About the Lemonade Diet
This diet was published in the 1940s by Stanley Burroughs. It is a detox plan that replaces all meals with a lemonade, maple syrup and cayenne pepper drink accompanied by a saltwater flush or a laxative.
You are asked to take the lemonade concoction for about 6-12 times in a day. It should be done whenever you're feeling weak or hungry. Once a day you are also asked to take in a laxative or do a saltwater flush to aid in eliminating waste. Water is allowed to be taken at any time. This detox can last for as long as you want it, although it is generally recommended to span for 14 days. If you decide to go off the diet, then you would need to undergo the ease-out phase by doing the ease-in in reverse.
This is a fast, effective, and affordable diet. Due to the fact that you take in very little calories makes it so efficient that you're sure to lose as much weight as possible in a short amount of time. This diet is also a detox meaning it claims to get rid of your body's impurities. People have reported improved digestion and a healthier feeling after the detox. Mentally, the detox has also helped people review their relationship with food and, upon ending the diet, have managed to control their eating and regulate their food choices.
People who are under the lemonade diet have reported cases of nausea, dizziness, fatigue and dehydration which could impede daily functions. If no lifestyle changes are made after the diet is done, weight gain is almost guaranteed.
