Answer by In Science we trust
Detoxing is a myth (not to be confused with physician supervised drug detoxification). It is an idea that was never backed by science but by companies selling scam products. Look into it through reputable sources of information and don’t waste your money. Just eat healthy, exercise and your body takes take of foreign and undesirable substances on its own.

Answer by Katy D
when you cleanse your body by fasting your body’s reaction is to think there’s a low food supply and you’re starving it begins to lower your metabolism and save your body fat, so it can survive longer. once you’re done with the cleanse the best thing to do is only eat veggies and fruits the first day back, add some breads to the fruits and veggies the second, add protein to your meals on the third day off your cleanse, slowly bring back more calories into your diet, so you don’t put on weight. large quantaties of green tea will help speed up your metabolism

Answer by Ryan B
The body has miraculous powers to cleanse itself. Unfortunately much of what we consume in the western world has limited nutritional value. Numerous chemicals and toxins are introduced into environment everyday and find their way into our bodies through the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. The Lemon Detox lets the body cleanse itself naturally while you take a break from solid food.

The Detox Drink

To make one glass of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink take

*

Two small tablespoons (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup.
*

Two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon). Use fresh lemons, not lemon drink or concentrate.
*

Half a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger (adjust to taste).

Mix the ingredients and dilute with half a pint of hot or cold water.

Drink as much as you like, ideally 6 to 9 glasses a day.

The main challenge of the programme is mental. Because we are accustomed to eating whenever we feel like it, the discipline of not taking any solid food can seem a bit daunting. Eating has become a habit and like any other habits it’s not so easy to break, even temporarily. It is often very tempting to cheat during the detox. Don’t give in to temptation. Stick to it! Be strong! When you experience hunger simply treat yourself to another Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink. Keep thinking of all the benefits you will achieve when you have finished the Lemon Detox Diet and can enjoy solid food again.

Question by sparkles.: Whats wrong with going on the Lemon Detox diet?
I’m planning to go on it BUT I wil leat. I’m not doing the whole “starve yourself” thing. But should I, or shouldnt i eat? whats wrong with going on a diet like this? Im just looking for a quick solution.

Answer by ChemoAngel
Because it is unhealthy. There are NO Quick Fixes. Diet Right, or Don’t Diet at all! Portion Control, it’s easy and anyone can do it. It’s a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. Why lose it all, and then gain it back? That’s just silly, and depressing.

I need help on the lemon detox diet?

Question by tina: I need help on the lemon detox diet?
i bought the organicpure maple syrup but didnt see it when i was in the store that it is grade A not grade B. i felt like i just waisted my money. can i still use it even if its grade A for the lemon detox diet?? plz help. thanks.

Answer by Kezzy Kay
Hi Tina

If it says in the plan Grade A then that’s what it means and you’re going to have to get the right grade even if it does cost you.

I’ll be honest with you and say that I don’t believe in these very restricted detox methods as it’s not a natural way for your body to work. I like to go for a more general plan and look for a program which is more natural and involves many natural foods and agents.

There are many good programs online which cost very little and because they have a plan they are relatively easy to stick to – just my opinion. Good luck!

How does the Lemon Detox Diet?

Question by crp01: How does the Lemon Detox Diet?
I was wondering how this diet actually works because I heard it helps lose weight (mostly water weight I bet) but mainly used to detox your body of all the toxins. My question is, does fat loss become easier with the usual use of healthy eating lifestyle (usually called a diet) and exercise routine to achieve after the detox diet? is it possible that fat loss comes to a halt or crawl because of all the toxins in your body?

I have checked out every diet known to man but nothing worked as effectively as acai berry. I understand they say that pills will not work, however they definitely worked for me, and they’ve been showcased on the Rachael Ray Show too. There’s a free trial happening currently at http://pitars.easyweightloss2u.info , try it, what’s the worst that could happen?
