For a minimum of 10 days, drink this mixture (a minimum of six to twelve glasses) daily. No food is eaten nor any vitamin supplements taken during the cleanse.

  • 2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)
  • 2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup
  • 1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper
  • 1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water

If you get hungry (which I can only imagine you would), have another glass.

Yum. A look on the bright side, imagine how much money you will save in groceries.

Fit's Tip: If you are looking to try this diet, I suggest buying the book Master Cleanser ($6.50). There is a lot more to it and buying the book provides support for any questions (including vital information for anyone with Type 2 diabetes trying the diet, ahem I mean cleanse). Buy the book here. The Lemonade Diet ($16.95) is just the newer version of the book and you can buy that here.
