The Lemonade Diet, also called the Master Cleanse, is a liquid only meal plan consisting of two things; a lemonade like beverage, an herbal laxative tea for the first 10 days. You can't have any solid food, and you can't drink alcohol.
Does it Work?
Because you're getting so few calories, you'll probably lose weight. You'll also be losing muscle, bone and water. I don't consider it an effective weight loss method, you are likely to gain the weight right back.
There's no proof that detoxifying leads to long -term weight loss. Plus, you don't need to detox your body if you are eating healthy your liver takes care of that.
For lasting change, you're better off eating a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats like avocado.
What is your Level of Effort: HIGH
You'll likely be hungry on such a strict diet. Should expect detox symptoms like cravings, tiredness, boredom, and headaches.
You must follow the diet exactly or it won't work and can leave you feeling tired, sick achy, and with cravings.
Cooking and shopping: You need very few ingredients, and prep work is quick. You can make the drink ahead of time and stash it in the fridge.
No Packaged foods or meals: but I have use https://www.facebook.com/GrabbagreenJacksonville/ to deliver my juice.. saved all the work. :-)
