This How to Master Cleanse is better know as the “lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper diet” I wouldn’t call it a diet, but an internal cleanse for good. It’s basically a spiced up lemonade that’s drank throughout the day. Let me tell you all about it…
The Master Cleanse is better known as the “lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper diet” but I would not call it a diet in the regular sense of food change. Losing weight is definitely a side effect, but I wanted to cleanse my insides and reset a few things internally, to be the utmost and feel better! This is definitely something one must be focused on in completing. It is all in the mind. I have never felt hungry in the past seven years of undertaking this annual journey. When I first came across this I thought it would be a great kick start to a better, healthier way of eating. Upon further review this is especially beneficial to diabetics. So please contact your doctor prior to using this, I am not one.
In the attached Master Cleanse pamphlet (30 pages) PDF it states, “The following program has been tested and approved since 1940 in all sections of the world as the most successful of any diet of its type. Nothing can compare with its positive approach toward perfection in the cleansing and healing field. Nothing can compare with its rapidity and completeness. It is superior in every way as a reducing and body conditioning diet.”
I also found it amazing how much time we dedicate to thinking of food, shopping for food, prepping it, serving it, eating it, cleaning up after. You will discover you have a lot of time on your hands so exercise more! Another fun side effect is there are really no dishes to clean!
Read the first like 12 pages that should give you the nuts and bolts of it all. This is for 10 Days, but you can go farther. Please read.
Here is the down and dirty of it all:
- 1 cup of Smooth Move tea before bed
- 1 quart warm/hot water with 2 tsp of sea salt
- 1 gallon jug
- 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup Grade B Maple Syrup (Sprouts store)
- 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
- Fill the gallon jug with the 1 cup of fresh lemon juice, 1 cup Grade B Maple Syrup and the 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper add water to fill.
- I buy 3 large bags of lemons from Costco you’ll need 4 lemons a day equals 1 cup.
- I get the Grade B Maple Syrup in 16 oz small jugs (buy 5 of these), you will use 1 cup a day which is 8 oz.
NOTHING ELSE ALL DAY EXCEPT AS MUCH WATER AS YOU LIKE OR HERBAL TEA
Be sure to put some probiotics back into your system coming off the Master Cleanse. The ones I use Are Ultimate Flora Adult Formula 15 Billion (10 Probiotic Strains). Age, poor diet and stress can deplete our bodies of billions of good bacteria, which can lead to digestive upsets such as occasional constipation, gas and bloating. Probiotics are the healthy cultures or “friendly bacteria” inside us that help us digest and produce nutrients, restore digestive balance, and support our immune system. Since we just literally flushed and bathed our intestines for 10 straight days, these taken at every meal help get things back on track for 5-7 days.
