The Master Cleanse is a very peculiar diet that is being revamped by Peter Glickman, who is the author of Loose Weight, Have More Energy, and be Happier in Ten Days. It is different than almost every other diet because there is no acceptable food to eat during the diet. One may only drink a mix of Lemon Juice, Cayenne Pepper and Maple Syrup.

The vast majority of dieting is exercising intense self control of cravings for specific food or taking a substitute for your cravings. The idea behind this diet is to eliminate the craving altogether by drinking the special Lemonade. Some people drink up to 26 glasses of the Lemonade for each of the days they are on the diet. The prescribed amount to start with is 12 glasses a day. Then, you take a laxative tea for planned bowel movements to clean out your system.

The Master Cleanse starts with an “Ease In” process and ends with an “Ease Out” process. The “Ease In” process is not mandatory but helpful. One prepares physically and mentally for going without food for a small period of time. The process usually lasts no longer than three days. The diet itself can last as long as you would like it to last. The “Ease Out” process helps your system get back into the swing of things without being overwhelmed.

List of Ingredients

The only thing one needs to gather up for this diet is Lemon juice, Ceyenne Pepper, Maple Syrup and pure water. There is a laxative tea as well if one desires to take their laxative that way.

Product Features

There are no features since this is not a product but a method. You buy your own ingredients and participate in your own time. There is no company that sells this idea.
