Lose Weight and Gain Health with the Lemonade Diet
By Chuck Bluestein
This is also called the master cleanser lemonade fast, lemonade detox diet and lemonade cleansing diet. It is very popular now. Beyonce lost 20 pounds in 10 days for Dream Girls with it and Robin Quivers (Howard Stern's assistant) heard about it from magician, David Blaine. She lost 73 pounds with it. There are many testimonials of people losing weight and getting other benefits so it is a great way to lose weight before the prom. Although, there are complaints about it.
Many people have practiced fasting including Jesus, Moses, Aristotle, Mark Twain, Hippocrates and many medical doctors. Because of this, it has been constantly improved upon. But because the lemonade diet was created by one person, Stanley Burroughs, it has attracted many people who are afraid to improve on it or change anything about it. So they follow it as a cult.
It is like fasting since they are not eating food and consuming water, which is the main ingredient in the lemonade. So they get many of the benefits of fasting like losing weight and cleansing. The lemonade diet recipe contains these ingredients: water, freshly squeezed lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It is better to take the cayenne pepper in a shot glass with water so you can enjoy the lemonade fully.
People experienced with fasting know that you do not have to worry about the colon. Fasting gives it a vacation and it becomes healthier than ever. With the lemomade fast people lose weight and get health benefits from not eating. But there is a practice done as part of it known as the Salt Water Flush where you drink water with a lot of salt in it. This has caused many complaints. I tried it once but never again because I felt sick after doing it.
People complain about the taste of it. They complain about wanting to vomit after drinking it and other problems. It consists of drinking salt water which does not get digested but goes thru and comes out the same way that solid waste comes out. Also they complain how you have to be home with easy access to the toilet since this stuff can come out very quickly. The purpose of doing it is to cleanse the colon. When I did it, I did not know what is bad about it and wanted to see if it really did that and it did. Some complain that it does not work with them.
Now these people do not know why it goes through undigested. The reason is because it is very toxic. It does not take much salt, which is not a food, to kill someone. A guy dissolved 4 ounces of salt (112,000 mg) in a quart of water and drank it and it killed him. A quarter pounder is 4 ounces. The American Medical Association is trying to get the FDA to make salt a regulated substance so they can limit the amount that is put in foods. If someone wants, they can use an enema to clean the colon. They are used in hospitals daily.
If someone consumes no salt for 2 weeks, they can lose up to 20 pounds (mostly water weight). I will not go into a full explanation of it which is on my webpage on losing weight, but salt has no calories but can make you fat due to retained water. Water weight makes you look very fat and weighs a lot. Also consuming less calories and burning lots of calories has no effect on this weight. Also people doing the master cleanse will drink a laxative tea which can be too strong and cause intestinal cramping. Stanley Burroughs is dead so he cannot correct mistakes that he made so it is up to others to do it.
Already some who are followers of this lemonade diet have made minor improvements like replacing maple syrup with agave (a natural sweetener from a cactus) and taking the cayenne in a capsule or a shot glass instead of it being in their lemonade. Dr Herbert Shelton (ND, DC) supervised fasts on 40,000 people. On the first 6,000 he had all of them take enemas. But then he learned that in most cases you do not need to worry about the colon and the rest were done without enemas or with anything to address the cleaning of the colon.
