5 Surprising benefits of the lemon detox diet


Many people have been talking recently about the Master Cleanse, also known as the Lemonade Diet. While some tout it as a great way to lose weight while still cleansing your body of toxin build-up, other worry that it is too nutrient poor and can do more harm than good. While there is still some controversy over this, there do seem to be some claims for the diet that have proven true and these are discussed below.

Stops unhealthy eating habits

Since the Master Cleanse in a liquid diet, it does temporarily stop any bad eating habits and gives your body a break from unhealthy foods. This by itself can help many individuals begin to lose weight. Thus, detox is good not only for what it gives you (a good cleansing of the entire body) but by what you do not get (more unhealthy foods). This can save you several thousand calories over the course of this cleanse and hopefully break some bad eating habits as well.

Improves digestion

Since you will not be eating solid food during this cleanse, it will give your digestive tract the chance to catch up and to reduce its workload for a few days, since normally it is working almost constantly to process the foods that you have eaten. A good detox can help cleanse the bowels and improve the efficiency with which your body processes what you eat.

Increases energy

One health problem many people complain of is lack of energy from day to day. This can often be the result of consuming bad foods that will spike your blood sugar levels and leave you feeling sluggish due to a slowed metabolism. A detox, on the other hand, can cleanse you out and leave you feeling more refreshed and energized naturally.

Sharpens mental skills

Anyone who has ever eaten a heavy lunch and then felt sluggish and dopey all afternoon knows exactly how bad eating habits can play havoc with your mental alertness and ability to focus. A detox program will remove the excessive amounts of bad food from the diet and you will be amazed at your improved powers of learning, memory and concentration as you complete this course.

Boosts immunity

The Lemonade Diet is extremely high in Vitamin C, and the extra doses of this vitamin that you get when you are doing this cleanse can go a long way to boosting your immune system and making it easier for your body to fight off illness and disease. The immunity will also be helped by a removal of toxins and other harmful substances from your body.

So even though there is still some controversy surrounding this diet, there are definite benefits to be had as well. It would be good to consider these benefits before beginning the cleanse to see if they suit your individual needs and to determine if you could benefit from this program.
