The Demi Moore cleanse that she and Ashton Kutcher are doing is called the Master Cleanse. This diet has been around for over 60 years and celebrities often use it to lose weight or get toned up for the red carpet or specific movie roles. If you remember Beyonce on Oprah talking about dropping weight for her role in Dreamgirls, you will remember that she also did a version of the Master Cleanse.
So far, Demi and Ashton are doing pretty good. They posted on their Twitter accounts that they were going for a walk with the dogs and that day 2 was easier than day 1. However, Ashton did want a “steak, beer and a Blow Pop” yesterday. Poor guy. The Master Cleanse is quite strict but you definitely can lose weight from doing it. So how does it work?
- 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon Juice (about 1/2 a Lemon) FRESH SQUEEZED!
- 2 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup (kind of expensive but DON’T substitute!)
- 1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper (powder)
- Ten oz of filtered water
You should drink at least 8 glasses of this per day (8 oz glasses) but you can drink more. No food is consumed while doing the Master Cleanse. In addition to the lemonade drink, you should also use a natural laxative which could be either a salt water flush, or a caffeine free tea laxative. The whole point of the Master Cleanse is to clean out the system and detoxify the body. The side result of this tends to be great amounts of weight loss. Ah Demi Moore – Cleanse and get even MORE gorgeous? She is already smokin’ hot but Iguess everyone needs to tone up here and there.
Most people stick with just doing the cleanse for 10 days but some people have done 30 or even 40 days. If you are just doing the lemonade cleanse for the first time, you should not go for longer than 10 days. Then you can ease into a light, healthful eating plan for about week and try the cleanse again. Basically, you should work your way up to doing the cleanse for longer periods of time, not just jump into not eating for 30 days if you have never done it before. Some report losing up to 22 pounds in 10 days and another lady on YouTube lost over 30 pounds doing it for 40 days. Basically, you lose the most right in the beginning, but then it slows down. Also, people tend to gain back a lot because when they are finished, they don’t come of it properly, end up binging like crazy and pack on the pounds.
