Word on everyone’s lips is that at the moment there is a new fasting program that will enable you lose weight while at the same time cleansing your body of toxins. Is this just another much hyped ‘”wonder” program that will soon fizzle out like the many diet and nutrition remedies on the market? Let us look at this diet in depth.
Where did this lemonade diet originate from?
Lemons and lime contain a rich mix of minerals and vitamins than any other source of food. They were first used over four decades ago for treatment of stomach ulcers. With the fruits occurring all year round, the diet will be available throughout the year.
What constitutes the lemonade diet?
This is a natural diet and nutrition remedy prepared from all natural ingredients which can be easily found at your local grocery or market. You also don’t have to worry about storage because it is simple. To make one serving of the diet, you will need:
- Half a lemon or two tablespoons of lemon juice
- Two tablespoons of Maple syrup (pure Grade B)
- A tenth a tablespoon Cayenne pepper
- Two cups of water (Purified)
Mix these and you will have the ultimate weight loss drink available. You will need to drink this mixture eight to ten times a day for ten days to get the best results.
How does this diet work?
This mixture helps you lose 1-2 pounds each day. The lemonade diet helps you to remove the fecal waste that has accumulated in your colon. As your body digests foodstuffs, it stores the fecal waste in the colon. With time, a sticky lining of toxic plaque accumulates on the wall which can be as heavy as 20 pounds! This diet helps you remove the lining, making your colon clean. Once it is cleaned up, you avoid foods that may create another toxic lining.
The inclusion of cayenne pepper helps burn fats. It contains an active compound called capsaicin that heats your body and increases the process of metabolism. On the other hand, the maple syrup gives you enough energy to allow you fast. During the fasting, your body will utilize the fat cells and dead cells to gain extra energy. This will make you lose extra weight.
What do you gain when you use this diet successfully?
An increase in your energy levels whether you are fasting or not. This energy will come from the fats that are being burnt down to produce the energy.
When you lose weight, you will have a positive energy and feel revitalized.
When you don’t feel hungry while fasting, you will be able to control what you eat.
