SIX
    Today is another all vegetables day. You must eat 1 cup of rice today and eat all the vegetables you want cooked and uncooked to your heart's content.
    DAY SEVEN
    Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup rice, fruit juice and all the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be five to eight kilograms lighter than 1 week ago. If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. Repeat the program as often as you like, however, it is suggested that you rest for three days before every repetition.
    You have your system under control now and it will thank you for all the purging and cleansing you just gave it. Even more than a diet program it is good to follow this diet once in a while to clean your digestive system and remove toxic substances that have a accumulated in the system.
    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
    The most important element of the program is the 10 (ten) tall glasses of water a day. You can also flavour the water will some lemon to make the drink easier. While on the program, take only black coffee and never more than one teaspoon of oil. Preferably do not use oil because the high calorific content. No fruit juices before day seven.
    Here is what happens to you body while you are on this program and how and why it works.
    Day 1: You are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh fruits. Fruits are nature's perfect food. They provide everything you can possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.
    Day 2: Starts with a fix complex carbohydrates in the form of a boiled potato. This is taken in the form of a boiled potato and taken in the morning to provide energy and balance. The rest of the day too consists of vegetables which are virtually calories free and provide essential nutrients and fibre.
    Day 3: Eliminates the potato because you get your carbohydrates from fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds. You will have cravings, which should start to diminish by day four.
    Day 4: Bananas and milk. You are in for a surprise. You probably will not be able to eat all the bananas allowed. But they are there for the potassium you have lost and the sodium you may have missed during the last three days. You will notice a definite loss of desire for sweets and you will be surp

    • ANSWER:
      Please do not follow this diet. It is a fad diet. Fad diets do not work.

      I'll tell you what I do not like about this diet. This diet does not provide sufficient fat or protein. Both are essential nutrients. This is basically a semi-starvation diet. You will lose lots of lean muscle mass as your body wastes away.

      It is very difficult for people to sustain wt. loss of more than 1 lb a week. A pound of fat= 3500 calories. If you burn 500 calories more per day than you eat than you will lose 1 lb a week. If you lose more than this you are losing water weight by dehydrating yourself, losing weight at an unsafe rate through semi-starvation, and you will not be able to maintain this weight loss.

      Don't believe me? Americans spend billions on weight loss programs and products each year. If these fad diets worked than 2/3 of adult Americans would not be overweight or obese.

      Losing weight takes patience, persistence, and a desire to learn how to eat healthfully. Most people find that exercise is needed to help them create a large enough calorie deficit to lose weight. There is no quick fix.

      If you want to lose weight I would highly recommend talking to a registered dietitian (RD). An RD is a nutrition expert that can help set up a customized diet plan for you to help you lose weight. Contact your local hospital for more information. Good luck.

  37. QUESTION:
    Please help me come up with a "regimented diet"?
    Hey guys. I know nutritional knowledge is important and I AM interested, but I am preparing for military service and I really want to get fit as soon as possible and change the health of my body to better serve. To this end I would love to have something like an "ultimate diet" where I wouldn't have to worry about how much I eat/drink, or exactly WHAT I eat or drink in any given day.

    First off, some (relevant?) info on me:

    I am about to turn 20. I weigh ~160 pounds. I am about 5"6.5'.
    I run three times a day, for between 20-40 minutes on average, my goal being at least 2.5 miles every time. I do some weights and calasthenics (I messed that spelling I know) but none consistently, which I'm going to work to change. I am very committed to this goal.

    Secondly, this is the only thing like this I've seen in my cursory reading tonight:

    Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice: Any amount, any quantity. No bananas and no potatoes today.
    Day Four:
    Bananas and Milk: today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have one bowl of vegetable soup.
    Day Five:
    Today is a feast day: You will eat 1 cup of rice. You also have to eat six whole tomatoes. Drink 13 glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.
    Day Six:
    Today is another all Vegetables day. You may eat 1 cup of rice today. Eat all vegetables you want cooked and uncooked to your hearts content.
    Day Seven:
    Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup of rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.

    Day One: you are preparing your system for upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh fruits. Fruits are nature's perfect food. They provide everything you can possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.
    Day two: Starts with mix of complex carbohydrates in the form of boiled potato. This is taken in the morning to provide energy and balance. The rest of day two consists of vegetables, which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fibers.
    Day three eliminates the potato because you get your carbohydrates from fruits. Your system is now prepared to start burning excess pounds.
    Day four bananas and milk sound the least desirable. Today is the day you can have coffee with milk. You are in for a surprise. You probably will not be able to eat all the bananas allowed. But they are there for the potassium you have lost an

  40. QUESTION:
    The Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet testimonials?
    If you've done it:
    What was you experience with this detox? And how long did you remain on it? What were your results?

    Please spare me the comments on how it's bad for you, your opinion on whether or not it's healthy, or other diet advice. I'm looking for people who have actually done the program. Thanks!
    I am not going on this diet to lose weight. I am interested in it as a method of detox.

    • ANSWER:
      YES I HAVE TRIED THIS.

      Do you know that you can single out a food or a drink, like go on a fries diet or a burger diet or an apple diet and lose weight.

      But these kind of diets are short term weight loss, when you get bored and come off them the chances are you will put on more weight.

      Don't go on a diet!

      Educate yourself about nutrition and take regular exercise.

      Have a look at my workout here;

      http://disciplineorregret.wordpress.com/my-workout-program/

      I have lost 5kg (11lbs), 3 inches from my waist and 3 inches from my hips in a little over 3 weeks.

      For weight loss to be permanent it needs to be gradual and healthy.

      I hope this helps.

      Take care,

  41. QUESTION:
    Would you undergo this body/spiritual clensing program?
    Let's say someone told you if you wanted to take part of this state of the art body/spiritual cleansing program for a whole month for FREE! You would be taken to a luxurious mansion with other patients. You would be given pure organic food (vegeterian diet), only water to drink, liquid vitamin supplementation, and herbs to cleanse your body. They would do numerous medical testing and treat any existing condition using natural remedies. Throughout the day, you would take part in activities such as exersise, yoga, steam baths, massages, ect. You wouldn't be able to eat anything fried, no TV, radio, internet, ect. Your insides will literally be cleansed inside out. So, would you do this for free?

    what cleanse should i do to just start my weight loss?
    I want to do a cleanse to jump start my weight loss and i wanted some suggestions. I really lack discipline and that is why i never stay on a weight loss program. I want a cleanse to help me to jump start a lifestyle change. I've heard about the master cleanse/lemonade diet. I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions.

    How to CLEANSE your BODY without a special program / or colon cleansing stuff...?
    Well, i'm 14, and i used to eat really bad - fastfood was literally all I ate. I got fat, then i got eating disorders. and now i'm fairly healthy though. But lately i've been eating a little bad, (like fast food a little more than usual, and chocolate [not a lot, but usually I restrict those, but since i'm getting better i'm okay with eating that] but it's making my skin break out really bad. *MY SKIN BREAKS OUT REALLY EASILY.

    Anyway, what can I do to cleanse out all the bad stuff and sort of start over.

    Besides buying colon cleansing stuff, lol, and other things. Also, i wouldn't be able to fast more than a day because my parents would notice and worry, so I don't think water diets would work for a long time. But if I just drank water for a day, would that help a little?

    What do you suggest?

    Who here eats only raw fruits and vegetables as their lifestyle diet?
    I want to know if it is good for you and if you body has been changed in a positive way. I have been doing it for a week (as part of a cleansing program, however) and I feel great. Today I ate a slice of pizza and I felt terrible. I think I will stay on the raw diet if it is worthwhile. Thank you!
    May I let you all know that I am not trying to lose weight, and I already went through a cleansing program. I just want to lead a healthy lifestyle. I am a vegetarian, but I am just wondering if this is a good way to go. I don't need any more cleaning programs. The acai berry is a scam, and so are the others.

      And not as a diet, I do it because I love it. And I feel wonderful. I'm the same as you, when I have a sandwhich or something I feel sluggish and I regret doing it.

  48. QUESTION:
    Natural body cleansing methods?
    I want to do a complete body cleansing But, I want to try to do it naturally. Can any one tell me what are the best foods to do this with. or a reasonable diet? & I don't want to sign up for some stupid program or buy pills.

    • ANSWER:
      I've seen some studies showing that you seriously don't need stupid programs and pills. If you want to clean out your system, get rid of alcohol and smoking if you do them, get a good amount of water and plenty of fruit and vegetables, and do light exercise every day. It doesn't take magic, honest!

      A lot of it is just positive thinking and really focusing on your body and your health. Do things that make you feel good - hot showers, saunas, massage, whatever. Eat good food with lots of natural vitamins. And keep moving - you'll start to feel much more energetic.

  49. QUESTION:
    Have you tried the One Week Diet System?
    I recently purchased the One Week Diet System from http://www.oneweekslimdown.com/

    Everybody seems to be raving about it. I have a friend in England who says there are commercials advertising it all over TV.

    Anyhow, that's not the reason I tried it out. There was an independent clinical study done on it that validates the claims they make. I am also convinced that just popping a pill everyday is not going to help you lose weight permanently and in a healthy fashion.

    And that is where the One Week Diet System seems to be different. It mainly consists of a liquid that you drink everyday, twice a day which basically resets your metabolism, cleanses the digestive tract and supports detoxification of the body. It also helps you replace one meal per day.

    However, unlike many other products which claim weight loss regardless of what else you do, part of the One Week Diet Program is doing at least 20 minutes of mild exercise a day as well as having a sensible diet... it recommends fruits, vegetables, lean meats, etc.

    I am currently doing the One Week Diet System and I find it really easy and comfortable to do :-)

    I'm starting to see quite a dramatic reduction of inches on my waist, thighs and upper arms. The fat seems to come off in all the right places.

    I've done many diets before, consisting of lots of exercise and healthy foods, but never have I seen the weight just come off so easily. It's a blast to track my progress everyday :-)

    I'd like to know if any of you have tried the One Week Diet and how it is working for you.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes I have tried it and loved it. I was really surprised at how easy it was to just drink this liquid everyday and right away I started slimming down. My cravings all but vanished and it just felt really right in some way in my body. Probably it is the easiest thing I have ever done to lose some weight.

  50. QUESTION:
    What was your experience like on the Wild Rose D-Tox program?
    I am now on day 8 of 12, and I feel pretty good. A friend who is a heath-care professional recommended this cleanse program to me. She said most people feel pretty crappy for the first couple of days, and a few other people I know who have all done it said it was "hard" on their bodies. She also said, when she did it a few months ago, that one day she saw a yucky black tar in her stool.

    Since I've started, from day one, I haven't really felt much different. I normally have a very high-fiber diet as I am vegetarian and only eat whole grains. Generally I've felt more energetic and happier (but to be truthful, I'm not sure if that has to do with the lack of alcohol in my system), I am thinking clearly, and my perma-althete's foot has almost disappeared completely.

    How did you feel?
    When you finished the cleanse what was your first normal "meal"? And did it go down smoothly?

    • ANSWER:
      You're waisting your time, Moopoo. The alt med concept of 'detox' is a scam. 'Detox' has no real meaning outside of the clinical treatment of addiction and poisoning.

      Most toxins you ingest are efficiently and effectively removed by your kidneys and liver; no food or supplement including herbs will improve their function.

      There is no evidence that these 'toxins' even accumulate in the body. If you are concerned about heavy metals or pesticides, no alt med 'detox' approach will have any effect on them. You will need hospitalization if you have heavy metal or pesticide poisoning.

      In my experience, 'detox' proponents cannot agree on a definition of 'detox', they cannot not define what 'toxins' are being removed, and they cannot describe how they are being removed. They cannot provide one shred of evidence to support their claims. I have asked these questions here many times.

      As wiki says: "Body cleansing and detoxification have been referred to as an elaborate hoax used by con artists to cure nonexistent illnesses."
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_cleansing

      You are probably doing more harm than good, so you have risk without benefit.

Cleansing Diet Recipes

Written By: admin - May• 04•12

It is one of those things that go along way towards improving overall health and fitness, detoxing the body. This process should be followed two times a year, most people begin their detoxification at the start of spring and the end of fall each year.

When the detoxing of the body is done is of less importance than making sure it is done in the correct manner. Getting the proper exercise, eating a balanced diet, and managing your current stress levels are all important aspects of maintaining good overall health, and will enhance your detoxing experience.

Maintaining overall good health and optimal fitness levels, a diet, exercise program, and stress reduction are all needed to produce the desired results, and a vital part to all detoxification plans.

Health Advantages From Detoxing Of The Body

Due to the abundance of environmental pollutants, toxins found in the air and water, reduction in the ozone layer, and modern processing of foods we are all at risk of becoming ill both with mental and physical consequences, detoxing is of the highest priority for those looking for a healthy lifestyle.

The diet needed for properly detoxing is easy to follow, and can be repeated as many times as desired to maintain the highest degree of health advantages.

Foods For Detoxing

While on the detoxification diet the foods listed below are utilized in any combination that is preferred as long as the mixture supports a healthy and balanced diet. Utilize this list of detoxification foods to put together the tastiest menu you can come up with.
Fruit-eating plenty of fresh fruit during detoxing is very important, just about any kind of fruit can be included from apples, oranges, bananas, to the more exotic fruits. 100% real fruit juices are fine as well, provided that they contain no artificial preservatives or added sugar.

Vegetables-the same rule will apply with vegetables as with fruits, eat plenty while detoxing. Popular vegetables utilized for detoxing are fresh onions, carrots, turnips, cabbage, bean sprouts, peppers, mushrooms, corn, leeks, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.

Beans and lentils-Dried beans and beans canned in water are perfect for detoxing the body, but beans packaged in oil should be avoided. Kidney beans, lima beans, pinto beans, black eyed peas and lentils are popular beans for detoxing the body.

Tofu and quorn-These popular meat substitutes are the perfect choice for detoxing.

Oats-sprinkle them over fresh fruit, or put them in your porridge. Oats can also be tastefully enhanced with fresh fruits or honey.

Fresh fish-Some of the healthiest varieties of fish include cod, salmon, mackerel, monkfish and trout, fish can play a major role in the diet during detoxification.

Live yogurt-The valuable nutrients and bacteria contained in live yogurt help to settle the digestive tract while detoxing the body.

What Foods To Avoid While Detoxing

Just as there are foods that should be included in the detox diet, The following list of foods must be left alone at all costs:

Red meat, chicken, turkey and other poultry

Processed meat products, such as sausages, hotdogs, processed luncheon meats, and pate

Milk, cream, cheese and other dairy products
Eggs, butter and margarine

High salt snacks like potato chips or other snack chips

Salted nuts of any kin

Chocolate, candy and other sweets

Refined sugar

Jams and jellies

Caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee and soft drinks

Alcohol of any kind

Salt

Premixed retail salad dressings

Detoxing twice each year will result in improved overall health, and reduce the problems associated with the dangers of the pollution, toxins, and stress that is faced each day.

The plan is easy to understand and easy to follow, takes little time and can be repeated when needed.

      Apple cider vinegar ( 1 teaspoon) mixed with 6 ounces water, 2-3 times a day. Also, drink lots of water.

      Fluoresence at Whole Foods Market

      Eat fiber. Whether from high fiber creal, flax, or from psyllium husks. Fiber makes you feel more full and also cleanses your system.

      All of these are natural and at grocery stores.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the Master Cleanse diet recipe?
    How does it work and for how many days?

    • ANSWER:
      12 oz of filtered water (warm)
      2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
      2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup
      1/10 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder

      Every night before bed, drink a glass of laxative tea & do a saltwater flush every morning (32 oz water mixed w/2 teaspoons water.

      I have done this & recommend it more to cleanse your system than for permanent weight loss. I felt great while doing it & lost 14lbs. Unfortunately, when I went off, I gained 1/2 back. This "diet" horribly slows your metabolism, and even though I exercised every day while on it, I still could tell a difference. I started to feel sluggish towards the end. Again - I recommend it as a cleanse, not a diet.

  3. QUESTION:
    Whats the recipes and total plan for the Master Cleanse Diet?
    I wanna know all the things to drink how much when and stuff like that.
    I don't want to hear about how its not going work i just want know what to do to make it work ok thanks

    • ANSWER:
      you drink 2 litres of the syrup drink a day (6 large cups)
      You need
      the juice of three lemons
      140ml of palmtree surup (you can use maple if you don't have that)
      1 pinch of cyann peper(or ground ginger)
      add water to make it up to two litres

      Have a cup of senna tea every eveniung and do a salt flush every morning.
      for a salt flush you need
      1L warm/hot water
      1 level tea spoon of sea salt

      drink as much of the 1L as possible and STAY CLOSE TO THE LOO for at least an hour afterwards.
      Do not do the salt flush on the first day as your digestive system has not cleard properly and I'll make you feel sick.

      Take it easy and make sure you don't have to do any physical work during the diet.

  8. QUESTION:
    can somebody give me a recipe for a cleansing diet that is effective,fast,and healthy-thanks!?

    • ANSWER:
      cleansing diets are not generally "healthy" because they deprive your body of vital nutrients that it needs to survive. most will be effective and fast at helping you lose water weight, but that's all. once you start eating again, you will regain whatever you lost and usually more, because you deprived your body of vital foods and nutrients, just consume more water and fruits and veggies, they will "flush" your body out naturally (literally) and provide you with great vit's and min's that you need.

    What is the Recipe for the Master Cleanse diet by the gallon?
    I am thinking about doing the Master Cleanse diet for 10 days to detox and drop some junk food weight that I know I have gained... I am going to be starting a diet of exercizing and eating right and I want to start fresh. Does anyone know what the recipe is to make this diet by the gallon so I can keep it in the fridge and not make it by the glass? N E help would be appreciated. THANX!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't recommend the master cleanse diet. Have you tried it before? I remember how last winter I wanted to do it for a week just for starters. The first day was so painful. I got such a bad headache and my breath got icky because I wasn't eating anything (did you know eating can actually help your breath to an extent?). I've read of other people complaining about the headaches and what not from doing that cleanse. I'd scratch it from your list of things to try because it's just not really worth it. If you want to clean out your system, try drinking senna teas like once (maybe even twice) every few weeks....much more effective.

BUT I DONT WANT TO STARVE MYSELF. i'm not overweight at all and i do exercise so i'm just wanting to do this for the overall health.

    have you done this?
    is there a link to recipes/or a plan for this diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet

      Background
      The Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet is the creation of Roni DeLuz who is the founder and director of the Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat.

      DeLuz states that the program was originally designed with the purpose of cleansing and nourishing the body. Claims made for the health benefits of the diet are that it will cleanse the digestive system, boost immunity, reduce cellulite and enhance mental clarity. It also helps to change the way people think about food and to foster a new healthy lifestyle which can help with maintaining weight loss if these good habits are kept up.

      The substantial weight loss that occurs on the program DeLuz says is a bonus. However this is certainly the major attraction of the program to many dieters with promised results of 21 pounds in 21 days holding great appeal for those who are looking for fast results.

      Diet Basics
      The diet is centered on liquids such as fresh vegetable juices, live green drinks, berry drinks, herb tea and puréed vegetable soups.

      Permitted vegetables for soups include garlic, beans, carrots, cucumbers, celery, collard greens, kale, beets, sweet potatoes, summer squashes, most green vegetables, tomatoes, and purple cabbage.

      In addition there are several required nutritional supplements such as vitamins, digestive enzymes and aloe vera.

      These are the only foods to be consumed for the entire 21 day program. The plan provides a daily intake of approximately 1000 calories. Caffeine and alcohol must be strictly avoided.

      After 21 days dieters are encouraged to go off the detox diet carefully beginning with adding protein powder, soy milk, yogurt and salmon followed by gradually adding other nutritious foods.

      Sample Diet Plan
      Breakfast

      Antioxidant berry drink, herbal cleansing formula, eight ounces of herb tea and eight ounces of water

      Mid morning

      Eight ounces of water and eight ounces of hot or iced herb tea

      Lunch

      One cup of fresh vegetable juice or a green drink, eight ounces of water, herbal cleansing formula and an enzyme capsule

      Early afternoon

      Eight ounces of water and eight ounces of hot or iced herb tea

      Late afternoon

      Antioxidant or berry drink

      Dinner

      Cleansing soup, one cup of broth, one cup of herb tea, herbal cleansing formula, eight ounces of water and an enzyme capsule

      Early evening

      Eight ounces of water or herb tea

      Bedtime

      Aloe vera supplement

      Exercise Recommendations
      Dieters are advised to walk one mile a day in a quiet relaxed setting or to bounce on a mini trampoline for 20 minutes to help to stimulate the lymphatic system.

      Additional Recommendations
      Colonics, coffee enemas, saunas and lymphatic massage are recommended to help with eliminating toxins.

      Costs and Expenses
      The book costs .95 US however it is a requirement of the program to purchase nutritional supplements from the website which costs 9 plus .95 shipping and handling for the 21 day program.

      A juicer is also essential for the program and these can range in cost from -0.

      Pros
      May be beneficial for people at beginning of a lifestyle change as the dramatic change in routine can help to break unhealthy habits and to increase awareness about food quality in the diet.
      Rapid weight loss can be good psychological incentive for many dieters to continue with a weight loss program.
      High fruit and vegetable intake with an average of 22 serves daily.
      Cons
      Only 20 grams of protein per day which is well below recommended daily intakes. Also lacking in essential fats and fiber.
      Withdrawal from coffee, sugar and alcohol can cause symptoms such as headaches which may make it may be difficult to continue with working and other normal daily routines.
      Socially disruptive as it is impossible to eat out for the entire 21 days unless bringing your own beverages.
      Requirement to purchase nutritional supplements as well as a juicer makes this a very expensive program compared to many other diets.
      Conclusions
      Although dieters are almost guaranteed to lose large amounts of weight on this program it is likely that the majority of this will be muscle rather than fat loss. This in effect sets dieters up to regain weight when a normal diet is resumed due to a reduction in the metabolism.

      Current nutritional models in regard to detoxification diets are that such extreme approaches are unnecessary and may do more harm than good in many cases. If you want to cleanse the body and lose weight the best approach is considered to be a highly nutritious balanced diet.

    I am simple in search of the recipe for day by day. Please if you have any recipes regarding this or websites that have the recipes. I do not want to use a pill I am not trying to loose weight just clear the toxins from my body.

I have been getting super sick the past say 7-8 months I eat generally pretty healthy but still have endured bronchitis, the flu and another strain of the flu one right after another. My immune system cannot recover. I take a multi-vitamin with extra b-12 because I am anemic talked briefly with a nutritionist and said maybe my body needs to do a cleanse to clear the toxins she said I could make an appointment with where she could give me a diet but I am a college student and do not have 400 dollars to spare for a recipe.

    • ANSWER:
      The best cleanse out there is the master cleanse. It is 10 days long and all you drink for the ten days is lemon juice cayenne pepper and maple syrup. There are some other details so you should look it up and follow the directions perfectly. I know people that have done this cleanse and have said it changed their lives.
      @ Colanth-If you ever eat processed foods, meat thats been treated with hormones and a wide range of other weird things humans have done to food lately, then you would absolutely benefit from a cleanse.

  17. QUESTION:
    master cleanse diet recipe?
    On the master cleanse diet how much weight can you lose? Do you eat anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      Well I have done the Master Cleanse as a kick start to my diet. I do it for 2 weeks straight and I lose about 15-25 pounds. After getting off the diet I change my old eating habits and I follow a new diet plan. I work out at the gym about 3-4 times a week. So the Master Cleanse does work for me, I see the difference in my weight and my skin. My skin looks more refreshed when I'm using the cleanse.

      Here is the receipe.

      For a minimum of 10 days, drink:
      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice (approx. ½ lemon),
      2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup, not maple-flavored sugar syrup or syrup from companies that use formaldehyde to harvest their syrup
      1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper (hot red pepper), and
      1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water, NOT fluoridated water.
      Drink six to twelve glasses of this lemonade mixture daily. No food is eaten nor any vitamin supplements taken during the cleanse. If you get hungry, have another glass of lemonade. After all, this is also called the "Lemonade Diet."
      If you are overweight, you may use less maple syrup. If you are underweight, use more maple syrup if you wish.
      If you are worried about losing weight, Burroughs says, "The only things you can possibly lose are mucus, waste, and disease. Healthy tissue will not be eliminated."
      Do not vary the amount of lemon juice per glass and be sure to drink at least six glasses of lemonade a day. You can drink more water, if you want.
      As a reducing diet it is superior in every way to any other system because it dissolves and eliminates all types of fatty tissue. Fat melts away at the rate of about two pounds a day for most persons-and without any harmful side effects.
      All mucus diseases such as colds, flu, asthma, hay fever, sinus and bronchial troubles are rapidly dissolved and eliminated from the body, leaving the user free from the varied allergies which cause difficult breathing and clogging of the sinus cavities. Allergies exist as a result of an accumulation of these toxins and they vanish as we cleanse our body. People who are over-weight often experience these difficulties, and the more they continue to eat the toxic fat-producing foods which cause their obesity, the more their other ailments multiply.
      Mucus disorders are brought about by the eating or drinking of mucus-forming foods. In other words, if you have these diseases, you at them! As we stop feeding our family mucus-forming foods, we can eliminate their mucus and allergy diseases for the rest of their lives.
      The types of disease which are a result of calcium deposits in the joints, muscles, cells, and glands are readily dissolved and removed from the body. Cholesterol deposits in the arteries and veins also respond to the magic cleansing power of the lemonade diet. All skin disorders also disappear as the rest of the body is cleansed. Boils, abscesses, carbuncles, and pimples all come under this category. These conditions are again Nature's effort to eliminate poisons quickly from the body.
      All types of infections are the result of these vast accumulations of poisons being dissolved and burned or oxidized to produce further cleansing of the body. Therefore, rapid elimination of the toxins relieves the need for infectious fevers of all kinds. Infections are not "caught," they are created by Nature to assist in burning our surplus wastes.
      Yes, the lemonade diet is a reducing diet, but much more. Just as many other disorders also cleared up at the same time when it was used to heal ulcers, when it is used as a reducing diet other ailments are also corrected in the process.
      People build strong, healthy bodies from the correct foods or they build diseased bodies from incorrect foods. When disease does become necessary, the lemonade diet will prove its superior cleansing and building ability.

    "rae's momma'' i appreciate it but i've read about it and i understand the pains to come along with it. i'm still gonna try it.

    • ANSWER:
      I know it's not what you want to hear, but I REALLY would not do it. I did and after one day on it I started getting AWFUL pains in my stomach, worse than labor pains, and I went to the doctor and he said that all the ingredients together are meant to eat away at the buildup in your intestines, and if you're young (under 35) you don't have enough crap build up so it eats away at your intestine lining. I felt like CRAP.

  20. QUESTION:
    What is a good and healthy liquid diet?
    I want to do a deep cleansing diet without any solid food at least for several days. I love greens so any recipes with greens would be great!! something I can do for several days even up to 2 weeks, without fainting or feeling weak. What do you guys recommend???

    • ANSWER:
      There is no healthy liquid diet. All this 'cleansing diet' stuff is rubbish. Why do you think people feel faint and weak? Because their bodies do not operate properly on those stupid diets. If you want to be healthy, the only way to go is a lifestyle change. Eat natural, avoid fats, sugars and excess carbs, reduce potion sizes and drink plenty of water. Add some exercise to that and you'll be far healthier than any fad diet - not just in terms of weight, but body systems, skin tone, energy levels, etc.

  21. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have the recipe for the Master Cleanse Diet?
    Does it work and how long do I have to do it? What are some benefits to it and is it healthy?

    • ANSWER:
      2 tbsp fresh squeeze lemon juice, 2 tbsp organic pure maple syrup Grade B, 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper with 8 oz spring water (not purified, distilled or artesian). 6-12 servings a day. The evening before you start, drink a cup of Senna laxitive tea (Smooth Move, found in most grocery food store's health food section). In the morning "chug" a saline internal bath, which is 2 tsp celtic non-iodized sea salt in 4 cups (quart) spring water. This is BY FAR the hardest part! NO FOOD, NO GUM, NO MINTS! You must do it a minimum of 10 days and it can be done for 40+ days.

      Today is my first day off the cleanse, which means I have to drink organic fresh squeezed orange juice all day today and for breakfast tomorrow. Tomorrow I will be able to make an all organic vegetable soup to eat for lunch and dinner. Day three is the juice in the morning, soup for lunch and salad for dinner. Day four, regular eating.

      I lost 18 lbs in 14 days. I am takinga a week off because I have to go to a wedding, but then I will try it for 20 days. I have many degrees in the area of exercise science and nutrition. The principals are sound. But I must advise, focus on "cleansing" and not "weight loss." I f you're always weighing yourself, you may get discouraged!

      Remember to stik with it... if you get hungry, just have more lemonade. Anyone can endure 10 days of something. Keep in mind, for the first three days you WILL have cravings... by day seven you WILL get sick of the lemonade. But, the weightloss is worth it. You will not be tired or feel sluggish. I can honestly say, I never felt hungry on it. Cravings? YES, hunger? NO!

      It is worthwhile and is the ultimate test of will. Do you have the willpower?

  22. QUESTION:
    What is grade B maple syrup, and can it be replaced with another syrup in the master cleanse diet?
    I am going to do the master cleanse, and all the recipes call for "grade B maple syrup". I've never seen this in the shop, here in Sweden where I live? Is there another term for this? IS it just maple syrup with no sugar?

    And also, could I possibly replace it with Agave syrup on the master cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Grade B maple syrup is less refined so it retains much more minerals and vitamins.

      I would not replace it and still expect to get the minerals and nutrients it is designed to provide.

  23. QUESTION:
    (Trainers Health Nuts and Dieticians) I need help and suggestions for a cleansing diet.?
    Hey everyone. I am in need of some dietician type help without any funds or insurance so an actual doctor is out. I am very over weight. I’m 25 years old, I weigh 280 I'm 5'7" and carry my weight from head to toe which is a blessing really as it helps me look proportional . . . its just a big proportion. My weight doesn't bother me much at all as far as looks go and I can still do whatever I want activity wise. I'm not the typical "fat slob" people usually have in mind. I dress well and look nice, and go about my business. I'm very comfortable in my skin, but I'm afraid my health is falling fast. My heart is okay besides a rapid heart beat which I've had since my thinner years (little electrical problem so I'm told) but the structure is good and my cholesterol and EKG readings when on my beta blocker are phenomenal. I do have severe anxiety and depression which I’ve had my whole life but I think my weight exacerbates the issue, but my biggest problem is: my gut is not happy. My stomach is pretty much constantly uncomfortable. I have heart burn a lot and excessive gas bubbles just hanging out and paining me terribly. I had my first gallbladder attack about two months ago after a rather ridiculous amount of greasy food and I thought I might just die, but as it is with a lot of overeaters that only stopped me temporarily.
    So I'm looking for some help. I'm looking to start off "fresh" or "clean" and by that I don't mean I want to drink or eat anything that keeps me in the bathroom for an entire weekend. That kind of cleansing is a bit too sudden for my liking I think. I'm just looking for a beginning diet that's packed full of any and everything I'm going to want to really get some vitamins, minerals, calcium in me. I also am in need of foods that will bulk up and move out all the awful crap I've put into my body lately. I'm kind of looking for any foods or any meal regimen any of you might have that can give me a little boost. Any foods you eat that really invigorate you or have really great qualities I should know about. I’m a crap cook but simple recipes are cool too. I'd like to just flood my body with any and everything that's good for a couple of weeks to get me out of this awful "blah" feeling, and then incorporate your suggestions into a food plan that may be a little less extreme but still very healthy, whilst being attainable for me.
    Any “beware of” foods you know of, besides fatty foods, fast foods, sugar I know that much, that are no good or just no good for people with sensitive stomachs let me know those too. I hope I can get a good chunk of answers. I really need some help.
    I'm not even looking to lose weight. I want to feel better. I don't want a diet and esp not a bs one that is unfeesable and unhealthy.
    The Liver and our Kidneys are our biggest detoxifiers and if we treat them badly they become unhealthy so eating foods that would detoxify the Liver and Kidneys would be fantastic for the body. Since no one wanted to give me any hints I just dug around and found a bunch of foods that are great for Liver and kidney function and I've been eating a lot of the fruits and vegitables given as examples. My stomach feels better for the lack of fats and sugars and my body feels better for all the great stuff I've put in it. I didn't get any help here but if anyone else stumbles upon my question just search around for foods that are especially good for your liver and kidneys since those are your main cleansers for your body.

    • ANSWER:
      As the body and colon are self cleansing there is no such thing as a 'cleansing diet'.
      The Mediterranean diet is a good one...
      http://www.patient.co.uk/health/How-to-Follow-the-Mediterranean-Diet.htm
      ... just eliminate any food that you know upsets you.

      We already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine

  25. QUESTION:
    does anyone have the master cleanse lemonade diet recipe?

    • ANSWER:
      Lemonade Diet (The Master Cleanser)

      The lemonade diet is a detoxification program written by the Stanley Burroughs. The diet - called the "The Master Cleanser" was written in the 1940s and continues to be popular to this day.

      This dietary regime is strictly a cleansing diet. Weight loss will occur, but it is not to be equated with fat loss. Much of the weight that is lost will be from fluid and water retention. Without a doubt, at least 1/2 the weight will come back on after completing the diet. Many people incorrectly use this for fast weight loss. This is not what the diet is intended for.

      Detox diets such as the lemonade diet are not for the faint-hearted. They are difficult to follow. People experience varying degrees of success as their body begins to flush itself of toxins - but the first few days are hardest. Some only use the lemonade diet for 4-5 days, while others take it out to 2 weeks.

      People report an enormous number of health benefits - relief of arthritic symptoms, infections, pain, gout, and many more.

      A typical herbal detox will do the following:
      - Dissolves and eliminates toxins that have formed in any part of the body
      - Cleanse kidneys and digestive system
      - Purifies the glands and cells
      - Eliminate waste and hardened material in joints and muscles
      - Relieves pressure and irritation in nerves, arteries and blood vessels

      Lemonade Diet Sample
      - 60 oz spring water per day (spread over 6 10 oz glasses)
      - 12 tablespoons Ogranic Grade B Maple Syrup(or 2 tbsp. per glass)
      - 12 tablespoons freshly squeezed organic lemon juice (or 2 tbsp. per glass)
      - a little over half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or 1/10 tsp. per glass) or to taste

      The only other foods consumed are a laxative tea twice a day and a saline (sea salt) wash. The laxative may be required due to the lack of fiber in the diet that may lead to constipation.

      Breaking the Fast
      This must be done gently, by easing your way back into solid food. Vegetable soup is a good starter, and fruits and vegetables shouldn't be started until the second day out of the juice fast.

  26. QUESTION:
    Has any one done the Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet?
    If so how do you preparer it and what else can you eat while your in these diet???

    The lemonade diet recipe detail is here:
    • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon.
    • 2 tablespoons of grade B Maple Syrup.
    • Add cayenne pepper according to your preference
    • A glass of pure water.

    • ANSWER:
      I did the master cleanse diet for 7 days. First I suggest you get the book "The Master Cleanse" by Stanley Burroughs. It's very cheap on Amazon or half.com,especially if you buy it used.

      The book contains all the reasons for being on this diet, how to make the drink, and (very important) how to break the fast when you go back to solid food.

      You will have to listen to your body and decide how closely to follow Burrough's suggestions. He recommends eating NO food at all during this fast. Instead drink 6 to 12 glasses of the lemonade each day, and most likely you will not feel hunger at all.

      Combine 2 tbsp of fresh lemon (I was a fanatic & added lemon pulp from the lemon) with the other ingredeints you mentioned. The water should be warm (Burroughs calls it medium hot). Cayenne can be up to 1/10 of a tspn. I used even less.

      For the 7 days I was on the cleanse, I felt fine and didn't get hungry. If you don't want to fast competely, my suggestion is to stick to raw veggies & fruit. Keep bacon cheeseburgers to a minimum =)

      There are critics of the Master Cleanse diet. The cleanse was great for me, but you can see the critics in the 2nd link below.

      One Final Note: Beware of people who answer your question and suggest you buy products from their own website. For example, see the first person who answered your question.

    Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet Recipe?
    please someone list the recipe how many times do i drink it a day??
    and i dont get it when and how many times do i drink the sea salt water???

    • ANSWER:
      Don't do Master Cleanse. It doesn't cleanse you, it doesn't help you burn fat, and it could be dangerous. Eat healthy, exercise, and get plenty of sleep, and your body cleanses itself with no problem.

  30. QUESTION:
    What exactly is the recipe for th e master cleanse diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Main Ingredients for the Master Cleanse Recipe
      • Pure Filtered Water
      • Grade B Organic Maple Syrup, Formaldehyde free
      • Organic Cayenne Pepper
      • Organic Lemons
      • Sea salt - Unrefined, (Not iodized) or Epsom Salt

      Optional Ingredients:
      • Laxative tea
      • Natural Herbal Tea (decaffeinated)

      The Master Cleanse Recipe
      The Master Cleanse works just how it sounds; you consume primarily lemonade for the entire time you’re on the diet. So the recipes for the diet itself are fairly simple. You should drink a minimum of 60 oz of lemonade a day, but can drink more if you like. You can also drink as much water as you want. I suggest you consume your body weight in ounces of water.

      Below are two different recipes. The first is for a single serving of the master cleanse lemonade. The second will make 6 servings

      #1 (single serving):

      2 Tablespoons of organic lemon Juice (about 1/2 a Lemon)
      2 Tablespoons of Organic grade B maple syrup (not the commercial maple flavored syrup you use on pancakes)
      1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder
      Ten ounces of filtered water
      #2 (60 oz. daily serving):

      60 ounces of filtered water
      12 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup
      12 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
      1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
      There are a couple important things to remember when preparing the lemonade.

      For one, the lemon juice used must be fresh squeezed. This cannot be emphasized enough. It is necessary to use fresh produce. Canned juice won’t work and will erase most of the benefits of using the master cleanser diet.

      Also, the maple syrup must be grade B maple syrup, not the sugar filled syrup that is used at the breakfast table.

      The cayenne pepper might seem unnecessary, but it is actually very important. Not only does it help to add a bit of a kick, but the pepper helps to break up mucus and increases healthy blood flow. It also is a good source of B and C vitamins, commonly referred to as “Super Vitamins” due to their many benefits for the body.

      Mixing teas with the recipe is one way to help modify things, just make sure it’s decaffeinated tea because caffeine can restrict blood vessels and we want to keep your body passages as open as possible.

      Adding a Natural Laxative To Help Flush Out Your System
      Taking a laxative will speed up the detoxing process, and help your body eliminate waste.

      I prefer ingestible laxatives like, sea salts, and herbal tea. These are ideal methods for cleaning the colonic tract without the harmful effects of colonics and enemas.

      Drinking 1 teaspoon of unrefined non-iodized sea salt mixed with 25-35 ounces of water will flush out your system.

      It’s best to use either of these laxatives (or both of them) 2 times a day. I've found it best to take them in the morning and before I go to bed.

      Also, I advise you give yourself at least an hour and a half before you go out when you do this. These laxatives will work fast, and you will discover why you should probably be at home near a bathroom when you use them.

  34. QUESTION:
    What is the best home detox/cleanse diet?
    I don't want one that you have to buy... what is one I can make at home? Smoothie recipes, etc.

    • ANSWER:
      The kidneys and liver do all the detoxification in the body. The best way to clean these organs is to limit unhealthy food choices.

      The best way to "detox or cleanse" is to eat healthy. Cut fast food from your diet and limit simple carbs and drink generous amounts of fluids.

      Add fiber to your diet, this will help keep the colon running smoothly. Increase the consumption of alkaline foods such as lemon (lemon water), watermelon and leafy green vegetables.

      Usually when your body is feeling sluggish, it is because of what is missing from the diet. This is corrected by adding excellent food choices and cutting out poor ones.

  35. QUESTION:
    Need recipes for a very strict diet - no soy, gluten/wheat, dairy, and nothing raw. Salsa? Anything yummy?
    ***READ ALL OF IT***
    Hey... my mom just found out she's gluten and lactose intolerant, and is now on a two week diet to cleanse her system. Next Tuesday, she can eat raw fruits and veggies, but until then, everything MUST be cooked.

    She can eat tortilla chips, but not salsa, because she's not allowed to have tomatoes at all... not even cooked ones. Does anyone have a recipe for a good no-tomato-salsa... in which everything has been cooked...?

    Any other tasty recipes you can give me would be very helpful, she's basically just been having rice noodles, meat, cooked veggies and potatoes.

    Anything with a new or different flavor outside of salt, pepper and butter (she IS allowed butter) would be a blessing... I feel so bad for her, she's miserable.
    ...Anybody? No ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      To make a salsa without tomatoes and cook it too, I would take onion, green, red, yellow and orange bell peppers and cut them all up removing the seeds from the peppers and then saute them using a nonstick frying pan with a little PAM. Maybe add a little zucchini or squash and that should take care of a cooked salsa. Maybe add some oregano or rosemary to it.

    I read about this in a magazine, but no detail on what quantities of each ingredient. I think it's part of the fat flush diet, but I don't want to purchase the entire book.

    • ANSWER:
      I haven't heard of the cranberry, lemon cleanser but I know of a good apple, ginger, lemon version. It tastes great and I think I have seen something like it at Whole Foods.

      Ingredients:
      5 apples
      1/2 lemon with the skins (only if organic)
      1 thick slice of raw ginger

      Directions:
      Seed and core the apples. Slice apples into narrow slices and place in juicer. Add ginger and lemon and process.

      The website below also has another good cranapple smoothie, but still it isn't exactly what you are looking for.

    What is a good recipe for a body cleansing?
    I want to go on a few day/week long cleansing, WITHOUT the use of drugs, diet pills, OTC products. What is a nutritional. safe, cleansing concoction?

    • ANSWER:
      SOUP:

      * 1 or 2 cans of stewed tomatoes
      * 3 large bunches green onions
      * 1 large can of beef or chicken broth (no fat)
      * 1 pkg. Lipton Soup mix (chicken noodle) use entire package (noodles ok)
      * 1 bunch of celery
      * 2 cans or fresh green beans
      * 2 lbs. Carrots
      * 2 Green Bell Peppers

      Cut veggies in small to medium pieces and cover with water. Boil fast for 10 minutes and add Lipton Soup mix, reduce heat. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 Tablespoon chili powder or curry. You can also add hot sauce or Worcestershire sauce to suit your taste. Experiment. Simmer and continue to cook until veggies are just tender. Chop fresh parsley or Cilantro and add after you turn off heat if desired.

      This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry during the week. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. You may want to fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day.

      DRINKS:

      * Unsweetened juices
      * Tea (also herbal)
      * Coffee
      * Cranberry juice
      * Skim milk
      * Water, water, water

      DAY ONE
      Any fruit (except bananas). Cantaloupes and watermelon are lower in calories than most other fruits. Eat only soup and fruit today.

      DAY TWO
      All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh raw, cooked or canned veggies. Try to eat green leafy veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas or corn. Eat veggies along with the soup. At dinnertime tonight reward yourself with a big baked potato and butter. Don't eat any fruits through today.

      DAY THREE
      Eat all the soup, fruit and veggies you want. Do not have a baked potato. If you have eaten as above for three days and not cheated, you should find that you have lost 5-7 pounds.

      DAY FOUR
      Bananas and skim milk: Eat at least 3 bananas and drink as much milk as you can today, along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates, as is the milk but on this particular day, your body will need the potassium and carbs. Proteins and calcium to lessen the cravings for sweets.

      DAY FIVE
      Beef and tomatoes: you may have 10 to 20 ounces of beef and a can of tomatoes, or as many as 6 tomatoes on this day. Eat the soup at least once today.

      DAY SIX
      Beef and veggies, eat to your heart's content of the beef and veggies today. You can even have 2-3 steaks if you like with green leafy veggies but no baked potato. Be sure to eat the soup at least once today.

      DAY SEVEN
      Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and veggies, again, be sure to stuff yourself and eat the soup. You can add cooked veggies to your rice if you wish.

      By the end of the 7th day, if you have not cheated on this diet, you should have lost 6-10 pounds. You should stay off the diet for two days before resuming the diet again.

      This diet is fast. The secret lies within the principle that you will burn more calories than you take in. It will flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being. This diet does not lend itself to drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time. Because of the fat build-up in your system. Go off the diet at least 14 hours before any intake of alcohol.

      Due to the variety of digestive systems in individuals, this diet will affect everyone differently. After day three, you will have more energy than when you began, if you do not cheat. After being on the diet for several days, you will find that your bowel movements have changed. Eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you don't need caffeine after the third day.

      The basic fat burning soup can be eaten anytime you feel hungry during the seven days. Eat as much as you wish. Remember the more you eat, the more you will lose. You can eat broiled, boiled or baked chicken instead of the beef. Absolutely no skin on the chicken. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need the high protein in the beef for the other days.

      This diet is a good way to cleanse your system and kick start a healthy eating regime for long term weight loss. Remember, after the 7th day you should go off the diet for two days if you want to resume. If you plan to staying on this diet for longer than two weeks consult your physician.

      DO NOT - DO NOT
      No bread, alcohol, carbonated drinks (including diet drinks). Remember, absolutely no fried foods.

      DO - DO - DO - DO
      Drink plenty - at least 6 to 8 glasses - of water a day, as well as any combination of the following beverages: black coffee, unsweetened fruit drinks, cranberry juice and skim milk.

  40. QUESTION:
    Colon Cleanse...Is it a good way to kick start a diet?
    I have about a mth to loose 10-15lbs. Should I use it once a week thru-out my diet & exercise? Also if u have any recipes for a dieting I would greatly appreciate it!

    • ANSWER:
      Program your Weight Loss in as Easy as a Week,
      The idea of the program is to be able for you to develop a consistent approach to weight loss as well as a healthy endurance when exercising. The program’s objective is to get rid of the excesses in your body, the excess fat. Not the healthy and lean muscle tissues and body fluids.

      The program first requires your focus and dedication, so therefore you need to be prepared in both mind and – of course – body. It is highly advised that you first visit your doctor for a check-up before embarking on any weight loss program.

      It is important that when starting on any weight loss program, one should be positive enough to work for the results. Some people get impatient easily but long term effects are assured as long as one sticks to the weight loss plan at hand.

      Stretch, stretch and stretch some more. Before actually doing those exercises and working out those muscles, a little stretching is needed in order to avoid any injury or soreness in your body.

      It is also not advisable for anyone to try too hard. Everything should be done in moderation. Find the level of exercise and training that suits you. It should be enough for you to be comfortable in but not too convenient that it will not be much of a challenge.
      The first week
      The first day of the program involves a long and steady walk in a little over twenty minutes. After the walk, follow it up with a good stretch. This takes so little of your time for the first day. In less than an hour you have taken that first step to a weight loss program that could work to your advantage.

  44. QUESTION:
    What is the recipe for the lemonade used in the Master Cleanse diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Preparing the Lemonade
      Ingredients:
      2 tablespoons lemon juice (use only organic lemons)
      2 tablespoons grade-B maple syrup
      1/10th teaspoon cayenne pepper

      Preparation:
      Dissolve all ingredients in 8 oz water.

      Prepare the lemonade as given. Do not change the proportion of any ingredient. The lemonade may not give you the desired results. Do not substitute the maple syrup or cayenne pepper with anything else. The use of honey in this lemonade is a strict 'NO'.

      You can substitute the water with fresh sugarcane juice if available. If using fresh sugarcane juice eliminate the maple syrup. The reason why this is not usually told is that fresh sugarcane juice is not readily available in the US. This is very useful for persons living in most of the Asian countries where fresh sugarcane juice is available in plenty, not maple syrup.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Looking for a good detox/cleansing diet plan?
    Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knows a good detox or cleansing diet plan i could follow. Nothing too drastic please. I am also planning on working out 3 or 4 times a week while i am on it so i will need energy. Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine. I am left wondering why the alternative practitioners never mention this option to their customers. It's all-natural and proven effective.
      Nutrition experts have warned about the potential dangers of detox diets.
      Catherine Collins, chief dietician at St George’s Hospital in southwest London, said she saw dozens of patients suffering side-effects ranging from bowel problems to potassium depletion. “There is a fixation with the notion that we can detoxify the body through what we eat and drink, but the whole idea has no scientific basis,” said Dr Collins.

      “Your body does a perfectly good job of getting rid of toxins on its own,” says Dr. Nasir Moloo, a gastroenterologist with Capitol Gastroenterology Consultants Medical Group in Sacramento, Calif.

      Colon cleansing can increase the risk of dehydration, and in some cases, certain laxatives can raise the body's electrolyte level--a danger to those with kidney disease or heart disease.

      Working out, fine. Eat a varied and healthy diet. Let your body do the rest, it's good at it's job.

  3. QUESTION:
    sample meal plan of a cleansing diet?
    i've been doing some very unhealthy things lately, like eating bad things and throwing up..
    eating unhealthy things in general, and im afraid that im doing a lot of damage.
    starting tomorrow morning, i want to cleanse myself.

    can someone give me a sample meal plan of a very cleansing, healthy diet?
    im 16, 5'7, and about 114 lbs if that helps.
    thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      hey.
      im 16 too and im five three and weigh more then you do. You honestly do not need to diet considering you are underweight for your height anyway. You're probably really skinny. I wouldnt try to do a cleansing diet because you make yourself really sick when you do that.
      I would stop throwing up and just take it day by day and try to eat better things for you like more fruits and veggies and greens.

      If you really want to do the cleansing diet though you can eat fruit and drink water for 3 straight days. My ant who is 21 did that and she lost 5 pounds and her skin cleared up. it did wonders.

      hope that helped (:

  5. QUESTION:
    What is a good way to lose 25 lbs by the end of June? I am looking for a healthy diet plan that also cleanses?
    It's late April '09 and I would like to lose 25 lbs by late June '09. I have the exercise bit down (walking, yoga, elliptical, biking...) but I am looking for a good diet that will cleanse me out and satisfy me. I want to do something that involves a lot of vegetables and small amounts of meat. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Its going to be harder without meat considering protien is a major help in losing lbs, TRy this ok - Breakfast - eat a ton with no carbs. like 4 eggs and bacon or sausage if you can, the more the better. all you want is fat and protien in the morning. Then lunch just have carbs, without meat or fat. like noodles or pasta - for supper stay away from carbs no bread at all - have as many green veggies as you like all day with out ranch dip or anything like that, And the best cleanse drink one shot in morning and at night of apple cider vinager, it taste real bitter but you get used to it, If you do this for three days straight I promise that after that everyday you do this you will drop 1-2 lbs a every day or two. Dont forgett - eat as much fat and protien in the morning with no carbs at all as you can, and drink that vinager you will be amazed!!! oh and drink throught the day at least 6glasses of water for the first week, 25lbs will be gone in 45 days or so and you have to eat at least 3 times a day - if you miss a meal you will screw up the process, this all will make your body into a fat burning machine - drop soda completely for the first 5 days not even diet soda.

  6. QUESTION:
    Cleansing Diet before actually dieting?
    I know that before dieting it's good to a "detox" diet or a cleansing diet, and i've already been healthily eating for a few days and swimming. Can somebody give me a good detox diet where i can get the ingredients somewhere like Target since I'm at college and i can't really go to any special places? Also, if you have any good diet plans for after cleansing let me know, i need to lose a good 60 pounds. I'm 220, and I'm 18.

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry, but what is all this bs about "cleansing?" A reasonably healthy body does an excellent job of keeping itself clean even when abused ("cleansed") by it's owner.

      Eat healthy, exercise, and drink when you're thirsty or just
      want to. That's all you need to do! Your fantastically designed
      body will do the rest. And your wallet will be proud of you!

      Turning into vegetarian won't help you to lose any weight! It depends on how much you eat! You can gorge on cookies or bread and still be overweight.

    I wanna know all the things to drink how much when and stuff like that.
    I don't want to hear about how its not going work i just want know what to do to make it work ok thanks

    • ANSWER:
      you drink 2 litres of the syrup drink a day (6 large cups)
      You need
      the juice of three lemons
      140ml of palmtree surup (you can use maple if you don't have that)
      1 pinch of cyann peper(or ground ginger)
      add water to make it up to two litres

      Have a cup of senna tea every eveniung and do a salt flush every morning.
      for a salt flush you need
      1L warm/hot water
      1 level tea spoon of sea salt

      drink as much of the 1L as possible and STAY CLOSE TO THE LOO for at least an hour afterwards.
      Do not do the salt flush on the first day as your digestive system has not cleard properly and I'll make you feel sick.

      Take it easy and make sure you don't have to do any physical work during the diet.

  13. QUESTION:
    A diet plan to lose 10 pounds?
    I weigh 140 pounds and 5'4" . I feel uncomfortable with my weight. I want to lose 25-30 pounds really fast but I know that it's kind of impossible unless you do some kind of a cleansing diet or whatever. So for right now, I just want to lose 10 pounds within about 3-4 weeks. or about 2-3 pounds a week. I don't have a diet plan that I can stick to. I mean, first off, when my mom goes to the store, she buys healthy food, but sometimes she buys snacks too, so instead of always eating the healthy food, I sometimes eat the snack food and I really can't control myself to stop. And second, I never feel like excercising. Whenever I tell myself "I'm gonna run a mile later", later comes and then I don't run a mile because I don't feel like it. I just want a diet plan that is easy. If you give me a meal plan of what to eat (stuff that you can find at a regular grocery store) and daily excercises that I should do, that would help. (btw, since March, I have gained about 10 pounds in muscle.
    also, please don't tell me to try any pills, or give me any websites to go to. because most websites that I've visited, you have to sign up for something. I don't want to take pills, sign up for anything, or pay for anything. but... if anybody out there has tried the cleansing diet and knows exactly how to go about it, and/or knows a really good site, then please tell me. I highly doubt my mom will let me sign up for anything, but I will only check out the cleansing diet sites if and only if they are safe and really work. If you did the cleansing diet though and know how to do it by just giving me instructions, then feel free to do so.

    any suggestions for diet plans will be really helpful. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      It is not recommended that you lose more than 2-3 pounds per week. Rapid weight loss can be dangerous & is hard to maintain. losing weight is difficult because 1 lb is 3000 calories, so you must burn 3000 calories per pound you want to lose.

      cut down on your calories, eat lean protein, and whole grains - bread is not bad, so long as it is whole grain & high in fiber, also eat your veggies & drink lots of water. It is best to eat 1200-1500 calories per day, if you eat less than this your metabilism will slow down, making it harder to lose weight.
      NO fast food, no soft drinks (diet or regular) no eating unless you are hungery.

      In order to lose weight & change your body you MUST exercise. Start small and then go big.walk more during the day. Take a walk on your lunch break, walk to the store, aim for 10,000 steps per day a pedomiter is a great idea.
      Do lots of Cardio & weight training. do 30-45 minutes of strength training 3-4 times per week followed by 45-50 minutes of cardio 5-6 times per week. do your strength training 1st, it burns more calories.

      if you really want to lose the weight you are going to have to use dicipline & work hard. your health is worth it!

  14. QUESTION:
    Better cleanse: hollywood miracle diet or the master cleanse?
    Looking to detox my body for a few days before starting a healthier diet plan. Just been eating way too much on the go fast food and alcohol lately. I'm trying to decide between the Hollywood Miracle 48 hour diet and The Master Cleanse plan with the maple syrup, lemon and cayenne pepper. I am interested in which is a more effective detox for the body, as opposed to some kinda of miracle weight loss.

    • ANSWER:
      These are both a rip off. You would get the same result from drinking V-8 Splash Lite or any other Lite fruit juice.

  15. QUESTION:
    The best diet plan/cleanse for couples to do together?
    Me and my boyfriend are both a little heavier set, I am 5'4" and weigh 165lbs, and my boyfriend is 6'4" and weighs 245lbs. We both have been eating a lot of proccessed foods and we wanted to cleanse our bodies -- so we can feel better. We both enjoy all meat and I like veggies alot. We were thinking of doing some type of a 5 day liquid fast... or something along those lines. We don't think we could handle the lemonade diet (with cayanne pepper and honey and lemon -- ewwww!!)

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance! :)

    • ANSWER:
      5 day liquid fast? Eh, you're most likely gonna cheat if you have to go that long without solid food. If you want to feel better, just eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more water instead of sugary stuff like soda. Exercise more, the both of you could start easy and just walk around your neighborhood for 30 minutes to start off, and gradually increase the time/intensity. And if you really want to cleanse yourself, eat more fiber, your body will cleanse itself out if it gets the right nutrients. Don't go for a quick easy diet, commit to a healthy change in your lifestyle.

    What is a good plan for a juice cleanse diet?
    Hi!
    My friend and I are teaming up for a juice cleanse diet. We are planning on doing this for 3 days- one week depending on how we feel it goes. What we need is a pre-thought out plan for what to eat and when. Seeing as this is our first time, we are really just looking for an all over guide to tell us what to do. Options are great, but we would prefer an actual planned out/specific diet for our cleanse.
    Any information is greatly appreciated! Thank you!! :)
    Okay just for starters, I am 22 years old. So that whole "talk to an adult thing" not cool.
    Second, I have done much research in this area and have heard many sucess stories. I have had many problems with my intestines and colon for my whole life and I am willing to try this to see if it will work. Please do not use this post as an opinion outlet, and please do not call me stupid. I am looking for some advice from people who are enthusiastic in this area not a lecure. Thank you.

  18. QUESTION:
    does this diet plan sound good?
    so, here's my plan to get healthy.

    i'm going to do the master cleanse diet anywhere from 10-40 days, i haven't read the book so i don't know how long exactly yet.

    then, i'm going to do a raw vegan diet for a while, so i don't gain all the weight back from the master cleanse, as well as get rid of any toxins left.

    then, i'm going to do a healthy vegan diet (not like those vegans who eat chips and french fries!), which will be my long-term life plan of eating.

    sound good?
    oh yeah i'm already vegan
    oh yeah don't worry, i'm going to be making sure i get all the nutrients i need! i'm studying nutrition (specifically vegan but also just regular nutrition) so i'm pretty sure i'll be good XD

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know Master Cleanse, but 40 days sounds obsessive and dangerous to me.

      The raw vegan diet is a great way to cleans body and mind, we have a retreat nearby where they have one and two week raw diet "vacations."

      I also know that some folks can survive on healthy vegan diets exclusively, but a former coworker who was raised vegan told me she had to have a rare steak once a week or she'd "just die."

      I think the best thing to do is make sure your doctor or health care provider, nutritionist, or nurse knows your plan and just be aware of any changes other than weight that you experience.

      Good luck!

  19. QUESTION:
    I need an easy diet plan for one week?
    I want to diet,just for one week to lose maybe 1-2 pounds. I am an active runner and I haven't been eating well lately. I need a diet plan for one week t lose 1-2 pounds, max. Like I said, I exercise everyday. If you could just give general ideas of calories and what to eat and just basic stuff. I have to go to school everyday so I can't eat very many meals. I just really want to cleanse my system of toxins without supplements and lose some weight.

    • ANSWER:
      Cleansing and detoxing have absolutely no medical benefit and are in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
      There is no "build up" of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
      Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with "mucoid plaque", we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
      Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
      The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
      We "cleanse and detox" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
      We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
      Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
      Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
      Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
      A high fiber diet works every time.
      Spend your money in the produce department instead of giving it away.
      Healthy diet and exercise every time.
      Stay with it.

      Below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

      These foods don't actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.

      Negative calorie fruits:
      apples
      cranberries
      grapefruit
      lemons
      mangoes
      oranges

    • ANSWER:
      Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet

      Background
      The Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet is the creation of Roni DeLuz who is the founder and director of the Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat.

      DeLuz states that the program was originally designed with the purpose of cleansing and nourishing the body. Claims made for the health benefits of the diet are that it will cleanse the digestive system, boost immunity, reduce cellulite and enhance mental clarity. It also helps to change the way people think about food and to foster a new healthy lifestyle which can help with maintaining weight loss if these good habits are kept up.

      The substantial weight loss that occurs on the program DeLuz says is a bonus. However this is certainly the major attraction of the program to many dieters with promised results of 21 pounds in 21 days holding great appeal for those who are looking for fast results.

      Diet Basics
      The diet is centered on liquids such as fresh vegetable juices, live green drinks, berry drinks, herb tea and puréed vegetable soups.

      Permitted vegetables for soups include garlic, beans, carrots, cucumbers, celery, collard greens, kale, beets, sweet potatoes, summer squashes, most green vegetables, tomatoes, and purple cabbage.

      In addition there are several required nutritional supplements such as vitamins, digestive enzymes and aloe vera.

      These are the only foods to be consumed for the entire 21 day program. The plan provides a daily intake of approximately 1000 calories. Caffeine and alcohol must be strictly avoided.

      After 21 days dieters are encouraged to go off the detox diet carefully beginning with adding protein powder, soy milk, yogurt and salmon followed by gradually adding other nutritious foods.

      Antioxidant berry drink, herbal cleansing formula, eight ounces of herb tea and eight ounces of water

      Mid morning

      Eight ounces of water and eight ounces of hot or iced herb tea

      Lunch

      One cup of fresh vegetable juice or a green drink, eight ounces of water, herbal cleansing formula and an enzyme capsule

      Early afternoon

      Eight ounces of water and eight ounces of hot or iced herb tea

      Late afternoon

      Antioxidant or berry drink

      Dinner

      Cleansing soup, one cup of broth, one cup of herb tea, herbal cleansing formula, eight ounces of water and an enzyme capsule

      Early evening

      Eight ounces of water or herb tea

      Bedtime

      Aloe vera supplement

      Exercise Recommendations
      Dieters are advised to walk one mile a day in a quiet relaxed setting or to bounce on a mini trampoline for 20 minutes to help to stimulate the lymphatic system.

      Additional Recommendations
      Colonics, coffee enemas, saunas and lymphatic massage are recommended to help with eliminating toxins.

      Costs and Expenses
      The book costs .95 US however it is a requirement of the program to purchase nutritional supplements from the website which costs 9 plus .95 shipping and handling for the 21 day program.

      A juicer is also essential for the program and these can range in cost from -0.

      Pros
      May be beneficial for people at beginning of a lifestyle change as the dramatic change in routine can help to break unhealthy habits and to increase awareness about food quality in the diet.
      Rapid weight loss can be good psychological incentive for many dieters to continue with a weight loss program.
      High fruit and vegetable intake with an average of 22 serves daily.
      Cons
      Only 20 grams of protein per day which is well below recommended daily intakes. Also lacking in essential fats and fiber.
      Withdrawal from coffee, sugar and alcohol can cause symptoms such as headaches which may make it may be difficult to continue with working and other normal daily routines.
      Socially disruptive as it is impossible to eat out for the entire 21 days unless bringing your own beverages.
      Requirement to purchase nutritional supplements as well as a juicer makes this a very expensive program compared to many other diets.
      Conclusions
      Although dieters are almost guaranteed to lose large amounts of weight on this program it is likely that the majority of this will be muscle rather than fat loss. This in effect sets dieters up to regain weight when a normal diet is resumed due to a reduction in the metabolism.

      Current nutritional models in regard to detoxification diets are that such extreme approaches are unnecessary and may do more harm than good in many cases. If you want to cleanse the body and lose weight the best approach is considered to be a highly nutritious balanced diet.

  22. QUESTION:
    Hey, does anyone know a similar diet plan that has the same idea at the master cleanse?

  23. QUESTION:
    Is there such a thing as a healthy detox diet/plan?
    I'm looking for something that will cleanse my organs. Maybe a one or two day cleanse. Nothing with pills. I'm looking for a natural option. I'm not looking for a weight loss diet or miracle. I'm just looking for something to cleanse my body of toxins. I eat a fairly healthy diet already.
    I'm not looking for weight loss!

    • ANSWER:
      The human body is designed to pass toxins through it on a daily basis. You do not need to detox! This is a joke according to the medical communities and anyone with common sense. If you eat right your body behaves correctly. There is no need to "detox".

    I don't plan to eat a bunch of junk food and go mad, I just want to be healthy...but then next week i go back on the cleansing diet for another 2 weeks i just cnt stay on it for longer than that i have to hav a week of healthy eating.

  26. QUESTION:
    How does this diet plan sound to you?
    Okay, I know it's sort of unhealthy to find the "quick-fix"...but I've slacked on my diet lately and been eating alot of junk...and this Saturday I have 2g2 my friend's Sweet 16 Party....I currently weigh 150, and I'm 5'10. I want to lose as much as I can my this Saturday...At the most 10 lbs....I know you may think it's impossible, but I lose weight really quick(im 14 so im still young)...just as quick as I gain....which can be 5 pounds in 2 days......so anyways, just for now I was thinking...

    Master Cleansing detox...the Beyonce thing.

    I'll bring a bottle of water mixed with cayenne pepper and lemon juice(w/o the syrup) to school and drink it throughout the day, and then when I get home, for dinner I will have some sort of lean protein...like fish or tofu...and veggies. I'm in volleyball so if I feel like I'm about to faint I'll have a granola bar. I will do this tomorrow, friday, and sunday until 7..when the party starts.

    How much weight do u think i'll lose??
    Britta...it's embarassingly unrealistic that you are a top contributor...what you have answered is nothing more than a logical assertion. Which by the way has nothing to do with the question. I obviously am aware that I am no beyonce, what I asked was...let me repeat..."how, much, weight, do, you, think, i'll, loose? And instead of "contributing" and "helping" me with whatever you are learning in medicine school...you gave me a sarcastic statement. Thanks for that, b*****. Lol...you're probably just grouchy because you tried the same plan and it didn't work for you = [ ...lol

    • ANSWER:
      You're not Beyonce.

      Beyonce has lots of money, a personal trainer, and a nutritionist at hand.

      Your plan is embarassingly unrealistic.

    Detoxing/cleansing?
    Hellllo.
    does anyone have a good detox/cleansing diet plan? like a two week one, i need to lose a couple of pounds. any products?

    • ANSWER:
      The best stuff I ever used was called Colonex. Go to Dr. Natura.com. I was doing a cleanse and detox from sugar and caffeine, too. The cost was about for a month supply and it included a parasite cleansing pill and a fiber mixture that wasn't too bad (it tasted like licorice) and a tea that you drink at night. I felt bad for a couple days, then I felt great. It was summer time and I was eating alot of watermelon during the cleanse (just b/c I really like it) and I lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks.

  28. QUESTION:
    Does the Lemonade Detox cleansing diet work?
    anyone try it?
    I'm planning on trying it...the ingredients are specific and it combines with fasting.

    • ANSWER:
      Dont do it!!!
      Its just another fad diet that makes you lose water weight and muscle giving you false sense of success, slows down your metabolism and makes huge contribution to yo-yo cycle.
      You will gain it all and more back when start eating normal again.

  29. QUESTION:
    What does cleansing my diet mean?
    What does this mean? I'm 15, 5'5, 134 pounds and plan to lose weight and my goal is 125. Someone recommended cleansing my diet.. what does this mean?

    • ANSWER:
      They're most likely talking about a cleansing diet, which is nothing more than a useless fad diet that consists of fasting and drinking odd concoctions. They are unhealthy and unnecessary as the body cleanses itself naturally through digestion and elimination.

  32. QUESTION:
    What do you think about this acai diet I plan on doing?
    I plan on doing the Acai berry and the colon cleanse. I've read some articles on it and I am pretty convinced but what do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      Acai berry and Colon cleanse supplements are a combination that cause dramatic weight loss in a short span of time.

      Acai berry supplements contain Acai antioxidants, and nutrients like beneficial fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamins, amino acids, proteins and fiber. The berry is hence able to boost your metabolism, burn fat, suppress fat and build muscle all of which result in dramatic weight loss.

      Acai berry being a natural colon cleanser also expels wastes from your body causing weight loss. Adding a colon cleanse supplement to your diet including Acai supplements helps to enhance the colon cleanse, remove more fecal matter and parasites from your colon and maximize weight loss effects.

      This dual process of losing weight has been adopted by many people who dream of being slim, ever since the technique featured in Oprah Winfrey’s television show.

  33. QUESTION:
    I started the Master Cleanse Diet and i was planning on doing it for 10 days. How important is post diet?
    I ask this because I know you need a few days after the initial 10 days to get your body back to eating normally again. I am going on a cruise in 12 days so how will I be able to do both? Should I end before 10 days? Is the post diet routine that important? Please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know 'cleanse' diets are massively unhealthy for you.

      Here, take a read: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31329422/ns/health-diet_and_nutrition//

      Please find a better alternative. Eat less food, eat healthier food, and work out more, don't buy into these quick-fix things.

  34. QUESTION:
    Anyone here ever done the Master Cleanse Diet?
    Ok I know that this is supposed to be a "cleanse" and not a "diet" but I am planning to try it for the purpose of losing weight. I'm getting married in 6 weeks and I want to drop some weight before then. I only plan to do it for 10 days and then do a low cal diet and exercise after that. I want to know how much weight I should expect to lose while on the diet and if the Grade B syrup is a must. Can you use regular syrup and still lose weight??? Thanx.

    • ANSWER:
      My wife recently went through the exact same plan you're talking about, with only a few exceptions that I think will help make your dieting process much less painful and the results that much more noticeable.

      1. The Master Cleanse diet usually results in the loss of 10-20 pounds, depending on how rigorously you adhere to the plan.
      2. The Grade B syrup is a must - in fact, I actually recommend doubling the amount - it'll increase results substantially.
      3. Usually regular syrup is still acceptable for losing weight - what my wife did was use about 2.5 times the amount of the syrup and she still had much more control over her dieting. Just make sure not to go overboard.

  35. QUESTION:
    Best kind of fast/cleansing routine to start a diet with?
    I'm starting a diet (again) and really need 2 know what a good cleansing plan to follow would be. Honestly, I am always really constipated and think that is part of the reason i have so much fat in my stomach area (it goes down sometimes after... you know) , which really discourages my weight loss efforts. I was wondering if anyone has an idea for a safe and effective fast or flusher , because if my stomach flattened even slightly it would really help motivate me.to lose these 10-15 lbs. Thx!

  36. QUESTION:
    Can i go a week with only fruits and water?
    I've heard about the master cleanse or the lemonade diet but thats not going to work for me. If i go a week only consuming fruits and water (because i dont like vegetables) will it be okay or is it very un healthy. Also do you know any other cleansing diet plans that work?

    • ANSWER:
      No. You need your protein, so find some lean meats to continue with that diet.
      Why don't you like vegetables, though? There are plenty that are really good and really good for you, and you probably just haven't even tried them yet, like broccoli, spinach, celery, carrots, celery, lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes.
      You need a variety of food, not just fruits and water.

  38. QUESTION:
    Isagenix Cleanse Diet--normal to gain weight on the first day?
    So, probably being just super paranoid here, but I started the Isagenix Cleanse diet today. It's basically a plan where you drink a cleansing drink four times per day, drink lots of water, and eat up to six little snack wafers if you get hungry. You're supposed to do this for two days, then switch to the next part of the diet, which is protein shake meal replacement.

    I'm just a little bit discouraged because, from this morning to this evening, I gained two pounds. Is this just all the water I've been drinking, or what? :/

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how your body reacted of the way you choose your diet. The best diet is don't skip meal and eat healthy foods. Do the exercise regularly to burn fats and just enjoy what you are doing. Don't be paranoid.

    Planning on doing the master cleansing diet and wondering how much weight i can loose in 15dayz
    Please respond ONLY if you have done the diet before.

    • ANSWER:
      it varies person to person. i do the cleanse twice a year and love it. i lose about a pound a day...on a few occasions 2 pounds a day. you would most likely lose at least 10 pounds. i have alot of friends and family who have done it with me and no one has ever lost under 10 pounds in 10 days. if you've never done it before... word of advice. the first 3 days are bad but by day 4 your hunger subsides and body regulates and its smooth sailing from there out. so hang in.

    Is the detox diet(body cleansing) bad for you if done once a month!?

  44. QUESTION:
    What do you think of the 'cleansing' or 'flush' diets?
    I've been reading a lot about it on the internet, and I've seen many opinions saying that diet wise, it's the easiest and fastest way to lose weight. But then there are the negative opinions saying that drinking only water for 3 days is damaging to your health and extremely dangerous.

    So what is your opinion on this new dieting plan?
    Do you think it's dangerous and risky?

    • ANSWER:
      Its not dangerous at ALL.
      Thats a myth people believe because they think your starving yourself.

      Are you fasting to cleanse your body also?

      If you are, that's definitely the way to go. I mean think of it this way,
      the point of fasting is to rid all the toxins from the body and lose weight right? Think of all those hidden toxins in those artificial flavors and tastes...

      Ive lost 13 pounds in 8 days of Pure water fasting, But as soon as you start eating again you ll gain it all back & maybe more cause you metabolism is slower than EVER. That's what happened to me, but im more educated on this and im gonna start again.

      And If you have anything else besides water, your cravings will be SO much more Intense. Wich is like pure torture to me lol!

      Im sure you ll loose a ton even with out working out, you will be using the fat on your body as energie, you ll be burning carbs like crazy doing you normal routine a day.

      But with out food you ll have NO energie trust me, and your heart will be trying to rest as much as possible, it could be dangerous if you labor yourself too much... (fainting, hyperventilating) ect.

      the pro side is that after everything youll feel more energetic and eat less normaly. Youll be pure !

      Good luck! & stay strong = )

    Cleansing diet help!?
    To prepare for the holidays I want to lose some 5 to 10 pounds in 11 days or at least before the 24th. That is the goal although I'm not sure it will be possible I don't want to do any crash diets that can damage my organism. But if you have ever heard the saying "Aim for the sky and you'll reach the ceiling. Aim for the ceiling and you'll stay on the floor" maybe you'll understand what I'm trying to do.
    I already excersise at least 3 times a week and when it is possible 7 times a week. But due to a terrible hectic schedule I've been having I have not been able to eat very well. I have heard that cleansing your body first is the best thing before you diet to lose weight. Is that true? If so what cleansing method should I use.
    I was planning on doing a liquid diet tomorrow only water and green or black tea. And If I get to a point were I can;t take it then I'll eat cucumber, broccoli or a carrot.
    I don't know too much about diets so what do you recommend. By the way I am only slightly overweight my BMI is at 25.6 hence the reason I want to lose those 5 or 10 pounds to reach my ideal weight and be able to eat whatever I want during the holidays.
    Please help :D
    By the way I don't plan on going on liquids for the next 11 days just the one day I assume it takes to cleanse the body. After I will continue on a 1600 calorie diet.

  48. QUESTION:
    I'm on the master cleanse diet and have a few questions?
    I started the lemon master cleanse yesterday, so I'm on day 2. And, I wanted to know if anyone has ever done it? And, how many days before they noticed a difference on the scale and in the mirror? I also have done the salt water flush both nights as
    Well. I plan on continuing the diet for 8 more days.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm currently doing it - I'm on day 10 at the moment. I weighed myself today and I've lost 10 pounds or 4.5 kilos in 10 days.

      You should do the salt water flush first thing in the morning - before drinking anything and you should have a herbal laxative tea in the evening. If you don't like the swf you can instead drink the laxative tea in the morning as well as in the evening.

      I'm doing it for 21 days. Good luck with it. Day 3 was the hardest day for me. It does get easier, stick with it. Make sure you also drink plenty of water in addition to the lemon drink.

  49. QUESTION:
    Is it better to start the lemonade cleanse diet right after a normal diet, or slowly proceeding into it?
    I'm planning on starting the lemonade cleanse diet again (and make it last for more than four days this time!)
    & I was wondering, I've been eating a lot recently.

    Is it better to do like a water fast or a vegetable fast for two or three days, and then start the lemonade cleanse diet?

    or is it okay to just jump right into the lemonade diet ?
    personal opinions?

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't advice you to do any water fast or veggie fasting weight loss before you start out your lemonade cleanse diet. What i'm worried most is you are not getting enough nutrients and your poor gastric might not be able to take it.

      It would be much better if you start to consume a low fat diet ,cut down the intake of processed food e.g sausages and proceed to the lemonade diet right after. As far as most dieters are concerned,this diet plan will assist their body to expel the toxins ( it is known that such toxins in our bodies are the key factors for making us overweight)

  50. QUESTION:
    Cleansing the body, question about specific diet?
    Now, I've recently decided to get healthy myself, body, mind and soul. I feel like if I am going to be successful in my future and my life, I must first be successful in my present and in my body. I quit smoking, I'm a vegetarian (less of a health thing and more of an environment thing), I barely drink at all, and I don't do any drugs besides caffeine, I do yoga every day and exercise regularly.
    I am thinking about doing a body cleanse, and not the store bought or soup kind, but the cranberry juice, veggies, water and skim milk one, for a week, and I was wondering a couple of things.
    It's still okay for me to take my daily vitamins, right? And also, I am addicted to coffee and caffeine and do not plan on giving that up (I figure I can have that one guilty pleasure, right?) so I was wondering, non-fat lattes are just skim milk and coffee. And you can have black coffee in a cleansing diet, I've read, so...
    What do you think? Is it cheating?

    • ANSWER:
      The whole detox thing is a load of mystical, new-agey BS with no scientific evidence to support it, so you're probably capable of planning your own "body cleansing" programme that's just as good as anything you could buy from a book, guru, ashram, spa, holistic-practitioner or any other self-proclaimed expert you might chose.

      As long as you don't go to ridiculous extremes (drinking so much water that your electrolyte balance is upset and you die, for example) you can do whatever you damn well please as part of your own detox plan and then declare yourself "cleansed" when you feel it is so.


Cleansing Diet Menu

Written By: admin - May• 03•12

Strong determination is needed for detox diet sample menu program. If you are planning to start a Detox diet sample menu, it will be more desirable that your doctor approves this too and you have consulted a nutritionist as well. People who are not able to control their longing for food cannot go through this plan. Like a person who is a chocolate lover and cannot leave chocolates, how will he be able to follow the detox diet sample menu? The detox diet sample menus can assist you in achieving your goal of body detoxification, but the real transformation comes from inside!

Aim of Detox Diet Sample Menus:

These detox diet sample menu programs help the body to provide nutrients & antioxidants that intensify the body’s defensive mechanism. Secondly, they eradicate the toxins from the body & free the body of harmful waste substances. There is no fixed time limit for a detox diet sample menu program; they may last for a week or even for a month! It depends on the person if he or she can get along with this with slight changes in his menu due to detox diet sample menu.

Detox Diet Sample Menu - Morning Recipe:

After getting up in the morning you may drink half lemon or any juicy fruit squeezed, with a glass of water. That means the first thing that should enter your body should be water but nothing else! You can also add flaxseeds to the above recipe. For breakfast you can take fruit salad of your own choice, apple with cabbages. Another example of a fruit salad is half papaya seeded & sliced, one banana sliced, one peer sliced, half cup strawberries, six grapes, six tablespoons of unsweetened fruit juice and one teaspoon of maple syrup, which may or may not be added. Don’t add any dairy product such as cream, butter or mayonnaise.

For the morning snack drink a cup of tea. If you want to munch in between eat the fruits but nothing else like chapatti etc. You also have the option to choose to have fruit or vegetable salad for lunch & dinner. For mid afternoon snack take chamomile tea. But the main purpose if that you should keep yourself away from worthless rubbish fruit. You can also supplement the energy by other ways.

Keep Yourself Away From Starchy And Canned Food

You are allowed to make variety of combinations of fruits & vegetables in your diet as long as they are fresh and not canned. Because fruits loose their vitamins when they are treated upon by preservatives and other solutions and the whole purpose of diet is wasted! For a healthy detox diet sample menu try having a breakfast made with banana, pineapple, and rice milk & rice protein. These food supplements may go along with your detox diet sample menu but the primary aim is to keep you away from starchy & fatty foods. You can also take fruit juices for morning & afternoon snacks.

The Ultimate Lunch Recipe:

For lunch time, take a vegetable soup and it could be a combination of vegetable stock and the vegetables of your own choice and taste. Top your brown rice with sliced broccoli with sesame seeds, beets, drops of lemon juice, apple sauce & your multivitamins. Make sure that you don’t fry the vegetable but steam them because oil is in fact fat! The real trick in successful detox diet sample menu is that you have to take in as much fruits & vegetables in a way that your body accepts them instead of rejecting or disliking them and by adding taste into them so that your taste buds does not reject them.

Mind you this detox diet sample menu will do wonders to your skin, even if it does not benefit the rest of your body.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a personal trainer, I would have to see a picture of you, know your body fat, and know how much you weigh to know exactly what you should be taking in.

  3. QUESTION:
    I need dieting advice, please help?
    Okay, so I am 27 yrs old, a momma of three which I had in 3 1/2 yrs so not really giving my body time to get "back to normal". I would consider myself more chunky then fat. I weigh 141 lbs, I am 5'1" and have naturally large breasts - 34DDD. In feb of this year I was 130 lbs and have just been gaining -yes I know it is because I have very little will power and don't exercise. I can do good on diets if I am not hungry all day. as soon as I get hungry I start looking for food, and since I am a stay at home mom it is easy to find food.
    I am wondering if there is a sort of diet or menu plan out there and any step (body cleanse, diet pills..etc. ) that seem to work together to keep you satisfied and works. - That's not too much to ask for is it. :)
    But if anyone knows of anything or has any ideas. please let me in on your secrets.

    • ANSWER:
      Heh. Basically, as I've said before, you need a caloric deficit. If you can manage to just cut out 500 calories from your current basal metabolism a day, you'll lose a pound of fat each week.

      In terms of keeping yourself satisfied, I'd suggest a two-pronged approach. One: Keep only healthy food nearby (that way, if you get the urge to eat, you can't overindulge too badly). Two: Eat foods high in fiber and protein. These two things tend to fill you up better, and give you a fuller feeling, than other alternatives. Oatmeal, protein bars, and fruits are all excellent sources of things kinds of things.

  4. QUESTION:
    Will this diet work? How much weight will I lose?
    Starting tomorrow I will begin this diet:
    Day 1 and 2: eat nothing but fruits and and water/lemon water
    Day 3 and 4: add vegetables to your fruit menu and nothing but water/lemon water
    Day 5 and 6: do the same thing with days 1-4
    Day 7: add meat and bread into your menu include a light desert.
    Water/lemon water only
    I'll do this everyday but alternate it.
    I'm not eating more than 1,200 calories a day.
    I'm also taking a colon cleanse everyday.
    For my exercise:
    I have this book where it gives me exercises to do. I'll also be running/walking.

    Will I lose weight? If so how much?

    • ANSWER:
      The "colon cleanse" will just force you to waste all the healthy food you are eating.
      Throw that junk out. Eat a well balanced diet including meat, dairy, nuts, whole grains.
      There really aren't bad foods. There are just "over processed" foods that are bad for us. And eating too much food period.
      Any diet that excludes any food group is a fad diet destined to fail.

    what can i eat on the slimquick cleanse?
    I don't really like most of the foods on the menu plan they supply. I'm already dieting as it is, so I won't be eating anything bad. But was wondering if I should stay away from anything to avoid unpleasant side affects.

    • ANSWER:
      I know, the menu is so restrictive! I'm doing the slimquick cleanse also but i'm not following their menu at all. I'm actually following this diet that I saw in Woman's World magazine... It's just a normal low-calorie diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables. Honestly, I think as long as you watch what you eat you'll be fine... Don't eat anything super bad for you unless in moderation! Good luck!

    eating out - but on a cleanse?
    I started a cleanse a few days ago and it comes with a diet plan, basically i can eat any fruits and veggies, leans meats (no red meat) and a very small amount of complex carbs. I am going out for sushi today with the staff at work and i was wondering what i would be able to order off the menu that follows the guidelines of the cleanse - i can't have any white rice since it is not a complex carb.

    Also i have already broken one of the food rules and ate a small amount of steak and got diareah, so it is very important to follow the rules!

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm it might be difficult if you're not eating white rice. You can load up on edamame, and then have some sashimi like salmon or yellow tail. Actually now that I think of it, I'm sure it will be quite easy to stay away from the rice, and just order some vegetable dishes and raw fish.

      Have lots of green tea!!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    does anyone have the master cleanse lemonade diet recipe?

    • ANSWER:
      Lemonade Diet (The Master Cleanser)

      The lemonade diet is a detoxification program written by the Stanley Burroughs. The diet - called the "The Master Cleanser" was written in the 1940s and continues to be popular to this day.

      This dietary regime is strictly a cleansing diet. Weight loss will occur, but it is not to be equated with fat loss. Much of the weight that is lost will be from fluid and water retention. Without a doubt, at least 1/2 the weight will come back on after completing the diet. Many people incorrectly use this for fast weight loss. This is not what the diet is intended for.

      Detox diets such as the lemonade diet are not for the faint-hearted. They are difficult to follow. People experience varying degrees of success as their body begins to flush itself of toxins - but the first few days are hardest. Some only use the lemonade diet for 4-5 days, while others take it out to 2 weeks.

      People report an enormous number of health benefits - relief of arthritic symptoms, infections, pain, gout, and many more.

      A typical herbal detox will do the following:
      - Dissolves and eliminates toxins that have formed in any part of the body
      - Cleanse kidneys and digestive system
      - Purifies the glands and cells
      - Eliminate waste and hardened material in joints and muscles
      - Relieves pressure and irritation in nerves, arteries and blood vessels

      Lemonade Diet Sample
      - 60 oz spring water per day (spread over 6 10 oz glasses)
      - 12 tablespoons Ogranic Grade B Maple Syrup(or 2 tbsp. per glass)
      - 12 tablespoons freshly squeezed organic lemon juice (or 2 tbsp. per glass)
      - a little over half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or 1/10 tsp. per glass) or to taste

      The only other foods consumed are a laxative tea twice a day and a saline (sea salt) wash. The laxative may be required due to the lack of fiber in the diet that may lead to constipation.

      Breaking the Fast
      This must be done gently, by easing your way back into solid food. Vegetable soup is a good starter, and fruits and vegetables shouldn't be started until the second day out of the juice fast.

  2. QUESTION:
    Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet Recipe?
    please someone list the recipe how many times do i drink it a day??
    and i dont get it when and how many times do i drink the sea salt water???

    • ANSWER:
      Don't do Master Cleanse. It doesn't cleanse you, it doesn't help you burn fat, and it could be dangerous. Eat healthy, exercise, and get plenty of sleep, and your body cleanses itself with no problem.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you tried looking it up online? Why do you expect people to do the research for you when you haven't done it? Ask questions only if you can't find the answer on your own.

  5. QUESTION:
    Has any one done the Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet?
    If so how do you preparer it and what else can you eat while your in these diet???

    The lemonade diet recipe detail is here:
    • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon.
    • 2 tablespoons of grade B Maple Syrup.
    • Add cayenne pepper according to your preference
    • A glass of pure water.

    • ANSWER:
      I did the master cleanse diet for 7 days. First I suggest you get the book "The Master Cleanse" by Stanley Burroughs. It's very cheap on Amazon or half.com,especially if you buy it used.

      The book contains all the reasons for being on this diet, how to make the drink, and (very important) how to break the fast when you go back to solid food.

      You will have to listen to your body and decide how closely to follow Burrough's suggestions. He recommends eating NO food at all during this fast. Instead drink 6 to 12 glasses of the lemonade each day, and most likely you will not feel hunger at all.

      Combine 2 tbsp of fresh lemon (I was a fanatic & added lemon pulp from the lemon) with the other ingredeints you mentioned. The water should be warm (Burroughs calls it medium hot). Cayenne can be up to 1/10 of a tspn. I used even less.

      For the 7 days I was on the cleanse, I felt fine and didn't get hungry. If you don't want to fast competely, my suggestion is to stick to raw veggies & fruit. Keep bacon cheeseburgers to a minimum =)

      There are critics of the Master Cleanse diet. The cleanse was great for me, but you can see the critics in the 2nd link below.

      One Final Note: Beware of people who answer your question and suggest you buy products from their own website. For example, see the first person who answered your question.

  10. QUESTION:
    Lemonade Cleanse 10 day diet? Help me with recipe please!!!?
    Hey all!! I was watching La Ink last nite, and two of the girls made a "lemonade cleanse". It's a diet you do for 10 days and you drink as much of this "lemonade" drink as you want. You mix lemon juices, filtered water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It's supposed to help you lose weight and detox your body.
    OK so... My question is:
    In the recipe for the "lemonade" you're supposed to use maple syrup. Well I messed up and when I went to the store today, I got pure molasses. Does anyone know about this lemonade cleanse?
    Can I use the molasses instead of the maple syrup? And if not, what kind of maple syrup? It's not supposed to be the kind you use on pancakes and stuff... So what kind is it!?!?
    Thanks you guys!! TGIF!!! Have a great weekend!!

    • ANSWER:
      I heard about that and asked my father about it- you are not doing your body justice with that. You may think your cleansing- but your really killing.

      try laxatives instead- and when you finish you will need to eat a lot of yogurt to replace all of the organisms that will have died.

    The Master Cleanse Recipe - How To Make The Lemonade

    Here's the recipe for making the Master Cleanse lemonade:

    * 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice

    * 2 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup

    * 1/10 Teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

    * 10 oz of filtered water

    That recipe is for a single serving of lemonade, and you should drink 6-12 servings a day.

    Salt Water Flush Recipe

    You would need to prepare a teaspoon of organic sea salt (not iodized salt) with 25 – 35 oz of warm water. Mix well and do your best to drink the solution in one go. If it is difficult to drink, use normal temperature water then.

    It is best to drink the salt water flush before drinking the lemonade in the morning as it is more effective with empty stomach.

    Did it work for u?do u try it often? how long do u do it? any pointers or advice on it?
    http://themastercleanse.org/the-lemonade-diet/

    • ANSWER:
      It works.

      And it is proven.

      Just ask Beyonce or Robin Bivens.

      I have done it myself and so have several of my friends. Sure there are precautions as with any diet but this one has been around since 1947 and it was originally written by a doctor. Buy the paperback book (its a short read) by Dr Stanley Burroughs to get your facts straight and DO EXACTLY as he prescribes. The only other written version I would recommend is a very current book by Peter Glickman called "Lose Weight, Have More Energy, & Be Happier in 10 Days" and it is predominately testiomonials regarding this detox system. Honest testimonials - both pro and con - from people who agreed to have their comments published.

      As for the naysayers... This is a liquid diet (as well as a detox / cleanse) and ALL reputable "fat farms" (aka weight loss centers / resorts) use liquid diets or dieting as part of their regimen. When done correctly, it is a wonderful tool for a healthy body and mind.

      Much success to you my friend!

  13. QUESTION:
    What is the recipe for the lemonade used in the Master Cleanse diet?

    • ANSWER:
      Preparing the Lemonade
      Ingredients:
      2 tablespoons lemon juice (use only organic lemons)
      2 tablespoons grade-B maple syrup
      1/10th teaspoon cayenne pepper

      Preparation:
      Dissolve all ingredients in 8 oz water.

      Prepare the lemonade as given. Do not change the proportion of any ingredient. The lemonade may not give you the desired results. Do not substitute the maple syrup or cayenne pepper with anything else. The use of honey in this lemonade is a strict 'NO'.

      You can substitute the water with fresh sugarcane juice if available. If using fresh sugarcane juice eliminate the maple syrup. The reason why this is not usually told is that fresh sugarcane juice is not readily available in the US. This is very useful for persons living in most of the Asian countries where fresh sugarcane juice is available in plenty, not maple syrup.

  14. QUESTION:
    Cheap lemonade diet recipe?
    I know all the sites say to use organic lemonade juice fresh squeezed and special maple syrup but i don't really have the money to go buy a ton of organic stuff. Can the diet still work if i use regular syrup or molasses, though i realize i won't get the vitamins or whatever that i'd get from the other syrup. and can i use lemon juice from the bottle? this stuff is just so much cheaper. will it still cleanse me?

    • ANSWER:

  15. QUESTION:
    EASY 10 POINTS!! What is the recipe for the full day supply of the lemonade on the master cleanse diet?
    First answerer gets the to points!!

    • ANSWER:
      60 ounces of filtered water
      12 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup
      12 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
      1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
      There are a couple important things to remember when preparing the lemonade.

      For one, the lemon juice used must be fresh squeezed. This cannot be emphasized enough. It is necessary to use fresh produce. Canned juice won't work and will erase most of the benefits of using the master cleanser diet.

      Also, the maple syrup must be grade B maple syrup, not the sugar filled syrup that is used at the breakfast table.

      The cayenne pepper might seem unnecessary, but it is actually very important. Not only does it help to add a bit of a kick, but the pepper helps to break up mucus and increases healthy blood flow. It also is a good source of B and C vitamins, commonly referred to as Super Vitamins due to their many benefits for the body.

      Mixing teas with the recipe is one way to help modify things, just make sure It's decaffeinated tea because caffeine can restrict blood vessels and we want to keep your body passages as open as possible.

      Adding a Natural Laxative To Help Flush Out Your System
      Taking a laxative will speed up the detoxing process, and help your body eliminate waste.

      I prefer ingestible laxatives like, sea salts, and herbal tea. These are ideal methods for cleaning the colonic tract without the harmful effects of colonics and enemas.

      Drinking 1 teaspoon of unrefined non-iodized sea salt mixed with 25-35 ounces of water will flush out your system.

      It's best to use either of these laxatives (or both of them) 2 times a day. I've found it best to take them in the morning and before I go to bed.

      Also, I advise you give yourself at least an hour and a half before you go out when you do this. These laxatives will work fast, and you will discover why you should probably be at home near a bathroom when you use them.

  16. QUESTION:
    Has anyone did the master cleanse diet, lemonade drink?
    I am wanting to try it..its the lemonade diet drink..I got the recipe off the internet..I heard it really worked..cleanses your body and you lose weight..you have to drink 6-12 glasses a day for 10 days...well they said there is certain foods you can actually eat with the diet but you had to buy the book to see the foods..most people dont eat anything for 10 days..so I was wondering if anyone did this diet, if they ate anything with it and if it worked?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Of course you're going to lose weight.. you aren't eating anything. Don't buy into any detoxes or diet drinks.. all it's going to do is starve you. It won't "cleanse" you at all.. your body does that naturally. All the water weight that you DO lose from not eating, you're going to gain right back when you start eating again.

    HERES THE DIET::
    This is the complete Lemonade Diet including recipes. Proponents of the diet claim a person can lose anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds during the ten day diet period. Make sure you consult with your doctor before starting the Lemonade Diet.

    The instructions for the lemonade diet are as follows:

    1. Drink about 100 ounces of the lemonade per day.

    2. Drink the salt water flush in the morning as soon as you wake up and drink the herbal laxative tea at night before bed.

    3. You cannot eat anything while on the Lemonade Diet. You drink only the lemonade, the saltwater flush, and the herbal tea.

    4. The Lemonade Diet is a cleansing and elimination diet, which claims to help rid the body of toxins along with helping you to lose weight fast.

    Lemonade Diet Lemonade Recipe:

    2 oz. of fresh squeezed lemon juice (must be fresh squeezed)
    2 oz. of maple syrup (must be grade B, organic maple syrup)
    1/4 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper
    2 cups of water (spring water or purified water)

    Mix all ingredients well.

    This makes approximately 20 ounces of lemonade, or two servings.

    You will need to drink about 10 servings a day.

    Salt Water Flush Recipe:

    2 teaspoons salt
    1 quart of water

    Mix well. Allow at least 30 minutes after drinking before leaving the house. You'll need to be near the bathroom.

    • ANSWER:
      I do a lot of research on diets and fad diets. I have an article that I think you should read, it is listed below. These fad diets like the lemonade diet are not a safe way to lose weight. I really think you will find the information in the article very helpful. At the end of my article is a link to a review site that I have where I have reviewed 5 different diets that are both safe and effective, they give you a diet plan but they also set you up with a work out plan which is what you have to have to get the weight off and keep it off and to do it safe. Please take a look at the article and the review site as I think they will help. Take care and good luck. Most of all be happy with yourself and be safe.

  21. QUESTION:
    questions about the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet?
    Can I just use store bought products [lemon juice from the bottle, cayenne pepper flakes, etc.]. I know the maple syrup has to be actual maple syrup. I was wondering if the above actually have to do with just being fresh or will this really affect the recipe?
    also, if you've tried this, did you experience fatigue or, I'd imagine, diarreah?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can make your own homemade recipe... as long as you know all the ingredients it is so much cheaper!
      I tried to do this and went to bed on day one with such a bad headache, and woke up with a puking migraine. I also experienced diarrhea on day 2... sorry to report that was enough for me and I just couldn't handle the withdrawal symptoms. I have heard that a 'cleanser' is a very good way to remove toxins from your body... so I would like to suggest that in addition to the (lemonade) you add plenty of fresh fruits and veggies... just be prepared to go through possible severe side effects that should subside after day 4. Best of luck hun!

  22. QUESTION:
    master cleanse aka lemonade diet directions?
    how do i do the whole 10 day cleanse, including the sea salt, the lemonade, how much should i drink per a day? what is the recipe.. help me please?

    • ANSWER:
      That is just so unhealthy. I thought about doing it and my dietician very seriously warned me against it. Your metabolism will stop dead in its tracks, you'll feel sluggish and tired ... just not good. You can get a lot of benefits of lemon by squeezing lemon into your water every day, and if you're doing it to lose weight, why don't you try eating whole foods and getting regular exercise? That is the only way to achieve lasting results.

  23. QUESTION:
    The master cleanse diet, a.k.a the lemonade diet - have you tried it?
    I am really thinking about trying this! There seems like there are MANY benefits to gain from this detox/cleanse! Have you tried it? What did you think about it? What were your results? Anything you would do differently? Would you recommend it to others? Also, I have type 1 diabetes and I know there is a different "recipe" for type 2, but I'm not sure if I should go with that recipe or with the original one.... any suggestions? Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      Amy -
      The master cleanse or starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
      You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight.
      The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
      The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel (catabolism), not the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
      When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming.
      The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
      If you really want to lose some weight for good drink lots of ice water, 100 oz per day. Eat a healthy breakfast to kick start the metabolism. Eat a snack every two hours if possible. Eat three good meals a day, the largest at lunch. No food after 8 p.m. Maybe plain popcorn air popped or cooked in canola oil only.
      You need to eat tons of fiber. It cleans the system hourly and accelerates the metabolism.
      Eat to lose!
      Good luck

    Does the Beyonce Lemon Detox Diet work?
    the lemon detox diet consists of : The lemonade diet recipe detail is here:
    • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon.
    • 2 tablespoons of grade B Maple Syrup.
    • Add cayenne pepper according to your preference
    • A glass of pure water.

    and basically you just drink it instead of having meals and its suppose to cleanse your insides out, beyonce does this and many other celebrities but i want to know if anybody else has tried it and does it lose your weight?

    • ANSWER:
      If you break this down:
      Lemon = acidic and fibrous
      Maple syrup = sugar
      Cayenne pepper = acidic and stimulant
      Water = duh

      What you have is a yummy concoction of DIURETIC!!!

      Quite simply, you replace meals with a diuretic, you will cleanse.
      Better stay close to a toilet, though! This is going to cleanse VERY QUICKLY!!!
      Actually, the word EXPLOSIVE comes to mind!

    what are some other ways?

    p.s. none of that crap about how it hurts and its not healthy...i am overweight and my other overweight friends got real good results

    • ANSWER:
      is it that lemon/maple syrup/ cayenne pepper fast?

      remember a cleanse is not a diet, but a fast.. dont think of it as a diet..
      you only use it for a day or two, then eat properly, then maybe choose one day a week to do the lemon/cleanse. the other days, you need to eat a proper healthy diet to provide the proper nutrients and vitamins your body needs to sluff off the toxins, fats, and waste that has built up inside you..

      Do NOT think of this as a diet..

  28. QUESTION:
    What homemade remedy should I use for a colon cleanse?
    I want to do a colon cleanse. I have been eating healthy and exercising but my bowel movements haven't been normal. I have been having a bowel movement every day but it's just not as much as it used to be. I feel very bloated all the time. Even when I stop eating 3 hours before going to bed I still always wake up feeling full. I think it might also be contributed to extra water weight that I haven't lost yet. I'm thinking of doing the master cleanse (lemonade diet) for a couple of days. Or maybe a saltwater flush? I have used magnesium citrate before but it didn't even make me use the restroom. Anyway, any advice you have is greatly appreciated. What do you think I should do? Do you have any homemade colon cleanse recipes? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The salt water flush is actually part of the Master Cleanse program (you do it every day that you're on the cleanse to ensure that your system remains clean), so it sounds like the Master Cleanse might be exactly what you're looking for. Do some more research and decide if it's right for you, but it would definitely help address the bloating and extra water weight you describe above.

    Anyone ever done the Lemonade diet?

      Decrease your protein intake, and eat cooked, grilled, and raw veggies all day long. Lemon juice is good, but after a while it will make you nauseous.

  31. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to use organic A maple syrup....?
    So I am trying the cayenne pepper and lemonade cleanse diet, and when I saw the recipe for it, I found out that I had to use organic B maple syrup but I had organic A, I just tried some today but I didn't really feel nothing, except the spice in the cayenne pepper, but not really any energetic boost.
    So is it okay to use organic A maple syrup ?

    • ANSWER:
      Grade A is lighter in both color and flavor than Grade B. Generally Grade A is for table use and Grade B is more for cooking and baking.

      For your purposes I can't see why it would matter.

    * 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice

    * 2 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup

    * 1/10 Teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

    * 10 oz of filtered water

  34. QUESTION:
    Anyone know a good detox/cleanse diet????
    I think there is a recipe with lemonade and something crazy like hot sauce? Does anyone know what that is or are there any other good detoxes?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, when detoxing, you must make sure that you are doing it in a gentle and healthful way! I highly recommend the Arbonne products.

      They have a Daily Detox Tea, which you can drink three times a day to naturally cleanse the body of toxin build-up in the liver, kidneys and blood stream. Its scary how many toxins we consume everyday, and this gentle yet effective product really eliminates well.

      The Colon Cleanse from Arbonne is also great. It may sound gross, but the colon can hold POUNDS of toxic waste... this supplement gently rids the body of toxins without sending you to the bathroom with diahrehha or weakening your muscles.

      They also have fantastic supplements, fiber shakes and other health products that all contribute to toxin elimination and natural health. This really is an exceptional company, with safe products that actually work.

      ALSO: remember that a huge part of how the toxins get in your body in the first place is from food-- and not just the fatty stuff! Fruits and veggies are cleansed with all sorts of disinfectants that shouldn't enter the human body, but they do. That doesn't mean don't eat them, it just means that incorporating a specific detox product like Arbonne's will eliminate all of that build-up, and not contribute more!

  36. QUESTION:
    Master Cleanse! Does it work?
    Hi! I want to lose 10 lbs fast and heard the Master Cleanse diet really works! I have the recipe for the lemonade but am wondering how it actually works? Can I eat anything while on it? Does it make you feel sick at all?
    Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      I did this diet for 1 week. It was very hard! The lemonade just starts to make you sick after a few days. My advice is to omit the cayenne pepper, it makes it hard to drink every day. I did lose 10 lbs though. I have actually kept it off. You are not supposed to eat anything though, just drink the lemonade. I never felt sick on the diet, but I did start to feel weak towards the end of the week. Try it, but don't go longer than a week. Honestly, I would not do it again since it was so hard, and I really think there are better ways to lose weight...BUT it is a good way to lose weight fast, even if you probably will gain it back shortly after.

      Good luck!

  38. QUESTION:
    Help, I did not follow the directions correctly for the master cleanse?
    Someone had given me the recipe for the master cleanse and without doing any research I started it 3 days ago. All I was aware of was the lemonade diet, it did not mention anything about salt water flush or laxative tea. So therefore, I have not been doing anything to eliminate the toxins. In the past 3 days I have felt really good and have lost 8 pounds. But not that I have been reading about the cleanse I am worried about the toxins and not quite sure what to do at this point. I would rather just quit the diet or come off slowly right now but I feel I need to get rid of the toxins right now. If anyone cal held please advise asap!! Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      What you did was perfectly fine and you benefitted. See site below about it with quotes from 18 MDs. Some people have made the Master Cleanse into a cult. They hate what you did. They do not want people to know how it really works and it works without the SWF. Maybe since the founder is dead, they decided to make him into a savior figure like Jesus Christ.

      Follow the MC instructions exactly or you are going straight to hell.

    Master cleanse...?
    hi! :)
    i just heard about this "lemonade diet" thing, and how it's supposed to cleanse your body of toxins so that you can better your eating habits...
    i was just wondering though, do you have to purchase special ingredients for the recipe? like, directly through the makers, or can you go to the grocery store and buy everything or something...?
    also, would it be all right for me to go on it?
    i'm seventeen years old...

  40. QUESTION:
    How do I do the master cleanse?
    So, my mom called to suggest It try the master cleanse diet. She had just heard about it from some people she works with. She was looking at it from a weight loss stand point (I have quite a bit to lose as do my husband and her), but I am also wanting to look at if from the "cleanse" stand point. I really messed up my weight once I moved down south (alot of driving and bad foods), and need to get myself back to normal. I have been wanting to cleanse myself so I can start my body basically as a clean slate. Anyways, I am finding the "recipes" on line, but not the guide line to follow.

    Do I really just drink the sea salt water for the first two days or do I do the sea salt water and the "lemonade"?

    Is it actually effective? Weight loss? Health?

    Once I finish the diet, from the weight loss stand point, is it easy to maintain and continue?

    How many days do I need to do this and how do I introduce foods back in without ruining my progress?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Recipe for the lemonade?

    Any other tips for the 10 day diet?

    • ANSWER:
      I am doing this now ... just posted a question in fact ... LOL

      It is very much recomended you get the book The Master Cleanser .. its not expensive ... it has the recipe and complete info .. however ... even if you don't get the book, you really need to research this well before starting!

      To answer your questions ... to make the salt water flush you use 2 teaspoons of sea salt (NON-iodinezed!!) mixed in 1 quart (32oz) of pure (distilled or purified) water.
      this MUST be taken on an empty stomach!

      A herbal laxative tea (I am using one called Smooth Move) is to be drunk every night (inc the night before you start)

      The lemonade/limeade is made with pure water (aprox 8oz) grade B organic maple syrup (2 tblsp) and fresh squeezed juice from either a lemon or a lime (2 tblsp) ... you need to drink 6-12 glasses of this per day.

      You also NEED to drink plenty of plain pure water while on this cleanse.

      Other tips?
      Make SURE you read up on this BEFORE you try it ...
      Make sure you are NEAR a bathroom after drinking the saltwater for at least an hr (time to go through you varies)
      And .. (yes its gross) if you do go on this diet ... IF you think you need to fart ... DON'T .. go to the bathroom ... promise ya .. you don't wanna forget this one!

Cleansing Diet Pills

Written By: admin - May• 03•12

There are many diet pills that claim to cleanse the colon from the body toxins. Some colon cleansing diet pills use false information and lies in their advertisement with the intentions to trick ignorant users. Due to the high demand, many manufacturers had created diet pills that use harmful and chemical substances to cut costs. These harmful substances can cause disease and possibly death if it is used in inappropriately. Therefore, it is best to perform research carefully before buying a diet pill. Below are a review of the diet pills that works for people who want to lose weight safely and effectively.

Unlike other diet pills, Colothin is a genuine colon cleansing supplement that can help to remove the harmful toxins from the body so that you can lose weight effectively. It is designed purposely to cleanse the body from toxins, waste and other chemicals that are a result of the food intake. The waste is responsible for causing the excessive fat in the body.

Psyillium Seed Husks
The main ingredient in Colothin is Psyillium seed husk. Psyllium seed husk is also known by other names including ispaghula and isabgol. It comes from a plant called Plantago ovate in India and Paskistan. They are insoluble and cannot be digested by the stomach. Since they are indigestible, they are used as a dietary supplement to improve the transit of solid material in the gut. Researchers have shown that Psyllium can help to lower the HDL cholesterol level in the body. It can also help to maintain the sugar level in the body and prevent diabetes.

Psyllium seed husk has a colon cleansing capability. By taking psyllium husk, you will be able to get rid of the waste and harmful substances from the body. The waste is responsible for the extra weight gain in the body. By flushing the waste away, the individual will lost a large amount of fat from his body and become lean. Colon cleansing also helps in a number of digestive disorder such as diarrhea, and constipation. It helps to regulate the intestinal so that you will produce softer stools.

Studies have shown that psyllium seed husk can lower the glucose and insulin level in the blood. It can also lower the LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol level in the patients.

The Psyillium seed husk will help you to lose weight by flushing away the colon in the stomach. Scientists has proven the Psyllium to be useful in reducing the appetite.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has anyone taken any of the Acai diet and cleansing pills that can elaborate about them?
    I see all the hype about them! However, with diet and exercise of course will taking any of these supplements help boost my weight loss faster? I see ads for the Natra Pure and Acai saying, "I lost 47lbs in 2 months!" I just want to know if anyone has used any of them and if they helped or not! I have done research but, would like to hear from someone that is not a vendor of the pills!

    • ANSWER:
      The acai berry diet pill "Free Trial" offers are a huge scam!! Do not give your personal information or credit card number to any site that sells acai berry diet pills or Free Trials! What they are really doing is selling you bogus products that aren't even endorsed by the celebrities that are mentioned in their ads.

      Please read the terms and conditions in the website. What they are really trying to do is bill your credit for or more a month, not give a free trial.

      Their free trial is bogus. If you want your money back, you have to return the bottle of pills unopened and pay the shipping. How can you tell if the pills are working if you can't even try them? If you do try them and don't return them unopened, you will be billed a month.
      It would normally take a few weeks to try a weight loss product to see if it's working. After a few weeks have passed, it is too late to get your money back and you will be auto billed every month. If you try to get your refunded through your credit card company they will treat you as a criminal according to their terms of service.

      There are also some fake review site that encourage you to buy 3 "free trials" at a time so they can bill you three times at once!

      If you look at all the acai pill websites, you will notice that all the pictures are fake as well as their "testimonials". Don't believe, them.

      Acai Berry Diet pill companies will only "burn" your wallet, not your weight.

      Never buy any product from the internet without carefully reading their Terms of Service or Privacy Policy.

      Also check complaintsboard.com, pissedconsumer.com and bbb.org to see if how many complaints have been made for these snake oil websites. If you have been ripped off and can't get your money back, write a letter to the attorney general in your state.

  4. QUESTION:
    Are the Acai and Colon Cleanse diet pills safe for teens?
    i'm just curious. I'm sorta interested in them, but i know my parents are going to want to know if they are safe.

    • ANSWER:
      LoL I wanted to know the EXACT same thing! I'm really un confident about how I look and I wanted to try diet pills like the Acai pills and my mom won't let me of course :P Btw I am a girl. I don't think it's really safe because I hear it can I guess damage your kidney or w/e (in WORST scenario) and +, it says 18+ NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN. So you and me are out of luck. Better to follow the instructions than to risk something bad am I right? :]

  5. QUESTION:
    PLEASE HELP ABOUT ACAI BERRY AND COLON CLEANSE DIET PILLS?
    PLEASE DOSE IT WORK??? ACAI BERRY N COLON CLEANSE DIET PILLS USED DAILY TOGETHER REALLY A QUICK, EFFECTIVE WAY TO LOOSE WEIGHT FAST??

    • ANSWER:
      No, it gives you diarrhoea.If you must try is buy at a local store, do not go for a a so called free trial offered online.
      It is far from free and people have had to cancel credit cards to stop payments being taken.
      Type in acai and scam

      Colon cleanse is totally unnecessary, it can cause vomiting, nausea and abdominal cramps. It can cause a dangerous loss of water and electrolytes, which can lead to dehydration and even abnormal heart rhythms. It can upset the body's own finely-tuned bacterial balance.

  6. QUESTION:
    what is the best diet cleanse(not the cleansing pills tho)???

    • ANSWER:
      Have you looked into Isagenix?

  7. QUESTION:
    what exactly are body cleansing pills that help with weight loss?
    ....or whatever?...

    i'm confused. how are those any better then the weight loss/diet pills?-- i mean those things don't work, so why would the cleansing pills be any different?.....

    i've never even heard of these things until a pop-up just poped up on my computer.... ?

    this world just gets more confusing every day haha

    • ANSWER:
      Diuretics and laxatives mostly. It's all marketing crap. Many diet pills also include some of those, but are mostly stimulants (caffeine, etc).

      Some people seem to think that junk from bad food and such accumulates in the colon and needs to be 'cleansed' to somehow aid weight loss. Short of a few medical conditions (which should not be treated by OTC laxatives..), I have never seen any real evidence backing that theory.

      Edit: no pill will 'cleanse' these supposed toxins from your body. Detox has no meaning outside of poisoning treatment. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/134385.php

  8. QUESTION:
    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about diet pills SlimQuick Cleanse & SlimQuick with Hoodia?
    Or what diet pills have worked the best for anyone? Any suggestions? Advice greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Whenever you are trying to lose weight, you should concentrate on these three things which all work together in providing a healthier and quicker weight loss goal for yourself. I have found this combination really successful in my weight loss plans. The first thing is exercising and how much you can put forth into it. The more you exercise, the more results you will see. The next thing is dieting and the calorie intake. If you exercise more, technically you could eat more? Always watch what you eat.

      Now the last step in a good weight loss plan is always a good diet pill that can help you get to the end of the road. I have found Proactol which is a natural herbal diet pill to be the best around. It's an appetite suppressant along with being a fat blocker which stops up to 28% of fat you eat. Read up about it at TheWeightLossPlace .com where I saved on it at the time. Proactol really works well with exercising which gives you plenty of energy to perform. Along with that your diet will be affected by Proactol due to the appetite suppressant and fat blocker. If you slip up on meals, the fat blocker kicks in. It's really great to stop food cravings.

      Concentrate on those three things and the combination is deadly for the fat cells in your body. Good luck and I hope this helps.

  9. QUESTION:
    what is the most affective colon cleansing pill or diet pill. im looking to lose about 25 pounds. do not tell?
    im looking to lose about 25 pounds. do not tell me to just exercise. im asking this question obviously because i have no time to. please no ignorant responses

    • ANSWER:
      First off diet pills don't work so I'll save you tons of time & money right there. Be aware that using colon cleansing can be dangerous to your health and shouldn't be used constantly but you probably already know that. I'm not sure of the time frame you have for this all but a few of the top ones are:
      Bowtrol, Oxy-Powder, Blessed Herbs, Colonix, and Dual Action Cleanse. You may have to hunt online for them, I'd actually recommend checking a pharmacy or walgreens first if you have the option. Also, certain teas and fiber can help you out too. Just remember to drink enough water throughout the day, you can lose a whole lot of fluid through bowel movements and not even realize it.

  12. QUESTION:
    Does any one know if acai berry diet pills work and diet cleanse?

    • ANSWER:
      Acai berries are fruit and contain some antioxidant properties, but only if they are grown in good fertile soils. The juice is basically water and sugar and very little nutrient value. All the hype started when a guy went on the Oprah show and said Acai berries could do miraculous things. Oprah has since sued the people for making all kinds of diet claims and other claims that simply were not true.

      Any diet cleanse should be done with the assistance of a trained Certified Nutritional Therapist that understands how the body works nutritionally. If you do cleansing without getting your cellular energy up, you can actually do some damage to the body instead of helping it. It is good to assist the body in cleansing. The body has a natural ability to cleanse and is part of keeping you healthy. In today's world of massive overload in toxins, it is almost a requirement to detoxify things like your kidneys, liver, colon, and mucus membranes to be more than functional and to achieve good health.

      Good luck to you

  19. QUESTION:
    When you take liver cleanse pills, do you also need to limit your diet to vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc?
    I currently purchased Enzymatic Therapy Complete Liver Cleanse. It is a 2 week program (you take 3 pills in the morning and 3 before bedtime). I know that I should not be consuming alcohol while taking the pills, but I am not sure if I should also be on a special diet. I am a vegetarian so I don't consume meat or dairy, but should I also stay away from soy products?

    • ANSWER:
      I know that the pamphlet that comes with that kit mentions a "clean" diet while you are taking the cleanse. Basically-lots & lots of water, low sugar, whole grains, lean protein(including greens & legumes if you don't eat meat), fruits & vegetables. The less processed the better. Generally speaking, unless you're eating edamame, soy is processed to make it into tofu or "meat" etc. So I would definitely limit if not completely eliminate the soy while you're doing the cleanse. Hope that helps!

    Acai berry and colon cleanse diet. How frequent do you take these pills and how much? They dont really specify?
    I have taken an interest in the Acai berry and colon cleanse diet. I recieved both bottles and they both say take two capsules a day but not whether I should take them together, or through out the day. The only really thing I know for certain is not at night! Now I work out 3 to 4 times a week and hoping this will help on my pursuit to a healthy life. Does anyone with some back ground in this have any ideas?

  28. QUESTION:
    Is there anyone out there that uses the Acai Berry 14day flush and cleanse dieting pills?
    I just bought the Acai Berry 14day flush and cleanse , and I want to know how it worked on you. How long did it take for you to feel like its working and how much weight did you lose after 14 days?

    • ANSWER:
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam. Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries or raspberries. A diet high in antioxidant foods can HELP you lose weight.
      Not just make you lose weight.
      That is the big lie these con artists are selling.
      The "cleanse" tablets that usually come with them probably contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. This can deplete healthy bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system. And you can buy a quart jar of it for at the grocery, not 60 tablets.
      Alli is the only over the counter weight loss pill approved by the FDA. There are only three prescription weight loss medications approved. Do you think that if any of them REALLY worked we would have a billion a year industry in "weight loss" supplements?
      The big three pharmaceuticals would dominate the market.
      Approved or otherwise, none of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program. See the website where you bought your products.
      ***So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?***
      You are spending somewhere between and per day on a product that is not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      Don't be surprised if some outrageous charges hit your debit/credit card if you buy online. Go to the terms and conditions at any "acai" web site. Most sites you sign up for an "auto ship" program and you will be sent more product at , or 0 per month! Some people have to cancel their credit or debit cards just to get the automatic payment stopped.
      That kind of money pays for a great gym membership.
      Good Luck.

  29. QUESTION:
    Does the acai berry cleanse diet pill actually work?

  30. QUESTION:
    Fusion 5 diet pills and colon cleanse?
    Now I know the results may not last long or this product may not even work, but I bought it and thought I'd give it a shot. I take one extreme fat burner pill in the morning and afternoon (2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon if I want to see dramatic results)... I also got a supply of their Colon Cleanse pills... does it matter when I take these pills (1 a day with Extreme Fat Burner)?

    • ANSWER:
      You are unlikely to see 'dramatic results'. Take them when you like. colon cleanse pills usually contain laxative/s so it might be wiser to take them at night.
      The only thing that burns fat is movement, exercise.

      "A study of the living human anatomy reveals that the colon is at no time dirty or clogged. Colon cleansing is known to disrupt the balance between natural enzymes and bacteria in the digestive tract."

  32. QUESTION:
    if i start on some diet pills and the master cleanse how much do you think i can lose?
    about a pound a day?

    • ANSWER:
      A lot, but you will soon gain it all back - and more.
      As the Master Cleanse gives prople diarrhoea you could be wasting the other (probably ineffective) product anyhow.

      In addition, prolonged fasting has many negative side effects, including all the symptoms that go along with malnutrition: insomnia, cravings, nausea, depressed mood, hair loss... the list goes on. Proponants of the Master Cleanse will tell you that these are signs that the toxins in your body are being eliminated, but you would experience the same symptoms on a water-only fast.

      Certain useful bacteria being destroyed. Dehydration is a common side effect of the master cleanse diet, as water content in the body is reduced. No new muscles are formed in the body as there is no intake of proteins or carbohydrates during the fast.Insomnia, nausea, depression and craving are other master cleanse dangers.

  36. QUESTION:
    How big are Slim Quick Cleanse pills?
    I've always had issues with swallowing pills. I've seen others taking diet pills and cleanse pills that are massive. Before buying Slim Quick Cleanse I wanted to try to find out how big they are so I don't waste the money and then end up unable to swallow them. Tried to find a picture online but had no luck..

    • ANSWER:
      I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

      Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

      First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...

      This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.

      However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

      Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

    Can the Master Cleanse Diet but used in Conjunction with Hoodia pills?
    Im am starting the Master Cleanse Diet today to cleanse my system of toxins in my body. I am a junk food snacker and need to know if I should incorporate Hoodia in my cleanse to help appetite suppression. Please only answer if you are serious and knowledgeable of the topic.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely not. The point of the Master Cleanse is to rid your body of toxins. You don't want to add anything else to it. As your body rids itself of all the junk in it, you will naturally lose your appetite. There is no need for an appetite suppressant.

  42. QUESTION:
    diet pills?
    i'm trying to lose 30-35 pounds as quickly as possible. what do we think about diet pills? Fasting? Cleanses? any good tips?

    • ANSWER:
      to be honest you can't lose 35 that fast...unless you are rich and can afford a good trainer. But the only to lose weight is to cut your intake of eating to 1/4, just drink water, and exercise. Also, you can go to a sauna but you will lose water weight BUT you will gain it back.

  43. QUESTION:
    Is Lean Spa diet pills and Lean Spa colon cleanse a gimmick or does results really show?

    • ANSWER:
      One of the great cons on the internet today!
      This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
      Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
      A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
      An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
      More calories burned can result in weight loss.
      Acai berries cause weight loss!
      That is the big "stretch" these con artists are selling.
      Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic".
      The "cleanse" pills that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. There is no such thing as a "fat burner ". Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
      None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
      So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
      The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.
      Spending the same to a day on this junk would pay for a great gym membership.
      The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
      A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.

  44. QUESTION:
    Do any diet pills work?
    I need to loose like 20 lbs in 7 weeks! Do any diet pills work? I lso heard that the pills that cleanse your body work really well, and that the green tea pills work too. Can anyone help???

    • ANSWER:
      The pills that cleanse your body don't work really well, and the green tea pills don't work, either. Seriously.

  45. QUESTION:
    How to actually use the acai diet pills?
    I own a bottle of the acai burn pills and I would like to know if there's anything else I have to do on the side to actaully lose the weight. Also, if use the colon cleanse and acai burn together will it really help me lose weight quicker then most things?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to use acai pills and colon cleanse products is as supplements to a healthy eating and exercise program. The way some of these products are marketed, you'd think they're the miracle cure for all obesity, but the truth is that while they can help you, they aren't magic pills. You can't expect to sit around all day eating pizza and ice cream and have a bottle of fruit pills make the weight disappear.

      However, what I will say is that using the two products together helped me to lose weight faster when I stuck with a healthy diet and exercised regularly. I've struggled with a slow metabolism my entire life, and I'd always lose a few pounds before hitting a huge plateau with diet and exercise alone. Adding the supplements to my daily regimen gave me more energy to exercise and helped me to burn more calories throughout the day.

      Hope this helps!

    Questions about a Cleansing Diet?
    I've never tried a cleansing. I've heard all those stories about having 5 feet of impacted fecal matter hardened in your intestines. I would like to try something to help eliminate all that. Now I don't think I could starve myself on just plain raw fruits and veggies. Ive read up on colon cleansing pills and what nots. Would it have the same effect if I just took fiber pills on a regular basis? Not to exceed what I should for them but just include them in my daily vitamin dose? Has anyone tried any of these ? If so how did they work for you and what did you do?

    • ANSWER:
      OxyPowder by Global Healing is the best

  47. QUESTION:
    what do i need for the cleansing/fasting diet?
    i know i need certain pills and vitamins and also fresh squeeze juice. what are the exact products i need and what can i expect to lose from this "diet"? will i need an extreme exercise routine while doing this cleansing period? any answers are appreciated. thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      lots of fruit, vegetables and water will make a good start, but don't forget to add a little protein in there. Exercise is always good, but you don't have to go to the extreme. Just set a nice, steady routine for yourself, but I wouldn't overdo it, especially at the beginning. Hope it helps, best wishes.

  48. QUESTION:
    How many acai pills and colon cleanse pills should i take?
    Need to loose 30lbs. Store told me most effective diet pill if controlled by diet and exercisee too.

      you don't need them just eat healthy and walk everyday

  49. QUESTION:
    Experience with Diet / energy pills?
    I've started eating a lot healthier in the passed few months and working out more but I'm not losing any weight right now. I'm looking for a healthy diet supplement that boosts energy but without bad side effects like jitters etc. I don't want "cleansing" pills that make you poo a lot or sweat a lot. Im trying to lose abt 20 pounds. Anybody have good ones to recommend from experience?? And what can you tell me abt it?

    • ANSWER:
      If you have gotten the jitters then I will assume you are sensitive to stimulants. In that case, go to GNC and find a supplement called Recreate. It is made by USPLabs. It is the same version of OxyElite Pro, same company, but without the stimulants. That is the best weight loss pill that will not have as many adverse effects.

Cleansing Diet Lemonade Drink

Written By: admin - May• 02•12

Remember the popular clichA that when life throws lemons at you, you make lemonades?

Well, if you want to detoxify your body and eventually lose some unwanted pounds, why don't you make lemonades and drink them as well?

The Lemonade Diet which is also known as the Master Cleanser Diet was conceptualized by Stanley Burroughs, a late naturopath (one who practices naturopathy which is, generally speaking about treatments that don't involve drugs) who authored a book entitled, aThe Master Cleansera. This diet is a cleansing juice diet that lasts up to 10 days. Those who want to observe the diet up to 40 days may consult first a physician.

This cleansing diet apparently concentrating on a nutritious and refreshing lemonade (perfect for those dieting during summer!) that is made up of non-fluoridated water, lemon juice (freshly-squeezed please, not from those canned drinks) and cayenne pepper. Add just enough maple syrup (Grade B) to sweeten. Now, one will just have to drink six to 12 glasses of lemonade daily.

Also to be taken:

  • salt-water flush (every morning)
  • any laxative tea (every night)
  • No solid foods whatever (since this one is basically a cleansing diet, one has to fast) and aside from purified water, one can only drink peppermint tea. It is advised that one should drink a glass of water between lemonade drinks to prevent one from being dehydrated.

    The Lemonade Diet will do certain wonders for the body like:

    • burn fats
    • remove toxins and other impurities from the body
    • improve the condition of the digestive tract
    • After 10 days of undergoing this cleansing juice diet, one should allow a full three months top pass before repeating it again. Also, one is one with the diet, he/she take citrus fruits for at least 36 hours then he/she has to consume vegetable soups for three to five days before resuming normal eating habits.

      For those who want to have a cool drink such as lemonade for a diet, then they could give the Lemonade Diet a chance. More pertinent health information about this is available at Diet Fads.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. QUESTION:
        Has anyone did the master cleanse diet, lemonade drink?
        I am wanting to try it..its the lemonade diet drink..I got the recipe off the internet..I heard it really worked..cleanses your body and you lose weight..you have to drink 6-12 glasses a day for 10 days...well they said there is certain foods you can actually eat with the diet but you had to buy the book to see the foods..most people dont eat anything for 10 days..so I was wondering if anyone did this diet, if they ate anything with it and if it worked?
        Thanks!

        • ANSWER:
          Of course you're going to lose weight.. you aren't eating anything. Don't buy into any detoxes or diet drinks.. all it's going to do is starve you. It won't "cleanse" you at all.. your body does that naturally. All the water weight that you DO lose from not eating, you're going to gain right back when you start eating again.

      3. QUESTION:
        With the Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet, can you drink the lemonade cold, or only hot?
        The Diet
        consists of fasting to rid the body of toxins,
        created by improper diet, lack of exercise and
        negative mental attitudes. The purpose of the
        Lemonade Diet is to dissolve and eliminate toxins
        and congestion; to cleanse the kidneys and
        digestive system; to purify glands; to eliminate
        waste and hardened materials in the joints and
        muscles; to build a healthy bloodstream; to
        maintain optimal blood pressure; and to what
        you all are waiting to hear... to lose weight.

        • ANSWER:
          It can be either but warm to hot is recommended because cold water can slow down the process.

      6. QUESTION:
        Does the Lemonade Cleansing Diet really work?
        I am an 18 year old female who just wants to lose about 6 pounds and I am thinking about going on the lemonade cleansing diet where you just drink lemon juice including cayenne peppers and grade B maple syrup. I know this is all you drink for about 10 days to get rid of unhealthy toxins in your body and it makes you lose weight instantly. I was just thinking about doing this cleansing diet for about 5 days. Is this healthy for an 18 year old to do? And will the 5 day cleansing process work? Thanks!

      7. QUESTION:
        a lemonade diet?
        i heard about this lemonade cleansing diet.

        you only drink lemonade for about a month and you loose weight.

        do you think its safe?
        im really considering it

        • ANSWER:
          well if you're lookin to lose weight I'm not sure if the lemonade diet is the right way. but if you want detox, then it is.

          The thing is, with this detox diet, about 70% the weight you lose is water weight, so you'll gain almost all back when you're done with the "diet".
          Well unless you've prepared an excellent exercise plan to do after the cleansing.

          Last year I felt like I ate too much junkfood so I did this cleansing thing for about a week and it was a TORTURE lol
          Believe me its hard to only drink lemonade when people around you are eating donuts and drinking frappucino xD
          When I did that I was on holiday so it was easier to just get in the kitchen and make the lemonade.
          But if you're working at the same time I don't know how you're gonna do it because you have to drink at least 11 glasses of lemonade per day, that's basically everytime you're hungry you drink it. So how can you go back and forth making lemonade while you're at work? lol and the 1st 3 days was so..yuck lol

          But this cleansing thing is safe tho, when I was finished with it I felt healthier :)
          My goal wasn't to lose weight tho so I don't know bout you but good luck anyway!! =D

      8. QUESTION:
        cleansing diet?
        i have been thinking of trying that cleansing diet thing where you only drink lemonade with like chile peper in it for like three days...does anyone have any good recieps for it or have tryed it? what do u think of it, do you loose weight or what ?

        • ANSWER:
          My friend and I both tried it. I didn't last 2 days. She did. She lost 9 lbs in 10 days and then gained back 12 lbs. She also felt like crap the whole time. Then we tried a nutritional cleansing and fat burning program and it worked great! She lost 12 lbs in 10 days and I lost 15 lbs in ten days. We went on to lose more weight and have kept it off for a while now. It is an easy program, especially compared to the master cleanse. More info at the links below. Email me if you have any questions.

      9. QUESTION:
        Can anyone tell me about this lemonade cleansing diet?
        I want to know if it has worked for anyone and what goes into this drink?

        • ANSWER:
          its called fasting. It cleanses your body and helps you to lose weight

          You put in Pure maple syrup not the fake stuff. Fresh squeezed lemon juic
          Caynne pepper
          and water

          and it isnt easy

          and the maple syrups isnt bad for you becuase it is all natural and it is natural sugar and natural calories so it is actully super healthy for your body

      10. QUESTION:
        Ok so I am starting the Master Cleanse/Lemonade diet, do i have to drink the salt water every morning too ?

        • ANSWER:
          The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
          You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight. It took me some time to figure it out but you will lose weight on this diet. The average adult American has eight meals in their digestive system. Five more than they should. By going on a deficit diet like this you can lose around 10 pounds just by not eating. But it is only the weight of the food in your digestive system.
          You may lose a pound of body fat but not necessarily. So it does work. but it does not change your SIZE. Once you start eating again you just replace all the missing food in the system. Pour the soda out of a bottle and the shape of the bottle doesn't change does it?
          The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
          The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism).
          Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
          When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxins.
          The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
          There is no build up of bad plaque, toxins, or sludge in a normal, reasonably healthy system.
          If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their small intestines couldn't absorb nutrients.
          The majority of the water from food and what we drink is reabsorbed through the colon, if our colons were clogged we would all be walking around looking like sponges right?
          Detoxing is ridding the system - liver, kidneys, and intestines of toxins both internal and environmental. Additionally, many toxins are stored in our fat cells so in order to truly "detox", you need to lose excess body fat as well to fully detox.Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
          The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
          We "cleanse and detox" naturally 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
          We can help by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
          Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
          Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
          A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
          Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
          Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
          Search "gut flora" to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
          We have more beneficial bacteria in our digestive systems than all the cells in our bodies!
          Did you know the digestive system is one of the largest contributors to our immune system?
          They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
          Spend your money in the produce department.
          Good luck.

      12. QUESTION:
        with the master cleanse/lemonade diet is that all you do is drink the lemonade-no eating?? for 10 days?

        • ANSWER:
          Basically yes.

          The lemonade is special recipe and you must also consume a laxative tea and do what is called a salt water flush. This helps your digestive system continue while you are not eating any solid foods.

          Personally I think it is a terrible way to diet. If you want to lose weight, strength training and cardio is the way to go and you can continue to eat.

      13. QUESTION:
        Does the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet really work?
        The cleanse involves drinking only lemonade made from fresh lemon or lime juice, maple syrup, water and Cayenne pepper.

        Does it make you flabbier?

        • ANSWER:
          It's no long term solution and has been linked to the deaths of a number of people. So there you have it, an ineffectual diet that occasionally kills people who try it, your choice!

      15. QUESTION:
        I am doing the master cleanse diet but how many times a day do I drink the lemonade ? ?
        I do the salt water flush in the morning and started the lemonade but do I only drink one or I drink multiple ones during the day ? Also, would it be bad to take ephedra pills along with the cleanse?

        • ANSWER:
          you should drink 8-12 8oz glasses of the lemonade a day. you didn't mention the herbal laxative tea, you should be drinking a cup before bed every night. I would not take the ephedra while on the cleanse.

      16. QUESTION:
        Are there any diets similar to the Master Cleanse (Lemonade Diet) that do the same thing?
        I am looking for a diet that will help me lose weight quickly, and I know the master cleanse diet will, but I don't think I can drink only that for 10+ days.

        Thanks!

        • ANSWER:
          A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk, heart disease and stroke risk, and have a more positive lifestyle!
          You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
          Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
          First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
          Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
          Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them.
          Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
          Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
          Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
          This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
          I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
          Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. If you are a woman, you may want a plus iron formula.
          Last, you HAVE to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
          You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
          You will get motivated when the changes start happening, I promise.
          Good luck.

      17. QUESTION:
        Will the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet decrease the effectiveness of my birth control pill?
        I take my birth control pill every night at 8pm, and I want to do the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet for 7 days, but I don't want to worry about pregnancy. I know that I need to drink a cup of herbal laxative tea each morning and at night, and I don't want it to interfere with the pill. Please answer if you know. :)

        • ANSWER:
          I am not on the pill but I use the NuvaRing and it was fine. I did the Master Cleanse for 10 days (4/4/10 - 4/14/10) and I stayed sexual active and everything was fine. If you have read the book "Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days" there is a section that actually talks about birth control and with the women who have done the cleanse, it hasn't had an affect on the birth control.

          And by the way, you are supposed to drink the laxative tea at night and do the salt water flush in the morning but if you are not able to do the salt water flush that morning then you are suggested to drink another laxative tea.

      18. QUESTION:
        Would it completely ruin the Master Cleanse/lemonade diet if i added another juice?
        I have been on the master cleanse for 2 days and i feel fine with the diet. I am not craving food, but I feel like I need something with some actual taste since Im so tired of the spicy lemon flavor. Would it be sooo bad if I just drink 1-2 cups of orange or cranberry juice a day along with the lemonade? It's not like I'm eating something..

        • ANSWER:
          why not switch the lemon for orange for the drink? drinking more fluids wouldn't hurt.

        I'm pregnant can I drink the Master Cleanse Lemonade?
        I'm currently 3 and half months pregnant. I'm craving the lemonade from the Master Cleanse Diet. But I by no means intend to start the diet. I just like the taste of the lemonade. Is it safe for me to drink?

        • ANSWER:
          Lets see...the ingredients are

          Lemon juice (good)
          Maple syrup (bad)
          Cayenne pepper (not bad but probably best not to ingest regularly)

          I would say its an ok drink for every once in a while, but save it for when you're REALLY craving it. Right now its best to drink lots of milk, water, and juices with no added sugar.

        Cleansing Diet: PROMISED BEST ANSWER?
        Hey,

        Does anyone know of a cleansing diet that doesn't make you drink that lemonade mix. I still want to lose weight but I don't want to have to drink the Master Cleanse (Lemonade) everyday. I've heard of eating fruits vegetables and water, but I don't know which fruits and veggies I need to eat!

        I promise to give a best answer as soon as possible.

        Thanks,
        Josh
        Oh yeah, and will this lower or raise my metabolism

        • ANSWER:
          Raw fruits and vegetables contain more fiber than cooked ones. The most beneficial fruits are the acid fruits, such as lemons, oranges and grapefruit. Other ideal fruits include tomatoes and pineapples. Another good way to detoxify is by taking lemon and honey.

      22. QUESTION:
        Does anyone know why you aren't allowed to drink tea with caffeine while on the master cleanse/lemonade diet?
        I've been wanting to do this for a while so i started it a few days ago, and i feel great but sometimes i just need a lil something else, and i read that you can have a cup of herbal tea, but it said decaffeinated. My favorite tea i keep at home has a lil bit of caffeine do you think it will affect my cleanse??

        And please people, no negative or rude responses. If you don't have a valid thought or suggestion don't bother replying...please.

        Anyway, anyone who has some more info i'd apprecaite it :)

        • ANSWER:
          Caffeine drinks don't count in your total intake of liquids, I think. My urologist said I had to drink 64 oz a day of decaffeinated drinks a day to keep kidneys flushed.

      23. QUESTION:
        Can I incorporate a salt-water flush and the Master Cleanse drink into my normal diet?
        I'm on day 1 of the master cleanse now, and I'm wondering if I can make the Salt Water Flush and the MC lemonade as part of my regular diet? Perhaps not doing the SWF every morning, but a few times a week? And perhaps drinking the MC lemonade a few times a day? Or would regular lemon-water be a better option for everyday?

        • ANSWER:
          No,
          the salt water flush is there to eliminate toxins DURING the cleanse - help the movement of intestines in absence of solid food, which would normally enable elimination.

          If you have a healthy balanced diet (especially rich in fibre), there is no need for you to resort to induced bowel movements. It would actually be a dangerous thing to do. Think of it as laxative abuse. Not only will you flush out all the essential nutrients from your body, you will also most likely irreversibly damage your body's ability to absorb them , but also you will become dependent on the flush to have a bowel movement. So you'd risk many problems arising if you decide to do that (digestive, malnutrition, bowel problems and even some types of cancer)
          So you can only make yourself ill by practicing this + it will be for nothing because of course it won't have the same effect as detoxing, because you need to immobilize the toxins (lemonade) but without taking any in (normal diet) i.e. it needs to be lemonade fast (basically the Master Cleanse only, for at least 10 days) So it is truly counter productive.

          As to the lemonade - again, it won't have the same effect. You could incorporate it to some extend.
          I have done this: Have a glass of lukewarm water with lemon and cayenne pepper first thing in the morning. Skip the maple as you don't need it - in the cleanse it serves as a source of energy, but you'll get energy from your normal diet. So yeh, you can drink that to get your digestive juices flowing and get your stomach ready for some food.

          If you want to detoxify, you could perhaps repeat the cleanse every 3-4 months. Remember that the Master Cleanse is a specially designed plan - all ingredients have a purpose and are combined in a way to bring you benefits and avoid harm.
          + if you did incorporate it into your diet and you were to do the cleanse again, it would not work as your body would have gotten used to it.

          Just enjoy the benefits of the cleanse now and after you finish it, make a lifestyle change and eat as healthy as possible (that's one of the outcomes of the cleanse anyway btw - you should crave the stuff that is good for you n not the junk)
          Your system will be refreshed and so will your energy levels - you will naturally eliminate more efficiently so you shouldn't need any help from external sources other than healthy diet.

          Oh and don't forget to break the fast right.

          It is a 10 days diet and you are only allowed to drink the lemonade for the whole 10 days. Many people have succeeded and feeling refreshed, cleansed but there are also people who failed in the master cleanse and does not derive any health benefit from it.

        • ANSWER:
          One part of the lemonade diet is to rid your body of toxins, so the laxative is to help along with the riding your body of toxins part, so essentially you will poop alot on this diet so make sure you are close to a bathroom when you start this diet. I really wouldnt call it a diet, more so, its a once in awhile cleanse.

Also I heard Im suppose to drink some sort of tea on the diet. I would like only responses of people who have been on/ tried the diet, not any negative responses please.
        Thank You

        • ANSWER:
          The Lemonade Diet is a short-term, cleansing diet that is similar to a juice fast in many ways. While you are following the diet (10 to 40 days), your sole source of energy and nutrients is a lemonade made with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, purified (non-fluoridated) water, grade-B maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. In addition, each morning, you drink a salt-water flush, and each evening you drink a laxative tea. The only other beverages allowed on the Lemonade Diet are pure (non-fluoridated) water and peppermint tea.
          There is a strict regimen for ending the diet, beginning with fresh-squeezed citrus juices for approximately 36 hours, and then gradually moving to raw vegetables and fruits or to cooked vegetable soups over the course of three to five days after ending the regime.

      29. QUESTION:
        Lemon Diet/Master Cleanse: Is it safe? Does it work? Any cons?
        I'd like to detox, and have been told about the lemon Diet/Master Cleanse (drinking lemonade made from lemons, maple syrup, water and cayenne pepper). Not eating anything for 10 days (minimum) scares me a little! Is it nutritionally sound? Can it be damaging or dangerous? Has anyone DONE it? I'm looking for both positive and negative reviews.

        • ANSWER:
          my dad and sister recently did this and it was great for them. they got rid of all they crap in their bodies and felt so much better! they lost about ten pounds. my dad gained it back because he didnt want to lose any weight (he used more syrup to gain less weight) but my sister kept it off. it has great results and pros in all areas of life. my dad said a con was that he was tired from not being able to drink coffee. so if you are a regular caffeine drinker, i suggest slowly taking in less in the few days leading up to when you plan on beginning the cleanse. they say that they plan on doing it again. by the way, they planned on doing ten days but ended up doing 11. try reading a couple books on it, thats what they did and it really helped them make a decision and specialize the cleanse to their bodies. i highly recommend reading books on it, they have TONS of information and stories from people who have done it. good luck!

        thank you

        • ANSWER:
          I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

          Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

          First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...

          This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.

          However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace. com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

          Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

          So, take fruit for break time, try cutting down on bread, potatoes & pasta, dont drink any fizzy stuff (it confuses your brain into thinking you are hungry) & walk whenever you can.

          Do this & you will lose more weight & you wont even really notice that you are doing it.

        The Master Cleanse Recipe - How To Make The Lemonade

        Here's the recipe for making the Master Cleanse lemonade:

        * 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice

        * 2 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup

        * 1/10 Teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

        * 10 oz of filtered water

        That recipe is for a single serving of lemonade, and you should drink 6-12 servings a day.

        Salt Water Flush Recipe

        You would need to prepare a teaspoon of organic sea salt (not iodized salt) with 25 – 35 oz of warm water. Mix well and do your best to drink the solution in one go. If it is difficult to drink, use normal temperature water then.

        It is best to drink the salt water flush before drinking the lemonade in the morning as it is more effective with empty stomach.

          It works.

          And it is proven.

          Just ask Beyonce or Robin Bivens.

          I have done it myself and so have several of my friends. Sure there are precautions as with any diet but this one has been around since 1947 and it was originally written by a doctor. Buy the paperback book (its a short read) by Dr Stanley Burroughs to get your facts straight and DO EXACTLY as he prescribes. The only other written version I would recommend is a very current book by Peter Glickman called "Lose Weight, Have More Energy, & Be Happier in 10 Days" and it is predominately testiomonials regarding this detox system. Honest testimonials - both pro and con - from people who agreed to have their comments published.

          As for the naysayers... This is a liquid diet (as well as a detox / cleanse) and ALL reputable "fat farms" (aka weight loss centers / resorts) use liquid diets or dieting as part of their regimen. When done correctly, it is a wonderful tool for a healthy body and mind.

          Much success to you my friend!

        Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet help?
        I've been on the Master Cleanse for 6 days and I've lost 9 lbs. However I made a mistake in reading the instructions. Instead of drinking the lemonade at least 6 times a day, I've only been drinking it once a day. It is quite hard to drink 6 because I'm in school for 8 hours and I get very full after one lemonade. I take a senna pill laxative every morning and night. I excrete about once a day but it's usually very little and it is wet. Should I drink more lemonade to lose more weight?

        • ANSWER:
          The lemon detox or master cleanse/starvation diet you are referring to is a calorie deficit program.
          You will lose a few pounds but when you start eating again you will probably gain more weight.
          The signal these starvation diets send the body is that there is no more food available.
          The body immediately stores any fat it can and begins to burn muscle mass for fuel instead of the stored fat (metabolism). Stored fat will be used as a last resort when needed.
          When you start eating again the body immediately stores any food as fat because it doesn't know when the next famine is coming. You really don't detox since a substantial portion of the toxins in the body are stored in fat cells. So if you don't lose the fat, you don't lose the toxin.
          The complete opposite of what you are trying to accomplish.
          Cleansing and detoxing have absolutely no medical benefit and are in fact harmful to the digestive tract.
          There is no build up of bad plaque or sludge in a normal system. If this was the case we would have people dying left and right from malnutrition since their bodies couldn't absorb nutrients.
          Since we reabsorb most of the water in our food and drink through the large intestine, If it was coated with toxic plaque we would all be sloshing around like sponges yes?
          Our liver and kidneys aren't clogged with toxins. Otherwise we would be dead.
          The liver does in fact get layered with fat when we become overweight.
          We "cleanse and detox" 24 hours a day through respiration, sweat, liver, and kidneys.
          Cleanses actually flush out the beneficial bacteria and enzymes in the digestive system.
          Search gut flora to learn about the beneficial bacteria we need in our colon.
          They don't tell you about the gas, cramping, and bloating you will experience when you start eating again and the body has to rebuild this bacteria population.
          We can help detox by eating a healthy diet with minimal added sugar and salt. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, beans, peas, and brown rice keep a system as healthy as it can be.
          Minimal alcohol, caffeine, soda.
          Read food labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't put it in your body.
          A healthy high fiber diet works every time.
          Increases the speed and efficiency of the digestive system and helps the body rid itself of both internal and environmental toxins.
          Good luck.

          I don't think so, according the cleanse you are not supposed to eat anything, only drink the lemonade and to do the whole cleanse you also drink a laxative tea at night before bed and salt water first thing in the morning.
          I am currently on the fast this is my second full day. It is doing it's job of cleaning me out..lol tmi I know. I have no hunger pangs and the lemonade doesn't taste bad. I am doing this to detox and clean my system, if i lose weight too great an added bonus.
          I have done a lot of reading about it and also talk to a couple of women who have done it and had great results. They does this at least once a year sometimes twice.

      40. QUESTION:
        POLL: Master Cleanse diet AKA Lemonade Diet?
        Has anyone tried it?
        For how long?
        How much weight did you lose.

        For those of you that don't know the lemonade diet is basically drinking fresh squeezed lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper...NOTHING else..NO FOOD... for the minimum of 10 days and a max of 45 days. People that went the whole 45 days reported feeling energized and losing about 30 pounds.

        Have you done it?

        • ANSWER:
          Fad diets, starvation diets, fasting, gimmicky weight loss devices, and diet pills do not work. Any diet that is temporary will only produce results that are temporary at best.

          Losing fat any faster than about 4 lbs a week is impossible. Any additional weight you might lose would either be water weight, or your muscle atrophying.

          The only way to lose fat is a complete lifestyle change where you stop doing what made you obese in the first place and adopt healthy eating and exercise habits for the rest of your life.

          Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

        • ANSWER:
          You do not have to drink a herbal laxative tea OR mint tea and do the salt water flush although it is STRONGLY recommended. The salt water flush is a full quart of luke-warm water and two level (rounded for the Canadian quart) teaspoons of sea salt. Do not use ordinary iodized salt as it will not work properly. The Salt flush should be done every morning. The tea should be done the last thing at night and the first thing in the morning.

        master cleanse aka lemonade diet directions?
        how do i do the whole 10 day cleanse, including the sea salt, the lemonade, how much should i drink per a day? what is the recipe.. help me please?

        • ANSWER:
          That is just so unhealthy. I thought about doing it and my dietician very seriously warned me against it. Your metabolism will stop dead in its tracks, you'll feel sluggish and tired ... just not good. You can get a lot of benefits of lemon by squeezing lemon into your water every day, and if you're doing it to lose weight, why don't you try eating whole foods and getting regular exercise? That is the only way to achieve lasting results.

      48. QUESTION:
        Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet herbal tea question?
        I am starting the Master Cleanse detox diet and have decided against the salt water flush you are supposed to take in the mornings. I am going to drink the laxative herbal tea at night, but should i also drink it in the mornings to make up for not drinking the salt water mixture?

        • ANSWER:
          See site below to see that made a great decison with the SWF. It is good to avoid single white females. Just kidding. Avoid the salt water flush. You do not need to take the tea in the morning. Your body knows what to do. Site below has quotes from 18 MDs about fasitng and lemonade diet where Beyonce lost 20 punds in 10 days!

      49. QUESTION:
        Master Cleanse (Lemonade Diet)?
        I'm gonna start doing the master cleanse but before i start i wanna ask some question.

        1. Can i drink a lot of water while doing the cleanse, In the book it says that i should drink 8 glasses of lemonade since i obese but it doesn't say nothing about drinking a lot of water.
        2. Can i take some medical pills like somas during the cleanse (soma- pain killer).
        3. Do i have to do the salt water too, or can i just drink the laxative tea day and night. I hate the salt water bath:DD
        4. Can i add more Cayenne pepper? if i do will it help me more?
        5. Can i use lime, willi get the same result?
        I'll be really happy if u guys well help me answer this question.

        • ANSWER:
          1. NO, you shouldn't drink 8 glasses of lemonade, because lemonade has sugar in it, so that cuts the actual WATER you are drinking in HALF.
          2. NO, medications take the whole point of a "cleanse" and throw it in the trash.
          3. A salt H2O bath doesn't do ANYTHING except destroy the top layer of your skin. It is a hypertonic solution, causing the skin cells on the surface to lose all their H2O thru facilitated diffusion (in an attempt to balance sodium content on both sides)

          All "cleanses" are complete BS. They don't do anything except remove all the current liquid in your body, which you then have to replace.
          (gee what good does that do???)
          All sorts of things can result, like skin injuries, diarreah, constipation, nausea, vomiting, headaches, etc.
          None of the spices (ie cayenne pepper) have been proven in studies to do ANYTHING related to weight loss.
          If you lose ANY weight from this, it will simply be the WATER you lost thru diarreah, vomiting, peeing or bathing in salt water. SURFACE water, that will be put back into your cells within 3 days.
          DON'T BOTHER.

      50. QUESTION:
        Question about the Master Cleanse Diet (Lemonade Diet)?
        If your doing the master cleanse diet.

        2 tbsp lemon juice
        2 tbsp genuine maple syrup
        1/10 tbsp cayenne pepper
        mixed with 8oz of water
        drink 6-10 glasses for 10 days

        Can you drink additional water?

        Can you still do cardio and weight training normal or will you feel tired?

        Thanks

        • ANSWER:
          Yes, it's actually recommended that you do drink more water during the day.

          I think you should try to work out a little bit, but if you start to feel weak, tired, or dizzy, then you should stop.
          Good luck!


    Cleansing Diet Lemonade Diet

    Written By: admin - May• 01•12

    Have you heard of the highly effective diet product that is made as a form of lemonade? While not exactly your Grandmother's version of lemonade, it is made with lemons. That is where the familiarity ends. The diet form of lemonade is made to provide all the essential nutrients that the body needs for a period of about ten days. Ten days is, for the most part, the period of time needed for this diet to clean the "gunk" out of your body and give it a restart from whence a significant loss of weight is highly probable. Sound like fun? You'd better have some excellent discipline if you want to explore this diet and have success.

    One of the biggest and most common problems with diets is that of metabolism. If the metabolism is fired up, the calories are burned and the fat inside the tissues is reduced. If the metabolism is very slow and lethargic, the fat deposits will continue to build up and weight will be gained over and over again.

    One of the biggest and most common problems with metabolism is that of "plaque." You see, when the intestines are coated with plaque and the body is inundated with toxins, the metabolism is automatically slowed down and weight loss, while possible, is very difficult to attain.

    Thus, the lemonade diet. The diet is really a fasting diet that is designed to give the body a break from the continuous assault by junk food, inappropriate sugars and other toxins that enter the body in various ways. While preventing these common toxins from entering the body, the body itself actually expunges itself of these built up toxins and allows a rebirth of sorts in which many of the desires and tastes, accumulated through the years, are replaced with more natural cravings and the dieting person is able to easily form newer, more healthy nutritional habits. The lemonade diet is, as we've said, a fast, with the lemonade part being the only allowed intake of nutrition for a ten day period.
    During this ten day period on the lemonade diet, the dieting person is taken from feelings of extreme starvation to symptoms such as headaches, nausea, stomach aches and extreme fatigue. The end result though is a person who has rid their body of toxins and feels like a million bucks, literally. They no longer crave the sweets or junk foods that caused their weight loss in the first place. Their natural cravings take over and they usually find themselves eating more wholesome and healthy foods like vegetables, fruits and low-fat dishes. Their energy level is accelerated to a point where exercise is more of a pleasure than a redundant and dreaded routine. Many people who complete the lemonade diet successfully say that they actually look forward to exercising.

    The diet, while not debilitating in any way, is not loaded with low carbs, low fats or any other type of food. As a matter of fact there is no food involved at all, other than the lemonade concoction that you can make yourself or order online. You can expect to feel lousy before you feel like you've been reborn but, for most lemonade diet users, it is well worth the short ten days of suffering.

    The average weight loss for the ten day fasting period is around a pound per day but the weight loss usually continues after the ten day fast as the metabolism is kicked up several notches and the added energy level continues to burn calories as the person becomes more active and changes their unhealthy diet for one that enhances the weight loss effect.

    So, what are the ingredients of the lemonade diet? There are some slight variations that have evolved over the last several years but for the most part, the lemonade has remained the same mixture of lemons or limes, pure maple syrup, cayenne pepper and filtered water. It doesn't sound like much but the nutritive value found in these products is certainly enough to not only keep you alive but provide just enough nutrition that your body can actually revive itself.

    The lemonade diet is not for everyone. As a matter-of-fact most people fail at it the first or second time they attempt it. It is a difficult task but well worth it in the end. The lemonade diet attempts usually prove more successful after the second or third time through. A failure to complete the fast during the first or second attempt is considered quite normal. Many people do have success during their third or fourth time through. It is not considered a failure, by afficianodos of the lemonade diet, if the novice lemonade dieter does not complete the fast. All who attempt the lemonade diet recognize the difficulty in going for ten days eating or drinking nothing but the lemonade concoction and water. It is tough.

    If you feel like you are up to it or would like to start on a lemonade diet, you should simply run an online search for "lemonade diet," then make your lemonade and follow the instructions. The best advice is to go as far as you can in the fast and if you simply cannot complete the ten day fast, try it again in a couple of weeks. Once you are successful in completing the entire ten day fast and lemonade diet, you will be glad you did and your life will change for the better.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. QUESTION:
      Are these things OK to eat while doing a "lemonade' cleansing diet?????
      I'm going to make that Cleansing Lemonade Diet, sometimes known as the Beyonce Diet or Master Cleanseing diet (water, lemon juice, pure maple syrup, cyenne pepper) and wanted to do that for 5 days... but theres no way I can stand to not eat SOMETHING.... I dont think thats safe either.

      Would this be ok to eat with it or would it make the lemonade cleansing pointless with this food????

      Breakfast: 1 Whole grain piece of bread and 2 tablespoons peanutbutter

      Lunch: Raw Veggies and low sodium V8 or V8 Fusion juice.

      Snack: 3 Whole grain wasa crackers or 5 whole grain melba toast crackers

      Dinner: (this is when I'm at home and can actually cook something or pick up something)

      Options:

      1) Soy "chicken' patty/nuggets and a baked sweet potato
      2) Egg Beaters (egg white) and slice of whole grain toast
      3) Steamed dumplings and egg drop soup from Chinese place

      I will work out after it "settles"

      • ANSWER:
        Yeah that sounds ok. It will still be a great cleanse for you even if you eat with it. I've done the Master cleanse, and juice fasting, many times, and also partial fasts like this one,and I always get great results. One thing I would suggest though, is while you are doing this, keep your meals as much as possible on fruits and veggie salads and shakes because the raw food is also very cleansing and will help flush out your intestine, which is what you want. Try some protein shakes, with berries and fruit, and protein which will fill you up but still be semi-liquid, which will also help your cleanse
        Another suggestion....you are not going to feel very energetic on this cleanse. You will have periods of weakness and fatigue, and it's very important to respect that and just rest and skip your workout or just do a short walk, nothing strenuous, while you are cleansing. It will give your body time to cleanse. I find that when I'm fasting, sometimes I can do a cardio workout, and sometimes not. i just go with whatever feels right at the time. If you try to run when you aren't feeling up to it, it can make your stomach upset and make you more tired. Also I find I cannot do strength training when I'm on a cleanse. I just don't have the energy. Just something to keep in mind. Go with how your body feels.
        Also...when I feel tired and weak, I drink some herbal tea, like peppermint or green tea, it gives me a bit of energy and helps me feel better.
        good luck! i wish you the best! Remember you will feel awesome AFTER the cleanse.

    5. QUESTION:
      Is it better to start the lemonade cleanse diet right after a normal diet, or slowly proceeding into it?
      I'm planning on starting the lemonade cleanse diet again (and make it last for more than four days this time!)
      & I was wondering, I've been eating a lot recently.

      Is it better to do like a water fast or a vegetable fast for two or three days, and then start the lemonade cleanse diet?

      or is it okay to just jump right into the lemonade diet ?
      personal opinions?

      • ANSWER:
        I wouldn't advice you to do any water fast or veggie fasting weight loss before you start out your lemonade cleanse diet. What i'm worried most is you are not getting enough nutrients and your poor gastric might not be able to take it.

        It would be much better if you start to consume a low fat diet ,cut down the intake of processed food e.g sausages and proceed to the lemonade diet right after. As far as most dieters are concerned,this diet plan will assist their body to expel the toxins ( it is known that such toxins in our bodies are the key factors for making us overweight)

    6. QUESTION:
      does the lemonade cleansing diet really work?
      if it does i really will do it! im determined to! i will even exercise! will exercise make it go faster?

      • ANSWER:
        OF COURSE NOT. i do not see how it could seeing as it is just sugar and acidic lemons. stick to excersing and lay off junk.

    7. QUESTION:
      Can anyone tell me about this lemonade cleansing diet?
      I want to know if it has worked for anyone and what goes into this drink?

      • ANSWER:
        its called fasting. It cleanses your body and helps you to lose weight

        You put in Pure maple syrup not the fake stuff. Fresh squeezed lemon juic
        Caynne pepper
        and water

        you lose wight fast and get the toxins out of your body

        it is a god diet but i would only do it for about a week.

        and it isnt easy

        and the maple syrups isnt bad for you becuase it is all natural and it is natural sugar and natural calories so it is actully super healthy for your body

    8. QUESTION:
      Master cleansing diet age limit?
      Does anyone know the age limit for the master cleansing diet/lemonade diet?
      Also, if anyone has any suggestions, reviews, or thoughts on the diet I would love to hear them :)

      Thanks in advance!

      • ANSWER:
        It definitely depends on your body type (size, height, weight) but I would say about 16 is the youngest. However, most health care professionals and GP's will say 18 years old. This is because almost everyone has not yet fully grown and developed until they are around that age. The important parts of you are at their peak of developing, especially your bones and your brain.
        I reccommend you see your doctor and also someone at a health shop before doing the master cleanse, because even though you can lose weight there are many side effects and precautions you need to be aware of. Good luck though.

    9. QUESTION:
      Starting the master cleanse diet/lemonade diet?
      I'm starting the master cleanse(aka...lemonade diet) diet next week. So, I wanted to know how many of you have been on the diet? How effective(or ineffective) does it work? So far I've reviewed only good reviews and about two bad reviews. I just want more reviews and suggestion/opinions/encouragement.

      • ANSWER:
        Look I for one can tell tell it the lemonade diet does work. It may not work as well for eeyone, but you will most definitely see a difference. How do i know this? My co-worker started it this weekend and when she cam ein work yeterday, i immideately saw the difference and i did not know she was on the diet, only after she told me. you are suppose to loose at least 2lbs a day, a may sound unbelieveable but the only way you would know is if you try it. Good luck, it does work and she said she feels alot better :P

    10. QUESTION:
      When on the Master Cleanse/lemonade diet, how do you cope with being at work (ie 8-5 job)?
      I mean obviously its a cleansing diet...do you just go to the bathroom all day?

      • ANSWER:
        When I was doing the master cleanse I went to the bathroom about 2-4 times but only to pee.
        You only really poo in the begining of the day when you do the saltwater flush and at night when you do the laxative tea.

    11. QUESTION:
      Are there any diets similar to the Master Cleanse (Lemonade Diet) that do the same thing?
      I am looking for a diet that will help me lose weight quickly, and I know the master cleanse diet will, but I don't think I can drink only that for 10+ days.

      Thanks!

      • ANSWER:
        A good healthy diet high in fiber, lean meats, eggs, complex carbohydrates, whole grains, antioxidant foods, healthy beverages and low in added sugar and salt help people lose weight, gain weight, lower cholesterol, increase energy, improve brain function, lower blood pressure, reduce cancer risk, heart disease and stroke risk, and have a more positive lifestyle!
        You need to eat a lot more food and a lot more fiber!
        Diets that exclude foods from any food group are fad diets and do not lead to permanent weight loss or solve any other health issues.
        First, try to kick your fiber intake to 40 grams of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
        Whatever you do, get your fiber from your food, not from a jar.
        Fruits and vegetables have good fiber in them.
        Try a breakfast cereal with at least 20% of recommended daily allowance of fiber in it. They are usually low in sugar so there is a double benefit. Blueberries or raspberries on top add more fiber and antioxidants. But fresh or frozen, not the kind in syrup.
        Raw nuts are a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Avocados are the best.
        Lots of beans, peas, and grains are high fiber. Whole grain breads. Fiber kicks up the metabolism so you actually burn more calories. These foods will give you more gas in the beginning but if eaten daily, the bacteria in the digestive tract will elevate lowering the gas output.
        This will get you on the path for a healthy daily bowel movement. This helps clean the system and aids healthy digestion.
        I know it goes against everything you've heard but eating lots of the right foods will actually help you lose weight!
        Next, take a basic daily multivitamin. Don't look at your multivitamin as nutrition but more as an insurance policy. Think of it as filling in the gaps in your daily diet as opposed to a primary source of nutrients. If you are a woman, you may want a plus iron formula.
        Last, you HAVE to drink lots of water to be healthy. But you can disguise it. Fill your glass all the way full with ice before pouring low sugar beverages. Try iced green tea with a splash of orange juice in it for sweet. More antioxidants. Add lemon juice to water for flavor. Slice up a cucumber and float it in pitcher of water. Gives it salty fresh taste. But you must drink up to 100 oz of water daily to help your body get rid of waste and the toxins it contains.
        You must combine a healthy diet with exercise to multiply the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30 minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
        You will get motivated when the changes start happening, I promise.
        Good luck.

      I'm a 13 year old wanting to go on the Master Cleanse diet (lemonade diet) is it safe?

    13. QUESTION:
      what is the lemonade cleansing diet and how does it work?
      what is the recipe?

      • ANSWER:

    14. QUESTION:
      Has any one done the Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet?
      If so how do you preparer it and what else can you eat while your in these diet???

      The lemonade diet recipe detail is here:
      • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon.
      • 2 tablespoons of grade B Maple Syrup.
      • Add cayenne pepper according to your preference
      • A glass of pure water.

      • ANSWER:
        I did the master cleanse diet for 7 days. First I suggest you get the book "The Master Cleanse" by Stanley Burroughs. It's very cheap on Amazon or half.com,especially if you buy it used.

        The book contains all the reasons for being on this diet, how to make the drink, and (very important) how to break the fast when you go back to solid food.

        You will have to listen to your body and decide how closely to follow Burrough's suggestions. He recommends eating NO food at all during this fast. Instead drink 6 to 12 glasses of the lemonade each day, and most likely you will not feel hunger at all.

        Combine 2 tbsp of fresh lemon (I was a fanatic & added lemon pulp from the lemon) with the other ingredeints you mentioned. The water should be warm (Burroughs calls it medium hot). Cayenne can be up to 1/10 of a tspn. I used even less.

        For the 7 days I was on the cleanse, I felt fine and didn't get hungry. If you don't want to fast competely, my suggestion is to stick to raw veggies & fruit. Keep bacon cheeseburgers to a minimum =)

        There are critics of the Master Cleanse diet. The cleanse was great for me, but you can see the critics in the 2nd link below.

    15. QUESTION:
      Has anyone tried the Master Cleanse Diet/Lemonade diet?
      If you have tried it yourself does it work? how long did you do it for? how many pounds did you lose. and did you work out? Im planning on starting tomorrow along with working out for at least 1 hour.

      • ANSWER:
        The body is self cleansing
        The colon is self cleansing.
        It gives diarrhoea, you lose fluids and electrolytes. It also upsets the delicate balance of beneficial flora in the gut.
        Better to change to sensible eating habits and do any exercise you enjoy whether it be walking, cycling, skating aso.
        No boring 'must' for an hour.

    16. QUESTION:
      Does the Lemonade Cleansing Diet really work?
      I am an 18 year old female who just wants to lose about 6 pounds and I am thinking about going on the lemonade cleansing diet where you just drink lemon juice including cayenne peppers and grade B maple syrup. I know this is all you drink for about 10 days to get rid of unhealthy toxins in your body and it makes you lose weight instantly. I was just thinking about doing this cleansing diet for about 5 days. Is this healthy for an 18 year old to do? And will the 5 day cleansing process work? Thanks!

    17. QUESTION:
      how old do you have to be to do the Master Cleanse Diet (lemonade diet)?
      How old should you be to do this diet ? Also , what are the health risks ?
      Thanks =)

      • ANSWER:
        It's not about how old you are, but how stupid you are to believe that cleansing diets aren't gimmicks used to sell column inches in magazines and websites.

        The health risk is that you'll become stupider from believing cleansing diets actually do anything or make any sense.

        If you feel your body needs cleansing I suggest you go to the hospital and explain that you believe your kidneys, liver, and colon aren't capable of cleansing your body, and you are dying.

    18. QUESTION:
      Does the Lemonade Detox cleansing diet work?
      anyone try it?
      I'm planning on trying it...the ingredients are specific and it combines with fasting.

      • ANSWER:
        Dont do it!!!
        Its just another fad diet that makes you lose water weight and muscle giving you false sense of success, slows down your metabolism and makes huge contribution to yo-yo cycle.
        You will gain it all and more back when start eating normal again.

    19. QUESTION:

    20. QUESTION:
      Will the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet decrease the effectiveness of my birth control pill?
      I take my birth control pill every night at 8pm, and I want to do the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet for 7 days, but I don't want to worry about pregnancy. I know that I need to drink a cup of herbal laxative tea each morning and at night, and I don't want it to interfere with the pill. Please answer if you know. :)

      • ANSWER:
        I am not on the pill but I use the NuvaRing and it was fine. I did the Master Cleanse for 10 days (4/4/10 - 4/14/10) and I stayed sexual active and everything was fine. If you have read the book "Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days" there is a section that actually talks about birth control and with the women who have done the cleanse, it hasn't had an affect on the birth control.

        And by the way, you are supposed to drink the laxative tea at night and do the salt water flush in the morning but if you are not able to do the salt water flush that morning then you are suggested to drink another laxative tea.

      The lemonade cleansing diet?
      If doing the lemon cleansing diet, how long can you really go? It says at least 10 days but would it be ok to go less? Say 5 days?

      • ANSWER:
        This is a fad diet. They usually don't work, and if they do, you will shortly after gain weight. Just cut back on calories and exercise 60+ minutes each day. A 2000 calorie diet is pushing it.

    23. QUESTION:
      Would it completely ruin the Master Cleanse/lemonade diet if i added another juice?
      I have been on the master cleanse for 2 days and i feel fine with the diet. I am not craving food, but I feel like I need something with some actual taste since Im so tired of the spicy lemon flavor. Would it be sooo bad if I just drink 1-2 cups of orange or cranberry juice a day along with the lemonade? It's not like I'm eating something..

      • ANSWER:
        why not switch the lemon for orange for the drink? drinking more fluids wouldn't hurt.

    25. QUESTION:
      The Master Cleanse Diet (Lemonade Diet) Question?
      I bought all the ingredients for the Lemonade Diet, however. I could only find Grade A maple syrup at my local grocery store. Will this hold me back from losing weight?

      Thanks in advance!

      • ANSWER:
        You should wait and get the grade b. I actually ordered mine from amazon and it got here pretty fast. Im guessing gilbert really doesn't know what he's talking about because I have done the master cleanse twice. The first time I did it in january for 10 days and lost 17 pounds. I only gained back 5 pounds in 4 months because I went back to my old eating habits and didn't work out. I did it again at the end of april and ended the cleanse about two weeks ago. I did it for 18 days and lost 20 pounds. I have no gained any of that weight back. I was not starving nor did I feel weak or anything like that. I lost all that weight and kept just about all of it off. If you do not go back to your old eating habits you will not gain any of it back. Just eat right when you get off and you'll be fine =).

      Can I do the lemonade cleanse/diet without the whole laxatives deal?
      I had an allergic reaction to a laxative (senoside) not too long ago. I really want to do this cleanse/diet for both the reasons of cleansing my body and losing the few pounds that come with it. So i guess my question isn't if I can do it without it but if theres an alternative. Thanks....

      • ANSWER:
        The formula for losing those excess pounds is easy - consume less food and workout more often - the issues surface when we actually try to put that into operation! There are a lot of stumbling blocks out there aren't there?!

    29. QUESTION:
      Has anyone done the lemonade diet/Master Cleanse diet successfully while eating?
      Eating while you do the lemonade diet/Master Cleanse!

      • ANSWER:
        You can't do the cleanse while eating. Your body will be using its energy to digest your food. That's why Jesus and other spritual people fast and pray. While fasting your body isn't wasting energy on digesting food, so your mind can think clear and be more in touch with spiritual things.

      2 tbsp genuine maple syrup
      1/10 tbsp cayenne pepper
      mixed with 8oz of water
      drink 6-10 glasses for 10 days

      Can you drink additional water?

      Can you still do cardio and weight training normal or will you feel tired?

      Thanks

      • ANSWER:
        Yes, it's actually recommended that you do drink more water during the day.

        I think you should try to work out a little bit, but if you start to feel weak, tired, or dizzy, then you should stop.
        Good luck!

      Im thinking of starting the Lemonade diet(The Master Cleanse Diet) If I do get hungry during my time on the diet can I eat any fruits or veggies? Also I heard Im suppose to drink some sort of tea on the diet. I would like only responses of people who have been on/ tried the diet, not any negative responses please.
      Thank You

      • ANSWER:
        The Lemonade Diet is a short-term, cleansing diet that is similar to a juice fast in many ways. While you are following the diet (10 to 40 days), your sole source of energy and nutrients is a lemonade made with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, purified (non-fluoridated) water, grade-B maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. In addition, each morning, you drink a salt-water flush, and each evening you drink a laxative tea. The only other beverages allowed on the Lemonade Diet are pure (non-fluoridated) water and peppermint tea.
        There is a strict regimen for ending the diet, beginning with fresh-squeezed citrus juices for approximately 36 hours, and then gradually moving to raw vegetables and fruits or to cooked vegetable soups over the course of three to five days after ending the regime.

      • ANSWER:
        Detox pills, and detoxification and cleansing in general, are neither useful nor necessary unless you have had long-term narcotic use or are chronically constipated. Detoxification and cleansing has no proven medical benefits for the average person whatsoever. It will NOT help you lose any significant amount of fat. Your intestines are clean unless you use large amounts of muscle relaxers, or have serious digestive illness.

        The only thing that will help you lose weight is a healthy lifestyle that consists of a proper diet and frequent exercise.

    36. QUESTION:
      Can I try the Master Cleanse/ Lemonade diet while on medication?
      Yeah so I'd like to detoxify, but I take a few medications daily. Can I do the Master Cleanse/ Lemonade diet anyway?
      No, I'm not sick.
      But thanks for the awful answer.

      Relevant answers, please!

      • ANSWER:
        Because you used the word medication I am assuming that you are on doctor prescribed medication. To attempt a detox diet while on prescribed medication and still taking the medication is dangerous. Below are some quotes from the website listed in sources.
        1) cannot suggest a cleanse to anyone, especially those who are on medications for their health or who have diagnosed conditions....Be careful and listen to your body. If you do go on a cleanse of any kind and you feel faint for an extended period of time, you should stop whatever it is that you are doing. You may feel a little sick, have a sore throat or feverish, but if you feel dizzy or nauseated, please be careful. You may not be fit enough to put your body through something like this.....Remember if you start feeling really badly, cease whatever it is you are doing -- and be sure to keep yourself hydrated! Nausea is just something I don't understand in a cleanse. If you start to vomit, obviously it's not good for you. Obviously, there is something wrong. I have never felt nauseated while on a cleanse and only had diarrhea because of the Senna leaf tea. I almost always had increased energy and was even able to exercise (an hour of advanced Tae Bo) daily.

        This web site looks to me like a must read before trying any kind of cleanse

    37. QUESTION:
      What's in the lemonade diet (aka: master cleanse diet) that makes you lose weight?
      And how much do you normally lose on a diet like this?

      • ANSWER:
        Well, I don't know if you can consider it lemonade when you're not supposed to add any sugar. Basically what you do is use organic lemons and turn them into lemon juice and add as much cumin powder that you can stand and drink it for the day. Make a pitcher and that's all you drink.
        You can also cleanse your body drinking Organic Apple cider vinegar and distilled water 3 times a day, just take 2 table spoons of ACV in a glass of distilled water you can add organic honey for taste, and it helps you loose weight, your skin will look much better.
        If you are just interested in cleansing your body without going on a liquid diet, you should try Experience by a company called Awareness.

    38. QUESTION:
      Has anyone tried the lemonade cleansing diet? It has lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne powder- did it work?
      for u? I'm thinking about doing it this week, thanks

      • ANSWER:
        I have no actually tried that particular diet, but I have tried a diet that incorporated hot lemon water everyday. Lemons are just a diuretic- but it really seemed to help a lot actually. I still try and have a hot cup of tea with lemon every night. It provides a lot of Vitamin C as well as pushes things through your system faster.

    40. QUESTION:
      Is it common to feel ill while on the master cleanse/lemonade diet ?
      Well I've been on the master cleanse for three days now. I have been following the rules pretty well and I'm just wondering if its common to feel ill on it. The first two days I felt absolutely no sickness but this morning I got three hours of sleep and woke up really sick, dry heaving and everything. I have no fever however, I was just wondering if this is common on the master cleanse or is this just normal sickness caused by some sort of virus ?

      • ANSWER:
        Hi
        I felt weak for the first 3 - 4 days. I did feel ill when I think about it. I remeber having great difficulty I think on day 3 trying to consume the Lemon and syrup mix. This all passed however after day 4. Only other thing was there were a couple of nights were I just could not get proper sleep. i believe you are probably experiencing a normal condition associated with following the diet strictly.
        Good luck.
        i thought I would paste an answer to another question below as it may contain some usefull info (but maybe not) for you.

        I have just completed a similar detox (though I purchased the actual Madal Lemon Detox. the syrup is a combination of palm and maple.
        In the promotional booklet, I believe it mentioned that you should not spend more than 14 days on the cleanse without first seeking medical advice.
        The mix I used was 140ml with arround 4 - 6 lemons and 1/2 tsp of cayene pepper and added suffcient water to make 2 litres.
        I had a cup of Senna tea at night (for me this was gross) in the morning I used to drink 1 litre of water mixed with 3 teaspoons of sea salt. (this was drunk within about 10 minutes on an empty stomach) The sea salt mix travels through the body quickly and be sure to stay close to the toilet for about an hour.
        So per day, I had 1 litre of salt water, 1 - 2 litres of pure mineral water the 2 litres of prepared Lemon detox mix and the horrid Senna tea at night. ( it may just be a personal dislike of the Senna tea, as I havnt noticed anyone else complain about it)

        I stayed on this for the full 14 days. I had big difficulties up untill day 4 I felt weak, and my weight appeared to have actually increased!!
        After day 4, it became quite easy as if something in the body just switched over. I would have had no problem staying on it longer, but I thought 14 days was probably long enough without solid food.
        Incidently, I felt that I suffered significant muscle wasting using the diet. I did little or no exercise as my understanding is if you do a lot of exercise while on the diet you will lose muscle. This was the negative side.

        the positive side?? I did actually feel better physicaly and mentaly. I felt motivated and commenced an exercise program (after completion of the diet) and my weight loss?? Well I droped arround a stone in weight and the weight loss was noticed by everyone I new. So, for me it was worth while.
        Good Luck.

    41. QUESTION:
      How to start the Master Cleanse (Lemonade Diet)?
      I'm going to be starting the 10-day Master Cleanse tomorrow morning! I'm very excited to start. I was just curious about the salt water flush part of the cleanse: should I do a flush before I go to bed tonight, or just start the entire cleanse right of the bat tomorrow?

      Thanks a bunch to any and all who answer :)

      • ANSWER:
        The salt water flush is to help you go to the bathroom, but that's because you won't have any food in your system to push the poop out normally. You could start your salt water flush tonight. It won't hurt but it is a bit premature at this point. Do make sure to use sea salt not table salt.
        Below are some other good tips for you.
        Good luck!

    42. QUESTION:
      Have you ever used the master cleanse diet/Lemonade diet?
      Did it work? was it hard? Details....

      • ANSWER:
        I have tried it and it made me feel like krap. Besides it strips your body of so much calcium you can lose bone density after doing it for about a week or two. A good safe cleanse that will clean the body and help strengthen the immune system is
        1 teaspoon bentonite
        1 tablespoon crushed flax seed, or psylium husk
        1 teaspoon fresh aloe or two ounces 100% aloe juice
        1/2 cup distilled water
        1/2 cup apple juice
        Take in the morning. After a few days your poop will smell worse as your Colon flushes toxins. Keep taking the cleanse till your poop loses the fetid smell.
        To help strengthen the immune system you can add Vitamin C (ester-C or mineral ascorbates) not ascorbic acid.
        To help clean the blood add a clorella supplement and multi vitamin. Only get your ingrediens from a health food store or natural holistic doctor. Supermarkets and drug store grade supplements are very low quality.

      What is the expected weightloss on the lemonade/master cleanse diet?
      I am on day 4 of the lemonade/master cleanse diet.
      I was just wondering if anyone has done this diet and how much weight they lost. For some reason I haven't lost anything yet and I am almost half way done. (10 day cleanse) I am kind of concerned.
      Thanks for any feedback.

      • ANSWER:
        I tried it. A lot of people from my work were on it and they said they lost a lot of weight. It was horrible. I tried it for I think 10-14 days (it was a while ago, i cant remember exactly). I lost 5 or 6 lbs on it, but it was not worth it to me-especially for what you have to do! I think maybe that the other people that I knew on it lost a lot more weight than me because they all had a lot more to lose than me. They were all very overweight. I am not, I do not have the much weight to lose, its more of a personal preference than a need. So I have heard it works, but I did not like it.

      Master cleanse lemonade diet? just a few questions?
      Okay, so i'm doing the master cleanse diet right now (i'm on day 4)
      i plan to do this for 2 weeks
      i drink about 6 cups of the lemonade stuff everyday, in addition to tea and salt water

      now, the salt water...what is the purpose of that? i read contradicting things about how the flushing is good or bad. how much am i supposed to drink?

      can i exercise while on this diet? i generally run an hour everyday, go to the gym, or take aerobic/dance classes

      what are the after-effects of this cleanse? how much weight would i lose? and will i gain it all back once i start eating normally?

      I also read that I'm not supposed to eat meat and dairy for a month after the diet, but that really limits my food choices.

      is it okay to do this diet every 4 weeks? i want to lose 30 lbs

      also, will this decrease my metabolism? and if so, how can i get my metabolism to increase?

      Please help!!
      thanks!

        Diet and excercise is an excellent way to lose wiehgt, it just takes discipline and dedication. I dont want to sound mean, but FAd diets are just that. FAD. Here is an articel i found in reference to the MAster Cleanse.

      Is the Master Cleanse Lemonade diet healthy for me?HELP?
      I am 16 years old i weight about 137 im 5'4 and i want to try the diet but i dont know much about or if its healthy...so i know your suppose to drink about 6-10 glases a day...and i was wondering if this feels you up or not and...and what does it taste like(does it taste like lemonade or what) and on their website it says i should take a laxative why is that necassary.

      • ANSWER:
        One part of the lemonade diet is to rid your body of toxins, so the laxative is to help along with the riding your body of toxins part, so essentially you will poop alot on this diet so make sure you are close to a bathroom when you start this diet. I really wouldnt call it a diet, more so, its a once in awhile cleanse.

    Cleansing Diet Drink

    Written By: admin - Apr• 30•12

    Not sure of the reaction you will get from friends if you told them you are going to have a colon cleanse? They may expect it means you are going to either use a herbal preparation, go for colonic irrigation or have an enema. However, none of these approaches are ones that people tend to be happy about adopting, especially if they are looking for the least invasive, most gentle way to cleanse the colon.

    Having a colon cleanse has become almost fashionable, with the benefits of a clean colon and detoxing the body being talked about on almost every day time show, and with infomercials being shown across countless channels.

    However, what people do not realise is that there is no need to adopt a colon cleansing program, if they adopt some simple steps to help themselves clean the colon naturally.

    This process will take longer than using a herbal preparation or having the waste flushed out of the body using an enema or colonic irrigation, but it is a natural process, and will mean that once adopted the diet will help the person stay cleansed for life.

    Here are some steps a person can take to make the colon a healthier environment:

    Eat more fiber, both soluble and insoluble – Vegetables and fruit are rich sources of both soluble and insoluble fiber.

    Continue reading to discover how to sign up for the free colon-cleansing newsletter and find our more about detoxing the body for health.

    Avoid foods that are low in fiber while carrying about the colon-cleansing regime. These would include red meat (no fiber), sausages, pepperoni, bacon, pork and meat extracts.

    Exercise regularly, and everyday while on a colon cleansing program as exercise stimulates the bowels.

    Fasting can help to reduce the amount of foods and toxins being consumed. This will mean that less food has to be processed and the body can concentrate on the job of eliminating any waste lodged in the colon.

    Drinking plenty of water is essential, and eliminate all drinks that dehydrate the body, including alcohol, caffeinated drinks and soda.

    Digestive enzymes and probiotic foods can help rebalance the gut and colon and also help the body to absorb more nutrients from the foods eaten.

    Digestive enzymes tend to come from raw foods that we eat, and they are killed or dramatically reduced by the process of cooking the foods. The most enzyme rich foods are sprouted seeds, legumes and grains.

    If food is cooked then the best way is through lightly steaming or stewing the food. This way some of the digestive enzymes are maintained in the food.

    Changing diet is the least invasive, most gentle way to cleanse the colon. Although it may be a slower process than adopting a colon cleansing program, it does allow for the whole body to get into balance using solely dietary changes and exercise.

    7. QUESTION:
      How well does the cayenne pepper & lemon cleansing diet work?
      I have started drinking lemon juice with cayenne pepper and maple syrup to try to lose 20 pounds. Does this diet drink really work?

      • ANSWER:
        Hi, I am a Accredited Nutritionist and would strongly advise against using this diet.

        Yes - you are likely to lose weight, however this is purely from not eating. Your body will enter a "starvation mode" meaning that it will try to store as much fat as possible. After finishing the diet, you are likely to gain weight more quickly and fat replacing the any muscle that was lost. So this diet isn’t really leading to any weight loss at all.

        Another problem with this diet is the lack of intake of nutrients needed for everyday living. There are also a number of side effects that you may experience including feeling dizzy, moody and hungry and you'll find it hard to function.

        Please, for the sake of your own health, do not go on this diet.

    9. QUESTION:
      How do I make the drink for The Master Cleanse diet?
      How do I make the drink for the master cleanse diet? What are some results that people have had? I am not doing this for weight loss, but to lose a few pounds would be great. I want to clean out my system, since I recently quit smoking. Does anyone have success stories doing this diet? Thanks

      • ANSWER:
        One thing that will help you lose weight: a colon cleanse. I was one of those who did not believe in them until I tried it. And I tried a few until I found a great one that works (its all natural too! - it's just pills, but you'll detox, lose weight, and fell much, much better). You can go to

      • ANSWER:

    11. QUESTION:
      Can I incorporate a salt-water flush and the Master Cleanse drink into my normal diet?
      I'm on day 1 of the master cleanse now, and I'm wondering if I can make the Salt Water Flush and the MC lemonade as part of my regular diet? Perhaps not doing the SWF every morning, but a few times a week? And perhaps drinking the MC lemonade a few times a day? Or would regular lemon-water be a better option for everyday?

      • ANSWER:
        No,
        the salt water flush is there to eliminate toxins DURING the cleanse - help the movement of intestines in absence of solid food, which would normally enable elimination.

        If you have a healthy balanced diet (especially rich in fibre), there is no need for you to resort to induced bowel movements. It would actually be a dangerous thing to do. Think of it as laxative abuse. Not only will you flush out all the essential nutrients from your body, you will also most likely irreversibly damage your body's ability to absorb them , but also you will become dependent on the flush to have a bowel movement. So you'd risk many problems arising if you decide to do that (digestive, malnutrition, bowel problems and even some types of cancer)
        So you can only make yourself ill by practicing this + it will be for nothing because of course it won't have the same effect as detoxing, because you need to immobilize the toxins (lemonade) but without taking any in (normal diet) i.e. it needs to be lemonade fast (basically the Master Cleanse only, for at least 10 days) So it is truly counter productive.

        As to the lemonade - again, it won't have the same effect. You could incorporate it to some extend.
        I have done this: Have a glass of lukewarm water with lemon and cayenne pepper first thing in the morning. Skip the maple as you don't need it - in the cleanse it serves as a source of energy, but you'll get energy from your normal diet. So yeh, you can drink that to get your digestive juices flowing and get your stomach ready for some food.

        If you want to detoxify, you could perhaps repeat the cleanse every 3-4 months. Remember that the Master Cleanse is a specially designed plan - all ingredients have a purpose and are combined in a way to bring you benefits and avoid harm.
        + if you did incorporate it into your diet and you were to do the cleanse again, it would not work as your body would have gotten used to it.

        Just enjoy the benefits of the cleanse now and after you finish it, make a lifestyle change and eat as healthy as possible (that's one of the outcomes of the cleanse anyway btw - you should crave the stuff that is good for you n not the junk)
        Your system will be refreshed and so will your energy levels - you will naturally eliminate more efficiently so you shouldn't need any help from external sources other than healthy diet.

        Oh and don't forget to break the fast right.

    12. QUESTION:
      Any homemade cleansing weight loss drinks?
      i know that if you mix Cheyenne pepper, lemon and water its a good fat burning diet drink.
      can anyone suggest any cleansing diet drinks i can make.
      please i cant take being fat another minute. ):>
      im 14, i cant buy diet pills drinks.
      it needs to be stuff you can find in your fridge.

      • ANSWER:
        Diet and exercises. Don't put one thing in your mouth that isn't home cooked. Never eat any foods high in sugar fat or salt and never eat processed or packaged food. Nothing fried, greasy or fatty. No fast foods or desserts. No white carbs.No sodas or fruit juices ( no minute maid crap. Get 100% juice like Tropicana) Stick to the four food groups, emphasizing the vegetables and fruits. Make sure your doing AT LEAST 30 minutes of cardio ( running is the best) or even Pilate's 3-4 times a week. If your going somewhere nearby, walk or bike instead of taking the car. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Drink lots of water. Cut your portion sizes in half if you feel like there too big. And never go on diets. If you want to keep the weight off, you will have to make this a lifestyle choice, of healthy eating and exercises. Crash diets actually make you gain weight. Homemade cleansing drinks fat burning drinks are a myth. The closest thing to that is water. If you want to lose weight, your going to have to work hard. Good luck!

    14. QUESTION:
      Has anyone did the master cleanse diet, lemonade drink?
      I am wanting to try it..its the lemonade diet drink..I got the recipe off the internet..I heard it really worked..cleanses your body and you lose weight..you have to drink 6-12 glasses a day for 10 days...well they said there is certain foods you can actually eat with the diet but you had to buy the book to see the foods..most people dont eat anything for 10 days..so I was wondering if anyone did this diet, if they ate anything with it and if it worked?
      Thanks!

      • ANSWER:
        Of course you're going to lose weight.. you aren't eating anything. Don't buy into any detoxes or diet drinks.. all it's going to do is starve you. It won't "cleanse" you at all.. your body does that naturally. All the water weight that you DO lose from not eating, you're going to gain right back when you start eating again.

    15. QUESTION:
      what are you suppossed to eat/drink after the "master cleanse diet?"?
      im going to try the diet/cleanse, im wondering though what are you supposed to do after day ten? i think i read raw veggies and fruits. but i also read somewhere to drink orange juice? And what type of water do you use?

      • ANSWER:
        First of all reconsider the master cleanse. It is totally unnecessary.
        Liquid bowel movements are a messy side effect. Going 10 days without food, plus consuming only a minimal amount of nutrients (given the drink’s ingredients) can add unnecessary stress on the body and potentially put health at risk.
        Colon cleansing is known to disrupt the balance between natural enzymes and bacteria in the digestive tract. Medical professionals believe that the colon is completely self-sufficient.
        "Anyone interested in detoxifying their body might think about paying a little more attention to their body and less attention to the people trying to get their money. The body already has nature's most effective detoxification system. It's called the liver. The liver changes the chemical structure of foreign compounds so they can be filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, which then excrete them in the urine."

      • ANSWER:
        You should do the salt water flush first thing in the morning only, and expect an elimination within two to three hours afterwards. As long as you drink plenty of water during the day, you will have additional bowel movements throughout the day.

This is the first day it begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 11p.m.or whenever u go to sleep. Please take a multivitamin. The second day water only and have lettuce and tomato salad (you may add sunflower seeds or a choice of nut) only every 3 hours. Any fat free dressing is fine, but remember do not pour dressing over salad. This day starts at 8a.m. and ends at 8p.m. The third day have fruits and veggies all day do not add cheese or any other things. Fresh veggies, you can season them with lemon pepper or healthy seasonings. The fourth day drink water and go back to your apple day. Your bowel will be different and you will have more energy. You will lose approximately 8 lbs from water,but if u work out u may lose about 10- 15 lbs easily. U have to pace yourself when starting to eat meats and snacks again or u will gain more weight. You can do this apple cleansing diet twice a month.

    27. QUESTION:
      Is it possible that I can just drink the laxative tea when doing the Master Cleanse Diet?
      I understand that you have to drink a salt mixture AND a tea laxative for this diet, but me & salt don't get along to well --- especially if I have to SWALLOW the salt water.

      So instead, can I just drink the tea laxative morning and night?
      Has anyone tried it this way?

      • ANSWER:
        I read questions like this, and I feel like asking "Why do you hate yourself so much that you put your body through such a horrible torture like this?"
        Drinking tea or salt water isn't going to make much of a difference.

    29. QUESTION:
      Is it necessary to drink the salt flush drink and herbal tea during the master cleanse diet?
      will I get the same results? What is a good herbal laxitive tea I can get from my local grocery store?

      • ANSWER:
        I feel that the salt flush is important as it helps with the flushing process which is the core of the master cleanse.

        As far as the herbal laxative tea goes, most anything with senna leaf will work. Senna leaf is a natural stimulant to keep you going, in the applied sense. Most any grocery store should have some sort of laxative tea. My personal favorite is the "smooth move" tea from Traditional Medicinals which can be found at most grocery stores.

        You can read about some more articles in the resources box

    30. QUESTION:
      Can you drink green tea while on the master cleanse diet?

      • ANSWER:
        Green tea is OK but for laxative effects you want to use Smooth Move tea, available at most food stores or the health store. If you can't find it, go to the health store and look for Diet tea or Super Dieters Tea. Both of these work well. Good luck.

      • ANSWER:
        A Detox Diet (also called a cleansing diet) will remove toxins and poisons from your body. The idea of a good detox diet is to eat pure and natural foods that will aid the function of the lymph, kidneys, and liver. All foods that hinder the regime will be avoided.A 7 day cleansing diet can be a good idea if you've overindulged over the holidays or while on vacation and you need to get back on track with a healthier diet and exercise program

      Isagenix Cleanse Diet--normal to gain weight on the first day?
      So, probably being just super paranoid here, but I started the Isagenix Cleanse diet today. It's basically a plan where you drink a cleansing drink four times per day, drink lots of water, and eat up to six little snack wafers if you get hungry. You're supposed to do this for two days, then switch to the next part of the diet, which is protein shake meal replacement.

    36. QUESTION:
      What do you know about Green Drink? Wheat Grass?
      I am interesting in cleansing my body by drinking "Green drink". I am just learning about health so couldn't go into a long describtion surrounding my beliefs but for those of you who know anything about this I would love to get some recipes for blending a good healthy drink.

      It has been a recomended cleansing diet to drink 3 liters daily of a green drink with wheat grass for 7 to 10 days.

      • ANSWER:
        Lemonade is yellow but it's the most famous cleansing drink. I have recipe for green tea but it's not for cleansing.

        The lemonade diet recipe detail is here:

        * 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon.
        * 2 tablespoons of grade B Maple Syrup.
        * Add cayenne pepper according to your preference
        * A glass of pure water.

        The cayenne pepper is important as it adds a lot of vitamin B and C.

        You can do a little improvisation by adding mint tea for a twist of taste and/or lemon skin.

        Peel the lemon skin and add a little bit to your drink. (The skin may contain artificial colour, make sure you peel the yellow skin surface)

        Mix all the ingredients in a blender (if you use the lemon skin, otherwise just mix them in a glass).

        Life Style Change Program for Loosing Weight
        By
        minootoo

        Who needs to loose weight?

        Answer is simply not every one, only the over weight person.

        Who is over weight?

        This is simple, it is easy to find out and it is available on line, it is call Body Mass Index, and calculations are simple. According to this calculation if you find your self say only 10 pounds more, you may not be over weight. Remember every one is slightly different and you can just watch it, on your own and not let it get out of hand.

        What is the reason for being over weight?

        This is also simple, have doctor check you out for any physical or hormonal abnormalities. The doctor should be advising you of your ideal weight even though you have already figured out the ideal weight and you are seen a doctor because your weight is not where it should be according to BMI.

        Basic understanding of loosing weight.

        Every one uses calories at all time. There may be some exceptions to this rule, for most of us; the rate of use, even when we are resting, we use 65 calories per hour minimum. This comes to1560 calories per day. The actual range is between 65 and 100 calories per hour. This is consistent with heart rate of 60 to 80 bits per minute.

        Simply put any person eating only say 1500 calories a day will not put on any additional weight. At this level of calories consumption the person should loose some weight over long haul, depending on the individual rate of metabolism.

        What is a healthy weight loss?

        When one tries to loose weight, one should loose excess fat; there should be a healthy loss of weight. Loosing muscles tissue is unhealthy.

        How much is one pound of body fat?

        One pound of body fat weight is approximately same as one pound of butter. If you look at a one pound package of butter, you will see it contains between 3200 to 3600 calories. This means that each time a person burns 3600 more calories then what the person takes in, the person will loose one pound.

        How many pounds should a person loose in a month?

        Any one that is trying to trim down can figure out how long it took to put on the excess pounds. The fact is; it did not happen over night. It usually creeps up, but the person realizes one day suddenly.

        This is why a person should not be in a hurry to loose weight. The person should start at once but go slowly. Do not wait for New Year.

        Taking above in to consideration a person should not loose more then 2 pounds per month. If a person looses any thing more then that, chances are that the person will not be able to maintain the weight loss. It will take extra efforts to loose and it will take extra efforts to keep it off. Remember slow and steady wins the race.

        When an overweight person should start loosing weight?

        At once. The person should not be in a hurry to loose weight. The person should start at once but go slowly. Again do not wait for New Year.

        How does body react to weight lose?

        Any time there is depletion of fat beyond certain level, the body reacts by slowing down metabolism, so that it can build up fat. If the body is use to say 2000 calories per day and detects only 1500 calories per day for considerable length of time it reacts to the situation by reducing the rate of metabolism. When this happens one need to help body by increasing activity. Usually takes about four weeks for body to react.

        What is the relationship between body and body fat?

        Under ideal condition fat act as a reserved energy source for our body. Certain level of fat is good for healthy living and even may save our life in certain life threatening situations. Every one should have minimum required level of fat on their body.

        What if there is no weight loss at 1500 calories in take level?

        This is a rear occurrence. Do not panic. The body has slowed down the metabolism to such a great extent that you must help it. The only way to help is to increase activities, this means you have to exercise. You do not need to join Gym but you can go on an an half an hour walk every day or batter still engage in a power walk for same duration. Power walk burns 250 calories per hour and walk burns 100 calories per hour approximately.

        What is the importance of body fat for a female?

        Females require little more body fat then men. In the absence of certain required level of body fat, females are not able to function properly; in particular they may not be able to conceive. You can find lot more about this on internet.

        At 1500 calories intake per day what one must drink and eat?

        Drink

        One gallon of liquids most of witch should be in the form of water (zero calories).
        Calories should be accounted for all other liquids.

        Why water?

        Water is a universal solvent, means it dissolves almost every thing at least in very minute quantities. This helps purification of body.

        Eat

        What should be your proportionate in take of fat, Proteins and Complex Carbohydrates?

        This depends on what your need are.

        1.Need to reduce fat.

        Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
        Complex Carbohydrates: 30 percent of 1500 calories per day = 450 calories.
        Proteins: 60 percent of 1500 calories per day = 900 calories.

        2.Need more energy.

        Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
        Complex Carbohydrates: 40 percent of 1500 calories per day = 450 calories.
        Proteins: 50 percent of 1500 calories per day = 750 calories.

        3.Need to reduce weight only.

        Fat: 25 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 375 calories.
        Complex Carbohydrates: 25 percent of 1500 calories per day = 375 calories.
        Proteins: 50 percent of 1500 calories per day = 750 calories.

        4.Need to increase muscles bulk, but still reduce weight.

        Fat: 10 percent of 1500 calorie per day = 150 calories.
        Complex Carbohydrates: 15 percent of 1500 calories per day = 225 calories.
        Proteins: 75 percent of 1500 calories per day = 1125 calories.
        Exercise the muscles you want to develop, you can find right exercise on line, recommend use of light weights.

        Foot note: To take fat is so important, while reducing even fat, that it is included in all cases. If the fat is completely cut out, body will think of producing the fat, and will produce the fat by reducing metabolism, without fat in take, you may actually again weight even at lower than 1500 calorie level. You will feel run down and lethargic.

        How one must, drink and eat?

        Drink

        Every one may not be able to follow this regime.

        A 16 oz glass of water first thing in the morning will be very healthy start.
        If you need to stabilize your stomach before eating, you can have a glass of water just before each and every meal. This is the easiest way to meet your quota of gallon of liquids.

        Eat

        To day almost half the world is starving.

        In western culture. Standard healthy practice for long time was three warm square meals per day. No eating in between, but children were allowed night cap.

        All that has changed, present thinking is 5 to 6 times per day. Any way what practice one follows is up to them; to each his own.

        Another best practice will be a glass of water before bed time, nothing to eat for two hours before bed time.

        How do I know the calorie count for various drinks and food?

        If you are buying packaged items it is on the package.

        Go on the internet and find the calorie information.

        Lots of cook book now a days list calorie per serving.
        Use your best guess, in this method use higher figure then you have guessed.

There are a lot of detox diets out there, but really, do not go on a fast, but rather a 5 to 10 day diet of no meat, and lots of fresh vegetables and fruit. Drink lots of 100% juice. And preferably these should be organic, free of toxic pesticides.
