The Lemon Detox Diet ordinarily costs around $75 and it hard to understand why, when all the ingredients are so cheap. Below are a list of the ingredients and the recipe on how to make the lemon detox drink yourself.
Dont get sucked in with a fad diet. We have natural, proven diet plans created by nutritionists and health experts. From Low GI to Vegetarian to High Protein, we have a diet plan to suit you. Check them out!
To make 1 glass of lemon detox drink add:
- 20ml (1 tablespoon) Palm Tree Syrup (you can buy at most Sri Lankan or Indian food stores) $7.95 for 750ml;
- 20ml (1 tablespoon) freshly squeezed lemon juice (half a lemon), $0.5 from your local supermarket;
- Half a pinch of cayenne pepper (to taste), $2 from your local supermarket;
- 250ml of water;
You can have the drink warm or at room temperature.
On the Lemon Detox Diet, dieters are encouraged to have a large glass of water each day with 1 teaspoon of salt, which helps stimulate bowl movements. This can also be substituted with Senna tea (1 teaspoon) in the evening if the salt water drink can not be stomached.
In addition, the actual syrup used for the Lemon Detox Diet is enriched with vitamins. As such if you follow a home recipe it is recommended you have a multi-vitamin or mega multi-vitamin each day.
To follow the diet you are meant to have between 6-10 glasses of the detox drink each day and nothing else (except for the morning salt drink or herbal tea). The detox process is meant to be followed for between 3 7 days.
Whilst American Lifestyle & Fitness recognises there may be some benefits in riding the body of toxins, we do not recommend this diet for weight loss purposes and should only be undertaken in consultation with your doctor.
This article serves to highlight the high cost of this diet (approx $75) when it only costs around $10 to make yourself!
