Master Cleanser Side Effects

Let’s rename The Master Cleanser Side Effects. I want to call them Front Effects because they are simple, natural, tolerable and, most importantly, a sign of your healing in progress.

Maple Syrup Diet and The Lemonade Diet

Rich Maple Syrup is our primary source of energy while on The Lemonade Diet, but it isn’t only chosen to give us energy. Usually the first thing I hear from people with whom I am talking to about The Master Cleanse is: “That can’t be healthy. You have to eat! Where will you get your […]

Fresh Lemon Juice is Required for a Lemon Juice Cleanse (Duh)

The Lemon Juice Cleanse that is The Master Cleanse requires the MOST CRITICAL component of The Lemonade Diet, freshly squeezed lemon juice to be just that; FRESH!.

Ease-In Day 1 – Soups, Salads, Whole Grains, No Dairy and No Processed Food

The Ease-In process is designed to ease the transition from a varied diet to a restricted diet. The Master Cleanse is not exactly a fast; it is more accurately described as a restriction diet.

Master Cleanse Recipe – Are you a Master Cleanser?

There is often confusion about the Master Cleanse recipe. A first time Master Cleanser Recipe might not be the same as a 10 time Master Cleanser Recipe – just like a first time skydiver might not follow the same routine as a 10 time skydiver. Experience allows for alternatives. Many people view the Master Cleanse […]

Lemonade Diet – Day 10 – Time to Quit?

Day 10 is here, and you are feeling one of two things. You either have had enough, and are SO EXCITED to start drinking orange juice that you couldn’t stand to think of doing it one more day. You are proud of yourself, but still, you’ve had enough. You are ready to call it a […]

Day 4 may bring a clearing on several fronts.
