I have been eyeing in doing this but I am still doubting because this may cause major muscle mass loss due to lack of protein intake in the next few days of the program. Also, I am not yet rooting to shift to a vegan diet since I believe that having a blood type B, my body primarily feeds well on red lean meat, fish, poultry and dairy products. This idea was taken from the book, Eat Right For Your Type: The Official Blood Type Diet.
Most of us tend to think that lemon is acidic – in fact it is! So will it cause acidic stomach? According to Dr. Robert Young:
“Well, isn’t lemon juice acidic too?” It’s actually true that if you took some pH paper and tested lemon juice it would test acid, but once the lemon juice is metabolized in the body, the inherent alkalizing mineral salts contained in the lemon juice (and the bicarbonates that it pulls into the blood during digestion) leaves a residue of alkaline ash in the bloodstream. Also because of their low sugar content, lemons and limes do not ferment in the blood.”
Therefore, lemons remain acidic in content but when metabolized by your body with a neutral pH of water, it has alkalising effect, which is definitely good for you.
Going back, before doing this regimen, make sure that you pay a visit to a doctor because this master cleanse diet or lemon diet is not intended for everyone *inserts disclaimer here*. But if you are really eager to lose weight and perform some toxic-eradication in your body, here are the ingredients:
- 2 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (approximately 1/2 lemon)
- 2 tablespoon genuine maple syrup Grade B (not maple flavored sugar syrup)
- 1/10 cayenne pepper (red pepper) or to taste
- 8 oz. of water in room temperature
- 1 tsp of sea-salt (not the usual rock salt)
It is very important that every morning before you drink the lemon juice drink of up to 25 to 32 ounces of h20 with 1 tsp of sea-salt. Most of the stuff you needed can be bought in a grocery (for salt, lemons and lime) and the rest at Healthy Options.
