Say No to These Weight Loss Diet Scams!
The Master Cleanser Diet
The celebrity lemon diet is also called the ‘master cleanser’ diet. In this diet, one has to observe a 10 day long fast, which supposedly aids in flushing out toxins from one’s body. The observer of the diet consumes around 6 to 12 glasses of lemon juice mixed with sea salt.
The mixture of lemon juice involves maple syrup, filtered water, pepper and lime juice. The person may not eat any solid foods. The diet is pretty tough and it is said that eating crushed ice helps. One is advised not to exercise or do any kind of activity in which the person is most likely to get tired.
Many experts believe that this diet does not work as a complete solution to weight loss. Though the Vitamin C found in lemon helps in amplifying fat oxidation, which leads to sudden weight loss, the diet is devoid of the right balance of nutrients such as carbohydrates and proteins. This diet can be best compartmentalized as a model diet and works best for people who need to look thin fast.
The lemon diet in no way promotes a healthy lifestyle and is a happy part of fad diets which may or may not work. Though, including a bit of lime juice in your everyday diet ensures a good supply of much needed Vitamin C, it is simply not the best solution for your weight loss.
