I’ve been asked numerous times what the recipe is for the lemonade diet or lemonade fast. I’ve partially included it on day 1 of my experience with the lemonade diet. However this doesn’t have all the details such as how to make the Salt Water Flush or what type of tea one should drink at night.
If you’ve never heard of the lemonade diet, basically it is a 10-day fast where you drink nothing but a special “lemonade” drink. It is one of the best known methods for cleaning out your intestinal and colon walls. Although not intended as a weight-loss diet, it is effective at helping you balance your body and “rebooting” the metabolic process – which often results in weight loss (I lost around 10 lbs on this). *If you are looking instead for primarily weight/fat loss I would highly recommend the Burn the Fat Program (plus you can view my results). I had a lot of success with its principles.
Well here goes:
Lemonade Diet Recipe
For at least 10 days, drink around 10 servings/day of the following:
- 2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice NOT BOTTLED JUICE!! (approx. 1/2 lemon),
- 2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup,
- 1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper (hot red pepper), and
- 1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water, NOT fluoridated water.
(This is what I did) This is the equivalent of taking an empty gallon water jug and filling it with:
- the juice of 5 lemons
- 1 1/4 cup of organic Grade B maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 10 cups of water
Shake it all up and you got your days’ serving!
Salt-Water Flush Recipe
Upon rising drink a mixture of:
- 2 level teaspoons of uniodized sea salt to a…
- quart of lukewarm water
Herbal Laxative Tea (You can find this at most grocery stores)
Each evening drink an herbal laxative tea to help with elimination – preferably right before bed.
That’s it! Do that for at least ten days for a complete intestinal cleanse. If you haven’t read my experience with the 10-day lemonade diet, check it out here. Or if you just want to read about the final results you can go directly to the 10th day of the lemonade diet.
