Master Cleanse and The Lemonade Diet

The following program –The Master Cleanse– has been tested and approved since 1940 all around the world and is constantly reported as the most successful diet of its type. As the originator of this superior diet once stated: “I humbly and yet proudly offer it to you, confidant that you will receive vigorous good health from its use”

The Master Cleanse is a Juice Fast. It’s a liquid diet that provides a healthy amount of calories and nutrients specifically suited for weight loss and cleansing, all while resting the digestive system and allowing the body to heal naturally.

Stanley Burroughs - Author of the book “The Master Cleanser“, continues to state: “This diet will prove that no one needs to live with their diseases. A lifetime of freedom from disease can become a reality. The Lemonade diet has successfully and consistently demonstrated its eliminating and building ability.”

The Master Cleanse is such a simple program.

  1. First, squeeze Fresh Lemon Juice.
  2. Then add Rich Maple Syrup, and Cayenne Pepper into Pure Water.
  3. Drink a minimum of six to 12 glasses throughout the day whenever one is hungry (For the Lemonade diet recipe with exact measurements, scroll down this page)
  4. Take a laxative before bed.
  5. instead of the morning laxative, you can do the Salt Water Flush.

Every day of The Master Cleanse that you overcome the psychological need to eat, you feel a growing sense of control that motivates you to complete the process. The Master Cleanse is by far my favorite of the Detox Diet Recipes.

There are three phases to The Master Cleanse:

Master_Cleanse,The_Lemonade_diet

  1. Ease-In: 3 Days of Slowly removing processed foods from your diet.
  2. The Lemonade Diet: 10 Days to Lose Weight Fast, and Feel Great At Last
  3. Ease-Out3 Days of slowly eating more and more complex foods.

Each of these will be explained in detail, and it is very important to follow these directions carefully. If you read closely you shouldn’t have many questions, but of course there is always more to know, so check out the comments. Most of your other questions will be answered there. Since I get so many of the same questions, I will be making a FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions page very soon.

The Complete Master Cleanse by Tom Woloshyn

complete-master-cleanse-tom-woloshyn-

There are often questions regarding the precise ingredients for the Master Cleanser Recipe, as they can vary somewhat, depending on your experience and requirements. Be sure to choose which is right for you and learn how to best be prepared for The Master Cleanser Side Effects.

The best way to prepare for the Master Cleanse is to get educated about all the ingredients and  their purpose as well as the Cleaning process that takes place. Reading the recommended books written on the Master Cleanse topic is a very good investment of your time and energy. Everyone goes through different, very individual healing process and this may prepare you for it’s ups and downs.

Ease-In – Starting The Master Cleanse

The Ease-In step of The Master Cleanse (Pre-Diet Routine) is not as important as the Ease-Out (Post-Diet Routine). In fact, you could skip the Ease-In completely and begin directly with The Lemonade Diet at anytime. In my experience, however, beginning The Lemonade Diet with the Ease-In routine not only prepares your stomach for less food, but your mind as well.

The purpose of Easing-into the Cleanse

I find by doing the Ease-In, the first two days of the Diet are not as shocking, and the impulse to eat is therefore more manageable. It allows you to prepare your body for the dramatic change in diet as you cleanse but it will also prepare you for the next 10 days : mentally and emotionally, which can prevent you from ending the Master  Cleanse too soon. Use the 3 days of the Ease-In to gather your ingredients for the Master Cleanser Recipe.

Master_Cleanse_10_days_kit

Regardless of whether you choose to Ease-In or go right to The Lemonade Diet, your Master Cleanse Kit will contain all of your ingredients, tools, equipment, and appliances that you will need during the Master Cleanse and The Lemonade Diet. The tools and equipment of The Master Cleanse Kit are used to prepare and make the Lemonade, as well as to produce your Daily Detox Bowel Movements. The Lemonade Diet Ingredients are discussed in detail further down this page (and on The Lemonade Diet page).

Gather Your Master Cleanse Kit

Below are some other items you might consider for inclusion in your Master Cleanse Kit.

Lemon juicer

  • Laxatives (to create Daily Detox Bowel Movements)
  • Sea Salt (for The Salt Water Flush)
  • Hand Juicers or Electric Juicers
  • Teaspoon and Tablespoon Measures
  • Naturally Non-caffeinated Herbal Teas (the only cheating allowed)
  • Bio-Metric Measures (scales, ph-testers, body fat measures, and other devices to measure the results of your cleanse)
  • Journals (to document the process, emotions, challenges and triumphs during the Master Cleanse

Why should you choose to Ease – in

Starting The Master Cleanse with the Ease-in is also a good time to build your confidence and exposure to a Living Food Diet, Raw Food Diet, Green Diet, Vegetarian Diet.. or whatever you call your ideal post-cleanse, food lifestyle. I don’t see these diets as “Diets” in a strict sense. To me they are a lifestyle choices regarding the foods we eat. If the style of life you want is healthy, energetic, and long lasting then you must eliminate toxins, de-vitalized foods, processed foods, and otherwise dead-foods from your diet. Detox Diet Recipes such as these (and others), are great templates to base our daily food decisions on. We all know this deep down. The Master Cleanse, for most, is about a transition to a healthier lifestyle.

Ease-In Day 1 – Living Food Diet

Living _food_diet

To do the Living Food Diet, you only need to eat live foods. Simply remove processed foods, meat and dairy from your diet. Enjoy shopping for, and eating interesting fruits and vegetables. Savor the rich flavors and textures. Be sure that you don’t go too heavy on fruits as they are high in sugar. A 60/40 balance of vegetables to fruits is a good guideline.

Ease-In Day 2 – Juicing, Blending, Soups and Broths

Juicing_Cleansing_and_DetoxThis step preps your body for a liquid diet and delivers macro nutrients more quickly to your bloodstream. By breaking down the foods to liquids we can more readily take in the nutrients from the food.

Fruit and Vegetable Juicing is very enjoyable. There are endless combination’s of tasty juicing recipes. Blending is equally enjoyable. Green smoothies are like drinking a glass of healing. If you do not have a juicer, you can make soups or broths.

Ease-In Day 3 – Orange Juice

Manually or electrically juice enough oranges to make 2 liters of Orange Juice, mixed with water (to taste). Sometimes I find it hard to get the calories I need through the day and so I add some Maple Syrup to increase my caloric intake.

The Lemonade Diet

Lemonade-Diet

Whether you begin The Lemonade Diet immediately or Ease-In, the process of the Lemonade Diet is the same. You will however, need to make two decisions to suit your personal preferences and/or your daily work and family routines.The first Master Cleanse Variation revolves around timing your daily flush. Perhaps equally important as Ending The Master Cleanse is the Daily Detox Bowel Movement. It is crucial to flush out the toxins your body is eliminating, and since you are not consuming digestible food (fiber) to create a bowel movement, you will have to make that happen.

Smooth Move Peppermint Tea

This is why I call this process “The Daily Detox Bowel Movement”. It is this process that cleanses your body of the waste, and toxins. There are two accepted methods to produce Daily Detox Bowel Movements:

  1. Nightly Laxatives
  2. And the Salt Water Flush.

Prior to your first day on The Lemonade Diet you should have taken your Nightly Laxative. On your first full day you do not need to do the SWF so you can start drinking your Lemonade immediately upon waking.

Lemonade Diet ingredients – the Step 1

Organic_Cayenne_Pepper

Awake, and prepare your Lemonade – this is your nourishment and energy source for the day.

Soon after arising you will prepare your daily intake of Fresh Lemon Juice, Rich Maple Syrup, Cayenne Pepper and Pure Water.

Lemonade Diet Recipe

Mix each of the following lemonade diet ingredients into a large glass:

  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Rich Maple Syrup
  • 1/10 Teaspoon of  Cayenne Pepper Powder – or to taste (as much as you can stand)
  • 8 ounces (250 milliliters of Pure Water)

Little tip: Roll each lemon firmly between your palm and the counter. Put sufficient downward pressure as you rock the lemon back and forth under your hand. You are softening the lemon to make the extraction of juice more efficient.

Tips on how to make the Master Cleanse Lemonade right

  • 1. Store your lemons on the counter to ripen, NOT in the fridge. Enzymes are dormant in the fridge. You want those enzymes. If you buy 50 lemons in advance, as most people do, store 40 in the fridge at a time and take the 10 most ripe lemons out for your first day or two.
  • 2. Next, cut the lemon and juice each half on the juicer (If using an electric juicer you may want to juice the whole allotment at once, since you will not be sure how many lemons will yield the proper amount of juice. You may initially find you will waste a lemon or two).
  • 3. Add the rest of the lemonade ingredients into the glass, mix immediately, and drink. I like to drink the glass quickly because it seems to hit my hunger spot quickly. I usually only drink when I need to, and when enough time has passed to allow for a nice spread over the day as I try to manage my daily quota.
  • 4. Drink your lemonade as soon as you can after you made it (5-10 minutes after it was made). If you allow the lemonade to sit with the Cayenne pepper in it too long as it will steep. The lemonade will get too spicy and that may prevent you from drinking enough lemonade during the day.

Maple_syrup_diet

(Note: You might get a kick out of licking the tablespoon measure after adding your maple syrup. You may even come to look forward to this part of the process –just don’t “eat” the syrup in quantity).

If you are doing The Salt Water Flush, you should drink your first glass of lemonade after your first bowel movement to allow the process of elimination to begin.

The Lemonade Diet Concentrate – the most common mistake

Previously mentioned on this website was my preference to drink Pre-mix Lemonade. I now understand a critical flaw to this plan. The longer your Lemonade sits, the more enzymes die. If you need to Pre-mix your Lemonade, then you should only mix a concentrate of just 2 ingredients :

  1. The Fresh Lemon Juice
  2. And the Rich Maple Syrup.

Maple_syrup_for_the_Master_Cleanse

The maple syrup acts as a preservative. This Lemonade Diet Concentrate will keep the enzymes alive long enough to be consumed during the day. Store The Lemonade Diet Concentrate in a cool, dark, glass container. Do not add the cayenne or water to the concentrate! The cayenne will “Steep” like tea, and make the concentrate very hot. The water will dilute the maple syrup and the enzymes in the Fresh Lemon Juice will die. Add the water each time you make a fresh glass of lemonade. Learn the details about Master Cleanse Enzymes and The Lemonade Diet Concentrate because it is crucial to your success, and is a leading cause of Master Cleanse Problems.

How much Lemonade should you drink during the day?

You will drink between 6 and 12 glasses of Lemonade each day (some people drink as much as 26 glasses per day). The more you can drink, the better. I try to drink at least 8 glasses each day. This will depend on how big or small you currently are (caloric needs), your tolerance to physical and psychological urges to eat, and your desire to to lose weight.

How much weight will I loose during the Master Cleanse?

Master_Cleanse_weight_loss

Master Cleanse Weight Loss results vary according to your pre-cleanse weight, and can be managed, to a degree, by how much lemonade you drink. Obviously you can Drink more, for less weight loss, and drink less to lose more weight. It is not a wise choice to drink less than 6 glasses in an effort to lose “extra” weight. Weight loss (if any), should occur naturally. It is wise to drink whenever you’re hungry, or when you feel a lack of energy (commonly felt as a weakness or mild shakiness), which is quickly corrected by drinking a glass of Fresh Lemonade. 12 glasses per day should be your starting point from which you will make adjustments.

Use Purified Water to Make the Master Cleanse Lemonade

pure_water, Master Cleanse

I carry a 1-liter BPA-free Water Bottle filled with Pure Water with me at all times. This water will cleanse your palate of the lemonade, as well as maintain the illusion that your stomach is full. You can drink as much water as you do Lemonade. All the water you consume from (including the water in the lemonade), is a key factor in why this cleanse is so successful. Avoid chlorinated and fluorinated water.

Drink Pure Water Throughout the Day

Master_Cleanse_ bottle

Most of us are chronically dehydrated. And most of us eat when we are thirsty. Our bodies don’t understand the difference between the cravings for water and food very well. The two signals – hunger and thirst are often mis-understood. I drink as much as I can, but like anything, one shouldn’t overdo it. Every time I feel a hunger craving, I take a nice big chug of water. I believe I am turning off the switch in my physiology that is telling me that I am hungry. If I feel very hungry, or weak, I drink a glass of Lemonade.

What kind of water should I use during the cleanse?

masaru_emoto_The_hidden_messages_in_water

The quality of your water during the Master Cleanse is the key to great results.You probably know that your body uses water to flush and transport toxins to the organs of elimination ( The colon, bladder, lungs, skin and so on…) to discharge them. Latest scientific research shows that many health problems can be significantly improved, or completely eliminated, with just an adequate consumption of good water. To learn more about the healing power of water, read our recent articles on this topic.

water_filter_Master_Cleanse

We recommend 3 ways to ensure your water is pure and appropriate for the Cleanse:

  1. You can use Water Ionizer
  2. Install good Water Filter for your tap water
  3. Or check your local health-food store for Purified Bottled Water

What about distilled water?

Stanley Burroughs – The Master Cleanse founder, did not recommend using distilled water. He called it was “cooked” - completely stripped of natural minerals found in water.It is also slightly acidic.

Step 3 – Master Cleanse Detox – Induce Daily Bowel Movements.

The Master Cleanse is a Detox Diet. The Detox of The Master Cleanse Diet occurs largely through Bowel Movements. The Daily Detox Bowel Movement is the result from the Nightly Laxative, and The Salt Water Flush. The Salt Water Flush is optional but the Bedtime Laxative is not. Some choose to do a Morning Laxative as well.

Master Cleanse Detox with Herbal Laxatives

Herbal_laxative_capsules

There are several herbal laxatives that work well. Most people find that by using Laxative Tablets they are able to better manage the dosage. Often the suggested dosage is not enough to produce the movement in the morning. Tom Woloshyn, author of The Complete Master Cleanse swears that 4 tablets is a good starting point. If you cramp or wake up early with a movement, scale back to 3 tablets. If your movement doesn’t happen in the morning, scale up to 5 tablets.

I choose to do the Salt Water Flush in the evening. The SWF process is a commitment in itself. Once you take the solution, you will have to be on guard, a bowel movement WILL be coming shortly. I don’t mean in 5, or even 15 minutes, but generally in 30-60 minutes after taking the salt water, you will have your first movement. The last movements will begin to wind down an hour or so after they begin. This is a, ahem… crappy process, and there is really no way to sugar-coat it. The next few paragraphs will describe in detail what you can expect.

Master Cleanse Detox with The Salt Water Flush

Using 1 liter BPA Free Water Bottle and your teaspoon measure, mix a solution consisted of :

celtic_sea_salt

  • Sea Salt - 2 teaspoons
  • And Pure Water – 1 quart of warm water

The original book says 2 teaspoons, but I have used 1 tablespoon almost every time and it works the same for me each way. The last time I did the cleanse, I tried it each way (once with 2 teaspoons and then again with 1 tablespoon), and each time I had success.

There have been many questions about this process. Many people complain that the SWF doesn’t worked for them. This is probably the most common mistake with the master cleanse. I believe it can work for everyone, but there are no absolutes in this world. The key is to adjust the amount of salt in order to create the right solution for your individual needs.

2 Important Tips to make sure you do the Salt Water Flush right

  1. Make sure you don’t used iodized table salt. NON-iodized sea salt is essential.
  2. The Salt Water Flush MUST be done on an empty stomach.

Salt_water_flush_flush

Shake the mixture well and move to the sink. I like to “pound it” – perhaps because I like to pretend I am still in college and the sea salt is actually a keg stand. I also move into the bathroom and stand in front of the mirror. Somehow, by watching myself, I can manage to drink the whole liter in one try, spilling very little. This too is a challenge in itself, especially once your stomach has become very small from taking no solids. Chances are, you will feel full halfway through, so just keep going. Stopping only makes you taste the salt, and will activate your gag reflex. If you throw up most of the mixture, you will not have success. Do whatever it takes to get it down, and keep it down.

While it is not required to drink the solution in one go, you will find that the taste is such that you will want to get it down quickly. It is not awful, but it is not exactly pleasant, and therefore I choose to get it over with. I also enjoy the little challenge. Many people have submitted their Salt Water Flush Tips that range from sipping the mixture through a straw or adding lemon juice to the mixture.

After you have consumed the solution, you can go about your activities until nature calls. Laying on your right hand is side to aid the solution on its journey through your digestive track, although I don’t find this especially helpful and so I don’t bother.

What to Expect from The Salt Water Flush

Salt_water_Flush

When you first feel the rumble in your belly and your bowels, DON’T go running off to the bathroom. Give it a while. Let it brew! Yeah, I know that is weird to think about, but you should let it build up. You are going to have 3-7 movements, possibly more. Generally speaking, you will end up pushing out what you put in. The entire liter of sea salt water will be immediately expelled. This is because the solution is indigestible. You may have heard that, if you are stranded at sea, drinking sea water will only dehydrate you more. This is why. It just comes right out of you because the mixture is such that it is not absorbed.

What to do when the Salt Water Flush didn’t work

Salt_Water_Flush_not_working

If your mixture is off or it doesn’t work (check to see if you have the right kind of salt. Did you do it on an empty stomach?), don’t worry. The amount of salt you just consumed is far less than your “regular”, modern diet. All is well. Just try again the next day with an adjustment in the amount of salt. I suggest adding little more salt to the amount of 2 teaspoons until you are successful.

Of course, along with the sea salt, you will be expelling waste. During the first 2 days you will be moving out the remaining solid matter in the digestive tract from the days prior to the Master Cleanse. If you began your diet immediately, this will be more true than if you Eased-in, and therefore have only juice in your system. Nevertheless, for each day you will expel solid matter. Gross, to be certain, but also empowering. You really begin to understand the value of this process when you recognize the elimination of waste that has been stored in your body for months, even decades.

Salt Water Flush Tips

Can’t stand the taste of Salt Water Flush? Here are some simple tips to get that ” sucker” down.

Letting go of the toxins

Salt_Water_Flush_Master_Cleanse

Your eliminations will be MOSTLY liquid from now on. You will only notice smaller material and clumps of thicker waste. Don’t expect large solid movements of any kind. You should be encouraged that even on day-10 you still have dark liquid in your first movements of the day. All the dark matter is retained waste that the cleanse is loosening and removing.

Once you feel you can no longer hold out, go to the bathroom. A word of warning while you wait for this moment. DO NOT FART!!! You will most certainly not pass only air – if you know what I mean. This is also true throughout the rest of your day. Don’t be fooled or you will be leaving work to change your shorts. The first movement will be rather large and fairly powerful. You will want to flush almost immediately. In order to understand the whole messy details, take a look… if you dare.

Stay close to a toilet and continue to move until the frequency eases. Once you can last 15 minutes without a serious movement, you are safe to go about your day. For this reason I choose to undergo this process in the morning, before I go out for the day.

Lemonade Diet Conclusion – Repeating the Process

Master_Cleanse_10_days

That concludes the process of The Lemonade Diet. Just repeat for every day of your intended duration. Most Master Cleanse Practitioners won’t recommend less than 10 days. 10 days is a great achievement and will produce far better results as your body can really begin to focus on the deep and dark within. 14 days is very challenging and when added to the Ease-in and Ease-out is almost 3 weeks in total. I have heard of, and known, people who go for 30 and more.

How long should I do the Cleanse for?

Tom Woloshyn claims the longest he has heard of is 372 days straight with the second longest being 256. Some people do “Cleanse Stacks” where they will do 10 days followed by some regular eating and quickly going back on for another 10 days as many as 5 times. My suggestion is that 2 weeks is more than enough. There are reasons for Long Term Master Cleansing such as Disease Cleansing, but that topic is far outside of the scope of this article.

Ease-Out – Stopping The Master Cleanse

The Ease-out process of The Master Cleanse is the exact same as the Ease-In, but in reverse. This is also another reason I choose to do the Ease-In – it prepares me for the Ease-Out. You will be tempted to fast-track this process, but DON’T.

Why is the Ease – out so important?

Juicing_Living_food_diet

Consider this step as ESSENTIAL. You can become nauseated if you start to eat too soon. Please don’t underestimate the importance of this process. On the other hand, don’t be scared of it either. You do risk some serious constipation or some of the worse Complications of The Master Cleanse – but if you eat something too soon, you will likely be okay in the long run. If you are unsure at any time – consult a doctor. My words here are opinion only, and should always be considered informational not medical advice.

Here is a quote from Tom Woloshyn’s book The Complete Master Cleanse On the Easing – out :  ” The important transition period of moving from lemonade to food will prepare your digestive system for more and more complex foods so that it does not become overwhelmed. Just as you wouldn’t try running a marathon after being a couch potato for three years, you wouldn’t brake a cleanse by launching into full-feasting mode. You want your digestive system to get well-deserved brake so that your body can start back on the right track. ”

Lemonade_Diet_water

The most important factor to keep in mind during this stage of The Master Cleanse is to drink a lot of water. Especially when you are Fruit Juicing and Vegetable Juicing. If you do not make broth, and opt for juices instead, it is important you understand that the juice will have a great deal of fiber, and you need to make sure you have enough water in your system to keep you from becoming constipated.

Ease-Out Day 1 – Orange Juice

Manually or electrically juice enough oranges to make 2 liters of Orange Juice, mixed with water (to taste). Sometimes I find it hard to get the calories I need through the day and so I add some Maple Syrup to increase my caloric intake.

Ease-Out Day 2 – Juicing, Blending, Soups and Broths

Juicing_ Master_Cleanse

This step preps your body for a liquid diet and delivers macro nutrients more quickly to your bloodstream. By breaking down the foods to liquids we can more readily take in the nutrients from the food. Fruit and Vegetable Juicing is very enjoyable. There are endless combination’s of tasty juicing recipes. Blending is equally enjoyable. Green smoothies are like drinking a glass of healing. If you do not have a juicer, you can make soup or broths.

Ease-Out Day 3 – Living Food Diet

Healthy_lifeastyleTo do the Living Food Diet, you need only to eat live foods. Simply remove processed foods, meat and dairy from your diet.

Enjoy shopping for, and eating interesting fruits and vegetables. Savor the rich flavor and textures. Be sure that you don’t go to heavy on fruits as they are high in sugar. A 60/40 balance of vegetables to fruits is a good guideline.

Post Cleanse – After The Master Cleanse – Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle

Going-Raw-book

When you are done The Master Cleanse, the next and maybe most important step is to begin to Eat Wisely. This sounds so simple, yet so many people go right back to eating emotionally to sooth their daily worries. Choose to Eat Wisely and you will not put the weight back on. If you go back to Eating Poorly, you will gain back all the weight you just lost – and maybe more!

Make sure to start taking Probiotics after you finished the Cleanse. It is very important to replenish the good bacteria in your body that has been flushed out during the Cleansing process. The word “probiotic” means “for life.” Probiotics are good bacteria that provides many health benefits and are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion.

Now You KNOW How To Master Cleanse

So now what? What’s Next?

  1. Pick Your Start Date
  2. Get Your Master Cleanse Kit
  3. Get Your After Master Cleanse Kit
  4. Join The Group Cleanse and Social Channels for Support and Fun!
  5. Lose Weight & Feel Great

Pick Your Start Date

In our experience, Friday’s are great days for starting the Ease-In, leaving the following Monday for you to begin your Lemonade Diet. Strategically this makes your starting weekend a hybrid of cleanse and food. This also leaves the Ease-Out to fall prior to the end of the second week, and ultimately only 1 full weekend while on the Lemonade Diet. This helps substantially with people’s work and social schedules.

Finally, choosing your seasonal selection is also important. Look at your calendar and and notice major events like National Holidays, and personal events like weddings, graduations, etc. Find the first opportunity that you have 2 weeks off following one of these events. You can then really dig in and enjoy your last indulgences and get ready for a fresh start free from any of the pitfalls and temptations that these events are certain to cause.

Get Your Master Cleanse Kit

There are 3 parts to your Master Cleanse Kit. Part 2, Lemons, of course are perishable. So you should try to get those locally, although Amazon.com will deliver Fresh Lemons directly to your door, along with the readily available non-perishable ingredients making up part of The Master Cleanse Kit including Maple Syrup, Cayenne Pepper, Sea Salt, and Laxative Teas or Laxative Pills. Part 3 of your Master Cleanse Kit might include the equipment or accessories you might need like a hand juicer, tablespoon measures and water bottles. All of these items can be found on Amazon.com, where we suggest you get your kit, saving you the effort of sourcing all these items independently.

Get Your After Master Cleanse Kit

It’s so important to over-look what to do “After” the Master Cleanse. After-all, just start eating again right? Naturally, following the Ease-In, if done right and transitioned into Eating Healthy, we’ll rebuild naturally over time. During The Master Cleanse, we’ve strategically reduced intake of certain nutrients,  like Protein, Fats, and a select group of Vitamins where sidelined for a few days. Now it’s time to rebuild. We have to rebuild our internal flora, using Probiotics. We should supplement our Vitamins and Nutrients with a Plant Based, and natural Multivitamin, and finally we should rebuild our Amino Acids and Proteins using an all natural Whey Protein.

Join the Group Cleanse for Support and Fun!

Now that you’re committed, why not join our Group Cleanse. Hundreds of people do one of 4 scheduled Group Cleanses after the major holidays, but there are also Independent Group Cleanse with dozens of participants on any given day of the year.

Lose Weight & Feel Great – Like Dr. Wayne Dyer Did

Yes The Master Cleanse is about Cleanse and Detox, but many of you are for the Weight Loss. Well, great news! As a reduction diet, The Master Cleanse is beyond compare. Be prepared to lose up to 2 lbs per day as fat melts away. Please note, that this is not typical, and results definitely vary. You’ll only lose weight if your body feels you need to. Some people, especially those underweight or malnourished can sometimes put on weight. Most people however, carrying extra weight in fat, will see dramatic, fast, and natural weight loss.

Last but not least, the Cleanse and Detox is a Whole Body experience. You’ll not only feel great about how you look, but you’ll be more aware, proud, and empowered with your ability to be confident, committed in your new healthy lifestyle. Not to mention the famous “Cleansers” High most notably touted by Dr. Wayne Dyer, who proclaims:

I feel great and taken weight off around my middle. It’s just kinda disappeared. I have lost 14 or 15 pounds I have more energy. I am doing yoga again. I am back walking. I was having real issues with my back. Joint pains and things like that seem to have all gone. I have a new kind of clarity as well.

Happy Cleansing everyone and Thank you for visiting our website! We hope to see you here soon again.

      Hi Monique,
      How is it going? Did you make it through today?

    Lemonade Diet Day 1 – I was told about this diet and I had tried it before. I was doing it with someone the last time and they just told me about the lemonade and how to make it. Nothing about easing in or out nor the herbal laxative. I made it about 4 days or so and gave in. Technically this is my first time on my own and I want to do it right. Now that I am retrying I found this website and of course I didn’t ease in plus I bought the wrong tea I have the Detox tea by the makers of Smooth Move. I won’t be able to get the Smooth Move tea until Monday. I saw something on this website about start with the salt water flush for the first few days and then you can switch to the tea but that isn’t what the directions read so I’m asking. Is it okay for me to start the salt water flush this evening as I have only purchased the lemons, syrup and cayenne and then start the tea on Monday? Also, I had to either get Grade B 100% Maple or Grade A Organic Syrup. Did I make the right choice getting the Grade B or should I switch that on Monday and just start then? Except the notation I made above, I have researched my questions to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If I dont have a juicer can I use Naked Juice as a substitute?
    is it ok to freeze the juice until I want to use it?

    I am a high school student.. is this smart for my busy life and being in school with merciless teachers? I wouldn’t mind doing it except for the detox part..makes me nervous..makes my tummy growl “noo.”

    So one should drink the Lemonade for 14 days, but how long do you ease-in and ease-out?? I DEFINITELY am not skipping those steps.

    21 Day Master Cleanse Update: I have reached the 40 day mark since I completed my last master cleanse.

    I’m still managing to stay 100% raw (with a restaurant snafu of blanched carrots, some sesame seeds that came with a seaweed salad, some toppings that I had to hand pick from another salad and finally some dressing that I got at the healthfood store that contained toated sesame seed).

    I am keeping a video blog for anyone who’d like to see how things are going.

    Peace

    I am very eager to try this, but I have one concern.
    I’m fructose intolerant and worried what the maple syrup will do to me if that is all I’m having for 12 days. Even Molasses has sugar that I cannot have. Is there another alternative that I can use instead of these 2 that will not affect me?
    Or do you know anyone who has done this diet that is fructose intolerant and has had little to no issues with it ?
