Aimee and I started the master cleanse today. That means that we can only drink water mixed with lemons, cayenne pepper and maple syrup for 10 days, I think I might do it for 5, we’ll see.
This is how you do it:
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice. Burroughs (the founder/inventor of the master cleanse) recommends organic lemons, fresh, not bottled juice. Limes may be substituted. Lemon zest and pulp may be added, making sure that the lemons are organic and not artificially colored or treated with pesticides.
2 tablespoons of maple syrup. This must be pure maple syrup, not pancake syrup.
1/10 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Burroughs insists that cayenne chili pepper be used, but permits ramping up from a lesser amount if the taste needs getting used to.
Water. Burroughs recommends a 10-ounce glass of medium hot water, but also allows cold water to be used. Some have interpreted “10-ounce glass” to mean 8 ounces of actual water. Since Burroughs also allows plain water to be drunk during the fast in addition to the lemonade, this doesn’t seem important.
