That aim is to cleanse your body of toxins and waste, help you to lose weight, and to leave you in a better all round state of health. As you will not be eating any food for a 10 day period, and only drinking a homemade lemonade drink with plenty of pure, filtered water I think we should consider some of the master cleanse secrets to get you through this diet
Some master cleanse secrets
Fresh ingredients – It is vital that you use fresh ingredients for your lemonade drink. Fresh ingredients are one of the most important aspects for getting the best master cleanse results.
Lemons – You must use fresh lemons, organic ones whenever possible, and to ensure the freshness of the drink the lemon juice should be freshly squeezed. Canned lemon juice will not work, and will possibly take away any of the benefits you are hoping for.
Maple Syrup – You should use grade B maple syrup, not the sugar filled syrup that is used at the breakfast table.
Cayenne Pepper – Although not vital to the recipe if you use it you will get a bit of a kick out of the drink, and the pepper is good for breaking down mucus as well as increasing healthy blood flow. It is also a good source of two ‘super vitamins’ Vitamins B and C.
State of mind – This is always a difficult one to manage. You really do have to prepare yourself for this diet. Fasting is no easy thing to do, particularly if you are used to eating regularly, and you generally eat when you feel like it. Do consider what you will be putting yourself through as if you are in the right state of mind you will have a far greater chance of succeeding.
Friends – You might not even think of the social aspect of detoxing, however there is no doubting you will need support during this diet. You should consider getting together with a few friends, and trying to start the diet together. The reason for this suggestion is that you can then give each other the support that will be required.
There are many more ideas and tips on how to succeed with this diet, and you can get these by purchasing booklets, or joining forums that the many people who have used this diet have created. While medical experts disagree on this type of dieting being effective its longevity cannot be denied.
