Losing weight by using a proven cleanse and dieting program while not easy, isn’t as hard as you may have thought. A lot of it comes down to the level of preparation you allow yourself. The longer you get your head around the concept and the more steps you take to prepare yourself physically the greater your chances of success. When you are mixing up the cleanse ingredients you can do it by the glassful or the pitcher full.
Here is the recipe for master cleanse.
• To make a full pitcher so that you can keep the mixture cool and readily available in your refrigerator:
• 12 Tablespoons each of fresh lemon juice and organic maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder, 60 ounces of water.
To make a glass at a time:
• 1/2 Tablespoon each of lemon juice and maple syrup, 1/16 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder and 8 ounces of water.
That’s it, pretty simple isn’t it? Even though the recipes are simple that doesn’t mean staying on a liquid only diet for a full ten days will be simple. It can be very challenging and don’t be surprised if you can’t do it, especially on your first attempt.
Mental and physical preparation can help a lot. By simply cutting down on your caloric intake a little bit a few days before the cleanse you can greatly improve your odds. It’s also a good idea to give yourself a few days before the cleanse to ‘get your head around it’. Don’t decide today that you’re going to cleanse and then expect to jump into it tomorrow and be successful. You might be, but the odds aren’t in your favor.
It’s also imperative that you ask your doctor if you can do this cleanse. I’m not a doctor and can’t give medical advice, only your doctor knows you and your medical history and can council you on whether or not this is a safe course of action.
If your doctor says to go for it here are the basics: you will drink this mixture for your daily meals. Make sure you also drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. You can expect to lose upwards of 10 to 20 pounds during the ten day cleanse (don’t get disappointed if you gain a few pounds back after the cleanse since a little bit of the weight loss will be water weight).
You will also be ridding your body of potentially deadly toxins that have built up over years. If your doctor says it’s ok you can repeat the cleanse once a month to keep your body clean and toxin free.
If you are disciplined and committed enough to get through the cleanse you can really kick start your weight loss efforts and detoxify your body at the same time. Since the recipe for master cleanse is easy to prepare and the ingredients are easy to find, you’ve really got no excuses, as long as your doc says it’s ok.
