What is an easy way to detoxify your system and lose weight? Not fasting, not liquid or fad diets. The Lemon Juice Diet is a safe and delicious eating plan that goes far beyond the "Master Cleanse" program used by celebrities for quick, short-term fixes. Instead of just suggesting dieters drink a concoction of lemon juice, cayenne, and maple syrup, The Lemon Juice Diet starts there and then integrates lemon juice into a healthier, easy to maintain, long-term plan. Lemon is a natural powerhouse; its great flavor makes it an easy addition to your diet and its low glycemic index provides a steady stream of energy, without the sugar high and subsequent crash we get from high GI foods. The Lemon Juice Diet capitalizes on lemon juice's natural power to lower blood sugar, create a feeling of fullness, provide vitamin C and stimulate the liver for maximum fat-burning. Lemon juice can even boost immunity and brain function, fight cholesterol, and fire up your metabolism. With clear meal plans, delicious recipes and easy exercise tips, The Lemon Juice Diet is a quick and easy way to long-lasting good health.
