This simple lemon diet was popularized by singer Beyonce Knowles who announced at the Oprah Winfrey Show that she lived on a lemon diet with cayenne pepper and maple syrup and lost 20 pounds (9 kgs) in two weeks.

Originally developed by Stanley Burroughs, this lemon diet is designed to cleanse your body of toxins, the major benefit being rapid weight loss.

This diet can be resorted to by someone who has to attend a social function in a couple of weeks and need to lose a lot of weight to look their best for the event.

Although weight loss is predominantly based on your activity level and your calorie intake, increasing the amount of consuming certain foods can make your metabolism burn at a faster rate.

Simple Lemon Diet

You will need:

  • Water (Alkaline Water is best, in my opinion)
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Cayenne pepper

Instructions:

1. Lemon diet should be followed on a clear schedule. This diet is not suitable for a vacation or during a hectic period. Thus it should be undertaken in a relaxed manner, preferably at home or close to home.

2. Mix 12-14 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and 12-14 tablespoons of maple syrup in 2 litres of water. This mixture is enough to last for the whole day.

3. Keep sipping small amounts of this mixture during the day whenever you feel hunger pangs. The mixture can be followed with plain water, if necessary.

4. Make a salt water flush by mixing 1 tablespoon sea salt in 1 litre of water and drink it all at once. It might seem difficult but it yields better results.

The major reason for following this diet at home is because within an hour of drinking the salt water flush, one will experience a bowel movement lasting for about 30 to 60 minutes. It is more preferable to prepare the salt water flush in the evening.

5. This diet should be followed for 3 to 10 days by drinking the same amount of lemon mixture and salt water flush each day.

Food Combination with the Lemon Diet

While following this diet, no solid food is allowed. It calls for 6 or more servings of the specialized lemonade mixture everyday.

1. Only fruits and vegetables should be consumed on the first day of the diet.

2. Drink 3 litres of orange juice with 2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup in it during the second day. Decide the period of detox. Most people detox for 2 days during which they can only consume 2 litres of lemonade per day when they feel hunger pains.

3. Drink a mixture of 3 litres of orange juice and 2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup during the first day after you have finished detoxing.

4. Fruits and vegetables (preferably raw) should be consumed on the second day after completion of detox.

5. Fruits, vegetables and non-processed foods can be eaten during the third day after stopping of detox. This should be followed by grains such as brown rice and oats to ease you back into your regular diet.

This diet should not be followed for a period of more than 2 weeks. In case of health issues, consult the doctor before following the diet.
