Fasting is a much debated topic, even today – when thousands of years of fasting experiences have been relayed and related to generations of people. Fasting is ingrained in certain cultures and you will find people who feel fasting is a great way to lose weight and feel healthy and you’ll find some dieticians who will tell you that fasting is dangerous and could even make you GAIN weight. So, in discussing the lemon juice master cleanse approach, we need to look at all aspects of fasting and cleansing diets, particularly using lemon juice.
Types of Fasting Diets
There are various types of fast, including dry fasts (no food OR water), liquid fasts (no solids but plenty of water/juices/coffee etc) and then elimination fasts, which basically means removing certain types of food from the normal diet (for example, the Atkins diet could be considered an elimination fast).
Fasting should always be done under the supervision and the advice of a qualified medical professional. If you are unhealthy or underweight, you should not fast.
In this article we are going to examine the 10 day master cleanse diet (fast). Here is what we’ll discuss:
- Detox diet
- Master cleanse variations
- Body cleansing diet
- Does the master cleanse work?
- Master cleanse recipe
- Master cleanse diet weightloss
- Master cleanse secrets
- Body cleansing diet: does it actually work?
- Is the master cleanse diet similar to lemon juice diet?
Master Cleanse Variations
There are three core elements you need to examine
1. Lemon juice
2. Salt water drink
3. Herbal teas
Master cleanse recipes
Lemon juice drink
1 or 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (ideally organic and definitely ‘not from concentrate’
1 or 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (again, go for healthy / organic maple syrup)
Small pinch of cayenne pepper
16oz of natural water
How to use the master cleanse diet
Drink between 5 and 10 glasses of this mixture per day for a period of 10 days. You should also remember to drink normal water in this period but eliminate other drinks such as fizzy drinks or coffee.
The salt water element of the master cleanse diet
You need 2 teaspoons of natural sea salt (you’ll find this in health food shops and supermarkets)
A quarter of luke warm water
Drink it down quickly, it doesn’t taste too pleasant! Ideally do it in the morning when you first get up, then it’s done.
When you are fasting you will initially experience all sorts of different body reactions. You may feel tired, grouchy, head-achy, hungry, weak. Stick with it, these feelings WILL give way to feelings of increased energy and vitality and you will be rewarded, not only with guaranteed weight loss, but a feeling of vibrancy and health that will astound you.
For an even better result, you may wish to do some stretching exercises, meditate, yoga or pilates. You will feel so much better within a very short space of time.
Think about it this way: if you decided to take up the lemon juice / master cleanse diet today, by this time next week you will feel like a totally different person…guaranteed! How many other diet or lifestyle plans can offer such rapid, visible results?
Does the master cleanse diet work?
Yes. 100% of the time, it works.
It is an overwhelming experience to start to feel brighter, to jump out of bed in the morning feeling more energetic, to actually feel your clothes loosening as you put them on in the mornings and to very quickly realise how less and less hungry you are. Within just 10 days on the master cleanse diet, you will see yourself in a new light and will realise just how much toxicity you have managed to remove from your system.
The master cleanse diet rewards your body and begins to offer a respite from the daily damage we tend to do to ourselves with our hectic lifestyle, bad foods and over eating.
