What Cheating is Permitted?

Organic herbal teas may be consumed. You can also suck on the pulp of one of the lemons you use to make the juice. Try taking a small dose of maple syrup alone, just to get the sweet taste unaltered by the cayenne and the lemons. Sometimes, that can be all you need to fight off psychological cravings.

    Lemonade Diet–Day 5

    I finally hit the fifth day of the cleanse, which is supposed to end the two hardest days, which are 3 & 4. Those two days for me were so tough, but I managed to not cheat and stick to it. One thing that really made those days hard was the psychological effect of only drinking the lemonade. Let’s face it, it gets very monotonous and yes, disgusting! However, I developed on day 2 which has really helped as far as downing the actual lemonade. Go out and buy empty shells of vitamin capsuls. I found mine at a vitamin shop, and I’ve seen them in specialty health food stores as well–I don’t know if you would find them at a regular grocery store, but I doubt you would. Anyways, get the capsules and take your cayenne pepper and, using a measuring spoon and a small funnel (my mom fashioned one out of a post it note to fit the small opening of the capsule), start filling the capsules with the required amount of cayenne for one drink per capsule. Since these little guys dissolve very quickly in liquid, it is safe to take them with the lemonade, which will now only have the lemon and syrup. This has made things so much easier for me, since I can imagine that I am drinking actual lemonade or some other flavored drink. I also found that I like the taste of limes better as they are not as bitter to me, and they help alleviate the feeling of drowning in lemons and syrup all day.
    As far as the psychological frustration of no eating, I found that you just have to press through and keep reminding yourself that you will be eating in the end, and a few days of this is ultimately benefitting your body. I like the backwards count down. Instead of saying I’m only on day 3, for instance, I said I only had 7 days left. Looking at a calendar helped me get a visual and see my progress as well. Hope this helps and good luck on your journey! You can do it!

    What about raw juice from organic young coconuts?
    This is definitely considered a superfood and has many benefits. I often drink it when feeling dehydrated or just ‘not right’. It has more electrolytes than anything else you can drink, and it seems like it might be a good way to ensure your body is maintaining proper electrolyte balance. This seems like it might be an acceptable addition – maybe once a day or every other day? I’m wondering what you think?
