The Lemonade Diet: My Master Cleansing Secret
The lemonade diet, sometimes referred to as the master cleanse diet, is considered by many as one of those fad diets. However, after more than 60 years of cleansing to make people healthier, it has proven its immense health benefit claims. It was designed with the sole purpose of supporting weight loss in a healthy way through the elimination of toxins and other congestions that put stress on the digestive system and the kidneys. I tried it out because of the results achieved by Jared Leto, Robin Quivers, Beyoncé, and other celebrities that swore to its effectiveness. The lemonade diet removes waste as well as other hardened components stuck in the colon resulting in various desired effects like relief from chronic diseases and increased energy among others.
Considered mostly as a diet for short-term use only, the bottom line is all about the final results. In my experience with the 10-day lemonade diet, I learned how much difference it can make in your overall sense of energy and physical appearance. If you are happy with the weight loss and physical appearance you gained, you can continue it for another 30 days. For those who started the master cleanse diet, make sure not to go beyond 40 days to maximize the following features:
• You get an abundance of Vitamin C including A, B, and the rare Vitamin P. The lemonade also has many minerals (copper, sodium, calcium, and iron among others), proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber.
• Helps you to drink adequate amounts of water daily.
• Provides substantial loss on your total body weight.
• Delivers increased energy levels.
• Supports natural detoxification process.
• Provides clearer and better thinking.
• Improves the immune system lessening sickness and other ailments.
The lemonade diet process delivers many benefits to our body. For one, the lemon combined with the water will help to remove the toxins stored in our bodies. Lemons are generally considered acidic but they are capable of alkalizing the body which is contrary to what most foods do. An acidic diet brings numerous health problems like migraine, digestive problems, and more. Alkaline on the other hand balances the acidic level allowing your body to function normally.
The person on a lemonade diet plan has a healthier looking skin because toxins are excreted removing blockage in the digestive tract as well as those on the skin pores. The skin becomes rejuvenated and common skin problems like acne are avoided. This is actually an easy solution for the many skin problems being experienced by many people today because of the food they eat and the polluted environment that we live in.
Do you experience constipation, indigestion, and a host of other health problems associated with the digestive system? The lemonade diet can help correct these problems when mixed with hot water and drank directly after. Some users have even shared that it relieved the common hiccups when they drank it in juice form. In case you didn’t know, the lemon juice can be used to help your liver digest food through the production of bile. Phlegm produced by the body is reduced and there have been instances when it has been noted to dissolve gallstones.
Vitamin C is the number one enemy of infections and skin allergies, and lemonade has tons of this. The properties of the lemonade used in the master cleanse diet is ideal for healing wounds as well as relieving sore throats, tonsillitis, and certain asthma symptoms.
The lemonade diet can help people with problems in the urinary tract because of its diuretic effects. The toxins and bacteria removed from the body by this lemonade diet also benefits those with rheumatism and arthritis. Some have even suggested that mixing lemonade with coffee relieves common headaches.
The potassium found in lemonade promotes positive nerve and brain cell functions. Calcium which is known for its healthy effect in teeth and bones is also in good concentration in lemonade. The calcium contents together with the magnesium found in lemonade play an integral part in forming blood albumin. Aside from these, lemonade is likewise potassium and phosphorus rich making it ideal to treat fever, colds, influenza, and cough among others. The iron content is also very good in building red blood corpuscles that result in the correction of the most common forms of anemia. The hydrogen content benefits our sensory nervous system while the sodium promotes the building (repair) of body tissues.
The most common complaints about the lemonade diet happen during the initial stages. People find it difficult to follow the master cleanse diet because they are not used to simply eating or drinking lemonade. As a result many experience cravings, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Once you begin hitting your stride you will appreciate the master cleanse experience and understand that all initial symptoms are the result of your body undergoing a more rigid cleansing process.
I have experienced the same initial difficulties with the master cleanse diet or lemonade diet. As with any type of new eating plan, your body needs to adjust, but as time progressed I felt better digestion and less constipation. Beyoncé even went on Oprah to affirm that her weight loss of 20 pounds is because of the lemonade diet. Robin Quivers told People’s Magazine, “This (lemonade diet) is my way of life now. I don’t ever want to feel the way I felt ever again.” Jared Leto on the other hand successfully lost 62 unwanted pounds because of the master cleanse diet.
Since the main ingredient in the master cleanse diet is lemonade, you must know how to choose and use it. Remember that the lemon must be at room temperature. You can roll the lemon on the table to get more juice. Never microwave the lemon because it will change its molecular structure and polarity destroying much of its nutritional value. And to have fresh lemons always choose the brightest colored ones and if possible those with thinner skin to have more juice.
It has long been established that fresh fruits and vegetables do wonders for our health. The healthier we are, the better our body functions and the less health and weight problems that we have.
If you really want to be healthy, you have to do everything to help your body reach its optimum performance. By cleaning our body properly, it gains more power to combat diseases and abnormal conditions like obesity. Following the simple steps of the lemonade diet leads to a cleaner body system and healthier life.
