What You Should Know
The Lemonade Diet is pretty much self explanatory when it comes down to working out what it actually is. The Lemonade Diet basically involves bypassing certain meals of the day and replacing them with glasses of lemonade that has been mixed with cayenne pepper and syrup. Generally the crash diet will last for about twelve days and has been referred to by some people as a master cleanse.
Many people would fight against the claim that this is a “fad diet” claiming that it is not to be used as a weight loss method at all and actually is a method of cleansing the body of toxins and generally feeling better from the inside out.
Lemons, Cayenne Pepper, Maple Syrup.
There has been no scientific research to back this diet or weight loss method and also testimonials from various clients and testers of the diet have been rather mixed. Although it is not actually considered to be a weight loss method, some people have claimed that they have lost a fair bit of weight using this for the twelve day period but this is probably due to the fact that the body is simply not getting enough calories and is therefore looking to fat reserves to survive.
The Lemonade Diet, reportedly started by a man called Mr. Burroughs has become increasingly popular with many celebrities turning to this as a way to shape up before a big event but what is not known are other weight loss methods that they are using at the same time.
There is no one official website for the lemonade diet but the ones we looked at suggested replacing one or two meals per day with lemonade. Some sites even encourage only lemonade for 12 days but that seems unhealthy and very hard to keep up with.
- Lemonade is pretty refreshing.
- Lemons are pretty cheap.
- You may be very hungry a lot of the time while using the lemonade diet.
- Lemonade doesn’t contain very many important nutrients that your body needs.
- The lemonade diet seems like a very short term weight loss solution.
The Lemonade Diet will probably help you lose weight quickly while helping your body eliminate a lot of toxins. The problem is, you will be pretty hungry all day long even if you eat one huge meal along with this diet. The only real calories in this diet comes from the maple syrup you pour into each glass of lemonade. Similar in function to water fasting, the diet resembles a starvation plan or detox plan rather than a weight loss plan.
