The Cayenne Pepper Diet is really just The Lemonade Diet, or more commonly called The Master Cleanse. The term Cayenne Pepper Diet is also synonymous with The Maple Syrup Diet, Beyonce Diet and various forms of these words with the word "Cleanse" in it.
Regardless of what you call it, the Cayenne Pepper in the Cayenne Pepper Diet is so critical to The Master Cleanse and Lemonade Diet that it is no surprise that it is sometimes called the Cayenne Pepper Diet.
After all Cayenne Pepper is a Super Food. It's a vegetable that is dried and ground into a powder of a specific type of red pepper. Still, many people refer to cayenne pepper as a herb. In fact, many herbologists and herbalists say that Cayenne Pepper is The Master Herb. Perhaps this is where Stanley Burroughs came up with the name "The Master Cleanser" because it uses the Master Herb; Cayenne Pepper. Then again, maybe that's why people call it the Cayenne Pepper Diet.
Capsaicin - The Cayenne Pepper Diet Secret Weapon
Capsaicin is the most critical component in Cayenne Pepper and it is what gives it the spicy taste that we either love or hate. Sometimes it can be so powerful that handling the ground cayenne requires gloves. So, needless to say, I wouldn't recommend making the mistake that the Cayenne Pepper Diet should be understood as a diet that is comprised solely of cayenne pepper. Now that would be a hot diet.
Cayenne Pepper has many wonderful properties. It is a stimulant which raises the metabolism (something that is important when not digesting food). It increases circulation, which is very helpful when cleansing because one often feels slightly cool, likely due to the low metabolism which results from not digesting food. Cayenne Pepper also acts as a blood thinner and purifier, which can help with digestion.
Perhaps most importantly, Cayenne Pepper, like the Fresh Lemon Juice, helps to break up the mucous in our bodies. Mucous is where all our illness causing substances get trapped. This is why we get stuffed up, congested, sneeze and cough. Breaking up and eliminating this mucous is one of the major benefits of The Master Cleanse.
Like Fresh Lemon Juice, Cayenne Pepper is vitamin rich and alkalizing to the body. Sometimes people even refer to The Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet as the Cayenne Pepper Diet.
Whether you call Cayenne Pepper a herb or a food, you might now realize how essential it is to The Master Cleanse. It might even have lent the name to the "Master Cleanser" as Stanley Burroughs called it. He also called this cleanse The Lemonade Diet. Clearly two key ingredients in The Lemonade Diet are Fresh Lemon Juice and Cayenne Pepper (although the Rich Maple Syrup and Pure Water are equally important).
Cayenne Pepper Diet is a Juice Fast
The Cayenne Pepper Diet is the portion of The Master Cleanse during which you consume only the Lemonade. 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 steps of diet are : The Ease-In, The Lemonade Diet (of course), The Salt Water Flush, and the always critical, Ease-Out
It is one of the most simple, effective, and inexpensive cleansing and healing programs available.
The Cayenne Pepper Diet is a liquid monodiet (that is, one mixture only) designed to work the body's cleansing and detoxifying processes, and at the same time to nourish your body with the things it needs to function.
It's a juice fast, starve the body in order to loose weight dangerously fast.
The diet is usually done for 10 days, but can be safely maintained for many more days in a row, even weeks when desired.
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.
Cayenne Pepper Diet Recipe
To do the Cayenne Pepper Diet, mix the following into a 8 oz glass of pure water
- 2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice from one half of a Lemon
- 2 Tablespoons of Rich Maple Syrup
- 1/10 of a Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
- 1 - 2 cups of Pure Water (Alkaline Water is best, in my opinion)
While on the Cayenne Pepper Diet, you can and should drink plenty of water. You can drink more throughout the day but I like to drink 1 cup as a chaser after each cup of Lemonade but try to not drink more than double the amount of Lemonade on any given day.

What ever the name, The Master Cleanse is a phenomenom not because celebrities love it, but because it works so well and has such a profound impact on those that do it, because of the perfect combination of the ingredients doing what they are supposed to. The Cayenne Pepper is truly critical to this diet.
