Maple Syrup Diet Gained Popularity

Maple Syrup Diet is also called the Master Cleanse Diet or Lemonade diet gained popularity when Beyonce Knowles a famous US pop star was reported to have used it to lose 20 pounds in just 10 days.

Though Beyonce was reported not to recommend it as a weight loss strategy, its raise as a celebrity weight loss diet was imminent.

Maple syrup diet was first developed as The Master Cleanse detoxing liquid diet supposedly by Stanley Burroughs. The then detox diet was captured in a book by the same name in 1976. Though there claims to similar protocols as early as 1930's.

The protocol was actually developed as a detox, fasting and cleansing eating regime that is to detoxify, eliminate diseases and supposedly provoke your body to healthier eating habits.

The premise of the diet is that over the course of the ten days, the body will begin to heal itself and eradicate diseases because it no longer needs to concentrate its energies towards digestion.

Over the years, the protocol has evolved to lean more towards losing weight. The logic behind Master Cleanse for weight loss is that as the protocol helps you detoxify your body, and so your body starts to lose weight easily. Science has pointed to some evidence that your body store some toxins that it cannot deal with immediately in the fat tissue.

These toxins make it hard for one to lose body fat because the body does not want to poison itself. If you lose the fat, the toxins will be released into your blood stream. So the body tends to hang on to such fat, making it extremely hard to lose weight.

Equally obvious is that this diet is extreme in caloric restriction. Infact, it aims to eliminate or keep to minimum calories for between 10 to 40 days.

There are variations by different people on exactly how to do the Maple Syrup (Master Cleanse) Diet. Strictly speaking though, you do it for 14 days. The first 10 days involve taking only the cleansing juice; no solid foods allowed. The next 4 days involve easing out of the diet slowly as you re-introducing solid foods.

There are technically two parts to this fasting diet. The juice concoction that you drink 8 to 12 glasses a day; and a "flush".

To make a days master cleanse juice, take a clean one-gallon jug and pour in three quarts of water (not distilled), one cup lemon juice (actual squeezed lemon is the best) , one cup pure maple syrup (not maple flavored, but the real stuff) or molasses and one teaspoon cayenne (or as much as you can handle).

Add all the ingredients in and shake. Shake again before each drink to avoid any segments settling at the bottom. Drink at least 8 glasses of this juice daily. Better still, drink 12.

The second part is the flush. You also need to do this daily.

This salt water flush is evidently a powerful tool in removing waste from the colon. You must use sea salt for the flush. Start with 2 teaspoons with 1 liter of room temperature water and drink the solution. If you do not respond to this amount then you will need to use more salt.

Expect 3 to 8 bowel movements in the following hours which will expel the liter of salt solution - this will be a strong watery diarrhea. This is the flush. It will not be pleasant and you better be next to a toilet.
