March 13, 2018 § Leave a comment
The Master Cleanse Diet, also called ‘Lemon Detox’, has been around for decades. It was originally made popular by nutritionist Stanley Burroughs, a strong advocate of a natural approach to health and one of the first to promote the idea that the body has the natural ability to heal itself.
In this first part of a 3-part series about the lemon detoxification program, we will introduce you to a method that will result in great health benefits.
The results encountered with the Lemon Detox were simply extraordinary. There have been instances of problems associated with chronic disease, some of which have been suffering for years, disappeared in just 10 days.
The Lemon Detox involves drinking a lemon juice mixture that will help your body eliminate waste that has accumulated over time. There is more to it, and we will explain it in detail later on in this article, but you should know that it is a safe and effective way to achieve a balanced health. It’s also a great way to lose weight fast and a great start off point to a much healthier diet and lifestyle.
Doing the Lemon Detox can help you lose weight by eliminating internal waste. The number of pounds lost varies a lot from one person to another, but for some, the number can be huge. But the real benefits in terms of weight loss appear once you have completed the detox program. After finishing the Lemon Detox, most people find that they don’t have to force themselves to eat better; refusing unhealthy food becomes natural. In fact, processed foods high in calories will make you sick. You will suddenly crave for foods rich in nutrients, such as raw vegetables. Your appetite will also adapt, requiring less foods to feel satiated.
Why you need to detox your body?
We poison ourselves slowly. The food we eat is covered with pesticides and there are chemicals in the water we drink. In some cities, the air is so saturated with pollutants during certain days that authorities recommend staying home. Not eliminating the environmental poisons that accumulate in your body could even rob you of a couple years. It could also mean a lifetime of chronic pain, fatigue, obesity, and a plethora of other health issues. A Lemon Detox can help eliminate waste accumulated in your body. To better understand the Lemon Detox, you must first understand that it is based on detoxification.
Put simply, your body is filled with a lot of garbage that is very difficult for your system to eliminate normally. At this very moment, many people are walking with kilos of dense fecal matter piled up in their bowels. These are perfect breathing grounds for bacteria to proliferate, and if you do not eliminate this, you can slowly poison yourself. You will begin to have symptoms such as skin issues, extreme fatigue and loss of libido.
Here’s the source of this slow poisoning:
- Processed foods
- Saturated fats and trans fats
- Artificial sweeteners
- No or very few raw vegetables
- Toxins associated with alcohol, coffee and smoking
- Not enough water
Through heavy branding and marketing, modern eating habits have evolved to become a bad combination of overly sugary, fatty and salty foods that overwhelm the body. Add too little water and the horrible life style habits that we’ve come accustomed to around the world, such nights out drinking, coffee and too little sleep, the results are disastrous. This is where the Lemon Detox comes into play. Although this may be reminiscent of something that a heavy drinker would use to unwind, it is really only about helping your body to free itself from this waste.
Following the Detox Lemon could result in the following:
- Increase your energy levels
- Help you to break your bad habits
- Flush your body of harmful toxins
- Promote weight loss through increased energy levels and a faster metabolic rate
- Strengthen your immune system and protect you against diseases. Detoxification will reset your body.
In part 2 of this 3-part series, we will explore how to go about the Lemon Detox programme.
