I would love to try this. Everyone talks about drinking OJ. But I don't see anywhere where the information is for the last few days or what to eat during that time. Does anyone know of a good site where I can get more info on what to do and when exactly to drink OJ? Thanks so much

it was really hard at first but when i noticed how the pounds disappeared then i got motivated.... and for all those persons who want to try this start light workouts two days before your last day on the diet.

I'm starting the diet today, I need it as a quick weight loss solution. I'm hoping I can stick to it, as I heard it was hard to get over the hunger, but I'm very determined to stick to it as I spent 18$ on the pure maple syrup lol, so I'll see if it works...

Can I eat a salad? How many toxins have u passed? I want to do this this because I'm too fat to wear shorts.
This is a DETOX regimen. NOT A DIET. And it's so clear
about that!
No food for 10 DAYS not 3 or 4 but 10 days.
Only 6-12 glasses of purified water, fresh lemon juice, 100% maple syrup and cayenne pepper.
What is so difficult to understand? LIQUID DETOX. NO FOOD WHATSOEVER.
If you want to wear shorts again follow THe Biggest Losers diet book. I think that is probably good for weight.
This regimen is only to clean your system... you won't lose any fat.

I am starting this detos today. I have 2 friends who have already done the detox and lost about lbs each. i would just like to remind people that this is not really a diet. It is a detox. The purpose of the master cleanse is to get rid of all the toxins in your body. If you have the book it states that you can slowly ease your way into the diet. Instead of starting off with day 1 and just drinking the lemonade mix, you can have a small dinner. then on the 2nd day you can have organic fruits for dinner and then the 3rd day a vegtable soup and then starting from day 4 and on you just drink the liquid. It may have to get you adjusted to it if it is too hard to completely jump into a diet with no solids.
The lemonade mix doesn't taste too bad, but the cayenne pepper does make it kind of spicy.
if some of you are wondering where you can get the grade B maple syrup you can usually get it from an all natural grocery store. In wisconsin where i'm from I got it from an Outpost Natural Foods.
well anyways good luck people!

I am so excited to start this. I must work on my willpower. I started it Monday afternoon and quit at midnight eating a delicious pecan salad with white wine. Okay okay now I am ready tomorrow morning no quiting. I will have laxative tea with senna tonight drink salt water for go my coffee (which will kill me) and drink my tea for 10 days. Today is March 3, 2010. I will keep you posted. Wish me luck! God Bless you

I just started five minutes ago. I'm going to try this until I run out of maple syrup which will be quick but I'll see how it goes from there if I want to keep it up. So far it doesn't taste bad, a lil spicy but not bad lets just see if I can keep it up.
