How to do the Lemonade Cleanse

If you’re looking for a good way to cleanse your body of harmful toxins, The Lemonade Cleanse, aka The Master Cleanse aka The Lemonade Diet, may be just what you’re looking for.

According to James F. Coy, M.D., Past President of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, “The Master Cleanse is simple and combines & surpasses many other detox methods.” The Master Cleanser diet, otherwise known as the lemonade diet, has been around close to 50 years. Some say it’s the easiest, most delicious, effective cleansing and weight loss diet available.

However, before you dive right in, there are a few things you need to know about the Lemonade Master Cleanse first.

Getting Prepared for the Lemonade Master Cleanse

In order to be successful with the Lemonade Cleanse, you need to be mentally prepared because the cleanse can be difficult to stick with, especially during the first 3 or 4 days while your body is still adjusting. The people who see the most success, have purchased the book by Raylen Sterling, ?The Master Cleanse?. In there you will find all the tips and information you need in order to help you mentally prepare for the hunger and temptations you will face, especially during the first day.

You also need to be at a place in your mind and heart where you’re ready to do the cleanse. Having the proper mindset going in will help ensure your success on the Lemonade Cleanse. It may help to actually remove certain temptations from your home, if possible. Also, make a plan and stick to it. Make sure you don’t have any dates set that will require you to eat out during this time.

The Lemonade Diet Recipe

Use this ingredient list to make sure you have everything you need. The ingredients for the Lemonade Cleanse are pretty basic and most of them can be bought at your local grocery store. Please note that all of the ingredients must be organic.

  • Lemons
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Grade B Maple Syrup
  • Pure, clean, filtered water
  • Sea Salt (not iodized)

You will need a juicer to properly do the lemonade cleanse because you will be drinking 6 to 10 glasses (10oz) each day for 10 days. Depending on the size of the lemons, you will need 3 to 6 lemons for each day and you should make fresh lemonade each day, otherwise the lemons will taste bad.

For 1 serving of the Lemonade Cleanse you need:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Grade B Maple Syrup
  • 1/10 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 10 oz of pure, clean, filtered water
  • Salt Water Flush

The purpose of the saltwater flush is to help your body rid itself of any toxins that have accumulated over the years. It’s recommended to do the saltwater flush in the evening, or whenever you will be relaxing at home because you will likely be heading for the bathroom within half an hour after drinking it, and frequently.

One serving of the saltwater flush consists of:

  • 1 teaspoon of organic sea salt
  • 1 liter of pure, clean, filtered water

Post Cleanse: How to End the Lemonade Cleanse Diet

You don’t eat while cleansing, so post-cleanse it’s best to ease your body back into consuming solid foods. Here are some diet suggestions as you start eating again.

Day 1: Drink organic orange juice with 2 tablespoons maple syrup. The orange juice helps prepare your body for solid food.

Day 2: Begin consuming other organic fruit and vegetable juices. A nice vegetable soup can also be incorporated.

Day 3: Add whole, organic fruits and vegetables to your diet and continue consuming pure, clean, filtered water.

Day 4: Begin introducing whole grains into your diet, but no meat or dairy.
