Beyonce´S "Lemonade Diet": What Everyone Ought To Know About It.

By now, I'm sure you have heard about the pop singer/actress Beyonce's Lemonade album, exclusively streaming on Tidal. The singer is known for her melodic voice and fierce performances but also is admires for her curvy and framed physiques. Several years ago, Beyonce admitted to losing weight, at her own free will, using the “Lemonade Detox” or “Master Cleanse”. This detoxification method was created in 1941 by renowned dietician, Stanley Burroughs and has been for several decades all over the world, giving amazing results for both detoxification and weight loss. This detox gained a bit more popularity when Beyonce shed about 20lbs. within 2 weeks for her role in Dreamgirls and Tom Hanks lost 53lbs. for his role in Castaway. So what is the Lemonade Detox or Master Cleanse?


The Lemonade Detox is a mixture of pure lemon juice, grade b Maple syrup and cayenne pepper in water that should be consumed at least 6-12 times daily; no other form of food should be eaten during this detox cleanse. Along with the daily intake of this mixture, an herbal laxative tea before bed and salted water in the morning helps in flushing out your system; this detox is recommended for a minimum of about 10 days. There are several goals that inspired the Lemonade Detox creation, when followed the detox

  • Removes chemical impurities in the body

  • Gives your digestive tract a break

  • Eliminates toxins from the body

  • Wards off illness lurking in your immune system

  • Kills parasites in the flora of the intestinal walls

  • Burns excess fat storage

Because weight or fat loss is a by-product of this cleanse due to the release of hard to burn toxins lodged in fat pockets, it is referred to as a “Reducing Diet”. The benefits and purpose of the Lemonade Cleanse is simply amazing, it serves your body in the most healthiest manner as its purpose is

  • To dissolve and eliminate toxins and congestion that have formed in any part of the body. To cleanse the kidneys and the digestive tract system.

  • To cleanse and detoxify the colon tract.

  • To purify the glands and cells throughout the entire body.

  • To eliminate all unusable waste and hardened material in the joints and muscles.

  • To relieve pressure and irritation in the nerves, arteries, and blood vessels.

  • To build a healthy blood stream.

  • To keep youth and elasticity regardless of our years.


Many skeptics might believe that this is a “fad” and they couldn’t be any further from the truth because if properly followed this cleanse will provide the adequate amount of calorie consumption needed for one day. Hunger should not be a problem either on this cleanse if the intake of the mixture is continuous, hence the 6-12 glasses a day requirement. I would recommend having a bottle on two on hand to sip on if you are going to be out and about. Within a few days of this cleanse, most people have reported a surge in energy, an improved overall feeling in the body and a loss of certain cravings.


Lemons are packed full of Vitamin C, which is known to be an immune and energy booster. But did you also know that lemons are natural remedy for dissolving kidney and gall bladder stones, washing out the bladder & colon, and eliminating the body of calcium deposits. And if that’s not enough, lemons are diuretic with antimicrobial effect that flushes out toxic substances in the body while helping to destroy bacteria in the intestines, bladder, and colon.


Cayenne pepper comes from a chemical called Capsaicin, same chemical in pepper spray. When ingested cayenne soothes the digestive tract and stimulates the flow of stomach secretions and saliva. The ability of cayenne to regulate blood flow makes it a vital ingredient in the Lemonade Diet for speeding up the release and elimination of toxins in the blood stream.


The reason why Grade B maple syrup is required over Grade A is due to its healthier nutrients that has not been destroyed through refinery process. Grade B Maple syrup is loaded with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins B2, B5, B6, B3, Biotin, and Folic, calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and Amino Acids. The nutrient packed Grade B Maple Syrup will have an average of 100-200 calories per serving of the Lemonade Cleanse beverage.


Here is the recipe for the Lemonade Cleanse mixture for a single cup serving and for a day’s serving, which is about 8 cups of the mixture.

* 1/2 lemon or 2 tbsp of lemon juice
* 1 tbsp of pure grade B maple syrup
* 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper (red) or to taste
* 8 oz of purified water

* 4 lemons
* 8-16 tbsp of grade B maple syrup
* 1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper
2 Liters of purified water


It is strongly recommended to incorporate in this regimen Uniodized sea salt in a liter of warm water and Laxative tea such as Green tea to aid in the removing of toxins from the body. This uniodized sea salt water will help to flush out your entire digestive tract and colon, ridding it of plaque and debris from your intestine walls, and also get rid of the parasites in your tract. The herbal tea or laxative can be taken either morning or evening, however, if the uniodized sea salt is taken in the morning then the tea should be only taken in the evening.
