Have you ever heard of the “Master Cleanse?” This is also called the “Lemonade Diet,” and it’s supposed to help you shed pounds fast. But is it healthy and safe?

Basically, the Master Cleanse is nothing but a juice fast. Following this diet can help you “wash out” the toxins from the body and also lose some weight.

It’s also known as the “lemonade diet” because the cleansing juice you’ll drink tastes like lemonade. It contains lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and pure maple syrup, the all-natural kind.

But how does this diet work? Well, you would have to fast for 10 whole days and “cleanse” your body by only drinking liquids.  Whenever you feel hungry, you can drink the cleansing juice. Then you also drink a laxative tea before you go to bed then a salt water flushes each morning before starting the day.

According to the official Master Cleanse site, this diet will remove so many toxins from your body. However, a lot of experts don’t agree. They see the cleanse as nothing more than a way people starve themselves for a couple of days, which makes them shed the weight. So until now, the health and safety of the diet remain debatable.

So if you’re planning to go on this diet, it’s best to learn all you can about it so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.
