The Lemonade Diet is the portion of The Master Cleanse during which you consume only the Lemonade. It is a diet in the sense that you are restricted to a certain food. The phrase “The Lemonade Diet” is often used synonymously with The Master Cleanse, but I break it down in order to describe the portion of The Master Cleanse when you consume the nutrients and energy from the Fresh Lemon Juice, Rich Maple Syrup, and Organic Cayenne Pepper.
The other sections of The Master Cleanse are :
- The Ease-In
- The Lemonade Diet (of course)
- The Salt Water Flush
- The Ease-Out
- The Post Cleanse Lifestyle.
What is the Lemonade Diet?
The Lemonade diet aka The Master Cleanse is simple yet effective way to detox your body. Here is description of this diet by one of the experts on this specific Cleanse – Tom Woloshyn:
” The master Cleanse is one of the most simple, effective, and inexpensive cleansing and healing programs available. It is a liquid monodiet (that is, one mixture only) designed to work with an complement your body’s own cleansing and detoxifying processes, and at the same time to nourish your body with the things it needs to function. It is not a true fast (one in which there is no nutrition), nor it is a means to starve the body in order to loose weight dangerously fast. The cleanse is typically done for 10 days, but can be safely maintained for many more days in a row, even weeks when desired. “
This quote is an exert from Tom Woloshyn’s book The Complete Master Cleanse.
This page is dedicated to the directions to The Lemonade Diet Recipe as well as the ingredients, expectations, problems and experiences myself and the readers of this website have encountered.
The Lemonade Diet begins with preparing the Lemonade. During the diet, you will only consume the Lemonade that you make each day. In order to ensure that it is fresh and will retain as much of the nutrients and energy as possible, you should prepare the Lemonade just moments before drinking it.

- 1 large cup to mix your lemonade in
- 1 Tablespoon Measure
- 1/10 Teaspoon Measure
- Cutting Board
- Sharp knife
- Juicer (Hand juicer or Power juicer)
You’ll need a Lemonade Kit
Start by rolling a Lemon on the cutting board to get it nice and juicy. Cut the lemon along its belly and grind it on the juicer. Do this until you have juiced half your lemons, or until you have no more room in your juicer.
- Measure 2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice into your large cup.
- Now measure and at 2 Tablespoons of Rich Maple Syrup to the cup.
- Measure and add 1/10 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper to the cup (or more to taste).
- Mix a and drink immediately.
While on the Lemonade Diet, you can and should drink plenty of Pure Water. I drink 1 cup as a chaser after each cup of Lemonade. You can drink more throughout the day. Try to avoid drinking more than double the amount of Lemonade each day.
Drinking enough water helps to wash out the toxins being released into your bood stream and out of your body during the cleanse. It also helps to prevent possible headaches as well as feeling of hunger or cravings that surface during the detox.
