Has anyone tried the lemon juice detox and be successful?

Question by : Has anyone tried the lemon juice detox and be successful?
I recently stumbled upon the lemon juice detox diet on the livestrong website. I am currently doing a cleanse and after I am done with the pills for this one, I want to try out the lemon juice detox. I know its just a quick fix, but It will jump start my diet as I have 30lbs to lose (or more)!

Nothing with the words “cleanse” or “detox” should be taken very seriously as a proven method of weight loss or weight management. While many people make outrageous claims about the efficacy of these programs, there is no backing in medical science to prove these claims.

The liver NATURALLY cleans the system daily — that’s what it does. The major component in all of these “cleansing” testimonials is that the people have cleaned up their diet in conjunction with these “detox” programs.

That, by nature of pure logic, will of course work. If you have a filtration system that’s working daily, and you stop adding more sludge, then naturally, the end product will be cleaner and the filter won’t have to work so hard once all the dirt and grime is gone from the source.

Cleanse/detox diets work more as a placebo for the participant, a tangible sign of committing to eating more natural foods, learning how to cook at home, and avoiding boxed frozen meals, fast food, and questionable cafeteria insta-meals.

Learning to cook and shop for natural ingredients (meaning fresh veggies that you cut up and put into your dishes yourself instead of opening a box of dried mix) will do the same thing, but without the alt-med lifestyle required.

The downside of “cleanse/detox” is that they often unnecessarily restrict certain components of a healthy diet, so while it may aid in removing the garbage from your system by mere virtue of not adding more, it also tends to prevent the intake of necessary nutrients, like protein and healthy dietary fats. They also cite ancient Asian lifestyles but completely misinterpret and misrepresent an actual Asian diet as well as the reasons why.

Miso soup is not a complete dinner for a Japanese household, and it never was. Ancient Asian populations were also wracked with poverty and constant civil war, so if there was a dietary restriction back then, it was due to necessity, not out of choice. Neither is green tea.

A sensible, balanced diet with all things in moderation may not be as much fun or exciting, but it’s what works.

Best answer:

Answer by Jackie E
You would rather not substitute the Madal Bal syrup for any other as the Madal Bal has the highest nutrient and nourishment levels. Other syrups will impede in cleansing.
A tin only cost $ 79.00 and any additional tin $ 69.00 from the website.There are stores in NZ where you can purchase. Log onto www.lemondetox.co.nz – where to buy page. I bought mine from a Ponsonby store

You may already know of the lemon detox, which is a detox diet plan aimed to cleanse your liver in order to make you feel fresh, replenished and energetic for the day.

An added effect to the detox plan is weight loss. Many people across the world are choosing to participate in their own lemon detox purely to lose weight.

Many detox diets are controversial, and the lemon diet plan is just the same.

The diet plan has ranging views over whether it is safe, yet the majority of people believe this diet plan is safe.

What is it?

The lemon detox is based on the “madal bal tree syrup” which is a syrup containing the sap of five different trees. These trees include; the maple tree, and four different varieties of a rare Asian palm tree.

These saps are different to regular syrups (such as maple syrups), as they are 100% natural, with no additives.

The addition of water, lemons, sea salt and cayenne pepper aid the detoxification process.

What does it do?:

The lemon diet takes advantage of the bodys natural cleansing process (at its best in the morning), helping your body to flush out unnatural toxins we pick up in the modern lifestyle.

The lemon detox plan also enables your body to lose weight more effectively, and this fact alone has made the lemon diet plan a big name amongst celebrities.

Is it effective?:

Many people have proven results with weight loss when undergoing a lemon diet plan (detox).

Some doctors advise the use of a lemon diet, yet some do not, however it is known across the world for its effectiveness and is used by a rapidly increasing number of people.

Where to buy?:

Health stores usually sell the madal bal syrup, you can pick up spring water, lemons, sea salt and cayenne pepper from your local supermarket or grocery store.
