Question by FreeCheese: *Sigh* Oh, Beyonce… Why do people think the “lemon cleanse”/”detox diet”/whatever will hepl them?
There is absolutely NO scientific evidence backing this “diet” causing weight loss OR any type of cleansing and almost all of the weight people lose on it is soon regained. Is it because people lose so much water weight they get excited? Because of the promise of the “quick fix” everyone seems to think is possible? Is it because of all the scam ads going around trying to profit on people’s (unrealistic) hope for the instant gratification of weight loss? REAL studies have shown that the only active effect on people this diet gives is the PLACEBO EFFECT along with loss of muscle and water weight. The percentage of weight that is muscle lost on this diet is ridiculous. It seems to the single most asked about diet on here, sadly. I hope this doesn’t have to do with the spam bots on this board who will randomly answer any question (even about weight gain, lol) with, “Try the detox!” Please do heavy research from multiple sources before considering this diet, and look at both points of view.

Ah yes! The “Beam me up Scottie” mentality. I will magically appear on board the mother ship in a new a slimmer body where I will grab an after dinner pizza and a little desert.
